Welcome to Step Back Into Life, and our very first post.

The idea for this community organisation and life change efforts officially started on June 29, 2017, but in essence, has been brewing around my mind for a few months.

But what is it and what does it have to do with you?

To understand that, maybe it’s best to just take a moment and have a thought about what is going around in your world. Humankind, our particular species, has never before experienced the kind of life that we are experiencing right now.  Everything we need and desire has been taken care of.  Our basic needs to survive are mostly supported (in general), with abundant amounts of food, clothing and shelter available to us with minimal amount of personal effort to acquire it. That’s not even talking about the unmeasurable amount of non-essential material items that is available to us at any time we like.

This current outcome was likely driven not just by greed, but by our generational desires to make the world around us “easier” and better for our children and for their children. Technology advancements and our quest for knowledge have been primary tools of our betterment, and what many believed would bring more time, more freedom and ultimately happiness in our lives.

But time and freedom has never arrived. Happiness is not even in the picture.

Technology, rather than freeing us, has now bound us to a certain way of life that completely separates us from each other when we are sitting right next to the person that we are supposed to be connecting with. This may be our spouses or partners, our kids, our parents, our friends, the nature around us – Life.

Isn’t it about time that we started to take back what is ours and what we as humans are striving for? Step Back Into Life’s purpose is to encapsulate the general idea of not only why we are here, but to remind us of the important things in life and to respect the world that we have been created into.

With this, we are starting slowly, but surely. Our first initiative is going to be a simple one which will be announced separately.  We don’t know where this will take us and where we will be, but the important thing is our journey together, to help us all grow together as humans. We need your involvement, the community effort to bring momentum to these initiatives, and I am looking forward to hearing from you and joining me on this.
