Space: the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Its five-year mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no man has gone before. – Star Trek
Growing up I used to love to watch re-runs of Star Trek, the TV series. The show’s episodes, made in the 1960’s, would chronicle the adventures of a crew on a spaceship as it would explore the universe.
Part of the crew’s exploratory mission included upholding the Prime Directive, which stated that the crew was not to interfere with the social development of the worlds they were investigating.
A Prime Directive in reality can be defined as a chief objective, goal, requirement or a guiding principle.
As we journey through our life, boldly going in our singular experience, it is important for us to consider what is our Prime Directive, our chief objective or goal.
Long ago my prime directive might have been described as to accumulate as much money as possible. Luckily, I woke up to a better way and today I want to share with you how to get more out of life. My Prime Directive is to help you optimize your life by practicing spiritual energy efficiency.
My belief is that all things come from God and that everything in the universe is some manifestation of energy, which ultimately emanated from God.
A prime mover is an engine or machine that converts energy from one form into another. An example of a prime mover that is becoming more common in the United States is a wind turbine.
A wind turbine harnesses the energy of the wind, rotating its blades, which in turn produces electricity. The wind’s thermal energy is converted into electrical energy through the wind turbine prime mover.
The percentage of the converted energy relative to the initial energy is a measure of the efficiency of the prime mover. Today our electrical prime movers are becoming more efficient thanks to engineering and design breakthroughs.
But what about how well we convert the God given energy that we have been graced with? How well do we convert this precious life into meaningful work? How well do we express the unique talents and gifts we have been given?
These questions will ultimately be answered by each of us. For it is up to each of us to live their life and hopefully to activate as much of their full-potential as possible. As we activate this potential we have more energy to embolden us.
As Prime Movers we are stewards of divine energy that animates us and that is sourced from the creator of all things.
My Prime Directive is to be the best Prime Mover I can. What is yours?
