OUR CORE VALUES...
One of our core values here at AlreadyPrepared.com is to seek after, understand and live truth with total integrity.
In our activities, we seek to proclaim charity, compassion, understanding, and love towards all peoples, nations, kindred's and tongues. We are true friends to all people everywhere.
We strive to teach true and correct principles that lift and inspire others to greater heights of positive personal and professional achievement. First and foremost we are people builders.
We also believe that we are physical beings, created by God, working on developing a spiritual life, closer to God, each in their own way and also spiritual beings experiencing and learning from our physical life.
We seek to create an atmosphere which promotes and teaches growth and prosperity in all areas of life: mental, emotional, spiritual, intellectual, social, physical and financial.
We do not believe in the concept of scarcity, i.e., that there is a finite amount of fixed and unchanging resources in the world. We believe that there is enough and more resources for all of the world and its people. (We simply have yet to grasp and understand most of these resources). God has not created a world of fixed and limited resources in which one person's gain will require another person's loss. Our only limit is our failure to understand and properly use the gifts, knowledge, materials, and tools that God has given us.
We believe in the free agency of all people everywhere; wherein that agency is tempered by love, respect and charity towards others. Gain should never be acquired by ignorant or involuntary loss of another. We believe that the only true and lasting way for all to prosper is through knowledgeable win-win actions, learning, planning, preparation and training.
We teach a lifestyle of family unity, focused direction, positive goals, and uplifting achievement.
We teach others how to develop a personal and family lifestyle of safety and security that prepares them to meet any future without fear.
We practice and teach provident living.
We strive to teach others about themselves and their relationship with the world around them, particularly in winter, cold weather, and emergency situations. We trust that our students and followers will be more functional, reliable, and safe, especially in the cold, snow, winter, and all types of emergencies and disasters. We do not want them to just endure the cold or a crises, but to find joy and adventure in it (even at its most severe) through heightened awareness, understanding, knowledge, and skills. It is also our wish that our students pass this understanding and joy onto others and thereby magnify our efforts.
We believe that life is an adventure to be experienced and enjoyed to its fullest. There is no doubt that tomorrow will come and that "things" happen, but how you are prepared to meet tomorrow will make all the difference in the world. If you are prepared for the worst, then no matter what happens, it will be an adventure.
We do not believe that there is tragedy in the loss of wealth, possessions, health, or even life. Although loss of these things can be painful, inconvenient, or life changing, there is only tragedy in losing who you are, what you stand for, and where you are going.
We earnestly strive to make a permanent positive difference in the lives of individuals and families and thereby societies and nations.
We believe that in some measure, by God's direction, both great and small, the world will be a better place for our having passed through here. In this manner we are a tool in the Master's hand.
