JAE’S JOURNEY TO ONE COMMUNITY

My vision for One Community began with a near-death experience at the age of 20. Almost dying caused me to completely re-evaluate my life path and goals. My college engineering aspirations, aspirations that would predictably lead to most of the best years of my life sitting behind a desk, were no longer attractive. I could no longer imagine living a life like that and I changed course and began a self-improvement and entrepreneurial path instead. 

This new path led me to years of classes focused on health, longevity, and the physical and emotional benefits of living a fulfilled and productive life. I built two successful businesses around my passion for these topics and began to create the socialpsychologicalnutritional, and sustainable housing foundations of what is now One Community. At this point, I didn’t know how I was going to achieve One Community, or even that it would be called “One Community,” but I knew that as an individual, and as a people, we could live much happier, much healthier, and much more sustainably than we are living now.  

From 2006 to 2008 I had a series of additional life-transforming events, including the birth of my son, that made it clear that the time had come to take the next steps toward building what I’d been envisioning, discussing, and outlining over the previous decade. Newly inspired, I sold my holistic health clinic to dedicate more time to creating this vision.

After over 2 years of searching, my wife Sara and I identified the perfect property for One Community in 2010. Finding this property was the milestone I needed to make One Community my full-time focus and I’ve averaged 30-40 hours a week into organizing and developing One Community ever since.

MEETING JACK REED

In 2011, I read the book “The Next Evolution: A Blueprint for Transforming the Planet” and then got to meet the author, Jack Reed (now a consultant to the project). Jack spent three years with a team working together to design what he describes as a model for living for The Highest Good of All that is capable of completely transforming life as we know it on this planet. When I read the book, the model was almost identical to what I’d spent the last 15 years creating and outlining on this website – so identical that it even included some of the same quotes from our website and many of the same studies I’d encountered in my holistic health classes. What was different, was the clear intent that the reason for creating a “One Community” or “Next Evolution” wasn’t just to demonstrate and share comprehensive sustainability and a better way of living, it was to specifically transform the entire planet by bringing together people interested in living and creating for The Highest Good of All and teaching others how to do it too

Realizing this was ultimately what we are capable of, and meant to do, and seeing in print a model almost identical to the One Community model, made me come to really feel that what Jack and myself (and probably many others I haven’t met yet) are envisioning isn’t my model, or his model, it’s THE model for the next step in this magnificent and ever evolving human story. Feeling this at the deepest part of my being has added endless fuel to my desire to succeed, an unwavering commitment to the complete vision, and a knowingness that we will achieve it.

 

CREATING A WORLD THAT WORKS FOR EVERYONE

EXAMPLE OF THE KINDS OF PROJECTS I DO WITH MY SON

Family time and resources for projects like the one shown below are a big part of what I think One Community has to offer to people. I spent my whole life working to get to the point that I could be at home as much as possible and be a really hands-on parent with my son. Projects like the one below are some of the most fun things I do with him and I think engagement like this between parents and their kids is some of the most important learning and family time. I also believe EVERYONE should have the time and resources to do things like this with their children, and too many in today’s world just don’t.

The One Community open source model for sustainable-living replication, our open source education program, culture of personal growth, fulfilled living model, and community contribution model are all designed to be an improvement upon current living paradigms in support of this and more. This is true through providing people with more available time to spend with those they care about most and doing things they enjoy, more options than almost anywhere else for how to spend their time, and True Community support for all of the above.

Thank you for your interest in our project,

Jae
