After posting on Facebook a message today, 10/10/12. I felt the need to develop and expand on my point of view. Here is the facebook message of 10/10/12:
“Economically it does not matter who wins the elections, there is no way out of our economical collapse. Our system can no longer survive, the monster has started eating itself, it has now reached its heart.
We cannot fix the problem with the same tools that it took to create it.
I believe that Obama will make the collapse process smoother and slower as he cares for the people. Romney will take us right to it. But no matter what the economical collapse is coming. WAKE UP!!! IT IS COMING!!!
My deepest fear with this election is the potential for a war. I feel that this is the true question. Obama will do his best to prevent it while Romney won’t and will take us straight to it.
ECONOMICAL COLLAPSE INEVITABLE, WAR ON THE OTHER END CAN BE AVOIDED.
Are you ready? Are you ready to change your habits, to get shaken up, to have your life crumble around you? Are you ready to live in a world where without each other you cannot survive. Needing community for our food, water, healing, our home… The end of money as we know it.
Are you ready to loose your mansion, to loose your beautiful car, Iphone 5, your pseudo health insurance? Are you ready to focus your energy on what you need to survive, what life is truly about so that you can eat, grow a garden, share meals with your neighbors, care for your neighbors children and each others health…. Are you ready for the collapse of what you think to be true. WAKE UP!! IT IS COMING!!!
Our tools need to be refined, our values, what we see as truth needs to be reevaluated. We must stop hoping that the government has the answer to our crises. The government itself is in a belief system/story that no longer functions and they cannot bring us what we seek for ourselves; we must start building from within, restore the Human Nature, give it’s proper place to technology and replace a world of money with a world of resources. There are enough resources in the world for all, there is not enough money in the world.
If money disappears is it the end of the world? Think of it, all of our skills will still be there, our friends, our factories, fields, and knowledge. Only money would be gone. Get ready at home with yourself, your loved ones and start participating. Be curious about how to create a new world and a new economy.
Healing starts within.
Why do I speak of an inevitable economical collapse? Well this is simple arithmetic’s as President Obama would say, but does not say. Our economy is based on growth, selling more goods, more products, more services in order to keep growing. The problem is, all has been and is being sold.
All the services and relationships are sold, from caring for our kids, to organizing our home, our thoughts, cooking for us, getting our trash out…
All the resources of Earth have been transformed into goods, there is nothing left on Earth to transform. We have transformed it all already and are selling it all.
We already have and soon we will see many more extinctions of animal species, especially fish, that we all like so much on our plates, petroleum, fossil gas, wood, etc. We will soon run out of all of these.
So in order to grow you need more and more correct, then how do you keep growing when there is no more, when there is nothing else to sell? On top of it the population has been growing rapidly thus increasing the gap between what can be sold and what is needed to maintain care for the populations.
We are left with only one option; we must invade other planets with our space ships and start exploiting what they have to offer. After all we are the Master’s of the Universe.
Only one problem, this won’t happen. WAKE UP, we are not the Master’s of the Universe, we will not conquer the Universe and other planets with our spaceships.
It might sound funny to you and me, but this is how the foundations of society and economy are functioning: perpetual growth.
I am disappointed in the politicians and economists who still claim that a solution is possible in this system. Obama speaks about simple arithmetic’s when he discounts Romney’s approach. Well I will do the same to discount all the point of views that support and maintain economical growth as our salvation.
This is nonsense, WAKE UP! Only 1+1=2 not 0+0
If there are no more carrots in your garden you just can’t sell any more carrots.
Well this is what is happening now, they are no more carrots but we are still acting as if they were. We function on an invisible non-existent carrot supply system. At some point someone will need to eat their carrot and unfortunately they will finally see that there has never been any… Tatatata Magic!!!
So what are we suppose to do? Many don’t have solutions and can just express their hopelessness.
Well not anymore we have choices, here is one.
The truth is we must learn how to decrease our economy. Interesting concept isn’t? The first time I saw this it made me think a minute. If it is your first time, I invite you to think about it too.
The idea is nothing new as economists 100 years ago were already talking about it but were shut down by the monster. Today it is coming back to life strongly! Many economists, visionaries and thinkers are saying the same thing and are supporting it. It is about negative interest, free money and a world in which our economy is in balance and in accordance with the amount of resources available on Earth. Money no longer holds our primary focus but the amount of resources does, how they are used and cared for.
The economy grows when we take good care of ourselves, our communities and of our planet, it decreases when we don’t. In this system our interest is to maintain and care for the resources of the common wealth (ie: forests, oceans, petroleum, animal and human beings). I will not describe the whole system, as this is not my specialty, I will let the specialists introduce it to you themselves. Especially Charles Eisenstein, please review his work, he has gathered and created many ideas, concepts and solutions around creating a new economy.
Today we are in the phase of having to decrease our economy because our resources will soon be all gone. Indeed those who take the resources from the common wealth and pollute for their own purpose and greed shall pay rights to pollute and rights to use the common wealth to all of us. The common wealth is after all ours (we should have something to say). This would lead to an un-economically viable project, as the cost of polluting and using the common wealth would be way too high. The less the company pollutes and uses the common wealth, the cheaper the production, the more money one may receive. Let’s use then the never ending supplies of the common wealth: wind, sun, ocean currents and more. These cost nothing and are abundant.
The other idea is perishable money. Money is the only thing I know of that is not perishable. It does fluctuate but does not perish. Everything else in life perishes, why not money. Money is therefore based on a model different from life itself and that has nothing to do with it. (You may want to read about the history of money for more info) As a result, money cannot match life’s needs and purposes. Charles Eisenstein speaks wonderfully of this issue.
Today we must decrease are consumption and learn how to live with what we need, not what we think we need. I know this is not what most want, we want big mansions, big cars and the latest Iphone 5 (I enjoyed a jock I read on social media: “You are buying an Iphone5, but you are sleeping on a air mattress!”).
This is the end of this road, of this dream. This will NOT happen! We will not all have mansions with four bedrooms, three cars, four TVs and the latest Iphone. We must dream something new, something in accordance with what we have learned, with the need to care for ourselves and our resources: Earth.
Here is my specialty, what I can speak of directly. Why are we stuck in this?
We all know within us that this is not working but we maintain ourselves in denial, in our beliefs systems, in our life story, in our prison, our physical suffering/pain and we are very attached to it.
Well there are two voices talking to us, one that feeds us information from the rational world we live in, that is influenced by our society, culture, family lineage and life story. A story in which men are to control women, treat them as tools and inferior beings. They refer to each other as kings that rule territories thanks to the size of their genitals, their dollar bills and weapons. I mean this literally. From the CEO of a huge corporation to the cocaine dealer down the street, same way of thinking, different context.
Women or queens are to satisfy the kings’ expectations and needs, if not they are rejected and punished for it. They also get rejected and punished if they show having more strength and beauty than what the kings or other queens can handle. The kings can quickly feel that they are loosing power. Other queens can be threatened to loose their queen’s status. Women are asked to show their potential only if approved by men, in a way that is limited by the men insecure need to control their people, their women/wives and children.
Many however are no queens, nor kings. They feel that they don’t belong, they want to become queens and kings but they can’t; thus leading to depression, poor self-image, addictions, etc. This also happens to the queens and kings themselves as ultimately the other voice speaks.
The other voice speaks to us at night when we are alone, it is our irrational voice telling us that none of this is true, that there is more in us, more we need to accomplish and create. That women are to be honored, liberated, respected and cared for. That men can work together, use their strength to create community, to share and care for their neighbors, brothers and sisters. The voice wants us to be happy, it wants us to connect, express ourselves and wants to know that we matter and have our place.
We resonate with this voice and we know that it holds a lot of truth.
But the next day we wake up and listen to the rational blablabla that is fed to us via TV, marketing adds, movies, music…
The irrational world seems them so far distant and so unreal, but leaves in us an imprint that if not acknowledged and acted upon leads to depression, poor self-image, addictions, etc.
This other voice has been, so far for the most part, forgotten or seen as naïve, maybe even crazy for some.
Well, let me bring it to you, not anymore. The discomfort and the pain of having to live in that blablabla make it so uncomfortable that many can’t take it anymore.
Visionaries, philosophers, economists and leaders in the field of “the creation of a new world” are as we speak taking a stand, as I am, and are saying THIS IS ENOUGH!
They are bringing proposals and concrete solutions. These leaders are gaining more and more momentum and respect from the population, as we are discovering that these messages and proposals do actually sound and look like something we can do, that we relate to and most of all that they feel good!
Ultimately our heart wants to feel good, doesn’t it? What about yours? Well guess what the heart is irrational and operates in the irrational world. We must then pay more attention to integrating this part of ourselves if we want to feel good.
This is where transformation streaming comes in to facilitate the integration of the irrational self into our rational world, clear the traumas of the rational world so that we can create something as simple as feeling good in our society, relationships, economy, in our world.
So as I mentioned in my facebook message, we must learn how to loose and let go of what we think we need and learn how to build community to support each others needs that we can no longer satisfy on our own. Many have already started loosing what they had as you read this, you may be one of them or your turn might be coming soon.
I speak from experience. It has started for me. I am still maintaining myself but not by much. What is helping me is to choose to let go of what I do not need and to engage with my community in a new way, making myself available to share, support and be supported. Many are not as lucky as I am. More and more do not have enough food nor have a roof to sleep under and have no community.
If we do not start paying attention to what we need and don’t need and do not create a community for ourselves, many more will have no food, nor roof.
To this statement I get for response that I am being dark here. Well actually I feel that I bring light. Listen, if getting rid of what we don’t need and creating community that supports each other is darkness, then what is it now?
Let’s take a moment to look around. How do you feel right now? Most people feel unaccomplished, can’t pay their bills, can’t care for their family, can barely feed themselves, are in debt and do not get any support. People are depressed, over weight, taking pills, fighting other money, competing for just about anything and in the end feel alone when night comes. This is to me the true darkness.
This transition is bright and sunny if we choose to. It fills up our hearts with “feeling good” for freeing, honoring and reconnecting ourselves and takes care of our rational/physical needs thanks to our community.
It will however be very uncomfortable to the ones that will resist it and want to keep driving a Hummer, as they will feel that their world is coming to an end. Some see a beginning, others the end.
Hopefully this will happen with the decline of our economy and not through a war.
In my heart I hope that we will all come to an agreement that things need to change, but I can feel in me that this might not happen. I foresee resistance in order to maintain the monster. Hopefully the monster will die on its own, without taking us with it.
What are you going to do? Stay asleep and act as if everything is doing fine in this system. WAKE UP and GET READY! We are entering a wild ride, an unknown magical journey, a new ride never experienced by mankind. Will you be awake or asleep? That is up to you.
I am awake, bring it!
WAKE UP! The future is within you.
