418. Deschooling Ourselves: Why and How to Do it?

 

unlearn rethink

After watching Charles Eisenstein’s Deschooling Ourselves workshop video, I realized how important it is to be aware of how much of ‘who we become’ as a person in our society and in relation to others is shaped in and by the schooling system. To this, it would also be unfair to only look at school as the only one problem there is in our society, because schools were created by us human beings in the first place so there’s a human mind behind it all; albeit for all practical purposes, the idea of ‘education’ and the blind trust that parents confer to the schooling system makes of the schooling system set up the most easy way to actually justify integrating values, beliefs, behaviors, ways of thinking reality, ways of relating to others, ways of survival among one another where we are geared to continually having to prove ourselves to be ‘the best’ or ‘the worst’ in a system of standardized marks.

School is also the place where we come to first get in contact with people of different backgrounds, where our initial social clash begins which leads us to start inherently doing a process of preference over principle, which is how we come to build our very first friendships and relationships, where we as children do not  have a full awareness of us in fact being in a closed-system where one gets to be friends with people that could or could not afford some private/public school, and so already from there, we start classifying ourselves based on our socioeconomic background.

I have to say it is also unfortunately the place where parents place their most trust on within the systemically integrated belief that ‘whatever happens in school is just fine’ and that teachers and the government system behind it as education system ‘knows best’ – while parents mostly see this as some free time from their parental duty – or are deliberately also kept busier with long hours of work which is leading to unattended children growing up in front of TV’s, computers plugged into the myriad of boundless information on the internet and learning tricks about drugs and developing sexual deviances as a way to escape the inherent anguish of living in a world where parents must work 24/7 to get money to live, and where you as a child/youngster will invariably have to end up doing the same… I mean, who would not react to that expectative of one’s ‘future’ in this broken world? Yet we dismiss it and actually have come to blame schools, blame media, blame the government, blame parents and so as you can see blaming each other for the problems we have co-created in our society of which school is one great and pivotal pillar of.

There’s a complete structural problem in our society and a large part of it has to do with how we haven’t questioned our sacred institutions like schools and the way they exist nowadays, which from my perspective are more like prisons or reformatory cells, they have always been the brewing ground for behavioral conditioning, human experimentation and indoctrination which goes unnoticed within the idea that there’s always an authority that somehow has a ‘greater understanding,’ because we place our trust on systems of validation, certification and quality-proof standards placed by some organization we’ve defined as government, which are a few individuals that have unfortunately proven to be easily bribed to rather arrange laws and regulations in a way where other individuals can be benefitted from it all – either for profit, for further population control or both. All of this apparatus of authority is currently quite skewed of course and it is rather alarming since school is the spot where kids are mandated to go to every single day – yet, even if kids do not go to a school per se, the same principles of it are still embedded in the way that we organize ourselves, in the way that we related with one another, in the way that we value ourselves, in the way that we choose what we want to do with our lives, in the way that we behave with our families and friends. The sheer idea of ‘education’ as it exists now is only a reinforce and catalyzer of essential mind and behavioral patterns that have existed within us as human beings since the beginning of our species, as they are all existent in the very core programming and functioning of our minds. So, what have we done then? We have only perfected the mechanism to make it a continuous mandatory process for kids to get to like/dislike certain things and make decisions based on, well, mostly fear of survival so that we can keep the same slave system mechanism running. But is it really the system that is the enslaving one? Or is it that we haven’t really realized where the real policeman ‘in the head’ resides in? Hint, the answer is already given in that question.

 

In Charles Eisenstein’s Deschooling Ourselves, a group of people walk through and expose all the behaviors, personalities, quirks and fears that they have become throughout their schooling years, wherein either one would stick to the rules and follow or dissent and rebel in whichever way possible, one would start valuing oneself according to the kind of work you deliver to the teacher, another would seek to prove the teacher wrong, another would seek be approved by them, another just wanted to break free and rebel against all rules… this also included some other more personal aspects like  because in school we also have mostly faced some of our most embarrassing or stressing moments.

I’ve shared before about crying over getting lost during math calculation exercise and not being able to keep track of it, getting so anxious that I burst into tears. From my experience, I’ve shared before about the usual pressure one would get when being ‘on the top’ and so having some classmates trying to ‘take me down/take ‘my place’ and directly letting me know how they would win over me and how they would see me fall and be glad for it, etc. All kinds of bullying also comes when being the one that sticks to all rules and does things ‘to the T,’ which to me for example later on became a way to simply dislike being used as an example for the class, which led me to then want to hide while  still wanting to keep my sense of public recognition. This influenced the way I shaped my main personalities: I started to desire being ‘cool’ for any other reason other than getting straight A’s …  and kind of a ‘rebel’ by liking non-popular things so that I could make it clear that I wasn’t ‘the teacher’s pet’ either for example.

All of these patterns are part of a lengthy self-investigative process that is contained in the pages of this blog as I’ve seen that most of the times when investigating any mind pattern, word or behavior, it invariably goes back to one of those ‘memories of schooling days’ and how some of the most ingrained fight or flight patterns, behaviors, attitudes, self-definitions like qualities and virtues, likes and dislikes as well as career choice a.k.a. who I wanted to be and become as a person, were shaped based on the same education system. To me it also involved a process of sharing a room with either 6 other kids in my first school and then moving onto being with over 35 in the following schools and universities, which is already quite a challenge when it comes to seeing how it is virtually impossible for teachers to be truly aware of students in large classes.

School becomes ‘the place’ where we are supposed to ‘find our ground in life’ and so, it’s quite obvious that we only become copies of the copies of stereotypes that we also acquire from the usual imprinting of professions we are supposed to go veering toward from an early age as part of the social-structure – however along with that, we got movies, TV shows imprinting a whole different set of values with which we believe we are in fact ‘making a free choice’ to do what we want, but we have never even questioned whether what ‘we want’ is in fact something we truly developed for ourselves or something we learned from school or saw on TV or internet.

In essence, we have never really been genuinely ‘ourselves’ as all we have become is copy of the copy of the coping and survival mechanisms we’ve shaped as personalities or professions, and that’s what I mostly have realized also when it comes to investigating myself and my ‘core personalities’ and how everything that I developed as ‘my personality’ was a collection of bits and pieces of popular counter-culture aspects along with a decision to antagonize the system no matter what, while remaining ‘safely’ in it at the same time since I would still like to be the obedient straight A person in school, lol, even if I tried to ‘rebel’ at the end… it just would not work as I couldn’t simply fathom myself being irresponsible at school which involved a sense of responsibility of ‘school being the one thing that I had to do as my main activity’ throughout the years.

What is behind that, for example? Fear of being punished, fear of being left behind, fear of losing my self-value and definition? Fear of losing my ‘throne’ as the first one in the class? Well, these points are definitely something that come to define ‘who one is’ based on a particular setting like school, where we actually acquire this way of thinking based on achievements, values, marks, behaviors and responsibilities that lie not within a common sensical practical outcome, but according to doing things the way they are asked to be done and according to a ranking system that is in no way based on the particular skills and abilities that are unique to each child, that is simply not part of our school system.

At the end of that Deschooling workshop by Eisenstein, the ultimate question remains: how to Deschool ourselves? And I simply realized that actually walking this process of self-investigation, of writing oneself to freedom, of developing self-honesty wherein we investigate our core patterns within ourselves is the best way to deschool ourselves, because in investigating our behaviors, our personalities, our fears, our manias, our weaknesses and strengths, our relationships, our friendships, our first traumas, our first embarrassments, our bullying experiences, our relationship to authority, our ability to learn, our qualities and deficiencies, comparison and judgment toward others, our discriminatory or empathic behaviors, our friendships, our enemies… all of these aspects that one actually gets to first live in school – most of the times – are part of what one can write out for oneself, investigating each pattern within the awareness of writing the experience out to identify how is it that one has limited oneself in such pattern.

So for example, if I had continued to only value myself according to what marks I would get in school, and feel ‘bad’ for getting a lower mark, then I would have continued to seek to get some ‘straight A’s’ or the equivalent way to get such ‘superiority validation’ somewhere else in my world, just because of not wanting to get to the opposite side of that and so lose my self-validation/recognition. So I had to work with understanding ‘who am I as recognition’ and the desire thereof, where am I not valuing myself, how have I accepted and allowed myself to only value myself according to achievements at school? Or how have I believed myself to only be a brain that thinks well? Where am I not actually seeing myself beyond this limited valuing perspective and really seeing through a broader potential that I had probably and most likely would not have developed if I had continued to only stick to my personality and personal desires.

So, deschooling ourselves involves a practical and continuous application of walking a process to self-forgive and let go of all the plethora of perceived flaws, definitions, beliefs, limitations, fears and rather work with developing real self-value, real self-acceptance and skills to develop ourselves to our utmost potential. In this, for example, I had to stop the desire to be recognized by others, while at the same time also walking the opposite polarity – because, as one walks one pattern you also get to understand how the mind works in polarities. And so I realized that along with my desire to be recognized, I also got to fear being recognized and so actually sought to ‘hide’ or become a rather ‘low-key’ individual while still holding on this ‘recognition’ point in place, so essentially I would create my own inner conflict which I even externalized in the way that I would dress in a rather extravagant manner while  at the same time using my body’s posture to indicate that I didn’t want to be seen, so I would hunch while walking because I believed that standing straight was ‘showing off’ and only able to be done by good looking girls for example, lol, yes all of this is a fine example of how we pollute our minds in fact.

So, this is just a tip of the iceberg example that one is actually able to investigate for oneself when looking at all the patterns we’ve become in our lives, not only from school but acquired from parents, from people we watch on TV, from the books we read, from the people we admire, from our friends and people around us, etc. As I’ve mentioned, we’ve become the copies of the copies and so the schooling system, the social system has become nothing but a reflection of these categories and identities existent and developed in our minds wherein we get lost in comparison, judgment and the idea of value in relation to ‘who we are’ within the system, all of which actually enables us to coexist within our current dog-eat-dog mentality, where all that matters is achieving personal glory regardless of who or what is abused and affected by it, or ‘collaterally damaged.’

 

I am a product of this society and I’ve had to walk this rather astounding process of deschooling myself,  of deprogramming myself in my mind while at the same time walking a process of self-creation, which is a continued process of self-investigation of every single moment, every single day wherein one continues to assert oneself as the new integration of common sense, of living principles, of a sense of commonality, of a consideration of what’s best for all, of not following an experience as to ‘how I feel’ or how I believe ‘I should feel/be like/act like/talk like’ to dictate who I am in the moment,  wherein it is a continuous process of letting go of any constrains and limitations that I have previously identified through writing, and have released through the process of self-forgiving behaviors, emotions, feelings, thinking patterns, ideas about myself so that I could then practically and actively work on stopping myself from running-through the same old programmed ‘me.’

Now I place my focus on attention on this self-creation process which is truly a first-timer for us all to be able to walk and do, because it is now that we are for the first time becoming more and more aware of things that were deeply rooted in the unconscious before. Now we are able to slowly but surely as humanity able to spot these patterns and behaviors with greater ease, and I have to say that this then a great opportunity and it does rejoice me to see more and more people starting to question themselves, and the overall world-system, which indicates there’s in fact a great opportunity existent here to change the direction of our lives if more and more people start waking up and smelling reality for what it is so that we can work together to correct and align it.

I must also say that when I speak of this process, it isn’t something I do ‘by myself’ nope, it would have been mostly more difficult I’d say – I walk with a group of people networked through the internet – around the globe – with whom we’ve shared our lives,  our writings for over 7 years now, keeping in constant processes of developing and strengthening our communication and feedback processes to ensure that we don’t get lost in this re-educational process we’re walking, which has to do little to nothing to any regular ‘schooling system,’ but we are all more than certain that more individuals must recognize the vital importance of implementing this self-investigation process as part of our schooling system, learning how to work with our minds as our thoughts, feelings, emotions, to learn how to effectively write them out and communicate about them while integrating a sense of self-support through developing common sense: the consideration of what is best for all. 

It is about time we realize that it makes complete sense to actually focus on empowering each other to learn how to best coexist as human beings rather than focusing on being liked by the teacher, or beating our classmates, or planning ways to get into a group of friends to ‘fit in,’ or planning our greatest success where we disregard another’s life of lack of opportunities and suffering that is and has become our collateral damage in this zero sum reality.

It is thus in our greatest and most common interest that we could all walk this self-education process of self-honesty which is a process of self-creation according to living principles to get to develop ourselves to our fullest potential, and so make it part of our educational programs in whichever way they take shape in the (near) future once that we more and more realize how detrimental and even harmful our current standardized type of educational systems are which actually stems from the skewed and misconstrued value systems in our minds.  

So, the best way to deschool ourselves, which is the same as saying the best way to change ourselves is definitely walking the Desteni I Process. There’s no greater set of tools in this world, nor greater group of people that commit themselves to support one another throughout this Journey to Life, to live in dignity and equality. And I can only encourage everyone to try it out for yourself, because if I had aimed at simply wanting to ‘change’ but not really investigating my mind and living patterns to the utmost degree, to really learn how to sweep behind the rug of my memories, my past, my experiences, to understand who am I within my mind and how to practically apply and establish solutions in my day to day living, I would have been equally lost in a constant yearning ‘for change’ but not really knowing how or where to start.

This isn’t an easy thing to do either, it’s probably the greatest commitment we’ll ever make in our lives, which is our commitment to actually learn how to live in the benefit of ourselves and all life considered. However, it will for sure be the most rewarding and long lasting for future generations as well.

293. Services in Equal Money Capitalism

 

Redefining Capitalism:

We’re going word by word in a very basic definition of Capitalism to redefine it, explore it and see what each word means and how we are able to re-direct every aspect of this collective agreement into a Best for All system.

Capitalism is an economic system that is based on private ownership of capital goods and the means of production, and the creation of goods and services for profit.[1][2] Elements central to capitalism include capital accumulation,competitive markets, and a price system.[3]

source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capitalism

Service

ORIGIN
    Old English, from Old French servise or Latin servitium ‘slavery’, from servus ‘slave’.

Continuing from:

For context on redefining capitalism, read: Day 180: The Word ‘Capitalism’ in ‘Equal Money Capitalism Redefined

 

Services

 

Problem:

  • Profit sets the trend: Services are only currently existent as a means to obtain  money/profit without considering their actual need and importance within an actual functionality of the system itself.  This implies that many or the jobs that currently exist satisfy a certain requirement for profit, but in no way consider an actual involvement of all parts within creating/producing something that is beneficial to all life, but rather represent the relationships of enslavement that we have allowed through the system of hierarchy where those with the most can pay other to do the job that no one else wants to do.

 

  • People are replaceable: this means the usual ‘you can always pay someone else to do it’ and in this, a being’s living condition is not considered, but replaced if not ‘fulfilling the profile’ which is how people are currently existing in constant anguish and fear of losing their jobs.

 

  • Not all services are paid equally: a gardener, a janitor does not earn the same that a doctor or a ditch digger – this creates inequality at all times which is what we have to focus on realizing all services are equally important and valuable within the consideration that a doctor would not be able to perform his surgeries in an unclean area, nor would he be able to get to work if there were no people building cars, paving the roads, maintaining the gas stations and the list goes on, we tend to lose perspective of how interdependent we are  to function properly

 

  • Shitty jobs/services are given and taken by people that we have deliberately ostracized to not have opportunities to get a better education and achieve an actual equal-opportunity as anyone else to have a decently paid job. This perpetuates the various stratus in society that maintain our critical status quo of inequality.

 

  • Taking any job  to pay debt –  this is another outflow of our current system wherein we’ve forced each other to do jobs that are in no way fulfilling or an opportunity for further development but only to earn sufficient money to pay for basic services and goods to live, or any other form of debt.

 

  • Mechanical jobs for endless hours – this is what we currently know as slave labor which is a direct outflow from wanting to get the most profit with the least inversion on raw materials and work force, and in this nor resources or human work/social capital is taken into consideration as living beings, but only used as a means to get the profit.

 

  • Slave Labor– this is within the consideration of the amount of industries and corporations that handle products that are certainly not of prime necessity, this leads to more garbage, more greedy pointless consumption and more enslaving jobs that are not remunerated in a fair manner, this often implies child labor and menial conditions to live in, like all the people that currently manufacture our gadgets and clothes, among the rest of our foods and ‘goods.’

 

  • Competition at work between individuals/ companies leads to an aggressive constant bombardment of advertisements to be the ‘favorite service provider,’ which transforms the human being’s every day living environment into a constant advertisement campaign wherein life is reduced to buying/consuming and paying for someone to do  a certain job without any form of reflection/ introspection on what it is that we are In fact paying another to do for which could be done by ourselves or paid in an equally-acceptable way as those that we currently consider earn ‘good money.’

 

Solutions: From Slavery to Equality

  • By supporting everyone with equal education and equal support to develop our skills within an optimum direction to support activities and creation of products that better our living condition, we empower each individual on an equal manner, wherein each one will decide what do they want to contribute to work with in the community/society. This removes the constant ‘low-paid-jobs’ that are considered profitable but in no way do they represent an actual human expression that supports the real development of ourselves as humans and along the rest of the environment that equally forms part of our resources used to live/ at the service of life.

 

  • People won’t be ‘replaceable’ but rather value themselves according to the equal right and opportunity to direct themselves and work in the activity that is most beneficial for themselves within the understanding of the sustainability that must exist within the system.

 

  • Equal profit*, Equal Share will enable people to value the activity that they do as the actual physical support and assistance that they provide at the service of each other as equals. This is the only way in which our services will be there to serve a common well being interest wherein money won’t be the goal, but a mere receiving reward for the service given that enables the system to function properly

 

  • We have the technology for ‘shitty’ jobs so that people’s lives are not wasted away by doing ‘menial jobs’ that we can all take care of individually as part of our inherent responsibility, as well as distributing these jobs within all of the people, so that some hours a week working on collecting garbage and/or managing public services does not become a dragging experience.

 

  • A lot of useless products and enslaving jobs will be transformed onto activities and professions linked to, for example restoring the environment.

 

  • By everyone contributing with doing the currently called ‘shitty jobs,’ we can all stop enslaving one or few people to do the whole work for ourselves, these jobs will eventually disappear as people understand how another’s freedom represents us standing up to take part of such delegated – or better said- abdicated responsibility.

 

The Solution

Each one who contributes to the provision of a particular good or a particular service in a company should receive an equal wage – because each one is a necessary participant within the process. It’s not because one is doing physical labor while another is handling management that the one should earn more or less than the other. If you don’t have people doing the physical labor, you can’t provide the good/service – and, in the same way, if you don’t have people managing all the operations, the provision of goods and services will be impossible, or at least highly inefficient.
When each one receives an equal income – prices can be calculated in such a way that each participant/each worker in the company receives an equal share of the profit and that, with this income, each one is able to live a successful and fulfilling life.

Day 182: Will we be Feeding the Fat Cats in Equal Money Capitalism?

 

Goods and Services that are a Basic Human Right cannot be put up for auction where only the highest bidders can access them. Within EMC – basic human rights will be provided to each one and will be provided by government, funded by taxes. The inefficiency of public companies is firstly often orchestrated to get the public to demand privatization, having the population play right into the hands of the elite – and, secondly, corruption plays a major role. Within EMC – privatization of basic human rights will not be permissible by law as it violates the Constitutional Principle of Equality. In terms of corruption, politics within EMC will be far more transparent than what it is now and politicians will have a much smaller role to play. You can read up on these points at www.equalmoney.org/wiki/Politics.

Day 176: Will the Elite Manipulate the Public to Push for Privatization in EMC?

 

 

EQUALIZING WAGES – COOPERATION AMONG CORPORATIONS
If a company at any time makes more money than they need to provide each one with their equal share of the profit as well as covering their costs – those monies will go into a fund that is responsible for assisting companies that are not making sufficient to cover their costs and provide each one with their fair share. That way a balancing effect takes place so that all companies are not only cooperatives in how they cooperate internally – but all cooperate with each other as well.

Day 175: The Economic Problem and Equal Money Capitalism

What about those who provide services instead of goods?
Q: How do people earn an income from jobs that don’t produce a product that is purchased, or will everyone need to do a job that produces something to be bought? Or does compensation also happen as paid from the government not just consumers purchasing products?
A: Any value that is added, whether through providing goods or services, will be compensated. So – the same principle applies to employees in companies that produce goods and employees of companies that provide services – the price of the good or the service is determined in such a way that all participants receive a fair share of the profit so that all end up with an equal income. In terms of those working for the government or providing government services – they will also receive an equal income – this is the purpose of taxation.

 

Q: How do we make sure everyone is employed; will we have to create meaningless jobs like in the army – dig a hole, cover a hole?
A: There are many jobs that require to be done that aren’t being done at the moment – the Earth is barely taken care of. Remember that a company’s responsibility will extent further than merely the production of goods and services. Each company will have a Compassion and an Environmental Department.

Day 168: The Future of Integrity with Equal Money Capitalism

 

Payments for Non-Products?
Q: How do people earn an income from jobs that don’t produce a product that is purchased, or will everyone need to do a job that produces something to be bought? or does compensation also happen as paid from the government not just consumers purchasing products?
A: Yes – any value that is added – whether to a product or not – will be compensated. So – for government services – you simply do your hours and receive an equal income like everyone else. Whenever you purchase a product or a service – you are always paying for the labour involved, as such there is no difference when paying for a product versus paying for a service.

Day 169: Equal Living within Equal Money Capitalism

 

Rewards:

  • If everyone benefits from people doing what they like to do, what they are good at and where they can develop their skills further, we will certainly all benefit from a best for all quality living standard because people will be self-motivated to contribute to a standard living that is no longer based on survival and competition to get ‘the most profit’ but instead, a communal agreement to give to each other what we would want for ourselves, which is what Best for All means.

 

  • No more child labor, no more prison-factories, no more misery payments, no more coercible jobs

 

  • Our integrity as humans and equals will be slowly but surely restored once that money cannot make us ‘more’ than other or having the power to pay others to do what should be each individual’s responsibility within the community/ society.

 

  • Elevating our living standard depends on everyone’s natural enjoyment and further development within any activity or skill they actually want to do/ perform and support with, which is within the understanding that what’s best for all is best for you and me.

 

  • Having the tranquility of a steady job will reduce stress from being able to be fired, no more non-contracts that jeopardizes our financial stability since everyone will be able to always have an available activity to earn money from with equal-profit benefit, which means: everyone wins.

 

  • No more slave labor, more useless products means no more tedious mechanical jobs and instead, using our means to implement innovative ways to fulfill our living necessities with alternative means/ products and activities, since money won’t be a ruling factor to decide what gets to the selves in our supermarkets.

 

  • Being able to contribute to basic activities that make our lives sustainable is a grounding and honorable job, it is what we all currently require to do: working on the fields producing food for a season or two and become aware of what making our lives sustainable is really about – this will bring the real and practical understanding of our interdependence with the ecosystem and each other as equal participants within this social organism.

 

  • Mutual appreciation for what we do for one another in a way wherein we all become aware of how much everyone’s contribution enables our lives to be functional –this will no longer be something taken for granted as we do now because of money, but because we will be equally participating, getting involved and re-establishing a sense of community that we have only sought through religion, political affiliations or sports – instead, we’ll learn how to enjoy each other once that money is not something we compete against each other for.

 

  • This all means a real value of who we are as the real capital as life will be lived and understood and this will se the foundation to never again seek to abuse one another for the sake of ‘having more,’ because the collective well being will override any sense of self-interest act of selfishness and sectarian benefit.

 

  • We will enjoy sharing our skills because sharing and working together won’t mean working with the enemy/competition but rather working together to elevate everyone’s living condition.

Continuing from:

 

In economics, a good is something that is intended to satisfy some wants or needs of a consumer and thus has economic utility. It is normally used in the plural form—goods—to denote tangible commodities such as products and materials.

– source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Good_(economics)

For context on redefining capitalism, read: Day 180: The Word ‘Capitalism’ in ‘Equal Money Capitalism Redefined

 

“We have NO consideration/care/regard for ANY living beings, the physical body, nature, the earth, the environment and also least for Human Beings’ actual physical experiences to/as All Degrees – especially those suffering in poverty, starvation/famine. We’re only interested in ourselves/those generating/producing Mind-Physical ENERGY such as particularly ‘Positive Energy Experiences’ as such Energies/experiences ‘make us FEEL better’, and so ensure ONLY OUR continued Survival in this World/Reality with only tending to our own relationship to Energy within and Money without in our OWN personal worlds – completely Separate from/of the equality and oneness that is Here, in/as our Physical Existence and the fact that we exist HERE in this Physical Existence with everything/everyone within and as it.” – Sunette Spies

 

Upon this premise we have built our entire economic system. Money is the symbol of that separation wherein we constantly sacrifice life to give ‘life’ to money, a paper/ metal coin/bits on a screen/numbers on paper that have no value in itself other than the piece/part of nature as what’s here in an equal manner.

 

It is mind-blowing realizing the role that Imagination has within us sustaining/ maintaining our economic system: it is just a belief, and it’s no different to believing in god, aliens, love, the holy spirit or santa clause, it is all just a representation of our inability to come to common-sensical agreements to support each other as equals. I’ve written posts about Money before which I suggest reading to read through the Self Forgiveness on having accepted and allowed Money as this psychological symbol of separation from ourselves as equals, as Life.

 

 

Therefore when looking at Goods and the Experience we get out of it to obtain or have access to what we require to live, we create a Positive experience out of it, Money has this quality of making us happy or at least relieved because we know that holding such numbers in our account, holding such ‘Power’, empowers us to buy what we need or what we want/desire to fulfill for our every day living.

 

I will write out the points of separation from ‘Goods’ in order to establish a point of equality and oneness with the word, to remove the experience of good linked with money and at the same time linked with an ability of be ‘above’ others that have No-Goods to consume, because of Lacking Money

 

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to get a positive experience when having money as the symbol of empowerment that gives me the ability to buy goods and pay for services that I require to live, never having questioned why have I separated myself from the ability to give and receive in equality, wherein it should be a matter of principle, of living rights to have access to and obtain what we require to live and coexist in a sustainable manner, wherein the word ‘Sustainability’ implies us as receivers also supporting to work/produce/extract/manufacture and direct activities that are related to making this system functional and supportive for all – therefore

 

I forgive myself that I haven’t accepted and allowed myself to realize how I have separated myself from my responsibility and my right to life through the money-construct that exists a our economy, wherein we are only able to get access to the ‘goods’ to live If having money and If having a job to get such money –therefore, I realize that the moment that a vast amount of human beings have No access to having a job or having money, I am participating in an elitist system that doesn’t consider all beings equally requiring the same Good and services to live in dignity, and as such, by me accepting money as is, I am deliberately neglecting the lives of everyone that have no money and only focus on My Money and My Survival, because that’s what I was taught to focus on and never question Why it is that Money and Goods are not available for all as a living right.

 

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to instead of pondering why not everyone has equal access to the money that I receive in order to live, I go into a positive experience every time that I see I have money and I can buy what I need to live, which is how we are then ‘carried away’ by the positive experience that having Money to Buy Good and the satisfaction/ fulfillment/ enjoyment that this brings, and as such, making of what’s here of this Earth that should be equally given to all, a single symbol of superiority, power, satisfaction that Is not readily available for every single being as a living right.

 

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to be so ‘sure’ of my money and my secured survival that this blinds me from considering what is of the life of those that have no job/ no source of income, and Really put myself in the shoes of another opening an empty wallet and experiencing an empty stomach, or not having wallet, shelter, food at all – within this

 

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to only seek to ‘empower’ myself with buying goods, property, relationships that sustain such status in this world as my job, my family, my piece of reality wherein ‘everything is fine’ because I have access to goods and services, without taking a moment to reflect why I can only have access to such goods if having money and how come some people are deliberately ‘left out’ from this giving and receiving process of working and getting money to live.

 

I forgive myself that I haven’t accepted and allowed myself to realize how within me being happy for having money to live, I indulge into this positive experience that exists as a negative experience for everyone that has no such money to buy goods and services to live. And I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to think about excuses and justifications of ‘how the world works’ as a way to hide the fact that I indeed am a privileged one that has the tools a money to have a good life while plenty don’t, and how we have separated ourselves from physical reality to such an extent that we require money to give to ourselves the recognition of requiring the same ‘goods and services’ to live and have a dignified living condition.

 

I realize that we have allowed ourselves to perpetuate social contract and agreements that were never meant to be supportive for all beings, wherein we have transformed this entire physical reality into products for buying and selling with Money that is not available for all equally.

 

I realize that my happiness for having enough money to live exists as a disparity and specialness point when realizing that not every single being on this world is having such same access to live in dignity. Therefore, I realize that my positive experience is created out of having access to that which should be a living right, a part of giving and receiving in equality and within that, there would be no need to ‘feel happy’ and empowered as an energetic experience in the mind seeking to then spend it on this energetic experiences of consumption, wherein consuming has become yet another ‘way of living’ instead of considering consuming as the taking of our giving a the job/ activity that we can all contribute to generate a sustainable system and as such, be gifted/ rewarded/ remunerated with money as the Equal Access to have a Dignified Living Condition for All

 

Goods as the meaning of what is here of this world that we have turned into a product, can only exist as such in the absolute meaning of ‘good’ if we learn how to Give to each other in Equality such goods in the name of our recognition as equal parts/particles/participants of this same ecosystem as Earth.

 

The real benevolence of humanity has to be created, it is not yet our nature and this must be understood in order to realize that ‘doing good’ is not only giving charity or your leftovers or stuff that is ‘extra’ around your house to others, but to establish an economic system that is founded upon the recognition of each other as equals within our rights to have the benefit of Life and that such Life must be distributed/ made available and worked for and by All equally, that is our real benevolence and goodness of man: not leaving anyone behind any more. That’s the real unification of one and other as equals, to no more create disparity and polarity between one another through and because of Money. 

The worth of Life is Life and what is of the Earth should be equally valued as Life and given to all in equality as real goods that everyone require to live and truly Enjoy getting paid, because there will be no one left out of the Equation.
