Problem                                                                 

 

The alienation of the spectator to the profit of the contemplated object (which is the result of his own unconscious activity) is expressed in the following way: the more he contemplates the less he lives; the more he accepts recognizing himself in the dominant images of need, the less he understands his own existence and his own desires. The externality of the spectacle in relation to the active man appears in the fact that his own gestures are no longer his but those of another who represents them to him. This is why the spectator feels at home nowhere, because the spectacle is everywhere.  – Guy Debord, The Society of the Spectacle [1]

 

Soft Imperialism by Culture and MediaContinuation

  • Creating needs in people, tell them consuming is  ‘what life is all about’ and you get a certain market that will live a devoted life to praise consumption and reduce life to a series of experiences that end the moment a new trend comes out, a new experience to buy, a new gadget to wear and upgrade one’s image of  success worn as clothes, accessories, shoes, cars, pictures of being having the ‘great life’ – but, deep inside there is a strong sense of alienation that is  difficult to look from ‘outside’ because it is virtually everywhere as part of ‘who we are’ and the identities we become, which are the byproduct of the same profitable society that breeds consumers, not living beings.

 

  • Trading our goods and services has nothing o do with the cult of the image that we have built around consumerism, it is necessary to realize that our lives cannot be determined by the amount of experiences we have, how many ‘valuable objects’ we own, because these are all the values that keep the same system running, wherein our needs and desires are shaped in the image and likeness of celebrities that we seek to mimic and adopt as our own identity. That’s the configuration of our society and that’s why Debord emphasizes that we feel ‘at home’ nowhere, because the spectacle is everywhere, and everyone buys into it.

 

The spectacle within society corresponds to a concrete manufacture of alienation. Economic expansion is mainly the expansion of this specific industrial production. What grows with the economy in motion for itself can only be the very alienation which was at its origin. (Debord, 1967)

 

  • What we grow every time we buy is our self-image built around the cult of what we own, how we look, what we choose as our ‘lifestyle.’ This alienation is not only existent toward that which we buy, having no idea how it is produced and where it will end once we’re ‘done’ with it – we get alienated from the very physical reality that we are as our physical body. We’ve made of our flesh and bones an Image that we seek to Adapt according to the images on billboards, creating eating disorders and self image obsessions that occupy a being’s entire life where even if food is not consumed, the image seeking pretty much consumes the being alive, making of an internal conflict a time-consuming entity that leads us to be absolutely unaware of reality, but only exist in the glorious self interest of me-my-image-and-myself.

 

  • The consumer culture is the greatest form of degradation that we have faced as  humanity, because it stopped being a momentary form of distraction a few hours a day or a momentary treat after a hard day of work, it’s become who we are and how we behave and  have shaped our values, beliefs, morals, relationships according to these  Images that are upgraded every season. This means that: you have to buy NEW things every time to be ‘up-to-date’ in a society that believes it is important to  have a fresh look and  identity according to mass-media trends and ensure you are ‘upgraded’ and follow what your social tribe of preference dictates to buy every other season – this has become ‘mandatory’ if you don’t want to face marginalization for not being ‘cool enough’ to have enough money to Buy new things on a constant basis. 

 

  • Children are taught to seek love, money and superhero traits – teenagers learn to be disillusioned about  a world that has nothing to do with the fantasy presented in movies and videogames, new heroes representing the ideal lifestyles of perfectly tailored models that become ‘the voice of a generation’ emerge as depressive-and-on-meds type of figures that values more spending time feeling a constant need for ‘something’ and seeking it surfing in the net, consuming drugs, buying, drinking, gossiping, playing with gadgets rather than enjoying physical interaction with each other to learn how to live in the first place.
  • What’s the common denominator here? People seek experiences generated in the idleness of our sedentary lives that require constant updates of personal computers, phones, more and bigger flat screen TVS that constantly imprint the images we want to become. But, who has decided to present this to us? It is only in the benefit of those that sell the products that we get to ‘choose’ what we desire. Entertainment would not be an industry if the prefab images shown on TV weren’t available for sale.

 

  • We can see the pattern already: the main problem is our constant desire to Experience –  the world revolves around this. There would be no point to buy, consume, visit places and eat up stories to make us feel good.  We have diminished ourselves to a collection of experiences, memories, people that we believe are important to us for what they make us feel. Who benefits from this? Everyone that is able to create the perfect setting, the perfect stage for such ‘insta-moments,’ the perfect drug-drink to consume, the greatest clothes to wear, the greatest cars to show off, the most benefits that only a few can afford – which makes it even More special and exclusive.
  • We live to praise our self-images that determine how valuable we are at the eyes of everyone else – is it? Or have we just become an illusion to such an extent that we cannot even get to question how we got ourselves into this insatiable state of consumption, leading us to a life of constant energy fixed desires, becoming drug addicts, sex  addicts, TV junkies, celebrity gossipers, government bashers, economy illiterates, freedoms seekers and god seekers, getting high and jumping off balconies to challenge ‘the system’ and make a general anthem of ‘Ignorance is Bliss’ as the road to walk for the next generations to come. 

    How long can we keep this show running?  We have reached the bottom of our downward spiral – how much more repetition can we take?

 

  • Let’s look at our thoughts, see how many of them relate to an experience about who we are, how others see us, what we want to buy next, where we want to be? Were we the creators of these seemingly unstoppable desires? are we the result of the perfect feel good enslavement that is sold to us every time we want to Feel something new? Yes, it is – and we have all fell for it –doesn’t matter ‘who’ you are,  individualization has been made the most important thing that we hold, beyond any common sense of being breathing physical beings.

 

  • The truth is we have never really been ‘ourselves’ because we have only existed as mind systems seeking for energetic experiences that are bottled up, tagged and sold because we desire, hope and need it. We have sold our physical body to the devil, which is the system that we all feed with our desires, the greatest treats that justify a life of slavery, poverty and abuse for a majority,  because we all work to get these bits of heaven in order to numb ourselves from our reality that we ended up victimizing ourselves from, believing that the corporate monster is to blame, instead of looking at the very thinking processes that fuel this entire machinery that is seemingly as unstoppable as our own mind – here I state: it is Only a Belief that it can’t be stopped – We  have to take ourselves to the origin of our thoughts to prove such belief is simply an expensive  delusion.

 

Solution                                                                

The Spectacle Meets Rehab

 

  • Considering practicality/money and necessity over experience, looking if what we want to buy in fact only feeds our ‘self image,’ pursuing the experience of owning something, or who one will be when compared to others that don’t have what we do, and instead look at the facts if one in fact Need what we are about to buy, or if I one is subconsciously buying an character-accessory to store within this personal vault of memories and experiences that we define as ‘who I am.’

    This is a key experiment that I dare everyone reading this to do, and if you are Self Honest which means you don’t ‘fall’ for your desires, you should see a considerable amount of money remaining in your bank account/pocket/ under your mattress, because you will be able to stop yourself and realize that what you are buying is only an Illusion, that it will be a flickering moment just like a match that burns bright and consumes itself to ashes, requiring us to flick another to brighten the same darkness that we have avoided to become: physical stable living beings that do not require an Experience to be alive – think about this this, will generate a Great change in our consumer culture if we integrate this understanding in our day to day living behavior, which will include getting to know How our products are created, where they end up after they are no longer used and the consequential outflows of producing and distributing such products to satisfy our desires, then decide what we can keep and dispose all that only feeds greed.

  • Solutions for isolation with our current gadgetry lifestyles. There is nothing wrong with the techno-advances that we have, but a few considerations are shared here:  once that we realize that we are not images, we’ll spent less time cultivating our fascinations to further specialize the ‘who we are’ as this character/self image toward others, we’ll spend that time developing a relationship with ourselves, to get to know that Self that has only existed as the byproduct of our society, of our parents and the media that filled the ‘void’ in our lives.

    Here we can make it fun to – upon recognizing this prefab/ pre-packaged condition we all kept as ourselves– realize that we can in fact for the very first time in our human existence Decide who we want to be, integrate Values that consider our Equality as Life, living to become a contributor to a social transformation that will remove our spectacle attires, stripping ourselves  to see what remains once that we stop feeding our consumer driven and personality-cult obsessions. A group effort is required for this,each one of us will stand as an example of what it will take to stop being addicted to the mind and learn to appreciate the physical that is what has always been here, that we’ll  learn to trade as a living meaning of giving and receiving in Equality – no more greed for superiority and mind-driven personality fixes.

 

Rewards                                                   

  • Opening up our eyes from the illusion will mean a transformation in our entertainment and ‘variety production’ in this world. Imagine the amount of ‘special items’ dedicated to the cult of self that could be significantly reduced when people stop buying experiences and instead, learn how to invest on supportive items, genuinely enjoyable treats and re-learn how to communicate, share and essentially enjoy each other’s presence beyond the constant up keeping of a Character that we sold to others, in fear of being vulnerable about our real experiences, our questions, our thoughts and fears – we’ll be able to heal a drugged up, shopaholic and self abusive society with the ability to share our ‘Consumer Anonyms’ stories, as well as forgiving our constant competitions and fights over our pet peeves, that have also became necessary religions to idealize the perfect ‘originality’ that everyone sought to attain in our so-called lives.

 

  • We can make the crash and the fall of our mental high, the landing on Earth after the illusion of grandeur a humble experience to learn from each other, to forgive ourselves for having turned this Earth into a massive grave of products chocking animals on Earth an in the sea, bits of junk that once caused us a form of joy, never questioning if we actually needed that or not.

 

  • Consumerism as a disease will be treated at an individual level with the understanding that we have all complied to turn beings into slaves and nature, the animals, plants as assets that became accessories to our ideal prefab characters we sought to be and become. It is the least thing we can do after we have succumbed to a never quenching mind thirst for more, while forgetting that we are, beyond all, physical living beings that Live  and Breathe regardless of what we believe and experience at a mind level. Desire for more, Greed  is the real evil that we have to disintegrate from our core-programming, and we have the support here: Desteni  I Process.

116. Dreams of Perfect Lives as Mind Control

Self Forgiveness and further realization about how we have accepted the expression such as ‘Follow your dreams’ to define our current life as either successful/ not successful based on the imaginary future projection that we created at some point early on in our lives, wherein we complied to that single question of ‘What do you want to be and become when you grow up?’ wherein the question itself would already suggest that we could do whatever we wanted with ourselves and our future to satisfy our personal desires and preferences, never really taking into consideration that we are all here in this world, living the consequences of everyone seeking our own personal pleasures and ‘happiness’ without considering at all who and what we abuse and neglect while we are very busing building our own little castle of our ‘perfect future,’ which can only be manifested if we have enough money to do so.

Though, we’ve held these‘memories as pillars to create the characters  that we spend our entire lives trying to fulfill, which is once again, trying to match a dream/ imaginary future projection mind creation to a physical reality that is governed by an economic system that does not support all beings equally.  This can be read and understood in the blogs Heaven’s Journey to Life  and also Creation’s Journey to Life.

“The dreams will determine where you are within process – what’s still suppressed/hidden and require more focus and what you’re realising/transcending – so, basically all aspects of your process you’ll see in dreams or a specific point that require direction” – Sunette Spies

 

I have been having dreams and sometimes I have even desired to ‘keep dreaming’ just because of how entertaining it is, which indicates that I am still allowing the point of entertainment to be a driving force, which is obviously creating an illusion of me experiencing something ‘more’ than myself here, which is ludicrous when we consider how we are in fact only lying on a bed with our eyes closed and ‘having a ball’ in our minds. Well, that’s no different to how we go through our lives

“I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to not realize that Dreams Look so Real, as Dreams are Formed from the Same Substance that forms Characters, and the Dreams as Character as Memories are the Only Reality yet known to Man, and because of that, Man cannot Determine the Difference Between Actual Reality and the Dreamstate of illusion on which Consciousness is based.” – Bernard Poolman
http://creationsjourneytolife.blogspot.com/2012/08/day-115-dream-evolution-2012_7.html

 

There’s also times wherein the situations are quite ‘mundane’ and it’s as if I am still seeking to keep dreaming to see ‘where does it all lead to’ – and the most ‘extreme cases’ are when I have seen myself just wanting to keep dreaming because it is ‘more entertaining than real life’ which is is part of how we function as human beings, always seeking to be living within the ‘moreness’ that exists as an illusion in our minds, having nothing to do with the actual physical reality.

“The dream shows that your version of reality you so much dislike and how to sort it out is not clear. Do self forgiveness on judgments of how you see people and your perception that you are somehow more than those that seem blind. Also that you have no clear directive understanding on how to clear and direct reality in a way that is best for all –dissect the dream to remove all limited views”

“ALL DREAMS and everything/everyone in it – reflect SELF, it’s never about the person in the dream, that person will represent a part/aspect of you
Cause only you are in your MIND, there ain’t anyone else in there – so whatever goes on in there – is ALL YOU” – Anu

 

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to accept the common belief of me having to ‘follow my dreams’ when I was a child, wherein the moment I was asked ‘what do you want to be when you grow up?’ and later on ‘Where do you see yourself in 10 years time?’ I allowed myself to project myself with all my ‘dreams come true’ which were primarily based on being a writer, an artist someone that was ‘famous’ and would be able to make enough money to live with luxuries in the top of a building in some important city like New York City, which became me following the idea of what an ‘American Dream’ would be like, which is how I drove myself to spend my time working on what was necessary for me to become a music-review writer, as that was one of the ‘dreams’ I had – as well as being an artist or any other ‘important person’ that could step out of the ‘ordinary’ experiences in life, which is how I directed myself to build and sculpt my personality according to my ‘dreams’ and my desires, which is how the moment that we keep such dreams in place, everything else will seem quite ‘mundane,’ and if we don’t get to ‘fulfill our dreams,’ our life seems like a waste and a failure –

However, I didn’t realize how my dreams were only that: an imaginary process that I indulged myself in without taking into consideration the physical, practical reality and the actual current conditions in which our dreams are definitely not able to be ‘fulfilled’ as easy as we imagine them to be, without realizing how we see them as ‘possible’ simply by our cultural input of ‘follow your dreams’ and believing that this world is made for us to ‘conquer it,’ which is nothing else but absolute brainwash to keep each being bound to one-single-dream, and if this one-single-dream is not fulfilled, we go into the downward spiral believing that we are not ‘good enough’ to accomplish it, that we were not the ‘chosen ones’ that could be benefitted with having such a ‘good lifestyle’ the same as what we see on the media in relation to famous people.

 

When and as I see myself comparing my current life to that of my ‘dreams’ when I was a teenager and that 10 years later I was supposed to be ‘living out’ and going into an experience of me ‘missing out on life,’ I stop and I breathe – I realize that such dreams were never ever real and that I was just complying to what I was taught to ‘think about’ in school in order for us to always aspire to be and become ‘the next great successful person’ that could play out being just another example of what ‘making your dreams come true’ would mean, in order to instigate the same type of idealism within others. I see and realize that All dreams as positive life-style experiences are based upon abuse as there can exist no positive experience  at the moment in this world that is not leaving another behind, and this is clearly obvious within our current monetary system wherein we have defined ‘happiness’ and ‘dreams’ based on having money and being ‘more’ than others within a world system wherein wealth stems directly from the abuse of other beings’ lives.

 

Thus I see and realize that me thinking and believing that ‘My dreams didn’t come true’ is an actuality and a realization within the consideration that I had only allowed myself to create such imaginary scenarios as a ‘potential outcome’ within my life, just because of how ‘good’ it felt to do so – yet I never really considered or even walked the actual path to get there, which is how I mostly hoped that all of it could develop by some type of ‘fate’ that I was supposed to live, without realizing how this is precisely the trap that we have all indulged in at some point in our lives, leading us to actually always hold such dreams as the ‘aim’ and ‘goal’ for a lifetime without actually taking the practical steps to do so in physical reality.

 

I forgive myself that I accepted and allowed myself want to continue dreaming and therefore sleeping in order to continue experiencing that which I deem in one moment as ‘more entertaining than real life,’ wherein I then give into the mind’s experience of whatever it is that I am doing in order to satisfy a positive energy experience that I have defined as being ‘more’ than myself here, without realizing that it is such experiences that instigate a positive experience within me that which becomes the hooks to keep me bound to one single desire/ hope/ dream that I hold on to as a ‘potential outcome’ in my reality, without realizing how within keeping this point in the future as a potential successful achievement, I am in fact binding myself to only search and look for that one point that I have defined as the ‘moreness’ of myself, without considering how I have been in fact the creator of such separation the moment that I have accepted and allowed myself to believe that I can in fact experience any form of ‘moreness’ within and as myself.

 

When and as I see myself waking up and realizing that I am having a ‘cool dream’ wherein I want to ‘keep dreaming,’ I stop and I breathe – I realize that in this very moment I am giving into the ‘positive experience’ in my mind when and while dreaming wherein all that I am stating is: I decide to live a positive energy experience instead of myself being awake and self directive in the physical reality moment, which is unacceptable. Thus I direct myself to immediately take a deep breath and step out of the bed in order to instead write and walk through the dream point in order to establish what it is that I am still ‘falling for’ as a positive experience that me as my mind is showing/ revealing to me in order to see where it is that I am still allowing myself to ‘follow a dream’ instead of me being self-directive here as breath.

 

I realize that such positive experiences in dreams are based on the ‘adventures’ and ‘positive experiences’ that I had created according to the various characters that I vowed myself to be and become in this world, wherein the dream thus becomes an actual point of support for me to face that which I am not being able to face in real life at the moment – therefore I direct myself to be and become aware of my dreams in order to walk them as a point of self-support instead of actually giving into the experience and wanting to elongate the dream just to continue experiencing myself in such a ‘thrill’ in my mind when and as dreaming.

 

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to, in my dream, try to find the ‘gist’ of the dream wherein I am actually seeking to get to a climax experience within it, which often doesn’t manifest, revealing to me how there is still a pinch of hope and desire to have a positive experience in my life, which is what is still influencing myself in moments wherein I compare such positive experiences as my mind with the dreams that I have created and held within my mind in order to believe that ‘someday’ it will manifest or that ‘someday’ I will finally be and become such ‘moreness’ experience, which is not real in any way way whatsoever, and is instead one of the primary points wherein we give into the mind in order to maintain this one single point in separation of ourselves.

 

When and as I see myself trying to find and attain that ‘positive experience’ within my dreams, I stop and I breathe – I realize that me still being ‘looking for’ and ‘searching for’ that one positive experience in my dreams is still an indication of still holding dreams, secrets as positive experiences that I have bound myself to in order to have this ‘backdoor’ that creates this experience at times of my life not being ‘as thrilling’ as my dreams, which is why and how we go through our lives believing ourselves to be ‘less than’ and ‘unsuccessful,’ just because of how we were taught to always ‘follow our dreams’ and do everything we could to fulfill such positive experience in our lives, which is what we then use as a measuring point to see ‘where we’re at’ in relation to such high stakes, eventually always concluding that we are not in fact ‘good enough,’ thus considering ourselves a failure based on an imaginary outcome that was self created.

 

This is how I see and realize that we go comparing ourselves to such delusional ‘goals’ as ‘our dreams’ in life which were always only considering our own benefit, our own ‘feeling good’ experiences but never ever really taking into consideration how we could actually walk our lives in order to actually make such dreams come true Within the consideration of what is best for all life, which would imply that all our hopes, all our dreams, all our desires that kept self interest in place would have to be re-aligned to an outcome and direction that can benefit all beings in this reality within and as the principle of Equality as Life, as I see, realize and understand that the world is a consequential outflow of everyone following their ‘dreams’ and wanting ‘OUR dream to come true,’ wherein we are willing to compete, fight and deceive others in order to get to our desired outcome.

 

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to foolishly compare my current life to that of my ‘dreamed life’ which was always only this literal imaginary projection of myself doing what I made myself believe I was ‘good at’ and what I really ‘wanted to be’ when I grow up, without realizing that our dreams would always look much better and ‘brighter’ in our imagination than the actual reality of it, which is how and why we then create a negative or a ‘lesser experience’ within ourselves because we compare such positive-fulfilling-bright imaginary future projection toward our own living-reality that we then judge as dull, unfulfilling, sad, boring and unexciting, which is the perfect trap for us to then always seek ways and means to achieve such apparent plausible positive experience which translates to living a life of consumerism, of doing all we can to have more money, to get the ultimate relationship, to ‘get the most of the cake’ without stopping to look at how it is that such ability to ‘seek for more’ within an ambitious-surivalism type of experience can only exist within people that already have money and already know what ‘money can buy,’ whereas ¾ of humanity do not have such ability to even ‘dream’ of having a constant and stable living condition in their world, wherein their dream is to have a clean toilet and running water from a tap, which is how this places into context how deluded and actually abusive our dreams of ‘fame and fortune’ actually are, wherein we neglect the lives of the majority of beings that are Also ourselves and that we placidly ignore in order to just focus on ‘our dreams,’ and never even considering that such dreams should be Equally available and possible for all.

 

Thus I commit myself to stop following any form of positive experience in my dreams, as I see and realize that this is the perfect trap to keep me bound to one-single-point as a minute ‘positive experience’ that I am following in my dreams, such as the desire to be somewhere else, to be someone else, to have ‘more’ than what I have which is only reflecting how we have projected such dreams and desires into a media that we feed ourselves with, eventually weaving our own spider web trap of ‘unattainable desires,’ simply because we have dared to make money as that ability to abuse others in order to manifest/ materialize such ‘positive experience’ which in our current world and society translates to having all the money in the world to buy it.

 

Instead, I commit myself to establish a world system wherein Life is equally valued, where our only ‘dream’ stands as an actual ability to give to each other what we want for ourselves which is a practical way to manifest our dreams/ our heaven on Earth within a system that is actually able to be implemented in this world without having to even ‘dream’ about it, but simply through deciding that money can be valued as Life and as such giving Equal Money for all to live the best way that is possible for all beings on Earth, as I see and realize that we have only separated ourselves from our fullest potential as humanity because of binding ourselves to a system that was inherently designed to only benefit some while leaving a vast majority out of the ‘happiness loop’ that money creates for those in elitist positions.

I see and realize that we are here educating ourselves about how our dreams have become the greatest obstacle to actually implement, manifest and practically work to create a world that is best for all, because we accepted and allowed ourselves to believe that we could in fact ‘make our dreams come true,’ never realizing how this was the actual trap that we bind ourselves to without realizing that We are the ones that Decide if we actually create the world of our dreams or not where every single being can be Equally supported to live the life that we all want for ourselves/ each other in this world.

It is never too late as long as we are still breathing here – no more Waiting, we are Here and perfectly capable of walking the necessary steps to realize how life can only thrive in Equality.

Let’s Do it.

“I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to not realize that Dreams will be of Great Assistance from 2012 Onwards for those in the Journey to Life, to Realize where Illusion is still in Control of Determining the Future Self and thus the Future of Life on Earth, and that Each Dream must be TIMELINED and Dissected to find the Motivating Characterization and to Remove this, so that one Can Return to the Actual Reality of the Physical World and Leave Dreams to where they Belong, as Illusions.” – Bernard Poolman*

Hiding in my Sleep

 

Very supportive Life Reviews to realize and understand how ‘Following our dreams’ has not been aligned to an actual physical reality within our current context wherein the opportunities to achieve our ultimate ‘goals’ is not a certainty and most of the times, cannot even be fulfilled within a world wherein Inequality is all that has prevailed – we are the change that the world requires:

52: Capitalist Quick-Handy-Brainwash

We are all aware of poverty as one of the greatest problems we face on Earth as the direct consequence of having numbed and sedated ourselves quite nicely with knowledge and information that we accepted as ‘unchangeable,’ and that we have simply embedded as a veneer to protect us from facing the real screwed up facts that we have swallowed in the name of our personal “well being” wherein anthems like ‘I don’t care about anyone else but me’ become the voice of a generation that is doomed to remain secluded in a 4 x 4 cell – ehhm… room, proclaiming such perfect brainwashed hate-culture that promotes individualism through the appearance of proud and and bravery while neglecting an entire reality that is crumbling down to pieces.

Within this quick-answers to life, we find several quotes that reflect the collective-acceptance of knowledge as a way to give an explanation to – virtually – all, it doesn’t matter if what’s implied in such quotes is detrimental to life, nooo – what matter is the ability of pumping up an ego that is clearly submitted within a state of ‘powerlessness’ wherein the constant desire to ‘outdo’ others through knowledge and information becomes the equivalent of actual battles to conquer territories in the middle-ages.

Let’s begin with the Holybook that sounds more like Hollywood as its second remake to keep the masses ‘occupied’ while missing the very first acceptance here.

There will always be poor people in the land. Therefore I command you to be openhanded toward your brothers and toward the poor and needy in your land.” Deuteronomy 15:11

 

God/whoever said it: There will ALWAYS be poor people in the land – Massive crime against humanity in the holy-script-you-are yet, what people only look at and ‘Pay’ attention to is ‘oh so what do I have to do to be able to earn the kingdom of god in the heavens?’ which is perfect indoctrination really, be the effect that ‘solves the problem’ instead of ever looking at the cause, which is actually one of the greatest flaws within the ability to observe reality and ourselves as the cause and origin of the problem.

 

Another quick-drive-thru example: I had a discussion with someone defending the use of guns because ‘how else would they defend themselves if someone shoot first’? and in that, missing out the entire root and cause of the problem – how have we dared to build / produce an object as a means to “protect,” embedding in it the ability to be ‘god’ as in taking a being’s life in one split-second.

 

“Life is tons of discipline.” – Robert Frost

Live, work, work, work, have children, work, work, get old and die.

Do not deviate from that (production) line and you’ll be a happy-living fella. Well, we should be aware by now how ‘wisdom quotes’ are used to perpetuate the very system that will maintain everyone with a happy-coat of caramel melting all over you in order to not see the actual truth underneath it all. Discipline is regarded as a ‘positive aspect’ within society for the complacency it implies within the monetary realm: I do not see, I do not hear, I only work and what I earn is for me and my loved ones to live happily ever after – but is it when all that you discipline yourself to is being an obedient robot that doesn’t question why he has to spend 40 years of his life working non stop to be able to “live”? And people learn how to be proud of such achievements while in fact, it’s like an ode to a life-long decimation of any inkling of life in each one of us. And I’d get always this ‘feeling sorry’ for people when noticing this, this asphyxiating routine and how we can mock at each other’s day to day living yet: we are all trapped in the same boat just because of Money.

 

Within that equation Life = tons of discipline: heavy weight, a burden, life is a struggle, life must be fought for, life must be ‘earned’ and not unconditionally given – all of it is reflected in one single moment that you propose to someone the ability to live in Equality = giving and receiving what we want and require within a System that values Life and all you get is complains and even threats toward ‘making sure Equality never works for all’ – Jesus left great words but they have never been lived – whenever you propose Neighborism and living in Equality people go:

Whaaaat?

 

And then the fears come up because: who will I be without ‘this’ discipline? If I don’t require money to motivate me, then ‘what’ will motivate me? And this is not for the sake of judging, I mean It took me quite a long time of actual common sense development to understand the Equal Money System – however, I’m bringing into awareness how one single word can trigger out the most rabid fears toward communism, and abuse of ‘being able to have it all’ which implies one thing: we have never in fact lived, we have only lived to die and survive through.

We are discovering the power of the word, but we’ve certainly trapped ourselves even further whenever we take such words as the ‘law of god’ without actually pondering what is being defended and actually said there.

 

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to use knowledge and information in order to blind myself and only bling my eyes with that which sounds ‘right’ and ‘good’ and ‘productive’ within a world wherein ‘my happiness’ depends on ‘my effectiveness’ to be a complacent slave that does not question the most basic accepted and allowed forms of ‘living’ in this world, which are conditioned to money and money and money and my desire to fulfill the ultimate state of ‘superiority’ above others, because that’s what I apparently came here for.

 

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to accept poverty and starvation, abuse, violation of life in all ways because ‘the bible told me so’ and in that, buying the bill of ‘rights’ and ‘liberties’ that are focused on maintaining a ‘guaranteed individuality’ based on the satisfaction of one’s own ‘living rights’ which are bought and sold only, within a system wherein money is not given to all in Equality, but is instead given upon working as a slave within a system that will ensure that one is so embellished with entertainment, ‘goods to buy’ and the eternal seeking of perfect-picture lifestyles of a thousand smiles and ‘good times’ that I have neglected the very existence of fellow human beings that are most certainly starving and having No say in the system as to why they had to be born as a deliberate outflow of an elite that seeks positivity, power, ‘comfort’ through protectionism provided by money.

 

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself for having been a ‘disciplined being’ in society as that is considered a ‘reward’ within the system wherein: the better slave I am, the more money I get, the less questions I ask, the more I am liked by my boss – and in that, becoming the perfect eslabón (Spanish for link) slave in the chain of be born, consume, make money, love and die as a way to ensure that Life is always at the background, just ‘there’ as a taken-for-granted fact that we can simply ‘make money from’ and in that, believe that it is is ‘how the world works’ and ‘how God wanted it all to be’ – because otherwise, within the realization that it is in fact US that have created this system would create such great distress in people’s lives that all fairy tales would dissolve in a rather caustic manner, implying that they were never real in the first place, but only sustained through prolonged acceptance and allowance of abuse as ‘who we are’ in the system of ‘living, consuming, dying’ and repeating ad nauseam.

 

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to neglect the reality that is presented only through flashy pictures on the TV screen about poverty and viewing it in perfect HD while neglecting that the very ability for me to watch poverty through TV implies that I am in fact the elite that has created and manifested poverty as the waste produced every time that I sought my own comfort, happiness, bliss, joy and the ultimate state of satisfaction as the saturation of myself with ‘positivity’ that is translated in physical reality as wealth/ money and a never quenching desire for More.

 

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to use ‘wisdom quotes’ as a way to defend the apparent ‘human supremacy over matter/life/ Earth’ giving ourselves the ‘permission’ to intellectualize reality to suit our preferences, our knowledgeable ego that is willing to neglect the very basic aspects in which we are sustaining this self-fulfilling suckcessful bubble in the name of my own personal glory.

 

I commit myself to continue exposing the accepted and allowed abuse in this world through the use of knowledge and information as way to mask reality and its rawness with positive attitudes and ‘attributes’ that make the perfect consumer a ‘happy being’ because apparently, such actions provide a sense of ‘well being’ for ourselves, without realizing that it is in the very accepted and allowed words and implications within such words that we have created this reality as the perfect excuse and actual spitefulness toward life, only to suit our self-interest and personal self-enlightened behavior.

 

I commit myself to become the example of what it is to let go of knowledge and information as  way to suit my own ‘needs’ as my-needs is implying that I participate in a world-system of money that is only existent for a minority in this world as an actual means of satisfaction and completion through buying/ consuming to be ‘happy’ in this world, while the same monetary system means absolute disgrace, poverty, enslavement and a never ending rabbit hole wherein life doesn’t meet its needs and money is only seen as that god that has never shown its face to them.

 

I commit myself to stand for Life in Equality no matter what, no matter how many threats and words and spiteful vengeful discussions are walked in the name of defending the system with all claws and weapons of choice which have become words, as ‘wisdom quotes’ as ‘facts’ that people use in the name of guarding that which they love the most: money, power, specialness and their ability to abuse just for a temporary sense of satisfaction and fulfillment in a system where Energy is the real enslavement of humanity.

 

I commit myself to implement the Equal Money System as the one way to show and reveal to what extent we have doomed ourselves by our own negligence toward life itself, wherein I have become the very abuse that the system has been proclaiming as a way to ‘succeed’ which I have bought because there is apparently ‘no other way around in the system.’

 

I commit myself to life no matter how many rocks are thrown as words that intend to kill and perpetuate abuse, as I realize that ‘them’ are myself and all I can do is show the way to forgive ourselves for the delusion we have created, bought and sold in the name of personal interest – and within that, showing, revealing and sharing examples of how we stand for Life in Equality as an actual living-statement that Life must be valued in equality for and as All that is here in this same ecosystem as the Earth, and that there is an actual way to go forward which implies each one’s will to stand as an equal in this world, and be the actual change that is required to promote a new living-system that will never again have to use words/ knowledge and information in means of satisfying only mind-egos, but actually support practical living-life between all living beings on Earth.

2012 Instant Gratification

This is part of the stuff that we share and walk at the Desteni forum, which is how we support each other to open up points that we can cross-reference in relation to ‘how we function as individuals’ within this reality, within a system that we have created as a reward-system wherein we sometimes get to experience ourselves within a ‘game’ of sorts wherein you must struggle in order to merely survive and ‘thrive’ within it, which is the entire pursuit of happiness mechanism that we are induced to by our parents, teachers, school systems, media, friends, society in general as a reflection of how we have equated ‘living’ to ‘experiences’ – commonly associated with ‘buying an experience’ and being instantly satisfied with it, only to seek for more after a while. That’s feeding only the mind’s cravings there.

 

So the following belongs to Cam Mantia in his writings within the forum.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to desire a quick fix to bringing about a change in myself to stand as equality and oneness – I realize that the mind moves quickly and jumps from time to time and does not remain here; I have gotten so used to the immediate gratification of the mind that I had forgotten that this reality is currently time based and requires time to play and out and to be lived here in breath.

 

That point of Self Forgiveness opened up the ‘instant gratification points here’ where we have equated this process to something that will be giving us some ‘bliss’ or ‘glory’ as having and experiencing an instant change or have a drive-thru fulfilling experience of stopping a particular pattern or habit. Within this consumerist society, we have forgotten that doing things actually takes space, time and effort to get something done. We’ve become so used to only handing out money in order to get what’s available in the store – and in that, we definitely alienate ourselves from the production process that is behind that ‘finished product.’

 

 

So the mind moving quickly and wanting to get things done asap, is a definitive pattern I have walked and I am currently working with as well, though I had not linked it to a sense of gratification or ‘props’ for my ego until  I started writing about it within a mind construct wherein I have linked ‘effectiveness’ to rushing, wanting to get things done in an almost anxious manner wherein I have not allowed myself to step down a notch from my usual ‘drive’ – which is energetic in nature – instead of walking point by point in the physical, here, at the physical breath pace.

 

The interesting thing is that I tend to judge capitalism and its production mechanisms wherein the fastest something is produced = the better, the quicker, the more satisfying and ‘ultimately fulfilling’ something is, as that is translated to profit and ‘power’ for whoever holds it in such case. At a personal mind-level, I work the same way, wherein being and perceiving myself as ‘fast and accurate’ is translated to feeling instantly and ‘inadvertently’ gratified with having accomplished something.

I recognize that I have deliberately applied myself in stopping any feeling as a the fluffy ego-props this point of ‘efficiency’ can be equated to –  as it is within the application of humbleness wherein anything we do/ say/ accomplish is not taken as a trophy, but seen and realized for the practicality of it.  I had a history of reacting when getting public recognition as in getting embarrassed about it – later on realizing that I was playing in fact the opposite role as well within seeking recognition, which I have written about in the past and how it was the first aspect that Bernard pointed out to me the day I got to the farm, lol that was cool. Since then, I have realized that I can acknowledge these points that I have walked-through and applied, recognize them for what they are and stopping ‘adding on’ to the personal record. This is then living each moment with its realization and moving on – clear- no keeping track of the personal record.

 

How did I get to that realization? Well, we don’ require to keep a record of ourselves as that would be in essence having to ‘load’ an entire lifetime-achievement and keeping it as ‘who we are’ in every moment – which is how the ego is formed – instead of realizing that if there is an actual self-realization, we integrate it as ourselves in the moment, without having to boast about it or make ourselves feel ‘better’ or ‘bad’ for having done or realized something – thus we understand that through self-forgiveness we give ourselves back to ourselves wherein no ‘more or less than’ exist, wherein we equalize ourselves to the points that we walk as our very own living application, which is seeing and realizing that we cannot possibly get somewhere/ become more or ‘achieve’ something in separation of ourselves – there is nothing to ‘earn’ or ‘lose’ – only points to realize and align within the principle of what is best for all.

 

That’s how I realized I was ‘keeping a record/ score’ of lifetime achievements and ‘loading that up’ as the idea of myself – once we stop defining ourselves according to ‘what we have done/ who we were/ how we have lived’ as the past, we give ourselves a blank slate to remain with the basic and supportive points that we have integrated as part of us integrating self-direction as a living-decision.

I also  discovered this when writing out a mind construct – I share some self corrective statements that contain the exposed above:

 

When and as I see myself rushing within my world in an idea of rushing = ‘being efficient’ I stop, I breathe. I realize that this is a copied-pattern within the belief that through rushing I will feel ‘good’ about having done something in the fastest and most accurate way when in reality, I am only ‘playing a game’ against time, against others wherein I perceive ‘the rest’ as ‘slow’ and ‘inefficient.’ I stop following this self-belief of having to rush through everything I do as a point of self-definition that makes me feel ‘good’ about myself/ feel ‘more than’ which are experiences created as a positive thinking within my personal record of lifetime achievements. Lol

 

When and as I see myself doing things from the starting point of ‘rushing’ and ‘getting it done as fast as possible’ – I stop and I breathe. I realize that doing things the fastest way is not an actual way of living here as breath at the physical pace, but existing as a constant energetic rush at a mind level. Thus, I direct myself to do things at the pace that it is required wherein I am aware of my movements being self-directive and not out of ‘rushing’ – the same with my breathing-pace wherein there is nothing to ‘compete’ or ‘achieve’ within buying groceries, but simply getting what’s required and that’s it.


Just in case you were wondering about the ‘buying groceries’ point, that’s part of a mind construct on going to the supermarket experience and getting  ‘as fast as I can’ in and out of it in order to achieve the ultimate task of buying groceries in the most ‘fast and accurate way’ lol! There’s a LOT more than what meets the eye when walking a single event through writing in such specific ways as we do within doing mind constructs, it’s fascinating. And this point is definitely related to some of this instant gratification point which becomes our current ‘living in the fast lane’ type of lifestyles, wherein some people have dared to say ‘we barely have time to think’ – but I would say that it is the other way around, we think too much, we consume too much, we rush too much within the almost embedded idea that ‘time is money.’ And just to give another perspective on the self corrective statements, the ‘acquired pattern’ is in relation to taking my father as a reference from whom I have copied this pattern/ habit, which makes it fascinating to see how we acquire all our ‘personal quirks’ from seemingly mundane events like ‘going to the supermarket with my father’ – fascinating stuff that you get to walk through the Desteni I Process.

 

I’ll leave it up to here for now, there’s many cool points that open up when looking at ‘instant gratification’ as the mind’s tendency to seek for quick fixes to fulfill the very programming that we have created for ourselves, to keep ourselves busy ‘up there’ while perceiving that breathing and being here is ‘wasting time’ or that we should be ‘doing something’ – it’s time to walk a process of balancing our day wherein we give ourselves time for ourselves, to write, to reflect on who we are every day, what we participate in and also remaining effective and directive within any physical work/ task that we require to give direction to as part of our daily reality.

 

There’s an entire aspect of the instant gratification based on our consumerist society, wherein we have all become addicts seeking the next fix – and we have to be quite aware that within this process there is certainly nothing to ‘earn’ or ‘accomplish’ that can make us ‘more’ in any way whatsoever. It is essentially only adjusting ourselves to the reality and living-principle that we should have always existed as, and it is only now that we are able to walk ourselves through our writings and Self-Forgiveness in Self Honesty in order to demystify our eternal ego-competition toward ourselves and everyone else that has a mind in this world – within this, we hold the actual power to stop an entire system of profit that is based on satisfying these very ideas of getting experiences as props for our personal score/ ego, as a lifetime achievement of experiences that we can then hold on as ‘who we are.’ We are the creators = we are able to correct chasing after experiences and ‘points’ to add to our board, and within that, stopping the cog wheels that are keeping the current system alive.

This time I feature Jeanne’s creation because it suits our current ‘living mentality’– lol – and the instant gratification point as the fuel that keeps this current system of zombies that we have accepted and allowed ourselves to become. The quote says it all
