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.

If 'Survival of the Fittest' is true, is is the Marketer who is King - Selling the belief that the Freedom to pursue Self-Interest is not Enslavement to Consumerism

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

Laziness: a product of Capitalism?

Is capitalism a result of human laziness or did capitalism made the human lazy?

What is the experience when paying someone to do things for us?

These are aspects of the realizations through comments and feedback we constantly get wherein the single act of having to read/ investigate the material that we’ve been sharing seems like a huge task for someone that is recently getting to know of what Desteni and Equal Money System is. It’s understandable that the vast amount of material might be a bit overwhelming, though it is necessary to go through it and take it just as any other subject you would take ‘in school’ – this is the school of Life, a subject that’s never ever been considered in any school of this world.

 

On questions like ‘who’ll do the shitty jobs’ which are such a common point within the Equal Money System, we have a second ‘underlying’ factor – besides greed –  that is often not so obvious yet it is part of realizing the fact that there will be no slaves in the Equal Money System – therefore we’ll have to do things for ourselves.

If we don’t push through that initial resistance and/or laziness, we’ll in fact prove that this world is the way it is because we work by the law of the least effort. From this, we seek to have everything  in a ‘peeled and cut’ way wherein one only has to pick a fork and eat it, we don’t  ‘like’ or ‘want’ to have to do all the job that would entail eating a fruit for example: from planting a tree, taking care of the tree, waiting for it to bear fruit, then picking the fruit, cutting it / peeling it and eating it. See, the way that we see things now is I pay for it and it’s readily available. This is just an analogy as this doesn’t represent that we’ll all have to ‘grow our own apples’ because this is one of the aspects that could also lead to over-growing food as one tree bears a lot more than what one single family can handle.

The point is: we’ll have to learn how to do thing for ourselves, we’ll have to stop being lazy! The ability to pay someone to do everything for ourselves just because ‘we can’ will cease to exist. 

If I look at my experience I mean, what did I enjoy about eating at restaurants – besides the eating part – or staying in hotels or having a nanny as a child? The fact that everything was made for me, I didn’t have to do anything – from buying the food, cooking, eating and then washing all the cooking and serving dishes; from having my bed made, not having to clean around, having my bed made, my clothes washed – all of that is currently paid of with money wherein such price involves people behind that make sure everything is ready to eat/use and everything is done for you.

See this is the type of stuff I would be busy thinking of constantly in my reality, specifically on restaurants/ hotels or any other place where you get people providing you for a certain service. I’d pay attention to see how the interaction between coworkers and the dynamics of the work itself would be done to satisfy a costumer, that is the person that will pay for such job. Fascinating how there was even this experience of ‘superiority’ in that which is absolutely unacceptable yet this is the type of feelings that get up in the head of those with exorbitant amounts of money

 

I forgive myself that I ever accepted and allowed myself to create but a single feeling and experience of superiority whenever I have the money to pay someone to provide me for a service or do something for me wherein I am allowing myself to feel with such ‘power in hand’ as money to have this particular person ‘serving me’ in a particular way that I require, without realizing that within this single action I am in fact only taking the ‘power’ as an attitude which is conferred by money itself as a synonym of ‘domination’, of ‘power’.

I forgive myself that I accepted and allowed myself to create a certain attitude or experience of grandeur within me even if I denied it whenever I got to experience any point wherein I wouldn’t have to worry about money and having treats that one can only get in a lifetime of a regular mortal, within this allowing me to indulge in the superiority flair that tempts so many beings around the world as the embodiment of such ‘power’, such ‘grandeur’ and the ability of having others doing everything for you.

I forgive myself that I accepted and allowed myself to create a certain feeling of being ‘pampered’ and ‘spoiled’ whenever everything was done for me and equate this as ‘care’ and ‘protection’ while in fact it leads us to become irresponsible and inconsiderate with regards to doing our tasks ourselves and learning how to efficiently take care on our own.

I forgive myself that I accepted and allowed myself for having ‘felt bad’ about seeing other girls/boys my age working and ‘serving’ us without realizing that such judgments are only self judgments that cannot do anything else but create an experience – it is only now that we realize the reason why people have to give up their childhood or teenage years to work to make a living  – thus I support and endorse the Equal Money System because they too should’ve been able to enjoy what I was enjoying at the time.

I forgive myself that I accepted and allowed myself to ever react to someone’s arrogance when being too bossy at restaurants and demanding the crew for ‘better service’ because of projecting my own judgments upon her and upon the people that work as a complete fuck up that shouldn’t exist and that could only exist because Money was in place.

 

I forgive myself that I accepted and allowed myself to experience myself as ‘superior’ or ‘important’ the moment that people treat you like that out of having a certain position that apparently denotes you must be treated like that –  without realizing that it was all about hierarchy, positions and social conventions that had nothing to do with who I really am and what I was in that moment either. I forgive myself that I ever accepted and allowed myself to seek that same power through pursuing such success so that I could experience such ‘power’ and ‘grandeur’ through the money that would be earned in such career.

I direct myself as the realization in Equality that we can in fact create a best for all way of living through equalizing all values, through eradicating the ability to make money out of exploiting others and through understanding that the way things should’ve always been is based upon Self Responsibility wherein on one else will be subjugated in a way wherein they are forced to accept any kind of activity as a job to ‘make a living’.

This is cool, I got to remember I had my greedy-capitalist phase when I wanted to be a financial advisor 10 years ago – later on I let go of the idea as I realized money wasn’t ‘my thing’ apparently – I have to correct that to suit the current requirements to move effectively in this world.  Back to the main topic.

 

We’ve got to stop living in this drive-through accepted and allowed lifestyle wherein everything is readily made, it’s easy, it’s synthetized, it’s summed up to the most digestible bit so that I don’t even have to chew it. This is part of the realizations that we are seeing will be part of our daily considerations in terms of stopping being just a consumer that can afford to have everything done without even considering the amount of time, effort and dedication behind its creation/ production.

Consider everything that we pay others to do for us and see how those points will have to be re-evaluated in terms of how to divide the different tasks in society once there will be no one that will be able to be paid for doing such jobs out of ‘having the need to make a living’, because all will be having the equal dignified living conditions.

 

A point that I noticed at the farm is how when spending the days working and literally focusing on doing on that which was required to be done to sustain the place, my life was much more physical than what it is when I’m just stuck to a computer. Yet I understand the necessity for us to focus on communicating and sharing with others so that we can then get to that point of having the entire structure in place to have our lives working in such a self-sustainable way and literally living.  By self sustainable I mean us realizing the stuff that must be done and do it ourselves – it will be less sedentary in terms of doing all that which we would usually pay for. This is one of the aspects that we can begin taking as a point to walk start taking self responsibility for , realizing how the amount of money we have now ensures that we have someone else doing it for us – not only in terms of having ‘personal service’ but overall wherever we go and there’s someone having a certain job for the sake of making a living.

 

Stopping the laziness point may also become part of the first realizations within seeing: I actually have to read/study this and overcome my own laziness to do so, and within that already walking a point of our own accepted and allowed brainwashing and separation of wanting everything, fast, easy-opening, accurate,  all the fast food lifestyle of paying and getting the product with no regard toward all the jobs that are mostly considered a ‘nuisance’, the usual household chores or any other ‘maintenance’ and service work that is required to be able to sustain our current living conditions. 

This is how we start stopping the capitalist within us that believes that just because ‘I have money in my pocket, I can buy anyone to do things for me’. Those times are over, best to integrate yourself from now on to the new way of being wherein we will actually have to take care of ourselves, yet work as a team within the same principle of doing what’s best for all and optimizing everything to simplify such tasks for ourselves as well. Technology will at last serve as part of making this world an easier place and not just be developed as something that will only work for a while to be at a later stage – it will be all about supporting life on Earth and making our tasks easier as well.
