626. The Freedom of Shared Responsibility

 

Here I share an update to my previous blog which will be my personal reflection and reading of a situation like this in the current world we are living in where social media has become in the individual press or medium of communication that enables us to create awareness of basically anything in our world, and at the same time consider the ‘greater scheme’ of how things that will emerge and will be coming through as scandals or online viperous content are also part of a very bumpy – yet necessary – ride to create further awareness of the effect that our actions have upon others, while also learning to discern what is truth and what isn’t based on facts and within that, learning to essentially stand in truth because nothing can distort that, because it is self-evident, and that’s essentially our real freedom, to own and take responsibility of our participation in the co-creation of reality and know ‘who we are’ within it all, so that one can then decide to change the ‘problematic’ actions and attitudes within myself  – that’s self-honesty to me.  

So, without giving too many details for obvious reasons, I was part of the conciliation process that took place in order to create a form of ‘justice’ to the person that felt aggravated by the actions of other people that were professionally involved with my partner. My partner faced his own ‘charges’ directly with the person that felt aggravated by him. To me it was quite an example of how one can be the living expression of ‘your truth sets you free’ because there was nothing to fear when you know exactly what you did, how you did it and the starting point of it. It took an apology to realize that his actions and words simply had an effect he had not considered could cause a negative reaction in the other person, and that was essentially about it. The whole ‘exacerbation’ of the situation essentially deflated when he decided to talk to the person face to face and clarify the situation. This involved the acknowledgement of making mistakes and how we can learn from it, how to change from now on.

The ability to come to an agreement exists when people are placed face to face to talk things out without having the ‘he/she said this/that’ over social media gossip only. The whole thing changes when you are there talking to the person that created a certain image of you online and start laying out the facts, recognize the mistakes, ask for forgiveness and move forward to create a peace arrangement, recognizing the responsibility on the ‘aggravator’ side in this case.

I personally tried to share the concept of shared responsibility where it always takes ‘two to tango’ in any situation, and how the person remained in such work relationship by their own choice. I was vehemently ‘shut down’ with my remark, because the whole set up was of having a victimhood and aggressor type of polarity in the conversation. This is one of those moments where I realized there was no opening to this kind of concepts when you have emotionally ‘enraged’ people and certain laws being used to treat a point of awareness of responsibility as ‘adding fuel to the fire.’ I had to keep quiet after that realizing I could stir up more conflict in a situation where conciliation was aimed to be made.

Here I’ll be sharing my perspectives on what I’ve observed not only first hand from this situation, but also in the context of what’s going on in the world in the realm of ‘political correctness’ and all of these attempts to ‘make people pay’ for past situations where people that felt aggravated didn’t speak up – or where people are currently taking offense much easier than before, where even now trying to make a simple joke can give you labels of the worst kind, where even mentioning a word has led people to lose their jobs as CEO’s of big corporations, comics have been kicked out of colleges for ‘telling the wrong jokes,’ and world leaders are being a constant source of internet bullying because of not providing a ‘politically correct’ view of people… and the list goes infamously on. That simply shows ‘where we are’ as humanity, that’s our current mirror.

I’ve mostly been observing and seeing what the ‘climate’ of all of these accusations, ‘revelations’ and ‘me too’ movements have created and have become. Each person has the ability to use their words and the media of their choice to say what they feel they ‘have a right’ to say. The problem is we don’t consider our responsibility in it all and the way that we affect each other, and at the same time how to learn and realize that no one can make you feel bad, feel less, feel down, feel offended unless one allows it or unless one ‘identifies’ with certain ‘label’ or word that may trigger an emotional reaction in us. That is part of this process as well where I’ve learned to see where and how I used to identify with certain judgments – essentially standing as Self-Judgment – and from there realize that any reaction I get from anyone ‘calling me that’ is simply because I accept and allow such word and a reaction to it to exist within me. I know it sounds difficult to do, but it’s work that’s worth doing for the sake of personal growth and change.

Currently writing or saying something about ‘taking responsibility’ on the side of the ‘offended’ one becomes outrageous in a climate like the one we are living ‘out there’ where people are deciding it’s quite easy to accuse and become a victim – and in that blindly supporting the victims – which is why the world is becoming the kind of ‘you said he said’ circus of misinformation and gossip that are dividing people more and more.

It seems ‘easier’ for some to not create any form of awareness of responsibility or perhaps not even deciding to consider it because it basically would destroy every single accusation or offense claim done, because one would realize ‘whatever I feel or experience from these words, I create within me, no one else can get inside my head to cause me to feel bad about it.’ But these seem to be still ‘superhero’ concepts as in them being ‘out of reach’ of any regular human being, when they are not, we are doing it as well in this process at Desteni. This doesn’t mean that some people may in fact want to inflict abuse, harm or extortion on others, that definitely does exist as well, but then it takes us to another reading, to understand how a person came to be the kind that would want to deliberately harm, abuse or vex others. That is also something that can be understood to take responsibility  – as in assisting to change it within self – and forgive it, not taking it personally and creating more problems about it. Sometimes simply talking to the person to know ‘who they are’ leads us to understand why they do certain things, and this also assists in realizing one cannot take personally others’ wrongdoings either. But this is also part of this process where one willingly decides to live the word Understanding, rather than going through the seemingly ‘easy’ path of blame and victimhood.  

So unless the person is devoid of all of their mental and physical capacity to think for themselves, every single person that stands in any form of victimhood needs to assess this first point of responsibility: how did I come to create, accept and allow this in my life and reality? What kind of steps, decisions and choices did I make to get to where I am currently? This is one of the main things that have made me a ‘freer’ person. I’ve written in countless blogs how I used to stand in blame towards every single human – hypothetically speaking – for ‘how fucked up we are as humanity’ and how I saw no way out other than completely ignoring the world – well, trying to – but ending up with a very pessimistic and nihilistic view about life and of any future for ourselves.  This led me to feel anger, resentment and feel completely disempowered to change anything, because I kept blaming the world system, ‘those in power,’ those that apparently made all the ‘wrong choices’ that affected my life and those around me.

Deciding to step outside of victimhood and blame is genuinely empowering and this was only possible due to studying the Eqafe.com material where I truly got to understand the ‘greater’ picture, and I mean ‘greater’ as in existential-level greater, where I got to grasp that any form of abuse is always Self-Abuse, because we are all in fact one and equal, and this is not in the nice and fluffy sense that some aspects of spirituality or religion portray, but this is at a matter level, where we are truly one and the same, we have just separated ourselves into oblivion, not only as individuals, but even within ourselves where we have our mind, our being and our body separated ‘within ourselves’ which is why we don’t realize what we were – and have been – doing ‘it’ to ourselves all along, which is self-evident now that we witness the truth and reality we are in.

Even though a lot of ‘shit’ seems to be hitting the fan, and cans of worms seem to be opening up everywhere – which is something we also knew would Have to happen in order for the old to go and the new to emerge – there are also great things happening in the realm of ‘waking up’ and taking more responsibility and creating more awareness of who we really are, and that’s also why some events are causing the scandals we are now seeing in the media or on social media every single day, people coming up with past stuff to blame people and in a way believe that it is that way to create any form of solution to the problems, when it is genuinely not and it is causing much more harm, violence, defamation and unnecessary paranoia around it. However all in all, it does serve as a point of awareness to the kind of abuses, harm, violations to life that exist which are things that have been kept ‘inside’ each person throughout human history.

We just now happen to have things like Facebook, Twitter and other places where each one can share themselves to whichever intent. But in all of such expressions of accusations, I haven’t yet read or seen one single person admitting to have placed themselves in such positions to be on the ‘receiving’ end of any form of abuse. And it is rare at the same time to find people that assume full responsibility for their aggravations without fear, understanding the situation and committing to change themselves for the best. I personally am fond of my partner for being one of them and serves as a great example of how things can be sorted with self responsibility, and how there’s nothing to fear when you know exactly ‘what you did’ and why you did it.

As a side note, it was also interesting to see how a publication with ‘scandalous’ content got shared thousands of times and commented on endlessly, while another publication with a signed agreement of conciliation of peace between the involved parties got only ‘a few likes’ and a few comments of approval. It does reveal a lot ‘where we are’ as a society and this has saddened some of my friends, but, I stick to the point of seeing the greater picture of not taking it personally but move on with the solutions as planned, because I know that falling into despair is just another outflow of reaction that leads nowhere but personal disempowerment, thus, we need to acknowledge, understand and move on standing clear on it, even being willing to support others that may be affected by similar situations which is something that I am open to do as well.

I initially also felt limited or ‘violated’ in my right to speak about shared responsibility in such conciliation process, because I was essentially told to ‘shut up’ or I could aggravate the situation. That’s a moment where I had to see my reaction coming up and decide to slow down and take one step back, breathe and realize that there are and possibly will be situations where the actual truth of the facts cannot be fully embraced or even mentioned, because there are factions that are completely entrenched in a sense of entitlement  that prevents them from hearing any form of common sensical approach to a situation such as where the two parts are considered as co-creators of a situation. It was baffling to me, but in that moment I realized that I could indeed do more harm than ‘good’ by trying to ‘create awareness’ about something that could destroy a ‘conciliatory’ process in the making. What I did instead after the whole more ‘serious’ part of the conciliatory process was done is to extend a hand of support for the person that was aggravated, to share how I do this as part of my living and how I am interested in people’s wellbeing regardless of anything. So that’s where I decided to stand in relation to ‘the other side’ for the sake of giving a name here, it was my way of living forgiveness in that simple moment as well.

This I share as well as a cautionary tale, where one needs to learn how to read the matrix so to speak, the context of the situation, the political and social ideas behind these kind of accusations, the laws and how the people on the victim-stance are expressing – such as if they are enraged, angry, nervous, etc. Because then it is my responsibility to know that saying something can ‘detonate’ them further on, so that’s where I have to take that step further and not step on my ‘high horse’ so to speak, which could have caused more conflict.  It is also well known that our current legal frameworks do not cater common sense or the consideration of shared responsibility. It is a polarized system where the only sense of ‘justice’ that exists is placing someone in jail or sending them to death penalty or asking them for money as a form of conciliation. That is of course only handling consequences….

But how about creating spaces to genuinely converse and admit the simple fact of ‘it takes two to tango’ and assist both or more parties to step outside of the disempowerment of victimhood and offender – that in fact attracts more dissent, polarization, violence and rage – and in doing so, assume a more responsible and wholesome stance where each person involved is assisted to recognize their participation in the co-creation of the situation, to understand the mental processes that led to the creation of ‘the problem’ and from there create a conciliatory process where one can understand the other and commit to a process of learning from the mistakes to change such habits, attitudes, actions or ways of being in order to prevent further mistakes and so further problems or accusations. That’s living forgiveness and that is not currently in any legal framework to my awareness.

In a way it is sad that one cannot say such things in the moment, because based on the situation where there’s almost like a victimhood standoff, it is almost impossible to hear any form of shared-responsibility concept. But there I said it, perhaps I planted a seed of awareness, perhaps not. But at least I didn’t keep quiet about it, couldn’t say all of what I’m writing here today and that’s also how I see the importance of using the tools we have of sharing ourselves, of creating blogs, sharing our perspectives within self-responsibility. Here I am making the best that I can to ensure that my words stand as a perspective that is geared to support ourselves as human beings – not taking any sides here – to face conflict, to prevent conflict, to handle conflictive situations in a way that can honor each other and ultimately life itself.

This is how I see we need tools of support at a legal level so that the labels of ‘the victim’ and the ‘perpetrator’ are removed for a moment to look at where each one stands and how the situation came to be, so that there is an awareness creation of each other’s participation in the event, and so create a mutual process of real reformation if you will, which doesn’t come with a sense of vengeance or punishment or ‘compensation for the damage done’, but in the intent of actual change and restoration of the individual, for any ‘other’ is also ‘us’ that have gone astray in one way or another, they are also the product and result of the whole society/world we have co-created.

And this is why blame is lame as they say, it prevents us from acknowledging that we have all created the world as is, we have all been co-creators all the way, we have just blindly and comfortably forgotten, and that is what’s currently being used with greater force in certain factions or groups that create an identity point based sexual preferences, gender, race, nationality, ideology, political inclinations, religions, all kinds of paraphilias and the list goes unfortunately on, missing out the fact of how any form of label/tag divides and conquers us further. It truly saddens me to see how we have separated ourselves from the basic humanity that we all are, devoid of creeds, beliefs, postures, colors, dogmas. It is indeed sad undoubtedly how much ‘shit’ we can talk about one another, how easily we can attack and blame and not even care to investigate the facts. I’ve been there myself as well and can’t claim innocence at all in the past, but I’ve been committing myself to change that within this process for the past 11 years. Sometimes learning the tough way is what we need, a huge ‘wake up call’ to see how we are participating with each other person in this world.

At the time, it seems things are ‘getting out of hand’ in the world where virtually any wrong word may get you on the spotlight and be labeled as the worst of the worst…. We are on a learning curve as well on how to best make use of this current notion of ‘free speech’ and the ability we have to publish whatever we want. I believe it is only our truth that can set us free, and that truth doesn’t mean always doing things ‘right’ or ‘correctly,’ but it also means being able to stand in the front of the person and the totality of the world and explain ourselves, recognize the facts, the context, explain the wrongdoings and commit to change, to live forgiveness, for that is a far more valuable act and a much less ‘explosive’ than going through social media asking for revenge or simple slander to defame others and causing multiple effects that at times we have no consideration for, because we see it as ‘part of the consequences,’ but I see it now as another source of conflict even for people that haven’t been personally involved in the events.

This is also another rather ‘disastrous’ process that sure, can break us further apart, but in the cases that we do care to assist each other to ‘open eyes,’ we can take the time to share our perspectives on a controversial topic or situation like this to present a more common sensical approach to things, to learn to read things properly, to not take immediate ‘sides’ to a story and to formulate a personal stance in relation to all things that we may become aware of in the world. Doing this can in fact make us grow as humanity, but remaining divided – and so conquered – only adds up to the plethora of problems we have to sort out.

Based on the situation I explained in my previous blog, I became aware of people that came in contact with the information and created a conflict with one another for not agreeing on how things were taken by each. This is also part of seeing each others’ ‘truth’ if you will, it will disrupt the way that we believed we liked or agreed with each other to reveal the truth of who we are and yes, that’s part of discovering self-honesty too, it is not nice, it is not pretty, it will be something quite radical and may seem polarizing and disruptive, but it’s part of the necessary ‘opening’ of the cans of worms as I see it, where only – once again – one’s truth will set ourselves free. Actually if one stands clear within oneself, there is nothing to fear, and this is the way to debunk any claims of wrongdoings that one is certain one hasn’t done. IF one has, then, sure, there we go! It sure is time to step up and assume responsibility and commit to changing what one has done and focus on how to stop recreating the same in the present and in the future, because it is what’s best for all, it will prevent further harm, abuse or offense towards others.

Something that I also see is happening is a sense of false empowerment when accusing others, and this is also something that can only happen if there’s no acknowledgement of shared responsibility.  I’ve been there and done that in the past as well where, as I’ve shared countless of times in this blog throughout the past years how I used to ‘rejoice’ in speaking shit – sorry but that’s what it is – about governments, and the ‘elites’ I thought were to blame for everything going wrong in this world, about religious leaders and organized religions, and basically anyone else I judged as evil and wrong in my previous mindset, the one I had before starting this process of self-awareness with Desteni and the mindset I AM still working with whenever it rears its head within me day to day.

I cannot be any more grateful for the ability that I have now to recognize my co-creation and co-responsibility in the creation of this world, our lives, our bodies as they are. It has assisted me to change the very fiber of my being that used to stand in that sense of ‘entitlement’ to feel like a victim, believing I was ‘empowering’ myself by pointing fingers at others, never realizing that in blame and in that position of victimhood I was in fact the most disempowered, I actually felt the most miserable because I thought that punishment and ‘bringing others down’ was the only way to create any restoration of justice. I was in fact recreating the same problems I was complaining about in this world, I was wishing ‘the end’ of those I believed to be the problem. I never realizing I was ‘digging my own grave’ as they say here, I was doing it all to myself.

Walking the Desteni process and the Eqafe self-support material have enabled me to recognize the actual obstacle that blame and victimhood are, and so rather realize the potential and the actual power/capacity I have to focus on changing me, in stopping blaming others and feeling like a victim, to owning my thoughts, words and deeds, to be willing to recognize my participation in the ‘fucked up’ reality we live in and realize that the one true power I hold is to change ME, and that seeking revenge or ‘justice’ as punishment would truly get us nowhere as humanity but further down the downward spiral.

I have realized that I have to be the change, and stop focusing on pointing fingers at others, because that was causing more harm in my body, it was in fact like an ‘anger’ sickness that made me depressed and hopeless and yes, it has taken quite some time to change it, but every single moment I decide to stand in understanding of a situation within this consideration of who we are in our minds, the consequences we’ve created as a society, the role that each one of us has in creating the outflows we face and no longer taking a unilateral approach to things that I face in my life has been like healing a long lasting ‘wound’ of ‘feeling empowered’ when blaming others and believing that ‘that was the solution.’

Again, it’s not, but it also takes courage and a process to stand in self-honesty, to dare to see who we are, who we have become, to own our choices and decisions made that have taken us to walk through every single aspect of our lives, no matter how ‘fortuitous’ they may seem, if we are experiencing them, then we can own our responsibility in it, which simply means to respond, to own our actions, to be aware of the situations we might possibly create if we act or speak certain words – and to always consider what is best for all involved, to learn to do others as we would like to be done onto, to consider ‘the other’ as myself.

These are key principles that even in the face of moments where I believe that I am being ‘limited’ in my expression about something I believe ‘makes sense and is right’, assist me to take the ‘next step’ which is to read the situation in its current stance, to understand that some people are not yet at that position where they can be willing themselves to understand co-creation yet, to consider that for some people might take longer to understand a more holistic approach to any form of problem creation. To consider as well how blinded we can become by our own emotions or characters we take on that we believe empower us, and can’t see the reality of how they are in fact disempowering us.  Within such understanding of ‘where each other is at’ in their lives, it makes it easier to let go of wanting someone to understand something that they simply might not be ready or willing to acknowledge yet, and that’s where I remind myself of my only true power as well: to be an example of how to best handle the situations, how to stand in the face of conflict, how to take responsibility but not ‘enforce’ change or certain ways on others.

Here is also where trusting myself and trusting life comes in. At times I’ve seen how I can be quite pushy in wanting others to understand something that I see ‘benefits them/everyone involved’ and how this can cause further reactions and realize that such reactions are an indication that there is no ‘opening’ yet in the other person to see what I am seeing/saying. It also might mean that I’m ‘reading’ the situation completely wrong and that I need my own words and actions to be cross-referenced, because they can be in fact out of place and not clear. The reactions also allow me to read ‘where a person is at’ and also see myself in it, to see what still ‘disturbs me’ so that I can work with it and in so, seeing what I haven’t yet forgiven as my own experience, as my own creation. Doing that enables me to ‘move’ as in speak, act, direct accordingly.

I’ve met people in my life, including one of the persons that I’m grateful for has created the opportunity to create this moment of conciliation, that in an almost instant manner we could see that we were ‘on the same page’ so to speak in the reading of the events and the greater scheme of how these things are going on in the world.  This is actually quite cool because! It gives me hope in humanity to find people like that. I can also say this of a person that I met in the most seemingly fortuitous situation and eventually realized how ‘aligned’ we are in order to work together in a project and basically be on the same page about how we view ourselves, our lives and the potential we see in people. That is also another example of how upon communicating and learning to ‘read’ people through their responses I’ve been able to establish relationships with people that I know ‘are there’ in this world and are doing ‘their thing’ and in their own way yet within the same principles.

That’s comforting because, as crazy as it may seem, it is hard at times to walk this process at the level we do within Desteni and at times one feels a bit isolated, as if ‘no one else’ could see and understand things the way we do. Thus it has been comforting to find people that do see life/things in a very similar way and how it IS possible to create that understanding and common ground no matter what their ‘background’ is; it’s a confirmation that life and living principles stand on their own, no matter what ‘road’ you take to get to them, and that’s awesome and it is actually cool to know people like that outside of the group that I know and am aware of are people walking this same process with me – even if living in very distant countries. I am also glad that ‘they are here’ and walking with, even if not ‘in my environment’ at the moment, but always ‘there’ in the virtual world, which is something I am also very grateful for in times that may seem difficult and we need to reach out for support.

Ultimately what matters to me is to go establishing connections with the people that do care, that have eyes, ears and a body ready for the new living reality that we need to co-create, and this is something that ‘comes to the surface’ even from ‘unfortunate’ or bitter events like this one.

I share this because it is also a comforting point for me, to know that besides what may seem like ‘the worst of the words’ surfacing on our ‘daily feeds’ and knocking at our doors, there is something actually way extraordinary to be living for. For me it is a way to keep connecting and meeting people that are taking these steps ‘forward’ in their life, while it also reminds me of the necessity that I have to keep sharing, to not ‘back down’ and become a silent vigilant of the things that are going on in this world.

To sum up, as ‘atrocious’ as it may seem for many, these cans of worms are here for a reason and they sure may lead to temporary conflict and polarizations, but eventually out of all crisis there comes an opportunity for recreation, reinvention, and reconstruction – this is what I’m here for. To learn how to stand in the eye of the storms, to strengthen my resolve, to know that my truth will set me free, to be grateful for those that I can relate to and know that are also ‘here’ on track with the new path for life in this world of which I have vehemently decided to be a part of, because my intent has always been to ‘change the world,’ and from there I went from being ‘angry’ at the world for not changing and blaming everything and everyone around me – lol – to externalizing that eagerness to see ‘world changes out there’ to now internalizing, focusing on my own self-change which start in how to handle situations like this and then spreading some seeds again with others that may be ready to read and listen and share back how they see things themselves.

Once again I would not have this kind of resolve or ‘greater picture’ approach without the support of all things related to Desteni and the Eqafe Eqafe self-supportive material, which I have now integrated in my own skin as a new way to live and approach life. It also allows me to understand the greater ‘cataclysms’ that are taking place and ‘will’ most likely continue to take place in this world where everything will seem really ‘bad’ and consequential and chaotic, but here is where I remind myself and anyone else reading: there’s more to it than what meets the eye.

The best thing to do is to create Understanding, to not take things personal, to not only ‘react’ emotionally to things, to learn to discern, to learn to look back within ourselves and making an informed decision of where we stand about something before ‘spewing’ words about something or someone. To learn to let go and forgive people and situations where one can see that it’s only consequences playing out that one cannot immediately change and can only conciliate in the ‘best way’ that is doable in certain contexts.

What matters, as I said in my previous blog, is who we are in the face of conflict, in the face of admitting our faults, mistakes, falls, it is about learning to forgive ourselves and at times assisting others to do that for themselves if this is not yet considered as part of the solution, which is not limited to simply forgiving and letting go, but comes hand in hand with the commitment to change, to grow, to develop new ways of being now that one sees that the ‘previous ways’ were causing harm or detrimental effects on others. This is to me the real way to create peace, calm and conciliation.

This is our learning curve at the moment, it may seem out of hand, it may seem extreme, but again: owning one’s deeds, taking responsibility, learning to assume the co-creation roles we have in this reality and live the correction of the problematic actions will set us free and will benefit each other substantially. That’s real change, that’s real responsibility to me and that’s a supportive use of moments of conflict, problems and crisis, to be of support in those moments to walk through them the best way that we can, for ourselves and for all parties involved.

556. Transcending Inequality One at a Time

A story of how to be the starting point of getting past social and economic statuses through changing our relationships towards one another

I read the following article today Commercialisation: the antithesis of sharing by Mohammed Mesbahi and I find some supportive aspects he looks at when it comes to realizing that the obstacle to sharing are our individual desires to succeed at whatever cost above others, above nature, above common sense and how this way of thinking in a very egotistical manner has permeated into the nature of commerce itself, in how we exchange goods and services and so the nature of the system as we see it and live it on a daily basis.

I’d like to share a more personal perspective and experience as a way to walk through a potential solution in the seemingly realm of the ‘impossible’ when it comes to stopping the current nature of this system – which is entirely OUR human nature embodied in the ‘nature of the system in itself’ –  so that one can consider the effect that we can have within the decision to stand in certain living principles and decide to take on processes of self-change that precisely stop the antagonism, the fight, the constant hidden sense of blame towards ‘a few’ in the system as the only culprits to where we are currently in this massive inequality, because! It always takes two to tango and so we are all equally responsible for what’s here.

Invariably so, whatever consequences we face from this economic-outflow as damages are the ultimate wakeup call – just like any other consequence – for us to start looking back at ourselves as the source of the problem and so realizing the solutions we can embody if we also decide to put on some of our very own  

If I look at what I had to deconstruct and redefine within myself individually through walking this process with Desteni in order to embrace the equality of all people and all things – therefore of everything that’s here – I have to first start off by saying how it’s not as easy to simply ‘speak the words’ and right away live such equality as life. There are massive layers of mental conditioning that were accepted and allowed by myself throughout my entire life based on the totality of my  environment, family, social and economic context, information, education that I made my own and that I learned to start acting out on as a young person in this world.

An example is how in my early teens upon having access to magazines and some ads on TV, I was starting to get very much focused on wearing certain brands on my clothes, being quite ‘picky’ in relation to the social and economic status of the people I would be friends with and generally being more cautious and concerned about the role that money plays in creating relationships between people, in choosing friendships, in choosing where to go and hang out in or what one can afford to buy as clothes, entertainment, trips, luxury time, restaurants and the rest of it.

At the time – and this being when I was 12 or 13 years old – that was a source of insecurity as well when being in a school where people with a good amount of money went too as well. I am quite aware that my parents did their best to keep me grounded and not be impressed by the amount of money I saw some peers had, but ultimately it does affect one when not being ‘equal’ in that sense, especially during my early teenager years where upon seeing that I could not ‘follow up’ with their lifestyles or feel that I could ‘fit in’ entirely according to their hobbies, their likes and preferences and ‘affording’ them, a resignation emerged within me where I simply ‘gave up’ even trying to ‘fit in’ in certain groups of people. I’ve never been in a rich family, yet was fortunate enough to have access to very decent education which I am also grateful for, but that came also with witnessing quite an array of lifestyles that I simply was not going to even ‘try’ and match because I simply couldn’t and eventually I made myself entirely believe that I didn’t want it either.  

In that ‘resignation’ also came a definition of myself as ‘never being able to reach a higher economic status’ and so, building a sense of resentment towards those that were ‘richer’ than me, where I used intellect as a way to compensate for what I perceived was a ‘lack’ of traits that these other people had, like the money, the looks, the expensive things, the access to things and places that I simply gave up on even trying to get or fit into, which was entirely my decision as well because I am aware my sisters – having been in the exact same family context as I was – managed quite well to be part of that and not having to exist in an ‘urge’ to have more money or anything like that, which was cool. But in my case I became more like  the critical-eye to the lifestyles of my peers, demeaning them, judging them and being over-critical on what they would spend money on. The interesting thing is I made friends with them as well and as much as we could relate to each other as ‘human beings’ and ‘peers at school’ there was always an underlying point of separation based on me not precisely ‘having’ that which most of them had in terms of money and common lifestyles.

The bottom line is that I allowed this money-factor to determine ‘who I am’ in relation to others while going through junior high and high school, wherein as much as I could get along with everyone, I also in a very subconscious and conscious manner separate myself from them ‘by default’ due to the money-factor being an ever present point of comparison within me. And I have to say that I masked this quite well by taking a more critical eye to all things capitalism and the sheer desire for money and going into the judgment of it all as being ‘bad’ or ‘selfish’ as well, which I would blurt out at any opportunity I could.

I created a form of resentment towards money itself as well because I simply went into the resignation of ‘never’ in my life possibly been able to get to have their position, their status, their family benefits and the rest of it, which fueled more my antagonistic personality in which I gained a sense of power through in fact feeling powerlessness and inferiority/being less than when standing next to people that I knew had a lot of money, even denying the possibility of me having a boyfriend at the time of such friendship circles due to me believing that I was simply ‘not equal’ to them and at the same time, yep! There were some cases where some may have arranged relationships and marriages between ‘similar families’ to re-create the same elites they’ve always been a part of. Now that I look back at this it’s quite funny that I got to see firsthand how elitism works within a school context and how I accepted and allowed myself to get affected by it because I frankly saw it as impossible for me to ‘stand fully equal’ to the power of money that others portrayed in ‘who they are’ as personalities, as the stuff they own, as the positions they had in society, which I consider is entirely the same process that we all get conditioned through with either being on the ‘have’ or ‘have not’s side.

So, what I am aiming at here is looking at how each one of us recreates the acceptance and allowance of inequality through accepting and allowing money to define ‘who we are’ and so proceed to assess that one is ‘inferior’ or ‘superior’ to others for example in the context of ‘who has more or less money.’ And I’m also aware that not every single person defined themselves according to the money they had, maybe to some of them it was just a second skin they could not differentiate themselves from to the extent that there was no reflection upon it.

But in my case it did become a silent source of inadequacy, questioning and resenting elitism – while I made it quite a part of myself as well through judging, criticizing and antagonism out of spite – and at the same time creating a denial to ever conceive that ‘I could ‘belong’ to that’ – yet, would I have actually wanted to be part of that? At the time it wasn’t really so, but who knows if I had been born in what I call a ‘golden crib’? I bet it’s quite hard to distinguish ‘what’s normal’ or ‘the standard’ when all that you’ve ever lived in is comfort, luxury, benefits, VIP status wherever you go and frankly, I consider it will take a long time for all of these points to change, because it actually begins with us debunking the notion that money gives us ‘power’ to our persona, that we become in fact ‘more’ with the more money or control over others we get to have, and because we get so used to the comfort that money brings and because ultimately, we all would like a good and comfortable lifestyle, the problems are the extremes in it all where we’d have to learn how to be moderate yet not judge money as ‘evil’ in itself, but see through that veil to continue working on our potentials, on or purposes, what we can do in order to benefit more of life with money, instead of continuing to recreate the same parasitical patterns fueled by ego-driven desires.

I have also been on the side of directly creating hatred to a fellow peer in school – that later on became a good friend of mine by the way – where I would challenge his ‘wits’ that I considered were the result of having lived in a business family where he already was ‘hard wired’ to think in money and business-making ways, where he knew that getting more money wasn’t about ‘wishing money’ and that’s it – he understood that it all starts with creating the relationships, having the motivation of yes ‘making money’ but creating a suitable ideas for businesses.

At the time in my teenage years, I was getting to be more conscious/aware of capitalism and the system in itself, where I became his faithful opponent whenever he’d speak out his opinion that was geared to seeking this personal benefit through actions that would ultimately lead to ‘winning,’ to ‘being successful’ even if that meant stepping on top of others. One can imagine this kind of back and forths during class discussions over readings like ‘The Art of War’ and how I could simply have a hard time conceiving having to consider so many difficult moves in order to ‘win’ over someone else and me questioning that, which yes ultimately turned out to be quite ‘naïve’ when it comes to knowing ‘the ways of the world’ at the time.

I also had a very moral-based view on life at the time, where I was placing myself in this ‘good side’ of the equation, while not even being aware how we in fact have to consume life every single moment in order to exist and I didn’t even consider that as a factor that outflows into this world-enslavement that we’ve co-created, yet I was very quick to judge his Machiavellian ways and challenge his positions in what would end up in heated back and forths in front of the whole class. I definitely am aware I wanted to debase him and treated him as if he was only an egotistical rich dude that I had to expose at the eyes of everyone else, but eventually we walked a very realistic forgiveness process in our mutual relationship over time.

Situations happened in his life where somehow he probably realized how some of his views were separating him from more and more people – as in being disliked, hated, etc. – and he started being more considerate, flexible and that’s when we actually started having constructive discussions where we eventually found a common ground and I could learn more from how he was ‘wired’ to look at things in his mind, which was quite awesome by the way in how he could look at solutions and ways to ‘move’ reality to create a particular outcome.

In the school context, I was able to then take advantage of his skills and ways to even relate to teachers and we’d work in teams together when it came to school projects and such, it was quite the collaboration for our two last years of high school where I knew my ‘strengths’ and I knew his and we’d made a good team to get things done in a win-win way – which of course in school terms translates into good grades or passing exams and projects etc.

So I share this because it was quite a cool process to walk through after having had some two previous years of constant conflict with each other. But in order to create that, we both had to work with our personal issues as prejudices or points to transcend – like perceptions and opinions about each other – that had been primarily shaped according to and through money, defined according to his family name and social position and my own which was of a regular middle-class person that had to let go of a sense of inferiority towards him in order to start rather appreciating and developing more awareness on who he really was as an individual, behind this ‘façade’ that I had always seen him through which ‘oozed’ superiority at my eyes and possibly at the eyes of others. I had to apply humbleness and I know for a fact he did as well.

Later on I got to know who he was in a more in-depth manner which was actually very different to the myriad of prejudices or ‘first impressions’ that I had gotten from having heard a few of his opinions about just anything he could express, which I guess bothered me so much because they also reflected back to myself how opinionated I became to ‘counter act’ him and so, it was eventually kind of interesting how similar we ended up being when stepping out of our own egos. From ‘hating’ each other’s’ guts, we got to appreciate each other as friends and collaborators at the time.

Even though I had shared about this friendship in blogs before, it’s certainly the first time that I bring through the dimension of money, social status, ego and power as a reason for me to exist in a form of ‘inferiority’ towards him, while I also got to discover how he got to ‘make up for’ certain more personal inferiorities through the power, connections, relationships he could build through and with money itself. I actually got to see this more ‘real’ aspect within a few people in the same environment, and I had not reflected how interesting that part of my life was when it comes to being able to see people for ‘who they are’ as equals to me, with the same kind of ‘personal problems’ or insecurities, yet how the notion of money or certain status became a veil for me to see them as ‘unequal’ and ultimate a way for some to ‘cope’ with more personal issues – which is the same that I did with using intellect as a way to compensate for my sense of inferiority in terms of the ‘lack’ of money compared to others or how I didn’t have the ‘perfect looks’ and how I didn’t aspire to become a super-rich person as I initially thought I had to do when I had some ideas earlier on in my life of becoming a financial advisor and follow through that same kind of lifestyle that I saw others were aspiring or already having around me.

The greatest thing from this all is that I could see people through the façade, through the amount of money in their wallets or awaiting for them through their family, and I got to see who they really were as fellow teenagers, struggling with the same peer-pressure that we all collectively created towards one another and that it would only be through a directive decision within ourselves to ‘let go’ of those superficial values to really establish a point of equality, a common ground – even if not ‘in its totality’ – at least as a way to establish a consideration towards others and not just focus on ‘oneself.’

Who knows, this might also in my case be a result of having been in a Jesuit school that did inculcate some of those ‘serving others’ principles in various practical ways, which I am sure my peers also got to learn from and I realize that as much as I had initially despised the whole ‘set up’ in that school, I got to test myself in very specific ways in there when it comes to being in the midst of how elitism is brewed, inculcated and ‘knitted’ through relationships that begin in a simple place such as a classroom and how they build up to become the very people and relationships that later on stand interconnected in leadership positions in businesses, politics and schooling systems which continue shaping these specific circles of concentrated power from generation to generation.

So, what can I learn from this? What is the actual key to start ‘rewiring’ the fabric of our unequal society? It’s definitely not going to be through expecting people in elitist positions to sacrifice their benefits. My friend always let me know that he wanted to do good but of course with also getting his big piece of the cake along with it all, and I found this as acceptable because I knew that him and people like him would never give up the privileges that they have for the benefit of the majority. However there was an emergence of a consideration to not be so ‘obsessive’ about power, to create some modesty and moderation around it while also considering something that is beneficial or for ‘the greater good’ and that being linked to a purpose in his life. This is the last thing I got to know of from him some years ago when I last saw him after several years of having last been together in high school. And the key here is to understand what he decided to go through in order to ‘moderate’ his very ingrained ‘power-seeking’ ways, and that was linked to a personal process where he saw himself devoid of purpose in life, going to therapies to ‘seek the meaning of life’ and assisting himself with regular visits to psychologists, it’s commendable that he sought his ways.

It was then that I understood how maybe people like him are more common than I thought, people that may ‘have it all’ but still seek a meaning to their lives or lose a ‘sense’ for their lives even though anyone else would crave to be in their financial position as well. He didn’t stop having some political and business aspirations at a bigger scale, but those aspirations included doing something that’s beneficial for people, creating something of quality and common good that gives him sufficient money to live well off, but at the same time without leaving others aside from his plan. And I consider that this is the kind of self-change that we can encourage within each other whenever we have an opportunity to do so, through personal example in our relationship with others.

I’d like to think that I may have influenced his potential to see outside of the box he had been entirely geared to and consider greater benefits, but ultimately that would be my own self-interest speaking. I frankly have not established any contact with him as of late, but I made a deal with him that if he’d become part of the local politics as some of his family members did, that he’d call me to create some social projects to assist people in learning more about themselves, their mind, their ability and capacity to live better within themselves, while also considering ways in which people can both contribute economically to a society and benefit directly from the fruit of that cooperation, without the fear of losing a job, without the ‘barely making it through’ experience and limitation. That’s yet to be seen J but hey! at least I had the idea and he got to know how serious I was with all that I dedicate my life to.

Therefore, I consider we have a great lesson to share here, me and in the name of that friend of mine where we both had to step aside from our social/economic conditioning in order to find the common ground and a middle ground as well where I am not ‘battling against’ people in higher social statuses or continually criticizing them as reckless and egotistical, because I also got to be aware of how it takes hard work to build any long-lasting successful business and so, long-lasting source of money as well. The problem is surely when a never-quenching thirst for money/power and control ensues in an individual and that’s where the personal moderation and measure comes in, and that can only be a very individual decision that maybe each one of us could influence or affect through sharing stories like this or decisions we’ve made within ourselves to stop defining ‘who we are’ through the amount or ‘value’ of things we own, or what we dress or look like or the amount of money we have in our bank accounts – while also stopping ‘fighting’ against a perceived ‘reckless’ elite, but instead find ways to cooperate, one by one, to stop the antagonism and rather use each one’s strengths to collaborate and create a more sustainable system where we can forge win-win solutions.

This is then how I’ve also decided to no longer fuel that personality that stands as an apparent ‘victim’ at the hands of the ‘all powerful ones,’ because once you get to know people like that, you can’t really keep up a straight face and not acknowledge their effort, their focus and dedication to get what they have. Ultimately, we are all equally responsible for the way that we currently function and operate in the system, we cannot blame others that were clever enough and possibly had some intrinsic ‘wiring’ to think in business-terms while some of us were more ‘slow’, ‘detached’ and judgmental when it comes to money, because of not understanding it as a life-enabler but still seeing it as an ‘evil’ that we had to get rid of, which is something I surely will still have to work on in my own life in order to equalize myself to money in all ways, to use it in a way that can benefit more people and at the same time dissolve any remnant of ‘inferiority’ and ‘superiority’ based on my past experiences in certain social-circles and situations where the ‘money factor’ was a source of inferiority for me.

And this, my friends, is precisely what I see we all are aware of, we all can ‘feel it’ and ‘be it’ at a very silent agreement, this intrinsic inequality and separation that we’ve created toward one another through the eyes of money, of social status, of ‘positions’ in society with our peers, in our day to day lives and with new people we meet.

So! That’s where focusing on who we are as equals, getting past the notions of money, status, richness and poverty comes in – without fighting it or desiring it – but instead understanding the current consequence in which we all are currently existing in within this ‘monopoly game’ that we can also one by one and so collectively start recreating into an ‘Equapoly’ game and learn to use each other’s’ strengths to cooperate in creating a more best for all scenario in terms of our world economy; it is possible, and I’ve just shared how it boils down to the very kind of relationships and people and purpose that we decide to cultivate within our lives and so in our societies.

Let’s never underestimate the power that standing by principles has even in the face of the seemingly ‘stubborn and righteous’, we all have that same potential to wake up and change, starting with and focusing on ourselves first and living forgiveness towards others and our consequences, learning to work together and focusing on doing and creating what’s best for all.

414. Solution to Ferguson: Learn Self-Forgiveness

 

clip_image001

A fascinating point opened up as I was watching CNN. Yes I tend to criticize CNN quite a bit for the false information and scare they provoke, but as I was cooking last night and turned it on to see what kind of ‘disinfo’ they were sharing, a female TV show host was being interviewed about Ferguson and the words ‘Forgiveness in Ferguson’ were on the headlines of the news section and as I seek for such info on the net, I found yet another reverend that talks about Forgiveness required to get to a solution. What’s interesting about the woman speaking about Forgiveness is that beyond the usual ‘being able to forgive another,’ she explained there is forgiveness to apply to ourselves, which is another way of saying: we require to apply Self-Forgiveness for what we have accepted and allowed – almost her words there.

 

clip_image002

 

What do we have to Self-Forgive here? Upon witnessing the current ‘rioting’ and looting and anger that people in Ferguson experience, what we have to do as humanity is realize that this violence, this sense of ‘being violated’ will get us nowhere, because what we are witnessing is only the outflow of our entire history of abuse, disregard, violence and harm we have imposed toward each other, our environment, we have essentially violated our right to life by complying to, accepting and allowing ‘the way the world works’ as this current dog-eat-dog functioning of the system in a blind manner. This world-system – our laws, our institutions, our governments, our fears, our paranoia, our media, our scares, our injustice – is our collective creation, this is what we have to begin to self-forgive here first because as long as we continue to see ‘perpetrators’ and ‘culprits’ outside of ourselves, the fight, the reclaiming of ‘justice’ will continue without any sense of self-responsibility, which is the rather uncomfortable truth: any act of abuse is not done by ‘others’ but it’s always what we have collectively co-created by having abdicated our participation and decision making processes to decide what is best for all.

The fact that the word ‘Forgiveness’ is pointed out in our MSM (Mainstream-media) as something that is required to solve the problem, should not be taken for granted: it is one step further to understand that we have to step down from our righteousness, our ‘victimized self’ that we climb upon as our mind-horse where we take ‘the abused’ position to ‘ask for justice’ without first focusing on seeing and coming to realize how it is that all the problems we are facing is our collective consequence of having Never actually having cared to review the laws, the agreements, the money systems, the general structures by which we organize and live as a society, which would then of course lead us to see why do we have to create all of these laws and live in constant fear of one another, protecting our ‘right to defend ourselves’ from other potential ‘wrong doers’ or criminals, instead of creating a world system that can benefit everyone and so naturally create peace by doing so?

What we have missed is that the real problem exists within our own minds, within our desire to blame something or someone for any form of abuse, instead of seeing how no justice, no equality, no support or real care has ever existed toward one another as living beings because: We Haven’t Created it, We Haven’t Lived such words ourselves in the first place! All that has ever existed is the war mentality, the selfish nature of only caring for our own wellbeing and not even giving a thought about others’ lives.

How can we ‘demand’ something like Respect when we haven’t ever really lived SELF-Respect such as ensuring that one is not accepting and allowing any form of abuse, harm, diminishment or counterproductive actions that prevent us from living to our fullest potential, individually – so, how can we as individuals feel ‘violated by others’ when we have never cultivated this basic point of self-support as self-respect?

 

clip_image003

 

How can we ask for ‘Justice’ toward some authorities and institutions that we created based on our inherent belief of being unable to direct ourselves and take responsibility for ourselves within the consideration of what is best for all, to create and structure our entire economic, political and social system within such principled living considerations: considering everyone’s wellbeing, supporting everyone to live in dignity, to create a sense of community and solidarity that leads to a well-functioning society… none of these aspects have been our starting point as human beings to coexist in. Even if these ‘rights’ are written in constitutions, on paper they look really nice, but when it comes to living such words and agreements: we have all considerably failed to do so because we have ultimately abdicated our responsibility to live such principles ourselves, individually, which leads to outcomes such as wars and any other form of brutality imposed by our designated ‘authorities’ to create a sense of ‘order and control,’ organisms and institutions that exist as an outflow of us believing that it is more important to impose punishment and be constantly spied on for a sense of security rather than focusing on providing everyone a general good living standard so that the ‘anomalies’ of the system are reduced to genuine mental problems – not ‘criminality’ as theft due to the necessity to get money to live in basic dignity. This is what we have co-created as our social injustice.

This is why, the more we face consequences that shook the foundation of our so-called ‘stability’ or disrupt our belief that ‘everything is generally fine,’ the more we have to start considering that the solution resides within each one of us. It is awaiting to be ‘awakened’ as a sense of self-responsibility to first Live in each one of us such as Self-Respect, to Take Self Responsibility for what we have co-created as our world and so be Willing to Work Together for solutions, to no longer depend on institutions/authorities that are there to ‘calm the waters’ based on imposition of force or further punishment toward those that have resorted to violence or crime because that’s all we have ever learned as human beings to do in moments of distress, fear and desperation to ‘get an answer’ – once again, just because we haven’t learned how to become and implement solutions that benefit everyone, which is absolutely possible for us to do.

 

Free Yourself - Copy

 

The solution begins within self: not giving into fear, helplessness, hopelessness, rioting, protesting or ‘demanding’ answers from those ‘authorities’ we have placed in such positions because we have rendered ourselves as useless or incapable of solving our own problems – it’s about time we begin to Self-Forgive our perceived victimization on these events, to self-forgive the accepted and allowed abuse we have co-created as our ‘world system’ and how we treat each other as criminals, as potential enemies, as a ‘problem’ instead of facing our own problem inside ourselves: to face and self-forgive our paranoia toward each other, to face and self-forgive our fears, to face and self-forgive our belief of being incapable of changing things – we have to self-forgive all of the ideas, beliefs and perceptions we have about the problems that are going on in this world, to not call out on the perceived ‘culprits’ but to stand up in the realization that: we did this to ourselves, this is our creation and only through allowing us to self-forgive this massive abdication of self-responsibility will we ever come to a general agreement that the solution resides within each one of us: to learn how to Live Self-Respect, to Live Solidarity and learning how to Live by Principles which will prevent us from having to ‘punish’ others as a way to solve problems that are fully preventable if we so agree and decide to create a world system that can benefit everyone’s lives, because that is what we all want for ourselves anyways, isn’t it?

 

The solution is not further police intervention, no further ‘presidential intervention’ or curfews…

 

Time to focus on the solutions, on Self-Forgiveness as a first way to recognize our complicity and Self-Responsibility in all problems in the world right now and so creating a culture of becoming and providing Solutions instead of continuing existing in indignation, victimization and the perception of being powerless to change things.

The time is now, we have only one life to do this – so let’s stand up as examples of what we can be and become when we integrate self-responsibility in our lives and expanding this sense of awareness toward others in our everyday living.

361. Food is a Human Right | Equal Money

There is sufficient food and resources for everyone to have the necessary daily and sustainable supply of quality nourishment to live and support our physical bodies in the best way possible. The problems are corporate interests and a rigged system that doesn’t grant access to this Basic Human Right. Money in Equal Money is a rights document that ensures all individuals are given money/access to  buy the necessary food to fulfill a healthy quality living standard that is best for all, including animals and sustainability of the Earth’s resources.

Problem                                              

  • People around the globe Lack Food due to the configuration of our current economic system designed to only benefit a minority while leaving the majority out of the picture of dignified living conditions and equal living standards:

    • “The population of the US, Canada, and the EU combined. The number of malnourished people worldwide is just under 1 billion people – nearly a seventh of the global population.”

870 million people do not eat enough

(Source:State of Food Insecurity in the World,FAO, 2012)

 

    The vast majority of hungry people (98 percent) live in developing countries, where almost 15% of the population is undernourished.

 

(Source:State of Food Insecurity in the World,FAO, 2012)1 in 6 children is underweight

    One out of six children — roughly 100 million — in developing countries is underweight.

    (Source: Global health Observatory, WHO, 2011)

 

 

    If children don't receive nutritious food in their first 2 years, they may be stunted for life

     

     

        A third of al child deaths are linked to hunger

         

         

         

        World Hunger                                                      

          • There are 1 Billion undernourished people in the world today. That means one in eight people do not get enough food to be healthy and lead an active life. Hunger and malnutrition are in fact the number one risk to the health worldwide — greater than AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined.
          • Among the key causes of hunger are natural disasters, conflict, poverty, poor agricultural infrastructure and over-exploitation of the environment.
          • As well as the obvious sort of hunger resulting from an empty stomach, there is also the hidden hunger of micronutrient deficiencies which make people susceptible to infectious diseases, impair physical and mental development, reduce their labour productivity and increase the risk of premature death.
          • Hunger does not only weigh on the individual. It also imposes a crushing economic burden on the developing world. Economists estimate that every child whose physical and mental development is stunted by hunger and malnutrition stands to lose 5-10 percent in lifetime earnings.

         

        it costs 25 us cents per day to giv a child all thenutrients needed to grow up healthy

        “It takes only $0.25 for the World Food Programme to give a hungry schoolchild a cup of nutritious food. $50 will feed a child at school for an entire year.”

        There is more money spent on War than on Food

         

         

          • Hunger also weakens the immune system. Deprived of the right nutrition, hungry children are especially vulnerable and become too weak to fight off disease and may die from common infections like measles and diarrhoea. Each year, almost 7 million children die before reaching the age of five; malnutrition is a key factor is over a third of these deaths
            • (source: Levels and Trends in Child Mortality, IGME, 2012)

        source: http://www.wfp.org/hunger/what-is

         

        WHO 

        • Most of the world’s hungry live in developing countries. According to the latest Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) statistics, there are 870 million hungry people in the world and 98 percent of them are in developing countries.  They are distributed like this:
        • 578 million in Asia and the Pacific
          239 million in Sub-Saharan Africa
          53 million in Latin America and the Caribbean
          37 million in the Near East and North Africa
        • 19 million in developed countries

         

          • Hungry farmers
          • FAO calculates that around half of the world’s hungry people are from smallholder farming communities,  surviving off marginal lands prone to natural disasters like drought or flood. Another 20 percent belong to landless families dependent on farming and about 10 percent live in communities whose livelihoods depend on herding, fishing or forest resources.
          • The remaining 20 percent live in shanty towns on the periphery of the biggest cities in developing countries. The numbers of poor and hungry city dwellers are rising rapidly along with the world’s total urban population.

         

          • Women
          • Women are the world’s primary food producers, yet cultural traditions and social structures often mean women are much more affected by hunger and poverty than men. A mother who is stunted or underweight due to an inadequate diet often give birth to low birthweight children.
          • Around 50 per cent of pregnant women in developing countries are iron deficient (source: Unicef). Lack of iron means 315,000 women die annually from hemorrhage at childbirth. As a result, women, and in particular expectant and nursing mothers, often need special or increased intake of food.

         

          • Rural risk
          • Three-quarters of all hungry people live in rural areas, mainly in the villages of Asia and Africa. Overwhelmingly dependent on agriculture for their food, these populations have no alternative source of income or employment. As a result, they are vulnerable to crises. Many migrate to cities in their search for employment, swelling the ever-expanding populations of shanty towns in developing countries.

         

         

        WHY

        • Nature

          Natural disasters such as floods, tropical storms and long periods of drought are on the increase — with calamitous consequences for food security in poor, developing countries.

         

        • War
        • From Asia to Africa to Latin America, fighting displaces millions of people from their homes, leading to some of the world’s worst hunger emergencies. Since 2004, conflict in the Darfur region of Sudan has uprooted more than a million people, precipitating a major food crisis — in an area that had generally enjoyed good rains and crops.

         

        • In war, food sometimes becomes a weapon. Soldiers will starve opponents into submission by seizing or destroying food and livestock and systematically wrecking local markets. Fields and water wells are often mined or contaminated, forcing farmers to abandon their land.

         

        • When conflict threw Central Africa into confusion in the 1990s, the proportion of hungry people rose from 53 percent to 58 percent. By comparison, malnutrition is on the retreat in more peaceful parts of Africa such as Ghana and Malawi.

         

        • Agricultural infrastructure
        • In the long-term, improved agricultural output offers the quickest fix for poverty and hunger.

         

        • All conspire to limit agricultural yields and access to food.

         

        • Too many developing countries lack key agricultural infrastructure, such as enough roads, warehouses and irrigation. The results are high transport costs, lack of storage facilities and unreliable water supplies.

         

        • But, although the majority of developing countries depend on agriculture, their governments economic planning often emphasizes urban development.

         

        • Over-exploitation of environment

          Poor farming practices, deforestation, overcropping and overgrazing are exhausting the Earth’s fertility and spreading the roots of hunger.
        • Increasingly, the world’s fertile farmland is under threat from erosion, salination and desertification.

         

          • Poverty Trap
          • In developing countries, farmers often cannot afford seed to plant the crops that would provide for their families. Craftsmen lack the means to pay for the tools to ply their trade. Others have no land or water or education to lay the foundations for a secure future.

         

        • This is the result of seed control imposed by corporations like Monsanto that ensure farmers become mere labor force to produce food that is in accordance to an agenda of privatization, genetic modification, resource control and further contamination that is leading farmers to the point of suicide when realizing the contracts that they are forced to sign if they want to keep themselves ‘in business’ – The same happens with the monopolization of food distribution that leads to massive profits to a few chains that have all control of products that we consume where not only price but also the quality and conditions of our meals are being corrupted in order to fulfill more profit-making agendas where any form of actual care for our health is overridden by the need to control and generate more money out of a basic human need, which is food

        These are some of the problems … go to the Next section for solutions

         

         

        Solutions                                                              

        • Food is a Fundamental Human Right and it must be granted to every individual by Constitutional Right where all Human Beings are given access to all foods and  nutrients to live a healthy and fulfilling life. This is possible due to understanding that all Resources of the Earth must be Equally distributed/ given access to all inhabitants of the planet in order to feed ourselves properly. It is a certainty that lacking resources is not the problem, but rather the system of power and control that would not grant all equal access to this – this will be solved through the implementation of Equal Money where your money is your access to that which we require to live  in the best possible condition.

         

         
        In an Equal Money System, Food will be a Basic Human Right. Food will no longer be detrimentally linked to money, where money decides the availability and quality of food and transparency of information. Food will no longer be tool for Profit but a Source of Life.
        Day 204: Food Monopoly and Equal Money Capitalism

         

        • Equal Money Capitalism: Your work will enable you to earn money to buy the best quality food available existent in a system where profit won’t define the type of food you obtain, instead the highest quality standards will be implemented to know exactly what it is that we are consuming and how it has been produced from the moment of extraction to its final distribution center. This is part of the necessary transparency to ensure no hidden agendas are integrated in the very foods we eat. There won’t be privatization of resources, but organized labor to extract and produce sufficient food to ensure it is enough for everyone in the world in a sustainable basis.

         

        • We realize that providing a fulfilling diet for all individuals increases the ability for human beings to be well developed as well as improving performance in educational processes. All Children will have access to food from the moment of conception, gestation in the mother’s womb to ensures proper development,we understand that healthy mothers and children are the foundation of the preventive measures to eradicate diseases, virus and weaker immunologic systems. Information about proper nutrition will also go hand in hand with necessary education for parents to know how to feed their child in all various stages of their growth and development.

         

        • Quality foods will be a global standard that will form part of the global transparency to disclose all processes involved in food production, labeling of products to inform the people what is exactly being consumed – this means that many of our products will have to be reconfigured and reassessed according to its actual nutrimental value as opposed to mere profit-making products that do more harm than any good.

         

        • Food Safety: By Legal determination, all proven to be Cancerous substances, toxic chemicals, pollutants, fertilizers, genetically modified seeds and any other form of deliberate intervention to our food that is detrimental for living beings’ health will cease to exist once that we, the people of the world, ensure that our food is purified and reconfigured to be of actual support and is safe for every individual that consumes it – this is part of the de-monopolization process that will take place once that profit is no longer the driving force in our world system and corporations cease to have power over what we eat.  Instead providing quality healthy foods will be the standard that is sustained, guarded and supervised by all individuals as it is part of our collective responsibility to never again allow tyrant corporations to take control of our food, crops and distribution of it.  All necessary research to reverse these effects will form part of the restoration of our directive principle upon the food that we eat.

         

        • Consumption habits will be taught to parents and teachers where our food preferences will be transformed to be of actual support in accordance to physical body requirements. Diets will be given to every person and caretaker of minors to ensure that by virtue of having equal access to food, the nutritional requirements are given to all as an actual Human Right – this means that the Access to Food that we in fact Require is part of the new way in which we will ensure that everyone has the necessary means to live well. It will depend on each one’s work and further consumption preferences to buy extra treats, but the basics will be granted as a basic necessity that will be covered by default – this is the real end of Hunger.

         

        • The Government’s function – which will be any individual that wants to cooperate with supervision purposes to ensure all food production and distribution is optimized in an best for all manner. This will include designating the necessary resources for scientific and agricultural research to enhance food production technologies, optimize it and restore it to function in accordance to the natural cycles of the Earth, along with necessary corrections for further resource efficiency in all the processes involved in food production – this will include rehabilitation of eroded and ‘dead fields’ to be suitable for crops again, as well as providing the necessary infrastructure and education for people in places where food has not been grown due to lack of resources.

         

        • We will all support with Food Production according to the laws of physical supply and demand which means there are no market forces that determine the availability of food, it will be a process of logistics, human labor/work force, technology, transportation, distribution and sustainability at an ecological level what will be taken into consideration to ensure that food is guaranteed to all 7 billion people in this Earth – it is possible, we simply have to create the necessary infrastructure to do so in order to guarantee the application of the Fundamental Human Right to grant Food to all individuals equally.

        The following is part of the Constitutional Fundamental Human Rights as promulgated by the Equal Life Foundation.

           

          The Third Fundamental Human Right is that: Every Human, Fundamentally, Requires Food to Exist, Food to Have a Life on Earth and therefore, Food (which is primarily, actually, a Substance that is Produced by the Earth for Free, to a degree – except for the Human Labour part) –

          Food is the Third Basic Human Right. Without Food, Nobody can Exist. The very moment Food becomes a Scarcity that is Used for Control, one Actually Produce and Change the Human into the Behavior of a Slave-Master Relationship and there exist No Human Right in that Relationship.

        • Knowing with certainly what we are consuming/ drinking is the greatest safety measure we can co-create by working as a team that ensures only what is best for all is conducted in our food production processes. Food labeling will be an imperative requirement as well as providing the necessary nutritional education as mentioned to ensure that no underweight or overweight is produced – this will go hand in hand with removing products containing substances that are only meant to create addictions, like too much sugar, artificial flavors and growth enhancements, since the starting point of our food will be to nurture ourselves, not to make money out of it. Ensuring your child will be given the best quality foods is ensuring a lifetime of healthy habits and conditions – this is only possible if we all cooperate to become equal supervisors of how our food is produced, packaged and distributed.

         

        • Wars won’t exist in a world where life will be honored instead of antagonized and fought against in means of obtaining resources, work force, territory or any other political purpose. In a world where Life is Recognized and Valued in Equality we will all instead cooperate to ensure that the countries  and regions of the world with most lack are the ones that obtain the immediate support to stop and eradicate world hunger.

        360. Humanitarianism and Equal Money

         

        If any humanitarian organization and endeavor had any real effect in this world, we would have seen an actual improvement in the quality of lives of all individuals, it is not so.  Humanitarianism as a private funded aid should not exist when it is people’s human rights that must be conceded and made effective by virtue of recognized Constitutional Equality – we have to stop playing the game of ‘good doers’ when this is about Equal Social Responsibility: we have the Solution to the problems we have all accepted and allowed to exist here.

         

        Continuing with:

         

        Problem                                                             

        “In its most general form, humanitarianism is an ethic of kindness, benevolence and sympathy extended universally and impartially to all human beings. Humanitarianism has been an evolving concept historically but universality is a common element in its evolution. No distinction is to be made in the face of suffering or abuse on grounds of gender, sexual orientation, tribe, caste, age, religion, or nationality”

        http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Humanitarianism

         

        • Placing the needs of the human at the center as a point of focus or attention to provoke awareness, realization on the state and conditions other individuals are living in around the world is a first step to understand the problems required to attend by all of us in this world by virtue of being part of it. Humanitarianism implies exercising a form of empathy toward those that we get to know through books, articles, documentaries, ‘field trips’ or any other accounting of facts that demonstrate the ways in which fellow living beings are experiencing some form of suffering beyond our immediate locality, family, friends or colleagues. It broadens the picture that we are usually subsumed in by becoming aware of the severe problems endured by ourselves as human beings such as ‘modern day slavery,’ wars, poverty and famine, religious indoctrination, child abuse in all its facets, dictatorships, forced labor, etc. However we seldom realize that these problems are existent due to how our current monetary system functions and that their suffering is in fact the consequence of all of us complying to function and exist in a polarized economic system where, by a struck of luck, some get to be in non-suffering positions and others have to ‘pay the price’ for the wealthy lifestyles endowed by some form of ‘divine luck’ to a few.

         

        • In the same way, Humanitarianism is usually conducted by people that have more than enough resources to propose means and ways to support those in need – why is it that only private organizations are focusing on alleviating the suffering of those that would have to be cared for by the system itself? Simple, the system was not design to take care after everyone equally. This is how unfortunately Humanitarian Aid has become part of the means and ways in which money is once again conducted by elites that end up making profit by providing non-sustainable aid to alleviate the extreme need of those that not only live in poverty for a few weeks, but are subjugated to a system of lack from birth to death. It is thus clear that any form of Humanitarian aid is unsustainable and ultimately, a way to earn money by those that conduct such philanthropic tasks which are, once again, elite members that sell the idea of support to gather the most money, make a round business to buy from themselves the food needed, making profit from the delivery of such ‘humanitarian aid.’ This is why poverty has not been made part of history already, because poverty has become a way to make business and keep people thinking that it is impossible to eradicate it, which is a lie.

         

        • Feelings are stirred in order to consider becoming more supportive to our fellow neighbor, which should be already an alarm call as to how we have been educated to only care for ourselves and our ‘loved ones’ but don’t yet see, realize and understand that we belong to a whole as the entire Earth and all of humanity that should be equally regarded as our loved ones in order to realize that as long as one individual suffer, we will all suffer. ‘Feeling good’ by giving some form of economic aid, doing ‘humanitarian work’ like wanting to relieve others’ suffering becomes an unsustainable task just because it shouldn’t be work of a few to ensure everyone’s well being, it should be part of the function of the system to ensure all resources, all tools, all education and support is given and made available to everyone to cooperate to the world system’s sustainability- however the opposite occurs: we allow the control of all the resources, we allow the privatization of our basic means to live, we have accepted and allowed education that only serves to cater labor-force for a corrupted system and that is how we end up manufacturing our own consent to abuse, poverty, war, famine and ultimately a dictatorial money system that decides whether we live or die.

         

        • Spiritual leaders speak about The End of Suffering by focusing on positive thinking, praying, hoping, being ‘at peace’ within oneself and essentially doing nothing of actual physical work to change the way the system works – instead people are being conducted to a massive form of complacency and literal crossing of arms and legs in the hopes that our leaders, our governments will do something to ‘stop the pain’ in those that we claim to love. We turn to love, we Feel for the children dying each day, yet most believe that by integrating ‘good intentions for all those that suffer’ in prayers it will make a substantial difference, which it doesn’t at all. Compassion has become a bastardized word to feel ‘bad’ and ‘sad’ about those that suffer to no avail

         

        In Heaven, Everything is Fine–We become aware of the problem, We have to Fund the Solution

         

        • Arts, Literature, Activism and Journalism have played a role to bring us closer to witness the suffering of other individuals due to the multiple problems that are mostly stemming from existing in a system where life is not being equally supported – however as it is said ‘Feelings trump reason and reality’ and as we watch videos like  the ones below edited/created by myself where one can realize the extent of suffering we are absolutely unaware of while living in our perfect lives, having enough money to ensure we have a secure and dignified place to live in peace. However, once the video, the piece of art, the painting, the novels that have attempted to bring us closer to the problem are watched, read and consumed, the lack of factual solutions leave these attempts to create ‘awareness’  in a stack of ‘Humanitarian’ and ‘Human Rights’ supportive material – without conductive solutions, and often leading to counterproductive experiences, such as seeing the problem ‘too big to solve’ without realizing that we have all the means, the power and the will to create the necessary solutions to the following:

        Solution                                                              

        • Human–Unitarianism: Recognizing each other as One and Equal is the way to conceive humanitarianism not as an act of condolence, empathy and compassion but as a factual physical common sensical understanding that we are all living beings coexisting in this same world, this same ecosystem where we all require food, water, shelter, energy, education in order to live in dignity – thus we have to give to each other what we want for ourselves – this goes with accordance with the following Basic Human Right Principle:

         

         
        The Second Fundamental Human Right is that: Each Human Being is Made-up of Substances that is Given Freely by the Earth, so to speak – dust, water, clay, All the Chemicals and All the Parts that Forms the Eventual Physical Body. The Resources on Earth that are Available are also Freely Available. Therefore, All Resources on Earth, Fundamentally, as a Human Right – Belongs to Everyone. It is simply to be Managed in the Best Way to Ensure that Everyone that is on Earth Actually Receives the Support to make it possible to have a Life that is Worthwhile with Dignity and Happiness, in Peace and Harmony. Having Resources Controlled for the Individual Benefit of a Few is Nothing less than a form of Dictatorship and it is Disregarding Basic Human Rights in Every Way Possible. – Bernard Poolman

        • Because the system we live in was not meant to cater for everyone’s needs Equally and ensure no suffering exists, we have to Become the System, to integrate and implement a new economic, social and political system based on Life in Equality that will ensure that there is no need for humanitarian aid/ charities or any other form of temporary help for those in need any more, because we will instead focus on creating and establishing the necessary constitutional reforms to ensure that Equality is recognized at a Constitutional and Global level by virtue of it being a Human Right and be supported with all the necessary means to live in a dignified manner.

         

        • The ‘We’ that encompasses the human race in this world will create the necessary reforms that must be conducted at a world system level through political means, and walk through the process of transition to an Equal World. This means that to change this world charities, feelings and a sense of empathy is only a temporary bridge to become sensitized about other people’s problems, but we cannot leave the solution to be implemented by a few in a temporary manner. The establishment of Human Rights at a Constitutional Level where all beings’ lives are dignified by virtue of existing in an Equal Money Regime will ensure a permanent and sustainable solution to the problems we are facing as humanity – we created them, so we are equally responsible to establish the solutions.

         

        • The Equal Life Foundation will conduct the promotion and establishment of Equal Rights around the Globe as one single organization that will integrate all current humanitarian groups, organizations and initiatives under one single premise: the implementation and recognition of life in Equality at a Constitutional level along with the Equal Money System economic reform to ensure that such Constitutional principles are implemented to All Individuals by virtue of being a Human Being

         

        Rewards                                                              

        • Never again having to feel sorry and/or guilty for witnessing human beings suffer from afar, never again having to make of human suffering the subject of arts, films and our every day news. The shaping of our human nature will be in accordance to the physical and measurable certainty that we will all equally contribute to build and sustain in order to ensure no human being, no animal, plant or Earth Resource is being abused or put to suffer. This means that Not only humans will benefit from this, but also all Animals, Plants and the Earth’s resources as the totality of our home, which is the Earth.

         

         

        • By virtue of collaborating to coexist and cooperate in an Equality System, the real humanitarianism that will emerge is simply the realization and living understanding of treating each other as equals, giving to each other what we want for ourselves enables the actual relationships that make our lives functional which will not require a constant legal regulation or sentimental drive, but mere common sensical understanding of the necessary mutual support to coexist in harmony and peace once that we are all equally satisfied with that which we need to live well.

        358.Human Rights and Equal Money

         

        We have had great statements and bills of rights throughout history declaring that “All human beings are created equal” but, are  any of these documents, constitutions and declarations being implemented in reality? No.

        Is any International Organization taking care of and ensuring that every single being in this world is being granted every basic necessity to live in dignity? No

        Is any International Organization and/or Institution ensuring that all resources of the Earth are being distributed in a equal manner to all individuals? No

        Are there any International Organizations or NGO  supervising that the production processes of our goods are ecologically sustainable and aligned to protocols of highest quality standards with non-polluting mechanisms to ensure that no animals, plants and human beings are harmed in the process of providing  for ourselves  that which we need to live? No

        Many could claim while reading these principles ‘That would be too much to ask’ when all of these aspects should be in fact the very Basic Living Principles we all should direct our lives with, but there is one single reason why we don’t: Money and the desire for some to be inherently given the the most of it over others to keep inequality in place, just because while the majority of the people are hooked on a survival mechanism to barely have enough to eat,  there’s a minority that benefit from being the ‘job providers’ to enable those that have non to earn a bit of money to be able to live, without realizing that it is those in power as the minority that have the control over resources and all other financial institutions at their disposal to live like kings and queens.  This is what we have collectively accepted and allowed

        So it is about time we establish our Basic Living Principles of Equality as Life as Human Rights for the first time at a Global Level  and Not leave this process in the hands of  a few organisms that have proven themselves to be inaccurate to fund and establish Equality as Constitutional Principle in all nations of this world. We as individuals, we as the people of the world are the ones that must take this task at hand, as it is in our best interest that we all support each other to implement the living conditions that will ensure our well being is guarded in Equality to everyone else’s by virtue of being alive.

         

         

        Problem                                                             

         

        • International Organization comprises mechanisms and organisms like the United Nations and International Law which is a collection of international norms, which are enforced via  the United Nations – where such norms and dispositions were supposed to be guiding and directing our lives to a common well being, such as guaranteeing that every individual would have ‘Equal Rights’ – however it’s already been over half a century that these Human Rights have been promulgated and the state of the world is subsumed in far more abusive, violent and exploitative state than the Second World War period in itself. We live in a world where two thirds of the population live in poverty, where 25 thousand children die each day of starvation and preventable diseases, where 1 billion people have No toilets, where children are sold and trafficked for slavery and sexual commerce purposes, where our Education is an indoctrination mechanism to keep everyone bound to a slavery position with capped abilities to in fact have any chance of living in a  dignified manner; poverty has not ceased to exist, CEO’s in companies are earning thousands of times more than the average worker per hour,  our Earth’s resources are being turned into fuel and cash to continue our ‘economic growth’ and ‘elevating’ our lifestyles to an unsustainable rate of destruction, erosion and full blown predation that we have ensued in our world with no remedy on sight, because ‘Money makes the rules of the game,’ and those who made the rules are the ones that ensure no solution is placed for their own interests rely on the abuse of those that are yelling out for help and support – this is the reality we have all accepted and allowed and as such, equally responsible for.

         

        • The creation of the United Nations was intended to establish organization and promote cooperation between nations to minimize the violent conflicts after the Second World War which means establishing peace; but at the same time, they left the allowance of organized armies to be part of the necessary ‘Security’ that is till this day existent as an acceptable form of defense in a world where war is still a means to ‘reactivate’ economy and gain more power over others – yes, no evolution has taken place in our global organization. Apparently the UN would pair up to organize and intervene with the Economic aspect necessary to precisely ensure the enforcement or implementation of the basic Human Rights. However the economical and financial organization  was left to the International Institutions like  IMF, World Bank and others which had Nothing to do with working par en par with the Declaration of Human Rights by the UN. Even if the same countries that funded the UN, the interests of International Organizations have nothing to do with establishing, for example, an economic system based on supporting every individual with sufficient money to live – this has Never been a Human Right Per se.

         

        • The UN’s  Declaration of Human Rights have done nothing to prevent a monetary system of debt and economic models like our current Corporate Capitalist to become the actual dictators of the laws that affect the Land and the lives of every individual in this Planet Earth.

         

        • One of the aspects or mechanisms within International Law has to do with Human Rights and it’s supposed to be the ‘key area’ of it, but just as the UN, its main focus in fact has to do with the law of the sea/ admiralty law which has to do with organizing the commerce and corporate powers at an international level, laws that regulate war and peace and protecting crimes against humanity, however it hasn’t been resolved to identify the monetary system in itself and the banking system as well schemed and internationally accepted crimes against humanity from the moment that having money or not defines whether you live or you die.

         

        • The problem and reality of these organizations and groups of laws is that there is no international agreement to follow the International Laws nor the implementation of these rights is enforced by any means, simply because there is no sovereign to coerce compliance. Unfortunately in our current world and reality, the application of laws and declarations that benefit people have only been possible by coercive mode where sanctions are imposed onto countries when not abiding to this, but the reality is that because there is no money involved in these International Organizations and Orders, it all remains at a diplomatic level with no implementation at all but mere agreement with no practical application.

         

        • The people that suffer the ‘disagreements’ at an economic and political level internationally are the ones that actually have to endure this negligence. We know about these Human Rights organizations at municipal, state and national levels where one can complain about some form of injustice being imposed by our very own governments, corporations or any other public service – however there’s no compromise at a governmental or financial institutions to comply to this declaration to support the implementation of it to ensure that Human Rights are in fact lived in practical living reality as the way business are conducted, social securities are given– these documents have become dead letters because there is no acting to ensure these rights are in fact lived.

         

        • The reality is that that this ‘equal footing’ is impossible to exist between nations and individuals when money dictates a nation’s stance in the international context; this means that if a country is existing in absolute poverty, there is no law that dictates that those that have more wealth give to the poorest ones or support these International Organizations to conduct their aims and mission to have means to implement the basic human rights around the world. But because there is no obligation to it even if the states might shape their behavior in response to these International Laws and Organizations, they will still violate the laws and principles because Money dictates the willingness to trespass these basic agreements to respect life at all levels – instead money rules and money decides to what extent we are wiling to go in order to satisfy the interests of a few in a world of Inequality.

         

        • As long as there are monetary interests in place, it will be close to impossible for nations to abide to the Declaration of Human Rights and any other International Law mechanism if there is no equal-support at an economic level to de facto implement them.

         

         

        Solution                                                              

        • The International System must be reorganized where all non-state actors become also part of the changes in the distribution of power.  All organizations intended to create solutions to all the above mentioned problems will have to unite under the premise of establishing Life in Equality at a Constitutional Level in all Nations/Estates. The International Institutions like the IMF and World Bank must enhance the necessary coordination at an economic level to ensure the integration and recognition of the Declaration of Human Rights and direct the necessary changes in the way the monetary system, the financial and banking systems operate in order to equalize to this new living principle at a Global Level.

         

        • All International Institutions that handle that establish the economic principles at a global level must  provide the necessary means to establish Equality through Money. This will imply the restructuring of our current monetary system to change it from a system of debt to a parity of physical life value where money can exist as the representation of the rights to have access to the necessary means to live and as such,  ensure that through providing Equal Money to all individuals the Equality principle promulgated in all our Constitutions and Human Rights Declaration is in fact applied; this means that the Distribution of Power will have to be Equalized to ensure that States don’t pursue hegemony or forcing compliance of small states to serve the ‘bigger’ ones. The Balance of Power which means an impending tolerance between nations wherein cooperation was defined as alliances to wage war and/or secure some territories to continue the absolute power over others.  It is the Time when History has to be brought to a Halt and instead, give way to Equality as Life as a Principle under which all Nations  and International Organizations will align all trade, migration, social integration, mutually inclusive interests between nations to establish peace, cooperation and the provision of support for all inhabitants in certain nations where support has been neglected throughout time, it is a priority to first support all the nations and people in need and ensure that Equality means obtaining a dignified living condition equal to the best possible and sustainable one already existent in what we have defined as a first world country, that is the Equality as what’s Best for All that we all have to aim with certain corrections and alignments to ensure it is sustainable at all times.

         

        • The process of Globalization benefit the binding and connection between individuals and nations wherein it is not only a mechanical or strategic solidarity that exists between nations and individuals due to  proximity, but also an organic one based on the ability to communicate with great ease nowadays thanks to the internet and other means of communication that are already having political implications. By establishing an International Organization that appeals to the United Nations the implementation of Basic Human Rights through democratic means – we can use the emerging E-Democracy to establish an actual political foundation where all individuals with access to the internet can participate and actively ensure that the distribution of resources necessary to Equalize the Life of Individuals is in fact taking place. This will be supervised and ensured by all of us  the individuals of the world, because as long as we don’t live and integrate the principle and premise which is to establish life in equality, we we will continue to exist in separation and in the verge of collapse – this can’t continue going on as it is now; we have to come together and integrate ourselves with one common goal, that which exists within us all beyond language, tradition, culture, race, gender, preferences, religions, political affiliations –this is about recognizing the necessity that we all have for the basic means to live in a dignified manner. 

         

        To Read more about the Fundamental Basic Human Rights: 

         

        • International Politics and its purpose must be to advance the cause of Equality as Ius Cogens for all individuals in every nation – this implies that the principle of Equality as Life is so fundamental that no convention or custom can violate it.  International Organizations like the UN must now prioritize lifting continents out of poverty to ensure the equal well being of all living beings in this planet, working with and cooperating with governments and the necessary banking and financial institutions to create structures and mechanisms that can be integrated/ adopted  by each nation in order to guarantee basic economic support. This will include the necessary intervention and  regulation of corporations and governments to ensure that all profit made  and taxes gathered by governments are equally destined to support all individuals in the respective nations, as well as directing sufficient support for those that currently have no means to create any form of profit.  This is one aspect in which the governments or any other International Institution must take the role of implementing the necessary measures to create a Global Equal State where Money is equalized as Life.

         

        • The Focus of the implementation of Human Rights must be at a Global Level ensued by all participants of this world that recognize the immediate need to establish a better living condition to everyone on Earth that is currently suffering the draconian measures with which we have accepted and allowed to direct our lives in this world. An International Organization that is not created by specific countries and/or individuals, nor funded by corporations or specific actors that could shape the process of establishing Equal Rights according to the benefit of a few must be established.  The approach to implement Basic Human Rights is Equality as What is Best for All where no preferences and/or mutually exclusive interests  maim the ability to coexist as individuals in One World in Equality which ensures every inhabitant of the planet is being guarded and supported to  with  Equal Money  to have all the food, water, shelter, proper sustenance, education, entertainment as all the freedoms that each individual will be born into by virtue of coming into this Equality Principled World, which is the world where you and I for sure would like to be born into – this is our opportunity to create it.

         

        • Equal Money System exists in  conjunction with the Equal Life Foundation’s principles and proposals, which is the International Organization that will conduct the necessary actions and democratic mechanisms to establish the proposal for Constitutional Equality in every country – we realize that the current events and conditions of this world is demanding that we reclaim the right to life, the right to the Earth’s resources as our own to support all Individuals in Equality.

         

        “The Equal Life Foundation is a Non-Profit Organization that focus on Redefining Human Rights to Result in Rights that Produce, at an Individual Level and a Global Level, a Result that is Best for Every Individual in the World; instead of having Multiple Different Organizations trying to do something, acting like Charities, being Controlled by the People that Donate to them – this is One Organization that Handles All of it and it’s Not a Charity. That means: We are Not Dependent on Donations. It Functions like a Business and is thus Self-Funded to Make Sure that there is No External Corporations that has a Say in Policy, firstly and secondly, because the Human does Not Like Donating unless they ‘Feel Bad’ about something. What we are doing is Producing the Ultimate Good so, You do not Get Donations for the Ultimate Good – and therefore: Donations is virtually Non-Existent within the Equal Life Foundation, with Very Little coming in that format.
        It is a Non-Profit Organization, because it’s Protecting the Income to Not Go to Any Individual, but to Remain Within the Organization so that it can Focus on its Core Intent, its Objective to bring about a Constitutional Human Rights Dispensation that is Best for Everyone on Earth.”

        DAY 362: Human Rights and the Equal Life FoundationBernard Poolman  –

         

        “The majority on Earth actually have the Legitimate Power to Bring about a Constitutional Change in the World in Every Country that will Protect Basic Human Rights in Every Way – that’s through Democracy. By Voting and Establishing Political Parties Based on Constitutional Equality, the Equality that is based on the Fact that All Life is Equal and therefore: there are certain Intrinsic Human Rights that Supports this Equal Life of All that Must be, by Virtue of Birth, as a Birth Right, which is a Human Right – be Available to Everyone.”

        Rewards                                                              

        • The Establishment of an International Organization that is not linked to specific countries in means of sustaining particular preferential powers is an absolute change from our current world order. We will either appeal to the United Nations to adopt the New Declaration of Human Rights created by and through the Equal Life Foundation  and any other organization that wants to join in advocating Equality as Life through the establishment of a new Economic and Political system that ensures the guarantee of each individual’s well being being by the necessary legal and financial mechanisms that we can all be participants of, to never again delegate our rights to a few but instead become active participants to sculpt the society that we all want to live in and leave to our children to come.

         

        • We will cease to accept and allow the existence of the UN as only a control and coercion mechanism over countries as well as maintaining the allowance of wars to enrich the states that conform such organization. We as the people of the world will become one single  International Organization where no country is less than another, where no individual has veto power over others, and where we all will cooperate in funding the equal support required to uplift the lives of all individuals. No financial entities or corporate endowed NGO’s will exist, because everyone that in fact and genuinely support Equality as Life will join the Equal Life Foundation – and the proposal for an Equal Money System to ensure all our lives are guaranteed to be lived in the most optimum manner possible for all.

         

        • This is the first time thus that the creation of a Declaration of Human Rights will be expressed by the people of the world –  not only a nation, not as a form of insurrection or in means of overthrowing the government/ the current people in power, but instead it will serve as a declaration to oblige all nations to agree to support all life equally and to dedicate the efforts and economic support to restore and/or equalize every single being’s live to the best living condition that is possible and sustainable in every country.

         

        • The poor countries, the ‘forgotten ones’ will be the first ones to be supported and given all the necessary labor force and economic force to uplift their lives to a dignified position so that we can all finally realize that it is only when seeing every single person in this world living in the best possible manner that genuine happiness in this world can exist, genuine wellbeing and peace on Earth will reign – it won’t be a magical act of healing, we have to all actively support to establish  the necessary means and methods to create sustainable systems that can be operated by the people to also integrate people to be to create and maintain the new living systems where money will become the surety to our wellbeing and eventually realize that this is all about learning how to Live as Equals, Give as We would Like to Receive, Honor Each Other as the Life that we consist of and learn to live the word Love in fact which is establishing Life in Equality for all in this world and suffer nevermore.

        356. Activism and Equal Money

         

        The best way to promote change in our society is to become it at an individual level by taking responsibility for the system that we all have co-created, which is the same system we will all actively participate to correct and align to establish permanent and sustainable solutions that are best for all in every sphere of or lives. We are conducting this through education and equal participation to eventually  generate the necessary political and financial reforms to implement this in our reality – this is called practivism and this is what Equal Money is all about. 

         

        Continuing:

         

        Problems – Part 2                                         

        Continuing from the Previous entry 355. Activism and Mind Control  – Please read through it in order to get the greater picture of what will be discussed here

         

        • New ways of Activism in our 21st Century are the  Hacktivists and techno savvy anonymous individuals that were also united by a profound sense of Vengeance to use the information networks of the world and create boycotts without realizing that the very power and machines used for their statements, are the same products and energy produced in the entire world system that runs with money. This means that if one was in fact interested in generating solutions, one would not only merely obstruct general operations from taking place in an ordinary manner in cyberspace. It’s rather easy to create disturbances, but the system won’t change without any actual political engagement. Creating systems for e-democracy would be actually relevant to provide means to generate the necessary electoral systems of the future. Halting traffic in certain websites only exacerbates the problems, there are no solutions possible in that.

           

        • We also have the food aid, environmental and animal rights movements which are mostly corporate/elite funded groups in order to maintain the more common forms of activism that have been going on for several decades now, busy with solutions for one single part of the problem, forgetting about the greater picture wherein money and the way it currently exists is in fact the problem. We can learn about new ways to live  in accordance to polluting the least, being busy with animal rights, vegetarianism, buying organic products, trying to boycott mass fishing and saving animals without realizing how the very money used to do all of this is stemming from the very same system and money used to buy food and be paid for jobs to ‘make a living.’ A massive point that is forgotten is how there are millions of people that depend on, for example, the meat industry. Just like with attempts and proposals to go ‘moneyless,’ removing animal consumption from the equation won’t make the world a better place, we will certainly have to look at solutions in the future for that – but at the moment the primary problem is the money system that has become an unsustainable industry in itself.  It is thus to be aware that the lives of others also depend from such ‘hideous activities’ such as killing dolphins for meat,  being pushed to do overfishing due to the over demand that humans are creating in a world where consumption is far from being in accordance to actual physical requirements, in moderation according to natural cycles of the species consumed as food – this is just one example of many wherein as long as money is the force of coercion to dictate how things operate in this world, any effort to change how things operate through resistance and boycotts only deals with the tip of the iceberg.

           

        • We also got the ‘Spiritual Activism’ which is probably not usually considered a ‘movement’ or ‘activism’ per se, which is part of the necessary masking to not be considered as another containment group.  This is  also the least threatening one in terms of ‘social awareness’ and potential world-change movements, since it is mostly composed by people practicing beliefs related to positivity, light and love, esoteric knowledge, Buddhism, New Age prognosis, meditation, ‘spiritual awakenings’ with the use of psychedelic drugs, entheogenic religions, shamanism, artistic movements promoting visions of an all enlightened future world while doing nothing to actually create it other than imagining it or feeling a good experience of people gathering ‘vibrations’ to change. This group corresponds to the evolution of religious groups and hippie movements from the 60’s that have adopted new means to propose peace and love while surrendering to the reality ‘as is’ without any proposals or intentions to change it other than through positive thinking and prayer. There are many books, documentaries and spiritual leaders directing these movements wherein it is expected that world change will come from the individual transformation of consciousness/ spiritual awakening which means that anything having to do with understanding how the system operates, the necessary changes required to create a better world system for everyone are simply absolutely ignored or ‘let to be’ while focusing on the individual cultivation of feel good experiences that are another self-induced form of mind control that obviously becomes a market in itself.

         

        • It is important to become aware of these groups that are not openly ‘activists’ but function with a similar agenda to what the intent of this blog is presenting: media endorsed and internet viral documentaries and movements that are intended to generate solutions outside of any form of political and legal means to implement them.It is just another way to entertain the masses to not challenge, not question and not even attempt to create an informed group of people with the deliberate purpose to create a political party, because the leaders of these movements claim that going in the route of politics is old fashioned/ of the past and futile – and so, the followers comply to it, not questioning these statements any further because the machinery is seen as ‘too big’ to disentangle, which is why they opt to ‘get off the gird’ and become ‘self sufficient’ with small communities that can apparently live ‘off the system,’ while ignoring that there are no such thing as ‘out of the system’ as well as there being no such thing as ‘living without money,’ because money has become the very symbol with which we obtain life and even if one claim to live without money, as long as the rest of the world is still dependent on money, one will still be part of such system,  because we are not separate individuals from the whole. We are one and the same organism responsible and participant of every single thing that exists in this world, and that implies that there is no actual way to ‘escape the system’ at all, not even at death. This is how we have stated  many times before:  Activism is Futile

         

        • Back to the thesis of this blog: is it that the current ‘Activism’ that exists is a well engineered and target-driven mass-control movements divided in various factions that appeal to different types of people in order to lead these emergent groups of revolutionary ideas for change to remain in an absolute self-experience of ‘doing something’ and ‘being moving forward’ to some type of change that will somehow emerge with either  technological advancements or doing some supportive environmental solutions here and there, while creating plans to live ‘off the grid,’ but really: are these the type of movements that will ensure that every single human being is living in the best living condition, being established in a legitimate new economic and political model that supports the lives of those in absolute and immediate need, as well as ensuring those ‘at the top’ are not fed any further than they have been already? No, they are not and this is why Activism Is a Problem in itself that is keeping millions of people that can be well educated about ‘the truth of the system,’ but are using this ‘truth’ to generate groups of people far from being organized and emerging as a new political movement that will surely beat the 1% if mathematics were applied in common sense to establish a new legal political system based on the longed equality proposed by the ‘99%’ that every movement is talking about –  but in reality there’s still much to be seen in case they are actual sources for permanent and viable solutions.

         

         

        • Any activism that is not promoting changing the individual nature of the human, changing and reforming the monetary, political and social structures, that is not questioning every single bit of information, history and self-belief that we have of ourselves is then only part of the necessary ‘entertainment’ to keep people away from forming actual political parties that could definitely threaten ‘the 1%’ that is believed to be so absolutely mighty to be perpetuated by a minority apparently voting to keep things as they are. We are aware that there is a lot more to go to open their eyes and realize the great fallacy that exists in all our ‘world order.’ Education is not just composed of sharing information on how the greatest forms of control exist, but it is also to provide the means and ways to create viable, sustainable, and reliable solutions that are individually applicable and are as easy as living our lives with a set of new principles  and directive decisions to no longer be brainwashed or emotionally motivated to ‘ask for change’ or ‘create solutions’ that fundamentally oppose the current system by non-legal and non-political means.

         

        So, if Activism is Not the Solution – then what is?

         

        Solution                                                             

        • Equal Money is not only an online community and movement that promotes solutions to the world in order to establish a new global system of Equality. We are individuals that study the ways in which the mind operates and work with ourselves, individually, to understand and trace the patterns in which we have contributed to the creation and maintenance of the current system based on our individual participation in it. We also educate ourselves about the history and functionality of the world system, however we go one step further to understand the history of existence, the blueprint of this world system as its original encompassing enslavement system that was invisible to our human eyes and has now been explained and exposed through the Desteni Material in order to understand the nature of the solutions that must be directed in order to create an actual sustainable change in our reality.

         

        • We understand that knowledge and information, money and education have been tools for our own enslavement, however it is also the structure upon which our entire lives depend upon. This is how we propose the study and understanding of the world system in order to be able to restructure it, redefine it instead of eradicating it. This entails that it is not about blaming the individuals that played their role but instead becoming the very people that can stand within the system to generate the necessary changes in politics, businesses and corporations, education, etc.  It is about recognizing everyone’s responsibility for the creation of this system wherein we have all occupied positions according to a ‘greater plan’ of absolute enslavement and polarization of society in means of creating and perpetuating structures of power and control  to the benefit of a minority over the majority of the population throughout our cyclical history.

         

        • We also understand that the systems are not the problems themselves only, but the mind in which we are creating and recreating these patterns that sustain them, that substantiate them, which means that no activism is in fact supporting actual changes because no activism is taking on human nature as its main point of focus to begin establishing solutions, which is what we have committed ourselves to in the first place at the Equal Money System organization. This is lived and applied through an individual process of Self Correction through Self Forgiveness which entails writing, developing Common Sense, developing Self-Honesty, Self Integrity, Self Responsibility, Self Will and a selfless determination to establish ourselves as the very pillars that demonstrate the ability to change our nature, what we have accepted and allowed, take responsibility for ourselves and this world system and create solutions with and from what is already here as our creation. We call this Practivism, which is practically applying the understanding of the world system in our own lives to stop our own accepted and allowed Mind Control and direct ourselves individually to start thinking in terms of collective well being, what is best for all instead of individual benefits and preferences that always end up creating rifts and problems in activist movements when a greater principle is not in fact the guiding and binding force between individuals.

         

        • Only in Equality can we thrive and that is how in Equal Money there are no leaders and no master plans other than the establishment of a principle based on a decision in common sense realization that the more we wait to move ourselves to create solutions, the more suffering accumulates in this world. We are thus an organization, an online community that gathers within the premise of Self Education to become better human beings, to learn how to Deconstruct the Root of all Evil within ourselves and as such learn how to become and embody the solution in this world.

         

        • We provide assistance and support through our Forums listed below  to every person that decides to walk the path of integrity to become the solution to this world. All the written documents, interviews and recorded material that we publish is part of the educational resources wherein through our own process of self investigation, we go establishing directives that every other individual can read and learn how it is that it’s possible to establish common sense living behavior with the understanding that the change in this world must emerge with and within the individual first. The more people understand the necessity of Equal Money and its establishment as the best solution to the problems we have created in this world, the easier and faster a transition to an Equality system will become. Yet, the problem within this all is that we are testing every single day the high level of mind control that exists in individuals, which prevents the ability to realize how it is that any form of apparent revolution, activism, protest, cyber attacks, boycotts are merely highly emotional-driven organizations with no concrete plans of action to generate sustainable, reliable and legitimate solutions – hence the present pair of blogs were created with the sheer intention to inform, to open a perspective that might not be widely seen and realized at first sight, which entails that just as we were following our happiness in the middle of the 20th century and up to now without a question, the same is going on with activism movements that propose great changes without practically considering self change at an individual level first. We reiterate that the problem is the human being, not the environment which is only the reflection of our own mind and nature.

         

         

        The way we live activism is through sharing our own writings that can be found in the following links:

        These are the places where everyone can also join in to start walking the individual process of self-change  – we provide further educational courses and material in the following links:
         

         

        Reward                                                               

        • Any form of activism will eventually cease to exist in Equal Money Capitalism and Equal Money system since its reason for existing will no longer be required in a world where everything functions according to the best way that we can possibly live in. Instead Activism will become an integral participatory behavior in society where we ensure that all systems and organizations are running according to principles and guarding the best interest of all at all times.

         

        • No more confrontations between people and authorities, no more chaos in cities with people blocking streets, no more people living in parks in means of protest, no more hunger strikes, no more threats in cyberspace, no more collision of interests and segregation in society based on ‘how’ to solve problems because we have come to understand that when it comes to establishing a system that is functional for everyone in this world, we have to base our solutions on mathematical facts and equations wherein every single aspect of our existence is taken care of and managed in ways in which we can all testify and agree are the best possible ones. Thus, we will all exist as active individuals that are constantly aware of the optimal functioning of our world systems, as well as continuing to educate ourselves to better our ability to coexist in the best manner possible.

          This is where we recognize that our lives are in our hands and it all depends on ourselves and our ability to stand as self responsible beings to never again be coerced to remain idle and not change the world, because once we understand our limitations we will all ensure it never happens again.

        315. Rights and Equal Money Capitalism

        The Right to Life in Equality has never existed, no matter how many constitutions hold the statement “All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights” we haven’t ever lived as such- WHY and HOW did we get ourselves to this compromised and abusive position? For context, suggest reading:

         

        Problem                                                                          

         

        From capitalism.org website:

        What is the fundamental right?

        There is only one fundamental right — the right to life — from which all other rights, including the right to liberty, the right to property and the right to pursue one’s own happiness derive.

        Are rights guarantees to the success of actions?

        All rights are rights to freedom of action. That is, the right to those actions necessary to support ones life — so long as they do not violate the rights of others. Keep in mind that rights are not guarantees that those actions will always be successful. Thus, the right to pursue happiness, does not necessarily mean achievement — it only means one is free to pursue what one thinks will make one happy.

        Pursuit does not mean attainment, though it is a necessary precondition to attaining it. Similarly the right to life, is the right to take those actions necessary to survive, free from the physical compulsion and interference of other men. The right to life does not mean that one can force others to support ones life against their will. [what rights do guarantee is that if your actions are successful, no one may rob your of the results of those actions].

         

        We are well aware this is stemming from the old mindset of our lives existing within a constant need to defend and offense from rivals and enemies, an eternal battle that doesn’t only take place between nations, but also between neighbors. This is the platform, the set-up, the ‘default’ explanation of ‘how things are, how things have always been’ wherein one has to‘defend one’s rights/sovereignty at all cost,’ which is not only a Capitalist trait but relative to Politics and Imperialistic tactics throughout human civilization. What has happened in the 20th century is that, these ‘Rights’ were covered with new concepts like ‘Self-Determination’ ‘Freedom,’ ‘Pursuit of Happiness’ that we’ve already explained and democracy used as a noble reason to intervene in foreign countries’ struggles in order to implement a ‘better way of living’ that is tainted by the concepts highlighted above, which is nothing else but an actual form of imperialism for profitable means disguised with a banner of liberty, justice and free will. This is Ayn Rand’s legacy that could excuse the individual’s ‘right to pursue happiness’ at all cost, while keeping the words set in such a way that it truly sounds fair and just, but never specifies it will be possible for All in Equality. This is what we have accepted and allowed thus as an individual or tunnel-vision sight of our reality where dog eats dog as long as ‘I’ can defend my right to WIN.

         

        What is it really being defended here as a ‘Right’ in our Capitalist System?

        Self Interest as the right to abuse, extort, kill, oppress, exploit and dominate in the name of Power

        You can read the previous entries to understand the power that forges our current ‘Rights’ within the current Capitalistic System we’re living in, which certainly overrides any constitutional effort to regulate people’s lives toward a common well being, no matter how many ‘Human Rights’ declarations we have, the world hasn’t changed at all, but gotten worse – why? Because there’s money / self interest in the way of Equality.

         

        According to the definitions of ‘Rights’ we can then assume that it is our right to kill other people in the name of our freedom. There is this motto by one of our Presidents here in Mexico that reads “Respect for the Rights of Others is Peace’ – Benito Juárez – But do we even know what such rights are?

        So if a person that has the current ‘understanding’ of them having the right to kill, to pursue their happiness at all cost, to use any means possible to have more than the other, to cheat, to lie and deceive in the name of their goal – which is happiness, money, power –then one is supposed to ‘respect their right’ and cross our arms and hope to die? This is precisely what’s missed when taking Words for granted, we don’t measure the actual Meaning of them and instead, we adopt such statements as ‘maxims’ because they sound right. Big mistake.

         

        I share my personal experience with the concept of ‘Rights.’ I was very interested in Human Rights since I was probably in 1st grade of primary school, I went to vote for ‘Children’s Rights’ and the whole idea sounded great, I felt proud of myself for learning the children’s rights and being able to ‘have a say’ in such child-participation in some general elections at the time here. But obviously, as I went growing up I realized the world was not moving according to the Words in our Constitution. It was futile to learn our 117 articles in this Country where the very first statement of Equality is violated the moment I step out of the school and see a child my age asking for change to eat. I became disenchanted by the rights I was supposed to ‘hold at heart’ as my Individual Guarantees.  Only much later and fairly recently in my life did I become aware how these ‘rights’ were turned into the ability to own, buy, be happy, seek for my own desires and nevermind the violation of the majority’s rights, I stopped caring or at least being somewhat enthusiastic about ethics and laws, everything sounded too right in words, but reality told another story.

        This is the first encounter with reality, first 10 years of my life and I already knew I could no trust the government, the constitution, the police, the banks, the clergy, I still held somewhat faith on a god or teachers and my personal role models, but none of them offered a solution as to Why People are NOT being supported Equally in this world. Then, as I grew up, I stopped caring and like many people in our current society: we simply gave up any change and instead, allowed ourselves to ride the hedonist trip of ‘Free will’ and ‘Free choice’ and Rebelling against the system, which I have described in the following blogs here along with the process wherein we take Self Responsibility and realize how we are all collectively responsible for shaping our current reality ‘as is.’

        Why have we even allowed Lack of Money to be a regular condition in this world?
        Why have we never questioned poverty and ‘depressions’ as an actual disease that must be cured at the root/ source of the problem, which in all cases is the current monetary system?
        Why have we only managed to ‘mitigate’ the problems that affect us ALL and Con.Form to what is presented as temporary solutions to a lack of money – such as further Debt that sounds like Death wherein you end up rolling on your payroll like a shroud wherein all that is left of you is a piece of flesh and bones that forgot about itself and always sought life, but never lived.

        211. Why is Life a Struggle? Why Can’t All be just HAPPY?

         

        • Equality has Not been Lived:
        Equality
        Within our current socioeconomic and political system, Life is not valued as a Right, but something each one has to ‘earn’, and within that it has become a privilege. Money has become the medium through which one is able to access those goods and services that ensure one’s subsistence. One’s ‘Right to Life’ is not a given, but restricted to those who have money. This way of doing things within the current world system is reflective of what we value as a society, which indicates that money is valued over Life.
        Many religions and ideologies promote the concept of Equality but have so far failed to bring the point of Equality to a level of practical implementation that can be lived by, where the concept of Equality merely remains in the realm of the abstract and ‘theory’.

        Solution                                                                         :

        Within the consideration that Might Makes Right and the Solution to this that is Equality Makes Right, the right to have Equal ability to live in dignity and seek for an actual purpose in life that is not defined by the accumulation of wealth, competing towards another to be ‘more powerful’ or measuring ourselves according to the amount of money we own. It is about Valuing Life as Who and what we All Are, and within this, acting in Self Responsibility according to our participation within the same system, the same ecosystem, the same world-system wherein we must ensure that Everyone is In Fact considered and granted their Equality through the Power that Money will Represent in Equal Money Capitalism, this is the Value of Life made money and granted as an individual guarantee for every single person that is willing to give to others what they want for themselves.

        This is real self determination –not the ability to buy that which makes you happy.

         

          Constitutional Equality
          The fundamental point of Life on Earth within a democracy is going to be protected by a Constitution of what is Best for All. Any policy, law or rule must therefore be made within the framework of Constitutional Equality and be aligned to the Principle of What is Best for All. The Principle of What is Best for All implies several other Principles:
        • Honoring the Right to Life
        • Prevention is the Best Cure
        • Equality
        • Do Unto Another as You Would Like to Be Done Unto

         

        Equality

         

        Within an Equal Money System, the point of having ‘equal money’ is to assist with the psychological harmonization of the human into a harmonious character that no longer lives in fear of his own survival, but lives as Life, gives as Life and receives as Life – equally.
        Since we’ve allowed ourselves to invest value into the concept of money, we use money, and more specifically ‘equal money’ as an interim step within the Equality Principle and the Equality Constitutional Development to bring about a psychological re-connection: through distributing money equally, we are “equally distributing value” through what money represents.
        This is only a temporary point to rectify the psychological damage that has been done by money and our ideas of money, debt, power, choice, fairness, etc. Once this point of psychological disharmony has been corrected, money as a concept in itself will disappear completely as it will have lost all relevance.

        Rewards                                                                            :

        The Right to Life as an Individual and Collective Guarantee implies Self Responsibility understood within the physical and biological terms this implies: we all participate in this world, by us being equally supported to live in the best way possible, we will equally create a world worth living in, a place where children can be born with an assured living condition of harmony and peace – it is what we have always wanted, the best for ourselves, the best lifestyle anyone would have always wanted but always thought we could only ‘get’ by ‘striving for it.’ It won’t be like that any longer.

        There will thus be only One Law, as the Rule of Law as the Constitution based on Equality and what is Best for All Life. All other guidelines will be in the form of policy and regulation, which will be required to be laid out within the utmost specificity. Within adhering to specificity and clarity to the utmost level, no space is left for the interpretation of law or policy. If at any stage it turns out that a door for interpretation was left open, this would indicate that the law or policy is not good enough and will have to be specified to close the gap. As such, there will no longer be a need for lawyers as ‘experts’ on law or courts for the purpose of interpreting the law. Education within the Equal Money System will provide everyone with the necessary reading skills to be able to effectively read and assess laws and policies for one self – at the level that it should be assessed, so all can be on an equal ground of understanding and clarity.

        313: Good, Evil and Power

        What is good and evil can be shaped according to the morals imposed by the governing power. We can’t trust knowledge to decide what’s best for all, and this is an example of how words can be twisted to justify wars in the name of ‘Saving People’s lives from Evil.’  This is a bit of context in order to get to understand where ‘Rights’ come from as a form of Righteousness that defines what is ‘good’ and ‘bad’ what is ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ to pursue in one’s living condition.

         

        Problem:                                                                      

         

        Before we begin to disclose what ‘Rights’ are, let’s look at the basic mindset of ‘Good and Evil’ and the role it plays in our current political dispositions.

         

        What is Good and What is Evil?

        The difference resides in the morality from which both ‘good and evil’ stem from, wherein according to a particular faction or dominant ideology, the individuals will ‘make up their minds’ about what is good and what is evil wherein personal benefits at an individual level or state interests at a system level are guarded, secured and defended. This means that because it is knowledge, it is a mind creation that when it is lived out, it can cause either beneficial outcomes or harm and abuse, just as any word we live out.

        Evil is the real Human Nature as the Reverse of Live, that’s the simplest way to describe it, and Good is that which should be Best for All, but Good is not lived as such holistic determination, but instead shaped according to morals of what benefits the individual’s interests without considering such ‘good’ being a common denominator for All participants, due to, once again, knowledge and information as ideologies, idiosyncrasies, religion, culture, etc. All of that which separates the individual from physical considerations of what best for all in fact means, for example an economic system where every person can be regarded with having such right to pursue happiness in Equality, where no one is left out of such unconditional support as part of our Self-Responsibility by virtue of existing Here.

        An empirical example is how for Americans it can be a ‘good call’  to wage war on terror, to justify going after potential terrorists or anti-democratic regimes with the banner of installing democracy and universal human rights, which are only a consideration according to what’s good for them and openly disguising imperialistic tactics justified by the ‘Salvation of Foreigners’ which then sounds like a Good thing for people in America to support war and their troops abroad: the invasion is then seen as Benevolent, people will accept war as a means for GOOD and a Benevolent act to ‘Free people from Evil Regimes/dictators’ while using war to do so. This is how  knowledge and information is used to adapt and warp people’s interests to think and believe that it is in their best interest that their military force wages war against ‘regimes’ or potential terrorists that threaten their own security, which is why war is then seen as a ‘defense,’ without realizing that such wars happen to have more civilian casualties, destruction and abuse than any actual defense from an apparent malevolent sovereign or terrorist.

        However if we see it from the side of people in Iraq and Afghanistan, what Americans are doing is Evil because they are simply killing their people in order to obtain their territory and resources for further accumulation of power on their side. This is thus how the same act becomes Evil when seen from ‘the others side’ of the coin. However it is the same coin.

        The consequences are very real. People dying is the result of countries seeking to broaden their range of influence over other countries to ensure their ability to have power over the territory for economic reasons such as the extraction and siphoning of resources, territorial military purposes, strategic geographic for further military campaigns, etc. It is Imperialism and this is the same mechanism being used by Corporations in our current Capitalist system as well, in the name of progress or further ‘economic renewal’ wherein in the desire for ‘good sales’ and positive numbers in economy, the lives of people that have to work as slaves with a miserable income have to ‘pay the price’ that will make another smile when seeing such a ‘good quality product at such a low price.’ At the eyes of the consumer it is ‘good’ to have affordable items, at the eyes of the worker it is evil to get such an unfair pay for their work. Obviously common sense is that such ‘progress’ is in fact Evil as it is not taking into consideration the lives of Human Beings, but only numbers, sales, and maximizing profit.

        Evil is then the manufacturing of actual harm and abuse justified by mind-created needs that seek to obtain ‘power’ through abusing, violating, killing, extorting. And Good has become a way to distort such actual reasons and justifications with labels like ‘liberty’ and ‘justice’ and ‘democracy,’ so that the same actions are justified in the name of the ‘greater well being’ of a country’s populace. However it must be understood as an actual Imperialistic tactic, which is how our system has been funded upon.

         

        Solution                                                                            :

        What matters is not what can be defined as Evil or Good within our current configuration wherein we’re trapped in loopholes of cultures, traditions, ideologies, religions, languages that are the representation of us seeing more differences within who we are as the mind than common grounds based on physical aspects of who we are as humans, as physical beings living in  a physical world with equal needs. Thus, what matters are the Actions –  how words are Lived-  and not to get caught in morals of ‘right and wrong’ and ‘good and evil’ since I’ve just explained how this can be twisted to suit personal interests. That’s what knowledge does, and that’s why it is an instrument of power that has been used  to abuse, extort and control rather than establishing any common sense, otherwise we would have already transcended such polarization that is existent in every single aspect of our current living reality.

         

        Evil is the reverse of life, which is what we as human beings currently exist as since it’s the foundation of the mind that creates knowledge and information to justify its insulate means of requiring friction and conflict to exist. For that we require to dissolve morality on focus on prevention and consequence of what causes common well being and what will disrupt it.

         

         

        Rewards:                                                                        

        Focusing on the physicality, what is best for all is the way to ensure we stop being ridden by morals as knowledge and information to make up our mind about what is best for all, and instead, ensure we establish practical ways to always act, think and speak in the best interest of all life forms, that’s our responsibility as part of this society and ecosystem until good is what’s best for all – and I mean ALL as Equals in fact.

        What’s Best for all can only create a single outcome, real living enjoyment in Equality.

        307. CapitalismUS: Pursuit of Happiness

        What does Capitalism and the United States Declaration of Independence have in common?
        “Capitalism is the progressive ideal, because it is the only social system that leaves man free to pursue — and achieve — his own happiness.”

        – capitalism.org

         

        “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

        United States Declaration of Independence

         

         

        What Happened to Liberty, Fraternity and Equality? or Unity in such case?

        Pursuit of Happiness was included by Thomas Jefferson and some claim he removed ‘state’ – which was John Locke’s original statement –  others claim  he took out ‘private property’ in order to include this maxim that shaped the mentality of the American Nationalism that has supported an indiscriminate invasive agenda toward every other country in the world in order to establish Democracies while wearing a badge of Liberty and Justice. Well, these are just words that have essentially been the base foundation for Capitalism becoming a political meaning, a way of living more than just a way to trade and regulate living resources/ life on Earth.  This means that words like Democracy ceased to exist as an actual ‘Power of the people’ and became the ability to Buy Your Freedom and Pursue your Self Interest,  wherein according to the amount of money you have, you’ll be able to secure your place among the beautiful people with a great amount of money and benefits that are guarded and backed at a Constitutional level that stands as the frequently recurred sourced of defense in order to exert free will, free choice and free speech that more often than not kill, harm, extort or abuse more than exerting any honorable living principle that could make a real man ‘free.’

         

        The trick here is placing ‘pursuit’ before Happiness. Why is it not a readily given convenience and experience for all living beings? Oh because that would make the game just too boring for those that enjoyed keeping everyone entertained within this social-ascension process, just like it happened in heaven with the whole ascension enslavement that turned out to be nothing more but a sick game by those that were wanting to keep everyone focused on achieving the unattainable. And on Earth, if some did experience such well being, it was mostly part of the greater scheme of which these fortunate ones weren’t either aware of. A great life of massive proportions has become our own yoke or joke, whichever makes the most sense to you.

         

         

        So Happiness and Freedom were the meaning of having no cap, no control from ‘external forces’ i.e. government over your own self interest – and this is how our free markets exist without any form of regulation by father government or mother law, because corporations are able to stand as their own moral entities that pursue their own happiness and promote it through the very same weapons of free speech, free will, self determination to create needs and desires in people to become addicted to buying their products, oh  and your very well used Democracy word to give the political righteous power to the people to equally pursue the same as you, but never allowing them to know that it was a rigged game from the get-go.

         

        This is the ‘noble endeavor’ that a Nation like America took in order to justify wars in order to protect such freedom and security as well as ‘eradicating evil’ in the form of ‘terrorism.’ Right, we are all aware that is absolutely disputable when the casualties of war were mostly civilians whose nation was simply abducted by a righteous concept of liberation and democracy, which is nowhere to be found in such places.

         

        We have become prisoners by our own words and concepts, our own brainwashing wherein we react to a word like Equality but defend with pride the right to kill in the name of one’s ‘freedom’ and ‘justice.’

        Brilliant Self-Enslavement.

         

        The Malady of the Mind Made Economic System

         

        “Capitalism is the ethical ideal, because it is the only social system that leaves man free to be moral — to live by the use of his own mind.” – capitalism.org

         

        So, once that we have the premise of ‘freedom’ and ‘happiness’  we have the individualized exertion that satisfies one’s own mind. Here is where our investigation takes place, because we understand what the mind is as an energy-based consciousness system that is in essence a parasitical entity that we’ve separated ourselves from and into, which functions precisely on all of these concepts on freedom, self determination, individual self interest, the right to ‘do whatever it takes to get what you want’ and within such possessed nature of being, we have disregarded each other as equals, we stopped caring who we would have to step onto, leave out of the game in the name of one’s own benefit, we became autocratic and (de)generated various entities as words to exert this ‘living modality’ and make it a ‘collective’ decision, such as what capitalism implies which is the actual malady of the mind made an economic system.

         

         

        So, why have we been Redefining Capitalism? Because we cannot trust a single word or concept that comes from the past conception of ourselves in this reality where every single word implies a monetary value such as we’ve realized in our series of ‘Redefining Capitalism’ in this blog in the past series of entries that I will leave below for further reference. I realize that it is vital to redefine word by word so that we don’t commit the same mistakes again of generating laws and rights and sign them off as these nice sounding words that have no practical and sustainable ways to be achieved. 

         

        The locks of our reality exist in the words we use to define the way we live and interact with each other, the social contracts, and the current words we have as our constitutions stem from the Enlightenment era (no pun intended John Locke’s ideas) which should already be pondered on whether such ‘wisdom’ is applicable to a human that is certainly not the same as the one two hundred years ago.

         

        As we go redefining the very concepts that we have enslaved ourselves with and by, a new way of understanding reality shall emerge through us integrating these new meanings and use them as a certainty of an outcome that is inexorable in common sense, only our own self interest could prevent it from happening, so that is our responsibility to stop.

         

        Pursuit of Happiness Redefined

        What would the Pursuit of Happiness can be redefined as? Simple, the convenience of living as Equals in a world like ours where no one would be left out from being born with support to live wherein happiness is not pursued any longer, but lived as an inherent quality of well being created and sustained by all participants in society. We can truly then say that we make each other happy.

         

        I suggest reading the following blogs for further context about ‘words’, so that we can continue with looking at concepts: several words creating a meaning that stands as a piece of accepted and allowed experience, action or denomination that becomes part of who we are as our reality.
