Money is our creation, our Image and Likeness – Can we only ‘Burn it’ and pretend we don’t have to Face the damage we’ve done and imposed with it? No, it will only come back to bite us back since we haven’t Understood that it is Not Money in itself that is the problem, it is Our Nature, Our Self Interest engraved in a Value system where Life has never considered Equal – let’s face the consequences and redefine Money to become a Tool that is used to Give and Receive in Equality as what’s Best for All.

Changing the System can only happen through understanding the Nature of the Problem and Taking Self Responsibility for it. This means that we have to correct, align and redefine the relationships we have formed in Separation of Ourselves as Equals through Money. Transcending the role that Money currently has in our day to day living won’t be a ‘quitting’ or ‘delete’ process wherein we can suddenly all realize that Money has been a Belief System no different to any other Value-Imposition upon this world and that we can in fact all Learn how to Give and Receive in Equality – but Unfortunately, we cannot trust ourselves to act in the best interest of all when our minds are conditioned to Always seek for the point of self interest that Ensures one is always only looking after One’s Self Interest. it is no different to learning a new language or adopting a new ‘way of living’ wherein the way that we conceive reality is determined by a new set of principles that lead us to change the way we think, speak, behave and interact with one another. This is the Process that we realize we have to walk in order to Equalize ourselves to our Creation, and Money is and has been one of those creations that became a Weapon of Choice instead of a Tool to Give and Receive what is Best for All.
We are born into the system of values where everyone’s Right to Life is conditioned through Money. Money is a Value System that is currently standing as the representation of the relationships of abuse that we have generated throughout time in order to satisfy our individual needs to have More and accumulate wealth in means of power and security. Hence, Money is the Symbol of Power imposed onto the physical reality that exists as Equality and Oneness – Power here is to be understood as the Meaning, the Value created as a System through the use of Money.
This is thus the representation of the hierarchical systems we have created and shaped our societies with, our money system, our political systems, our educational systems, our personal preferences – everything is a configuration, a Characterization of Life that is ‘available’ to us according to the environment that we’re born into. An example is how people’s values in a community existing in absolute poverty will vary to a society where food, water, electricity, health care,housing is taken for granted and ‘More’ is sought as a means of satisfaction, whereas in the poor community, all of these services would be seen as the ‘Greatest’ things to have and use in means of having a dignified living – what separates both groups of people? Money. There is no dissociation from our ability to Live from Money. Thus if Money is the Problem, Money must be the Solution.
The way I realized this point for myself in terms of Equal Money is having a clear understanding of what Equal means and what Money means – for that you can refer to the following blog entries:
Money is like a spoiled child that we gave birth to, it is the mirror of our image and likeness with all our traits and learned ways to deceive, manipulate, segregate, define according to a hierarchical structure while maintaining it and fueling it with having everything and everyone being defined as ‘who they are’ according to Money. One can look at one’s self-definition meaning the ‘who you are’ in relation to money: where you live, what you eat, what you like and dislike, your education, vocabulary, clothes, house, skills, values, beliefs is all determined by money.
Thus, we cannot just ‘get rid of our creation’ just yet and pretend that it never happened. That image of ‘burning money’ at the end of the first Zeitgeist movie is no different to the historical processes of ‘burning the idols’ or ‘burning books’ that contained a set of values that we simply did not want to take responsibility for and help correct and align to a best for all outcome – we can’t just ‘Burn things’ and pretend that it was never there, and this is just a metaphorical way to explain how we Cannot get rid of money and believe that everyone will magically understand what the function of money was originally for and to what extent it devolved into what we currently have, which is nothing else but a super-aggrandized god with almighty and omnipresent powers that We, each one of us Created in our minds, we accepted it as a belief system wherein its ‘true power’ is the ability to hand in money and get what we need – no different to ‘holding a gun’ and being able to obtain what we want from the shop.
The same goes for the imperative need to work in order to live: if you have no money, you starve and don’t have the ‘same choices in life’ that a wealthy person has – yet, through our physical eyes we can see both are physical human beings that require the same to Live. Why have we made of Money this enslavement tool instead of granting each other our so-longed Right to Freedom and Free Choice?
The ‘transcendence’ of money is in essence a process of Self Responsibility, it cannot be ‘transcended’ without first understanding How we created Money, Why and How we can practically change its meaning and purpose to align it to be and become a tool that is Best for All. Thus, we will have to walk with the child a process of Self Honesty and Self Forgiveness to take Responsibility for the values, the ways, the characters, the behaviors and deliriums of Power that we imposed onto each other through the use of Money. This Child is in fact Ourselves, and this is why we realize that we can’t just ‘get rid of money’ because the problem is Not Money in itself, but the Mind, the Human Mind behind it that created it as the image and likeness of the Old Values that we have accepted and allowed without a question in our society.
Day 195 – Moneyless Societies and Equal Money Capitalism
So even if you throw away the concept of money and work with a ‘resource based society’ – you will still require a system of distribution to ensure that everyone receives the resources they require to live a dignified life. Making a jump from a money-based society to a money-less society is a big one. That is why within both Equal Money Capitalism and Equal Money we still use ‘money’ – but where money is reduced to only having a numerical/accounting function to track, monitor, distribute and account for the production and distribution of resources.
Thus again, this is a process of Education, taking responsibility for the Value System created through our Monetary Systems with which we are currently perceiving and understanding reality as something to ‘earn’ and something to ‘fight for’ or secure, just because we haven’t granted each other the right to life in Equality.
The ability to understand step by step how we created the problem that we currently face in our reality will be an absolute gift to ourselves to pattern the problem and ensure we never again commit the same mistakes. This is a preventive point that becomes a Reward as an insurance that guarantees we all understand why Equality is the only way to Coexist in Peace and Harmony and Why it is that we require to Take Self Responsibility for Our Creation.
The outcome of this Process of Self Education and Self Responsibility for our current Value System as Money will result in the creation of Relationships where we are able to Trust Each other as Equals, we will be able to stop competition, survivalism, depressions, drug addictions, betrayals, deception, coercion, crimes, corruption and even mental disorders caused by our inability to work and coexist in equality – it will be a necessary healing process to later on realize that we might not need Equal Money at the end, since the problem was Not Money in itself, but the relationships, concepts and values that caused its existence to be that of a weapon to control and segregate. Money is Our Creation – We Take Self Responsibility for it at Equal Money
