Day 365: Conditioning Self-Expression

Today I took some time to direct a couple of my material belongings that had been put in storage. I approached the project with the starting point that I had to make a decision for each of my belongings as to what was going to happen to it – what purpose it was going to have for the future to come. The things which I had not used in a couple of years I decided to give away – this group of things included a saxophone and a electric drum set. The underlying principle I applied was simple, with me these possessions were not used to their full potential, and by giving them away to someone that would actually use them, that would support fulfilling both the recipients expression and the instruments potential; in other words – giving the instruments away would be what is best for all.

However, and here is where it starts to get interesting, as I had made the decision to give away the instruments, I began to have second thoughts, and the backchat that moved within me was something along the following lines: ‘What if I will miss these instruments? I might want to play them at a later stage, and then I will not have them! Man, before when I was a bit younger, I played a lot of music, now I do not anymore, I really miss that’. Thus, my initial backchat was initiated by a fear of loss, and then my mind moved to how I miss playing instruments and having music as a part of my life – that latter part of the backchat as well motivated by a fear – a fear that I had lost these expressions of myself which I had accessed when I was younger as part of playing my instruments and devoting myself to music.

The experience took me by surprise, because I had seen that I was finished with these instruments, that I had used them and that I was satisfied with what I had expressed and achieved, though now with this fear coming up, I started to doubt myself. I took a breath and gave myself a moment to stabilize – and I looked at the point within myself.

I could see that practically speaking, I did not use the instruments. Not because I was hindered to do so, but because I had moved into a new part of my life where these instruments did not have the same role to fulfill. I could see that I was satisfied and fulfilled in terms of having explored and pushed myself to develop a relationship with the instruments and that I was ready to let them go. Thus, the fear did not have anything to do with my practical reality – it was all about myself – and how I was actually afraid of moving on and embracing the new expression of myself that have started to come through within me and my life – where my relationship with music and instruments has begun to change.

Because music and the expressions that I could access and live with my instruments, they are still part of my life, however the structure of my life today is different. Now, I express myself with music by singing songs that I really enjoy out loud, together with a stereo blasting the track at the same time – and the creative part of music – which I before expressed through writing and composing songs – that has become part of my job – where I spend a lot of time writing – and my carpentry hobby – where I must use my imagination and problem solving skills to create and find solutions.

Thus – with giving away some of my instruments – I am not giving away the expressions that I have developed and lived in making music – because those expressions are a part of ME – as such I see that it is important to not get lost in the structure and picture of this world – and relate what I experience and live to the images – because it is not about what it looks like – it is about WHO I AM – and HOW I EXPRESS myself within what I do.

I have found that it is easy to forget this, because the images seems to be so important, however looking back out my life, what has always been a constant is that the images change. My world will move, transform, become different, but I remain, which also exemplifies why it is so important to place attention and focus on developing OURSELVES – and not lose ourselves in the evanescent creations/allures of money and consumerism that so easily grip our attention and that we convince ourselves is the most significant point within our lives.

Day 336: Aligning Self To Reality

What I have liked to do in my life when it comes to interests and hobbies is to commit myself a 100 percent to them. I have enjoyed making one sole point the center of my existence, pushing that one point as far as I have been able to. This way of immersing myself in interests have allowed me to develop skills and abilities fast, and reach goals that I had set for myself. I loved and still do love the process of taking on something new, a to me completely unknown technique, and then putting in the time to master point. The process of learning and expanding I find to be very rewarding and fulfilling, and it is fascinating to look back and see the progress that has happened.

However, growing up in this world, having to survive and make a living for myself, things change. It is not anymore possible for me to dedicate all of my time and energy to only one particular aspect of my world, as I have many other responsibilities and commitments that needs to be cared for daily. This is not necessarily a bad thing, it simply means that things have changed, my life is not anymore the way it was ten years, and because of that, the way I approach interests and hobbies must align as well. And this is what I would like to discuss in this blog, how we tend to limit ourselves in our self-expression through attempting and trying to re-live memories of the past instead of looking at the possibilities and state of our current life, and aligning our self-expression to the new conditions.

This is an example picked from my own life. Before I started to work, and before I moved to a big farm property, when I was still studying and living in a small tenant flat, I used to love recording music. I would sit for hours and play with sounds, record segments, and practice my instrumental parts to perfection. I experienced these moments as deeply fulfilling and enjoyable. However, as is the case with must students, my university studies got to an and, and a new chapter began in my life, where I now had to go out and find work for myself. Hence, this is what I did, which decreased the time I had available for music drastically. Then, as I have touched upon above, I moved to a big farm property, which for those that are not aware comes with a great amount of maintenance work, thus further decreasing the time I had available.

I realized that I did not anymore have the time necessary to sit down and pursue my interest for music in the same way as I had done in my past. My life had changed, yet my interest and desire to express myself within making music had not. This initially created a lot of conflict within me, and I blamed my work, where I live, and the amount of time that I had to place into ‘survival’ related points. The problem was that I could not fit in my hour long sessions the way that I had done before, and that made me feel limited, and constricted. There simply was not time for it.

At first, I believed that the solution to my problem was to move to a smaller property, and to decrease the hours I worked. I thought that if I managed to pull that off, I would have time again to do what I love. However, I could soon see that neither of those options were practical. Because fact is that I had made a decision to move to a farm property, than in terms of living space, comfortableness, and compatibility, is by far the best place I have ever lived at – and fact is that I did walk through my education and the job that I managed to get is directly related to my studies and a very good foundation for my future life – and fact is that this job is demanding and time consuming. Thus, I could see that even if I did not like it, my life had changed, and changed in such a way that it was not practical for me to redirect my focus and change the path I had started out on. I saw that it made sense to stick to my decisions and keep walking. Though, the problem still remained, I did not have time for my music.

At this point insights started to open up . I understood that I did not have a choice and that instead of attempting and trying to reinsert my past way of living into my new life – I had to restructure the way I approached things and align them into my current state of life. This is when I saw that instead of recording music for hours, I could take my guitar, sit down to sing and play some 10 to 15 minutes when I saw I had a moment to do so. Because that way of inserting music into my life did work with the conditions I was faced with – and within this I could also see, realize and understand – that what I was missing was not specifically the recording of music – it was instead my expression that I had accessed and lived while practicing music. Hence, I realized that I could bring through this expression in small bursts, when there was time for it.

This is what I mean with aligning myself to reality, instead of trying to align reality to my memories and ideas, where I try to impose and enforce a particular outcome, because I am too stuck in my mind, and not HERE – with the PHYSICAL. The solution is thus to embrace our current set of circumstances, work with what is here, be creative, and not accept and allow ourselves to believe that there is only one way to do things – because there is not!

Why is wall street a casino?

The answer to this question doesn’t need to have more research than looking at the economic section of a daily newspaper, or switching on the television to look at the news cast; because what is proven time over time as one look at these reports is that the economy makes absolutely NO SENSE what-so-ever. Nobody is able to tell whether the economy will increase, or decrease – and when it decrease everyone end up surprised – and people jump out of their rooftop offices, as they lost all that they owned; the economy simply doesn’t make any sense.

And this is also proven by the fact that there are so many companies that go into the market, maybe they make great earnings, to the next month bankrupt – the economy is such a unstable, and unpredictable environment that any other term but casino can’t accurately enough describe the sheer luck required to get anywhere in this world – in terms of ‘winning on the stock market’.

What’s fascinating is that many still believe that there is skill to becoming rich – that it’s something you struggle towards, and fight towards, and then one day you suddenly ‘make it’ – thinking that everyone has the ability to ‘win’; while in-fact there are very, very few people that ever transcend their birth given socio-economic class. Most stay where they we’re born – as workers, or academics, most of us simply take on the track of our parents. And if your ‘lucky’ enough to be born rich – then this will be your future life.

As such – the stock market, the economy and capitalism isn’t a place wherein your dreams will be fulfilled – and you’ll be able to have your ‘freedom’ – it’s in-fact the opposite; it’s the prison where you’ll be a wage-slave till the end of your days, wishing, hoping and desiring that you’d one day be able to get out of your misery – but that they will never arrive.

And then you would through your life attempting to scrounge sufficient of money to give you a ‘comfortable’ old age – or enough money to pay for your hospital bills, or at least your apartment bills. We all, or the big majority of us, exist within such living conditions of moving from month to month – and still: even though we exist in this experience and lived application of a wage-slave, we persist holding unto the dream of richness, the hope that it’ll someday be our turn to win!

Though this will in-fact never happen – you won’t ever truly win until all win. And when all when, as all are given equal access to what is here, that’s when heaven on earth will become a reality – and you’ll in-fact be able to have all that which you ‘truly’ desire – as that feeling of safety, and comfort all strife for; everyone will know that they are safe, and without any risk to be harmed – and all the material possession that we desire – that we use to support our physical bodies, and realities with – they will become available to all. Everyone will win!

So – delete any thought that resides within saying that only 1 is able to win – and that the world must be a casino of winners and losers – such a belief is self-limitation and not in-fact real.

The markets are failing!

The markets are failing and everything is going down! Panic! Run in circles! This is basically the message that is being sent out into the world by the media, as the big markets come tumbling down. It’s fascinating though, nobody knows why the markets is coming tumbling down, and nobody knows how to stop it from tumbling down; and naturally everyone goes into an experience of anxiety and fear, as our survival seems to be threatened, because the markets are falling down.

Isn’t it strange? That we have this unpredictable god in our world called “the markets” that rule, and decide who’s going to be rich, and who’s going to be poor, who’s going to die, and who’s going to live in abundance – without anyone having control over it? Or, do we have control of it?

The experts, as they take on the task of explaining to the public why the markets are failing, usually speaks about debt, and that the major economies of the world are sinking in their public debt. Yet, are they really? I mean, what is debt but a promise to pay? But what if we simply relinquish that promise to pay, and forgive all debt? Wouldn’t the situation then simply stop? Why isn’t anyone looking at the situation from a starting point of self-responsibility, wherein we realize that the system that we currently face, the markets that are currently being volatile, is all our own creation, it’s our own mess; and as such we’re able to clear it up.

I mean, simply forgive and remove the debt, then print up an equal share of money to everyone, enough to last them from birth to death, and watch what happens; suddenly we’ll have equality amongst men, and labor would become something done for the enjoyment, and common sense of it, instead of doing it for money; because everyone will have enough money – no more competition – no more struggle – but instead we can focus upon this practical, physical reality, and make sure we create the necessities needed for everyone to survive.

Though at the moment such a proposition looks very far-fetched, as man seems to be persistent to hold on to this system of inequality and chaos. It’s crazy that we choose to have this current money system in place; it doesn’t support anything but negativity; competition, jealousy, inequality, manipulation, deception, fear – what is the reason that we’re still in this system? Are we stupid or something?

So, as the markets fall, and people start to experience that rush of anxiety, as they know that their savings is disappearing, and that their protection against such horrors as starvation, poverty, and a shitty life experience, is becoming weaker. We created this glorious system called capitalism – where apparently everyone one is able to win; yet half of the world is living in poverty, so apparently everyone isn’t able to win.

How long are we going to torment ourselves? What is the point of tormenting ourselves like this? How can anyone willingly support a system that breeds so much suffering and pain in the world – it’s like we’ve all become completely insane, lost in our minds, not knowing anymore how we got here, who created this money system and why; thinking that this is the way that it must always be.

Is the problem maybe that everyone wants to win? Everyone is hoping to be able to be the one that wins, and is able to scrape all the crumbs of the table, and eat the entire cookie as well. How much must we suffer before we realize that this dream of wanting to win isn’t real, because we will never win as along as only a few can crown themselves victorious, while the rest becomes the eternal losers; because that kind of inequality breeds violence, spitefulness, criminality, hate, and anger, and still the winners are not safe, comfortable, with a enjoyable life, as the must now build walls around their houses, to protect themselves from the losers.

What kind of a world is it really that we’re living in when we must build walls around our houses? And what is that wall supposed to keep out? Yes – those that have lost, those that didn’t manage to fulfill their dream of being the winner, and so we perpetuate and compound a system of competition that breeds violence; and have people become afraid of each-other, nervous, wary, and tense – as we’re all attempting to get to that win, and protect ourselves from the loss.

Is there another way to live? Do you enjoy life currently? Do you enjoy fear? Do you enjoy loosing? Do you know that you’re currently a slave to the amount of money that you have?

Would you like to have free choice? For real? Actually being able to decide how you want to live your life, not being limited by the numbers in your bank account; would you like that?

Interesting questions huh? We’ve really limited ourselves in our understanding as to what can actually be created in this reality, limited ourselves to this system of capitalism, of lack, of scarcity and competition; while this is not the only way to live – there are other way’s to live.

Would you like to live as a millionaire? Would you like to be able to trust your neighbor? Would you like to have free medical care, free education, free food, free housing, free water, free electricity, freed from doom?

This is all possible; we can make it to be so. We created what is here currently, and as such we can create heaven on earth, as what is best for all, as equal money. Yes – EQUAL MONEY is the solution we’ve been waiting for, it’s the breath of life for all human beings, so all can live a life of dignity.

Thus ­– check out EQUAL MONEY, as we needn’t to exist and live as we currently do. We can have fun instead!

Where does your money come from? Do you know?

Where does your money come from? Do you know?

Why is it that there is never enough money? Do you know?

Why is it that debt exists? Do you know?

Why is it that people are unemployed? Do you know?

Who controls our money supply? Why can’t the government make money in order to create new jobs?

Why is money scarce, and always created at interest?

These are EXTREMELY important points to take into consideration when one looks at the current world system, as our current money system, figuring out why things are as they currently are.

See – banks at interest create all of our money, as such all humans are indebted and always in a continuous struggle to pay back this interest. But see – it’s impossible to pay back, because all money that is earned in society is also from the banks, and as such also created at an interest. Due to this fact there will always, undeniably, unquestionably, be poor people in this world – it’s simply a consequence of our system. There is in-fact no ‘real money’ in the world, but only money as debt and as such no possibility for all humans to effectively take care of themselves in this world – and have sufficient with money to survive.

This is how the quantity of money is controlled in the world, through debt. Money is not made to be in abundance and available for everyone, but instead people are forced to compete and fight over the small remnants of cash that flows around in our system.

The same happens with money that is given value through the gold standard. As gold is a limited and scarce resource, through making the value of money dependent upon gold, it allows people to save their money, and have more money than others, with no ability for those with no money, to create their own money, as they don’t have any gold to back their money up with.

So, both defining the value of money in relation to gold, and placing money into circulation in society at an interest has the same effect – someone get’s monopoly upon money, the power to control the quantity of money, and as such the power over another human-beings life; as we can all agree that money is essential for any human beings survival on this earth.

Thus, when the supply of money is controlled, and those that hold the control of the money, decide to make the money supply scarce, it will have massive repercussions for those with no money, as they hold no ability anymore to support themselves, as they have no money and no ability to accumulate or create any either.

So in essence, the right to life is being controlled by those that have the power of the money supply, as the quantity of money in society.

What would then happen if debt was abolished and instead the government free of debt suddenly distributed money, and as such deployed skills and work-force to the parts of society that needed such support?

Firstly, people’s savings would become useless, and people’s accumulated wealth would become useless, as now money could be issued to all people, in abundance, in exchange for labor or work. And there wouldn’t be any scarcity of money, as the government would create all the money they needed in order to create and establish the labor that must be done for society to function effectively. No longer would society be dependent upon rich people to willingly give up their money, or banks to lend money at an interest to be paid back, instead the government would be able to issue the amount required for all people to be given a healthy and sound life.

And what about inflation then? I mean, inflation only exists when there is too much money, and to little products to be bought, this wouldn’t happen if the Government issued money for labor, as then the necessary products would be made for money to uphold it’s value and worth.

And there would be an abundance of money to be issued, just as much money as products people are willing to create. Then there wouldn’t be any inflation as the amount of money would always be equal to what is here.

But I mean, even such a theory about inflation and stagflation is stupid and unnecessary to take into consideration, when it’s realized that we’re in-fact in control of the money supply – we’re in control of the worth of money, we’re in control of the quantity of money. And we’re in control of the production of necessities in society – there is no ‘market forces’ to take into consideration – because what we decide to create will become the reality that we live in. Thus – if we decide to produce food enough for all people on earth, we’ll also find in our shops, enough food for all people on earth. And if people don’t have enough money to buy that food, then we simply issue and print the necessary money for people to buy that food.

And if the farmers then feel they’re loosing money, hell then we print some more money to them – and we state and define the value of that money, so they feel like they are getting something out of their labor. I mean, it’s all up to us how we value and define our money, and through effectively directing and sharing money in society, between all people, moving it within the context of what is best for all – we could easily create heaven on earth. And right now, all we get as value from our money is not being indebted, clearing our way to the end of the month – and that’s it. We don’t get any substantial support or reassurance what so ever, as we currently but strive from on a day-to-day basis, but to survive = a very limited existence.

So why not define money as something abundant? As something that is made for everyone? As something that supports a life of dignity for everyone? I mean – we are in-fact the Masters of Money and it’s only when we accept and allow ourselves to realize this that change will be able to take place.

Thus – research what the fuck is going on in this world in terms of money; realize that poverty is artificially created, as well as the scarcity of money. Realize that we are the creators of what is here – and that the value of money is no natural law – it’s a man created value and as such it can be changed.

The solution is called equal money, as a system where the value of money is life, meaning – we give money the value to support and assist life. Simply, yet unimaginable in our current system – thus investigate equal money.

And also watch this documentary called ‘The Secret of Oz’ – as it well explain how our money supply currently is manipulated to give the illusion of scarcity in this world.
