Can Self Interest be Common Sense?
Common Sense means What is Best for All – Self Interest means what’s Best for ME-Myself and I wherein this ‘Me’ as the I of our personal considerations usually disregards the extent to which the decisions we make in order to satisfy this personal-satisfaction manifest inequality and abuse as consequences within our world when not considering this ‘Self’ not only as an individual, but as the Whole as One and Equal = who we really are –
How come Self Interest is abusive? Through accepting and allowing the fulfillment of wants, needs and desires at the expense of others; this is within the understanding and realization that, such needs/ wants and desires can only be obtained with Money – and Money in this world – as we know it – is not something that is ‘readily given’ to all beings at birth to be able to live in dignity.It’s actually interesting seeing how the idea and proposal of ‘Supporting All Beings to Live from birth to death’ is considered ‘utopian,’ yeah right, but according to whose engineered sociopathic logic and rationality? Is it common sense to allow abuse, destruction and absolute neglect toward life in order to manifest a selfish version of ‘heaven on earth’ for only a fraction of the population, while allowing the rest to have slave-lives trying to ‘make-it-through,’ I mean, how is capitalist thinking and the ultimate pursuit of happiness within it Not the actual meaning of a delusional psychopathic behavior that ‘evolved’ into an economical-system that we have accepted and allowed as an acceptable idea of progress and ‘evolution’ based upon the abuse of Life on Earth?
This morning I was pondering how the Law of Attraction became a pirated-book sold for only a fraction of its original-version retail price, making it affordable for the lower-middle class reader that would usually not visit the elite bookstores, and instead could find it in every corner’s newsstand, next to the TV gossip and soft porn magazines sold to the populace as general entertainment. This is a bit paradoxical since the people selling ‘the Secret’ intended to make money out of it by backing up such products with laws that make it legally possible to sue anyone that violates copyright laws that are intended only to grant all profit-making to the ‘owners’ of so called ‘intellectual property.’ We all know that copy-rights means endless lines of fine print that will ensure you starve to death in jail for daring to make money out of something that, within our current legal framework, is patented solely for the sake of having the exclusivity to the revenue from sale, as well as being legally endowed with ‘the right to sue’ anyone that dares to make money out of it too without your consent – not that such ‘consent’ could ever really possibly exist though. And this is how through a massive promotion to this so called existential miracle, people satisfied their quench to know ‘The Secret’ and began asking cars, homes, husbands, wives, the latest gadget or greatest job to the universe, as if the entirety of existence was only waiting with an open-credit master-card to fulfill all our dreams – yet, people we bought into it – pun intended, and others were also able to manifest their own little secret of making money out of virtually, stealing ‘intellectual property’ and re-selling it in the black market – all in the same name of making money – Is Greed our inherent nature? Yes, hence our capitalist system remaining pending from strands only as we speak, since the physical reality was never considered in this ‘infinite source of happiness’ that this Earth could apparently provide, well one thing is certain: not under the current terms and conditions we’re living in.
Now, what does the Law of Attraction and Positive Thinking implies?
At the eyes of our regular mortal coils, the ultimate fulfillment of our so-called purpose for the cheerful ones on Earth is: being happy – and what happens when we get such constant desire for happiness in a world where all that is in fact constant is the intense abuse toward all life forms that is equal to the intense reek that depletion, destruction that death leave as a trail of every single day? One must know that there is something absolutely flawed and Not functioning appropriately in that equation. It’s the same as the example placed above: you get millions of beings aiming to get the best position in a job – now, how is that able to be fulfilled if not killing, battering and getting rid of – in any possible way – those that are aiming at the same ‘throne’ that you are. What was never realized is how within fuelling people’s personal interest, the world would become an absolute happiness-aspiring, instant-gratification self-fulfillment seeking machine that would do ‘whatever it takes’ to make the most of our “lives” as long as some ‘piece of heaven’ was tasted and savored for a while, even if this meant usually at the end of one’s life after the body has been consumed in decades of hard work, stress and endless payrolls to eventually retire and live a comfortable Lie for a few years until you drop dead, literally.
Now, if such savage-search for happiness is creating this concrete jungle – then what is the factor that is being missed within this apparent benevolent/well-intentioned initiative to promote man’s ‘well being’ through the individual seeking of happiness, fulfillment and a general ‘successful living’ even in asking it to the universe? Money.
Ayn Rand’s objectivism and proposal for man’s right to pursue happiness missed one point: the moment that such happiness can only be bought with money and/or private property, and that money is not being equally available to all beings, what do we get? A competitive fight for happiness that is an euphemism for a rapacious death-match for survival of which Capitalism is sustained by.
There is nothing wrong with happiness itself, it is the means through which such ‘happiness’ is sought and founded upon within the context of our current capitalist system which stems from the very physical-mind relationship we are existing as at an individual level and that Isour problem and our creation.
Ever-elusive concepts like ‘Liberalism’ have turned into a left wing of a sickly dove that never stood as an equal and one physical consideration of requiring both wings to fly. The acceptance of factions, religions, cultures, political parties and even football / soccer teams developed a sense of rights and claims that often veered more toward the benefits from such special categorization in society other than promoting any ‘well being’ in society. In all groups that stand for anything else other than equality, there will always be a point of separation from the whole and as such, end up creating further sectarianism than any other ‘good intention’ that seems right within their self interested nature. This is how within the acceptance of groups, movements and collectives in social, political or religious manners has made of Society a CULTure of sorts, wherein defending one’s personal interest/ well being was never considered at the level of the absolute collective. And here we got to the Key word: individual responsibility that creates a collective well being.
Let’s recap: what we got so far is a bunch of individuals trained to seek happiness in a world that doesn’t provide the ability to be ‘happy’ by default/ from birth, seeking miraculous means such as ‘the Law of Attraction’ wherein the godhead figure steps a notch up from your regular father-version of god as some superior-human like being and turning it into ‘the Universe.’ Then, we have ‘Capitalism’ which was founded upon the premise of slaves and masters within an obliged existence of economical disparity in order to ensure that there would always be someone willing to ‘do the job’ that would give continuation to the capital that others would require to expand/grow at the cost of those that had been deliberately put in such inherently-flawed/ minimized/ ostracized/ marginalized sectors of society that became – with all our aware frankness on the point – slaves to sustain a system that was designed to only benefit those ‘at the top,’ and I hyphen ‘the top’ as we now understand that even the Elite was part of a greater scheme in reality that had been blinded to all of humanity – yes even to ‘them’ as well – and all of this sick game of capital happiness being played due to a far more sinister game that had been invisible to us all, until 5 years ago when the Desteni Material emerged in cyberspace and into reality as a whole to change the course of the Universe’s fate.
Now, what the hell does this has to do with positive thinking, happiness, money, freedom and Ayn Rand’s philosophy, elitism and the wrapped up version of ‘The Secret’ as the blatant promotion of greed to maintain the slaves with a constant thought of happiness as the carrot on the stick to make the cog wheels churn by the energy spent in seeking to attain such sweet-dream perfect life? Well, Money. Energy as Money is the key point that enables ‘life to exist’ within the current bastardized version of society that we live in, exists as a fixed system of fake values that has caused massive suffering, abuse and exploitation of physical resources in the name of what? Individual’s ‘well being’ a.k.a. happiness and ultimate satisfaction.
Once again, the problem is not ‘Happiness’ but the ways that it is currently now only possible if some disenfranchised person’s back is broken and endlessly working trying to sustain a system that can only function for ‘some,’ which are those that usually boast about having a ‘great life.’ Thus what was the point missed in every single philosopher, theologian, psychologist, spiritual master, guru, anthropologist, psychologist, linguists and any other being that attempted to study the social organism and its potential solutions to a general well being? Well, the interdependence of the relationships between all parts of the ecosystem as One-and Equal being that requires nothing more and nothing less than a constant flow of energy stemming from the physical reality to exist.
Thus, just like a body that is healthy, happiness as that health-state of the organism can only be attained if the blood as money in the body is distributed to all parts in equality – what? Yes, why have we missed such basic biological principle of homeostasis within the cell where an equilibrium is formed when there’s a balance between the substances that go in and out and within this single action done at a cellular level by ALL cells, what do we have? The stability of the physical body that you and I in mint conditions experience, inadvertently so, I must say, as we are so occupied/ pre-occupied up there in our minds only thinking about happiness as an energetic flick of a match that burns quickly, without realizing that the little stick and phosphorus stem from a tree and minerals of the earth that are consumed in one single bright flame that gives away some heat for a while to then crash and burn to ashes, dust to dust – and so the same can be applied for any other organism and living being.
This places happiness into question. Why the hell on Earth have we created this flickering, climatic and ecstatic energetic idea of happiness as this body-churning experience that we all desire and crave for, yet Know doesn’t last long, which is often based on sex, money spent on something that may satisfy your wildest sybarite dreams to then be left high and dry seeking for more and, of course, just like any drug, leaving you instantly being willing to do Anything to get that ‘feeling’ back?
Again a quick recap: we have people seeking happiness in a world-system that only functions according to the established abuse within a capitalist system that can enable the current definition of happiness based on the attainment of the ultimate satisfaction in an energetic experience provided by products -and dare I say people as well – that can be bought with money that exists as a fake system of values that has never regarded the value of Life as its actual foundation to exist, while neglecting the fact that for any good feeling to exist – just like the flick of a match and getting flame for a couple of seconds – must burn to ashes only to give off that nice light for a while – and this money-disparity obviously accumulation a severe and almost mortal-disease at this stage wherein the blood-money has not circulated At All in various parts of the body. We could say 3/4 of the body as this world is existing at the verge of absolute necrosis due to one fourth of that entire organism/ body that is Ourselves as SELF is growing like a cancer that stems from the deliberate decision to abuse the SELF as a Selfish Interest imposed onto the physical reality wherein there is no actual ‘purpose’ other than that of the functionality of life/living in the physical itself.
How do we know that animals do not seek such ever-elusive happiness as humans do? Once again, Desteni material, Animal Life reviews explaining their designs, forms and existence in direct relationship to the physical reality of which all of us 7 plus billion humans have been utterly oblivious-to up to now.
So, what have we always added to our entire happiness-seeking driven machines of self interest yet mostly missed within the consideration of actual value on Earth? The PHYSICAL matter that enables such desire, that enables such products and such tangible-value for money to exist as the externalization of a cap-system toward the exigencies of who we have accepted and allowed ourselves to become as a mind system that always requires fuel to satisfy its existence – apparently. It’s just like a car’s motor that would simply ‘lose its purpose/ reason for existing’ if it had no fuel to run/ function – the same goes on within how our minds are currently programmed to exist as, and as long as we exist only as such limited versions of physicality possessed by the mind that constantly requires energy/ fuel to exist, we’ll continue seeking happiness absurdly-so as an energetic experience in a system wherein such happiness is linked to – once again – money at the expense of the physical consumption of life to cause that flickering light that ends up burning to ashes, leaving the costumer temporarily satisfied yet asking for more.
That’s the history of our civilization – you see any possible evolution here? Not at all? Great, me neither.
Rationality can thus be redefined to a reality-sense of humanity’s fulfillment in a way where all living organisms are equally fulfilled yet equally regarded to ensure that no overdosing of ‘personal benefit’ takes place as greed, and as such, any form of harm, abuse or psychological extortion could only mean a pathological agent that requires to be examined to assess its willingness to exist as an equal-part of support for the whole. As the Soul of Money series explains, what would happen if our cells had personality disorders? What would happen if our heart would suddenly go ‘on strike’ and decide ‘not go to work and cause havoc’ within some type of demand for more blood that means, by default, an obvious functionality-disorder that causes harm/disease within the organism. I sigh as I see to what extent we have never had Physical Common Sense which is what is Best for All at the Physical level that we can fulfill ourselves as Organisms. This must be understood not only at the biological or psychological level that is currently understood as within society, but at the level of the physical-mind relationship that we exist as individuals.
Now – the solution is thus very simple and practical. If we all seek our personal interest and ultimate satisfaction in life, what do we do?
If we look at it, when existing in such ‘idyllic state of happiness’ in our minds as the ‘driving force’ to do so, we actually push ourselves to do things, we have a ‘motivation’ to wake up every day, we even care more for our health so that we can ‘live longer’ and possibly have an extended period of time to satisfy ourselves in the delights of what we could define ‘happiness’ as – I recognize that a mini-crash course on how to redefine happiness would be required, however let’s base happiness on a single principle proposed in the very first words of this blog: Common Sense = What’s Best for All – hey! but we’re talking about MY happiness, not what’s ALL can have! – Well, here is the nitty gritty matrix dotting question:
Are YOU willing to see your Neighbor as happy as you, are you willing to know your children will be as happy as you, are you willing to know that even your ‘worst enemy’ – as defined by the current default opposition/ enemies that are systematically created to keep the world-system running- will also have the same rights and ‘liberties’ to obtain/ have access to the same satisfaction/ happiness/ well being available as you?
If you answered YES to all of the questions above, voilà: you are ready to read more about the Equal Money Systemand understand how Happiness as an physical, constant, living- satisfactorily state can only exist if all beings are perpetually endowed and granted with the same ability/ access to the resources on Earth as any other living being – and yes sir, that implies plants, animals, the environment’s consideration in order to create a sustainable living-condition for all inhabitants of this greater one and equal organism that is ourselves, as the world, as existence as a whole.
Sounds great? Yes – why haven’t we done it? Fear, control, self interest as defined within the current capitalist system which is promoted as self interest a.k.a. greed and power considered at an individual level only – wait, so this means that…. Yes, it means that the problem has resided in the ways we attempted to attain happiness through unequal means – Inequality thus became the spear that would always end up killing us after being dying on a cross that we were born to by default. Sounds cruel? Wait to hear the rest ( Here: The Soul of Money – Why the Money-System does not Care about Life – Part 10)
For now, I suggest directing your mouse to physically click on the links below to find out how it is that we are currently already walking a process to establish Heaven on Earth and that ever-sought Happiness and Fulfillment for all beings in the Eco-System through equalizing the monetary system to a single tool that can enable us to ‘try out’ and see how it is to never worry again not having food on the table or having no roof over your head or proper healthcare or chronic depression wherein you can’t possibly see yourself out of the loop. Yes, it may seem ‘impossible’ however it is as real as the fingers that are typing this: We Can Do This –
And all it takes is our Decision and Self-Will to do so. yes, you see the SELF before WILL? Well that implies that Self as the consideration of the individual and as one and equal whole / as all that is here wills itself to LIVE in Equality through the establishment of a living-system that is able to fulfill everyone’s needs by the mere fact of being an equally existent organism within the whole. We don’t require to think positively or ask the universe for this, it is ourselves physical beings here on Earth can can agree to establish this as our living policies.
It is thus not ‘over the top’ to realize how the meaning of words can be re-aligned/re-signified to be What is Best for All, and that’s what we are walking in a practical way at an individual level and as a group on the face of the Earth that stand for Life in Equality – this means that whatever we can physically consume to live, whomever we can work with, relate to and establish functional relationships with are equal parts of the physical worth that we can co-exist within in equal terms by our sheer decision to do so.
Self Interest becomes then the application by the individual that commits itself to LIVE in Equality – this means that the individual pursuit of well being/ happiness is redefined to a constant sound-stable condition of physical satisfaction/ fulfillment, where all our needs are met, where All Suffering is eradicated by the mere practical application of recognizing each other as Equals at last. Yes, at Last because it has never happened before in existence and if we don’t make it this time, we’ll sure live the same fortune of that single match that is flickered to see a marvelous flame glare for a few seconds and then burn down to ashes with no possibility to get itself back on track again – the depletion of the physical reality is Real. And this is what Must Matter to All co-habitants of planet Earth.
Thus our suggestion is to Stop before we lose our current existential opportunity to live in ‘liberty and freedom’ that is ready to be established within the principle of an economic, social and political System that regards Life in Equality as its basic foundation – this is thus realizing that our happiness, our self interest can only be sustainable if this SELF is considered as the WHOLE wherein our personal satisfaction is able to be created within the consideration of What is Best for All Life, fulfilling our purpose to live and exist in Equality for the rest of our existence.
Full circle now:
Are You Ready to LIVE SELF-Interest as an Equal Part of the Whole to manifest What is Best for All?
