This is a ‘pingback’ to an ongoing posting at the Desteni forum with regards to basic questions asked and given perspective for with regards to the points annotated as the title of this blog  which I suggest you read before continuing here to have the basic background to see where there rest of this post stems from: Give&Take, Ownership, Possessions in an Equal Money System

Here I share some further points to consider  based on what we’ve now gotten to cross-reference with ourselves in our reality and how such points would change within an Equal Money System.

Reply:

It’s similar to a point wherein someone asked me (through a YouTube comment in one of the Equal Money System videos) about being able to get/ own/ have 5 cars wherein I pointed out that we can only drive one car at a time therefore creating an evidence on how the accumulation of cars have become a ‘symbol of power’ in society – this single idea of ‘having up to 5 cars’ comes from the capitalist brainwashing that is extensively promoted and nowadays propagated through the ‘rich and famous’ that accumulate all types of rarities and cars and houses that can only exist if there is enough slaves they can pay for to keep everything in place and functioning.

So, it will be interesting to see how the usual consumerist quirks that have been adopted as part of ‘our preferences’ are debunked once we realize that we didn’t actually NEED the item, but indulged into the accumulation, variety or worth-placed on such item/product/object as a mental value system which we’ve embedded to virtually everything – even sometimes to people – in separation of ourselves. That’s the infamous monetizing of reality wherein if we look in common sense, having 5 cars for a single person is a plain act of excess – yet I know people that do own such amount of cars and have made of cars ‘their passion’ but such ‘passion’ can only exist as long as they are able to profit such amounts of money to keep their hobby in place. Someone that is barely making money for a living won’t think of getting more than 1 car and only if that’s utterly necessary and doesn’t affect the rest of their most immediate needs to cover.

The point of ‘meeting your needs’ is actually very cool to emphasize because within that, we’ll be able to draw the line to see how much do we buy out of sheer ‘compulsion’ or actual necessity. This is one of the points that I’ve placed in action within walking this process wherein I’ve simplified my expenses as I have simplified my ‘lifestyle’ to begin with. All forms of personality build-ups require money, all addictions and any other ‘entertainment’ that I might seldom indulge in whereas others ‘need to have it’ every single weekend or so – all eventually money related just as anything else in this reality. And the point to look at is what’s behind it all. I went to buy fruit, people were watching a soccer match in the store, people go to the store to buy beer because ‘there is a soccer match’. So even if it seems as some type of ‘healthy entertainment’, the single ‘enjoyment’ of such match is mostly inherently related to alcohol consumption, buying  of food or certain junk food I mean, there are many products associated with one single point of entertainment such as watching a soccer game on a saturday night, probably more than what we can even consider. That is not an actual ‘need’ but part of the accepted entertainment that is just as anything currently profit driven and sold well as people ‘need to get distracted’ after spending an entire week ‘making a living’. So it all compensates itself when the money they earn is spent on such pleasures wherein it all goes back to the same ‘masters’ that plan this entire system to work to the T for their own benefit. This is HOW we are responsible for ‘corporate greed’ as well.

What we will face eventually as we go into a transitional phase is the re-assessment of ‘what we are built of’ – what do we buy, why do we buy it, what value/worth is such product adding up to ‘who I am’ – does buying/owning such thing define me in any way? Can I live without it? These are literal questions that I’ve asked myself whenever finding something and going into the compulsory state of ‘wanting to buy it’ – I tend to accumulate stuff and I realize this is out of fear – or creating a ‘stock’ which I call ‘being prepared/cautious’ – sometimes it is so I don’t have to go buying milk all the time and sometimes it’s out of creating a sense of security around having more than 2 items of the basic meals I usually eat. Now this is only talking about basic-needs like food. If we go into all the items we buy for our pleasure/entertainment or sheer compulsive shopping-treats we’ll get to face the reality of the worth/value as the why we buy what we buy and how we’ve defined ourselves accordingly.

Possessing creates a form of security in our current system. We can hear how people are gleeful whenever they manage to ‘finally own their house’ – if they ever get to do so. So far it’s been quite a long time since I’ve heard people getting to own their house nowadays unless it was inherited or bought in the ‘old bonanza days’ in this world. I also got to know brutal stories of people losing their homes to banks after great devaluations took place in this country in 1994 after having their mortgage doubled up from overnight. Insane, and such person that was my mother’s best friend eventually got cancer and died, consumed by the constant worry about their elusive debt that grew exponentially fast.

So, possessing a house, a car or anything won’t mean ‘securing your life’ as your life will simply be able to be granted with a house to live in, a car if you need it and virtually ending this constant worry about ‘finally owning something’ for the sake of being able to sleep at ease at night.

Clarifying the bartering point is also cool as we can see how it is within the ‘I.O.U’s that money came to be within generating these relationships of give/take that weren’t unconditional. Eventually in bartering someone will decide that a kilo of potatoes ‘deserves’ two kilos of bananas for whatever reasons they might give and within that, creating further inequality between products which is an equivalent of profit making in the long wrong = inequality; whereas if everything is worked for to be produced and placed as equally available, we’ll dissolve such current differences that are outflows of speculation that comes from the ‘claws’ of the system that decide on the worth of certain foods in the ‘food market’ for the sake of creating some profit for them.

A basic example here is how avocados went up in price here in a crazy manner like never before and they explained me how it was because ‘the cream of the crop’ of avocados was sent out to the US and there were barely non ‘good stuff’ left here, so due to the infamous offer-demand law, the demand was such that couldn’t be fulfilled hence prices went up to the point wherein I would pay for one single avocado what could’ve been good for 3-4 avocados before. YET common sense is that there is a monopoly behind this that has made of ‘avocados’ a product of desire to be fulfilled in a certain way that the rest of the markets are absorbed to fulfill such need. As a parallel point, someone that owns an avocado tree in their parcel won’t experience any ‘change’ in the growth of avocados and, as a result of them being out of the market-circuit, they’ll simply have no correlation to the current rising up of avocados in prices in our usual markets – the tree is the tree and it ‘knows’ no economics which is an equivalent of fancy laws that are created to benefit only a few.

As a final example someone asked the other day in one of my videos on how things would be given – meaning if there was John and Paul wanting to have a car yet John didn’t work at all and remained under an apple tree all day while Paul worked all day, how would ‘that’ be equal? Yet the basic point that I asked is why would John want a car if he was planning to remain under an apple tree all day? These type of questions mostly reveal to what extent we are not willing to give to another what we want for ourselves, and how even if John decides to stay underneath the tree, if he requires a car and has been a human being that’s worked for the system and shows no other signs of greed, then cool for him getting a car, why not?

Working won’t be ‘our key to the world’ anymore in the sense of only being able to have access to our basic requirements if we have a job and If we have enough money to meet our needs. Within this, work will also become part of our expression and process of discovery of what the human being will be able to be/become once there is no worry to have food on the table or a place to stay in the next day.

By living in a world where giving and taking in equality is available for all, the inherent greed that comes through fear of loss will cease to exist as no ‘scarcity’ will be in place – we know how scarcity is part of the tactics to promote compulsive acquisition of goods as there is an ‘impending fear’ of such item/product not being there anymore next time or ‘going extinct’ or rising up in price for whatever reason those that ‘name-the-game’ would decide for. This is hooked then with trends and any seasonal human quirks such as Christmas time when everybody is out there shopping their pockets till they’re dry.

Lol how can we take anything as ‘true value’ in this current system if we’ve monetized all, even ‘love’ or ‘happiness’ or whatever anyone would consider to be ‘out of the loop’ from such value system.

Everything has been ‘tainted’ within this current system and, because it’s our creation, we’ve got to take self responsibility for it. We cannot possibly continue wanting to ‘own the world’ for the sake of feeling superior, feeling more, feeling ‘valued’, feeling ‘loved’ even – there is a LOT that we’ve created as an idea of ourselves disregarding the very physicality that has tolerated our mental bs value systems for so long now.

We’ve got to stop within ourselves, we’ve got to realize that a simplification of our own lives is required to then be aware of what will actually entail to take self responsibility for our very basic needs and services to be met/fulfilled once that there are no more ‘slaves’ to pay for to do the work for us, once that we are not able to ‘own’ for the sake of creating a certain profile within the credit-system required to be able to obtain ‘more’ as such surplus of money was only debt anyways. Within this, all egos will eventually be deflated like balloons that lose their hot air – which is money as it currently exists. This is part of what we’ve realized and shared here as part of our process in seeing how money affects ‘who we are’ and how we experience ourselves differently when ‘we have more than enough’, when ‘we don’t have any’ or ‘when we are on the verge of losing it all’ – and many other interim states of course.

So – money as the added power on the human will cease to exist and this giving and taking will remain as the exchange that we have as our physical breathing- in-out/ giving and taking without being able to ‘accumulate breaths for the sake of living more’ or out of ‘fear of survival’ lol – if we take the basic principle of breathing as ‘Life’ as I am Here, we’ll be able to understand how any form of ‘power’ beyond each breath is a delusion that has only filled some greedy men’s pockets and how giving and taking should be as fearless and as ‘natural’ as breathing.

Lots of changes ahead for us, glad to have it this way because we cannot possibly continue as we currently are now.
Thanks.

What Comes After Greek?

Posted in Equal Money System, Reform the Monetary System with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 17, 2011 by marlenlife

Greek's Bailout ENDS with Equal Money System78 Billion Euros have been injected to Bailout Portugal after similar efforts have been taken on with Ireland and Greece. What’s Next? Spain is facing similar trauma as unemployment rate goes higher and the reclaim for the current government’s restrictions is roaming in the streets of Madrid.

An add-on to this is the latest detention of FMI’s director Strauss-Kahn who simply couldn’t resist his ‘human nature’ and is now facing sexual assault charges which are shattering the ground of the already wobbly foundation of the EU as economical institution.

The question at hand is:

Will the Bailout for work for Greece ? Will ‘re-structuring’ the debt work?

Placing Greece and other countries out of the EU would double up their debt just by converting to their old currencies again.

Who would be affected by these countries going out of the EU? Those with the most juicy inversion in it which is the reason why Germany is wanting to ‘soften the debt’ at all cost.

Almost a year ago while visiting Germany, there was a lot of hatred towards Greece and their on going situation. German citizens were complaining about having to pay ‘the Greeks’ squandering’ with their taxes which only creates further separation where these type of dependencies exist solely as a way of a forced support that inevitable goes beyond the financial-border and creeps into people’s minds which breeds discrimination from people in a certain country.

There must be a consideration towards the inherent separation that’s created at the level of individuals in these countries wherein one is ‘feeling abused’ for paying the others’ ‘squandering’. This can only result in further underlying violence, hatred and discrimination between nations.

Why is the individual not considered as equal within this? How come we’ve made of money the eternal damnation upon people’s pockets, people’s identities as ‘nations’ and claiming to be such position just because of how a system ‘functions’, a system that WE have created as humanity. That is sincerely insane.

Now,  Spain has been trying to keep itself out of the ball game in this but it’s already facing people’s demands due to record high unemployment of up to 21%.  How long can the EU continue rescuing countries?

We realize that none of this forced-agreements on bailing out countries or ‘reducing their debt’ as a way to keep these countries on board will work in the long run. There’s been several asseverations that the EU as an economical institution won’t work – this is due to being mostly still covering up inherent flaws within the nations that are using the Euro while having severe differences and disadvantages to other countries using the same currency.

Is this about creating more money? More institutional support? Re-Structuring the Debt?

No. More money would result in more debt and more fictional band-aids placed to an inherent crack that’s always been existent as the structure of the current system we’re living in at a worldwide scale just based on how money is created and currently existent.

This ongoing situation of bailout parties is certainly placing the Euro at risk – this  places on the table the actual requirement in this world of an overall reform to the Economical System, this system as it is cannot possibly keep on going bailing out countries with non existent money that’s only based on Debt.

Re-structuring debt only means covering the sun with one finger – this won’t work either obviously.

We are proposing an overall reform to the current economical system into an Equality System wherein Money won’t be based upon debt and money won’t be only existent to give more power and authority to some than others, but will be an actual consideration of all countries and all people requiring to live without debt, to actually get to an equal stage that is no longer based on the past of debts and crisis.

This is what we are facing all over the world – not only in the Euro Zone – Since I’ve been aware of my country I’ve learned in school about the stratospherical numbers of the debt that’s been in place and that cannot be possibly ever paid back as that would mean, in most cases not only in México, the entire bankruptcy of the system.

Forgiving the debt through the Equal Money System is the way to go.

Research the website, realize that this is a change that can only come within the understanding of common sense and not current economy laws.

This change will come from people like you and me reading this blog – time to take the actual politic stand that we’ve all been ‘waiting for’

‎”The most urgent issue is the question of leadership and perspective in the working class. The opposition of workers and youth must be armed with a conscious revolutionary program based on the critical political lessons of the past century of struggle. That requires the building of new parties based on the program of socialist internationalism

Twice in twentieth-century Europe, the same fundamental contradictions of capitalism, including centrally the conflict between global economy and the nation-state system, led to world war. The only force capable of unifying Europe in a progressive manner is the working class, on the basis of a revolutionary program to overthrow capitalism”

Equal Money System?

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 14, 2010 by marlenlife

Why an Equal Money System

Within the realization of living in a World where Money exists as the enslavement point of each single human being – in terms of ‘having’ or ‘not having at all’ – we’ve come to the realization and conclusion that: if we want to change the world and how it currently exists = we have to change the way Money exists and functions within the World System.

The base foundation of the Equal Money System proposal  – which is now being established as the Equal Life Foundation- came through the process of  gathering and creating a group of beings that were simply trying to make a change within this world using, testing and trying out various methods such as philosophies, techniques of ‘self improvement’, beliefs, charity work, everything and all that we’ve been taught and indoctrinated within the system as being ‘capable’ of doing in terms of ‘helping others’, ‘making the world a better place’ –

But! in the end as we all encountered ourselves and gathered as a group of beings with the same ‘Self-Interest’ point of making a ‘change’ in this world, bettering our lives, bettering this world in any and all ways possible through Desteni -where the Principle of Equality is broadly and explicitly explain with regards to who we are as this reality and world and what needs to be done – it was realized that, the change has to begin within ourselves as a process of Self Honesty which implies being able to start living as an Equal to All/Everything/Everyone in this world which inevitably leads to seeing that the way we’ve placed ‘value’ and ‘worth’ upon ourselves as a personality, upon the things in and of this world as ‘goods’ and ‘properties’ and the value that we’ve placed towards people in relation to ‘who they are’ towards ourselves, we realized that the separation of this world exists as the value-system that we’ve accepted as ‘how things are’ and ‘how much they cost’, ‘how much value they have’ – within this, we see that it is the beginning of the inherent accepted separation existent in this world: Value – as ‘More than’ others, as ‘less than’ others and defining/limiting/adapting ourselves according to such ‘value’ that we’ve accepted as real the moment that we came into this world.

So, we realized it makes Complete Common-Sense to stop the separation that Money as the ‘Value’ that’s being given as ‘power’ as ‘more’ than who we are to Equate this World to Life itself – meaning, making Money not the ‘Value’ of ‘power’ as ‘more’ than ourselves, but the Equalizing Factor of Ourselves as Everything as Equals as Life – this is the point where all factors meet again in an Equalized way – we’ve been accepting Money as that which consumes us, as that which enslaves us, as that which ends up killing ourselves and life itself the moment that we don’t ‘live’ as Life, but we ‘live’ in a Survival Mode – this is how Money exists at the moment, playing ‘God’ and deciding who lives and who dies.

 

This has to STOP – and thus, it is why we as individuals around the world have found ourselves in a Common-Ground place where we are Standing up Individually yet as a Group to promote, speak, explain, make videos, documents, open forums and blogs as ourselves within the process of realizing what it will actually entail to create an Equal Money System to Benefit All Life Equally – at last! The final way to stop the system that we’re currently living in to run rampant to an inevitable collapse is establishing this Equal Money System where we can all give each other what we want for ourselves, what we’ve been ‘seeking’ for ourselves – a unconditional well-beingness way of life that considers everyone as equals, within equal rights to the basics to live, within Equal Rights to develop themselves into the full potential of what we as human beings in Self Honesty living within the Principle of Equality can be and become –

 

The Equal Money System will be set in the following years wherein we’ll be placing, establishing and directing the foundation for the children to come – WE realize that we might not see the full completion of the system while on Earth – yet, setting the stepping stones is what we are Here for.

 

We will not stop till we see an Equal Money System and an Equal Labor System and a general Equalization of all relationships on Earth as Life in place – this is what we stand for, this is who we are and we will do this till it is done.

 

Join the Equal Life Foundation to Support Each Other as ONE.

 

I am ONE Vote for WORLD Equality – Equal Money for ALL
