I have been drifting the last several weeks, torn between keeping my obligations to write on this blog and also trying to figure out what to write that someone else hasn’t already written about. Somehow, I got tired of exposing and questioning what others talk or write about our current reality in terms of history, changes and what is to come.
Honestly, any reality is relative to the person living it and anything I write can be debated or debacled; whatever you the reader feels is your current state of mind, thought, feeling or knowledge.
There exists only one truth and that is mine. If you fell, broke your leg and lived to tell me about it, it’s still your truth and my belief if I choose to believe it. Your truth can never be mine, therefore; everything that is happening on this planet or around this planet is not everyone’s truth, only to the person experiencing it.
All I have been doing is sharing mine and hoping you will become a believer of my truth, so I asked myself: “Why do I need you to believe my truth?”
I’m changing the focus and theme of this blog, but before I go into why, bare with me.
It’s time we re-defined prosperity and abundance, extreme wealth and good fortune. Although all these terms basically mean similar things, they don’t.
What is wealth? does wealth stand for millions or billions in a bank account? Isn’t wealth a relative term, does it not mean something different to each one of us?
A buddhist monk living in a temple and depending on villagers with a good crop season will say he lives in abundance;which may be true for him.
The Ultra Rich don’t brag about their good fortunes anymore, in fact they try to hide every aspect of their lives because they know most of that wealth was not earned morally or ethically. They no longer talk about how they work hard to earn a living because times have changed.
I’m not saying every wealthy person today is immoral or corrupt, but let’s face it, most of the people working today on this planet are working for minimum wage or less, earning far less than they need to exist on; so you can say that most of the wealthy people are behaving immorally and unethically.
It’s not a secret anymore that 1% of the population own 99% of US, the cat is out of the bag; and if you think you are doing good at work, stop lying to yourself. Unless you own your own company or work for yourself, classify yourself as a paid SLAVE but by the time you “pay” for everything you need to survive, there is nothing left. You are given the illusion that you are getting paid for your work but in essence “they” lend you a bit of money that you use to “pay” for your living expenses. In reality you are a slave, unpaid, overworked and once you can’t contribute to their wealth, you are discarded into a pension that can’t pay the rent let alone provide a nice holiday once a year.
This is your stark reality, if you get up each day to go to work for someone or look for work, you’re a SLAVE.
I like to think I’m FREE, although I’m still into the roots of slavery because I have to “pay” sales tax, property tax and car insurance”, I don’t go to work for anyone therefore have regained my dignity.
This morning while sitting on my deck, drinking coffee and admiring the labor of love garden below me; I started to think about how rich I felt. Just by being able to sit on my deck, not even worry about what day it is, absorb the beauty around me without thinking about how I was going to pay my bills or how to cover my mortgage payment.
So I started thinking about all the people I know here, all that have a home, have some kind of income, grow their own food and one by one pictured them standing in front of me answering my question: “How are you?”. As each image scrolled by, I could hear each one of them answering with very similar answers:” I could be better, life is tough, I’m sick and tired of this crap, don’t have enough, can’t pay bills, life is getting expensive, I’m sick and have cancer etc”.
All of their answers were selfish ones, albeit I did ask them a selfish question, the answers were negative and not one person I know has ever answered with “I am great, life is great”. I realized that none of them showed an inkling of caring and compassion for others, that didn’t feel an ounce of gratitude for what they had. I realized they were not aware how fortunate they were because these people live well by today’s standards. They don’t have mortgages because their homes are inherited from parents/ancestors. They all have a piece of land to grow food, all have some sort of income/pension, albeit it’s not enough according to them, but hey, they are not hungry or homeless.
That alone in our world today is wealth.
No matter how much material wealth you think you have means nothing if you have to go and work for someone to maintain that lifestyle you want.
It was not/never designed to work that way. This planet, our mother Earth provided us with everything when we were created.
From what I have read and learned over the years, we are the only planetary civilization that has to “pay” to live on this planet. Ok, I’m sure you know all this, you say: “What’s your point?”.
My point is that we need to expand our consciousness to include neighbors, community and rest of the planet in our thoughts starting the moment we wake up and open our eyes. In other words, rather than waking up in the morning and thinking about what you must do, think about all those that don’t have homes, that go to sleep hungry, that are as you awaken from your soft warm bed; sinking in rickety ships escaping war and poverty.
My wealth (spiritual) and a abundance isn’t something I brag about, but it serves a reason in this story because despite living in it, it doesn’t fulfill me completely because those around me are not experiencing the same as I am.
There is no balance, no fairness, not one aspect of our lives or this planet is balanced. Sure, it’s nice to live in my abundance. I’m not talking about being money abundant. My partner and I have incomes we derive from self employment, off the grid without registering what we do, (it’s still possible in Croatia), but we can choose when we want to work. Without any debts we can sleep well knowing we’re not going to get evicted from our home and when we feel we need more money, we choose to work. Such as now, we are finally completing construction projects that should have been done when we built our home, but we used up all the money to build the house and chose to complete it in phases.
Abundance is having all that you need and being able to pay for what you need.
Whenever I feel I need more money, I think and say it and always in gratitude; and it comes. This is my wealth, this for me is being rich, is being situated well; it’s called a worry free life.
Problem is, when I leave my house and socialize in the village, I return home drained from people parasites indoctrinated in a material world where it’s never enough, never good, where the kids have to have something because the neighbor’s kids have it. They are never healthy, never positive, never grateful, never considerate or passionate about WHY they exist.
All it takes is “thinking” about all those on our planet, the mothers watching their child cry from hunger, those huddling in shelters because war destroyed their communities, because nobody is thinking about them, co-habitating with them in consciousness.
We have become/and are selfish humans, focused on creating our own miseries and then blaming it on TPTB or our governments for our states of existence.
Open your eyes, if you have a roof over your head and have bread at home to make toast, you’re rich. If you can afford a magazine or a fast food dinner; you rock because many people on the other side of the planet can’t even afford a dirty bucket to get drinkable water, consider yourself wealthy today in this world of wars/arms/destruction and if you’re not doing anything to change this, then you deserve everything you get.
Instead of waiting for something to happen on this planet, start doing something to change it. This is not YOUR life alone, it’s not YOUR future alone, it belongs to ALL of us and we need to start changing it for everyone, not just for ourselves because we’re part of it. We created the mess we are in, simply by not doing anything.
The wars are spreading like a fast spreading virus, it’s spreading now in my region as well. It was to be expected that they would re-ignite the balkans to start war against Russia. It WILL come to you because of the Law of Nature works that way, Karma works that way, you are not just a human, you are a part or piece of humanity, you can’t separate yourself or isolate yourself. What goes around comes around.
As of today, this blog will change it’s focus. It will be about presenting humanity in it’s rawest and truest form. This blog will be about our brothers and sisters, giving them a voice because they don’t have electricity let alone internet to let the world know how horrific their lives are. It might scare the shit out of you to be told you are just as responsible for the misery in the world, that’s fine, you can go away and live your slavery life and paying taxes to feed the war machine. It’s your choice, but I am sick and tired of debating gurus and predictions, gods and saviors, light workers and angels. They are not COMING, they are already here disguised as humanity and waiting for us to wake up.
I have always stated that we are the ones we are waiting for. There is no external force, no external god, no external savior that is going to change our plight. It is up to us, it is when we say we have had enough and start doing something about it. Sure, we are doing something but not enough of us are. Too many of you are still going to work everyday afraid of not being able to pay your mortgage or buy food in the house, but if you don’t go to work collectively, the 1% have no production and lose money every minute you are not working. It takes a mass awakening process, but I am going to do one thing for sure and that is to bring out your anger and rage at allowing the death and destruction by not doing enough.
It’s time to see the world without the rose colored glasses, it’s time to face our worse enemies inside of us and realize that we are all in this together.
We all have the same rights to Peace and Prosperity. Each one of us by divine right doesn’t need to earn that right, we simply were given this right upon our creation. We were all created equally, we must all stand together as one and help those that can’t help themselves.
Peace and Love
