Why We Can’t Change the World Without Placing Ourselves in the Shoes of Another: DAY 272

March 12, 2014 in Anna's Journey to Life

1880492233 11619f714a o Why We Cant Change the World Without Placing Ourselves in the Shoes of Another: DAY 272“A human being is a part of a whole, called by us “universe”, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest… a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.” – Albert Einstein

Placing oneself ‘in the shoes of another’ is something we often emphasize within the Desteni Group. In academic psychology the term used is ‘empathy’, the ability to feel for another or to imagine how another is experiencing themselves and then acting accordingly for example within compassion towards another. However, within the context of how we’re applying this principle in the Desteni group it means so much more and is actually a core skill that that is necessary for each of us to develop to become dignified human beings that care about one another on a real and tangible level – and thus can make a difference in this world.

When we place ourselves in the shoes of another, we can look at how we would have experienced ourselves had we been in the situation that they are in. When looking for example at animals being abused or people living in impoverished areas without clean water, through applying the principle of placing ourselves in the shoes of another, we can see clearly how we would have not wanted to be in their shoes and therefore realize that it makes no sense to accept for them to exist in this situation either.

Now – within observing how people look at one another, we have a tendency of believing that we’re placing ourselves in the shoes of another and thus seeing who they are, when in fact we’re doing the exact opposite.  We are placing others in our shoes, which has the effect that we don’t get to understand or see reality from their perspective but instead distance ourselves from them. We do this even further through judging others based on our own standards or habits. An example of this is when we say: “Well if I had been her I wouldn’t have done that. I would have done this instead.” Such a statement is actually quite redundant and only serves for the ego to uplift itself in seeing itself as superior to another from a stance of a self-righteous judgment. It’s the same when we for example say: “I simply can’t understand why people would do something like this” or “Why can’t he just do it this way?” where we again define what others do and who they are only through referencing our own (limited) perception of reality.

As is evident from the examples above, when we place others in our shoes, we often tend to do so from a starting-point of judgment, blame and self-righteousness for example within a context of seeing our ‘moral values’ as better than others – where we, in the act of distancing them from ourselves in our minds, uplift our own egos so that we can feel better about ourselves. But what also happens when we do this is that we completely miss seeing other people for who they are, because we only see them based on who we believe ourselves to be. Because of this it becomes impossible to assist and support others to change or expand themselves, let alone ourselves. Within this, what also tends to happen is that we place information, like things that has worked for us in our lives as ‘universal’ and ‘generally applicable’ for everyone. This could be a certain diet or a health regime or a way to tackle an addiction. So we might say: “You should definitely do this, it totally worked for me” or “It’s super easy to stop this addiction, what are you talking about?” without considering the other person’s unique situation and the process that they’re walking where they might face points in a different way than we did.

So how do we place ourselves in the shoes of another?

Let’s use the example of placing ourselves in the shoes someone living in an area without clean water. This person might have to walk several hours every day to get to a place with clean water. If we use the approach of placing them in our shoes we might say that: “oh well that’s not so bad, I’m fit and that would give me more time to exercise if I had 2 hours to walk every day.” We might see it this way if we for example are a young male who goes to the gym a couple of times a day and who has a stressful job. So when we imagine walking through the bushes to get water, it looks like a really nice thing to do compared to our life. But what we may not consider is for example that the person walking to get the water is a pregnant woman or an old man with severe arthritis that hasn’t been treated because there’s no medical aid around. We may also not consider that since this person is forced to walk several hours to fetch water every day it is because they have no access to money or work. Because otherwise they could simply take their car to the nearest shop and buy bottled water ‘like everyone else’. We may also not consider how the people in the village perhaps have already been drinking their own contaminated water causing their children to be born with birth defects, making the long walk to fetch the clean water even more important. This is obviously merely an example to show how, when we place ourselves in the shoes of others we must consider the specific situation and conditions they are in. It is unfortunately very often that we tend to see things only from our own perspective, for example when it comes to the division of wealth in the world, where we can easily justify why some people are poor because we see them as lazy – when in fact we have no idea what their life is like. So when we practice placing ourselves in the shoes of another we can begin by looking at their physical conditions and get the information necessary for us to effectively see things from their perspective.

Now – in the context of for example placing ourselves in the shoes of someone in our immediate reality or someone whose life might look very similar to ours, we can also expand the dimensions we look at to the inner experiences a person may be feeling. We can obviously also do that in the example above, but when it is someone living in a completely different environment than ours, there’s the risk that we again place them in our shoes instead of placing ourselves in their shoes, simply because we only have our own point of reference in the world to look through. So here we require walking a deconstruction process through which we expand our perspective to come to understand our own preconceived ideas about the world and the things we take for granted. Because even if we were to go to the impoverished area, we might actually not see how others experience their life because our entire scope of perception is so entrenched in our own preconceptions about reality. So to us an impoverished area might look ‘exotic’ or ‘quaint’ and we fail to see the real lives of real people.

When we look at placing ourselves in the shoes of another whether with regards to their physical condition or with regards to their mental state or emotional experiences, we are looking at two different dimensions: one the one hand we’re looking at the individual’s unique history and the things they’ve gone through in their life for example, but on the other hand we are also looking at patterns of mental development (such as personalities) that are actually the same for all human beings. This could be anything from the thoughts we think, to how we handle crisis situations. There is thus a baseline of identical responses that all human beings share and then there is our ‘personal spin’ that we put on it.

What this means is that we cannot effectively place ourselves in the shoes of another on a mental or emotional level if we haven’t walked a process of understanding our own minds. We cannot recognize or identify that which we haven’t seen within ourselves. Furthermore, let’s say that I throughout my life have developed an intense reaction towards dogs with memories of being bitten haunting me causing me to have an extremely fearful and negative relationship to dogs. I would not be able to place myself in the shoes of someone who loves dogs in this context. Because I would be so completely immersed in my own personal experience that I wouldn’t be able to see things from another person’s point of view. I would therefore again be placing them in my shoes instead of placing myself in theirs.

One of the benefits of being able to see things from another person’s perspective is that we will be able to communicate much more effectively with the people we encounter in our world and reality and miscommunication will be less likely to happen. But even more so, we will be able to assist others as we have assisted ourselves. The more we walk our process, the more we get to know and understand the mind and the patterns through which it functions and operates, the more we will be able to place ourselves in the shoes of others. The more self-honest we are, the more we will be able to also assist others in becoming self-honest, because when they speak or when we read their words, we will be able to recognize the lies they tell themselves, because we know these lies from ourselves in utmost detail and specificity. The more we work with transcending and taking responsibility for our own minds, the more we will be able to assist others to do the same. And this is because all minds are virtually identical. The only difference is the personal story of each individual, but even then, the more we get down to the nitty-gritty of our mental patterns and personalities, the more we will see that we are all essentially exactly the same. So when we assist others it is important to consider both the general mental patterns and the unique personal history. We can even apply the principle of placing ourselves in the shoes of others when it comes to experiences that we might not have had in our own lives. So if you’re talking to a drug addict and you have never been addicted to drugs yourself, it doesn’t necessarily mean that you cannot place yourself in their shoes. Because you can for example look at the general patterns involved with addictions or see that you’ve participated in a pattern of escapism that you now recognize in another.

The application of placing ourselves in the shoes of another is an important tool in the process of changing the world to a place of compassion and equality. Because as can be seen from the examples above, we currently exist in separation from each other, each only having their own personal experience as a point of reference in the world, like a bubble of self-interest. Seldom do we consider the perspectives of others and we live our lives as though they are completely disconnected from the lives of everyone else, not recognizing the interdependency of our lives on this planet.

Placing ourselves in the shoes of other as a directive application is a way that we can start seeing the interconnectedness of our life with everyone else’s and we can begin living according to the principle of doing onto others as we would have be done onto us. If we would not want to have to walk 2 hours every day to carry water, it makes no sense to accept it for someone else, even if that acceptance is tacit and passive in the sense that we simply don’t care even though we might not actively be forcing them into such a position. As such when seeing how such living conditions are unacceptable we realize that we have a responsibility to change them because we understand that it could have just as well been us. And this doesn’t mean to now pack a bag and go on a mission to change someone else’s life, because that simply isn’t practical. Therefore what is important is to establish a political change where the principle of equality is implemented into the very structures of our society so that we create a system based on these principles. This is what we are doing with the Living Income Guaranteed System.

To Care for others, to be compassionate with others in such a way that we are able to assist with improving their quality of life at a practical level, we must understand how they experience their lives, physically as well as mentally and to do that we must understand ourselves. This is what we are doing with Desteni, the Desteni forum and the Desteni I Process courses.

The Redundancy of Confession before Change: DAY 179

March 3, 2013 in Anna's Journey to Life

 The Redundancy of Confession before Change: DAY 179A couple of days ago I posted a blog about shame. The day after I wrote about the doubt I’ve been experiencing after posting that first blog. Now yesterday a point was brought to my attention with regards to how it has been found that when you announce your goals you are less likely to achieve them because you’d then already experienced a sense of achievement. As such it has been suggested to keep one’s goals to oneself until one is certain that one stands within living out these goals and can then share the process one has walked so others may find assistance and support through that. Now – I’ve done this when I stopped smoking, deliberately also so as to not involve anyone else in my decision and to make sure that I simply walk the point by myself. This I found was very effective and I recommend it to anyone who is standing in the process of making such decisions of setting a goal or making a change in one’s life; to if/as it is practical walk the point of change firstly with oneself. Why I am saying “if/as it is practical” is because there can/could be situations where one for whatever reason would require involving others and so it is merely to suggest that it is not a point set in stone. Obviously one has to consider it in context to one’s life in general and the circumstances one is facing.

Right before I posted this blog about shame the other day, I was hesitant towards pushing the ‘upload’ button and I considered whether it had perhaps been best to walk the point with myself alone. I decided to publish the blog from amongst other points a starting-point of wanting to ‘come forward’ and as I was writing the blog I even thought about this point that has come up several times, the ‘need’ to confess. And so what is confession really? This is what I’ve understood so far: Catholics go to church to confess their sins and are ‘punished’ with having to say Hail Mary fifty times or something. Then they’re cleansed of their sins and can go out with ‘good conscience’. But the odds are that most of them commit sin again and as such the confession was absolutely redundant and even took part in allowing the person to keep sinning because it tacitly endorsed it. In this post on a website called ‘Catholic online‘ the purpose with confession is described:

“Be truly sorry for your sins. The essential act of Penance, on the part of the penitent, is contrition, a clear and decisive rejection of the sin committed, together with a resolution not to commit it again, out of the love one has for God and which is reborn with repentance. The resolution to avoid committing these sins in the future (amendment) is a sure sign that your sorrow is genuine and authentic. This does not mean that a promise never to fall again into sin is necessary. A resolution to try to avoid the near occasions of sin suffices for true repentance. God’s grace in cooperation with the intention to rectify your life will give you the strength to resist and overcome temptation in the future.”

In 1 John 2:1 it says: “My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. But if anyone does sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.”

1352002 861 574 The Redundancy of Confession before Change: DAY 179See? It doesn’t make any sense. Because if god is the one that has created you, he has created sin or has made the decision that some actions are sinful. So why do you then need to go to god for forgiveness? How can sin and forgiveness exist simultaneously? What I’ve seen is that confession means that one is in separation from the actual point one is apparently confessing about. Because one is confessing so that god can forgive one for one’s sins, which would place one in a position of inferiority to god as though one is unable to judge one’s own actions and change oneself according to what is best and what is not best. This actually correlates quite well with how I experienced doubt after having posted the blog on shame in how I was waiting for ‘confirmation’ almost as whether I would be forgiven or not. But as we know: there is no forgiveness but self-forgiveness. Just like people don’t change after going to confession in church. It doesn’t work because they did not stand as the starting-point of their own actions in understanding in full detail why they did what they did and as such in taking self-responsibility enabling themselves to in fact change. So this is no different if I write a confession in my blogs. And I saw that I had had this starting-point of proving myself and forcing myself through to the point of shame. I’ve spent days trying to figure out why I don’t feel real shame and I simply have not been able to force it through my body. And what I’ve come to see is: It is what it is. Meaning, what is here is what is here. So I don’t encompass a profound change through which I bring forth change. That is certainly fucked up. I can see that. At least I can see that.

So as I wrote in the blog about shame, the shame point is for me a point of return to the darkness of myself, a form of reset in determining where I stand, how I stand and who I stand as. I considered taking the blog down again, considering how it was not completely clear to me as something I had walked with myself before sharing it. But I decided to leave it up and to instead now share what I’ve faced and walked since posting the blog. And I will return to myself and walking the points with myself and come and share when appropriate to do so here. So what I mean to say is that it is not so that what I posted was ‘wrong’. I simply see that I require being more attentive towards which writings I publish and which I don’t, so that I make sure that what I do post is assisting for me and for others. And I see that I also require walking this point of confession in more detail as well as keep investigating the point of shame. As I walk the relationship series, I might share some of these writings as well as I walk through the points.  So in my next blog post I will begin walking self-forgiveness on the relationship point of feeling awkward around boys that I started writing out on DAY 176

Until then…

Travelling at The Speed of Light of the Mind: DAY 160

December 31, 2012 in Anna's Journey to Life

agostino arrivabene 011 Travelling at The Speed of Light of the Mind: DAY 160“The longest journey is the journey inwards. Of him who has chosen his destiny, Who has started upon his quest for the source of his being.”

– Dag Hammarskjold

This is the first of my blog posts writing out the Mind Movement Character. I’ve experienced resistance to writing it could so that is cool because I show myself that it is for sure relevant to write out. I am writing the point out in a detailed structure here so as to get to the bottom of myself because this is a pattern/point/personality that I’ve been writing about extensively since I started walking this process in 08-09 and it is to some extent still a mystery to me. It is interesting because I’ve been so focused on the Fear of Being Here and then with this Q and A I shared in my last blog I came to see – once again in greater detail – how it is actually not a fear but a desire and a holding-onto. So I am going to reverse the point and instead of looking at the fear of being here, I will look at the desire to constantly move myself.

The first point I will be walking is the thoughtdimension. For context, here is the introduction blog post I wrote where I’ve listed all the dimensions of the Character: The Mind Movement Character – Introduction: DAY 159

Character Dimensions

Thought:

Seeing myself shooting forward through the universe away from darkness and stillness into light and sound

“As much horror as we have always created, we are a species that keeps moving forward, seeing new sights in new ways, and enjoying the journey.”

Martha Beck

resize.php  Travelling at The Speed of Light of the Mind: DAY 160Self-Forgiveness

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to exist and define myself according to an image of seeing myself shooting through the universe in an explosion of light (there’s no sound in the image so it is more an image of sound) that I’ve defined as excitement and exploration

I listened to an interview today from Anu where he talks about how one of the reasons one does not change and stand up absolutely is because of holding onto a hope. He then came with some suggestions like people hoping for Jesus or Aliens to come and save the planet. But my hope, I realized, is that I can still get skinny, catch the perfect man, have children and a successful and have a happy life. It was utterly absurd to see in the context of what Anu was talking about, that my inner world is so small, so limited and narrow. Anyways so this fit quite well with this analogy of shooting through the universe, because it could be an analogy of sperm shooting through the vagina. It could also be me shooting through ‘life’ and then ‘life’ is the universe with all it’s colors and sounds, like a consumer universe fantasy. And so in the image it is like I look back over my shoulder and see darkness and then I shoot myself out into the universe towards the light. Another similar version is that I am shooting off but it is with this constant awareness of running away from something. And you know something interesting as well, is that there’s no end goal or point. It is ‘all about the journey’. Lol

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to hold within and as myself an image of shooting through the universe which when I recall and activate within and as I myself I experience excitement and myself as aroused within the fast paced movement of myself in light and an image of sound

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to attach a positive energetic experience to the image of shooting through the universe at high speed in light and sound not seeing, realizing or understanding how getting caught in the light and the excitement is in fact a deliberate diversion from and polarity to the opposite as the starting-point of myself as darkness, silence towards which I’ve attached a negative energetic experience based on which I had to create a polar opposite because the positive and the negative are interdependent

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to live based on the image of shooting through the universe at rapid speed, sound and light as a positive connecting it to the words ‘journey’, ‘discovery’ ‘exploring’ and ‘free’ in particular as the words that I made religious doctrine within and as myself as words I HAD TO follow and attempt to become through living the motion of constantly shooting through the universe

(I will continue with self-forgiveness on this thought image and how I came to define my life according to this image in my next blog post)

Thanks for walking-with.

 Travelling at The Speed of Light of the Mind: DAY 160

Who I am as a Christian: DAY 5

April 19, 2012 in Anna's Journey to Life

shutterstock 54771055 Who I am as a Christian: DAY 5Here am investigating the label of “being a Christian” and “Christianity” as how it has existed and played a significant role in the world. I have not in any way been brought up as a Christian myself. My mother however was brought up in a quite strict Christian home and the reason the family allegedly became Christians was because they were in past generations partaking too much in card-games and drinking and in that risking to lose their farms in gambling. It was then my  great grandmother put a stop to all the “sinning” and they all became devoted and serious Christians. My mother then in her generation, stepped out of the church and brought me up strictly atheist. She would always say “there is more between heaven and earth but I want nothing to do with it.” For her the church had been a oppressor lead by her own mother, that forced her to suppress her self-expression and feel ashamed and guilty. So she opted out. I was christened and had a confirmation as part of the traditional protestant ceremonies, but none of it was done in the spirit of faith of any form.

As I started participating with Desteni and started unraveling the patterns and personalities I have become, I could see how the point of Christianity and being a Christian culturally was permeating me pervasively. Whether I would like it or not – I was a Christian. So when I here in this writing investigate myself as a Christian and as Christianity, it is based on this subconscious participation (meaning where I was not aware of it, but still lived it as it was passed onto me culturally and in the family) as well as the Christianity that I have seen playing out within and between human beings on earth – seeing it as myself and investigating how I have allowed myself to become a Christian. So I am walking this point for all, from here as myself. This is thus in no way meant to slander Christians or Christianity, but to expose the true nature and purpose of Christianity and to discover how Christianity can be redefined in way so that it can be lived and applied as what is Best for All. If any reactions come up, I suggest to investigate those for oneself as they provide a clue to the lies that we have told ourselves to not have to face the true nature of who and what we have become. What is cool about walking the point of Christianity from this perspective, is that I in fact have little personal experience with it – although for the points of judgment I do have, I will too forgive myself. But otherwise I will look at Christianity as it exists in general and as such might be able to see points that those who have had a more close relationship with Christianity might not immediately see, exactly as they might see points I do not see and as such we bring back all the “missing pieces” of how we have created and designed ourselves into and as that institution and relationship that is Christianity and the personality accompanying as “being a Christian.” – So this is merely a layer of Christianity. All the layers must be opened up; exposed and purified until all aspects of Christianity and being a Christian stands within the living application of what is best for all Life. I invite all to partake in this Journey of Life to discover the construct and label that is Christianity and being a Christian.

I forgive myself that I have not accepted and allowed myself to see, realize and understand that the cross is not a symbol of unity or holy sacrifice, but that it is a symbol of violence, separation and conflict

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to place all my faith and hope for humanity in the resurrection of Jesus Christ

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to believe that Jesus speaks to me in my mind, instead of seeing, realizing and understand that the only one that exists in my mind is me and that I have created the character of Jesus in separation of and from myself

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to believe in an afterlife consisting of hell and heaven, instead of seeing realizing and understanding that hell is here on earth and that earth could be a living heaven for all, if I dedicate myself to do all and everything possible to ensure that what is best for all life become the living principle within which I live and to stop all preoccupation with hoping for a better life in the after life

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to fear going to hell and to hope that I will go to heaven, instead of seeing, realizing and understanding that hell is already here on earth and that the heaven I hope to go to when I die, is not real

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to believe in the bible as a holy book and to believe that if I follow all the rules and doctrines and words as they are stated in the bible, that I will go to heaven

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to place blind faith and trust in the bible and that what is written in the bible is in fact the word of god instead of questioning for myself whether the words of the bible are standing for what is best for all life or not and such decide for myself if I will live those words or not

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to define myself as a Christian in the belief that I have chosen Christ and the faith in god and the church on my own volition and in my own free will, instead of seeing, realizing and understanding that I have been programmed and brain-washed to place all worth, value, faith and trust outside myself, within seeing that that was what my parents did and as such to please them and to ensure my own survival, I submitted myself unconditionally to the belief in god, Christ, the church and the bible without ever asking or questioning this for myself

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to believe that I simply within defining myself as a Christian, are saved from the consequences as suffering, abuse and inequality that is manifested here on this earth, by god as a reward for my blind obedience and in that never question how such a god could allow such atrocities to exist in the first place

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to believe that Jesus died for my sins and that I am inherently a sinner – yet at the same time believe that I am created in the image and likeness of god and such not allow myself to see the direct contradictions and flaws that are evident in the Christian doctrine

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to believe in and blindly trust in the righteousness of god to punish humanity for sinning, when in fact, sin could not exist without god creating the possibility for sinning in the first place and such that god is the creator of sin and thus responsible for sin and thus punishing humanity as his own creation for what he has created

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to fear the wrath of god and to fear being sent to hell and forever burn in the flames separated forever more from god – instead of seeing, realizing and understand that this physical world as this earth, is already burning in flames and will exist as a hell until I stand up and take self-responsibility, realizing that I am the creator that I have separated myself from, into and as

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to create, manifest and design the concept of “god” and “god” as the ruler of the kingdom of earth, heaven and hell – deliberately so as to justify my own separation from and of myself and so as to justify my own abdication of and from myself as the creator and so to project myself as good and evil onto an after-life that I must create blind faith to believe in, because I cannot go there without dying and such I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to trap and enslave myself to live and exist in a life of anticipation, waiting, hoping and fearing for the after-life, not living here in any way what so ever because I believed that the after-life was the real life

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to justify why I have a life with comforts, money, resources and earthly pleasures, by making-up the belief that I am blessed by god and such explain to myself in my own mind why it is righteous and acceptable that I have while others do not have, in the belief that I am special, chosen by god, a good Christian and as such that those who do not have what I have must be bad and that it is therefore fair and just that they are suffering

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to exist within and a polarity relationship between being good and being bad, believing myself to be inherently a sinner and thereby justify for myself when I commit a “sin” that I could not help myself because I was “born that way” and within that create an experience of guilt  and shame that I believe that through punishing myself before god, I have redeemed myself and hope that god will therefore have mercy with me

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to blame the devil for my “sins” and as such justify why  I have allowed myself to “sin” and as such allow myself to continuing “sinning” by making the excuse that I am “weak” and that I cannot take responsibility for myself, because what I do and who I am is the responsibility of “god” or “the devil”

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to project the responsibility for my actions onto two points of polarity as “good” and “evil” outside separate from me, as “the devil” and “god” and within and through that have justified the total and complete abdication of self-responsibility

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to believe that god is almighty and good and that if evil exists then it is the fault of the human that has allowed itself to be seduced by  “the devil”, instead of seeing that this makes no sense, as god would always hold the primary responsibility for what is created

I forgive myself that I, within creating the concept of god to justify my separation from and of myself, have created the concept of “free will” and a such abdicated all self-responsibility for myself as the creator, by making-up the story that god in his goodness gave humanity free will to test their faith in him

I forgive myself that I have not accepted and allowed myself to see, realize and understand that “original sin” can only be created by god and as such that only god can be responsible for the creation of “original sin” and within that I forgive myself that I have not accepted and allowed myself to see, realize and understand how I have created both the concept of god and the concept of “original sin” to separate myself from myself there as the creator of what is here

I forgive myself that I have not accepted and allowed myself to realize that the concept of “free will” cannot exist together with the concept of the punishment of god as the punishment of god indicates conditioning and consequence while free will stands within the concept of no consequence. As such, I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to create and manifest myself within the definition Christianity as existing in the tension field between “free will” and conditioning, not ever seeing, realizing or understanding how I have trapped myself and deceived myself to be able to live without taking self-responsibility for myself as the creator of and as myself

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to believe that every story told in Christianity, tells the truth of what really happened and who and why and how we are here on earth, and within that never allow or dare myself to question or to find out for myself whether this is so

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to believe that god has created life to test his creation to determine who is worthy of living with him in heaven and to immediately wish and hope and want and desire to be the one that gets to live with god in heaven, never questioning why god would create existence as separate, why god would create the human as not good enough and as having to prove itself worthy to god, instead of simply creating a reality and an existence where all is perfect and there is no separation

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to make myself believe and trust in Christianity and in myself as a Christian out of fear, that if I don’t, I will go to hell and burn forever

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to fear that god could see everything I was doing and thinking and feeling and as such fear the punishment, wrath and judgment of god, yet at the same time experience and accept myself completely submitted to god and such accept myself as complete free of responsibility and consequence, within the belief that all is in the hands of god

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to believe that everything something good happens to me – especially when it comes to money – that I am blessed by god and such more than those who do not have money, instead of seeing, realizing and understanding that I only have money because I am born into a system, where I have been conditioned and programmed to have, while other do not have and that this system is the manifestation and consequence of my own separation of and from myself that I have justified through creating the construct, entity and belief in god as a creator outside separate from me

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to create the construct of god, to deliberately separate myself from myself as the creator

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to create the construct of polarity as heaven and hell as outside separate from me, specifically in the construct of the afterlife where I have no access and such separated myself from the responsibility and consequence of what I have accepted and allowed my creation to be and become

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to believe, that I, within the definition of myself as “a Christian” am a “good person” without ever questioning or considering what that would practically mean or entail – and how I have been existing in and as a polarity relationship in my mind with that I have judged as “bad” believing that if I practiced and believed enough in Christianity and in Christ and in god I could be or become good.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to believe that people believing in Christ, Christianity and god are good people and that people not believing in Christ, Christianity and god and the bible are bad people

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to fear that if I question my faith, belief and self-definition as “a Christian” that I will be bad, instead of realizing and seeing that “good” and “bad” are two sides of the same polarity that exists co-dependently and thus cannot exist without one another

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to believe in sin

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to believe that I am a sinner

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to believed that I have sinned when I allowed myself to deliberately abuse and cheat

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to believe in sin in and as a moral polarity relationship to sanctity

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to believe that I am a saint

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to desire to be a saint

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to define saints as good and positive and sinners as bad and negative

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to create a polarity relationship to, towards the words saint and sinner

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to define myself within and as a polarity relationship between the words saint and sinner

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to believe that my actions is what determines whether I will be accepted as life or not – and thereby interpret and understand “being accepted as life” as separate from me and as based on a Christian belief of redemption and tiding

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to justify suffering, abuse and war in the name of god

I forgive myself that I have not accepted and allowed myself to see, realize or understand that within the very justification of creating war in the name of god, I have contradicted my belief that god is all-loving and all-mighty

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to justify the suffering and abuse of children in the name of god

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to deliberately instill the fear of god in my children, to ensure that they would remain on what I believed to be “the righteous path” which in fact was nothing more than my own fear of god – hiding my own fear of facing myself as creator

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to believe and trust that everything that it says in the bible is true, because my parents told me so, because I trust my parents to speak the truth and to know everything there is to know about the world

I forgive myself that I have not accepted and allowed myself to consider, that my parents have been brainwashed exactly as I have been brainwashed to without question, accept the bible as the truth, within fearing that were I to question the bible, god, jesus and the church, I would have to question this entire reality and why and how it exists and I would be faced with myself as creator, in the realization that everything and all that is here, is my creation and responsibility and that there is nothing or no one “behind” this world or existence

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to believe, experience, define, accept and judge myself as superior within the label of being “a Christian” comparing myself to those that are not labeled or labeling themselves as “Christians” as inferior and less than me, judging them to be “heretics” and me to be “a child of god” and such believe that I have more right to exist, to live

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to create churches as places of worship using the money of poor people to create a shrine to worship god, when in fact god does not exist, except for as the manifestation of the justification of my separation of myself as creator

1 John 1:9

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to believe, hope, trust in the goodness of god and to believe that god will come or that god will send Jesus and that the nightmare and hell that is life on earth as it exists, will as if by divine intervention be uplifted and everyone will live happily ever after

Within this, I forgive myself that I have not accepted and allowed to question or investigate this belief or how I have created it within and as myself or what the consequences are of me waiting for god or Jesus to come and save me and humanity, while I do nothing but pray, go to church and live to survive and be “a good Christian”

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to believe that only god can forgive me and within accepting that as true, have abdicated all self-responsibility for myself here and thus disabled myself to not be able to change or correct myself, because I within this am submitted and subjected to that which I perceive to be god

I forgive myself that I have not accepted or allowed myself to see, realize or understand that “wicked ways”, “sinning” or “the devil” cannot exist without god’s direct creation, approval of and acceptance of these as real, because if god was not responsible he would not be almighty and then he would not be god

I forgive myself that  I have accepted and allowed myself to believe, that in order for me to be forgiven by god, I must repent, pay and feel guilty instead of seeing, realizing and understanding that this is not the way to take responsibility for what one have accepted and allowed and that any god that would demand this of his children, should not be trusted as we according to the belief, are created in his image and likeness

Luke 17:3-4

“Pay attention to yourselves! If your brother sins, rebuke him, and if he repents, forgive him, and if he sins against you seven times in the day, and turns to you seven times, saying, ‘I repent,’ you must forgive him.”

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to believe, that if I simply confess my sins and repent that I will be forgiven by god and within this not realize that I as such have justified the continuation of sinning, that I have allowed myself to continue sinning as long as I repent, confess and feel bad – and such that I have created this application of Christianity to justify acting in ways that are harmful, abusive, deceptive and not best for all

Matthew 6:12

“And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.”

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to believe, hope, have faith in and trust that if I forgive my debtors, my debt will be forgotten – instead of seeing, realizing and understanding that the practical manifestation of this point in the lives of human beings, is that those who make profit of others, are allowed by all to do so and that everyone is existing in debt because of it and in the peril and fear of not surviving that comes with it, thus enslaved to the debtors whom we believed we must forgive so as to stand favorable with god in the here-after

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to accept myself as in debt to god for having given me life

I forgive myself that  I have accepted and allowed myself to believe, accept and trust that I cannot and am not allowed to forgive myself in submitting myself to the belief that, that would be blasphemy against god, acting as if I am more than god, when in fact only god can forgive – instead of seeing, realizing and understand the flaw and lack of common sense in this belief, that god is the one that has created me as I exist and such it is in fact me who should forgive god for having created a flawed creation if the belief where to be real

Within this, I forgive myself that I have not accepted or allowed myself to see, realize and understand that the reason why I have not given myself the permission to forgive myself, is because I have separated Myself from myself as the creator and that I within self-forgiveness, stand up as the creator of and as myself and as such stop the separation of and as myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to exist in and as

I forgive myself that I have not accepted or allowed myself to realize that within taking self-responsibility for myself as creator of what is here, I give myself the gift of self-forgiveness, of giving myself back to myself

I forgive myself that  I have not accepted or allowed myself to realize that in forgiving myself, as in giving myself back to myself, I am standing up as creator and as such taking self-responsibility for myself as creation and thereby enabling myself to change what is here as hell on earth to heaven on earth, because I have given myself back the authority and direction over creation as the manifestation of myself as creator

Ephesians 5:1-33

“Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God. But sexual immorality and all impurity or covetousness must not even be named among you, as is proper among saints. Let there be no filthiness nor foolish talk nor crude joking, which are out of place, but instead let there be thanksgiving. For you may be sure of this, that everyone who is sexually immoral or impure, or who is covetous (that is, an idolater), has no inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God. …”

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to believe that the flesh of the human body, the animals, nature is inherently “bad”, “dirty”, “filthy”, “evil” and “dangerous” and within that have rejected and suppressed all things related to nature and the physical, in the belief that “the devil” had his grip in the physical and as such I feared that were I took allow myself to embrace the physical, sexually or otherwise, that I would fall out of God’s grace and as such be condemned

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to be disgusted, rejecting, punishing and separating myself from myself as a physical human female, within the belief that I am responsible for the original sin and the fall of man – instead of seeing, realizing and understanding why the aversion, perversion and taboo regarding nature, the female, the physical and sex has been created and impulsed by the propagators of Christianity, as myself to ensure that I remained enslaved to and as the delusion of myself as separate from myself as life here, equal and one

I forgive myself that I have not ever accepted or allowed myself to see, realize and understand that Christianity in its entirety have been created, with my direct and indirect permission, hand and approval, to deceive myself, as all of humanity, into waiting for something that never comes, into accepting a life of survival, war, abuse and suffering in the belief that if only “turn the other cheek” and prove myself worthy, that god WILL come – instead seeing, realizing and understanding that I have based my hope and my belief, on the fear that I am all there is, that we as human beings are alone here, that we are self-responsible for what is here, that no one is going to come and save us and that we have to sort ourselves out practically, physically, in self-honesty – taking self-responsibility for what is here as our own creation

Re-definition of “Good” and “Bad” as I have participated in and lived these words as an example of a Christian Polarity and how a word can be unraveled and purified to stand for what is best for all.

 Current allocation:

God and Bad are moral convictions, that as a compass tells me whether I have acted morally correct or morally incorrect. When I have done good, I am good. When I have done bad, I am bad. Thus, good and bad defines me as a moral being. Good and bad is what determines how I will be judged and weighed by “god” and thus determines whether I will go to hell or to heaven.

 Redefinition: Good and Bad.

 Realizations:

It is interesting to see that the definitions I have held of ”good” and ”bad” primarily has been the never definitions that specifically pertain to guilt and morality as being well or misbehaved, whereas the original words are more specifically descriptive, such as ”bad”: defile (making something sacred dirty)

So one of the original definitions of good is “unite” and “suitable” whereas bad is specifically defined  not in opposition to good but as something entirely different, in “defiling”.  So if “good” is a sounding as calling for god and “bad” is the defiling of something sacred, there are the secret mind definitions, of whatever I have through the self-religion I have created and participated in, as “good” and “bad”.  As can be seen in the definitions of “bad”, it also pertains to human characteristics, which fits with how I have defined “doing bad” as “being bad” – and thus taken the act of acting badly personally, emotionally and not seen the practical context of the words. I also see a definition immanent in the definitions about where “good” pertains to “godly” and where “bad” pertains to earthly, which can also be seen in how I have defined sex and bodily fluids as “bad.”

My conclusion is that how I have defined “good” and “bad” is based on morality, a morality that I have integrated into and as myself based on Christianity and self-religion according to my personal experiences of “doing bad” and “doing good”. Another interesting definition, is how “bad” in Danish means “Prayed” and how “good” sounds like calling for god, and then at the same time there is the word “banned” in “bad” as well. This indicates a point of separation where I perceive myself as already bad, yet in a position of attempting to become good (stop sinning, be redeemed and forgiven by good). Thus, good is acting in “god’s will” and “bad” is acting against “god’s will” but here “god” is partly the entire moral system that I have integrated into and as me, as well as the mind in itself and fear. Another point that is then seen in how I acted out this pattern is how I believed I could redeem bad behavior by being good. I also did not in that moment take my partner’s experience into consideration – all that existed was my fear of being bad, which actually originated from me exerting anger in judging my partner as having done something bad. So all in all, I was entirely enslaved to my idea and submission to “good” and “bad” in and as a religious relationship with/towards “god” in which there was no common sense consideration of practicality. And through the guilt I have created when having done something bad, I have sent myself into a time loop of emotional experiences and in fact abdicated self-responsibility within placing the point of “god” and “bad” in a relationship to something/someone as a “higher force” outside separate from me, instead of applying the corrective action to the practical point I see in self-honesty in and through and as which I have allowed myself to stand unaligned with what is best for all.

 Re-definition:

Good is when a point is functioning optimally and does not require immediate alignment as it stands for/within what is best for all

Bad is when a point is not functioning optimally and thus requires immediate alignment to what is best for all

When and as I see that I have accepted/defined/judged/experienced myself as “good” or “bad” within and as a positive/negative polarity relationship in separation of and from myself in a relationship with a “god point” as morality and fear in and as my mind – I stop. I breathe and I bring myself back here to consider the practicality of the situation/point I am standing before in seeing how I can effectively correct/change/align myself in and as my application to what is best for all.

I do not accept any form of morality or moral considerations that is not based on what is best for all.

Good and bad as polarity does not define me. When I have acted unaligned with what is best for all, I stand self-responsible for/as/within correcting and aligning myself to what is best for all.

I commit myself to investigate all aspects of Christianity and the belief in god and Jesus and to get to know exactly how I have created myself as Christianity and as the definition of myself as “a Christian”

I commit myself to take self-responsibility for the creation of and as myself as Christianity

I commit myself to in all ways see, realize, understand and live the practical correction within the realization that we as human beings are alone here, that we are self-responsible for what is here, that no one is going to come and save us and that we have to sort ourselves out practically, physically, in self-honesty – taking self-responsibility for what is here as our own creation

I commit myself to walk a process of living the words of Jesus Christ of “loving thy neighbor as thyself” and of “treating another as you would want to be treated” until all my actions, all my participation is aligned to these principles – the only principles of Christianity that is valid, because they stand aligned with what is best for all

What will END Jehovah’s Witnesses?

December 10, 2011 in Equal Money Blog

prayer surrender What will END Jehovahs Witnesses?I once heard a joke that went something like this: “A man died and went to heaven. As he knocked on the door to heaven, Sct. Peter opened the door and invited him in. Sct. Peter welcomed him to heaven and started showing him around. The man saw people sitting and drinking coffee and chatting, just like normal. They passed by a room and the man looked in. The people that was sitting in there waved hello The man thought that they looked perfectly normal. Sct. Peter said “oh yes, that is the muslims”. They continued down a hallway and came to a closed door. Sct. Peter said: “Listen, I am going to open this door and you can look in, but do UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES let the people know that you are there.” The man said: “why not?” and Sct. Peter replied: “Because they are Jehovah’s witnesses and they believe they are the only ones here.”

One of the primary beliefs of the Jehovah’s witnesses is the belief in armagedon as the end of the world as we know it. They also believe, hence the joke, that only those who give themselves to God (as the Jehovah’s witnesses) will be saved and be a part of a new world with heaven on Earth. The Jehovah’s witnesses outlook on the world is thus one of division, where there are only two kinds of people: the soon-to-be-saved people (themselves) and the profane and soon-to-be-doomed (everyone else).

In looking at why people subscribe to something like Jehovah’s witnesses, there are multiple and many complex, intersectional reasons – and at the same time, Jehovah’s witnesses are just like any other group or individual in the world that abdicates the total responsibility  for their lives by projecting it onto a elusive  creator-figure located in some ‘distant realm’ conveniently out of reach. Being a Jehovah’s witness makes the people that define themselves as “witnesses” feel safe. By belonging to a community such as the Jehovah’s witnesses, one does not have to be alone in the world and are supported  by the community to care for ones basic needs. If one however leave the community, one risk being ex-communicated and never again see one’s family or friends. By being a Jehovah’s witness, one  hand over one’s life to a “higher power” and through that never have to ask any questions or stand accountable for the consequences of their actions based on their beliefs. The same goes for the community ones live in.

These are then some of the primary reasons for why people participate in such communities –  however in the Jehovah’s witnesses community as also in other fundamentally religious communities and the 2012 movement, there is a further dimension of/as the belief in “the end of times” or armagedon. What this belief gives them, is a sense of “now” and an energetic excitement within knowing that the end is near. It is also because of the belief that the end is near, that they lay their life in the hands of god. Because, what do they have to lose? And ironically, the same goes the other way around – according to this belief, they have everything to lose if they did/do not subject themselves to god. Within the world constantly ending they can perceive what is here as unreal and irrelevant. They simply have to wait for the rest of the world to end and for them to ‘rise to the occasion.’

In an Equal Money System, there will be no Jehovah’s witnesses because in an Equal Money System there will be no reason to submit and subject ourselves to authorities outside, separate from ourselves. Our lives will not be so miserable that we literally have to hand ourselves over to a fictive savior-figure, to which the only security we have, is faith. Instead we will be supported – we will support ourselves – through a system of practical Equality, to stand up as self-authorities, as sovereign and equal citizens of Earth. The reason for this is that we in an Equal Money System, will be supported from the moment we are born with the basic necessities that each of us require; clean water, food, shelter and education.

Within this, we are all standing together as the point of support and self-authority. There is no need for ‘middle-men’ as God or church-leaders to decide who we are,  or where we are gonna go, because we have taken life into our own hands and stand together to ensure that what is best for all life, is implemented into and as our world-systems and societal institutions. Life is in our own hands and it is on our own feet that we will be walking a new world into manifestation, one step at a time. We do not require beliefs in armagedon or any other beliefs to fee alive or to postpone our self-responsibility for what is here – we are directing ourselves here and immediately take care of what is required to be done, so that all citizens, all Earthlings are ensured a life of dignity.

An Equal Money System will be the end of Jehovah’s witnesses because in an Equal Money System, we will simply all be witnesses of our own self-direction and self-creation of a world that is best for all. The people who were Jehovah’s witnesses because they did not know what else to do, because there were no alternatives, will simply be people, equally living here.

How to Live the Word of Jesus in a Time of War

April 11, 2011 in World Exposed Blog

 How to Live the Word of Jesus in a Time of WarThe Ivory Coast or Côte d’Ivoire sounds like a place where people have a lot of money, or at least a lot of Ivory. That is however not the case, because the country is appropriately named after the thousands of elephants that were killed  by man, for their tusk and their tusk alone- And in the Ivory Coast there is two men, two men who has made a lot of money on other people’s pain and who fight each other for the power of the people. It does not really matter who they are or even where they’re is from – because this takes place every day in all the countries of the world.

People are dying in the Ivory Coast.

This particular fight in the Ivory Coast is between two men and their followers and they are fighting because they both want to have power over the country and are killing people to get it.

“The violence in Duekoue happened last week, when Mr Outtara’s fighters moved south ousting Mr Gbagbo’s troops from large swathes of the country. Both sides have said the other was responsible.”[1]

People have no choice or possible actions to take than to both fight and accept one of these two assholes as their leader, or to run from their homes, their crops and their animals to survive as refugees – which are what thousands have already done.

To say that it is a fight between political ideologies and that at least one of them has the people of the Ivory Coasts best interest at heart, is delusional. Because anyone that is willing to allow people to Die and starve, so that he can have all the power – does not do so with political motives. It seems like the word political and politician has become an accepted synonym with power-hungry psychopaths and dictators that, as long as they’re wearing suits and speaking the politician-lingo, are considered acceptable as leaders by the international community.

The incapability of the International Community How to Live the Word of Jesus in a Time of War

The UN that is one of the only International organizations licensed to act on behalf of humanity as the “international community” has “stepped in asking the internationally-backed president, to kindly investigate why hundreds of people are being killed by his supporters.

This shows how far the UN will go in setting an example and a standard for where and how far our ”humanity” as a whole reaches out to each other as neighbors, brothers and sisters in and of this world. It is all politics they say, as justification – the lobbyism and getting on a president’s good side to ensure access to the country for the UN troopers that “are there to help”. They are thus also standing guard for more than 40 thousand Ivory Coast citizens that has taken refugee at a church  but that is the limit of the abilities or power of the UN – which is quite atrocious considering how much political power they are supposed to have and especially within how we leave the Responsibility to these organizations.

 How to Live the Word of Jesus in a Time of War Good Conscience?

As citizens of each country we can thus with “good conscience” say that situations of crisis in countries like The Ivory Coast or Haiti or Japan is taken care of by the International Community and do not consider to actually look at and investigate for ourselves if the aid and work of the UN is sufficient, effective or relevant for what is going on in these countries. And obviously the UN would lose money, jobs and power, were they to admit that they’re not capable of being the world’s nanny, watchdog and peacemaker.

Meanwhile the citizens of the Ivory Coast are being massacred by their own neighbors and have to run for their lives into the forests and across borders into Liberia. In Liberia the citizens of the Ivory Coast are welcomed into the houses of the local Liberians, but with thousands still running from the gunfire, the Liberian people are having a hard time providing shelter for all these people.

Freeze the frame

Let’s stop Here for a moment – Take a Breath and look at this: The Liberians are inviting the citizens of the Ivory Coast into their own homes, giving them their own food and letting them sleep in their own beds. When have we seen the Italians doing that for the Albanians? Or the Spanish for the Angolans or the British for the refugees from all parts of the World? The Liberian people are not rich like the European’s, quite the contrary actually and still they’ve invited the citizens of a neighboring country in war, into their homes. Jesus said to Love thy Neighbor as thyself, but who is actually living these words and walking in the shoes of Jesus, even amongst those calling themselves Christians?

There is a clear inclination that the wealthier a country and the wealthier its citizens become, the more they tend to only take care of and care for-  “their own”. France is for example sending troops to the Ivory Coast, but not to assist the citizens of the Ivory Coast, but specifically to protect French citizens that are in the country, many of them rich farmers, whose farms are being looted as a consequence of the civil war.

It seems as a part of the Human system that the more money we have, the more we fear to loose them and the more we’ll close ourselves off with our families in fortresses of private schools and planes and gated communities where we – if we have enough money – never will have to come face to face with any form of suffering.

The citizens of the Ivory Coast are not so lucky How to Live the Word of Jesus in a Time of War

Koulah Olivier Kouidé, an Ivorian who with his family has fled to Liberia, says:

“Despite all the difficulties, we have reached Liberia. But the families helping us cannot afford to feed us.

“There is no shelter, no clothing, no water and we are still mourning the deaths of two children. Now, I don’t know what to do. We are asking the international community to help us in any way that they can.”

Good Neighbors are hard to find

So far it has been their Liberian neighbors that have reached out and helped them, in spite of their own food and water running out. In other wars of other times, it has been the Liberians who have fled to the Ivory Coast, but now the food is running out and more than 100.000 has fled cross the border already.

It is time to wake ourselves up, shake ourselves up to see and realize that there is no effective International Community – There are no Christians that are truly living by the word of Jesus. And this is not gonna be solved by humanitarian organization coming to the aid or the people of the Ivory Coast – or by any of us feeling guilty or blaming each other for what is going on.

 How to Live the Word of Jesus in a Time of WarGreed and Self-Interest

What is required is that we look at what the root of the situation is – which is quite simplistically that two men are fighting over the power of a country, because they’re both greedy and wants lots of money. This is not the first country or the first two men to be in this positions. As Human beings we do this all the time – compromise the wellbeing of the whole for our own Self-Interest. Here it is simply an extreme example.

The Ones that DID reach out to each other and treated their neighbors as themselves, were the people of the Ivory Coast and the Liberians. They do not have much money, food or water, but they share what they have.

Who’s responsible? – Don’t look at me!

Whether we believe in the second coming of Christ or a unified International Community, it is clear that by placing faith and responsibility in others, we are also saying that we can wait for the world to change by itself, that we are actually quite satisfied as we are living – and why? Because we have money.

This is only possible once if you have money. The people of the Ivory Coast are not in lack of money because they are lazy, unlucky, unblessed or because they have a bad corrupt government that creates war. Many rich countries also have bad, corrupt governments that create war.

So the actual root of the problem is not in the Ivory Coast itself or its political problems. The root is not in these two specific mean, who both wants the same power. On the contrary – these points are merely reflections of the entire big picture as well as of the constitution of every human’s mind.

The Root of the problem is a rotten core How to Live the Word of Jesus in a Time of War

We have manifested our greed, self-interest, fighting to survive through competing with others within and as an unequal money-system based on false hopes and promises that everyone equally participate in, because each have invested themselves in the game and hope to win. One of the problems is that those that is winning this game, of who has most money and thus most power in the world, are not doing a very good job at giving back to the world what they have won.

On the contrary:  every oil hole is being sucked dry, every lobster is being caught in the net and every human being is left without dignity or worth – because we’re living in a world that is producing worthlessness and through the system of deception and its brutal justification of its own motive to survive at all costs, we accept to believe that what we do, what we eat and who we are is of worth, exactly because we too exists as that system of fighting to win at all costs.

The people in the Ivory Coast are our neighbors and so is everyone else and if we started treating them as we’d wanna be treated, the world would change more rapidly than we could have ever imagined.

But currently – we’re stuck with the fighting ego’s and the deception of a greater power taking  responsibility that everything is gonna be alright if we just wait long enough. And we are stuck like this because this is who we’ve accepted ourselves as. It does not take many moments of Self-Honesty to see that we have ourselves too, participated in and created not only the division between people  but equally wars with and inside ourselves.

 How to Live the Word of Jesus in a Time of WarSo how do we Change the world?

To change the systems of the world to systems of Equality that is based on the Practical Solution of What is Best for All in fact, requires for us to change ourselves to even be able to accept and live in such a system. The self-compromise and deception has been our every day life for so long that we require a major remodeling and renovation of our inner and outer world, before we’re even able to change ourselves.

This is what we with an Equal Money System are here to Change.

This is the first economic system in the world that both supports life and at the same time provides the investor with a safe life, free of fears and worries due to the revolutionary ”Eco-system” structure – that ensures that all are cared for Equally.

The EMS is a completely new financial system that is based on entirely different rules than any system that currently exists. We are not required to print new money or utilize taxes – because the money is already Here – They are simply being channeled and distributed ineffectively in a way that is NOT best for all. So many industries are existing in spite of life – in abuse of life – only to make money – so what we gotta do is to invest in a real solution – a financial ECO-system that is sustainable and as perfect as nature in providing everyone with Equal Care – Investigate the Desteni I Process that is and you will that it is in fact practically applicable.

In the EMS we combine Financial Freedom with a Re-Education of Ourselves to Self-Empowerment and Self-Authority so that we never again will have to Compromise, Suppress and Enslave ourselves to Exist – So that we no more have to Live in Fear of Not having Money.

How can I Participate? How to Live the Word of Jesus in a Time of War

We are simply taking the principles of nature’s equilibrium as an eco-system, where there is always enough for everyone and re-create it as a financial system. How it works practically, is initially through the creation of a financial “eco-system” on a micro-scale, meaning with a small, yet stable amount of Humans – a group of people that through their investment and participation become able to exist and have their basic needs covered through the support of others that are Equally supporting. This is based on the same principle for everyone participating – of Equality and What is Best for all, until eventually and through political tools, everyone on Earth is able to agree and participate in an Equal Money System. The Process to get there, we call The Desteni I Process. The first step within this is for each of us to connect with each other as 1 + 1 + 1 +1 until we stand as a group that can work together towards financial freedom for all human beings. We do that through social networking on the internet, through blogging, vlogging and connecting to all the people that are willing and ready to stand and walk with us. Each thus becomes an investor in a free and safe future, in a free and save life, first by taking care of their own life – through investing in the Desteni I Process and become financially independent and from there supporting others to do the same – where we, as we walk – re-educate ourselves to become sovereign Beings that can be trusted with Life.

The Game of Survival – Inequality Equations and Miss-Calculations

December 31, 2010 in World Exposed Blog

Most of the ‘great thinkers’ throughout history have seen parts of this, hinted and circled these points like vultures for truth and reason. But it has become the norm to either avoid setting Principles before preference, to allow ‘free-will’ to ‘run it’s course’ – or to set norms that are constructed with flaws of abdication of Self-Responsibility, placing faith in ‘higher powers’. But if we start a calculation by making one plus one three, suddenly three plus three becomes eight and so whatever we do, will be miss-calculated – every single calculation from then on out, will be flawed.

Thus Nietzsche had a point, when he called for a re-evaluation of all values – of the courage to Face ourselves within the Self-Delusion that we have Allowed to become the very ‘foundation’ of ourselves. Only then can we be able to begin making decisions that are based on Principles before preference, where we Dare to Will ourselves to Stand by these Principles no matter what. All morals that have existed so far, has been inherently immoral, therein lays the flaw and the miss-calculation. We have not Considered Life and from there seen what is required to be done, but have placed ‘more’ value and ‘less’ value, making ourselves the judges of Life, yet abdicating the Responsibility for the decisions we have made within that process – and more specifically, not Daring to Face the fact, that we might have made a mistake within the course of the ‘progress’ that we call ‘evolution’.

Ulrich Beck also has a point when he calls for a Cosmopolitical Global community that dares making local politics Global, which does not only mean for the System of governments, but for the governing of ourselves as well. Within the current system, we are existing in separate well-defined boxes as nation-states and personalities bound to these nation-states, in separate projects that we call ‘a life of our own’. But around us already exists a Global system with the ability to get in anywhere, to move anywhere, to move anyone and to direct the course we collectively take without any foundation in political decisions based on Common Sense Principles and Considerations of What is Best for the Whole of Earth. They seem to be having ‘a life of their own’, yet behind every move made, are Human Beings.

This system functions only within the Acceptance of all of us in it, through the belief that no matter who you are, you have a fair chance. But when you are born chained to the debt of your parents, your country or your continent, the prospects of ‘a fair chance’, equal to someone else in a prosperous situation, is virtually non-existing. Yet we have used this belief to justify the Suffering that we have Allowed and to hide within ourselves the deep dissatisfaction that we too are living only to survive.

From Canada to Cameroon, for each of us finance is about our private lives, earning a living, feeding our children, buying a home. But for some, finance is a game – a game that only they know how to play, a game where it is other people’s money that is at stake. It is a game of speculation, of digits jumping off screens and into the pockets of those fortunate enough to know the rules of the game.

The problem is that each of us, the one’s that worry about our mortgage, about college tuition for our kids, about providing bread on the table the next day, and the next, are not aware that we are part of the game, that we are game pieces, the pawns and ducks and that it is our personal finance that makes up the game board, from which the lucky few have their laugh.

We do not see that we are connected, that we together without knowing it, provide the bolts that make the wheels of the game of finance keep turning. We are all a part of it, from New York to Nigeria – but for some the stakes are higher than for others – some play the parts of the constant losers, generation after generation depleted and exploited: natural resources, education, health-care, clean drinking water and the ability to make a living. Others play the part of the middle-class, the masses of endless consumption, who more willingly take their part in the game, because they might, they might get a shot of getting ahead, of securing their future, of being the one’s that get to play – and win. The secret that no one has told us and that we couldn’t figure out for ourselves because we didn’t know the rules of the game, is that we are playing whether we like it or not, whether we are aware of it or not. And it is within each of us, playing for ourselves, for our own lives that this secret lays. Because we believe that we are not connected, that we are not playing a game – because it is our lives, our childrens lives that are at stake. Yet that is exactly what keeps the game playing itself – the investment of our lives, the fear of not surviving and the desperate comfort when we do.

So essentially there are two games being played on one chess board:  One is the earth with its cities and its cornfields and its oil rigs and its slave labor. The other takes place in the clouds of speculation, making up the rules as it’s goes along for the other game to provide the necessary fuel and finance to ensure that a few, a lucky few, remain the winners. These gamers take media, banking, wars and governments and shape them to fit their need. Everything that we see, everything we eat, every cent we give to charity is carefully calculated to ensure that the game keeps going. It is essential to the game that only a few knows how to play it. So the rules are made complex, requires special education that one can only achieve by investing oneself in the game – a network of gamers, that has been compiled through generation after generation , shell-company upon shell-company that seems endless and off the map. Brands with family names that project loyalty and sincerity, yet are transnational and not bound by any Principles or laws. But behind them are people, behind it all is always people. It is not an evil conspiracy, but it is the Human Nature of greed. And who of us can say that we would not ever have done the same, were we in their golden slippers or golf shoes today?

The point to get across is not the revolutionary notion of the proletariat fighting the evil bourgeoisie – but to understand that the game is kept going by all of us investing ourselves in the game, whether we like it or not, whether we know it or not. The nature of the game is to keep depleting the Earth, its animals and people, through a carefully orchestrated centrifugation of land, crops and oil. How it ends up being real money in the hands of real people, lies within the structure of our systems: our faith that banks are institutions of the people, that governments are institutions of the people, that corporations simply supply the demand of the people, that media serves the interests of the people. And so – we support, we participate; we live our lives, with pensions and debt and cravings for new merchandise to give us the feeling that we are getting somewhere, that we are moving up in the world. The farmer or factory worker in Nigeria or Cameroon has no chance of breaking the chain. The guys on top of the food chain have no interest in stopping the game. They are just as scared of loosing what they have as the rest. And in between are the rest of us. The middle-class that do no harm, the ones that are not responsible. We each live our lives, privately, separately, only meeting in banks, shops, churches, on game shows on TV or even on Facebook. Many of us see that something needs to change. Some place their fate in spirituality, in positive thinking and in the belief that everything happens for a reason. Cleaning the body, the soul, the earth has become a business of its own. Others want to fight the system, the rich, and the governments and unite in small groups of resistance, going ‘off the grid’ often based on feeling powerless and angry. A vast amount of people play computer games, smoke weed, drink or eat because they don’t know what else to do – and then there are those that embrace the system, exercise, build careers and families, believing in the progress of the Human race.

We all know that a change is required, yet we do not believe that we are the ones required to make it happen for whatever reason we make up for ourselves. It is the governments, the corporations, our parents, God’s, the system’s Responsibility – yet it is clear that none of these are capable of taking Responsibility within their current condition. What we do not see, and yet do see without admitting it to ourselves in full awareness of what that implies, is that our World is the Whole World and that these private lives and ‘worlds’ that we experience on a day to day basis, are based on this illusion of Separation and within this the fear of not surviving and the justification of competition with All other ‘parts’ of life as something ‘natural’ and unchangeable. It is supported by the delusion of ‘free-will’, which is really just a fancy word for self-enslavement – the master becoming his own slave and throwing away the key.  If we take a good, long, hard Self-Honest look at the World and ourselves within it, we will clearly see that the ‘free-will’ that we worship is determined by one thing only: Money. Thus we become our own slaves in the belief of ‘free-will’ as something real – willing to give up everything, to sell ourselves, to become workers pretending to work towards ‘self-realization’ within a career as the main purpose of our lives, most of us secretively desiring to be somewhere else, to be someone else, yet not even able to admit that to ourselves having accepted this basic self-deception of ‘free-will’, determined by the silent taboo of money.

When do you ever hear people talking about money? Really talking about money? We would say; “everyday, all the time” – but that is not so. People talk about survival, about the game of survival, either in frustration or relief or brag about their ability to survive. We do not talk about what is behind money, what we, through the symbol of money, and what money to re-present, have done to ourselves. Some will see it and they will see that what is required is to stop the money-system entirely. But what they are not seeing is that the blame and thus the Responsibility for this condition is placed outside Self – trying to fix the illness by making the symptoms go away – be that money, the system, the government or god. We have allowed money to be the re-presentation of ourselves as individuals and as a whole – dis-playing before our very eyes on an everyday basis, the cruelty and the absurdity of the game we play. It is obvious that if we are playing a game without knowing the rules, we never had a chance of winning in the first place. But if the game cannot continue without us playing, knowing the rules or not – we cannot stand by say that we are not Equally Responsible. The question is thus if we dare changing the rules of the game and even more so: what will happen when we do?

Within the Equality Equation of One plus One being two, it is clear to see that it is possible to change the course of the World through a simple Application of Common Sense. This is not about ideological or life-style politics, it is not about debating between a socialist or capitalist society – It is the Basic Common Sense Realization that we All Participate Equally in this World, though through a System based on Inequality and Separation, a flaw in the Equation that can be solved through the Application of Principle above preference, but where some are in a position currently to make a difference, while others are not. It is those of us who are in a position to make a difference that has the first Responsibility to do so – but that also means the Responsibility to sort out our own miss-calculations and Inequality equations within whatever we Participate within and as, inside ourselves as well as in our daily life experiences, as the One plus One plus One plus One – that can Change the game of Survival to a Life in Equality of All Beings – a Life where we can finally start having fun and play together instead of fighting each other in the delusion of separation and survival that was never more Real than what we have Allowed it to be. Support The Equal Money System to End All Inequality Equations through Self-Responsibility For All as One as Equal as Life.
