Day 366: Less than 1 Euro a Day to save a Child

Image

Christmas is coming.

They say ‘Tis the season to be jolly and the season to be good.
This is why Charities capitalize on this time of the year, they ‘prey’ on those that are getting close to the day when everyone wows to be good, they know we are looking for good things to do to build up our Good Christmas Character.

Yesterday in my mail box there was the letter from my neighbouring church, it was a melancholic letter outlining how much we have lost the spirit of Christmas, how much we forgot about the man who came to remind us what it was all about – it’s about Giving, they reminded us.

It was meant to move us to do just that, Giving, the 2 enclosed envelopes told us to whom, that framed the letter into its real meaning, it was a reminder that we must give to them, in the specific, to those who vow to be the intermediaries between us and God, the trade union between the Earth and the infinite Goodness of the Creator.

The Church in Italy is a Corporation, it would be important to never forget this because then we would reward them based on performance and as far as having brought a solution to this world they just plainly sucked, so there should be no Bonus given in any form at the end of the year, especially not under the guise of giving to help others. Who are those ‘others’ that we are manipulated to believe would be at the receiving end of our charity?  And why those who are in direct contact with God are not asking the Almighty to send some cash, but wait, they are, everyone prays for Money the whole year around, we turn to each other only when the promise of a Divine reward fails us, which lately seems to be just about every-time we ask, ask and it is given apparently was never comprehensive of the money package, if it were we would never have reached this level of Inequality because most people -if not All, everyday, are asking for Money to one god or another.

Now, on our TVs for the past few weeks we had the ad of Action Aid going incessantly, they claim that with less than 1 euro a day we can save a child’s life, they say they have been involved in every developing country for over 20 years, not that we noticed because children are dying in the thousands still every single day, instead what we can see now, with all this freedom of information is that the CEOs of those Charities are taking home in the range of 100.000/year in remuneration, this is from their website

‘ActionAid’s Richard Miller – who earned just under £88,900 last year – was featured in recent media coverage on executive pay because we are a member of the DEC.

We believe it’s important that senior staff are not paid more than is necessary to recruit and retain high quality people and – as many supporters who have met Richard know – his role is demanding and complex. His job is to lead and manage a £60 million-a-year operation to deliver the best possible outcomes for the world’s poorest and most marginalised women, men and children.’

So, if we are to treat Charities for the Corporations they are, why are their CEOs paid close to 10.000 US per month, what is the target they are achieving to be entitled to such wages in a profit driven system?

Their target is NOT to find a solution to the problems of Poverty, if THAT was their target and less than 1 euro a day could save a child, with the money they raise at Action Aid they could save 2 million children a year – for 1 year – and we would have heard about them all year around and not just at Christmas. This of course ONLY if the operation costs of a charity of that size were NIL, which is obviously not the case, because even Charity people must eat and live and that costs Money.

Here is a link to a site called Charity Watch, where they explain the mechanics of what is involved cost wise to run a fund raising operation, the details of each charity are on sale, because we must buy our right to make a wise decision about where to send our charitable money, information in this time and age = money, or we could use our own brain to work out that Corporations that have an operating and marketing costs above 50% of what they raise, are in the Charity Business, if it didn’t make money you would not have so many Charities, so no matter what the claim is, they are selling us a product, they are selling us the immunity for our guilt at having had it easier, better and way above others for no specific reason but just because we got lucky at this Casino Capitalistic System.

If it takes less than 1 euro a day to save a child, why are we not giving it for all the children of the world, why are we not giving to all those that need a Life the chance to get one, why do we trust Corporations to do it on our behalf, is it because they make a good website and line up some feel good words about how useful it would be for the world if we gave some of what we don’t REALLY need to level the field with those that have nothing?

Then, if we consider Charity as a solution, why are we not considering The Solution to Charity instead?

Charity exists because we accept Inequality and abject Injustice in the first place, if we didn’t, everyone would be provided with a Living Income Guaranteed to make sure that they have enough to sustain themselves and their families.

The Equal Life Foundation has drafted such a solution, it’s called a ‘Living Income Guaranteed’, it’s all laid out, it’s a charitable programme because someone has done all the work for free so that you just have to join it, spread the word about it, you just have to consider stopping entertaining fantasies about solving the world problems by giving 30 euros a month, the equivalent to less than 10 lattes at Starbuck, to a good cause, to ensure that some get a chance to live.

This world will change through our direct participation, there will be no remote solutions, no ‘adopting a child at a distance’ that can save the life of 30000 children that die every day of preventable diseases, only a change in the economic structure of the system can do so, and that is the only Charitable choice we can make for Christmas, to grant to all what we claim to have a right for, A Life and that will have to be as close and personal as we can get, one by one standing for an irreversible Change, until it’s done.

Day 363: The Delusion of Ownership on Planet Earth

Property in Europe

As long as our civilization is one of property, of fences, of exclusiveness,
it will be mocked by delusions. Ralph Waldo Emerson

I was raised to worship private property as a Human Right.

I was told that the protection of private property is what Freedom is based upon and what Democracy lives on, because that way, everyone is granted the right to ‘own something’ they can call their own.

It is hard to review and question your belief system when we submitted to uphold the beliefs of others with a passion. And it is inappropriate to blame the rich for owning almost everything the planet has given for free for All, because they too were born in the same rigged system and accepted -not with a struggle, I should imagine- that they had the right to private ownership and who knows, they just lucked out and had more than others.

Many claim to have worked for what they own, or that they deserve it more than others because they are good and the good must have the ‘goods’, they were blessed by God, by the Universe, etc., the list of excuses to justify our position of entitlement is long and creative.

Yet with a pinch of self honesty everyone can see that if we are better off than others we were just lucky, we were born were there were opportunities and choices unlike many who were born where the opportunities and choices had been bought out by those with money, by the First Classers of this world that left behind a trail of destruction and abject poverty.

How can anyone claim ownership of anything that they can’t take with them after they die? If everything that exists keeps staying behind at crossovers, who is the owner of everything if not the Earth and if the Earth is the owner, giving freely to everybody, for everybody, how did we manage to exclude some to the right of a shelter or the right to eat or the right to drink clean water, if not through some form of abuse?

If we keep desiring exclusivity for just some, wouldn’t that mean that many must be excluded from the right to live, if I keep claiming to own something to the detriment of others that now can’t benefit from it, why am I not a criminal vs being a Landowner, why am I not a criminal vs being a Rich person in the face of people starving, what does the even Law mean if we have managed to create rules that exclude many from the right to a living and then wrote Laws to say that it is our right to do so?

I am not the only one who has been indoctrinated into the worship of private property, I am a product of this world and so is everyone else, questioning if the Rights we are fighting for are really ‘Right’ is required to create a different world.

I see private ownership as driven by fear and greed, many fear that one day they may not have enough, this is not surprising because the world we set out to create and support doesn’t provide a Living for all, this world provides instead an arena for competition where we have to grow smarter, more ruthless, we have to grow some balls, more balls -women included, because ‘Life is a Jungle’ and we have to do everything in our power to survive.

If we could make the effort to become aware of the root cause of our problem and subsequent behavior as our fear of survival, we would be able to see that the problem, the delusion of ‘private ownership’ could be corrected by removing our fear, and we could do that by providing a Living for All, by removing the ‘Jungle’ from what Life has become, so we wouldn’t have to outrun or outdo someone, we would instead be living in peace, in a supportive environment that would, by guaranteeing a dignified living for all, put an end to wars, violence and most crimes that are Money based, fear based, survival based and all this would be done without revolution but through an evolution and implementation of a principled living.

We need to reshape this world, pyramids don’t work but for the pharaohs, if we are holding on to the illusion of making it up to the echelons of the Elite, we are dumber than the Egyptian slaves, we bought into the illusion that a Pyramid game can be fair and offer Equal opportunities to all, that anyone can make it to the top, even in spite of the evidence that a pyramid has very limited space at the top -by design, and no one that made it up there is letting go willingly their position because we all fear the bottom lives, the lives we left to others to live but are not willing to live ourselves, or even willing to consider ‘having to live’, the terror of facing such realities would simply kill us.

If we reshaped the world in a Circle, where we could hold hands in support of each other, where each human and each living being were Equal in value and worth, where each one would be Equally supported from birth to death, no one would need to be the loser and go figure, planet Earth is already shaped that way, have we been missing something all along while we built pyramids and pyramid schemes on a sphere where nothing has more value than anything else, bar for the values we have superimposed on it through our idiotic economic system?
How much more obvious should the hint have been??

Support a dignified Life for All, this support will include the support for your own Life and the one of the people you care about, yes, we may have to reconsider our fascination with ownership and eventually give it up and as we do so, we’ll own it all, together and we will turn what we believed we had to possess, that ended up possessing us, into a Common Good, and the planet will become Heaven on Earth for that, as Life is returned to be the only Real Capital of the world, that we all share.

Supporting a Life for All has no Consequences, it will just make it easier on everyone, it will give Life to those that had no access to it so far. There is nothing to lose but delusions, Life is Here, we are not yet, what are we waiting for?

The Indefensible World of Equal Money

I have experienced 2 moments of Shame in 24 hours regarding supporting an Equal Money System.

The first was when I made a post on a Thread that I know was posted by a guy who understands this system and the problems we face and was suggesting Fascism as the solution to the World, due to Human Nature and the fact that people will have to be ‘forced’ into doing what is best for the community above the need/desires of the individual, which in fact are only imaginary programmed needs by a system that produces the delusion of Individualism to promote the sales of goods to the ‘original ones’ the ones that believe to be ‘not like anyone else’ (haha), another guy who has worked for Banks and knows economy inside out made a comment to say that he was entitled to his opinion but he didn’t see Fascism as the way to go and I posted about Equal Money; the guy who posted the original message replied that ‘yes there are some good points about Equal Money, but he doesn’t like the Cult side of it or the Metaphysical gibberish’ -in essence-, the other economist liked his comment and I felt ashamed and didn’t reply, the point that a cult brainwashes you and doesn’t un-brainwash you seems to not hold any consequential realization in people who have formed this opinion about Desteni in their Minds, the other points I will address further down the line.

Later in the day I met with my ex husband and when we moved our chat onto Equal Money he pointed out a few things, the first is that he sees no way to bring about a new system without much blood shedding, this can be due to the fact that he has a French background and that the French are especially ‘historically’ aware of the consequences of a revolution, no matter what originally drove it, as in good intentions and a desire for a fairer more Equal society can sometime turn into much blood shed, and the best man like Robespierre into a blood seeking revolutionary as a defender of an ‘ideal’.

The second point was that he cannot see ‘practically how this world can be managed by 4 -6 years of work, now this was not a point to ‘challenge my beliefs or opinions’ about Equal Money it was a management point, which I saw myself evaluate as a Project, in fact as any other project I would manage in which I would account for man-power in terms of TIME, because this is how we have learnt so far Project management, we estimate a timeline of events and then the Time needed to realize it to calculate both the manpower and the investment required. Yet none of us has in fact any of the required parameters to make this calculation, because

  • we have no timeline to walk for the events that shall unfold, hence one of the required parameters for this calculation is missing
  • we have no clue about what is really redundant, unnecessary or just simply manufactured to keep the system going within cycles of planned obsolescence or  what will we be able to do without and what will we use more efficiently that now, hence we don’t know WHAT we will be required to do to make this world work once all the parameters are reset, bar from seeing already that we will need to manage and distribute the planet resources the production and distribution of energy and water and  the management of waste
  • food production will be localized within the community life that will be set up but we have no clear clues as of yet about how this point will unfold
  • technology and how to drive innovation without a reward system and ‘healthy competition’ if any such thing even exists and how to move the ‘drive’ we now have to improve technology in a ‘drive-less’ world such as a carrot-less management system

So, as we are guesstimating what is ludicrous within our world system in terms of production that we may certainly do without, we are at this stage guesstimating everything else about a world that is not Here yet and so debating the point of HOW and the TIME required or the timeline or the lack of them to prove a point of UN-doability, is just an excuse to not get engaged, because experience will be required to be efficient in these new tasks and we will have to build that by doing it, because all manuals about ‘how to do’ something have been written after the ‘something’ was done, a few miss-takes in process were taken into account and corrected and the required ‘how to’ were refined into ‘this is the best way to do this task, trust me’

And yet I felt ashamed when he brought up these points, like I am stupid for NOT seeing the ‘truth about reality’ and I have to feel ashamed because I don’t have the whole picture yet, no project can be ‘sold’ without all pieces in place, and what we understand so far about projects is just this, ‘can I sell it?’ and this can be from both the point of finding investors and the point of con-vincing someone that this is the way to do something and please support my project.

So the point of shame arose from ‘I don’t have the whole picture’ and ‘he is making good points about it’

But let’s review both instances out of the box for a moment

First instance

two Economists chat about the troubles of the world which means

  • troubles are clear to them – a step ahead from those who do not see the troubles yet of abusing a world and its resources within a Profit Driven economic system that in no way is keeping into account sustainability or the speed at which the world can provide or recover what we take from it
  • apparently seeking solutions
  • dismissing Equal Money because we can only go for something we have already tried out, for example Fascism, and make the few adjustments required to make it work better, we can see how this mental process is exactly like writing a Manual, so we seek a process ‘that has already taken place’ and make adjustments within our Mind to set the new agreed SOP (Standard Operating Procedures).
  • last, we are not ‘selling’ this project, anyone who doesn’t see the need for change that will have to include US as The Change, is either kidding themselves or just passing papers so as to no be told ‘do something about it!’ which may include having to change himself/herself and the fact that when we do get access to Money, strangely enough, we seek for theories, groups, philosophies that confirm that ‘It is OK to make Money, it’s Noble, it’s a Proof that God/ The Universe loves me,  have done good, have good Karma, even when we can see clearly what we had to do to get the money and keep it, as investing in developing countries, or speculate on whichever market offered the speculation, meaning and including anything even the gambling on food stocks which are leaving whole regions in the world paralyzed and starving, and yet we cruise through the world, never making the connection between ‘my actions’ and the world, spreading stories like ‘The Butterfly effect’ and believing it only happens to a butterfly, that it is her fluttering of wings that creates hurricanes on the other side of the world, but No, it is not Me trading and buying stock of starving people and economies ever impacting anything, MOI?!? NOOO, it’s not me supporting a system of abuse, in every way I find, that is contributing to keep this system in place, because look I have GOD on my side, I pray, I thank the Universe, I am a Positive Thinker/Doer, don’t hint anything else, I want my PEACE/PIECE,  fuck off you Equality People, we are NOT Equals (I have WORKED HARD for MY Money!!)

But isn’t this just brainwashing in action? The Fact that we believe we are NOT allowed to design a NEW System, to review what went terribly wrong and write a new Economics, we are NOT allowed to face the fact that NOTHING worked so far, doesn’t THAT reek of brainwashing and limitation? We insist in trying to fix a flopped souffle, once you fucked it up it will never rise again, there is just no way, the ingredients were wrong, the process was faulty, you can try as many times as you want but if you insist to put rotten eggs in a souffle you will have a rotten souffle.

So, common sense would dictate that, since we have explored all variations in politics, the left, the centre, the right, NONE of which worked, there must be a problem with the ingredients, if we always had a rotten result, we really, truly, need to check the main ingredient, the eggs.

WE are the Eggs, far from rising to the occasion, taking to the streets demanding that the 1% that have a clue about how this whole system works give us a slice of it, hellooo, isn’t ANYONE seeing the absurdity of it? 99% of the People demanding that 1% change themselves because THEY are the problem? So where is the wholesome logic and common sense everyone is always throwing in the face of those supporting Equal Money as both a system change and a required indivisible individual change, because the system MUST be made by us, We are the 99% of the world, so where is the system as 100%, when you split it in 99 and 1, who would have to be required to change, and yet we focus on the 1% that won’t do this and that, won’t give up the power we have conveniently invested them with, so we wouldn’t have to become Self responsible, check out this mess and tell each other ‘no one leaves the room until we have tidied up the mess, there will be no playing until we first do what we need to do’. Isn’t this what we tell children? And yet we feel justified to fuck off to Mars, to hold Olympic Games in the face of a starving world spending millions building Cauldrons and fireworks to show off how Magic We Are and How More/Bigger/Better than Others we are, showing off our Pompous Useless National pride, and we justify what we do, because we have always done this and then attack a group that says, “but we can Change” and call Them brainwashed and cultish, yes that makes perfect sense.

SO, is Equal Money defensible within the parameters of what we call Logic and Pragmatism? Hell NO.

We cannot defend the fact that we don’t have all pieces in place yet, to ‘prove’ that we are right, and we cannot defend the fact that there is a Portal that everyone can check out that is reconnecting all the missing pieces of existence, we cannot defend WHY a Portal opened to give us a fucking clue about what is it that we are Not Getting, because really, we should have gotten it by now, we are the rotten pieces of this souffle, and justifying  the rottenness through Human Nature and having to accept who we are is a cop-out, it is what has in fact NOT changed the world so far, there will never be a dictator strong enough to hold everything in place, we tried that, and there will never be excuses we won’t be able to find to why we are NOT required to Change check us out, we are still full-time busy with this task and becoming ever more creative as we go.

But when we do, please, leave Equal Money out of the Equation, so that You too, when all else fails, will know where to turn and what to consider, the door will be open to join in, if only you refrain from fucking up the solution for yourself through your make up beliefs and limitations on why things are the way they are ‘out there’, not putting Yourself as part of The Problem just because you preach the “LOGIC of the System” to show WHY Equal Money will never work. Stop.

Equal Money is a system to establish a Life support on the Planet for all Equally and give ourselves and others the time to unfuck up, because the only ones that don’t get that we are the 99% it’s US, the system does and it designs entertainment and gimmicks with the specific purpose to distract us from the Matter at Hands, it tires us out with long hours of work so that when we come home we just want to crash on a couch and maybe drink or do drugs, so we may forget the sorry existence we live in, because if we did wake up to the Power and responsibility we hold, we would be a force to be reckoned with and a New World could not be stopped by anyone from manifesting for what is Best for All

So, I forgive myself for accepting and allowing myself to feel ashamed for standing up for a world that is best for All, for a system of Equals, where Life is honored and we can stop fearing each other as the psychopaths we have become

I forgive myself for accepting and allowing myself to feel stupid and clueless because I lack the parameters to properly estimate ‘what will it take’ to make this real, as I see realize and understand, no one has a fucking clue, and that if we in support of a New System don’t, the ones opposing Equal Money do not either and then the point becomes WHY are we not all standing together and walking this correction to find out, to Find the parameters as we walk to build this world that is required to be born out of the ashes of everything that has ever existed, because a system that leaves 1/3 of the world out in the cold is an abomination and our excusing it makes us a part and Equal to the Abomination and the Crimes against Life that are committed every day, and so We are the murderers, the soldiers, the war criminals, the rapists, the slave masters, the psychopaths of an existence that when we don’t defend we tolerate because it is working FOR ME.

And if you don’t get it, listen to Existence Talk at Eqafe, and get a fucking clue, because a Snail gets it and can tell you how You/WE are out of tune with Existence, an Owl can tell you how our separation is causing harm to the animal kingdom, an Elephant can give you parenting lessons and explain what it means to care for All as Equals, the dead will tell you what they didn’t get when they were alive and what needs to be done, and the consistency of the message of Equality and Oneness and on how we are missing out on Life, as we take useless Mind trips for self-gratification into our Self Delusions, is clear for all.

At Desteni we too can write, read/have read books, went to school, had a life, worked the system, have been married, engaged, had children, we are not aliens, we just heard the message, it’s there for everyone to access it, you will need to humble yourself to Existence or your Ego will stand in the way, telling you that you are MORE than a Snail, even when a snail can show us in CLEAR words how WE are NOT and if anything WE are less than the Animal Kingdom and the rest of Existence, that moves in tune with Each Other, understanding that nothing is separate and All is One sharing the exact same substance of/as Life and that if a snail can prove we have no fucking clue and are the most clueless creature in existence, who is then brainwashed to NOT SEE and not HEAR and not question this reality as a whole?

Imagine this, we live inside a body system that lives in Equality and Oneness, caring for each part of the whole, giving what is required for the whole to thrive at all times, never questioning, judging, never separating in useless religions or opinions, it just gets the job done, and YET we can’t SEE the way ahead, now please ask yourself WHAT more should Existence have done for you/us that place you/us inside a schooling system, we live IN IT, AS IT and so what did we do? We denied the Physical, we insisted that the Physical is in fact NOT REAL, AND made up Gods, stories, Religions, Belief System, anything that we could use to NOT face the Physical and what is showing us, the all consuming tragedy or Our separation and how we need to change our starting point and stop saying that we are just crossing through, that will be here for a moment and then on to Eternal Life, spreading our Lies, teaching them to children, enforcing beliefs for which we have never had an absolute commonly shared consistent feedback, and now that we do, we deny the Portal prior to an unbiased investigation and renounce its inestimable teachings. Because we are Insane.

This world is staring us in the Face as Our Creation for a reality Check, why do we keep looking away?

Breathe, come back Here and become part of the Solution, we all know this World is rotten and rotting away, let’s face it, let’s sort this out, let’s clean up the mess and then we can all go out and PLAY and discover the wonders of the Physical Existence – that we are at the moment busybusy annihilating- as One as Equals.
