Money is an Illusion and so is Working
For those of you who think Im a hater of the military or the government or anything of the such, let that thought go. For some reason over the years I have grown to see life with new eyes. And have grown to become an advocate for living my truth in my heart. And my heart has a larger brain than my mind. And thinks of others in a greater capacity than my mind is able too.
So I use it often when thinking of military, humanity, war, government, education and much more.
In my heart, for all my life, Money has been and still is nothing but an illusion to me. Money only has one purpose and that is to purchase things with it. And I also feel work to be an illusion. So what I have to write is my truth and what I feel within my heart.
I, me, the being writing the following, would be very okay with no military to protect me. I am not a victim and I love all people, even the “so called” enemy, jerks, stupid, aliens, you name it..... I have been them at one point in my life or another and shame on me to think they are less then me when I am them. Basically this is judging another. I may have said things in the past yet my heart has ALWAYS felt this way about humanity.
All the monies our government and other governments on this earth spend for a military and for weapons “I” would prefer they continue to spend it on the military men and women yet tell them to go home to their families and be with the ones they love and do the things they love. This goes back to feeling work to be an illusion. Work should support you, yet work supports the 1% in my heart of hearts. If you work to earn a living at no point should you struggle considering money is but an illusion controlled by 1% of the population.
Work should be something that is done because you want to and its what you enjoy or love doing. Not because you have to. And instead of spending hard earned tax payer dollars on weapons why not feed the hungry. In this country too. Many. So many. Can not afford to pay to have a roof over their head let alone food for their families. Also if our military wishes to defend our country or feel they need to work, then let it be. Yet they can be peace keepers instead of soldiers.
Many of our ancestors and indigenous peoples survived for many thousands of years without “working” to make “money”. They did what they needed to do to survive and had time for traditions, art, singing, family, animals, spirit, stories and for Themselves. What confuses me is that we are smarter than our ancestors, right? Yet why can we not see that we are being taken advantage of or being held hostage and fed fear by so few?
Why cant we see their is more to life than deep, fear based illusions, teaching us that we have to work day and night to have.... anything? Especially considering when the earth is abundant with everything we need and funny thing, its free and always has been, for billions of years.
If they tell you their is not enough clean water, than feel deep inside, connect with your heart. My heart tells me there is Plenty of fresh water and has been for sometime now even ways to develop fresh clean water. Yet its kept a secret or too many limitations are created to prevent this from occurring. Because if this were to occur someone may not be making the millions or billions they are used to making by taking advantage of the 99% who are indebted to the 1%. Their isn't enough food they say.
Not enough homes, not enough jobs. But honestly, is this truth? I will tell you what is true. There is enough restrictions, regulations, fees, etc... to keep anyone from reaching their dreams, desires, wishes in these difficult times full of fear, control and limitations.
It would be great if we could decide how the money we put towards taxes is spent or what it is spent on. Besides changing the military to peace keepers and paying them to stay home. Why not spread the wealth to all so no one would have to work? (Unless they wanted too) Allowing humanity to take up the things they love doing instead. And those who do work, or assist society, do it because they love it and want too. Or how about spend money on better education and the environment?
Overall, money, still is an illusion and maybe this is what needs to change. Before there was money there was us helping one another, exchanging, giving, caring and so much more. The 1% has taught us to be strangers towards one another. When the real stranger is the illusion we allowed to be created which we live in that has divided us.
If this does not resonate with you, then so be it. I do not judge you for who you are. Yet I declare myself a citizen of the world, and no border holds me, no one owns me and I am free like my ancestors and the other species on this earth. Free to Live a Life of freedom.
Just a little of what is going on in the world...
Our wasteful habits are endangering the Pacific leatherback sea turtle, a creature that has survived for 150 million years but is now teetering on the brink of extinction.
Americans use more than 380 billion plastic bags every year, contributing to the millions of pounds of plastic waste that ends up in our ocean. Sea turtles and other marine creatures mistake this plastic as food and often die as a result. Scientists predict that they could vanish within the next 5 to 30 years.
"You've been owned!" That's what product manufacturers are hoping the Supreme Court will tell Americans this fall.
The Court will decide if you have the right to resell the very things that YOU OWN -- your clothes, your iPod, even your house:
Please click here for more details, and tell the White House and Congress to stand by Americans' rights to resell the things we own.
