Right from his landing in NZ Jonathan noticed that the sky was so much more brighter here than he had seen in the Northern hemisphere – even from Hawaii in the middle of the Pacific the horizons were now unclear.
Noticeable for him on most occasions here were the clearly defined razor sharp horizon lines when looking out to sea. He has not seen anything like this for 15 years due to the massive recent industrial outpourings north of the equator. That for New Zealanders, the lack of atmospheric pollution is taken for granted whereas Jonathan is becoming used to witnessing a yellowish haze that blurs the horizon line when looking out anywhere in the Northern hemisphere. Even when he in an airplane at 30,000 ft it’s basically the same.
Whereas in the Southern hemisphere Jonathan states that there is a better chance for us in this hemisphere to have a healthy and comfortable life style, without atmospheric pollution - by introducing new clean steady state solar technologies
Though solar energy comes from a fusion reactor that could be very dangerous, however fortunately it’s situated 93 mile -s away journeying through space. So we are basically safe, and that the atmosphere of our planet essentially can act as a shield without causing us to much harm.
Due to the ozone level over NZ and the lower latitudes of the Southern hemisphere being thinner – more intense sunlight there is a higher number of watts hitting the ground per square metre - especially when compared to the Northern hemisphere – so it is a natural move for us in NZ to start utilising this solar energy to power up our country.
Germany is far closer to the North pole than NZ is to the South Pole – so if the Germans are the top global solar country, then NZ has a huge advantage and opportunity to take this to the next level. Jonathan says NZ can easily do this and it would be cheaper as well, due our closer position to the equator.
Pump water uphill … for night time gravity driven generation use. Having a central storage dam that can be used on demand. Tesla’s name came up briefly as being able to tap into our planet as a spinning dynamo. Plus the large battery packs now becoming available.
Jonathan then tells us that he has been working on stored energy for the last 35 years and it is not just sun light – it’s light energy that we can extract energy out of. Even when it is cloudy – light energy always hits the earth. So when there is light it can be turned into electricity.
He states he can store electricity in batteries that can now last 25 years on a solar system of his own design – and for the very few times that the days were heavily clouded – have a small generator just in case.
Also, that he has never had a power outage with his solar energy system. i.e no stoppage or failures.
This is a major benefit as well as eye opening information!
Solar energy also has a very good advantage in that it gives you very clean power – that there are no surges or spikes as it evenly distributes the flow from the battery to all the appliances that need power. As a result he has never had a light bulb burn out or a stereo stop working or a washing machine or hot jug – because there is no surge or spike. This is where batteries and solar energy can save all your electrical appliances - from burning out. The unrecognised beauty of solar energy from batteries is that all appliances will last an exceptionally long time.
In NZ where we have 230 volts they can spike up to ten times higher - up to near 2.500 volts when the power surges along the lines. These are instantaneous and just blow many appliances out. This can occur for example when a very large refrigerator compressor in a supermarket turns on – and there is a huge ripple along the power lines and the knock on effect – results in spikes and thus the appliances can get fried.
He said that where he lives in Hawaii, he is still on the grid, but may only take 1 and a half % of power off it, just to cover heavily cloudy days.
Meaning 99% of electricity comes from the sun and the other 1.5% from the grid and in the USA, China and Australia this displaces an enormous amount of Co2.
Listen to Jonathan as he spells it out.
He further states that he can produce a solar energy panel that includes all the electronics - a small computer and batteries that will last for 25 years for $600 US. That is correct ‘everything’ lasting 25-30 years. What the electricity companies need to do is get in and do solar units too – there is good cash in this. Plus, they have the finance to further the research and paradigm, however they are suffering from stranded investment – being that they have already invested in their own future and have to now hang in for these next 30 years to extract whatever they can from their investment.
Costs Coming Down.
We may have plenty of hydro and windmill power generation here in NZ which is renewable – however solar is now delivering electricity at 8 cents a kilowatt hour – which Jonathan says is about a third of what we are paying here in NZ. Even with hydro power at 70% of power generation for NZ - it’s a high maintenance operation. Solar power has virtually zero maintenance in their operation. Now and then wipe the solar panels.
Today solar panels are being made with over a 50 year life time and inverters that change DC current to AC with a 25 year guarantee. Which mean if something mechanical happens to it, you do not have to pay to replace it.
Solar is all solid state – with no moving parts and no friction – virtually zero wear and tear.
Other Subjects Covered.
Cells that can come in rolls like wall paper and that you roll them down your roof. At present they only last about 5 years.
In the next 20 to 30 years - Worldwide there is going to be a huge percentage of electricity demand that is going to be met by renewables - especially solar – mainly because it will outperform static combustible technologies including nuclear.
Transport of the future where practical – Tesla batteries & long haul trucking by GPS navigation.
Lack of space for car parking in cities be it in the CBD or having room to park and house cars in a family of two adults and two teenagers in the city … No parking on the street?
More people will opt for more public transportation in the cities and hire cars from drop centres if one is urgently needed. In Munich Germany - electric BMW mini smart car 33 cents a minute swipe your Credit Card and get in and start driving – you finds the car by a smart phone App in a street station near by.
Air transportation is being designed as well with specific air corridors to keep some sort of order - Germany -Lilium
Tesla - Elon Musk – Hyperloop ground transport at high speeds
Listen to this conversation about transport that is electric, clean energy and silent
The Human Condition
Especially a durable prosperity that goes a step beyond sustainability.
That human beings can exhibit the highest elements of our nature and have faith that the forces of lightness gain predominance and make things better.
It is incumbent for us to utilise our creativity to improve the world or use it that ends up having so many negative consequences that future generations are having to pay for.
To be conscious of what choice we make when we wish to improve our world and planet’s biosphere.
People be trained in schools about consequences.
That corruption of our inner being is expressed in the outer world – because we have not listened and taken into account our conscience
Listen to the end of this interview to Jonathan as he opens up on taking us into conscious thoughts and conscious actions - as we bring more light to the world.
This soul brother is ‘out there’ he is prepared to give it a go for all that he is worth. Upfront and into it, and a courageous willingness to ‘have a go’!
Back in the 1990’s Rev Billy noticed a more overt method of marketing products that was being pushed into people’s lives and as a vulnerable consumer it engaged him by appealing to his status and power, good looks and youth – and he was tricked into it. And it kept turning his head.
Then somehow with the help of friends and teachers and the fortune of the luck of the draw - he decided to resist! He was just tired of getting rolled over by the glam and whizz bang of seduction and the dazzle of neon super models when he walked through New York’s Time Square. So out of these circumstances he emerged out of the pavement - as a preacher on the Broadway sidewalks of Time Square.
And with help of some cohorts created a theology in which Mickey Mouse was the antiChrist. Then he placed himself in front of the Disney store and began to encourage and exhort people, that if they entered the Disney store and shopped - they would be sinning! You will have to listen to Rev Billy rage against the machine – ‘that they are all sweatshop products’ – and that type of preaching would go on for hours and hours . And he received all sorts of different responses … and he got better at it. And he got what preachers got … your whoop – yes your whoop! …. And after some months he got his whoop up to speed and that he could preach at a thousand bored listless tourists, drifting like cattle and get them to consider to go into the Disney store - OR NOT. And this is when Billy’s Ministry began.
It began in his own self-defence, but also a willingness to appear foolish and he encourages all his listeners (he laughs) to be foolish and we have to cross-over from that character that we have been ‘conditioned’ to be.
The American comedian Steve Martin in the movie “Leap of Faith” came up and Billy said that he was influenced in this role by comediennes, rock and roll and jazz. He would also go to Evangelical and Pentecostal ‘performances’ where there would be grandmothers passing out on the altar and people screaming - and then he states that many of those churches were right wing in their content. So he turned off the content and just learned how to preach. Listen to Billy, wind up and show how it’s done!
Yet Billy did not really want to be a preacher, because he was brought up by abusive right wing Christian parents. However he in the end could not resist, because having the backup of a choir and great music made the message even more compelling. So when he really got good at it – the Church of Stop Shopping had to have a choir – and he found many people who agreed with his contention that consumerism is the devil – starting to sing his lyrics. – He doesn’t really know how it actually happened - he said he was lucky – it was a blessing - out of the blue – it just became.
Surmising that it was partly persistence, stubbornness and the willingness to let go and be foolish.
Billy states that we have to be open to the mysterious and the earth telling us in whatever subtle ways we can perceive - that the indigenous peoples have been telling us from day one that consumerism and everything that it entails is not the way forward in our relationship to our great sustainer, our planet. It is not the indigenous people way to just make money and conquer nature.
Visiting Standing Rock in North Dakota
Listen to Billy tell us what happened up in Standing Rock in North Dakota where he took his Stop Shopping Choir and that so many other indigenous tribes from around our planet had converged in support of the First Nations of North America. He finds himself with the Aotearoa NZ Maori and in particular their haka - he realised that they had a deep connection to the earth. Listen to here his tell his story.
He said all other tribes were singing water related songs that were so very moving – that he and his Choir started crying.
He mentioned that the songs seemed to have Beethoven’s 9th beat - that he felt his life changing …
And right next to him and the Savitri D were 15 Maori who when they dropped into their karakia (prayer) followed by a haka ‘it scared the hell out of Billy and his group” … that knowing about other first peoples from around the world makes a huge difference to how he saw life.
That Rivers are becoming recognised as entities
He then mentions the Whanganui River ( awa) as having recently been given living status and classified as an entity. This he said was wonderful and that other countries like India are following suit. http://www.ourplanet.org/articles/new-zealand-government-acknowledges-a-river-as-a-living-entity-and-a-park-as-having-human-rights
He sees that the reengaging with this knowingness, that the Whanganui river is an entity – shows that the global neo-liberal economy has a limit. That this emergence of such an event means that indigenous cultures can now take the higher ground in seeing that the earth is both living and sacred. See India recently passing legislation as well as what has been happening in Bolivia and Ecuador etc.
Billy sees this as an earth-aluya moment in our history -this is what we are waiting for …
Billy states that he is very grateful for the leadership that has come his way. (It takes huge courage, especially in the USA). He is grateful that the indigenous – earth peoples have survived the extraction and murderous ways plus the diseases of our European culture. To still be here as carers of the earth – that which lends us bodies in which to live, plus free air, water and until recently a free food chain.
We need to drop the old story of conquest and empire and consumers consuming our planet and allow the old stories of pre ‘city-state’ culture, to come in. That the word natural needs to been seen as far more sustainable than cultural and allow the earth to re-enter our consciousness.
Being mindful in one’s actions
Both Billy and Savitri D his dearly loved wife are very mindful and respectful of the lives of humanity and are very caring of how they language their connection both to people and our planet as a whole.
He intuits that the uprising on earth today is more than a message to him it is an instruction – that the earth is giving a signal to join her – in this uprising …
Then present situation in America and what leadership is required.
We have to come back to the living earth.
I then interview for 25 minutes, Savitri D - Billy’s wife and leader of the ‘Stop Shopping Choir’
The Church of Stop Shopping is a radical performance community of about 50 people.
Who are united around their values …
And recently they have been going inside banks to show their resistance as consumer activists. For example they even travelled to North Dakota to the Standing Rock - access pipeline. In super of the First Nation peoples.
Their strength is their creativity and communal energy which focuses on political activism, being radical earth activists with heart and soul.
Being earth oriented they look at natural systems for clues - such as a healthy bio-system is diverse. They look for resilience in their human community as much as they do in their physical landscape – some would say a permaculture view – a very broad view of integrated designs of things.
Yet a lot of their work involves standing on police lines protesting … and doing it with song and hilarious preaching plus ferocious preaching too. Disrupting the normal tone of protest – adding clever and artistic props that they make themselves. Plus, over the last 15 to 20 years they have developed a broad vocabulary to add to their protest and resistance – using every different strategy they can imagine. One continuous strategy is focus on climate change and to keep it in the public consciousness all the time.
This with keeping fossil fuels in the ground, trees deeply rooted and animals healthy … to reduce human chauvinism in its industrial effort to extract the last of earth’s gifts out of her. Is what they are here to protect.
Savitri says she and her troupe are wild people who live in the city – being the human wilderness of New York city.
And New York is the entry point of the USA and the road is unknown – but people show up as they find a way to divine a way to survive and make a new life for themselves. As an artist it is very exciting but for an ordinary person too, just wishing to become financial stable.
Cultural creatives hare challenged to come together. As the arts now are becoming very commodified and institutionalised – and it is difficult for an artist to be political – as sponsorship option evaporates instantly – and has always been that way.
People in NY are in a hurry – but they are open …
Some of the protests were:
Singing about Monsanto and honey bees, neonicotinoids and pesticides, plus being pollinators where they dressed as honey bees – and the fact the the Stop Shopping Choir is so diverse that there are always creative input to their shows.
BP comes up for some attention … Marktown East of Chicago – is supposedly a cancer cluster area – so they went and sung to the people of that area – about capitalism and the extraction the fossil fuel industry – and these people are going through hard times so ‘the choir’ has to communicate with them in a gentle and respectful way – without undermining the value of what they have put into their own life – albeit working for a corporation that is basically only profit motivated.
That though in a hostile territory the payback was that they were very well received as they both educated and healed these workers by showing that they cared.
What are we to do?
Start sharing deep story with each other – being caring and insightful – be open to change and don’t get sucked in by mainstream media – it is not productive at all.
What will make people more active and engaged?
Community holds us up and supports us – community is powerful and capable of profound things – someone gets tired. But there is always someone having an up day and they come in alongside you and lift you up. Tend to your garden and nourish all your relationships.
Gather together to work with you affinity groups = people you know and trust and build strong cohesive relationships. It’s a long game and the challenges are not going to go away tomorrow.
Yet Billy states that in the USA things have never been darker yet things have never been brighter … yet we need Noble courage to stand up!
The present president is showing to the public face that the macho fundamentalism is bulldozing and extracting every last drop of what the earth can supply.
What was interesting was that Bernie Sanders presidential bid was largely an Occupy Wall St platform.
I really want to share this interview with you as it was a heartfelt eye opener for me as it showed that there are many people in our towns, villages and rural regions across NZ, diligently focussing on pulling the threads of community together - in many ways under the radar - at a grass roots level.
As a ‘systems thinker’ Anneleise Hall’s insights are invaluable to all people who are wanting NZ as a whole - to prepare itself to become far more robust, sustainable and resilient. With a fast coming future descending on us - we need to really commit to ‘conscious action!’ Not only for our biosphere and all biota, but especially for the sake of our children and grandchildren too.
Many years ago, Anneleise was working for a local newspaper in a small region on NZ’s West Coast where she basically had full control of the content of that newspaper and as she was there for many years she got an overview of the makeup of this small town and she noticed that after the extractive industry of logging was closed down and the subsequent good pay-out by the NZ government - it interested her how this small town responded to losing major income streams – and how they innovated.
So in putting together the newspaper she grew an awareness of other ways of entrepreneurship such as the West Coast wild foods event, which went on to a film festival then tourism and art - resulting in boosting their own income and the local economy.
She ended up teaching young teens skills how to get a job and build up their self-worth that lead her into community work – then it was noticed that a lot of kids had fallen through the cracks – that if there was no sport, there was not so many options – so she started up a trust to get music into schools and the smoke free rock quest. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smokefreerockquest
Because of the lack of interest in some of the challenges of the youth and the teachers of the schools unable to have the time etc, that she noticed another small town nearby that had a ‘green dollar’ group and they were having markets in the weekend and it was quite active. It was here that she enjoyed getting fresh organic produce that were traded – and use the ‘various credits’ for other things and people were building tiny houses and rebuilding buses as a sustainable community was growing up on her periphery .
Yet on the other hand, Anneleise still in her newspaper role, was harvesting stories from around the world of other small towns that were doing very exciting and innovative things to mitigate the so called perfect storm of global circumstances. With globalism creating massive change even if it was not necessarily in everyone’s awareness at that time – she said that she was just led there without really being conscious of how it would unfold.
As she was in an industry where she was able to get all the news-feeds from around the world via news-wire and in doing so, receiving torrents of information that she could choose from. She was in a microcosmic situation of a little NZ town – looking out towards all the other towns globally in the greater planetary macrocosm – and how these towns were changing to meet the ever changing global circumstances.
One thing she became aware of just how creative people are and what is the potential when you start to think outside the square by creating real long lasting positive change – and this empowered her – in realising that these small towns and regions could really progress.
That when one town creates an innovative model – it gives other towns a blueprint and an ompetus as to how they too, can reinvent themselves.
Then Anneleise talks to the fact that she is a system – of breathing heart, lungs and this is her immediate ecology – and then in her family unit that’s another ecology and then her community - it is an even larger one – and all the parts interlink and interweave and if we are healthy, that little local microcosm is too. That there is a correlation that if our wellbeing as individuals is healthy, there is a very good chance our community will become one too.
Uncertainty and faster change affects us all
She noticed that the more uncertainty and faster pace of the world affected our levels of stress, depression and anxiety - plus fear of the future increased.
As a result of the changing global dynamics, she is also seeing more fragmentation and mistrust – as we haved moved away from our innate humanity and the ability to cooperate, when we as a species are really social creatures, and have been basically interrelating since the beginning of time. Whereas the current program that we are being inundated with is having the best, the brightest always winning, “we have gotta have this” mentality … and it’s turned into such a competitive mind-set that it’s now a case of the haves and the have nots. The winner and the losers and that can be seen nearly everywhere especially in the 2nd decade of the 21st century.
Yet in our hearts:
Yet in our hearts there is another thing happening, people are moving back to really basic ways of being, that she finds very exciting. That all this has been seeded over the last 30 to 40 years – that was quite fringe back then – is now becoming more and more mainstream as people look at a ‘time bank’ or green dollars and a community garden, a local food growing project, an energy project like a car pooling project - all being ways to counterbalance the status quo. Especially as the resources on the ground cannot keep up. (i.e - be sustainable).
So when the Christchurch earthquake happened, over the hill in Lyttleton the ‘time bank’ that was set up was able to quickly jump into action and able to be utilised by the emergency services because they had their own telephone tree and were already embedded and known throughout that community.
This is where PLAN B comes into it.
Project Lyttleton http://lyttelton.net.nz - cherry picked all the other pilot initiatives that were happening anywhere in the world, to see how they may be integrated into their localised situation
This is where Anneleise then noticed that the mainstream newspapers were not interested in printing any articles on ‘time banking’ – that Project Lyttleton Initiator, Margaret Jefferies could not interest these local corporate newspapers into covering this innovative method of enabling the community to become more resilient and self reliant.
She noticed there are little pockets in areas where inspired people inhabit and come together – however how do you communicate with these people when the mainstream local newspapers do not wish to help you? (hint, they are not here to bring community together ‘they’ are here just to make money and keep the status quo – Tim)
It took a while to build up the time bank – because the whole concept of throwing ‘money’ out the window and instead trading on ‘time’ was so new! “That one person’s time was exactly that same as another person’s time – so that every bodies time - is equal.”
That everyone has something intrinsic to offer and everyone’s time is equal.
Dr Edgar Cahn – Time bank guru: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edgar_S._Cahn
It was a way to not use our national currency the NZ dollar, especially if we were short of cash and instead at a community level get things done with just a giving of one’s time.
Anneleise says that from a systems thinking process, it is a rich ecology where there is a much greater choice when the community engages in a community wide ‘time banking’ system. This is because there is an amazing range and depth of talents and skills plus expertise that when you connect into and access this community you have this goldmine of real knowledge and wisdom.
That time banking is really a facility to go beyond our instinctive ‘modern’ mistrust of each other and start to rebuild both networks of community that Anneleise says, were once far more prevalent back in the past.
So the key here is to have some clear, accurate and balanced communication forms going on.
In the UK the Time Bank system expressed itself differently as the Government allied them to health centres – in giving assistance to old people in their homes and by helping out the elderly in their house, it meant that they could stay and live in their home longer instead of having to move to a retirement village for example. Also in Britain’s Prisons – (listen to hear the story)
The Non Market Economy
The ‘non market economy’ can be seen as up to 40% of the economy – like child care, care for the elderly, civic participation – volunteerism – all of this work is not contributing to GDP and it is not measured – yet it is the glue that holds our communities together.
So these activities are the foundation of our healthy human existence - yet under our current economic measuring - they are completely ignored.
Love comes into it !!! What is that worth?
Sustainability is a whole system – of many interlinking components that is inclusive of ‘closing the loop.’
Even the garage sale and car boot sale are parts to this whole. Where you are reusing and recycling things they are all integral to your community functioning at a social and at an economic level.
Having connection in your community is critical
Having a network of friends and kin is imperative! (listen)
Healing was another imperative !
Malicious propaganda via mainstream media like sensationalism of war, terrorism, crime etc – we must not let it undermine our sense of community, undermine our sense of connection, undermine our humanity and our caring for other people - and to where this leads us …
Systems thinking and healthy children growing up with healthy boundaries, that have healthy connections to each other and our world – this requires a lot of modelling. Modelling what the adults are doing in the community. So if adults are heart centred and aligned with a very balanced intent – positive change can ripple throughout the community.
She mentions Bruce Lipton’s understanding of ‘conscious evolution.’ See www.brucelipton.com
Finding that laughter and connection is in community.
Finding that little quiet place in nature or meditation – this is so essential to us in bringing us back to our basic humanity.
Letting go of stress, letting go of the negative media programming.
As a ‘serial researcher’ :) … these are other things covered by Anneleise:
We do not know what will eventuate until we go out into the community and involve ourselves.
We need to commit to make things happen
There is a richness of people who have skills talents and gifts to share.
We need to get together – share ideas and rebuild trust as well as rebuild a collective energy – where we work together in a cooperative movement and collaborate - as against competition
There is a document on http://lyttelton.net.nz – called ‘our story’ – which is like a blueprint or template, of what you can do.
Anneleise would also like to see a reduction of poverty and incarcerations, better health care, swimmable rivers – even a universal basic income … plus curtailing foreign land investments and what we need to do in regard to the election cycle.
Time banking and other community financial methods can be found on:
An extremely vivid overview of someone who has thought deeply of how community comes together - 5 Stars. A must listen for NZers wishing for a greater cohesive community connection.
Phil is passionate about and dedicated to capturing and amplifying the much needed spiritual and systemic changes that characterise our emerging global culture.
Looking at the issues he says, “Some people still have no idea that there are people and families who have more influence in the direction of humanity’s future than those who work within the government apparatus. Yet of those who understand the power that both old and new money yields, many still find it hard to believe that the people who really run the show behind the scenes do not have humanity’s best interests at heart. To them I say, just have a good look around. Put aside the strong evidence of a Satanist ideology and pedophilic tendencies within the uber elite, and pay wise attention to not just the system itself, but the health and prosperity of the people.
First, the system. The money supply is a scam in which currency is created out of nothing, where the profits go back to those who create it instead of the people and their community needs. Food is tainted, as is water. Medicine is in general a toxic soup of adulterated elements too, which struggle to resolve the symptoms, let alone cure the fundamental issues. Now of course there are many natural ingredients that can be highly effective against the widespread dis-ease which permeates our so-called modern world, but they’ve been so effectively suppressed simply because the people would manage their own healing on a local level.
And that is outside of the desired control of those who are hellbent on their power trip of ruling the world. This theme is present through all of this, actually.
Then there’s the mainstream media, which is a monopolized mess of propaganda and hypnotism. Now it is true that you will get some truth through these channels, but in the most part, information that reveals the big realities, especially regarding the theft of various elements of the system, will not be televised for society’s benefit.
Each and every one of us has surely seen how the corporatized media works for their own interests, right?
Then of course there’s the government. Big money, through their lobbyists, ensure that macro policy design supports their agenda. Its crony capitalism on steroids with a political puppet arsenal that makes Pinocchio look like he’s just had a hit of truth serum.
Take for example Australia’s Prime Minister. As an ex-managing director of Goldman Sachs, which is a banking institution deeply embedded into the banksterism that exists today, his appointment is such a massive conflict of interest that it is dumbfounding that the Aussies don’t physically escort him out of Parliament house. To add the final blow, he is also deeply in the pocket of the pharmaceutical drug dealers which have literally killed millions of people, as well as destroyed many more people’s lives through addiction and increased sickness.
Yeah, sounds legit.
So what does the public education system do regarding all this? Well, it maintains and perpetuates this status quo, of course.
Enter the people. There are three S’s which characterize humanity’s internal world today, which are sadness, stress and sickness. Ask nine out of ten people and they’ll be either in one or more of these states, or simply completely disconnected from themselves and their purpose.
Contentment is rare. Common sense is uncommon. The authentic, empowered man or woman is nearly non-existent. Of course on the surface people seem ‘fine’, but peak into their lives and it soon becomes pretty clear that it’s whirlwind of bitterness, smallness, hatred, jealousy and competition.
That’s not to say that our fellow men and women aren’t mostly good-natured and caring, but damn we’re lost in a web of bullshit. We’re all part of this to some degree or another, but very few seem seriously motivated to get out of the sick race and genuinely surround themselves with good vibes and good lives.
Why? There are many reasons, but to simplify it, it comes down to indoctrination, ignorance, laziness and fear. People just don’t understand, and they don’t want to understand, because it means much more than just changing their lives. It also means authentically facing themselves and the outside world, which means completely redesigning themselves and their concepts of reality.
So instead, many people find solace in giving back in some little way without having to do the hard work. One example is giving money to charity, without focusing on the core systemic areas that would actually deal with the problems. It’s so unfortunate too, because many charities and foundations are very much embedded and even complicit in suppression of the truth.
After all, there’s no need for that organization to exist if they solved the cause they were fighting for.
In any case, the world we live in is not one of general health, happiness and harmony. Instead, we have sickness, sadness and stress. And that doesn't even account for the super S of scarcity, instead of abundance. So even if the ruling class genuinely had good intentions when it comes to the care of you and your family and friends, they’ve clearly failed.
Either which way, it looks like we’re going to have to step up our vibration of consciousness and sort this mess out for ourselves, especially in our own lives. Or not; I guess time will tell.”
