Small Pieces of Paper Required For Necessities? Can’t The Human Race Do Better Than This?

homelessPlanet Earth and the human race have continually gone through dramatic, paradigm shifting transformations throughout history. For example, we once thought the earth to be flat, but now we know it to be round. This is one example of many where the curtain has been pulled back and as a result the way we see and perceive the world has completely changed.

These shifts haven’t happened in what we would consider “rapid time” throughout our lives, but today things are different and multiple paradigm shifting realizations are occurring on multiple levels all at the same time. Millions of people across the globe are waking up to what’s really happening on the planet, and more people are beginning to question it and ask themselves, does it really have to be this way? What’s going on? Why aren’t we living in peace? Why aren’t we living in balance with mother nature? Why does money have to come in the way of basic human necessity?

What exactly have we created for ourselves here? Do we really need to spend a large chuck of our entire human experience working to acquire little tiny pieces of paper, so that we can exchange that paper for our necessities and wants, with hardly any time to live freely? Not too smart is it? Why can’t these necessities be available to everyone, for nothing? Why do we glorify the idea of “being busy?”

The system of finance and economics we chose to surround ourselves with always people to justify the need for money. Education in particular has made it very hard for some to see a better way, but the solutions are out there and we are definitely capable of it. You should not have to pay for live, it’s a right given to us when we are birthed into this world.

Our educational institutions teach us about finance, economics and how the world works without questioning it. We are taught that this is the way it is, and that it is necessary to avoid complete chaos. Do we not already live in a world full of chaos? Is this really the only way? Why do so many of us just accept it?

Most of the things we acquire aren’t even our wants, they come from a lifetime of programming, they come from a specific picture that’s painted for us, a life to follow, a certain way to be, how to live and what to do with our life. Most (if not all) of our wants are the byproduct of clever marketing.

Meanwhile, while we are busy taking care of ourselves and trying to survive, our attention is turned away from what’s really happening to our planet. In order to preserve our current way of life, we destroy our planet, strip it of its natural resources, murder animals and their homes, continue to throw toxic chemicals into the atmosphere and watch as billions of people around the world live in complete poverty, and that’s not all. Time is something we’re running out of, and that’s why so many souls across the planet are feeling a deep desire to step away from the way things are today, step outside of it and begin creating something new, a paradigm shift, a desire to show the world that yes, a utopian society is possible, it is achievable and it is necessary if we want to move forward as one human race.

What we spend on war in a few days could feed the entire planet for one year. We have more than enough means and necessities to provide everybody on the planet with clean water, food and shelter. So ask yourself, why don’t we? Who is thriving off of keeping so many people in such a harsh environment, especially when we have the means to make things better?

What is money? It’s tiny pieces of paper and digits on a computer that we believe is needed to survive, to live comfortably and more. We give so much power to it without recognizing that the power lies within us.  So, again, why is the medium for accessing the world’s “resources” this little piece of paper? Why can’t everyone have free access to human necessities? Food, shelter and water, especially when it is clear that we have the means to do so?

Our bodies of governance give us the illusion that these problems are being discussed and tackled, that programs are constantly put into place by peace keeping organizations to solve these problems and that they are complicated issues. The truth is, it’s not that complicated, so what’s really going on?

This is a prison type environment that forces us to depend on others, instead of ourselves. I have a hard time believing how we can continually sustain a system that no longer resonates with anybody, and continues to destroy our planet.

Our time for change is now, the window of opportunity grows shorter and we must shift the planet. This shifting requires drastic changes on multiple levels that range from energy, health , education and more. It starts with waking up, questioning what you believe and taking in new information and evidence with an open mind. Sometimes, what we fear (change) can prevent us from seeing things in a clearer way.

Imagine a race that has evolved past the concepts of greed, war, fear, ego, money and competition (we are also heavily marketed and programmed with these concepts) to one that lives in cooperation, understanding, peace , sharing and love. From this place of freedom we could very easily access our unlimited potential, which (as one human race) is huge.

I know many of you think that this type of large scale change is not possible, I am here to tell you that it really is possible, and we do have the potential to do it. Will we succeed? Our race must evolve past these archaic concepts if it is to join the greater community that awaits us.

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world, indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has” – Margaret Mead

Right now, we are living in very special times. For those who work directly in the “world change” department, it’s very easy to see. So many things have been happening, and so much light has been shed on concepts that people were afraid to question.

We must do away with the absolutely specious notion that everybody has to earn a living. It is a fact today that one in ten thousand of us can make a technological breakthrough capable of supporting all the rest. We keep inventing jobs because of this false idea that everybody has to be employed at some kind of drudgery because, according to a MalthusianDarwinian theory, we must justify our right to exist.” – Buckminster Fuller
