What Now?

-Bernard Lietaer, Founder of the EU Currency System

I have listened to several of his talks on youtube and have just ordered his book, The Future of Money. It is not available in the US, of course, so it has to be shipped from the UK. Used, it was almost $90.00 and new it is $189.00. WOW! It better be filled with great info. Having been involved in the World Monetary System he knows that their agenda is to keep the system operating as it always has. It is not interested in changing with the times. It is not interested in making the monetary system operate for the good of all, just for the good of the current Monetary System.

When I talk to people about what is going on in their lives, I most generally hear something like this, "I am not happy in my job and if I had the money to do something else I would." It seems that not having money or any way to get money other than to work for it is the challenge for most people. They have to work to pay the bills and there isn't any time left over to be creative. Work to pay bills and that is it. This trap that we have been participating in continuing obviously isn't working for anyone. We need to find a way out of that trap. I am pretty sure relying on the "powers that be" to find the way for us is not going to happen. Bailing out the banks and auto industry giants was an attempt to keep the monetary system status quo in tact.

When 70-80% of jobs are generated by small business - not giant corporations - the "old story" of feeding the rich so they can create jobs for the masses is a myth. As Leitear says, when corporations lay off 9000 people it is a big media deal, but when 100,000 small businesses go under, no one notices. When a WalMart Store goes in in a small town, how many small businesses go out? What happens to the diversity of products, services, and personal relationships with the businesses?

I will have more to say on this subject as I soak up more information. But, I am clear that Unity Consciousness is supporting a new kind of monetary system that benefits all - not just The System. Please be clear, I am not speaking against wealth, I am speaking for a monetary system that makes it possible for everyone on the planet to have all they need. Slavery generated by the monetary system is choking the life out of us all - the rich, the middle class, the poor and everyone in between.

I close with this quote from David Korten in The Post Corporate World, "In a debt-based money system bankruptcies and bank failures can be avoided only by continuous economic expansion. This is an important source of the money world's growth imperative. The system is designed to create winners and losers, with a bias in favor of the banks that make the money and against the working people and entrepreneurs who produce the real wealth. It is also a system designed to be unstable, because it must either grow or collapse."

"For most people, the resulting life-and-death struggle for a means of living creates a pervasive fear of scarcity that triggers a mass impulse, even among the very rich, to acquire and hoard beyond real need. The hoarding of money in turn increases the scarcity of money in circulation and further escalates the fear. It becomes a vicious cycle of escalating fear and scarcity." (p.35)

A final quote: "As a species, we face a fateful choice between the song of life and the song of money. Both promise life, but only one can deliver."

Living In Choice is a Choice - which will we (humanity) choose?

Oct. 28th

We are rapidly approaching October 28th, the final day of the last "day" of the 9th and final level of the Mayan Prophetic Calendar. According to some Mayanologists, this record of the evolvement of consciousness began 16.4 billion years ago with the first level, called the Cellular Level, because the first live cells came on the scene. Each of the 9 successive levels, each building on the other, were divided into 13 Kingdoms (Mayan) or 7 days and 6 nights. Each successive level was 20 times shorter than the previous level. The 13 Kingdoms of the first cycle were something like 1.26 billion years each. It obviously took a long time to create the solar system, the planets, the stars, the sun and moon, and every other vibrational mechanism for sustainable life to form. 820 million years ago, the second cycle, the Mammalian Cycle, began and in the 7th day of this cycle the first live births/the first mammals appeared on the global scene. Each day and night of this cycle was 63.4 million years in length.

So, here we are in the final days of (I am assuming, the driving Source's plan)the evolution of consciousness. The 13 days and nights of the 9th level are only 18 days each (we have come a long way). Consciousness has sped up the process of information processing. The evolution of consciousness has evolved us into a being with the ability to co-create. Humans have the inner technology to gather, process, and disseminate with conscious awareness what is going on around them. We are "getting it" that we do actually create our life experiences. (quantum physics, Abraham-Hicks, The Secret, Gregg Braden, Carolyn Myss, Bruce Lipton, Lynne McTaggart, ad infinitim). Our inner guidance system is our emotional system (thought, feeling, emotion). I developed a chart to show this process called the EMCS Living In Choice Levels of Responsibility Chart.

pastedGraphic.pdf pastedGraphic.pdf

This chart shows two worlds, the reactive world of survival and the pro-active world of conscious awareness.

If you go to my website www.garycone.com you can get the free download of the ebook I wrote explaining how this chart works along with a process of determining how well you are using your inner guidance system. It is called How to Manifest Your Dreams and includes the Living in Choice Science of Manifestation process.

As you can see from the above chart, what you believe is the driver for thoughts, feelings and emotion or energy in motion. By the time you get to sending out the energy of desire into the Universe, you have already imbued that energy with the information of belief, thought, feeling and then you have spoken the angry, resentful words, you have taken some kind of action as a result of that energy and then it shows up in your reality. Right? We are aware of this kind of co-creation, but not so aware of the creation of the good stuff. We think we were just lucky, at the right place at the right time, etc. but rarely to we recognize it was us who generated the good in our lives.

For example: You are frustrated at work because you have too much to do and too little time to get it all done. You know the job market is filled with many qualified job hunters, and that creates a fear that if you don't get everything done you will get fired. With your inner technology generating the vibration of fear and doubt all day at work, you go home and the kids haven't cleared their rooms and have trashed the living room, so you, like a volcano erupting, blow your built up fear and doubt about your job all over the kids. You yell and scream at them and then you feel bad because they got scared because they didn't understand your sudden angry outburst. They were just being kids, after all. Then chaos reigns in the household, Dad comes home and his day hasn't been any better, so his guidance system is trashed with anger and resentment because he was passed over for promotion, again. His highly fueled energy system meets the chaos in the house and more yelling ensues. Finally everyone is so exhausted from the emotional trauma escape seems a much better option. So, escape in television, the internet, a beer, food, or some other form of mind numbing activity seems a better bargain.

Does that sound familiar?

This process of handling life is a conditioned one and is driven by the Law of Survival. We get disappointed because "life" hasn't gone the way we want it to, we look for someone to blame, someone to project our disappointment onto, then we judge ourselves or the other, and want revenge for the disappointment. Our inner guidance system interprets this as "I am going to die" so survival becomes the automatic reaction - it is primary. This is the default system built into the system back in the Mammalian Cycle 820 million years ago. We needed it to get here.

Now, consciousness has guided the evolvement of our ability to "see" what is going on consciously, We have come to the thresh hold where we have the opportunity claim our power as a conscious co-creator. We do that through learning to use the inner guidance system to move us into the "vortex" (Abraham-Hicks) of our own connection to Source Energy. We know we are there when our internal guidance system signal lets us know we feel good. When we feel angry, hurt, disappointed, etc. our guidance system is letting us know we have moved away for alignment with source energy or the vortex. What we don't want lets us know what we do want, as Abraham-Hicks repeats again and again. Because we have been operating out of a domination system (Wink) for so long, many of us do not know there is any other "system" to operate from. It is time to learn!!

Living In Choice depends on it.

The definition of cult

Listening to the news tonight, I heard this report: Texas evangelical leader Robert Jeffress, the Baptist megachurch pastor who introduced Rick Perry Friday at the Values Voter Summit, said that Mormonism is a "cult" and he does not believe Mitt Romney is a Christian. "That is a mainstream view, that Mormonism is a cult," Jeffress told reporters at the summit. "Every true, born again follower of Christ ought to embrace a Christian over a non-Christian."
As I said in my last newsletter, "ignorance is dangerous," and if one takes the time to look up the definition of the word "cult" one finds this definition from Chambers Dictionary of Etymology: "Cult n. 1617, worship or homage;later, system of religious worship (1679, in writings of William Penn); borrowed through French culte, learned borrowing from Latin, and directly from Latin cultus (genitive cultus) cultivation, care, attention, worship, from cult, stem of colere to till, cultivate, attend to; see COLONY."

According to this definition all religions are cults because they are a "system of religious worship."

According to Chambers, the definition of religion is : "Religion n. Probably before 1200 religiun a religious order, community of monks or nuns, in Anrene Riwle; borrowed from Old French religion religious community, learned borrowing from Latin, and borrowed directly from Latin religionem (nominative religio) respect for what is sacred, probably with the original meaning of care (for worship and traditions);..."

The origin of the word "Christ" is also interesting. Again from Chambers: "Christ n. Middle English and Old English Crist the anointed one, the Lord's Anointed, Jesus Christ. (about 830, in Vespasian Psalter, 675, according to the Peterborough Chronicle): borrowed from Latin Christus, from Greek Christos, noun use of christos annointed, from chrien anoint (see Chrism). The Greek is a translation of Hebrew mashiah annointed of the Lord), MESSIAH. This word and its derivatives and related forms such as chrism, were rarely spelled with ch in Middle English even after the 1400's. The spelling Christ did not become standard until after 1500. The more frequent name in Old English is Haelend healer, Savior:..." And Chambers finishes the etymology with, "Sometime in the late 1300's it became common to write the name Christ and words associated with it, such as Christian, with a capital letter, but the practice did not become fixed until the 1600's."

When the word Christ or Christian is associated with it's roots one discovers the designation indicated a behavior of a person or a group. That behavior was to heal, care for, and to teach truth.

It is important to look at the original origin of words, systems, and beliefs. To not do so is ignorance.

The 6th Night Sept. 23 to Oct. 10

It has been some time since I posted a new blog, but the mood has come back around again so my intention is to get back in the blog saddle and begin again.

When I take the time to really see what is going on in the world, it looks pretty dark and dismal. It is easy to see the "powers that be" spiraling out of control in a world that has gotten away from them. The powers can no longer control the masses as they once did. The old paradigm of domination is getting weaker and weaker. People sense this weakness and are discovering within themselves the desire, power, and motivation to take action toward change. However, it is valuable to see that change cannot come from within the system, or by fighting the system. Real change can only come from exposing the system for what it is. The only way to do that is through nonviolent action. Fighting the system, blaming the system, or condemning the system is only playing into the system, because the system will only scapegoat the complainer, and use its propaganda machine to discredit the revolutionary. Or, if the revolutionary succeeds through violence to achieve power, it will only become the System. The name has been changed, but the actions remain the same. Domination is the name of the game.

There is a greater power Source than the Domination system and it is the Natural and Cosmic Laws of the Universe. These powers created by the One Source of all things put them in place so that order, creation, love, harmony and life could become a reality. The current ruling science of materialism does not include those source energies, so they have been forgotten, lost, demonized, or left in the past as ancient myth. It is time to resurrect our myths so that we may have a frame work for building a world without domination.

To this end, I use the Mayan Prophetic Calendar and the Teachings of the Ancient Essenes as guide to life. The MPC keeps me abreast of the current Universal energies available for our use. I have blogged about this calendar in the past so won't go into the overall picture of it. We are currently living the 9th and final wave of the evolution of consciousness according to Carl Johan Calleman, one of the major Mayanologist of the day.

According to Calleman Sept. 23-Oct 10th, the 6th Night is called God Before Dawn and a time of resting and fine tuning unity consciousness. The 7th Day and final period is Oct. 11 through Oct. 28th and provides the highest expression of unity consciousness.

What is important about this time is that it signals the weakest point for the old consciousness of materialism and the reign of the "domination" system (Walter Wink, New Testament) and, therefore, opens the door to a "new world" devoid of domination. The domination system is characterized by tyranny, control, scapegoating, money/power as god, propagandizing to dominate, greed, false national pride, etc. It is easy to see that all systems are broken, medical, governmental, religious, educational, judicial and political. Consciousness, which is primary, is supporting a world of cooperation, unity, and and peace. But, whether or not we experience those conditions is up to each of us. We can't participate with unity consciousness if we are not awake to it, if we have not done the internal work necessary to wake from the hypnotic trance necessary for the System to exist. Jesus, the Essene, said, "Happy are you, that you hunger for the truth, for I will satisfy you with the bread of wisdom. Happy are you, that knock, for I will open to you the door of life." (The Essene Gospel of Peace Book I) In each of these statements there is the action that one need to take to benefit from what is already available.

Ignorance is dangerous and when the ignorant are running the show the show becomes dangerous. Look through the sham of the Dominating System in charge of what happens in Washington, so that you can see that the "powers that be" are not concerned with individual human quality of life, even though the propaganda machine, even the language of bills passed at the capitol are named to make one think otherwise. Even the names of organizations, like "homeland security" suggests protecting the people from harm, when the reality is much different. The "freedoms" we each have given up in the process of protection from "harm" is incredibly more harming to our freedom than any outside threat. The proof is in the pudding, as the old saying goes, since the biggest ticket item in the budget is for the military. The truth is war never makes peace. This There is a need by the domination system to convince the people through fear that their lives are at stake. The propaganda machine, as Wink so clearly states, "Propaganda is not merely deception, then. It is the manufacture of idolatry. It is not enough that people be misinformed about the nature of the System, for powerful disconfirming truths could easily slip in to shatter such illusions. But if you can cause people to worship the Beast, you have created a public immune to truth. As studies of cognitive dissonance show, worshipers do not surrender their beliefs in the presence of disconfirming facts. They simply adjust their beliefs to neutralize the facts." (UNMASKING THE DOMINATION SYSTEM)

Perhaps, the most pressing step to take in order to see the Domination System for what it is; one must come to terms with the FACT that the System does not care about you or your welfare. More devastating than that may be the FACT that it only exists because you have bought into it, support it, and are complicit with it. Once you grow through the awfulness of that reality, then you find the truth and a new life.

Until then, everything you think, say, do IS the system.

The fundamental assumptions of the domination system according to Wink are:

1. The need to control society and prevent chaos requires some to dominate others.
2. Those who dominate may use other people as a means to achieve their goals.
3. Men are better equipped by nature to be dominant than women, and some races are naturally suited to dominate others.
4. A valued end justifies the use of any means.
5. Violence is redemptive, the only language enemies understand.
6. Ruling or managing is the most important of all social functions.
7. Therefore rulers and managers should be rewarded by extra privileges and greater wealth of all kinds.
8. Those who have the military strength, who control the most advanced technology, the greatest wealth, or the largest markets, are the ones who will and should survive.
9. Money is the most important value.
10. The possession of money is a sign and proof of political and social worth.
11. The production of material goods is more important than the production of healthy and normal people and of sound human relationships (or the former automatically produces the latter).
12. Property is sacred, and property ownership is an absolute right.
13. In an organization or nation, great size is proof of its power and value.
14. Institutions are more important than people.
15. There is no higher value or being or power than the state. If there is a God, God is the protector and patron of the state.
16. God, if there is one, is not revealed to all, but only the select individuals or nations and their rulers and priesthood.

If you agree with any of these statements, then you have bought the Domination System as God. This delusion, then, is what we fight for making the Nation "God" - a false image or idol. Couched in the language of "patriotism" it is unthinkable to question the acts of the Nation God even if the action is clearly self-serving. We make heros of our fallen soldiers, and treat those who return home alive, but broken, as used up material the Nation God no longer needs. Check out how many vets are in prison, homeless or have committed suicide. The numbers are staggering! Rather than holding the Nation God accountable, the propaganda machine scapegoats the vet - the way of the Domination System - people are expendable.

I know, this is hard to see, or even to want to see, because it calls into question every thing you hold sacred. We won't let go of this system easily. But, in the last analysis, to move past it, we must!

This story is not a new one. It may be as old as 10,000 years which makes it even harder to see because we don't have anything to compare it with. Jesus exposed the Domination System (Roman Rule)for what it was, but by the 2nd century C.E. his message was lost to another system having bought into the Domination System. It found its home in the Vatican. Violence, murder, genocide, ignorance, scapegoating, and propaganda became its modus operandi. It set the stage for the next 3000 years. Now, Nations, corporations, political parties, the powerful having learned how effectively this system works to get power and wealth, and to keep it. It is pervasive, insidious, and dangerous. Those are the characteristics of the Domination. To fight it with its own tools only feeds it. We must find ways to expose it for what it is rather than condemn it or blame it.
