Prevention as an Equal Money System is the Best Cure

What we are seeing in our current system, our Capitalist System, our Consumerism System, our Parenting, Schooling, HealthCare, Food-Industry, Military, Entertainment, etc.. -System is that there are a LOT of PROBLEMS - we are in a veeery problematic situation here on earth, and the foundation of our current systems is one of 'damage controlling' the consequences that have been created in the past and that we are still creating within not practically living the statement that 'prevention is the Best Cure'.

It's fascinating that not only in our personal lives, but also within the national and global major infrastructures, the 'official institutions', the laws, the businesses, the market systems, the justice systems, we are making small and big and huge decisions based on REACTION instead of prevention.

For instance, a recent example is how when the banks started going bankrupt, as a PROBLEM that was the result of reactive rather than preventative decisions made in the past, our REACTION was to 'pump tax money into the banks', so as to keep up our HOPE, as reaction to the despair that we experienced, a hope that would obviously only last for so long because of how the entire infrastructure of our monetary system is already undermined within this belief in 'infinite growth' within and as the consumerist/capitalist mentality, a belief that is a complete ILLUSION, which we now are seeing within the consequences of resource-depletion and global recessions that are playing out.

So, basically, instead of stopping for a moment and taking the road of common sense within investigating the system and coming to terms with its flaws and plain unsustainable nature, we went 'noooo!', reacting with fear of losing our 'precious system', somehow believing that 'change', whatever kind, is 'bad' - and chose to keep up appearances within trying to 'save' the system by making decisions that would in the long run only create more unpleasant consequences that we would sooner or later have to face.

This is an interesting point, and if we are self-honest and have a look at how we approach situations in our personal lives, we may notice that we do the exact same thing --- we will wait for problems to occur, and then, instead of investigate the origin point of the problem within making sure that it will not occur again, we REACT to the 'problem' with fear of LOSING a part of what we had come to define as 'our life' and thus 'who we are' - and would do just about anything to just 'make it go away' so that we can once again nest ourselves back into our comfort zone of good feelings as basically the HOPE that our lives will work out the way we want it to. But do we ever really consider the CONSEQUENCES of the decisions that we make within and as REACTIONS to situations as what will eventually play out later in our lives and in our environment? We do not!

And so what happens within this is that more problems start to come up, things that we had apparently 'not foreseen' - like our partner leaving us, our child rebelling, getting diagnosed with diabetes or any other type of illness, losing our job/house/money, war breaking out, entire countries going bankrupt, nature playing up with natural disasters... - on the small as well as on the big scale, things start to escalate out of control eventually because we had not for one moment taken the time to investigate the consequences of our decisions, investigate how reality functions, how the mind as the reactive system functions, how nature as a system functions, how the economic SYSTEM functions and therein investigate what would happen within these systems as a REACTION to our ACTION.

If our ACTION is driven by an internal REACTION, we will never see reality clearly, we will only see 'what we want/need/desire' and our FEAR of not getting what we want/need/desire, and within this we will always take the easy road to get to what we want/need/desire --- and therein, we do not consider that everything in this world/reality is a system that have a specific reaction/response/outplay to our ACTIONS --- its like mixing chemicals, if you're not aware of the compounds of what it is that you're mixing and how they will react to each other as what the outcome will be of the mixture, you're gonna have an explosion or worse.

At Desteni, we aim at prevention rather than reaction - to create the CURE for the mess that we as Mankind have gotten ourselves into - through thorough investigation of all systems that currently exist here in reality, those within and those without. So join us if you are interested in building a world that is best for all in all ways.

2012 Is it the Hand of God that Pushes us into Destruction?

"Sometimes the very things that we fight against are actually the hand of God trying to push us into a new season."

Interesting statement.
We humans have been fighting against many things throughout our existence here on earth, there have been many many wars and conflicts in which many many beings have died in various gruesome ways. Times have always changed through these conflicts, but can we truly honestly have a look at our changed world and say that it was 'for the better', that this was in any way 'God's Master Plan'?

Have the 'seasons' that changed through conflict and wars not only brought more conflict and confusion about the times that we are living in? Have the fears, uncertainty and insecurity about where we are going with life on earth not only risen along with our expansion in scientific research into exactly how much we have made a mess of our planet - because the only constant throughout 'Human Evolution' has always only been the steadfast deterioration of our environment and our lack of ability or rather will to co-exist peacefully with other lifeforms on Earth?

"Sometimes the very things that we fight against...."
In every fight there is a push or a pull, be it Hitler's army marching through Europe or parents enforcing their rules and patterns onto their children, we feel threatened and so we push back as a survival mechanism, thus war comes about. Though neither Hitlers' ideology nor most parents' education have proven to be what is best for life on Earth, so it is safe to say that those 'seasons' that the 'hand of God' is apparently trying to push us into indeed cannot be allowed. Because, really, it isn't the 'hand of God' pushing us, it is the hand of humans with power that WANT Their Will to be Law, humans who BELIEVE themselves to be 'God', the all-mighty and all-knowing, yet who unfortunately have no clue about or interest in how reality actually functions and what would in fact be best for all beings as they act purely out of self-interest, just like those that then push back act out of self-interest as self-preservation. These 'instinctive' ego-driven acts of survival then eventually give birth to WAR as both sides push and pull to 'get theirs'.

The 'season' that we find ourselves in at this moment in time is one of great conflict, just think of the 'Arab Spring', and this season came about through exactly the same conflicts. In fact, just try to think of one moment through human history that there was no conflict, there is none. Thus it speaks of great ignorance to believe that the Human has in any way been 'moving in the right direction' as if 'pushed by the hand of God' through the 'changing of the seasons', if it had, there would be no more wars, there would be no famine, no poverty, no children dying on the streets, no animal abuse, no exploitation, no sexual abuse,...

 In the above quote there is only the desperate search for a belief in a 'higher purpose' to the mess that we are clearly in here on Earth, yet no common sense practical insight what so ever. To believe that it is the 'hand of God' that 'pushes us into new seasons' is to basically deny all and any responsibility of the Human Being and its actions and to thus justify all that 'happens' as the Human sits passively and apparently powerlessly by while the world turns to shit, not doing fuck-all to bring about real and lasting change, as apparently it is 'the hand of God' that is 'doing this to us', and so all we can do is fight like a little child against the 'powers that be', only creating more wars and conflicts, never noticing that we are only fighting ourselves and the belief and feeling of inferiority that we have bestowed upon ourselves.

In all this, we have missed the simple solution to end all war and conflict once and for all, to end the ever changing seasons of misery, which is to stand up and realize that there is no 'hand of God', there is no 'divine intervention', there is only us here, which means that we realize our responsibility, collectively and individually. It is to stand up and see, realize and understand that we are God on Earth and that all that changes here is by our own hands, always. We decide, either we create war and conflict by remaining ignorant, self-interested beings or we create heaven on earth by realizing who we really are and taking responsibility for ALL that happens on this planet and directing it to what is best for all Life.

Halleluja, God has a purpose for my Pain!

"God has purpose for your pain, a reason for your struggle and a compensation for your faithfulness. Don't give up" (Spiritual/religious quote from Spiritual/religious person)

...if you were dying of hunger due to an ineffective monetary system, for which there exist answers and practical solutions to end all hunger and poverty in the world, what would be your reaction to hearing a quote like the one above?

If you were aware that you were in that situation not by your own doing but because you 'lucked out' by being born in a family that just so happened to live in a Somalian waste-land, forgotten by the world, with no way or means to be able to make money and survive in the global system of MONEY, would the quote pasted above not seem like the greatest EVIL?

Would you not be faced with this rich/wealthy person coming to you trying to sell you the idea that your suffering in some way lies in the hands of God and NOT in the hands of those that hold the power in this world through the money they possess - which is all those living in the elite western countries, who participate in the global system of consumerism and in that keeping alive the manifestation of poverty and starvation in those 'forgotten parts' of the world - wherein they are basically saying that they have no interest in actually changing the system that they themselves participate in each day, which is the direct cause of the existence of the suffering in the lives of so many, and will rather choose to delude themselves that life on earth is in some way directed by the hand of God, thus justifying their pursuit of personal satisfaction and happiness in a global system wherein very obviously each being in each country is completely and entirely INTERCONNECTED and thus directly responsible for all that moves on this planet?

Will you then continue to place your trust in God, if you were aware of how 'God' is used by the wealthy in this world to justify your suffering, so that they would not feel guilty anymore about not doing a fuck to change your living conditions, even though they literally hold your life in their hands as they are on the 'demanding' side of the money-coin and thus decide how money and resources flows and moves in this world? Would you in that moment, while staring into the eyes of those that try to cover up the FACT that they choose to abandon you as a life-form in order to pursue personal pleasure that they deem 'more important', by bringing 'God' into the conversation in an attempt to make their self-interest sound divine and spiritual, not realize that the human being is the most EVIL, heartless creature that exists here on this planet and deserves total extermination for the suffering that it allows and accepts in the lives of 'others' each and every single day, in each and every single moment?

What is the 'struggle' implied in this quote? Is that 'struggle' and the fact that soooo many people in this world are 'struggling', not the result of the monetary system that each one of us participates in each and every single moment? And where does that monetary system come from? God? Or Man? And if Man created money, which should be obvious, and thus also 'struggle', then why is Man turning to God as if he has got something to do with it? Is this not just the Human completely abdicating his responsibility for his creation as the money system - which places other humans in positions of poverty and starvation?

"Are you a Slave to God or is God a slave to You and your desire for daddy way past adolescence ?" (Eleonora Gozzini, "Day 115: The Purpose of Pain according to God")

So, maybe the problem of why there exists struggle in this world and why God nor Man has ever stopped the struggle and created a Heaven on Earth is because the Human is too willing to accepts itself as a slave to a higher being/force/creator/institution and thus believe that 'everything in life has its purpose', no matter what kind of fucked up things happen in our life or the lives of others - than to actually stand accountable for what it has created and allowed to be created here on earth. We are far too willing to place the burden on God's shoulders but are not willing to place ourselves in God's shoes, considering the mess that he has been assigned to clean up as what humanity has done to this place - does that then not make us the abusers of 'God'? Using 'God' as OUR SLAVE, who is just supposed be there for us and forgive us when we've done 'something wrong', love us unconditionally, have mercy on our souls no matter to what extent we fuck up his creation -- and all the while we pretend that it is the other way around, so that we wouldn't be faced with the evil that is ourselves and our lack of respect for Life.

What if we realized that we could stop the struggle in the lives of the many in this world - and that this 'struggle' was never 'life', because have a look: there are many beings living absolutely comfortable lives, with never a struggle, never a fight for money and survival, everything going their way, just living out their already predesigned 'life-paths' - because they have MONEY. So, what would be the solution to stop the struggle that so many endure because they have no money??? Exactly - we give them money! There, simple as that. End poverty, end starvation, end human trafficking and economic slavery - yay.

Investigate Equal Money, listen to the Interview Series "Bernard Poolman - What the FAQ - Equal Money System" and read the books "What the FAQ is an Equal Money System - Volume 1" and "What the FAQ is an Equal Money System - Volume 2" - and realize how us as humanity standing in the shoes of God and actually taking responsibility for our creation by giving to all as we would like to receive for ourselves would actually not be that difficult.
