Value vs Worth

Value vs Worth: is there any difference and does it matter? Worth means “the value equivalent to that of someone or something under consideration; the level at which someone or something deserves to be valued or rated.” (Google Dictionary) Value means “the regard that something is held to deserve; the importance, worth, or usefulness of something.” (Google Dictionary) So going by these definitions they basically mean the same thing. What’s it worth to you? Is it of great value? Now lets apply this to something that does matter, your life.

Inherent value, do you in and of yourself have value? To whom? Why? This is our topic today because I am sure you have asked these questions before. I know I have, and I have finally come to a viable answer. This question is also essential to a Natural Law/Resource Based Economy/Love Based Society.

A quick review of today’s society shows that value is based on what something or someone brings to the table. How big the bank account is coupled with the amount of credit a person has denotes a person’s value in our present Capitalistic system. There is much more to value than economics however. Think about this carefully, because you may not be aware of the purpose certain people play in your life. This exercise falls into the category of gratitude. For instance the bus driver is there to get you where you are going but also to guide you or possibly share companionship. Those who ride the same bus every day at the same time get to know the bus driver and the value of that relationship grows. A person who is always smiling and laughing is of value to all whom they are around. Someone who dresses nicely, feels good about themself, and radiates this energy everywhere they go is of value to society. It matters not how much money they have in their bank account!

Have you thought of anyone with no inherent value yet? How about the villain? Make your choice carefully, because they are plentiful in our society. I think you know without a villain there are no heroes. Ok, so how about a homeless person? Do they have any value? What purpose do they serve?

The purpose we all serve is to our Higher Self/ Soul. We are here for a purpose and the purpose itself has value to you if to no one else. What makes a person homeless? No home right! It is of course a lot deeper than that. The person is homeless because they have made choices that lead to their present situation. It could be they lost a job, or are too unstable in mind to hold a job, or they simply do not wish to play the human game, which brings up another topic – jobs.

Does a person need a job to have worth/value? Do they have to “contribute to society in monetary form” to have worth/value? Do they have value just for being themselves? What if you did nothing, would you still have value, or to state it another way, do you have inherent value? Does a person in a vegetative state or coma have value? The answer is blowing in the wind…life is a balance and needs both those in need and those to help. This is a duality after all. It just depends on which role you decide to play. (This choice is usually made unconsciously or as some would say, it is made by a higher power) Are you a hero or a villain; charity case or welfare worker? It really matters not, because we all have inherent value or else we would not be here! We are all a part of the story. Like opinions and assholes we each have a story, but that is a another blog.

No matter what you do or don’t do, you have value to yourself at least, but probably to others you have no idea even exist. So Yes is the answer! Life is not hard although we often make it that way. Be nice to yourself today and see the beauty in your existence! “a Love Based Society” knows the value of each and every person while making sure they know it too!

Renewable Energy Only

In a Love Based Economy/Society (LBE) we utilize renewable energy sources only.  Energy is free and abundant in a LBE because each individual realizes that everything is energy.  Money is no longer necessary because it is simply a middle man or motivator if you will.  In a LBE, Love is the motivator there is no need for tokens.

In a LBE no one ever uses more energy than they need at any one time.  The days of having every light and appliance running in the house at the same time is over because each person is operating from Love and an honest care for their fellow beings.  Efficiency is taken as a matter of respect for life and responsibility is as natural as being aware of the impact your actions.

Energy is now created at the point of need so the need for power lines strung all over the place is gone, meaning the beauty of the landscape has returned.  Since renewable energy is the only form energy takes now, many systems are utilized depending on the available resources in a certain area.  Zero point generators and many other systems are in place so that each device being used comes with its own power source built right in.  No more power lines, just a simple device providing all the energy needed for that locale.   Please see this website for more info, http://www.panacea-bocaf.org/zeropointenergy.htm.

Energy like everything else in a LBE is available to everyone equally, and more importantly free will is respected.  Now that Love energy is predominant in society love is expressed by everyone in all situations.  Even if something unloving manifests it is seen as temporary and allowed to pass without drama.  The less energy given to it, the less likely it is to persist.  What you resist persists!

Society transformed to a Love based system once the previous fear based society was allowed to pass.  The people finally woke up and saw just how unnatural a fear based system is and how much energy is required to maintain it.  Love is a natural state and requires little energy to manifest, however it does require a certain awareness, acceptance, openness, and trust to operate from.  It is like slipping into a warm stream and swimming in the gentle waters of Great Spirits flowing Love.  Once in the flow it is not necessary to leave and in fact you will be inviting everyone you know to join you.  May the flow be with you.

Ownership Revealed Conclusion

In conclusion of our series on ownership, ownership as a concept in the LBE (Love Based Economy/Society) is abandoned because each person realizes the illusion inherent in ownership.  We as an enlightened society, embrace honesty and truth to the point that it pervades each aspect of society.

The idea of paying for the right to use something that was originally meant for all beings to share simply is no longer acceptable.  The present conditions we impose on each other where created for the economic system to operate.  Think about it for a minute.

You do work of some type and are paid for it, you then turn around and pay others for services you need to survive. It is a contrived system that separates and stratifies society, and simply does not allow equality!  This system served its purpose and now it is time to move on to a cashless system where we no longer have to get something before we give of ourselves.  Each person in a LBE realizes the source of all love, accepts their role in this love, and acts with compassion.

Gaia or Nature truly “owns” everything on earth as she provides the             materials and can destroy anything we create.  The idea of ownership when you really think about it is absurd.  Even if you create something wonderful, it is not yours because you got the inspiration from Holy Spirit, and used materials from Gaia or Nature, all you did was put them together in your own unique way.  Now yes this is a great gift and makes the world a beautiful place to live, but it is not ownership.  It is giving.

With no ownership this frees us to live a life of safety and security.  If citizens know they have food to eat, a warm place to sleep and other people to love and support them doesn’t this provide a powerful platform to live your life from?  There is no concern about who’s home you live in, or who’s food you eat or who’s clothing you wear, because you know in your heart that it is yours as much as anyone’s.  Each person in a LBE honors possession as the law, and at the same time each person only takes what they need never taking that which is being used by another.  In each moment they think about others’ needs above their own.  This is a compassionate and loving way to live; this is a Love Based Economy.

Ownership Revealed Part 2

So you think you own something, such as a gold watch.  You wear it proudly and use it every day.  One day it disappears, you have no idea what happened to it.  Did you really own it?  Do you still own it?  As the definition reads from yesterday’s blog you did own it, but now you do not.  Possession is 9/10th of the law, or so it would seem.  I would say that it is 100% the law of ownership.

Say you met with a friend and notice they are wearing the watch you once owned.  Whose watch is it?  Does it matter that your friend found the watch in the company bathroom?  Do you automatically assume they stole the watch from you?  I hope not.  If you still wish to enjoy the watch, you could explain what happened and ask them politely to give the watch to you.  Since they are in possession of the watch, they own it.  If you are compassionate and caring you may get the watch back. It is like the watch is making the decisions and choosing the person to be with.  And in a way this is exactly what is happening.  Remember like energy attracts like energy and if you are resonating a match to the watch it will come back into your life.  I once lost and found a ring over three times before it decided I did not want it.  I never found the ring again.  It is not about owning certain objects; it is about enjoying the use of them and then gratefully passing them along when you are done with them.

I used to have a camera that I was getting tired of and wished to get a better one, but I would not spend the money.  A few days later someone stole my camera and my prayers were answered!  I now had the excuse I needed to go buy a new camera and I did.  I owned the camera while it was in my possession and then I did not.  The important point here is that I always have what I need.  The resources present themselves as the need arises!

It is also important to know that ownership as most people understand it today is an illusion.  You do not own the land, your car, or anything really.  But you do have the use of anything you desire to claim in a way that honors the Best Interests of all concerned.

Right now this means paying for certain items so that you have permission to use them.  Of course you are not paying for the item, but the honor of using it!  If someone gives you a gift card, they are transferring their honor to you, thus making it a gift!

Ownership then is really a Spiritual Agreement made energetically between two individuals or Great Spirit herself.  Whether energy is exchanged in the form of money, labor, barter, or Love does not matter.  The water you drink, the land you walk on and the trees you sleep under were given to you as a gift from Great Spirit.  Are you using them with honor?

Ask not – what do I own, but do I have what I need?  I bet the answer is Yes, because Great Spirit is a wonderful provider (as long as you allow it).

The etiquette of ownership is another topic so please do not assume from this blog that I condone taking anything without asking first!  Get permission, either verbally, in writing, or by (sales) contract.  Even in a cashless society, the rules of etiquette still apply.  Stay tuned! Ownership concludes in the next blog.

Ownership Revealed Part 1

Ownership is purely a man made concept that has existed for thousands of years in some form or another.  The question I ask here is simply this, “How does ownership serve you”?  Is it in the Highest and Best Good of the Human Race & Earth?

Ownership as defined by the Encyclopedia Britannica is, “the legal relation between a person (individual, group, corporation, or government) and an object. The object may be corporeal, such as furniture, or completely the creature of law, such as a patent, copyright, or annuity; it may be movable, such as an animal, or immovable, such as land. Because the objects of property and the protected relations are different in every culture and vary according to law, custom and economic system and the relative social status of those who enjoy its privileges, it is difficult to find a least common denominator of “ownership.” Ownership of property probably means at a minimum that one’s government or society will help to exclude others from the use or enjoyment of one’s possession without one’s consent, which may be withheld except at a price.”

What do you own?  Think carefully here.  Are you sure?  Is it because you paid for it?  Or is it simply that you claimed possession?  Can you do with it as you please?  Does it bring you joy?  Is it time to re-assess your viewpoint on ownership?

Is your partner, wife, husband, boyfriend, girlfriend, child an object?  Of course not, so please do not treat them as one.  Human relationships sometimes slip into ownership situations and this is regrettable and unhealthy.  I simply mention this as a reminder of what you already know – you cannot be owned, and neither can anyone else – at least not without their permission.  If someone is a slave they have chosen this experience for the advancement of their soul, but this diverts from our topic today.  Suffice it to say there are no victims, only volunteers.

Copyright is a legal construction so the person with this legal right can claim profit.  I ask for you to consider this carefully.  Who really owns the words written here or the electricity that brings them to you?  The reason copyright law exists is so money can be claimed; however it is not always the person who made the copyrighted material who profits from it.  Copyright law is simply a construct under which some get wealthy and other do not.  It is a limitation imposed by the powers at be.  Now I can choose to not copyright my writing, because these words do not come from me but from Holy Spirit.  Anyone who wishes can wade in the river of knowledge!  This goes for any creation, a building, a computer, a book, a recipe, you name it – the idea came from Holy Spirit!  The resources came from Gaia and your part in the process is the hands to mold it.  Just because you played a part of a Divine process does not mean you own the creation!  If I make the muffler for a car, do I own the car?  If I make a book cover do I own the book?  Not hardly.

What is “real” about real estate?  What are you paying for?  Could it be that you are paying for the right to use the property as long as you abide by certain rules and pay the proper taxes and fees?  Why are you giving your power to some official or banker?  What will happen if you claim your inner power and God given right to live as you see fit?  Is what you are thinking in the Best Interest of Everyone involved?

The blog continues tomorrow, so we will meet again soon!

Ask not what do I own, but Do I have what I need?  I would bet the answer is Yes, because Great Spirit is a wonderful provider (as long as you allow it).

I did not get into the etiquette of ownership so please do not assume from this blog that I condone taking anything without asking first!  Get permission, either verbally, in writing or by (sales) contract.  Even in a cashless society, the rules of etiquette still apply.  I write about a Perfect Society on the website and you may enjoy reading this article published several years ago.

In conclusion, ownership as a concept in the LBE (Love Based Economy/Society) is abandoned because each person realizes the illusion inherent in ownership.  We as an enlightened society, embrace honesty and truth to the point that it pervades each aspect of society. The idea of paying for the right to use something that was originally meant for all beings to share simply is no longer acceptable.  The present conditions we impose on each other where created for the economic system to operate.  Think about it for a minute.

A Loving Universe

As much as I would love to see the world shift unilaterally over to a Resource Based Economy it feels like the more probable outcome will be small pockets of change growing like an infection, spreading to areas of less resistance first and then to the mainstream once the bubble bursts.

I can see it happening now all over the globe!  People are adopting sustainable living methods and lessening their dependence not only on oil but also on money.  Remembering of course that both are simply tools which have been grossly misused.  I for one am not ready to give up oil completely and we should not have to.  It simply needs to be used in a responsible manner.  Using it as a fuel needs to stop, we have other options now.  Using it in manufacturing is one way it can contribute to our future, and even this will need to be modified to be sustainable.  I must remind you that oil comes from Mother Earth and eventually it will return there.  How we use it in the interim is up to us, the consequences will vary.

A few principles are all we need to proceed from here.  One is “do onto others as you would have done onto you.”  Imagine you own the land being mined, imagine you are an animal or tree growing on the land!  What is best now?  We are not alone here on Gaia and with respect and forethought we can all live in harmony!  It is time we left our arrogance behind and lived a Loving Conscious Life.

Secondly “consider future generations of our ancestors who will be coming to take our place!”  The Native Americans say to plan for seven generations.  This is not so hard when you consider the connection we all have.  These generations are our future selves!  Just because life is eternal does not give humans the right to abuse it.  The future does not have to include humans!  We all know what happens to people who abuse the system, right?

Leaders like Gandhi, ML King, and St. Francis showed the way to live a humble life while at the same time standing up to authority.  “Peace thru non-action is the way of our future.”  Holding peaceful and loving thoughts no matter what you face takes courage and fortitude.  Simply staying focused on your morals and principles is all it takes.  This need not be difficult; the more people who do this the easier it gets, especially when we are all based in Love.  The other details are just that, details.  The core must be Love in both action and non-action.  All of life must be considered in our actions and we must work together for the betterment of all!  Lastly, “Interdependence of community is the way of the future!”  We live in a Loving Universe, there is no other option.

Entertainment in a LBE

en·ter·tain·ment

–noun

1. The act of entertaining; agreeable occupation for the mind; diversion; amusement

2. Something affording pleasure, diversion, or amusement.

3. Hospitable provision for the needs and wants of guests. (Dictionary.com)

In a Love Based Society entertainment is integral to daily life.  Since all work is volunteer almost all tasks are engaged from Joy, Love and Sharing.  Even if the task is dirty, difficult or tedious the person performing this task is enjoying themselves simply in the sharing of their talents.

Each person has many hours each day to enjoy the simple pleasures of life and so many activities are available to amuse!  In fact it is the number one occupation since the basics of life are provided by machines and automation.

Movies are available in many forms, including 2D, 3D, and 4D.  They are available at the theatre, dinner theatre, private showings, amusement parks, businesses, homes and on individual viewing devices.  The power of this medium is fully understood now and all movies support the LBE.  Nothing is produced which creates fear.

Most programming is educationally based in some way.  The news informs about current events, show cases individuals from around the community and simply reports information in a neutral format.  Movies are both entertaining and didactic.  TV programming much like today covers all subjects, and is informative, educational and entertaining.  Fear is no longer even an issue since all citizens are born into a Loving environment and raised on these principles.  Love is our natural way, so it comes easily for each and every person!

Virtual reality is now common place so each person is able to enjoy an immersive environment that is only limited by a person’s imagination.  Much like a holodeck made famous on Star Trek, the individual can enjoy many diverse experiences which are so thorough that even the person’s body is perceived as a certain role and in appropriate form, meaning that any body shape, form, gender, species, and/or color can be experienced.  With machines providing all basic needs people are left to invent and develop the technology to amazing levels, the holodeck  is the result of these efforts.

Also since resources are no longer wasted on war or conflict this leaves an abundance for entertainment.  A LBE sees the larger picture that each person is merely a player, an actor if you will, so war is still recreated in the holodeck for educational purposes such as history, personal growth and mental therapy, but no one is harmed, and in fact it is used to heal past life wounds.  Entertainment in a LBE encompasses all aspects of daily living making life both fun and beneficial for all.  We are each guests in our own creation!

Money in a LBE

In a Love Based Economy/Society (LBE) standard of exchange no longer comes in the form of money.  Trade still takes place but without money, however this is not the central foundation, nor is it barter.  Instead things are based on gifting and resource allocation distributed equally.  All peoples are given their basic needs equally and since Love is the basis of society, compassion including the care of others comes first.  No one would take anything without considering the needs of others first.  Things of value are exchanged as gifts, such as flowers, a bottle of wine, a meal, jewelry, art or just about anything depending on the giver and receiver.

Whatever is needed is available from a central repository which operates much like a library.  If you need a tool or large item you simply walk in and borrow it for a certain amount of time, and when done you return it for someone else to use (it is the property of the people – not the state or government.  Each person is taught from birth that all material possessions belong to Mother Earth and her gift to anyone and everyone who respects and honors the gift).  Disposable items such as food or cleaning supplies are provided much as they are today, only there is no money involved.  Nothing harmful to the environment is ever distributed.

Since all work is done on a volunteer basis from the Love within each person, money is not used.  Resources belong to everyone and no one.  No one hoards anything at any time because they understand the Universal principles which are taught from birth. Love, caring, compassion and the well being of all life is central to all teachings.

No one person or organization is “in control” although there is an organization responsible for basic functions such as maintenance of the technology and infrastructure.  The Central Council of Elders oversees the computer which runs all functions on the entire planet.  Every aspect of life is attended to, although it is done in a seamless fashion.

If you need a gift for a special occasion you go to the market area and simply pick something out or you make it yourself.  It is an honor to have your creations appreciated.  The principle of “what you give is received” is fully understood by all.  Great care and effort is put into making great works of art and craft.  Giving them is the reward.

The basic items are produced as needed and not made in advance as they are today.  This saves resources and wastes nothing.  No extra space is needed for storage or warehousing.  Old items are recycled.  Requests are sent to the distribution center where it is picked up by the person who ordered it.  If you remember the store “Service Merchandise” the process works very similar to their concept, however a computer displays the item in 3D hologram and is not actually manufactured till requested.

The aspect of a LBE that makes it so desirable is a good standard of living for all citizens, no one is above another and no one is treated with privilege or disdain.  Since all resources are carefully monitored and maintained by a neutral computer system, equality and efficiency are assured.  Money is no longer a motivator in society!

Resources In A Material World

Since technology is so critical to a Resource Based Economy, so is manufacturing.  Products and supplies are still needed and this is the beauty of the new system. Manufacturing is all automated as is most all of the transport and distribution.

Raw products are mined by machines, processed and distributed by machines.  People are not need or very few will be around to oversee operations and make sure repairs are being done and the product is getting where it needs to go.  Eventually no one will be needed in this role.  The transition period will take a few years and is already in motion.

Most manufacturing these days is automated, if not totally, then partially.  This is mainly concerning mass production, because there will always be the individual shop owner that provides a personal touch to a service or product.  Disposable products such as flowers, food, and drinks are a good example.  Machines can pick flowers, but having a person give them to you adds that personal touch that we do not want to lose.  People are the reason for the season so to speak.  We all will have jobs that make us happy and fulfilled.

Construction and building maintenance is done by machines or volunteers.  The idea of resource management without the profit motive makes implementation so much easier.  People will work from a giving perspective and the rewards will be in the joy they bring to others.  Quality will be higher as will be the energy of the building.  We all know that the amount of love and care put into a building or anything really, is reaped by those who enjoy it daily.  Visit a custom or home build building and see if it does not have a more “homey” feeling.  The principle is “what you put into a job is what you get out” or what you give you receive.

Farming is automated as much as possible, but will still need a few people to oversee things and do the jobs a machine cannot.  This is why in the outlying regions rural maintenance cities will be hubs for farming.  Areas that are not suited to farming or mining are left as natural spaces, no hunting or fishing will be allowed.  Only nature watching, scientific study or communing will be allowed in these areas.  With the equal and efficient use of resources there is plenty of land left over for wild areas.

Farming will be warehoused to as large a degree as possible, with things like lettuce, tomatoes, berries, and other vegetables being grown in hydroponic warehouses that are lit with artificial light and clean filtered water systems which require no pesticides.  This can be done underground or wherever it is needed, even on artic, ocean or off world locations.  The possibilities are only as big as your imagination and desire.

Technological Age

The key to a resource based economy is the use of technology wherever possible.  This means it is used in almost every aspect of living.  Every standard system and social service will be automated including, food production, energy supply, maintenance, waste removal, recycling, health care, education, communication, transportation, construction/housing, and entertainment (except live performances).  Technology is woven into the very fabric of our existence and has become so natural it even enhances our bodies.

Humans are free now to pursue Spiritual, Artistic, Social, Interpersonal and Scientific interests.  Since no one has to work any longer society as a whole has grown in many fantastic ways.  Living is a joy now and happiness is at all time highs.  This is not to say that no one works or ever gets sad.  This is a part of life and now we are free to experience them on different terms, without fear.

Technology still needs minor maintenance and supervision, however even this will be automated.  Those who work do so as volunteers.  Most people work serving others in various capacities and do so from a deep desire to give.  The feminine energies are strong in this new Age of Aquarius.

Every industry is now dominated by technology.  Politics is gone, being replaced by a council of elders who earn their positions after many years of volunteer service.  Decisions are made by the central computer system on the basis of equal resource allocation and runs the entire world.  The council of elders oversees operations of the computer and governs the entire planet.  No borders exist between counties and instead geography is identified by regions of vegetation and location, such as the tropical central Americas or the Plains of Russia.  It is more earth based in natural systems.

Religion too has gone by the wayside as people awaken to the Spiritual force that resides in each of us.  People realize they do not need another to tell them what to do or how to act.  Guidance streams to them every second of every day from the one source.  Oneness is embraced in its true form.  Each person expresses this Spirituality differently and groups of like mind still gather, but not in the spirit of teacher/pupil, but of sharing and community.

There is no aspect of living that is not touched by technology; however each person has a choice to the degree of technology they enjoy.  Most will have technology do all for them, but some will choose to do things manually, for fun and growth.

Technology in a LBE becomes the servant on the lowest levels and people are elevated to higher levels of existence.  How they experience the world is still up to them and the major obstacles of money and lack have been removed.  Resources are shared equally so everyone is comfortable and their physical needs are met leaving plenty of room to grow in mental and spiritual areas.

Speak To Me

The new earth (a Love based Economy/Society, LBE) is made up of core cities all over the world close to, but not exactly where cities are located today.  Cities will come in four sizes, Metropolis (1 million or more population), Large city (100,000-999,999 population), small city (1,000 to 99,999) and rural maintenance city (under 1000 population).  97% of the population lives in a city.  The wilderness is left for wild things.

Each city is connected to all others by an inter-world communications net built right into any and all infrastructure.  Just as we have phone lines today each building has communication nodes installed which transmit signals wirelessly.  Each community/city has its own grid of wireless networks so anyone can speak to anyone else anywhere in the world from wherever they are with a good quality signal even from buildings below ground or in remote rural maintenance cities.  Like raindrop ripples on a smooth lake the calls go out to cover the world and beyond.

Communication in a LBE is conducted in diverse ways and as all else, it is totally free.  Public Comm Centers equipped with all available communication modes are provided in commonly used areas such as transportation centers, shopping areas, educational sites, and entertainment centers as a convenience to those who have misplaced theirs or simply as backup to personal communication devices.  All communicators automatically translate any known language, so talking to those in other countries is as simple as saying hello.

Traditional mail and email are still used on a limited basis for those who choose them, however most prefer telepathy or voice communication.  Protocols or guidelines are in place for the use of telepathy (a form of telepathy exists today, so this is not far off).  In a LBE each citizen respects the others right to privacy. It must be remembered that in a LBE all actions come from Love and are Loving.  As the ability to communicate by telepathy grows, learning to keep thoughts private is learned rather quickly. (In a LBE privacy is not an issue because we all realize Oneness, meaning the one mind knows all there is to know and we access it on a need to know basis.)

The new earth is characterized by a Universal understanding of Oneness and its ramifications.  Each thought, word and action is carefully processed by our increased mental capacity which has been growing over many years of evolution. (The future is now, consider how much more intelligent the average person is today compared to just 300 yrs ago).

A LBE exists today in a sparse peppered pattern all over the earth and it is growing daily.  The time has come and the masses are realizing they control their destiny, not some Government Official or Religious Leader.  Spirit works through each of us and as we awaken to the possibilities life will quickly follow suit.

Living Without Money

Living without money is the answer to the current economic crisis.  The current money system has been failing repeatedly since its inception.  This is a good thing because it is the way we evolve.  All systems on earth grow till they are no longer efficient and serving the needs and then they fail. Adaptations are made and a new modified system takes over and it seems little has changed. (This includes all living systems; the earth, plants, animals, and humans)

The roaring twenties are a good example where the economy grew very quickly, there were plenty of jobs and everyone (the middle and upper class) prospered.  By the thirties though the system had been stretched as far as it would go and it failed.  The great depression set in.  A new system was put into place and off the economy went fueled by war in the forties.

After the war, the system worked well till the seventies when we experienced our first energy crisis and it was declared that we needed to escape our dependence on foreign oil.  Things were propped up and life went on.  This is the cycle which continues today.  The government steps in and artificially props things up, mostly for corporations which run this country and everyone is lulled into a false sense of security.

The system is failing again and this time could be for good.  We have a wonderful opportunity to replace the old failing economic system with one that is vibrant and promises hundreds of years of prosperity for all.  This new Love Based Economy/Society (LBE) truly is an equalitarian society where everyone prospers to their own desire.

The documentary movie “Living Without Money” show cases one way in which we can make the shift from money to none.  They call it a gifting economy, and others call it modified barter, the important thing is that it works.  The system is still based on Love!  This is the critical part.  Without Love no system will work and at this point with the world teetering on destruction we need drastic changes.

I highly recommend seeing this movie so you can get an idea of how a gifting economy can get the world headed in the right direction.  You too can live a very comfortable life without money!  I am sure the system will look slightly different depending on the continent that you live on.  For instance, in the USA with corporations running everything, bartering with the supermarket may be difficult, so people will be going to farmer markets and creating co-ops.  Supermarkets will eventually fail or be replaced by a resource allocation system that is not based on money.

This is not about going back to the old barter system and living in the dark ages.  It is about moving forward into the new age of giving, sharing and interdependence.  It is about the world coming together as ONE, because we are One and the Earth is our sustenance!  We are biting the hand that feeds us and this must stop – NOW.

I believe the gifting system proposed by the movie “Living Without Money” is a bridge to the more sustainable and prosperous system of resource allocation.  I know that you realize a change is needed, so please do not think that propping the failing monetary system back up once again is an answer, it is only delaying the inevitable.  By consciously choosing a LBE the future will flow right into our laps.

I Thought So

All change begins with a thought which is evaluated with the six tools of the mind and then either implemented or discarded.  Often times the idea is “run through the mill” hundreds or even thousands of times before it is tweaked enough to become reality.

The thought I am presenting today and for the past several months is a Love Based Economy/Society (LBE).   If you have not read the previous blogs I hope you will take some time to look over them.  The idea is not new or even unique and has been around all your life.  John Lennon wrote and sung about it as have countless others over the centuries.  The wonderful fact is the time has come to embrace this thought with all your heart, because you are not alone.

The Universe is in alignment for the transformation of this world into a LBE.  I write now about this because I have seen it manifesting all around me and I am excited for the future of mankind.  We have made it past the hardest of the changes and as more individuals embrace the new earth the faster and smoother the transformation will go.

The way to embrace the future is to wake up and take action in living a sustainable life.  Live your life on purpose!   Consider others in all your decisions and not just family.  Think about the animals and plants that are affected by your choices.  Consider the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the soil we grow our food in.  Be compassionate!

The world I see is much like the Venus Project and I suggest you go to their site and explore some.  The videos they offer are very informative and present some great ideas for creating the world of our dreams.  The process is easy, take one step at a time and do not be in a hurry.

The Venus Project is already on phase three of its development and has been in motion since the 70’s.  This next phase is a big leap into the future of mankind.  It involves building a city to the specifications of this new ideal.  Much of the technology needed already exists today (Please see the videos).

For more in depth information on how the Venus Project is being implemented please read the FAQ here.  One of the key factors in this process is the world coming together and this is happening as you read this!  It is possible and in fact a requirement for the future of mankind to have a world without borders, nationalism, or religion.  We can no longer afford to fight over imaginary lines and ego claimed resources.  The fact is plain, the earth is one and we are a part of earth not the other way around!  Can you imagine your brain cells claiming ownership over your body?  Charging the blood cells for entering its space?  How about your skin charging the other organs for protection?  Can you see the absurdity of our present world economic system?  Consider the words of this song.

The world is one big organism called Gaia.  You can hold on to the old ways and perish with them (flushed off like a dead skin cell) or you can open your heart and take a step back to see the bigger picture (embrace your role in this process).  All is well.  Everything that happens is meant to in the Divine Schema.  The actions you take today add to the greater good!  Please do not ever think you are not important!  Your part is key to the final outcome.   Only you know what that part is, listen carefully – Spirit speaks.

Applications of a Love Based Economy

The rubber hits the road when you apply the principles of a Love Based Economy (LBE).  The principles have been presented over the past many months and are woven thru the blogs from the very beginning.  For specifics please read the Ebooks available HERE.  They are not written specifically for a LBE, however they are the foundation from which the LBE came to be. 

It has been expressed that a LBE and the resource based economy I have been supporting in my blogs over the past few months is idealistic and not possible in today’s society.  I agree that we have a ways to go, however I will also say that we have been on this path for many decades, if not centuries.  The time has come to make the jump.

Several key elements are required on the personal level to make this shift.  One is to believe it is possible and visualize, talk, and write about your ideas for a Love Based Economy/Society.  (Consider what Walt Disney created with this technique!)  Two is to take personal responsibility for it by living it.  This is not as hard as it may seem.  Start small and work up. 

Habits take 30 days to develop so be consistent in your efforts.  Anything you do consistently over and over becomes automatic, however at first results will not be observable and in fact the opposite may appear.  Do not get discouraged!  If it is worth doing then it is worth staying with it.  Allow yourself a few failures before you change tactics and stay with the dream, always and all ways.  

The more you live your dream the closer it will be to reality.  Understand also that the dream goes through many changes or transitions each leading closer to the goal.  This is evolution in action!  Take time to reflect on what is working in your life and focus on these things.  A fix it approach only creates more issues to fix, so I don’t recommend this approach.  What you focus on grows, so stay focused on your dreams and desires!

Make a list of things you can do today to be more loving in your daily life.  Question your motives for doing everything you do.  In fact, question all of reality.  Is death and destruction really as prevalent as the media would have you believe?  Look around your person and ask yourself how much violence you have in your personal life.  What have you seen with your own eyes?  A quote from Ken Keyes sums this up, “A loving person lives in a loving world. A hostile person lives in a hostile world. Everyone you meet is your mirror”. 

For more info on a resource based economy please visit, Zeitgeist Movement, and on a love based society the writings are diverse and abundant so please explore this dream and make it reality.  Yes Magazine is another good source for ideas pertaining to this subject.  For more on Love and God I highly recommend the writings of Neale Donald Walsch, start with Conversations with God

I will be busy living the dream of a Love Based Economy so my blogs will be fewer and further between, but please stay in touch and keep reading!  Whenever you encounter a crossroads (or any decision) in your life, ask yourself one question.  “What would Love do now”?

Energy A-Bun-Dance

Continuing our series on a Love Based Economy/Society (LBE) we consider energy sources and use.  Energy is free and abundant in a LBE because each individual realizes that everything is energy.  Money is no longer necessary because it is simply a middle man or motivator if you will.  In a LBE, Love is the motivator there is no need for tokens.

In a LBE no one ever uses more energy than they need at any one time.  The days of having every light and appliance running in the house at the same time is over because each person is operating from Love and an honest care for their fellow beings.  Responsibility is natural as is being aware of the impact your actions have. 

Energy is now created at the point of need so the need for power lines strung all over the place is gone, meaning the beauty of earth has returned.  Renewable energy is the only form energy takes now.  Zero point generators and other systems are in place so that each device being used comes with its own power source built right in.  No wires, just a simple device providing whatever service it is designed for.   Please see this website for more info, http://www.greenearth4energy.com/zero_point_energy.html.

Energy like everything else in a LBE is available to everyone equally, and more importantly free will is respected.  The difference is that now, Love energy is predominant in society, so love is expressed by everyone in all situations.  Even if something unloving manifests it is seen as temporary and allowed to pass without drama.  The less energy given to it, the less likely it is to persist. 

Society transformed to a Love based system once the previous fear based society was allowed to pass.  The people finally woke up and saw just how unnatural a fear based system is and how much energy is required to maintain it.  Love is a natural state and requires little energy to manifest, however it does require a certain awareness, acceptance, openness and trust to operate from.  It is like slipping into a warm stream and swimming in the gentle waters of Great Spirits flowing Love.  Once in the flow it is not necessary to leave and in fact you will be inviting everyone you know to join you.  May the flow be with you.

Reflect And Contemplate This

This week is going to be a week of reflection and contemplation.  There will be no blogs and all I ask of you is to think about what a Love Based Economy/Society (LBE) looks and feels like.  How can we change our present to align with a LBE?  Do we even need to? 

Remember that we are each responsible for our version of “reality”.  I know it is hard to imagine that your partner is experiencing the world differently than you are or anyone for that matter, however we each experience the same world in different ways, thus the personal differences from one person to the next.  I believe this is why we like to share our world/knowledge/experiences with others.  The more points of view you have the closer you are to the source experience of seeing, knowing and experiencing it all. 

Could you imagine watching one movie your entire life and that movie then becoming your reality?  You know there are other movies, but you are not interested in them.  All that concerns you is your movie.  I think this is one way to live, however I also see this as a very limited form of existence as well. 

Let us contemplate Oneness, Interdependence, and LBE this week.  Please post comments or email me directly.  Contact info is on the website, Unity in Gender Diversity.  I also posted a link to a resource based economy so you can share in this concept.  May your week be illuminated!

Transportation in a LBE

Transportation in a Love Based Economy/Society (LBE) is our next topic of discussion.  Getting around in a LBE uses the highest level of technological advancement available.  There is no cost involved, and availability is abundant.

Since the cities are constructed around a central hub automated vehicles run constantly in a cycle around the city.  Supplies are brought in by supply train for distribution to the final location.  Cars and trucks are not allowed in the city, but are still used out in the country, between cities, and by enthusiasts.  

Fossil fuels are no longer in use, so older vehicles are retrofitted with fuel cells or zero-point generators.  Walking is a favorite activity so each loving person does so whenever the distance is less than one mile.  Many people will walk five miles a day simply because they can.  If for some reason they cannot walk, technology takes over so going where you want, by peddle, wheel, or air is never a concern.    

The concept of ownership is obsolete in a LBE.  As is the case in every aspect of a LBE, services are free and abundant, while also being respected, and never abused.  When you need a vehicle you simply get in and go.  There are no locks or keys to worry with.  When done you make sure the vehicle is left in a ready condition for the next user.  Since there are plenty of vehicles no person goes without, and even if there is a high demand each person makes sure others are served first. 

Common areas of high demand like stadiums and theatres have mass transit serving them whenever events are scheduled.  The central computer handles all systems so a balanced flow of traffic is moving at all times.  In LBE people demand clean, efficient, and well maintained services in a loving and caring way, always taking into consideration other people’s needs. 

The LBE is all about freedom, so transportation is a liberation, not a limitation.  Moving about where you wish is simply a matter of making it so, expressing your loving and caring essence all the while.

Water in a LBE

Next we look at water and its vital role in a Love Based Economy/Society (LBE).  As an essential to life on earth, water in a LBE is protected, honored and shared equally.  Since it is not possible to own water, no matter what form it comes in, all people share its use equally and responsibly. 

The most advanced technology is used to clean the water depending on where the community is.  Desalination plants are used if an ocean is nearby.  If in a low water area such as a desert communities work together to provide water for all citizens.  Water is something that brings people together either in charity or in recreation, sometimes both!

Water based recreation continues to be a major past time the world over, while each person remembers to respect native species and not pollute the waterways.  Each citizen enjoys the water in a loving way.

Water in a LBE flows freely and is used often for its aesthetic, medicinal and energetic properties.  Schools teach the metaphysical properties of water along with the chemical and physical properties so each student has a rounded education which only adds to the child’s appreciation of Mother Earth. 

Fountains, water art, and natural waterfalls abound because it is known that water is healing, calming and nurturing.  Its feminine energy is both soft and hard, weak and strong.  It takes three different forms, vapor, liquid and solid.  It is the universal solvent and medium for myriad solutions.  So what’s not to honor about this amazing, life giving, life sustaining, substance?  Loving it comes easy.

Eating in a LBE

As part of our continuing series on Love Based Economy/Society (LBE) we explore an aspect of life we all can relate to.  Eating in a LBE is more community based than ever before.  Food is grown locally and shared freely.  No one goes hungry in a LBE because each person lives knowing we are all family.  We now understand that poverty is a consciousness and is perpetuated by both the have’s and the have not’s.  Those who hoard wealth are just as responsible for starving children as the children themselves.  Not to say that each individual is not responsible for their own abundance.  Poverty is based in fear, so when you live with Love there is no fear of having enough, what you have is shared freely and you know there will always and all ways be more.

Each community works together to provide as much fresh farmed food as possible using the most modern equipment and automation.  Beside the large agrarian areas, food is grown in aquaponic greenhouse factories in the city and in individual homes.  Each home that has land will grow basic food items to reduce the need in the overall system. 

Hunting is no longer practiced in a LBE although it is not outlawed.  Hunting preserves are allowed where the Native practice of honoring the animal is exercised and the entire process is a Spiritual joining of man and beast.  All parts of the animal are used and meat eaten. 

Meat for the mass population is farmed with loving intention, the animals are treated humanely and sustainably.  Since meat is not longer the main course the demand for meat is far less which makes sustainable farming more practical.  Farmed animals know their purpose and live to serve just as their ancestors did for the native peoples. 

Eating is still a ceremony that is celebrated in diverse ways and gratitude for those who brought the food to the table, from the plant or animal itself to the person consuming the food, all are honored.  We all know that the whole process is energy changing forms and is as natural as a seed germinating. 

In a LBE food is one tool for living a life based in Love.  Because each action we take is a statement of our Love.  This means respecting our food, being grateful and using sustainable methods in the entire process.  Carrots and Broccoli are as alive as a chicken or cow, so it is this life vitality that is consumed.  The method of doing such is what makes a Love Based Economy/Society different than today’s.  As you bless your food so does your food bless you.
