I am going to make a couple of assertions here.
1. We as a species/race lived harmoniously with nature long ago and provided for ourselves and our families as well as shared with our neighbors with
no need nor knowledge of paper with numbers printed on it.
2. At some point we could no longer provide for our families, ourselves, nor could we share with our neighbors without first having paper with numbers
printed on it.
I wonder how life was when we all shared and gave freely to one another. I wonder why it is written in the holy tablets of truth that it cannot be
done again.What would happen if we tried?
I have a mind excersize that goes something like this.
We were all living a peaceful existance giving and sharing, providing and loving, having all that we needed and no more than we needed to flourish
and prosper. The law of one was in full effect. We all looked out for eachother and cared for eachother. When there was a need, it was met. PERIOD! If
your neighbor needed a home built for himself and his family then we all chipped in and helped out. When we needed help harvesting our crops everyone
helped out and got the job done, no questions asked.
Somewhere along the line something changed!!!!!!
Did an offer get made to one of us? Perhaps something that no one else had. Something that appealed to our ego?
Perhaps somethng that Created our EGO? What if there was an offer made to give us a shiney trinket that had special powers in exchange for a deed of
Wouldn't that just make us feel.....'Special'? "Different"?
and what if we were offered more of these trinkets with special powers/properties for more deeds? and then what if we took these trinkets and showed
them to our neighbors and they were all very impressed? They wanted to know how they could get some? Can I have one?? "NO" you say. "I had to labor to
recieve these. These were a product of my sweat and hard work. If you want one then you'll have to do something for me first, then I'll give you
And So It Begins!!
More and more of these trinkets were distributed untill eventually there were so many that they were traded amoungst you for certain deeds. untill we
started trading them for actual posessions.
Then It Happens
We start replacing these trinkets with coins made from precious metals such as Gold and Silver as a representation of how many trinkets you're
But these heavy coins are sooo cumbersome and hard to carry around so we created paper with numbers printed on it
to represent how many Gold and Silver coins we have accumulated.
Well thats where we are now but we are at the tail end of this stage which brings me to the next level.
Something For Nothing!!
At this level we grow tired of this paper with numbers printed on it because it is too cumbersome and dirty. What we will do is show you numbers on
a screen which will represent how much of the green paper you are entitled to.
This is much more efficient isn't it?
You can't hold these numbers nor enjoy their splendor. You can't wear them nor can you share them with others so that they may enjoy their splendor.
What you CAN do with them is use them to aquire things and services like someone to build a house for you or perhaps someone to harvest your field for
the same things that used to be......FREE!!!!
We will now do anything for paper with numbers printed on it because we literally can't survive without it.
Try going a week without paper with numbers printed on it or a rectagular piece of plastic and see how far you get. ONE WEEK!!!!!!
There was a time people. THE WAS A TIME!!!!
Is there a crime or an evil that I can't contribute to money?? I say no. You see there is no such thing as evil nor rightiousness. Not right Nor
Wrong, not good nor bad.
There is only service to self and service to others.
So is money the root of all Evil???
Money is the root of service to self.
