Its been said that Money makes the world go round and money is the root of all evil. But what I dont think people are realizing that its the "root" of money that is the real root of all evil. Our modern society is soley based on money. The quality that you eat, play, raise your children and essentially the way you live life is all based in money.

The problem is the basis we receive that money. See you can acquire money by any means possible. You dont have to gain your welth through altuistic honest means. You can get it by lieing, cheating and stealing. Can we agree that most of the real problems of the world have their basis in won of these 3?

If the world had a way of getting rid of the ability to gain wealth from any of those negitive routes, I believe the world wud be a alot better place.

I was speaking with a co-worker about current events and he brought up that he is a "on-paper" socialist. This intrigued me, so I asked him to explain. He said he loves the idea of socialism in the sence that people work together equaly. The problem he is hung up on is how do you maintain a currency system in a socialistic society that wont cant be corrupted. I then started talking to him about a show I saw a few years ago stating that we have the technology to do so much more than were doing now, but its just a matterof not having enough money. When they said that I thought" Why the hell is somthing stupid as having enough paper with numbers on it holding us back from our real potential?" My anwser to that question came in the form of a message while in meditation. I was told that when I die I will have the option of moving on to the next level, or to come back and help people in post SHTF build anew.( I have chossen to come back) The reason is for some reason it was made very clear to me that my karma would shoot off the chart if I chose to come back to help.

I wondered afterward, why is kama so important in the next level up (heaven if you will) And then it came to me, karma is their currency!!

Now for the SOLUTION (please read the entire thread before you post, thanks)

A way for our world to truly have peace is not to get rid of currency its to change the way its acquired.
The answer is to use karma as currency
Iknow, I know. How the heck do we do that, right?
Well with the obvious way that technolgy and medicine are going, we will someday be merged with some type of computing system, along with many other biomechanical systems.
Off the top of my head this is one way that it could be incorperated.

How to measure good karma vs bad karma would be a huge hurrdle to get over but thats why there are people out there that have the knowledge to turn an idea into reality.
In a world that bases your wealth off of Karma you would do good kama actions to get positive (K)points.Therefore having a positive bank account of sorts.
And if you did things to get into the negitive karma range, then that is when you would be in debt and would be forced to get their karma back into the positive.

No longer would the punk down the street rob his nieghbor to get the money he wanted to buy that cool new car.
He would simply go down to the old folks home and entertain the elderly with his badass guitar skills.

No longer would people starve due to the people that have the ability to help do nothing, because it wasnt profitable for them. The more help/positive karma you provide the greater your wealth.


No longer would we envy such materialistic ways of life because they would lose their mystic of only the best can have this. With karma as a currency anyone would have the ability to become wealthy.

No longer would we have the "rat race" that we expience now. yes there will still be jobs, but the local garbage man can do just as well as someone else provideing a service to others to the same degree of help.

The poor could become instantly rich by simply helping others and the fat cats that wouldnt lift a finger to help their own mothers would be in the dumps without changing the way they act.

Once this system was set up, it would be the obvious way to do things. Eventually down the road as every one will have built up so much (K) currency the society will most likey understand that they never really even needed to have a currency anyway.

Lets make this happen. We have so many scientist, analyist, physicists, and other great minds that could be working on how to make this a reality insted of developing a new way to control and kill people.

And before you say TPTB will never let that happen, thats the exact wrong attitude to have. We need to have a positive additude on how to really make world peace.

So, what are your ideas on how we could make karma into currency?

Hey I really like your thread. Thx. Not nit picking but the Phrase "Money is The Root of All Evil" is not completely accurate. The actual phrase is "For the "LOVE" of money is the Root Of All Evil" It's the Love of money that creats the problem. Iguess anything that becomes a first love or substitute for God is Aa false God.

As far as Karma being the basis for receiving and paying, substituting money. I guess it would take us being mind readers!! I don't see any other way.. Maybe there is.. Thx again..Keep the faith!!

It's a good idea.
But I don't think your going to convince people to work 9 to 5 for K points.
No but seriously, it's a great Idea, though It would take something super advanced to be able to tell if we are doing a good deed or bad deed though.

The end to the worlds problems is to end greed. Good luck with that, the end to the worlds problems is to overcome human nature..... Too bad we all have it.

People who steal, kill, lie, and cheat for money don't love money. They commit evil acts for money (to survive).
Which means it isn't the love of money, its the money.

...plus your system fails to take into account the fact that most people don't believe in karma...

and I can guarantee that pretty much everyone on earth would dislike the idea of working for something as ethereal as karma. Plus, it wouldn't stop people from stealing - which would seem easier than working up K-points.

Thats why I told the story of how I got the idea. I was meditating and the answer of to why is karma so important is because that is possibly a means of currency on "the other side". You can gain greater karma in the physical world. than in the etheral. So in that relm they pretty much are mind/concious readers, ya know.

Granted people would probebly still steal in the begining. But I believe through a few generations, it will be taught that by simply doing good you can be wealthy. I think new generations would raise their children this way until eventualy it became just the way to do things. When paradigms shift it always takes a bit for everything to catch up.

The system wouldnt have to be directly karma, it would be what you see as good and bad karma. maybe someway of measuring brainwaves or impulses to see which areas fire when a good deed is performed vs when a bad deed is preformed.

dunno,
I think this a very new way of solving the actual problems at their root. Im sure if the idea gets to the right people, they may be able to make it a reality. Im always hopeful

An interesting proposition, however you must take into account those with different paradigms of "good" and "bad". If this is directly connected to the feeling of doing "good" things, that would fail to account for the multitudes of highly placed corporate folks out there who really don't feel they are doing any wrong in their rampant and ruthless climbs towards the top.

I agree totally.
I know there are some definete wrinkles to iron out but at least now we have an idea. Thats where it all has to begin. Thank you for your input.

I do see that the core purpose of money is to fulfil this aim, you spend a few hours painting a house and you get some money. The problem has been with the legal and political system in finding and resolving the lying, cheating and stealing. I have noticed a down hill slide with the precedent set by 9/11, the law is no longer about right and wrong but power and control. The best solution to get things back on track is to reinvestigate and resolve 9/11. This will install a huge cultural shift that will spread throughout society to straighten things back up again.

LOVE of money is the root of MUCH (all kinds of) evil. Not ALL evil and not money by itself.

I agree
but money is our modern society is the way we can make what we see as a better life for ourselves. If we could change the way wealth is gained then people would no longer be wealthy for screwing other people out of their wealth. With karma as currency it just wouldn't be profitable. you can still have commerce, you could still have trading/barder, it just be that by doing good to others, you can be come "wealthy".

You would still have jobs at resturaunts, because you are providing a service, therefore good (K) points. It would motivate people to find better ways to help others not screw them for a quick buck.

It's a grand idea! If somehow it could be adapted it to our reality. If somehow this idea could be infused with the concept that we are all one. When one is hurt or brutalized, we are all hurt and brutalized. When good is done for one, the whole is uplifted. As many have said, it will take a massive consciousness overhall!

I beleive that person that came up with a way to make this a reality will be awarded the ultimate Nobel Peace prize. But honestly this is what our parents instil in us as the way things should be done.

Remember growing up and your parents always saying to 'be good' 'be nice' 'help grandma' 'be honest' 'love your brothers and sisters'. The problem is what society has made into what we call the REAL WORLD. As it stands now, the real world is brutal, ruthless corrupt hateful greedy and jealous. With karma as currency I believe we could make the society that our parents raised us to beleive in.

Neat idea... a bit advanced for the entire populace - just yet - but it will come!


1) The first thing we have to do is to get the citizens involved in creating their own destinies

2) We do this by getting people involved in legislating the laws of society

3) We do that by letting WE THE PEOPLE vote EN MASSE for the bills that our legislators propose

Here's what I'm talking about:
Let The People Vote? Yes...On Every Bill!!

Im not sure if you read the entire post, but arguing of the symantics of how one phase was stated is not the issue. I just used it as an example. we can still have currency. we just have to use a better system for aquireing it.

My brother. I call you brother because I am not in disagreement with you. There may have been earlier uses of the phrase "The love of money is the root of all evil" But the first time I heard of the phrase was in the Bible. In the Bible it says "For the LOVE of MONEY is the root of all evil. Eitherway, stay strong and keep your faith, fight the good fight!!

Thx for the thread and your reply ....
