Rocks are a part of life, where would we be without rocks? Would we have solid ground to stand on? Are rocks not an important part of our ecosystem that supports us to exist here? Would it be stupid to not consider rocks as well as all life? Aren’t our physical forms dependent on a specific balance and constitution of nature, of which rocks are included?

Yet so many do not consider rocks a part of life, do not consider rocks as equally as valuable as anything else that is here that is supporting us to exist here. Humans are usually see as the most important life form on the entire planet – yet not considering everything that it takes to make it possible to even be a human being existing here. Is a life form which takes for granted the very things that it requires to exist, really that superior of a being?

Currently we’re taking just about every facet of this existence for granted, as one can plainly see from the way we’re treating this world and everything within it, including ourselves. We allow ourselves and everything in this world to be enslaved to a money system that seeks only to make profit and has no consideration for life, because we’re not considering life, and considering ourselves as life.

We’ve accepted ourselves as less than life. Because our lives seem so limited and insignificant, we’ve come to believe that’s all we are. And it’s within that belief that we’ve diminished ourselves.

The solution is here, and has always been here. It’s to stop taking ourselves for granted, stop giving in to justifications and excuses that this is all we are and ever can be. We’ve never even tried to really expand ourselves – we’ve given up before we’ve even started. We’ve become masters at the art of self sabotage.

We sabotage ourselves to the ultimate extent where we’re busy making this world uninhabitable by taking for granted the very things which we require to survive and thrive here. We’re contaminating our food and water and the total environment as a whole and utilizing the earth’s resources at a rate which cannot be sustained.

We’re causing our own destruction, but if you have a look, each and every human is busy trying to protect and ensure their own survival. As if the human can survive on its own. As an individual or as a whole – the human is totally dependent on what is here to survive. You can’t live without food, water, air, shelter – the basic things that nature provides – and if we abuse the process of nature to such an extent that it can no longer effectively operate to provide us with what is required to live, then we’ll die. So how ironic is that? That each and every human is geared toward their survival – yet we’re busy destroying that which we need to survive?

If we actually care that much about surviving, then we need to get busy considering what actually is keeping us alive here right now. Which is this planet and nature. Without these functioning properly and being utilized effectively, the human cannot exist. Thus the human is no better than the animals, nature, even rocks. Have a look around and see if there is any concrete nearby, there is probably some in your house somewhere, or a building nearby. What’s concrete made of? Crushed rocks. It’s used in many homes as an effective building material for humans to live in. The home I live in now is constructed mostly from concrete. And the very ground we walk on has rock as in its structure. It’s used within roads to transport goods and materials that we utilize. Some animals even require to eat small rocks to aid with their digestion, like chickens, and those animals play an important part in our food chain.

We all learn about in school the basic human needs of food, shelter, water, yet not how to care for them, what the current state of them is, how we’re currently utilizing them, whether we’re using the resources the earth provides in a way that is sustainable, and that reflects an understanding of the importance that nature plays in our very ability to exist here. We don’t learn to care for that which cares for us. And the result is that we don’t even realize or understand the part nature plays in our existence, or that it is being used in a way that our children may not have a world to live in, or even ourselves.

We need to get out of the survival complex within the current economic system, and consider what is actually necessary to survive, and realize that the way we’re currently existing is not leading to a life where all get what they need and where the environment is treated as equal to ourselves, since without it we wouldn’t and can’t exist. It’s leading to the very destruction of nature, and us with it. And it will not be pleasant or quick. There is an opportunity to stop and correct ourselves before it’s too late. And the first step is a new economic system that doesn’t force us into a survival game that keep s us too busy to consider anything other than our own momentary survival.

Within this point of starting a business, and walking through the process, some interesting points have been coming up- which is exactly the reason I decided to do this business- to learn and to see through direct experience, just what points there is to consider within the current process of making/running a business, within the current Capitalistic system, and also to get perspective and see what points there are to consider within how a business can/will function within an Equal Money System, and also how to transition to an EMS.

One thing I had started to realize within looking at the point of ‘job creation’ and how that is extensively pushed by politicians, and usually the emphasis is on supporting people to create small businesses- as these are so-called ‘the back-bone of our economy’ and many other such phrases that seek to emphasize the importance of small businesses and making more of them. I wasn’t clear why this was so, because don’t big businesses hire more people? So why not support big businesses?

Well, what I realized is that supporting small businesses = supporting big businesses. Because who gives big businesses their business? Sure individual customers give some business, but have a look at how much business they get from small businesses. I mean, consider Home Depot for example, and the difference between their customers who is just an individual looking for a new nut for his sink drain or something, compared to a guy who has his own little deck-building business who is buying supplies on a regular basis, lumber, screws, etc.

Therefore, small business IS big business. There’s a theme going around to support small businesses rather than big business, and, hahaha, that’s actually not possible, is it, because where does the small business get their supplies? Yeah, big business. So if you are a consumer who likes to think you don’t support big business, because you only shop at ‘small businesses’, guess again, you can’t not support big business. Therefore, if you want to ‘stop’ big business- you can’t do it by just apparently ‘not buying there’. You have to realize that big business isn’t bad because it’s big- but rather because in our current system it’s designed so that corporations are valued more than life, and thus our corporations are not life-supporting corporations, they are profit-making, life-disregarding machines bent only on their own profit and self interest, no matter the cost to life.

Thus a new system is required, wherein the value of money is not separated from the value of life, wherein money has no value separate from life- so that our business, big or small, are actually supportive of life, and so that the businesses which actually support life can also be supported, unlike in this Capitalist system where the businesses which we depend on for the things we need, must all compete with one another, and only those that have gone the farthest to abuse and cut-corners are the ones left standing. Ridiculous- and with the result that many of us suffer.

Obviously, it’s Time for an Equal Money System.

It is so insane, this system that we have currently, the sheer ways in which it abuse. The sheer extent to which we are allowing suffering and abuse in this world.

It is so obvious that we need to simply forgive each other, let shit go, let our egos go, so that we can be here, so that we can actually enjoy being here, and can create a world that is worth living in, that is worthy of children to be born into.

It’s going to take a lot of work and consideration to clean up this colossal mess so the sooner we get started, the better. The problems are obviously not going to just go away, look around, they’re still here. Nothing we have done thus far has actually solved anything. It’s time we stop fucking around with fantasies and empty words of ‘hope’ and ‘change’ and ‘light’ and ‘love’, none of that bullshit has done anything to solve any of the problems we face, and in fact that kind of bullshit is part of the problems.

It’s time to get Real and get down to business. It’s time to Stand Up and take Responsibility for what’s Here. What did we do with this Earth that is Here, providing the substance for us to be supported to live here as the physical- did we realize what a gift this is and live in gratitude and appreciation of this within our very actions? No- we abused the living shit out of it. We’ve spited ourself to the utmost, by spiting the very thing which allows us to exist here, and unfortunately, we continue to do so.

This is so unacceptable, I will do whatever it takes and whatever I can to Stand up and face these points of abuse to stop them, as this is not what life should be, at all. I dedicate my life to this process, of bringing about equality- Equality where everyone has Equal Quality of Life- where No One has Less ‘quality’ than another- that is simply unacceptable- have a look- would you want to have Less Quality than another? NO, you would not. So obviously, no one would. And any excuse that says for some reason some should have less than you, is ego, and is fucked up, and you do not deserve to be a human being living on this planet. If you cannot get along with others, if you cannot ‘love thy neighbor’ as yourself- then get out. Come back when you realize what it means to live in and share a world with other beings and that those beings are equal to you in the right to have a life, in the right to have a chance in life to actually live and express themself as who they really are, and then you too will have that right.

It is quite fascinating to apply myself in this point of becoming involved in politics, actually taking the time to really thoroughly walk myself through the history of the governments we have created which we have now. And really, the point of studying in general, about things that is actually relevant to this world, like the economic system and education system- I am finding it is actually quite cool to study these things because doing so brings me to a point of understanding how, these systems that exist currently which we are creating, actually function- how it is we create them, how it is they exist, by getting down into the ‘nitty-gritty’ details, and really seeing all aspects of what we are doing, or at least much more aspects than before, and as I come to understand how it works more and more, I also gain the ability to become a creative/directive force within it. Whereas, when I did not know how it worked, it was like a mystery to me and thus I had no way to become involved in it, in the world systems, I had no clue as to even how to start and thus I assumed I simply ‘was not able’ to participate at all, and in fact, I wasn’t able, if only because I lacked the understanding of how the systems work, and thus how to be able to move within and as them.
It is exactly like if you want to play chess, you must understand what the different pieces are, and how they are able to move and how they are restricted, etc, and thus you can see how our systems are much like a game, where there is established rules that you must learn to play, if you want to ‘play the game’. Ha, I remember various experiences in my life where I was playing a game that I’d never played before with someone who was quite experienced, and they would use my lack of knowledge of the rules and strategies of the game to their advantage in order to win and would make no effort to even explain the basic rules of the game, and it was like ‘what is the fucking point?’ to even play this game, if you are not going to even have me stand on equal ground to compete as equals. Nevermind that the very point that we for entertainment and pleasure will actually engage in games where the point is to win at another’s expense- this just shows the extent to which we’ve been brainwashed to believe that ‘accomplishment’ or ‘reward’ must and only comes at the expense of another. Which is quite fucked up when you realize that it does not at all require some to lose in order to gain, in fact it’s exactly the opposite, when it’s set up so that in order to gain, you must rob others, it is like crippling a part of yourself, a part of your own body, as a part of the whole body that is all humans and this existence, and therefore you actually hurt yourself, YOU actually LOSE.
In realizing this, it is Obvious Common Sense, to not have our systems set up for only a few to gain at the cost of others. I mean, how fucked-up is it- that we don’t even realize this point, that it does not require some to ‘lose’ in order to gain, and that in fact, we are all losing by this set up. This is what the Equal Money System is about- having a system in which Life can actually be enjoyable no matter where you are in this world, you will be supported as the Life that you are- not exploited with no other choice if you want to actually survive in this world. It’s a system which will reflect the realization that what is actually best for each individual is that which is beneficial for every individual, thus, that which is best for self, or in self’s interest, is that which is best for All and Everyone. One and the same. One and equal. It’s such a simple point, and it’s time now to stand up and live this realization into actual fact, and stop the needless abuse and suffering going on in this world.
