The (economic) crisis is a crisis in consciousness, the crisis that cannot anymore accept the old norms, the old patterns, the ancient traditions and considering what the world is now, with all the misery, conflict, destructive brutality, aggression and so on. Man is still as he was, is still brutal, violent, aggressive, acquisitive, competitive and he has built a society along these lines. Jiddu Krishnamurti

The end of the world is at hand some say. But, only the world as we know it now. For a human civilization that has been at war with itself, separated, saturated in fear, disease and riddled with suffering, isn’t it about time for it to? Instead of fearing the end, perhaps we can embrace and love it for what it really is: A new beginning. And now, more than ever, we need one.

How do you feel about living in a world where a mere two percent (2 ) of the population owns over a whopping fifty percent (50 ) of the wealth? Do you think we are still benefiting from this widespread monetary concept? Or do you wonder, like I do, is it thwarting our ability to discover our own true value?

In this time when the world economy is being dismantled and redesigned, the questions of what we are really capable of without money is coming up time and time again, both in our personal lives, and on the public stage. What are we really worth? Who are we without money? Can we survive without it?

For the longest time, we’ve had a green belt wrapped tightly around our consciousness. Money means survival, and survival meant success. At any cost, even at the destruction of the planet and people, maximizing profit always has to come first. So, when do we get move on from simply surviving so we can start to thrive?

In this collapsing economic system, our values stood as such: as long as profits were maximized, it didn’t matter whose lives were torn apart by poverty, hunger, unemployment, and war. The pollution being created by it or the planet that was being raped and pillaged of its natural life giving beauty wasn’t even considered as long as profit was cultivated.

And you can forget about making a product that lasts forever or that is good for us. How would it make money? If a car was constructed that could avoid accidents, that ran on infinite, natural, free energy, that never needed to be repaired and there was only as many made as people who needed to be transported, despite how much more value would be added to our lives, profit loss would be tantamount.

Thankfully, this archaic paradigm is entirely unsustainable and coming to an end.

In world where value is measured and quantified in dollar signs, where does the value of life fit in? How can there be compassion, cooperation and caring in a system that is built on scarcity and debt? Every dollar in your bank account has only been “loaned” to you in exchange for your energy (work), and so it is actually owed to somebody, somewhere at some point. If we are all made equal, then why did the ruling elite treat people and the planet like they were extinguishable and expendable? Survival means sacrifice, because money = scarcity.

In our current system, we have created a scarce money supply so that somebody always has to go without in order for there to be a demand and thus in debt. In this system abundance is not a valuable thing overall. Only for a few. This creates a vibration of fear in all of us who are embedded in this system.

How will I make enough to make ends meet? When will I have enough money to enjoy my life? What will I do if I am poor? Seeing poor people makes me feel so bad. Why can’t I do something I love and still make money? I have all the money in the world, but I still feel worthless. We all can’t win when a world of competition demands only one winner. So, who is really winning at this money game anyway? And how do we stop playing with debt, scarcity and fear should we deem this system no longer meets our needs?

Begin to invest in your true value, your inner power. It holds the key to the endless prosperity of the creative loving force that lives within us all. Be fearless, investigate the non physical world within and unlock your potential to know your unending prosperity.

Start to appreciate all the abundance of family, friends, beauty, health, creativity, freedom, opportunity, connection and joy in your life right now. These are more valuable than that piece of paper in your wallet, or that number on the screen at the ATM machine. And they certainly bring more joy.

“When we use the term prosperity, a lot of people immediately think of money,” says Louise L. Hay. “However, there are many other concepts that come under the auspices of prosperity, such as: time, love, success, comfort, beauty, knowledge, relationships, health, and, of course, money.”

The big question that comes to our mind is, “what will be achieved without the impetus of investment?” Well that is the problem we face. That is the question of the ego, a question of survival and fear. It is not a question of the heart, which is a place that connects us to the power that makes everything possible. What is more valuable to the heart, people and the planet, or profit?

Without the monetary system we would be free to invest in the most important thing about being alive, ourselves. The we could profit from connecting, exploring every corner of the cosmos and every cell and atom in our beautiful bodies, we could heal all pain and disease, explore the world freely without borders, share in the abundant resources and energy of the planet, educate our children in the ways of understanding who they are and their real worth, value and power. We will create a world where it is safe to love each other and place to be free to enjoy every experience of life that only costs a simple “thank you”.

You can’t put a value on creation. So why do we put a value on our lives through money? If money is here to serve us, and we create it, then why not use that money to benefit ourselves, by benefiting all. As Baird T. Spalding states, “earth is a series of interconnected beings, and therefore the best way to promote our own interests is to promote the common interest and the only way to preserve our own good is to preserve the good of the whole.” Once we put the planet and people first, then we will truly have made a worthy profit.
