It’s Sunday morning and I’m sitting here enjoying the sites of fresh fallen snow and the aroma of the vegetable broth brewing on the stove (my partner and I started it first thing when we woke up this morning) and also the smell of a roaring fire just outside my window that my partner just got going. All of it, for me, makes for the perfect day.
So, not to sound all ‘scent’imental’, lol, no pun intended, but I’m realizing more and more how life begins when we begin to develop an awareness of our personal responsibility to become accountable for how our world exists. To educate oneself to understand what it takes these days to survive in this world so to be able to enjoy the simplest of things. For example, what does one have to do/be/become in order to have a warm home in which to enjoy the beauty of a fresh fallen snow and cooking one’s favorite meal…
Ok so my point is, as I sat enjoying the snow and the aroma’s all around me, a memory was triggered and I saw how my mind took me back to something my mom used to say, she’d say: I’m a day late and a dollar short. I remember how her words captured me within a way where I was unable to rectify her meaning. I didn’t really understand her choice of words but the tone within which she spoke them gave me clarity on how she felt. I knew she had allowed herself a missed opportunity and was caught inexcusably unprepared for it. It is only now that I understand the underlying implications and the utmost importance the experience held on as.
The problem is in the value we give to time and money. How we seem to unknowingly become the trip our mind chooses for us to take and as the human, we willingly give value to our accepted variety of cultures, belief systems, habits and/or addictions.
We secretly believe in feeling as if we’re always a day late and a dollar short, so it’s like we keep chasing/looking for some sort of fulfillment. Yep, it’s time for us to Stop participating in how consciousness wants to direct us and instead realize that we can Direct ourself.
As Consciousness, we’ll seek, plan, prepare and organize for a secured life for ourself and our family and in self interest, we forget to value everyone as we ignore the suffering of others. There’s no longer anywhere to hide. We understand how deadly our Current Money System is, where even the simplest of pleasures require time and money and the majority of us don’t seem to have enough of either .
When my partner and I go to town it takes a good 45 minutes to an hour to get to the store and another hour to get home. Time and the Money… Recently, we spent 128.00 U.S. Dollars for a few veggies, fruits, mushrooms and a package of organic tea!
It’s crazy because the experience of Life in it’s simplest form of day to day survival, has become so expensive that’s it’s not only embarrassing, it’s downright criminal. I mean seriously, making a living and a life for oneself could be a Journey to Life, to self perfection.
Making a living and a life within a system where everyone is guaranteed a living wage, where you can learn to depend upon yourself, whereby becoming responsible and accountable and capable of Stopping what we’ve accepted and allowed. It is only then that we’ll begin to share with Everyone all that this physical Earth experience offers for Each one of us.
No one should have to live ‘a day late and a dollar short’ kind of lifestyle.
No one should have to beg for food.
No one should be able to have a home unless Everyone is able to have a home.
No one should be afraid of a hard days work simply because they’re not paid enough to do it.
No one should go to bed hungry.
No one should go to bed cold.
No one should ever suffer because of lack of.
Everyone should be able to determine what their skills are and how they’ll be able to contribute to making a living in this world toward creating Heaven on Earth as we implement the Simple Law, ‘Give as You would like to Receive’.
I commit myself to direct myself to show that the only chance for Life on Earth to continue will be for the human to come together as a group in agreement in full commitment to each other, to create a World that behaves according to what’s best for All.
“What makes one life more, or less than any other life? What makes one life any more, or less, worthy than any other life? What gives any one life more, or less, value than another? Why should the end of one life be felt more, or less, keenly than another? Why should the suffering of one life be regarded as more, or less, important than another?” Cerise Poolman, Activist’s Journey to Life
