Day 268: Demonizing the Poor

For Context: America’s Poor Are Demonized To Justify Huge Cuts in Gov’t Prgrams

Have you ever noticed how rarely the topic of ‘Poverty’ is discussed publicly, especially within the political arena and mainstream media? I guess it makes sense that the rich and famous wouldn’t want to talk about poverty or starvation – because bringing an awareness to the reality that poverty does actually exist and,  is how life is experienced on earth – could prove rather disastrous for those already in power.

What I’ve noticed is how the topic of poverty and income inequality is ever so-lightly being thrown around amongst the Democratic and Republican Parties, but it seems to be only a means in which to keep the numbness to the topics intact…

It’s strange because we’re demonizing poverty,  like for instance just today, in the United States, the Department of Labor reported that more people than ever are giving up on finding work. This gives us the impression that people are lazy and don’t want to work and in this we begin to demonize those who end up living below the poverty line…
poverty
A Quote from this article puts it this way: “The odd way our unemployment statistics work, makes the number the newspapers report go down.

Because when a few hundred thousand people say: ‘All right, I give up, it is so hopeless, I will never find a job,’ that, curiously, results in the unemployment number going down because the number that gets reported in the papers is a measure of a percentage of how many of the people looking for work are unable to find it.”

We talk about Income inequality without looking for a permanent Solution for the alarming and ever so-growing number of people who are living below the poverty line.   It’s time that each one of us – no matter who we are or where we live – that we start asking ourselves ‘how much longer we’re willing to continue to support the rich’? And to instead, begin to Support Each Other.

I’ve been guilty of demonizing the poor, but as I’ve looked closer at the point,  I’ve realized my demonizing the poor existed in pictures in my mind of what/how I ‘thought’ Poverty looked like,  but honestly, I had no real clue what being poor looked like in real life.  I certainly didn’t comprehend how close a middle-class family is to living below the poverty line.   Hell, I watched my mom and dad punch the time clock on their run at surviving and the only thing that’s changed is that there are fewer jobs now than there was then.

The one thing that we can be sure of is that we’re going to have to keep racing the clock to make money or we’ll die, because life is NOT free.  That means that we’re going to have to work every day to get that paycheck and then when we get it,  we’re terrified because we realize we’re almost broke and we just got paid.

So times are hard and of course we want to work because we want/need to eat and so the days of assuming folks are lazy because they don’t have a job simply isn’t true and, if we’re lucky enough to have a job, then we should consider ourselves as one of the elite.  One of the elite because in order for us to have, there have to be those who have not. That’s a hard one to swallow but deep within me, I finally get that there is no excuse for accepting and allowing income inequality and poverty and starvation and war to exist in any way whatsoever.  Because at the end of the day what’s happening is, we’re fighting against each other – while the rich and the famous reap the rewards from our insanity/acceptance/actions.

So, Let’s Stop killing ourselves trying to survive within our Current Broken Money System and let’s begin to Support each other as a Group. Let’s see how strong we are together and change the system, because our strength is in how many of us there are.

Let’s come together and Investigate the Solution to Income Inequality and Poverty, Let’s investigate and Guarantee a Living Income to Everyone.

Fear of Commitment (Part Three): DAY 441

“I forgive myself that I haven’t accepted and allowed myself to within this see, realise and understand to what extent my Mind/me within and as it was “closed, isolated and separated” from everything/everyone else within this existence – to the extent where I would not have within and as my existent thinking-processes/reasoning skills been able to question and so investigate ‘who I am within me/my life and my relationship to all that is here’. Therefore exposing the extent to which our thinking/reasoning and even seeing/consideration and regard for ourselves and others is limited/locked-in and caged into and as the confines of our own Consciousness – not leaving any room/space for anything/anyone other than our own Self Interest of wants, needs and desires.

I commit myself to assist and support self to change myself from Consciousness-confinement in the Mind, to and as expanding my Self-Awareness into and as Physical equality and oneness – within this process, to see/realise/understand how ‘oneness’ already exist in that we’re all physically here in this physical existence, however Equality within that Oneness does not yet exist, because we’re all individually separate in our own Minds/Consciousness – competing for our wants, self-interest and greed instead of sharing, consideration/regard and giving to others as we would to ourselves. Therefore, I commit myself to assist and support myself to practically in moments where I see I am thinking only of MY WANT and not what is best for everyone – to stop and change, to become more aware of the consequence MY WANTS create not only for me, but for others as well.” ~ Sunette Spies

Day 164: Innerspace

 I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to become frustrated within myself where within me as my physical body I feel as if I’m experiencing myself as having to push myself through the great barrier reef of suppressed self-judgment and emotions which I have attached a definition of myself to which reads failure.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to when within my mind I hear, ‘suck it up and ignore the pain within yourself’, to not realize that I’m manipulating and justifying who I am so much so that I reach a point of the grandest of self illusions -where I’ve got no clue who and/or what character or personality will show up as me when I stand before friends and family who know me best in how I’ve always pretended to be what I perceive they expect me to be.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to within my mind exist as crooked, dishonest and basically someone who has been full of shit in how I become angry towards my children and my partner, and then have the nerve to wonder why I have pain in and as my physical body which in itself feels crooked with kinks in it, and within that,  I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to not realize how through the relationships I have with my children and my partner, I have suppressed myself in and as guilt, shame and regret and where I direct myself as such through and as emotions inward unto me as my physical body which causes within me a sense of loss which I then define myself as in fear of.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to believe that I’m not able to forgive me for the mother I have been in how I raised my children in and as self-interest, fear and greed.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to when experiencing pain within and as my physical body to participate in the thought, ‘I can’t do this, it’s to painful’.

When and as I see myself go into fear where I tighten up and suppress myself and become characters and personalities that I see, realize and understand compound into and manifest systems within me as my physical body – I stop and I breathe. I commit myself to me as my physical body and this physical reality first and foremost to thus begin to be a living example of life according to what’s best for all.

I commit myself to forgiving me for the definition I have lived of myself as,  ‘a mom who failed her children’, and to redefine myself according to me as a mom breathing and walking here with both feet on the ground walking in and as self-honesty.

I commit myself to stop going emotionally bankrupt within and as my mind where I suppress within me raging systems of and consciousness as shame, regret and fear of loss.

I commit myself to forgive myself for the guilt I’ve existed as of not being the mother to my children that gives way to allow their child to express who they may become as life according to what’s best for all.

I commit myself to accept the breath of life unto and as all of me as my physical body.

“I commit myself to remind each one that we are all guests on Earth and we have abused the hospitality of Earth and created an Asylum and Hospital out of Earth searching for Feelings of energy in Self-interest. Earth will no longer tolerate the abuse and we as Humanity will now face our final our within which each one must decide who The I will be, Life or Self Interest. There is no one that can deny that deep inside this hour has always been expected.” ~ Bernard Poolman

Day 117: The Right to Die

Tears of desperate locked-in syndrome sufferer Tony Nicklinson as High Court rules he CAN’T ask a doctor to end his life – –

The above article is about a 58-year-old father of two who is mentally sound but paralyzed from the neck down and unable to speak. For two years he’s been battling to persuade three judges of the High Court to rule that if and when he decides he wants to die, that doctors will be immune from prosecution if they help him to do so. Recently, he lost in his war for ‘the right’ to end his life.

His wife said her husband was ‘absolutely heartbroken’ because he’s been condemned by the law to ‘a life of increasing indignity and misery’.

It’s a strange thing to read, that someone is ‘fighting’ the laws of our current world/money system for the right to end one’s life so that they won’t have to suffer a life of ‘indignity and misery’. Because obviously, the laws of our current world/money system have already denied ‘the right for All to be able to live a life in dignity’ – where 30,000 plus children die a miserable death every single day from starvation.

Who the hell cares about their indignity and misery? They’re starving to death! They don’t have the luxury of a two year court battle to survive life.

There is something here we had better grasp – that how we experience ourselves within our world, is by our own creation as consciousness, which we agree to and manifest within our world accordingly.

Like it or not – we’re All responsible for how every single one of us experience life, whether that be through the suffering/misery resulting from having a stroke or the daily shocking statistics of 30,000 + children starving to death.

If there’s misery, pain, suffering, anguish and suppression amongst us, where one wishes they would die but are unable to – that is what it is as a direct result of our current world/money system. It’s time for us to realize that ALL challenges we face are according to what I / WE have accepted and allowed ourselves to be and become.

The Question is – what have we accepted and allowed ourselves to become?

For Life on Earth to actually change – where No one suffers and every single life is given equal support and assistance according to individual needs – that require us to stop who we are in/as self-interest, ego and greed.

In order to provide effective life support according to what’s best for self, requires a system where we come together as a group, to take self-responsibility and support a world/money system according to what’s best for All.

There is ONLY ONE solution where peaceful change is possible, that is through an Equal Money System.

I commit myself to comprehend completely for myself to thus show how one cannot escape facing/forgiving self – because even in death self must take self-responsibility for Self as Life as All in All ways Equally.

I commit myself to Never stop supporting an Equal Money System which will provide All living beings with The Right to Experience LIFE in DIGNITY.

I commit myself to show how an Equal Money System will allow each one of us the ability to clarify and redefine ourselves through self-directed choices of/as self-responsibility for and as All Living beings.

I commit myself to show how with an Equal Money System, the Right of Life will give each individual being the right to exist in dignity in/as Heaven on Earth – where fighting to live and die will not be a battle nor even a QUESTion within the minds of men.

I commit myself to show how life within an Equal Money System will replace struggling to survive to that of Harmony Amongst Neighbors.

I commit myself to Life in Equality as Heaven on Earth wherein ego, greed and self-interest become obsolete as expressions.

I commit myself to Life in Equality as Heaven on Earth where Equal Money will pave the way for Peace and a Dignified Life for All.

Day 114: Know Thyself

Eating egg yolks is as ‘bad as smoking’ in speeding up coronary heart disease – –

I used to believe whatever nonsense someone threw my way before I began walking the Journey to Life in writing and applying self-forgiveness, wherein I’ve realized that, hey, I can take self-responsibility for myself and for my world as myself and make decisions based upon what I have investigated and lived as, and how what’s best for me is according to what’s best for All.

It’s time we ask ourselves why is it that we wait around for somebody to tell us what to eat, what to believe in, how to behave, and what is best for who we are as our physical body.

So yes, I’ve come to realize that what is written in the above article, is simply Not a fact. I have been lowering my cholesterol for the past 6 months, and in doing so, I’ve been eating eggs at least 5 days out of every week. If you look at people who have normal cholesterol, you’ll find that it’s Not cholesterol that clogs arteries – it’s foods high in saturated and hydrogenated fats, and all that ‘white’ stuff, such as flour and sugar that leads to our demise.

An egg contains only two grams of saturated fat and 75 calories versus seven grams of saturated fat and 268 calories one will find in a small 3 1/2 ounce hamburger patty. Eggs actually qualify as “low in saturated fat”.

A point here to realize is, that if one’s cholesterol is high, then clearly it’s time to change one’s eating habits and lifestyle. Thus, take self-responsibility and investigate for self what is best for ones physical body, and make adjustments accordingly. Common sense is key and is something we as humanity are certainly lacking in.

If we want more nutritious eggs, then we better investigate what the hens are being fed. Did you know that hens that are fed on barnyard plant food produce eggs that are lower in cholesterol than commercially fed caged hens?

I mean, we allow hormones, antibiotics and pesticides to be injected in almost every food item we purchase! So is it really a surprise that more and more humans are becoming downright fat and sick? No, it isn’t. At this point, the egg yolk – is the least of our concerns.

We are knee deep in bullshit and there is not one single person to blame because we are All accepting and allowing ourselves to be contained and enslaved within it.

Stop buying into what those who have all the money want you to believe. Investigate the Solution that will give each and every one of us that which has Never existed within this world. A Life of Dignity as Heaven on Earth with Equal Money.

*On the trail of the land grabbers: The British imperialists snapping up swathes of Africa to cash in on the world’s food shortage – and forcing out small farmers – –

I forgive myself for not realizing the extent that human behaviour can be bought and sold all in the name of progress.

I forgive myself for not realizing that I can be paid to believe that which I believe and still not realize my knowledge has been bought and paid for in the name of progress.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to not realize that through land grabbers seeking profit over life the soil of our earth is dying and we call it making progress.

I forgive myself for not realizing how through continuing to support our current world/money system all biodiversity of our forest’s is being destroyed and we refer to that as making progress.

I forgive myself for not realizing how we’re destroying our communities through expelling people from their land in the hopes of striking it rich from large scale farm producers who offer big dreams/money to those who aren’t able to resist the promise/money that we’re making ‘progress’.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to not realize that when someone references the amount of progress we’re making – what they’re really referring to is the amount of money they’re hoping to make.

I forgive myself for not realizing that in the name of progress is the nature of myself in becoming the fear of being inconvenienced.

I forgive myself for not realizing that ‘in the name of progress, aka ‘money’, we will accept and allow that which results in destruction and misery to ourselves and the land of our earth/water/air.

I forgive myself for not realizing the harmful repercussions that are felt painfully by native communities and small scale farmers who are forced/bribed to leave their land whether through selling and/or through thugs and threats which replace checkbooks as negotiation tools – when the selling of one’s land is refused.

I forgive myself for not realizing that farmers need practical support not small lump sums of money as bribery and/or eviction notices.

I forgive myself for not realizing how in my want, want, want, I’ve failed to see, realize and understand what the growing and producing of the foods I want to eat are the results of/and what other’s are loosing in the process of in the name of making progress.

I forgive myself for not realizing the amount of chemicals in the foods I’m eating because as long as the food looks good and tastes good, then I’ve not cared to question what goes into producing it – in the name of progress.

I forgive myself for not realizing that the industrialized food system IS unsustainable and can’t go on this way because mono-cultures are in-fact very dangerous in that a large number of the same species are being grown together without variation – which is actually unheard of in nature, because nature doesn’t have mono-cultures.

I forgive myself that I haven’t seen, realized and understood that when we grow to much of the same thing, we end up with to many pests of that same thing all in the name of progress.

I forgive myself for not realizing that the only reason we are able to grow the exact same species of the same animal in close confinement is because we are using antibiotics to keep them alive – in the name of progress.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed a system where we’ve taken the livestock, the animals, off of the farms and put them in factories/mono-cultures – where in order to keep them healthy, their waste is full of hormones, antibiotics and pesticides, thus, we create pollution problems where there wasn’t one.

I forgive myself for not realizing that mono-cultures of corn, soy, rice and cotton have the same issue, where it takes an immense amount of fertilizer and pesticides to keep the crops healthy, in the name of progress.

I forgive myself for Not realizing that the chemicals and technology that conventional agriculture uses is aimed at eliminating risks so they can produce the most efficiently (make the most money), no matter the fact that it’s not good for our environment, the farmers, our rural communities, or the consumers, yet, we continue to accept and allow the growth of conventional agriculture in the name of progress.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed a world/money system that is so hell bent on productivity and profit that we are depleting life sustaining nutrients from our entire ecosystem, our soil, water, air and society as a whole and then we actually believe we’re making progress.

I forgive myself that I’ve not realized that when we keep animals on farms their manure is a blessing in that we can use it to replenish the soil by closing the nutrient cycle because animals eat crop wastes – the parts of the plant we don’t eat and/or sell – so, farm animals produce fertility for other crops – the animals feed the plants and the plants feed the animals and life progresses as a system of life supporting life.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed a world/money system that has taken the solution of animals and plants working together supporting one another and separated it into a system of problems which is creating illness, disease, and destruction of nature and life itself – in the name of progress.

I forgive myself for not realizing that nature doesn’t like mono-cultures and that sooner or later she destroys them – in the name of progress in supporting a world where All living beings experience life in dignity.

I commit myself to show how we destroy in the name of survival and call it progress.

I commit myself to expose the lies made in the name of progress while we rape, deplete and destroy the natural resources given for and as all Life on Earth.

I commit myself to show that the only progress being made within our world is the progress of control by those who have All the Money/Power – that’s not progress, that enslavement.

I commit myself to stop seeking experiences of convenience over life according to what’s best for All.

I commit myself to challenge our current industrialized food /money system by replacing it with that of an Equal Money System.

I commit myself to support an education/world/money system which secures the natural habitat of livestock/farm animals and plantations.

I commit myself to show the common sense in how mono-cultures are destroying our soil and the very nature of life here on Earth.

I commit myself to show how an Equal Money System is the Solution to restoring our soil, land, trees/forests and streams/rivers in order to preserve the natural living of life on earth.

I commit myself to educating others in how with Equal Money all living beings will experience a life of dignity according to what’s best for All.
