This is a comment someone posted below the above article: “Make them earn their keep, or is that too obvious?” –
I can remember a couple of times saying something similar – thus the following self-forgiveness.
I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to support a world/money system that limits resource availability to the people of the land based on profit, where the greedy take from the needy and use the excuse of ‘make them earn their keep’ as a way of keeping their own self-absorbed lifestyle intact – instead of realizing that what is provided unto us from/as our Sun, Earth and Water, is in Keep for All Living beings, to see to it that the experience of life may become a living expression of Heaven on Earth for All – Not just for some.
I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to within and as the words: “make them earn their keep”, not seen, realized and understood that when I accept life according to one’s earnings, then I’m allowing life lived in/as yearnings – a desire for that which I seek but never attain.
I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to Not see, realize and understand how when I as a character of/as my mind, demand that another ‘earn their keep’ – what I am actually saying is that I ‘feel’ betrayed by our current world/money system and, I Fear every day that I’m Not going to have enough money to feed myself and my family, thus within and as my Fear, I become characters in/of defense – as a way of protecting myself from my own fear – wherein I go to war against my fellow beings – instead of seeing, realizing and understanding, that it is I who Decides what I accept and allow to exist as our current world/money system, and, that it is My responsibility to change that which is broken, and I see, realize and understand that our current world/money system is broken, thus, instead of blaming and shaming and demanding the continuance of a world where people must ‘Earn their keep’ – I stop. I Breathe. I Commit myself to Stand up and Support All Life according to what’s best for All, because I see, realize and understand how when I GIVE LIFE unto another, I RECEIVE LIFE unto and as me.
I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to manipulate myself and others through guilt and fear within the beLIEf that life is about ‘earning our keep’ and within that I forgive myself that I have never questioned that which I accepted – that life is something that must be earned otherwise one is not deserving of life – instead, in self-honesty, I see, realize and understand that such a beLIEf only serves the purpose of supporting the rich and enslaving the rest – thus I stop. I breathe. I Commit myself to investigating an Equal Money System as The Solution that will Save the World.
I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to exist within and as the beLIEf that life is about ‘earning one’s keep’, because I see, realize and understand that when I walk in the shoes of another, I see, realize and understand that I / We don’t require a ‘keeper’ nor do I / We require to be ‘kept’ – what I / We require is a practical living solution that equally supports who we are as LIFE as our Physical Bodies within and as our Physical Reality, and to provide All living beings with the ability to create an environment that is safe, supportive, comfortable and effective.
