When we live in a scarcity-based system it’s easy to believe that having abundance is near impossible, but that’s just because we’ve probably got the wrong idea of what true abundance actually is.
The ideologies that dominate our societal landscape – particularly operationally – have skewed our collective view on what’s important and what’s not. For example, our materialistic culture which has been deceived by the debunked pop philosophy of the same name has generated a plethora of issues which have distracted the masses from aligning with natural law, divine values and their true nature.
Simply, a huge proportion of the populace are in a constant state of suffering which is caused from a complex mix of self-abusive lifestyle choices, as well as the general challenges of living within the current era.
These problematic states of being include, but are not limited to:
- enslavement to debt;
- vanity and an obsession with one’s image;
- fighting to just survive;
- intergenerational poverty;
- poverty of the mind and heart;
- addictions to sugar, nutrition-scarce food, gambling, legal and illegal drugs etc;
- obsessive fixations on other people’s lives, including celebrities;
- unhealthy competition with each other;
- greed and an imbalanced sense of entitlement;
- a scarce sense of selflessness;
- a deep ignorance of how reality works;
- the quest for false power (control over others); and
- poor physical, emotional, psychological, philosophical, behavioral, social, relationship, creative and spiritual health.
Now of course all of these individual and societal illnesses are either a direct result of, or highly influenced by, the corporatocracy which exists today. The deep state and its oligarchical structure have hijacked the system with four primary methods of control, called the 4M’s. These are Money, Media, Medicine (including food) and Management (education and government).
Essentially, we have a ruling class like we’ve always had, however to still operate they have to do so in the shadows, otherwise there would be an uprising like humanity has never seen before.
Fortunately the independent media and its associated researchers, combined with more conscious people in general, have made strong progress in expanding the awareness of a very ignorant and apathetic citizenry. Slowly but surely the truth of our sick and twisted world is making its way into the understanding of greater numbers of people, leading towards a tipping point where it will be common knowledge within the collective consciousness of humanity.
This is why the controllers of the propaganda press have been nervous, which has resulted in them circulating a meme on false information to further confuse a very dazed mainstream society.
Yet regardless of this deceptive dictatorship and the toxicity it has unleashed on our local communities, our families and ourselves, never in our so-called ‘civilized’ story have we had such an opportunity to be free. This is the first time where access to available information is virtually unlimited, so with the right judgment, we can properly inform ourselves on what’s truly healthy and beneficial for our existence and then translate that education into action.
The catch is of course that we have to choose that path with persistence. Given the alternative is being subjected to the many issues we see in abundance today, it really is an easy decision.
So why aren’t more people choosing to live authentically? There are probably as many reasons as there are people, but it can be generally captured through the concepts of ‘the herd mentality’, ‘cognitive dissonance’, ‘trauma’, Stockholm syndrome’, ‘brainwashing’ and ‘laziness’. In summary, most people just don’t understand that they can actually live a truly abundant life if they simply choose to.
The consumerist template we’ve been born into in the Western World has distracted most people from even contemplating it, even if they experience ongoing suffering which leads to a permanent existential crisis. That’s because we’re hard-wired from an early age to believe that we need lots of money to live an abundant life, and to do that we need a successful career where we have to compete with each other for the scarce supply of money.
Either that, or find yourself a sugar daddy or mummy.
Moreover, all this unhealthy competitiveness means that we might win on one level, but at what cost? For starters, its always at the expense of another, opening a Pandora’s box of valueless social interactions and justifications for behavior which contradicts the golden rule. Then of course we will likely sacrifice our time, energy, health and sometimes even our heartbeat just to stay in the race with the rats…
