RICHES

by Pett Corby

bob marley to his son

While I was doing my housework today, I heard my daughter, from the other room, to shout, “I’m rich!” “Of course you are,” I said. “What do you mean exactly?” “I’m counting my money[1] and there’s a lot,” she said! “Money doesn’t make you rich, darling” I replied. “Your wealth is your mind, it’s not in your money box or the bank for that matter. Money isn’t necessary[2] for the survival of a living creature, anyway,” I continued. “Really? That’s interesting,” she exclaimed! “Birds and animals have no money, but they eat every day and raise their little ones too year after year,” I went on with my thoughts…

According to a definition in the Oxford Dictionary ‘riches’ means “Material wealth”. It is the result of something – the consequence of something that has been done before we can see it in front of our eyes.

Let’s examine the ways Man creates. 1. He creates with his hands using materials he can touch, that are already in existence. 2. He reproduces by multiplying – passing genetic material to his children. And, there is another third way in which Man creates that actually proceeds both those methods mentioned above. What is it? 3. Man creates mentally too. The material world around you is a result of your thinking – a mental process. Everything you see around yourself has been in someone’s mind once before you are can see it in front of your eyes. 

If you don’t doubt that you are going to have food on your table tomorrow you will always have it. God gives you everything you need for free as He gives it to the animals. If you picture in your mind those animals that do not depend on people you’ll find that they always have food when they need it. They don’t think about tomorrow. They live in the present moment. They eat as much as they need and when they’ve had enough they leave the rest. They know, in their mind, that they can eat whenever they are hungry, but it is not the case with people. The humankind wants to have more and more to feel secure because the world around him bombards him with news and ads about scarcity. He has a fridge and big one too, to stock up because he doubts tomorrow. Fear about tomorrow is in his mind. (How did it get there?)

Humans have a different programming and therefore different understanding about life than that of the animals. Only people are ‘homeless’. Animals in the same situation are commonly called ‘free’. They are responsible for their food, while people labeled homeless are cast-outs from the System – the chain of the organised food supply and made to believe that food outside it doesn’t come easy. It is engraved in their mind. (How did that happen?) The system, with its mind control methods, prevents them from having what otherwise God gives abundantly.

An old story talks about a chained little elephant that was trying to break free from its chain, but it gave up trying after the second months.[3] Then, its trainer took it off, but the elephant didn’t try to escape. Why? What hold it? Simple. It’s own (limiting) belief for the elephant is now in the prison of its own mind. This is a good metaphor for humanity, which has been manipulated into believing that it can not escape its chain and thus has stopped trying. However, it is very simple to break free… Read on to the end to find out how…

How come humanity has become so vulnerable? Man is the crown of God’s creation after all! He can speak and communicate in many different ways: languages and technologies. He has a logical thinking, can create with his hands, sing and dance like nobody else in the animal kingdom and yet there is a staggering number of people on our planet who are dying of starvation?

According to Poverty.com about 21 000 people die of hunger and hunger-related causes every day. This is 7 665 000 people per year![4] An amazing amount of people suffer starvation, but not because for a lack of food. We produce astonishing quantities and only less than a half of that reaches our plates! Figures, from the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, show between 30% and 50% or 1.2-2bn tonnes of food never make it on to a plate. Almost half of the world’s food thrown away… (!?)[5]

So many people starve to death and at the same time figures show that the human population has grown to epidemic proportions. From the Industrial Revolution, in 1760, until today it is on a steady increase every moment. Currently we are over 7 billion people on our planet and counting.[6] On one hand we die of hunger, while on the other hand we managed to overpopulate our planet.

What a mess! But wait, there’s more. In a DailyMail article titled, Humans ARE directly to blame for a rise in the number of endangered species, claim scientists, from 21 June 2013, Nicola Rowe talks about the “human population density and the threats to species of mammals and birds”.[7] How did we come to this? Simple.

The system drives this “progress” by directing (negative) thoughts, meaning energy, in the desired directions using its carefully crafted and maintained mind control tools like the television, monetary system, education system, food and health system, energy industry, entertainment system, and others, and of course – the society – to point the finger at those who go astray. You are not supposed to think for yourself. You should not have your own, original thoughts. You are supposed to think and do as you are told. It practically boils down to three things: produce, reproduce and consume day in and day out all year round until the last day of your life at the expense of yourself, animal life and the planet as a whole. Nice one!

God has intended man to live in abundance[8] never in scarcity. Money isn’t where the happiness is, but the system has turned the idea into a religion also called ‘profit’ (for companies) or ‘economic growth’ (for countries) – a dangerous concept, but more about it another time.[9][10][11]

bob marley quote

You give your money to the banks. Why? They don’t produce anything. They do not have money of their own – it is yours. Then, they lend it back to you as credit, which is basically a figure typed on a computer, charging you an interest on it. In plain language this means to get something for nothing. If you and I do anything similar it would result in a prison sentence for us, but for the banking system it’s a business as usual. You have to work from dawn till dusk to pay back your loan and its interest, and of course, if you are unable to keep paying they can make you homeless. But, don’t hold it against them. I’m not telling you anything that you don’t already know. They are just doing their job. They are also doing what they are told. Don’t take it personally. It all happens because You have allowed it to happen. You have let outside forces to control your mind and thus to rule your life.

“Do not be taken in that those who keep control over the money, keep control of your future because this money they have taken from you, and you worship them and elevate them.” Vasil Levski

bob-marley

It is time to replace the thought of money as being a symbol of riches with the thought – “My riches depend on me and the quality of thoughts I’m having most of the time. I’m responsible for what happens in my life.” Start thinking differently now to experience a better tomorrow. See yourself, on the screen of your mind, in possession of everything you want your life to be.

Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve.” Napoleоn Hill, Author of Think and Grow Rich.[12][13]

What you are thinking right now builds your tomorrow. What are you thinking right now? What future are you building in your mind in this very moment? You can have whatever you want or be whatever your heart desires. “Whatever you think you become,” said Buddha. It’s a self prophecy really. Your mind makes it happen. The system knows that and uses it every day for its own benefit. This is why it is keeping your mind busy with entertainment and work around the clock so you don’t think for yourself, but keep doing as you are told OR… Or? The system will collapse. That’s right. It will cease to exists. (It’s like a business – if you don’t have loyal customers you shut the shop down.) You keep the system alive. It needs you to survive. It needs you to be miserable for it to survive. Your prosperity, God’s wish for you, is not good for the system.

I hear you say “It can’t be true that we keep the system alive”. I’ll explain by giving you a few examples. If you don’t send your children to school and educate them outside the system – the education system will collapse. It will cease to exist. If you stop using money/banks – the banking system will collapse. It won’t be needed. If you stop sending your boys to wars – there won’t be wars. Who is going to fight them? Surely not those who demand them. And so on and so on… 

Start changing your mind today; start occupying your mind with what You and Only you want in order to have the kind of future YOU want. It doesn’t depend on the government. Do not blame them for your unhappiness. It’s not their fault. It can never be. They are only doing their job – doing what they are told and it’s not to protect your interest, but that of the system. Your happiness is your job. Start thinking thoughts of happiness today. You do not need anything to be happy. You only need to decide to be one to open the road to what you want to see and experience in life.

There is no way to happiness; Happiness is the way…” ― Thich Nhat Hanh – Vietnamese zen buddhist monk.[14]

The future starts NOW! Be the captain of your ship.

You are the captain of your own ship; don’t let anyone else take the wheel.” Michael Josephson, Founder of the Josephson Institute of Ethics

Whatever you hold in your mind will tend to occur in your life. If you continue to believe as you have always believed, you will continue to act as you have always acted. If you continue to act as you have always acted, you will continue to get what you have always gotten. If you want different results in your life or your work, all you have to do is change your mind.” Anonymous

You and only you are responsible for your own life. You create your life with the thoughts you keep in your mind most of the time. You can start an continuous positive improvement by stopping to watch TV, which will reduce the programming you receive from outside sources.

Take control of your mind to restore the control over your life. Start by choosing your own thoughts now. It’s as simple as it sounds.

And one last thing. Louise Hay, an American motivational author recommends to LOVE yourself!” Keep repeating the following affirmation, “I love and approve of myself exactly as I am” at least 400 times per day (about 10 minutes) for the next two months at least to start reclaiming your self-respect and your good mood too. Stop beating ourself up and use bad words about yourself and the others… A man who respects himself does not hurt himself nor others.

Remember, it all starts and finishes with you. You are responsible for your life whether you like it or not.

Be the change you wish to see in life.” ― Mahatma Gandhi, the Indian leader who led his British-ruled-country to independence and who inspired movements for civil rights and freedom across the world.

And a final point:

When all the trees
have been cut down,

when all the animals
have been hunted

when all the waters
are polluted,

when all the air is
unsafe to breath,

only then will you
discover you cannot
eat money.

(Cree prophecy, North America)

[1Social and psychological value of money

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Social_and_psychological_value_of_money

Money today is fiat money, a symbol of value created by the human imagination with no intrinsic value of its own. A coin or paper currency note has value because people accept it as a symbolic medium of exchange. The economic value of money as measured by its purchasing power is a subject of economic theory. However economics does not explain how individual human beings and societies came to accept symbolic money as a medium of exchange or store of value. The process of according value to a symbol is psychological and social. Money is a social institution based on the consent of the population and a psychological symbol based on the consent of the individual.[1]

Fiat money

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fiat_money

Fiat money is currency which derives its value from government regulation or law. The term derives from the Latin fiat (“let it be done”, “it shall be”).[1] It differs from commodity money and representative money. Commodity money is based on a good, often a precious metal such as gold or silver, which has uses other than as a medium of exchange, while representative money is a claim on the commodity rather than the actual good.[2][3]

1. Fiat is the third-person singular present active subjunctive of fiō (“I become”, “I am made”).

Definition

Fiat money has been defined variously as:

  • Any money declared by a government to be legal tender.
  • State-issued money which is neither convertible by law to any other thing, nor fixed in value in terms of any objective standard.
  • Intrinsically valueless money used as money because of government decree.
  • While gold- or silver-backed representative money entails the legal requirement that the bank of issue redeem it in fixed weights of gold or silver, fiat money’s value is unrelated to the value of any physical quantity.
