In the past I have often gotten discouraged when I look at the predicament we are in. We have been cultured and educated for aggressive growth strategy. The question that has haunted me again and again, as I look at our collective current trajectory, is how can we engage ourselves in a manner that utilizes natural processes for the provision of food, water and energy in a non-disruptive way. What will it take to reclaim paradise?
I know that as the corporate sector gets on board they will begin to actively value and support the many unique and amazing people that have inspired this Aquarian Renaissance. Corporations will shift into cooperations for life currency. They will begin to work like terminators with local adaptation advocates to change the economic growth monster that are now literally decimating our planet for profit. We have access to a much better model that can provide a good chance of our survival. It has been right at our fingertips. Nature is in close harmony with the environment in every way.
We all understand that survival and well being is paramount to growing profit and products. Our current practices are driven by reckless productivity and wasteful consumption for profit. But we are all uncertain on how our lives can be practically changed to become sustainable and better.
The forced economic growth that drives the market is fueled by the competitive wave of production to create products and services that have and grow consumers confidence. Our culture, corporate and green, are driven by a production blind spot for goods and services for profit. We collectively reinforce the collective delusion that growth in income ensures our safety and provides all essentials as we continue to work and compete for economic access. In the capitalist market people exercised enormous power, and it helped to create and maintain social inequality.
There is a movement of people now, private, corporate, and governance, that are recognizing that our cultured ideals of success are seriously flawed. Many are now working diligently without financial reward because their aim is to shift the collective values to live sustainably and cooperatively. They are motivated by an inherent impersonal objective. They see themselves as belonging to the earth rather than the earth belonging to them, and they see themselves equal to all living things, and not superior.
The question that we need to explore is how can our corporations become cooperation that advocates for life currency? How can these new models of cooperation be motivated by incentives that creates access and values meaningful participation in all productivity of goods and services that are essential to nurture individuals and grow sustainable and long lasting communities. What does it truly look like to build and enjoy a good life together rather than material accumulation and economic entitlement. To resolve our ecological predicament we must all become involved in discovering solutions.
Far to many people are shamed, rejected, and without access and meaningful participation in the model of economic productivity. The underlying principles concerning our access and meaningful participation in producing food, energy, water, housing and other materials are those of sustainability and self-sufficiency.
Every local community must be responsible to the best of their abilities for supplying themselves with the basic necessities of food, energy and water, and for providing health and education services that nurture inherent skills and aptitudes forward from the places where they live. In our new tomorrow all people are valued and recognized as our equal throughout their lives. This will bring obvious benefits in terms of mental health and physical wellness, education, satisfying work, and involvement in governance, peace , and connected prosperity.
Holistic communities, not individuals with economic entitlement, will own and regulate land and its resources for sustainable practices. Private ownership of land and resources will be fully replaced by cooperative ownership and numerous skill and resource divisions on the local community level.
We will tell new stories and create comedies on how we got sucked into living from pay check to pay check, and that we thought progress was access to a mortgage that ensured a life of debt slavery We will feel free and alive as we have understood how our dreams are naturally aligned with our purpose.
We are individually and collectively beginning to recognize the fatally absurd economic box we have been conditioned to conform to from a preconscious level from birth to grave. An economic box reinforced by other cultured productivity boxes, a complex system to ensure productivity and growth disconnected from all of life.
These structures have begun to disintegrate as individuals and collectives now reclaim their life currency and sovereign birthrights. Each one of us are contributing and shaping this new reality. We are individually discovering that all dissonance are the inherent feedback that speaks directly to our current disassociation and misalignment with natural life. We have all been caught up in the ideals of growth, production, and efficiency engineering. Corporate management and shareholders are not our enemies, they are friends and family, blaming and shaming stalls all progress. We are beginning to better understand the essential need for deepening our connection to each other and the connected tapestry of life this beautiful planet provides us with. Let us encourage this movement by loving action and impeccable words. To further expand this dialogue read the below Responses to Reclaiming Paradise Part 2.
