The Impossible Alternative

“Hypnotized by our culture, most people believe that our current form of money is the only rational way to exchange value — that a debt-based currency, detached from any tangible asset, is something as organic and inevitable as carbon molecules, ice, or photosynthesis. We forget that money, in its current form, is just a tool.

Humans created money to perform certain functions and satisfy certain needs. But just as engineers and computer programmers drop cruder, out-of-date tools and pick up better ones as soon as they become available, we might also switch to more sophisticated instruments for transferring goods and services that function more efficiently and equitably… As an operating system for society, money needs a major upgrade. This upgrade will not just happen on its own; we need to apply our intelligence and creativity to make it happen…

More fundamental than any new currency is the shift in awareness, the change of consciousness, necessary before a truly equitable global society can emerge. This change is already occurring on many levels, some visible and some subliminal, throughout our increasingly interconnected world…

Personally, I agree with the visionary thinker Jose Arguelles, who proposes that time is not money: time is art. The next phase of human development should be one of conscious evolution and co-creative collaboration, when we recognize that society is, in itself, an art project.”

The Light

‘”There is a crack, a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in.” ~Leonard Cohen

“A crack could be anything that “goes wrong” in your life — in relationships, finances, work, health, etc. First you suffer, then (potentially), you let go of your attachments. And so you are forced to go deeper within, to a place of peace and silent power…

it’s only when you are not attached to anything, that you truly appreciate everything.”‘ ~Eckhart Tolle

Prepare for 2012’s Energies

“Having power over your own mind and emotions will become an essential skill in 2012 and beyond.

As a divine changemaker, you are learning to master life’s turbulent waters and find the calm… When your calm state comes from within, generated by your own internal shifting, you connect with an unshakeable peace. No drug can give you this. No other person or thing can give you this. The parade of change in 2012 will give you ample opportunities to further master how you respond to chaos.

Set your intent now that you will be an ongoing voice of grounded reason and calmness. Invite your higher wisdom to give you daily guidance and help in mastering this light-filled way of being.”
