Changing the System Mindfully. Are we imprisoned by our unexamined concepts???
Humanity is imprisoned by a heartless monetary system, co-dependently arising from dichotomy of man and nature, self and society, ecology and economy, and public and private. How is the system fabricated? How do we awaken from our collective delusion and suffering? Please share this blog for Contemplative Social Action to Cultivate a Culture of Awakening!

Some Not So Visible News

  • Just gotten a note from a friend that Amero may be coming sooner than you think! Don't count on me. Do your own research starting at Wikipedia
Conscious Media network is featuring a video on Amero and Lou Dobbs of CNN
and Dennis Kucinich on bailout and debt-based money system.

As conscious citizens and consumers we are now becoming increasingly aware that political democracy alone becomes meaningless without economic democracy and economic justice. Wait a minute! Do we even have a political democracy? Why Amero is not being as publicly discussed as Euro has been? Who ultimately benefits from such secrecy?

As Ron Paul says, the power to regulate the value of money, does not mean the federal Government can debase the money. Right now our Government is borrowing $2.2 Billion everyday mainly from china and Japan to pay for our overseas empire. As our dollar value declines, we cannot expect these and other countries to hold onto theirs for ever, and when they decide to dispose dollars, our fantasy world comes crashing us. No more empire, no more pledging trillions more in entitlements...if people wants to be free from a state apparatus that that threatens their liberties, squanders their resources on endless wars, destroys their values of dollar and spews forth endless propaganda, there's no force that can stop them...let the Revolution begin. - The Revolution, Ron Paul.

We cannot solve poverty and economic injustice . Yet we seem to have endless supply of debt-currency for the military-intelligence complex, War on Terror exploits, manhattan project, big pharma, destructive derivatives, or adventures in Science like CERN Hadron Collider!

The Buddha Way is the compassionate way of a peaceful warrior, a warrior who has conquered all ignorance, passion and agression through realization of impermanence of all phenomena, interdependence of all life and primordial non-duality of samsara and nirvana. The Buddha way is to be constantly mindful in the way we perceive, think, speak and act in the world and whether our unexamined views, ideas, attention and mindless actions are generating more stress, delusion and dukkha or alleviating them for the well being and happiness of all?

Can we save ourselves from our collective ignorance regarding man-made currecy? Can we make the radical shift from the old invisible, unconscious and false paradigm of 'money as debt' to the new luminous and compassionate paradigm of 'money as trust' through collective learning. YES WE CAN! Reach the Millenium goals and save our planet.

Let us hold that Vision for 2009! May all beings be free from suffering and the root of suffering!
