Something is badly wrong when the core expectation for the sacred span of a human life on Earth, whatever its duration, has been reduced to resourcing a roof over one's head, putting food in the belly and having an occasional afternoon in the sun. Does this enrich the soul? Is this creatively and emotionally fulfilling? Is it what we're supposed to be doing here? We know the answers.
The mega-corporations like Exxon Mobil, Wal-Mart, Royal Dutch Shell, BP, Toyota, Chevron and ING Group do not exist for the benefit of humanity, nor do they respect the planet from which they extract their raw materials. They exist to sequester and homogenize the creative output of man. If it is not incorporated, it does not exist. Any apparently heartening stories of corporations helping to stimulate local communities, build schools and support indigenous traditions are essentially bogus. Some people get fed, watered, housed and employed - but it's not for their benefit. Corporations create such schemes to help mitigate the hideous stench of their own abusive economic nihilism.
Money is an abstract trading unit with no inherent value. The people who keep the ledger and govern the fractional-reserve banking system, are neither equitable nor benevolent folk. Their primary motivation is to transform the proletariat's time into money. Grim equations slither through society. Work hard. Pay taxes. Move up the ladder. Save for the future. Money = Control. Even the enduring mirages of Fascism, Communism, Capitalism and Socialism are all identical at the apex of the pyramid. It's just a matter of politeness as to how hard and how swiftly the boot is brought down upon your face. The very lifeblood of Western commerce itself - competition - is nothing more than a rabid virus that will destroy its own host should that entity deign to contemplate any large scale collaborations for the common good. In this manner, sustainable energy and food solutions are logically undermined before they're even assessed. This is why the existing energy abundance on earth is being brutally suppressed.
Consider existence not as an unfolding process, but as an object. We can't see what lies ahead for us from a flat `on the map' perspective. We are quite unsighted as to wider perceptions as we traverse the face of this immense multidimensional object. To gain a higher perspective, we need to get up and above the object, into the surrounding and enfolding dimensional space. Only from this zoomed out viewpoint, can we see the object. We see at once that there is indeed no time, no past, no future. There is only `contact' with it. Everything is already present within this fabulous iridescent object of pulsing sacred geometry, stretching monumental distances in all directions. Flying over it, we may be able to see large areas of the object, but it would take an unfathomable consciousness, an almost infinite fractal resolution, to take it all in at once. Perhaps that's not the point right now. It's about the journey. It's about our free will, intricately and creatively illuminated in each sovereign step we take.
