Friend Jay has just sent me this post which — BINGO! — synchronistically, dovetails with the update I just put up on the unfolding Drake and Co. scenario, to wit: “Who knows what’s really going on? I doubt anybody has an overview of the entire situation.”
P.S. I googled Sol Luckman, and love his energy, his paintings, his writings. He feels like a decidedly kindred spirit. Check it out: crowrising.com.
In the spirit of Carl Jung, I’ve been saying and writing for years that breakdown is a prerequisite for breakthrough.
This is a universal truth, as far as I can tell, that operates both on the “macro” and “micro” scale. Or as the ancients said, “As above, so below.”
Presently, lo and behold, as seen in the crumbling-in-real-time world economy, we’re finally reaching the proverbial moment of breakdown.
Can you hear the sucking sound at the center of global finance? That’s the cosmic vacuum cleaner come to suction up the mess that has become of our social systems.
This, on the heels of the bubbling up into public awareness of such epic levels of greed and corruption on the part of the elite that the mind simply boggles.
I know people are scared we’re all going to hell in a hand basket. But I don’t think that is what’s going on here.
Something else, something wonderful is transpiring. A new world is being created out of the ashes of the old. Right now, it’s just a little hard to see for the smoke in our eyes.
It’s happening with poetic justice, you know. After so much abuse of the planet and population by the Powers that Were, there’s something virtually archetypal about so many chickens coming home to roost all at once.
I can’t bring myself to believe—despite the arguments made by a vocal minority of Internet conspiracy theorists—that the global fiscal implosion in process right now is purely by design of the so-called Illuminati.
Even if this financial crisis were planned, as David Wilcock has pointed out, the world economy is, fortunately, a complex adaptive system.
A hallmark of complex adaptive systems, a concept that has been studied rigorously, is that they cannot be manipulated in a mechanical manner.
In other words, they cannot be controlled so as to produce a preordained outcome.
Think of a house of cards falling. That’s what the global economy based on debt and fiat currency is, anyway.
You might be able to make a house of cards fall. But it’s virtually impossible to predict the exact nature of the “hand” the falling cards will create.
Will you be dealt a full house? straight aces? or a fold?
See the problem with playing God? Playing God is just another way of saying playing with fire. And much more than fingers can get burned.
While we’re at it, let’s get another thing straight. The planetary economic system is a form of slavery (if not an outright death sentence) for the vast majority of the world’s population.
If you don’t know what I mean, please, wake up.
The old system needs to crash and burn. I can’t emphasize this point enough. And if we have a soul at all, we need to be willing to let it.
While I mean “crash and burn” rather literally (think: FIGHT CLUB), I definitely don’t feel we’re headed into a decade-long Great Depression or a post-apocalyptic world.
My understanding is that new systems and technologies—better systems and technologies—have been in preparation for many long years waiting for this very moment to arrive.
Doom-and-gloomers (many of whom are probably on the payroll) who insist the world will spiral into chaos and darkness in the aftermath of the breakdown fail to realize that even our existing technologies, such as the Internet, will allow us to reorganize our society—in short order and for the betterment of all—like a truly complex adaptive system.
And even in the absence of the Internet, think of all the books and DVDs on everything from permaculture to sustainable architecture to renewable energy that are available right now around which new and old communities can rally in a country minute.
The breakdown of the old hierarchical system of control and manipulation is to be celebrated, not feared.
In the words of Steely Dan, “Any world that I’m welcome to is better than the one I come from.”
Imagine a world with no Big Brother, no war for profit, no taxation without honest representation, no compound interest, no Big Pharma, no Big Oil, no nukes, no reality TV.
Join me in letting go of the fear and being in the Moment, in the Now, of this historical transformation into a world society that is truly ours to create.
Now that we’re on the verge of breakdown, what will be your contribution to the breakthrough?
