P.S.: Hallelujah

Like many others, I was put off by Obama's recent comment, "You didn't build that."  Now, it's obvious that he was just trying to make a point, about how things don't happen in a social vacuum.  That government, in the form of taxes, and labor, built the infrastructure for businesses to be able to transport their products to market, and so forth.  But there was a telling quality to and in his statement, that spoke of his Marxist-mentored background.

He could have said, 'But you had a lot of help in getting your product to market; and it is in paying your fair share in taxes that you personally are benefited.' And we could have then moved on, to talk about what is a given person's 'fair share' of taxes - and what all those taxes are to be used for.

And here is where we get to the crux of the matter.  The matter, of the fundamental difference between socialism and capitalism.

People talk a lot about their 'rights'.  And there are the sorts of rights - to 'life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness'; to free speech and a free press; to freedom from an overbearing state -  that are enunciated and espoused in this country's founding documents.  But there is also the matter of a different set of rights that some people talk about.  The right to a free education (including higher education), and health care, and a 'living wage'; and so forth and so on.

Well, not in this country you don't.  In this country, the basic, fundamental right is that the people have a right to the fruits of their labors; and free loaders need not apply.

So, that mentality - the mentality of getting something for nothing - has to go, in this country.

Now.  Having said all that, and gotten that point across and out of the way: We can accomplish a lot in life by pooling our efforts.  By freely giving of our labors.  By building a society based on Love - on mutual cooperation - NOT on Force.  On holding a gun to people's heads, in the form of onerous taxes, and saying to them, 'You will support others.  You will be a good, docile member of our society - or else.  We have ways to make you do so, you know.'  Meaning, the ways of the state.  Compulsion.  The threat of incarceration, or worse.  In other words: the slave state.  The command economy, indeed.

I overegg the description a little (after all, there is a difference between the quality of 'statism' of the former Soviet Union and the current Scandinavian socialist states, e.g.), but just to make my point.  Which, basically, is:

to have no part of it.  Of that way of doing things.

Now, if you go the way of Love, then that is another matter.  And I don't mean love of the state (feigned or otherwise).  I mean love of our mutual Creator; for giving us life with meaning, beyond just in and for itself only.

And that makes all the difference.

And then we are no longer talking about 'economy'.  We are talking about abundance. The abundance of the universe, that we have been given, to develop ourselves; to grow in spiritual stature.


A moneyless society: Here we come.

With the proper consciousness informing our actions, and mentality.

The consciousness of 'spiritual beings having a human experience' - and about to move out of simple human form.

Into our light bodies.

The bodies, of souls on the move.  Up.  On the stairway to the heavens.

And note the plural of that description.

For we have quite a ways to go, yet, before Unity.

Before, that is to say, the ultimate Unity, back with, and into, our Source.  But for now: a 'solid' degree of Unity:

With each other, as individuated souls still, now to be united in common cause:

Our next step.  Into 5th dimension experience.

Going Up.

Many, of Us.

Some, still with a little more seasoning left, in 3rd dimension experience, of duality.  That dimension, and quality of 'state', existing in order for souls to learn lessons.

Not just in and for itself only.

So, to those souls, I - We - say:

Please.  Join us.  Just as soon as you can.

As soon as you can make the next step on the stairway that binds us all in our very Essence.

So: See you.  And raise you One.

On our mutual way Home.


P.S.  A good statement of the quality of beingness that I was trying to convey is this one, that I came across today from a site called One World Rising, by a woman who calls herself VisionKeeper: 

I believe the Native Americans whom we brutalized and called heathens have the truest and most sacred set of beliefs on life, that if we all followed them, our lives would be very different.
American Indian Commandments
Sacred Instructions Given By The Creator To Native People At The Time Of Creation
Treat the Earth and all that dwell thereon with respect.
Remain close to the Great Spirit.
Show great respect for your fellow beings.
Work together for the benefit of all Mankind.
Give assistance and kindness wherever needed.
Do what you know to be right.
Look after the well-being of mind and body.
Dedicate a share of your efforts to the greater good.
Be truthful and honest at all times.
Take full responsibility for your actions.
That, really, says it all.
