A new financial system is coming our way.
The current system is broken beyond repair. There are many reasons it is broken. I have written about those in previous articles on this site so this isn’t about that.
It is about what you and I can do to contribute to the new financial system.
It may surprise you to learn that single individuals can contribute to it. After all, I’ve been writing for months about how the current financial system is controlled by The Fed, The Rothschild Family, The Big Banks, The Illuminati, The Masons, and who knows who else.
You and I are just single individuals. How can we influence these super-large organizations that have been entrenched for hundreds, if not thousands, of years?
To answer that question, I defer to Margaret Mead, who said, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”
In this case, I believe the change won’t come from those in charge. Therefore, it must come from us. One by one, we must change the way we look at life and realize that a new financial system will not help us if we don’t change our financial paradigm.
The new paradigm can no longer be about how much we take. It must be about how much we give.
We must learn to live within the gift.
I tip my hat to Charles Eisenstein and Paulo Coelho for helping me understand this.
I’ll use the next few articles to explain this concept and to define how I’m going to use this in my businesses.
As I have said many times on this website, I write so I can become clear on a new idea. I believe we teach what we need to learn. Therefore, I have not yet mastered this concept. My writing is designed to help me grasp what I intuitively know is the direction for our new financial system, whether we trade with Federal Reserve Notes, gold, or chickens.
In addition, I don’t know how long it will take those in power to admit their system no longer works. However, when they do recognize it, there will be change. I believe the change will be closely aligned to the idea of living within the gift.
This concept first requires each person to recognize his or her gift to the world.
Here is what I know about gifts:
- Each person has many gifts.
- Gifts benefit other people when given
- We would give our gifts even if we didn’t get paid for them.
- Gifts come from inspiration. This literally means they are from God’s Spirit.
- We deserve to get paid for giving them.
- No amount of payment is sufficient for the gift.
As an example, Eisenstein asks, “What is a fair rate to pay Michelangelo for painting the Sistine Chapel? How much should someone pay Mozart for composing his Requiem?”
Any amount isn’t enough.
What are your gifts?
Don’t hold back. You know you have them.
Once you identify your gifts, the next step is to look down deep and determine the worth of them?
Is any amount of payment enough to compensate you for your divine inspiration?
Do you see what I mean?
No amount of payment is sufficient.
If we buy… er… accept the information in this article, then how can we go about using it in our day to day lives, especially when we need to pay the bills?
I’ll explore that question in tomorrow’s article.
