Money and responsibility

Money is a very interesting point to look at, and to investigate as the main factor that is shaping and creating the human experience. I say that, because obviously 'money decides' about who we are and what we do – practically in this reality, which is physical, and the mean to transfer the 'physical value' in an easy way – is money. I say an easy way, because money is making the flow of goods (as trade) easy. And that is basically why there is such a thing as money required.

Money is like a 'fluid substance', with which we are able to 'shape' the physical reality. As it symbolizes, represents and practically have a certain value that it carries. And the value is the basic, universal, practical and real 'substance' – that controls the human world, participation and state of being. Yet what is also important to add and understand – is that the human being, is not the only living being here, and that money (as a result of human participation) do affect other living beings as well.

If we took now only the humans into consideration – we could say in a way that everyone is equal to the rules, and control that money in itself is imposing (while obviously the position in relation to money of each is not equal). Yet a proper understanding of this phenomenon, should firstly come through the proper understanding of the rules of physical matter – as rules of matter, physics, mathematics – generally as the rules of this physical reality. Where money is used just as a means to manage this reality by humans, from human perspective, and taking into consideration the human only.

Therefore money is in a way the result of our limitation and needs within this physical world. Which is why money has control, and represents power in this world. As people have needs that require to be met (shelter, food, medication, clothes etc.) – and they are not possible to be met without money, therefore money in itself has become a deciding 'power' in this world that decides 'who lives and who dies' it decides who has medication, health care, who has a place to live, and even who has food to eat.

Which is an outcome of money functioning through collective perception – as some 'force' or 'substance' 'outside of us', as 'separate' from who we are, and our participation – as it is some 'entity' that is 'there' and works as itself, and that it's outside of our responsibility. Therefore nobody takes responsibility for money itself – which constitutes the allowance and acceptance of the atrocities and abuse that is the consequence of the money system that everyone takes part in, by the very nature of placement of money within this physical reality.

And that is why we're standing for and working towards an Equal Money System, which is a system of taking self-responsibility for ourselves, within a monetary system. A monetary system not based on 'everyone for themselves' (as it currently operates), but to create a safe and stable environment for everyone and everything (as all other living beings) – that is possible by enough people taking self-responsibility for who they are and what they participate in.

Freedom, control and responsibility

Money in our current reality is a representation of power through control, and thus freedom through control. To get money – is to have control, power, and freedom. Yet this kind of power, and this kind of freedom is 'not real' and can never be. Because if one looks at it from the perspective of all involved and not only from our own personal perspective – where money = personal power = personal control = personal freedom – it can be seen that there is the other side of the equation. The other side of the equation is controlled through money as well – therefore this kind of power/control/freedom requires someone on the other side that is controlled/powerless/enslaved. 

It’s quite simplistic as the power represented by money in this world isn’t based on responsibility – but on control over another, as we all are controlled and enslaved within this money system through it’s structure. Thus everyone is dependant on money – therefore from the small to the big, from individual lives to big companies – everyone have to adhere to the rules and regulations of and within the money system. And all power require someone to be powerless, someone’s freedom is in expense of someone else’s enslavement, and someone’s ability to control their financial situation is done through someone else being controlled.

Therefore the current manifestation of freedom, power and control that money represents is and always have to be polarized with the opposite of slavery, powerlessness as it requires beings which life is controlled – through how the money system works, because there is no self-responsibility existent within the current equation of what power and freedom is. Therefore instead of freedom – we have personal freedom in expense of another’s enslavement, and instead of responsibility we have government control.

The government has to act in the same way as the parent does. If the children don’t want to or are unable to take responsibility – the parents take responsibility for the children. Now the same applies to the government – if people are not taking responsibility, control is required instead. Thus the points of responsibility and control are very close to one another – as control is required if responsibility isn’t taken by individuals within a group, as in a society where self-responsibility would be taken by all – the control in itself wouldn’t be required as everyone would simply do what is necessary to be done – not because of being afraid or forced to – but because that is what would be understood by the individual that it is what is best for all and for himself as well. Thus self-responsibility would then imply true power and freedom for all equally standing in responsibility – which wouldn’t require control constantly and continuously being exerted just because ‘children’ want to have their conflicts, and want to spite each other – believing it to be freedom, choice or power that they have in this world (as it currently is).

While the actual freedom and power, where all would be free – is only possible through responsibility instead of control. As today's money system is one based on control – and for good reasons, as actual responsibility is required for a real expression of freedom where it wouldn't be polarized and in expense of another's enslavement. But that self-responsibility would come from the understanding of one's own position and placement within and as this world, which can become a real expression of and as self – if everyone would actually be supported and not controlled by the money system. Wherein each one would be aware that he is unconditionally supported, and in such an environment one can choose to support others as an expression of self within reality – wherein one can actually live in dignity through dignifying oneself through supporting and allowing all life to be dignified – which is real freedom. As real freedom is when all are free, as well as true enjoyment can only exist when all are allowed to enjoy themselves.
