|The Current Global Financial Crisis froma Spiritual Perspective||11/28/08|
The financial crisis is excellent news for our collective growth and evolution as a speciesLou Bognon
We are powerful creators of our realities and now we are facing one of the most interesting of our creations: the global financial crisis, even if most of us will disown the idea of having had anything to do with it in the first place. From a spiritual perspective, the financial crisis is excellent news for our collective growth and evolution as a species.
We are indeed powerful creators of our realities. And, now we are facing one of the most interesting of our creations: the global financial crisis, even if most of us will disown the idea of having had anything to do with it in the first place.
From a spiritual perspective of course, the financial crisis is excellent news for our collective growth and evolution as a species.
Perhaps now - that we no longer can afford be so focused on "things" and how many of them our money can buy after having created this new reality of lack in the money supply - we will start tapping into our inner world and relate to each other in more profound and meaningful ways. After all, we have been flirting long enough with the surface of things, through the stuff we wear, buy, give, receive, consume, waste, tuck and throw away.
I cannot help but refer to my third book, The Divine Laws, where we are informed of the soon to come time of "crumbling" when all systems that no longer function for the greatest good of all will disintegrate before our eyes and we will be inundated with obsolete staff that no longer serve any purpose.
As I drive along the many highways of Johannesburg, I cannot help noticing how the big SUV's (sports utility vehicles) are starting to look (at least to me) more and more like "FUV's" (funerary utility vehicles). Personally, I have nothing against such vehicles per se - when and where they serve their purpose in farms and rural areas where most roads really need the gifts of a 4x4.
This observation aside, what we are watching is just not the beginning of the "crumbling" but a confirmation and a consolidation of the new reality [the transition to the 5th World] that informs us that things cannot stay as they are and so it is that we have created, collectively, crisis after crisis to come to this important point.
As the European leaders met in China to discuss this financial crisis and try to persuade the Chinese to part with some of the many trillions of their hard-earned savings as a direct result of their hard labour and multi-factory production in their heartland, it was ironic to actually witness the death of capitalism just as taught by Marx, Engels and Lenin, namely: "for capitalism to die all that was needed was to give it enough rope so that it would hang itself".
And so it came to pass that capitalism hanged itself in the great hall of China's communist party as China listened to its request for help and replied using more of the same rope and more of the same capitalist rhetoric as we have been hearing from all capitalist capitals: -- let the IMF become even more powerful and involved.
Given China's astronomical reserves in US dollars, it begs this pertinent question: How long will they hold on to the tons of paper and bonds and therefore how long and/or what will take for them to "suicide the dollar" all together? Time alone will tell. This is a potential reality already inscribed in the many future probabilities and the global shift of power to the east, predicted by Chinese visionaries a very long time ago, even before the rise (and the fall) of communism.
And so it is that we are now faced with a reality where we all need to face -- how obsessed we have become with buying, collecting, showing-off and even classifying each other by the amount and size of the outward staff. This has bred so much fear (of not having and being enough) so much injustice, greed, insecurity and misery that it is only normal that the frenzy sooner or later, had to come to an end.
And this is where we are at present. The least affected are those who remained somewhat awake through this creation and therefore did not engage the illusion or the frenzy. The more affected are those still trapped in the victim role. Too late though, to blame stock exchanges, banks, politicians, policies or conspiracies.
This is the time to create anew. This is a time to learn to let go of any idea of a savior and a fixer -- we are indeed the ones we have been waiting for all along -- and it is time for this new reality to sink in. No politician and no economist (certainly not of the type we have been accustomed to anyway), will make any difference -- we need to start taking our lives into our own hands and soon realize that the less we rely on the crumbling systems the better off we will be.
In closing I am reminded to quote the words made famous by Jimmy Hendrix: "When the Power of Love will overcome the love of power - we will be OK."
This applies to America, Zimbabwe, South Africa, Canada, and every single country on Earth, as the Power of Love has nowhere, as yet, overcome the love of power. But we could create this reality [the 5th World]. Now! Who we really are, our true spiritual identity -- can indeed -- create anything at all.
