There is nothing wrong with money, per se. It can be a great medium of exchange in the right hands. Or a tool of control in the wrong hands.
Never the less, money is not the source of wealth…
You Are SOURCE!
If that is a true statement, why are so many people living in poverty?
Is it possible we are a slave planet, and we don’t even know it?
Many planets apparently follow this evolutionary model:
STAGE 1: A “fresh” planet has new beings living in decentralized groups, with no hierarchies or networks, just like we did a few thousand years ago. Hunter gatherers, and so on. Simple tribes, evolving.
STAGE 2: At some point, these groups are unified, centralized, and hierarchies form. An elite and non-elite structure comes up. Tools of governance and trade are created. Monetary systems are such a tool, created both for trade, but even more importantly, for control and governance. Monetary systems are as much a governance tool as they are an exchange tool. Money by itself is just an exchange tool, with no governance built-in. Pure exchange. But once it is set up as a privately-owned debt-based monetary system, it becomes a governance and control tool. That is the difference. At some point in the past, people used gold, silver, cowrie shells, and so on, as money. No private entity owned that type of money, and it was not based on debt, either. It was for pure exchange. It was decentralized, autonomous money, meaning no central authority owned it’s issuance. If you had gold, silver or cowrie shells, from wherever you got them, you had money. That money was not branded or owned by a central authority. Gold is gold, silver is silver, shells are shells – no one has a monopoly in “creating” them. There is no Federal Reserve of Shells with exclusive rights to make shells for the whole world. And so money of that type was a simple medium of exchange. At some point, someone got rid of that decentralized, autonomous system, and introduced their own brand of money, a privately-owned debt-based monetary system. A centralized, proprietary monetary system. That is when money became a governance and control tool. The slave planet stage had arrived. On Earth, this system is primarily owned and controlled worldwide by the Fed Reserve, upon which most other currencies are pegged. And Earth is not the only planet to enter this stage.
STAGE 3: Now, over time, as consciousness evolves, it reaches a point where it outgrows these earlier structures. It’s population awakens. They start to have a new self-view and a new world-view. They achieve new understandings. It becomes a Graduate Planet. Society decentralized again, but on a higher level of understanding. They achieve unity within diversity. And they achieve unity with the planet itself. With this new consciousness, everything changes. One of the things that change is that they unshackle themselves from the slave planet stage. Eventually, the planet is able to blossom without having any monetary system at all. Money eventually disappears completely from society. Yet the society blossoms. In the first step, resources combined with technology and planetary unity replace money. A resource-based economy replaces a monetary-based economy. Here, technology and sharing replace competition and money. The friction and shortages and waste that monetary systems create are eliminated, and that is why society blossoms. In the second step, which happens many, many, many generations after the first step is completed, even technology itself is replaced, and consciousness itself becomes the direct Source of abundance without the need for technology. The human evolves to a point where they are in alliance with matter, and can directly manipulate matter as needed, without the aid of technology.
Money Is Simply A Store Of Value And A Medium Of Exchange.
“Banking is necessary; banks are not. We need banking but we don’t need banks anymore… Banks are dinosaurs, they can be bypassed.” – Bill Gates
As long as people keep looking externally for wealth, the privately-owned “Babylonian Money-Magic Slave System” will be back again and again and again, in different guises…
The “Modern” System Of Creating Currency Out Of Debt Out Of Thin Air By Private Individuals Has It’s Roots In Ancient Sumeria And Babylon As Early As 2,270 BC
Law No. 7 of the Great Hammurabi is evidence of the knowledge and previous existence of the corruptive practice of issuing false receipts/currency supposedly against silver or gold held in safe-keeping. Law No. 7 was created to prevent this practice, and its penalty was death.
The Babylonian Money Magic Slave System is usually introduced into a population either forcefully by military might, or by trickery and sleight of hand, or both, using facilities such as The Economic Hitmen (EHMs) and legislation.
There is nothing “modern” or “natural” or “required” about it.
It is not a source of wealth; it is a system of governance of the masses by a private few.
It was built to transfer real wealth, real time, real assets, real power, real labour, real freedom… from you to it’s owners, in exchange for worthless paper.
That is why it was built. Not to serve you; but to serve them, the private owners of this system.
Without you agreeing collectively to it, they don’t have that power!
For from the creation of credit out of nothing and issuing it to you via a “game of confidence”, their wealth, freedom, power and control is produced.
Plus, there is never enough money in circulation as there is debt, hence scarcity is in-built, scarcity becomes the order of the day under this system, a false sense of scarcity created to generate control and limitation.
They take your real wealth (time and freedom)…
in exchange for fiat currency (papers and computer numbers),…
and don’t give you any real money (gold and silver).
This type of system is a System of Governance; it is not a source of wealth.
You are the Wealth, You Are Source!
Money is a medium of exchange and a store of value IF the system it serves is built properly.
Can you see this?
Not all monetary systems are the same!
Some uplift and bless… Some kill!
And to understand where money comes from, you must understand that:
1. there is a difference between wealth and money
2. money must represent both of two things
Let’s take a look…
Wealth comes from people and nature.
Money comes from monetary systems…
To make enough money to enjoy sufficiency and safeguard your true wealth, which is your time, health and freedom, you first need to understand where money comes from.
And to understand where money comes from, you must understand that money must represent these two things:
If you labour under a monetary system that represents the wrong “something” and “someone”, you will actually experience slavery and scarcity, not wealth and freedom.
There are several types of monetary systems that can be created, to serve various SOMEONES and issue various SOMETHINGS as follows…
The SOMEONE: The monetary system can be owned and controlled by either one of these:
- A government and it’s public population
- A private monopoly of individuals
- Decentralized and autonomous (like bitcoin and other crypto-currencies)
The SOMETHING: The monetary system can issue either one of these:
- Debt-based currency
- Asset-based money
- Productivity-based receipts
- In a system where the public (or nature itself) owns the issuance of asset-based or productivity-based money, 98% of the population can achieve true freedom, sufficiency and abundance. The SOMEONE is the public, the SOMETHING is assets or productivity. However, this is not the system the world is currently using.
- The world is currently on, believe it or not, predominantly debt-based currency, issued by privately-owned banks. Under this system, 98% of people on the planet can NEVER truly be free, no matter how hard they try, because the SOMEONE is a private monopoly, and the SOMETHING is debt. That is the root cause of the financial trouble the world is in now. And now, we begin to unravel the puzzle…
You now heard of the Babylonian Money Magic Slave System.
It’s the system where:
- Private individuals give you and the public worthless paper (fiat currency based on debt)…
- …In exchange for your real wealth (your time, freedom and hard assets)…
- …And set it up legally and structurally so that it is the “only way” to live…
- And then confuse and deceive you so you forget there are many other healthy, abundant and liberating ways to live.
The current system is not an abundance-creation system, it is an enslavement and control system, serfdom. Watch this movie, THRIVE, from minute 52:22 to 65:20, for a great summary on how this system enslaves you and the planet.
The Earth Has Enough Resources To Solve Most Human Problems
Unfortunately, privately-issued money and politics are an interference, not an enabler, because they limit our ability and limit our dreams.
Imagine the possibilities of an unprecedented mobilization of scientific and technical alliances toward problem-solving, without the interference of privately-issued money or politics.
A mobilization to initiate global unification and restoration. A total, global, systems-approach to our challenges.
This could easily enable a high standard of living for all mankind.
And it can be done, if we, the people of the Earth, say so.
We, the United People of Earth, are the One True Superpower, all of us.
United we Stand, divided we fall.
And it starts with the desire, the intention, to be so.
Don’t buy into the lie that it will never happen.
Do your part by making up your mind, your positive desire for it, your supporting intention for it.

How Digital Currency Will Change The World
In the transition from a privately-owned monetary system economy (which is what we have now) to a resource based economy, we will most probably need to go through a phase whereby we still use money, but this money is no longer issued by a monetary system that is owned by private individuals.
Such a system would be based, as the videos have shown above, on de-centralized, autonomous cryptocurrencies (e.g. Bitcoin, but better). Pure, digital currencies. Not US dollars in computer form, no. But pure digital currencies built from the ground up as decentralized, autonomous cryptocurrencies.
But how much better is than the money we use now?
The answer to that is best explained in this article entitled How Digital Currency Will Change The World, by Brian Armstrong.
It says, “Digital currency may be the most effective way the world has ever seen to increase economic freedom. If this happens, the implications are profound. It could lift many countries out of poverty, improve the lives of billions of people, and accelerate the pace of innovation in the world.”
It goes on to say…
”This is how digital currency enables economic freedom:
- It makes it easier to start a business. Anyone with an idea can have customers around the world in just a few hours. It reduces the friction of accepting payments, and helps companies expand globally.
- It enforces property rights. Many people today are unable to safely store wealth without it being stolen or confiscated. Digital currency will allow anyone to be in control of their own money (see brain wallets). In this sense, digital currency will “bank” the unbanked of the world.
- It promotes free trade and globalization. Digital currency excels at cross border transfers. It breaks down barriers for people in different countries to trade with each other (for example to get a loan, or hire someone to complete a job).
- It enables freedom of contract. With Ethereum smart contracts, the hurdle has been lowered for people to enter agreements, regardless of where they live or whether they can afford a lawyer.
- It encourages people to leave low scoring countries. People will find it easier to emigrate if they can take their wealth with them and use it in a neighboring country. Digital currency makes every country’s economy interoperable. With lower switching costs, countries will improve.
- It reduces corruption and bribery. With fewer gatekeepers and intermediaries to start a business, there won’t be as many places to apply pressure or curry favor.
- It provides access to stable currency. Digital currencies are more volatile than the dollar or euro today, but their volatility has decreased every year (and are now approaching the levels of some fiat currencies). In the coming years, digital currency will be more stable than many of the 180+ fiat currencies in the world.”
Perhaps my personal favorite in Brian’s article is where he demonstrates the difference between analog currencies (all our national currencies are analog) and digital currencies, by using the digital photography analogy, whereby he says, “Today, digital currency is still in early stages. But as with many technologies, when it tips the result can be dramatic.”
IMPORTANT: We are not implying that the world should use Bitcoin. Not at all. Bitcoin is used just as an example. Newer and better decentralized cryptocurrencies can now be created that address the shortcomings of Bitcoin.
Meanwhile, Greece Leads The Way In Creating New Community Currencies
As you would have seen on the news, Greece was recently hit hard economically. Businesses had to shut down. And then something interesting happened.
Someone figured out that, although the currency was screwed:
- The same businesses were still there, able to do what they did before the currency crash
- The same people lived in the towns, with the same needs
- Everything else remained the same, except the currency!
So they decided to not wait for the currency to recover. They decided to carry on, despite the currency.
By making their own! A barter system, digitally managed.
And since then, those closed businesses revived, the towns picked up, and the good days are on the way back! Watch this BBC clip:
You can read and watch more about it here:
And here is another interesting video of the same:
That is just a small example, to demonstrate that there are many, many ways to get things done. Private-bank issued fiat currencies are not the only way.
