Movement, Water, Radioactivity….etc…
Heady weekend and week coming up. And look at the week just past, eh?
Osama, Obama, Silver, Fukushima getting worse, Tornadoes of the century in the American south, a royal wedding, blasting a leevee in Memphis (When the Levee Breaks… remember Led Zep? “When the Levee Breaks” is a blues song written and first recorded by husband and wife Kansas Joe McCoy and Memphis Minnie in 1929. The song is in reaction to the upheaval caused by the Great Mississippi Flood of 1927.). Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm…….
Of course, the financial world continues it’s tumble into the abyss. The fiat currency experiment is at it’s end, never had more than a 40 year (ish) span, through recorded history. Talk about a predictable half-life of a truly radioactive and dangerous creation, eh?
Every day brings a newsflash that makes you go hmmmmmm, what is it they are trying to cover? What’s the other hand doing?
So much killing in the news. Human life has lost it’s value the world over.
And you know why? Really, ponder this and you will understand a big part of our current condition.
In this current, money-mad paradigm in which we live, human life is ‘priced”, not “valued”. Especially since the full blown metastasis of Capitalism into the global cancer that it is….
You are only as valuable as your “Producing Power” (PP) and your “Consuming Power” (CP).
You (Price) = PP + CP
In the west, in the boom years, PP and CP were high, probably throughout the booming west. So life had a high price. Now, CP is crashing and PP is dwindling, so western life is worth not so much. It’s obvious in the media, in their dealing with deaths through wars….murders…it’s pretty obvious, without NUMBers.
In the Developing east, PP and CP were very low till the last 15 years. Now you can analyze any country and imagine what the PP and CP of it’s citizens will be to Corporations. That will give you sign of how you will find them being treated by their representatives in your respective nations. By the Law, by Politics, By judiciary…. it really is as simple as that.
Because India has seen a disproportionate jump in both PP and CP of a credit-pumped middle class, the fastest growing businesses in India are hospitals and pharmaceuticals. And pain and sleep clinics and gymnasiums and ‘beauty parlours for ladeez and Giants”.
Suddenly, an Indian life has more price. Afghanistan, not so much. Pakistan not so much. Iraq, not so much.
See how it goes?
If one can face that fully, helping bring this dystopian monster down becomes that much easier.
And forget about anyone except those who love you actually “Valuing” your life. Very good to understand the difference between price and value here. It is the dynamic that runs 95% of the world’s populations lives.
And so, the juggernaut that wants to eat everything rolls on.
Fukushima is still leaking. The only thing they have stemmed the leakage in is truth. Same as Deepwater Horizon.
I could go on and on, but you get the picture.
Such a wind-up week is going to have some week following eh?
I say batten the hatches or just break free. It is that kind of time right now. Not a time to think linearly.
Pay attention all the time. You can be attentive in a relaxed way you know? Don’t be shocked or thrown off or go ballistic or any such thing.
Just watch. And find your own center.
Because when the shake comes (and it’s coming for sure), only those who are balanced as they are will react wisely. Not heroically or anything. Wisely.
My creative project is coming along nicely. A sneak peek next week here. 😉
Glad I’ll be releasing what I’m doing in such a potent time.
