Sorry, I want to apologize in advance. This one is more of a spew of thoughts than the last post. Maybe I've passed the threshold of awakeness for writing.

Civilization has changed so much throughout the years. Let's talk about in general and not worry too much about locations, races or any of that other stuff.

These days we run on a capitalist system. This post isn't to cover the politics or economics of it though. In the old days things were different for many. People bartered and traded. There were hunters, fishers, gatherers & agriculturists who provided the food. Then there were healers, crafters and other assorted professions.

Things were much more simple, everyone was much more free and in general I would like to say the majority were much happier. Now with so much food available, so many different types of food available and people aren't as happy. People aren't nearly as free and arguably people aren't even eating their fair share of the food. Speaking as a whole that is. So many people are in poverty and the ones that do not have money do not have enough food.

Look at the jobs we have today. People push papers and boss others around. People do jobs that machines can do easily. At least for the most part restaurants and any cashier job and even taxi cabs and other transport. I'm sure there are plenty more things that we can have machines do for us if we weren't worried about creating jobs.

We need to shift around somehow and compeltely change our economy. We have too much technology at this point and there isn't much reason not to take advantage of it.

I guess what I'm really trying to say with all this is that I want to see different groups of people at the top. Not bankers, lawyers, accountants, CEOs and all that nonsense. Those aren't real jobs. Cut out electric or even just telecommunication and these guys will commit suicide because they are useless.

That's another problem. So many people today, myself included, cannot survive without all this technology. Very, very few people have organic seeds, space and know how to grow their own food. There is also very little knowledge of natural medicine. We've changed the environment so much that all the plantlife and every other animal is changing. We depend on those more than you might realize. We are getting overrun with pests and trees are not regressing and blooming at the right time and that's throwing off temperatures too.

But as I was saying. I think we need to put healers back up at the top. Not just doctors and surgens and all the modern Western types but traditional healers as well. Activists, artists, engineers, writers, and religious/spiritual figures need to be taken care of better. Obviously I'm including everyone who can provide food here too.

We should abolish capitalism and go back to trading and bartering and work more as volunteers to keep the community goes. We can start now by looking into Intentional Communities (AKA ecoviliages or communes). Also check out The Venus Project as they've got some very interesting ideas. I'm not talking about trying to create some sort of utopia here, just flip things around a little and take care of those who keep our society together, hold them in high regard. I mean, look at all the bloggers and website owners and major forum posters! How life changing are some of those things you read? (Excluding the memes...)


Oh. I didn't even actually say what I started out with the intention of writing! I'm a healer. I do Reiki which uses the energy of the Universe and helps realign the chakras. I'm also experimenting with other forms of energy healing. I always use herbs when I need something. Oils too. Crystals are a part of my every day life. I also write in here and other places on the Internet. I'm trying to educate everyone. Wake people up and save the world. I go out and protest. I actively boycott. I sign petitions. I pass all this information along, sticking it into every conversation I can. I'm passionate about my beliefs.

I'm a leader of some communities online. These, when taken care of can be very important even if it's just a game. Since it involves so many other people it's important for everyone to do their part because that's the necessary escape, the bit of fun and social interation that we need right there. Sure, there are alternatives but why settle for something else? And just beacause a community is online does not mean it's any less important outside the Internet. More and more of the world is dependent on the Internet and the content on it.

I don't ever want a "regular job." I've had those and I was miserable and those were the least productive times in my life. I did not grow at all. I did nothing except work and hate me job. I had some money, sure, but when you're working all the time you don't really get to spend that money. When you're busy all the time you don't get to do the things you enjoy. You don't get to learn anything. You don't have a change to protest anything and have a say in what's going on in the world. That's exactly the point of it all. We're not supposed to. We're supposed to be zombies, pawns for the tyrants.

After growing up and deciding exactly who I am and what I stand for and supporting only what I wish to support I cannot turn my back on all of that and go work for some company I hate who does things I do not agree with. I just can't. I'll be dead inside. I'd rather be dead on the outside if that's what it came down to. So. I'm trying to use the skills and abilities I have to get by. It's difficult but it's worth it. I can do what I want, when I want and where I want. Freedom.


I think that was all. I'm exhausted. Maybe one day I'll revise this more coherently but probably not. Haha.


What's important to you?
What do you do? What would you like to do with your life?
Principles or money?
