Money. Conclusion.

picturedJune 14, 2013 by Jerry Alatalo

Love, compassion and understanding reveals that suffering can end with very little resources. A sharing world has come.

Consider the economic examples given by Scandinavian countries like Finland, Norway, Sweden and Denmark. These people have high taxes but prevent politicians from lowering them as they experience solidarity, high academic achievement, low poverty, national healthcare and satisfactory living. The people in these countries have the highest standards of living on Earth and would not choose any other system.

The tide has turned as the secrets can no longer be kept away from the people. The economies of each country and the world have suffered manipulating by robber barons. Bankers have taken advantage of their customers with nothing short of thievery. Corporations gain more power with men and women going into the government sector, back into the corporate sector, etc., etc. A few wealthy families benefit while the rest of the population suffers.

One half of the world’s population lives below the poverty level. Many in America hold the belief that America with foreign aid has always been an altruistic nation. It is not total altruism. The money and aid go for the most part to American corporations and a few wealthy families in the recipient country. The supposed original intent of the aid to help the people of the recipient country is a fraud. You will not find any real investigative reporters on any of the major media to report these frauds. Laws have been influenced and sometimes written by the 35,000 corporate lobbyists.

There are a small number of people on the planet who have one goal, maximizing profits, without regard to consequences for the world’s people and environment. There are thankfully business leaders becoming concerned for the health and well-being of people and the environment. We shall see this trend continue. Over a trillion dollars gets spent every year for militaries and preparation for war and killing. There are solutions available to create a better world. Thankfully these solutions are shared by the people of the world through the worldwide web.

World consciousness and awareness are rising. Every person on Earth is facing the same economic crises, environmental degradation and climate chaos. It is a revolutionary time which is resulting in real human transformation. Leaders involved with greed, manipulation and brutality have handed the reins of power to leaders whose tools are love, compassion and peace. We are realizing that current leaders, especially those of the old way of thinking, cannot be trusted to bring about the real changes needed to create the world people want.

It is time to concentrate on positive and possible solutions to these obviously solvable human problems. Disinformation weapons fail with the new technologies of social media, the internet and smart-phones. Five corporations control the major media but these new technologies have overcome that control. Humanity will solve the poor’s problems  through coöperation and help with farming, fishing and water issues – basic survival methods.

There has been enough spending on bombs, missiles, tanks and fighter jets. Time to end the desperate living conditions of our world’s starving and poor. Let us begin by paying corporations to help the poor of the planet to grow their own food. Reject powerlessness and fear and the positive, possible changes we seek for humanity will become inevitable. There are so many solutions.

It is time to take away the power from private central banks in the form of the Federal Reserve of the United States,  the World Bank, International Monetary Fund and the Bank for International Settlements. There will be no more taking advantage of our fellow members of the human family for personal gain and self-aggrandizement. That historical model is over. Humanity has seen enough. The historical rule of ego thankfully is disappearing. The new model of the rule of spirit is now thankfully being created.

Very few people control the money and wealth of the world. The suffering and misery experienced by our human family for hundreds of years has resulted in wealth going into the hands of these few. Now is the time for the reversal of this insidious human system. What we are talking about is basic fairness, justice and concern for our fellow-man. What we are talking about is Jesus’ commandment, “Love one another as I have loved you.”

All of the suffering that humanity has experienced throughout history is finally going to end. War, hunger, poverty, disease, hate, greed, envy and misery are going to be things of the past. Humanity is finally going to break the chains of ego slavery and experience true spiritual freedom. The human race is coming to the realization that we all are one. Imagine and believe in the glorious future that awaits us.

Get active with your actions being in harmony for humanity to win. When the people rise and make the changes necessary humanity will win. Believe a better world is possible and take the actions to make it happen. The human race created the money problems with their unfortunate consequences. The human race can fix these problems. Never doubt your ability to improve the situation in your country as well as your world. Never get discouraged.  As the human race unites as one a better world comes into view.

Future generations of humanity will point back to this time and know that this generation was the one. This generation was the one which took the actions necessary for creating an everlasting heaven on Earth. This generation was the one which understood the spiritual philosophy of seven generations. We are the generation which took the present and future into our own hands and created  paradise on Earth. This generation will forever be known as the one where the awe-inspiring magnificent events took place; the events which changed everything for  humanity forever.

This generation will create the systems which distribute Mother Earth’s abundance to all for the welfare of all. Not one single human being will be left out. There will be no more turning away from those who are struggling for survival. We have created the systems of inequality. Now the systems of equality appear which will forever be understood as the best we could create. Infinite love will be the source of energy used in the Creation of these systems. Humanity will be happy to have created with infinite love and reaching for our highest potential on Earth.

Utopia is an ideally perfect place, especially in its social, political and moral aspects. A world created with love as its basis could not be described as anything but heaven. Creating heaven on Earth is the reason we as souls came to the physical realm. Our evolution as immortal souls includes understanding the truth of unconditional love and that awareness being communicated to all. When the awareness is felt by all then creating a love based physical reality begins.

We will know that we decided in favor of love because it was the only choice we could sanely make. All of our actions from that point will start with love. We will have reached the point in physical reality where beyond which it is impossible to go. Thy will be done, on Earth as it is in heaven.

Many have come before this writer and many will come after who have spoken on these things in a more articulate manner. Many of you have come across writings, music, film, speeches, art and other forms of communications that have profoundly moved you. We all are eternally grateful for the men and women who created these works. We simply pray that this effort results in positive consequences for all. Some will find the ideas shared as utopian, pie-in-the-sky or impossible. Perhaps the dream seems difficult but what is difficult about choosing love? Humanity will rise as high as possible. Perhaps this begs the question. What is humanly possible?

This generation will answer the question. Is your life all about you, or is it all about your fellow-man? This generation will answer emphatically and collectively it is all about our fellow-man. All will know that love is the only truth and that everything else is an illusion. We will understand that we are all forever beings and that nothing ever ends. With this level of spiritual understanding all human activity will change. Reality will be lifted to the higher planes of love.

Is this the truth of reality? We shall see. Humanity will find the way. Humanity will create a new world and it will be good.


Hit Me! Remembering Ken Kesey.

For whatever reason the image of the Danny DeVito character in “One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest” came to mind. Those of you who have watched the movie remember the scene where the inmates of the institution were in their weekly poker game, and the DeVito character fell in love with saying “hit me!”

One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest is the name that the writer of the book, Ken Kesey, gave to the big Native American man, the Chief Bromden character in the film. It is the Chief’s story. It is a name that is Native American like Dances With Wolves. The DeVito character could have an Indian name like One Who Likes To Be Hit. I believe that Kesey was trying to create and to give us an image of life as seen through Native American eyes. He accomplished it.

This One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest tangent originated with the thought of what we call in the blogosphere “hits”. As the thought of hits entered,  simultaneously the image of Danny DeVito sitting in at the card table entered. A short post on one of the finest films ever created.

Ken Kesey’s creative effort, his writing of Cuckoo’s Nest, led to the film adaptation and eventually a well deserved Academy Award for Best Picture of the year. Jack Nicholson won for best actor. Louise Fletcher won for best actress in her portrayal of Nurse Ratched. Milos Forman won for best director. That Nicholson and Louise Fletcher would star in this movie says something about their artistry. The same credit for artistry is deserved by director Milos Forman. The same credit for artistry is deserved by rest of the actors and actresses who appeared. All those who played a part.

The cast was what I believe we call a tour de force. The picture was a masterpiece which was all about human freedom, and a universal story. For those of you who have viewed the film you understand Ken Kesey’s writing power. For those novel writers who have yet to view the film please do as you will recognize your potential more fully.

This writer has yet to attempt fiction but if that time comes I hope that I am able to create a work which matches the power that Ken Kesey displayed in Cuckoo’s Nest. His creation of a scenario which takes place at a mental institution and touches on all of our human concerns in the process was pure genius. His experiences around real mental health facilities and conversations with patients were invaluable to his writing of the book.

Ken Kesey was disappointed that the film did not use the voice of the large Native American character, Chief Bromsted, to narrate the film as was the case in his book. But he was pleased overall with the final production of the film.

Ken Kesey’s greatest gift to humanity was One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest, his profound reminder that our personal experiences are far more powerful than we are fully aware of. His use of seemingly unimportant people and mundane activities in such a setting to unveil universal truths deserves all the honor and respect a true artist has earned.

Thank you Ken Kesey (1935-2001).
