In my work as a general contractor/handyman, I assist people wanting to renovate their homes. I enjoy building things which is why I got into construction. However, there are some realities in this trade which I have become more aware of over the past few years. I would like to post about this to share my perspective.
Firstly, I would like to say, that I don't have a lot of money at this point, and I would really like to stop what I am doing, but I need money to support myself in this world. The enjoyment of construction has become less and less, due to the nature of this business. That being of renovating peoples homes for the sake of appearances.
What do I mean by 'appearances'. Not helping people for practical living, but helping people look 'good' as in, making the mask look better. To give an example, a lady asked me to demolish some tile - perfectly good floor tile - so she could replace it with a different color. This kind of thing amazes me. To me, this is evidence that our lives are so pathetic, that we are actually concerned with the color of our floors. There is so much to explore and experience within ourselves, yet, we are worried about the color of our floors. Many people dont even have homes, yet we are adamant about our renovations to make ourselves appear better. God for bid your floor is dirty. Seriously.
Others ask me to demolish and/or trash perfectly good and useful materials such as lights, sinks, toilets, counters, accessories etc. Why? Because it doesn't visually appeal to them. Or sometimes they would like to sell their house for a higher price.
This reflects how separated we are from ourselves as the physical reality. We have become so self-centered, wasteful and blind in our world, that we don't even realize what we are doing and the effects we are having.
There is a solution that will solve everything fortunately that will be implemented soon. That is Equal Money for All. That will solve everything from war, to cancer, to starvation, to poverty, to pollution to child abuse to child trafficking to slave labor - you name it. In an Equal Money System everyone has equal responsibility in the world to do what is best for all.
Im sure we are all sick of this corporate run, capitalistic, diabolical, pollution ridden and war ravaged world on the verge of annihilating humanity. Equal Money is the manifestation of heaven on earth. This is our only home so its time to stand up and support a system that actually supports life. No more ego. No more excuses. Lets just get it done.
