A Special Christmas

Happiness, joy, love, peace, family, friends, good food, presents, shopping, relaxing, special feelings, joy joy joy!

Tis the season to be spiteful, Fa la la la la, la la la lah

Why is Christmas centered around consumerism? Is it really necessary for us to buy gifts for eachother so we can fulfill our holiday obligation, or so we can feel 'special' because we gave a gift to someone? Are we really 'special' when the money we use to buy gifts comes from a corrupt system? So the whole reason of why we think we are special is because we have money? Obviously then you cant be special if you don't have money. Hmmm

Do we realize that our temporary 'special' feelings are at the expense the life of the planet and our lives? Isn't fulfilling of Christmas obligations dishonest self-abuse?

There is no denying that the mass consumption of products is destroying the earth. Take a look at all the plastic packaging that ends up in the ocean. Of the gifts you give and receive this year, take an honest look at what percentage you actually need. 1 of 10? 0 of 10?

Christmas is the most elaborate scheme used as a justification for abuse of ourselves and our world. We think of Christmas and we have all kinds of special feelings yet we refuse to see the consequences of what we are doing by not standing up for life. I remember the excitement I used to feel around Christmas, there were fun times of sharing with friends, but the gift giving always felt strange and awkward, though I will not deny I enjoyed getting gifts.

Here I will insert a line of self-forgiveness... I forgive myself for accepting and allowing myself to feel special because of giving to or receiving gifts from people

However I have come to realize that I didn't need 'gifts' from people. Why was my life not supported unconditionally? It appears that we are born into debt. Now I need to 'be a good boy' all year long obeying my parents form of morality trying to pay back my debt to them.. .WTF? Like worship Santa and my parents and family for being so kind and loving for giving me stuff. Oh thank you oh great and invisible Santa. Thou art so kind to choose me over the poor... please.

I realized that me being dependent on someone else to make me feel special is dishonest. I am not special, rather I am equal to everyone. No one is better than me, and I am no better than anyone. Its funny that people fear realizing their equality, 'omg... you mean I'm not special!?.. what, that would mean I'm just a nobody?' Equality means standing for life, as what is the best for everyone including yourself... no secrets, living for real instead of existing as robots enslaved in a system full of fake and insincere people.

Christmas is a good opportunity to investigate ourselves in this self-created religious ritual where we sacrifice ourselves for our false beliefs and selfish desires. Notice that while you can lie to yourself and make yourself believe it for a while, you cannot hide from yourself and will inevitably have no choice but to face yourself as who you have allowed yourself to become. Its time to stop the abuse of life by standing for equality and equal money for all. Here is a jingle exposing what Christmas is really all about...

Oh and btw, if anyone that tells you they love you this Christmas, they are doing it either out of obligation, or because they want to manipulate you into fear and false feeling of comfort, or because they fear having to face themselves and who they really are as equal.

Deck the halls to appear less frightful,

fa la la la la la, la la la lah!

Tis the season to be spiteful,

fa la la la la la, la la la lah!

Don we now our false appearance,

fa la la la la la, la la la lah!

Buy more junk because its on clearance,

fa la la la la la, la la la lah!

See the raging war before us

fa la la la la la, la la la lah!

Rape the ocean chop the forest

fa la la la la la, la la la lah!

Follow god and his delusion

fa la la la la la, la la la lah!

Media spreading mass confusion

fa la la la la la, la la la lah!

Fast away the earth it passes,

fa la la la la la, la la la lah!

Hail the system ye lads and lasses

fa la la la la la, la la la lah!

Drown yourselves in alcohol,

fa la la la la la, la la la lah!

Heedless to the death of all,

fa la la la la la, la la la lah!

No more children trained for Mafia

In Mumbai India, doctors are paid to chop off the healthy arms and legs off hundreds of young children, scores of others have been blinded. The mafia gangs also pour acid on to the children’s bodies, leaving them with suppurating wounds. Crippled children generate more money as tourists sympathize with the children.

This practice was vaguely portrayed in the movie Slumdog Millionaire. Yet the situation is far worse that what was depicted in the movie.

"Complaints to the police are pointless. With the beggar mafia making more than £20 million a year in Mumbai alone, corrupt officers ensure that the trade thrives. According to official figures, as many as 44,000 children fall into the clutches of the beggar mafia in India each year and of these, hundreds are deliberately mutilated.

However, some charities say that the figure could be as high as a million. Most of the victims are under ten. ‘They are taught the most appropriate place to beg, the kind of people one should approach, and the kind of mannerisms that would make people sympathize,’ says Mufti Imran, a researcher with Save the Children"

Not all the ‘disappeared’ children are maimed or turned into beggars. But all face a truly grim future. According to human rights groups, some are forced into child pornography and used as sex slaves. Others are killed and have their organs sold to wealthy Indians.

Obviously this practice is savage and cruel, yet we have made it 'acceptable' by allowing a capitalistic system to exist. How is anyone able to say capitalism is acceptable when this is the direct consequence?

Living in self-interest, we are only concerned for our own well being and that of our families. So the root of the problem is us who have money, and in us not standing up to stop it, we are equally responsible as those who perform these acts of violence.

How would you feel if your limbs were amputated as a child so you could make money for gangs? Many will say 'oh its just the way the system works, you can't change it'. That is seditious and unacceptable. The solution is simple, an Equal Money System would stop all abuse and no longer allow such horrifying practices to continue.

Are we aware of these atrocities going on in our world? Multitudes of other disgraceful torture is currently happening that is not seen or reported in our world because of the acceptance of capitalism. This capitalist system is the destroyer of life. How much suffering will we allow before we say Enough already! Stand up and support a dignified life for all. Equal Money for All.

Art in an Equal Money System

Art is a reflection of us. It can be used as an introspective tool for us to see who we are, and it can show us a great deal about ourselves. Lets pose the question - Why do we judge artwork as 'good/beautiful' or 'bad/ugly', often classifying Art into categories and definitions?

Interestingly, we base our judgements and opinions on how much feeling we derive from the Art... This is purely self-interest and ego, seeing from our limited bubble of reality. But there is another subtle principle to observe. We often secretly judge Art based on how much work or effort went into creating the Art.

What does this show us about ourselves and our values? We apparently give great value to hard work, regardless of our ignorance and inability to see the starting point - what was the motivation behind all the hard work? Does it support or suppress life as a whole?

Consider this. How is a person able to do art, unless they have enough money and support to do so? Is a 'great Artist' really that great if one has all the time they want to just focus on Art? Who supported the artist in daily life, and why do they not get equal credit for the Artwork? And who supported the person who supported that person, and why do they also not get equal credit? This goes on and on infinitely.

The real question is, what right do we have to give any credit whatsoever? Why do we value Artistic expression, as if there is some talent, when the real factors involved are money and time only allotted to us by way of an abusive money system. Not to mention that our values are completely deluded from a point of judging one another based on false beliefs and self-interest.

When we stop judging and giving credit to Artists, we can see Art for what it really is, an expression of self as all. Furthermore, when we implement an Equal Money System, Art will take on a whole new and profound significance. People will see Art in a whole new way, and be able to open up to new expressions, not based in, or motivated by self-interest, but rather unconditional self-expression. Without valuation, everyone will have equal opportunity to express themselves Artistically. This way, the credit system is removed and Art becomes a gift of self available to all.

Lets remove the limitations we put on ourselves in Art and make it something that is equal to ourselves as life without limitation. Check out
