So Many Good Things are Happening!

In the circles I run in so many people are excited about the positive changes that are happening.

It might look like it’s really negative, but the sentiment is that the negative is past its peak and the positive is on the upturn….massively.

I want to put this out there so you can feed off this vibration…and help the parabolic rise!!!

Don’t take this as, “Wow, everything is going to get better. I can sit back and watch the negative collapse, and the positive create.” It’s more like I need this positive message to renew my resolve to change, to realize that I am Loved, can Love Myself and keep moving forward.

Even if the positive is evident, and you don’t do anything, you will miss out on its effects. You can just sit and watch it…watch it run right by you!

This is a free choice reality. It’s your choice to create what you want. It will be easier in the near future, but only if you are prepared.

That’s what I do, help you prepare…to survive the current situation and thrive in the next one!

Cooperative Networks…Why They Already Work!

So the question that you may have, as I have had for the past 2 years, is how will all this will work?

You want peace, security, safety, health, food and abundance!

These are the things I think you want, because they are what I want. You might use different words, but you project what you want onto others as well! Since all of these things are not detrimental to me, or you, there is a commonality between us. We have a shared view of this world, and a common purpose. It does not include taking your stuff or you taking mine.

I call this “built-in” cooperation.

This subject is huge…and deep, but let’s just keep it on this level. I have discussed some of the deeper parts in other posts.

We all cooperate in the majority of our lives. We drive on the “correct” side of the road. We have jobs. We raise families. We have friends, and other examples.

The only time we don’t cooperate is when we don’t agree, which is only a small part of our lives.

Let’s think about ways we can cooperate more.

We could form networks where we exchange services, information, and food with each other.

Everyone has something to contribute. It would work better with people we agree with, on most things. It helps with disagreements and offense.

Offense is the greatest problem we have. We would rather disconnect than deal with the emotions and conflict. But we cooperate at work, at home, with family because we think we “must.” We have an investment in them, so we stick it out, even being offended, frustrated and angry.

If we can realize that if we don’t cooperate our lives will not be as full, and actually jeopardize our future. We need to cooperate to have a backup just in case…

We will never make it on our own. It doesn’t have to be the “end of the world.” It could be just a short term loss of food or energy.

More importantly, learning how to get along with people will benefit every area of our lives. Job promotions and success in business are many times based on our “people skills.”

You have to realize that you benefit from cooperating as much as the next person. In fact, there is no cooperation without both parties thinking they got what they wanted.

It’s that simple.

So what are you giving up? I would say it’s your right to get offended and not do anything about it. It’s also your distorted world view that everything will be OK. It’s like a dystopian, utopian delusion. You want to be left alone, but you need to be realistic, and realize interaction is necessary and that results in conflict.

So learn how to deal with Conflict! 

What about more concrete things, like food. Sustainable permaculture systems with a 40 year track record are readily available,

There is technology to make potable water that work cheaply.

There are many ways to generate power locally on a small scale basis including wind, solar, biogas and hydro-turbines.

There are proven building systems that use mainly local resources and are very cost and energy efficient.

Now add in the Cooperative Network aspect. You have the help and security of other people.

You might say, “Well that will take too much time.” How about you reduce your food, energy and housing costs by participating in their production so you don’t need to spend 40 to 60 hours working?

Think about how you will feel!!!

You know how to do a few things well, or learn the things you are interested in from other people . You trade those things with other people that they do well, preferably in a like-minded community. You help each other through shared work days to build infrastructure, grow food and generate energy. The excess of your efforts can be sold to outside communities or companies that will buy the things your community cannot make or grow itself.

There are many examples of this working, from the earliest US colonies to today’s Amish communities.

Today’s cities are the epitome of cooperation. Everyone is trading their work for the things they desire.

Is it ideal? No, but it works!

 

Capitalism and Feudalism…the only 2 Choices?

I recently watched a video where someone said there are only 2 systems in this world, Capitalism and Feudalism

I will describe them, but the questions is:  Is it time for a new system, a different way  of looking at our world?

Feudalism  was/is the only system in the world for many thousands of years. The rulers controlled the world and everyone else served them. It worked because it provided security and safety for 95% of the population, but also limited their upward mobility. Everyone stayed “in their lane.” If your family were farmers, you were a farmer, etc. There was very limited choice in one could do.

When the “plagues” in the middle ages killed a significant percentage of the serfs, labor became more valuable. That resulted more freedom by forming guilds of skilled workers. This was the beginnings of a “middle class.” They had more autonomy and provided mobility by using the concept of apprentices. This greatly increased world production and innovation. Some even were granted noble titles by the influence they held. But the Nobility still controlled by granting “favors” of resources, like land and exclusive rights to certain markets.

There were experiments in democracy in ancient history by the Greeks and Romans which had limited forms of Capitalism in them. They either failed or devolved into Feudalism, i.e. Emperors.

The merchants guild gave rise to the industrial revolution and then the overthrowing of the monarchs in the 18th and 19th centuries. It created the first experiment in Capitalism.

That has devolved back into Feudalism with the control of the economy by government and big business.

Also Communism arose which is really Feudalism in another form with a few controllers and the common man being suppressed.

The reason this happened is that we all crave safety and security above freedom. All it takes is for something bad to happen and then we ask for someone to “save us.” There are a few people who realize that and first create the fear event and also the “solution,” which restricts our freedom.

This has “worked” for thousands of years, but humanity is “waking up” from this “dream.” They are “Dreaming” about a different way of life.

It’s not exactly clear what that could look like, because it’s so hard to think differently after so much programming and our basic survival tendencies.

There are various “systems” that have been proposed.  Let’s just call them “Cooperative Networks.” 

That system says everyone cooperates to find solutions in various different ways. The competitive instinct is diverted into competing with oneself rather than with others. Most resources can be shared with enough room for personal needs and ambition. That ambition is turned from abusing others to serving them to get what one wants.

It is based on the principle of “one can do anything one wants so long as one does not infringe upon what anyone else wants to do.” It is called “basic rights and freedoms.”

It limits the tendency of the allocation of shared resources becoming a controlling mechanism. Participation in the use of those resources is on a voluntary basis. Payment is only for the ones one want it.

All contracts and agreements for trading and security are guaranteed with bonding and insurance. All disputes are resolved with arbitrators agreed to by both parties.

All services are offered in a competitive manner. One can hire whatever security and infrastructure companies one thinks meets there needs.

There is little to no need for “government” as most if not all of our needs are met by private companies.

Actually there is no moral reason to have a government if it is based on involuntary contracts and rights given to it that we don’t have. We don’t have the right to take someone else’s property without their consent, even for the “common good.” What is the common good if even one person is harmed? Really that is the “common bad.” >:)

Unless taxes and regulations are voluntary, they are immoral, so government as we know it is immoral, evil and unnecessary.

Common good is for the benefit of everyone and is the basis for cooperation where both sides agree. They agree because they both benefit.

This concept is in it’s infant stages and many of the details are being worked, but it has worked for various African tribes for many generations. It is small scale, and needs to be seen how it can be employed on a global scale.

There needs one small success which spreads to other successes and then organically grows to encompass the whole world.

The organic growth is the only way it will happen because it does not use or need controllers or elite to make it work.

Will some people or communities rise to the top as there more competent and less competent people? Yes, and that will always need to be channeled into the right direction by the constant teaching of cooperation rather competition with others. This is one the biggest challenges we have.

There many other issues to be resolved such as infrastructure and defense. With the Cooperative Networks starting locally, many of those issues will be addressed locally.

The solutions will grow as the Networks grow in cooperation with each other. The infrastructure will be maintained locally within each group and then expanded between as the need arises.

Since most resources can be locally derived such as housing, food and energy on a small scale basis, the need for many roads, trucks to haul goods, central sources of goods, medical and energy will not be necessary. The excess production of goods can be traded with other communities for their excess production.

It will naturally evolve into a cooperative structure where one’s strengths are traded for another’s strengths.

That eliminates the “competition instinct” of mine is better than yours. If your product is better than others, it will be wanted more and therefore will demand a higher price, so the goal will be to make the highest quality product. That creates competition between producers, but only at the level of quality. It is controlled by the users demand for the product, so the focus is on the user not the competition.

If there is an over abundance of a product in one region (potatoes in Idaho) resources will be diverted into other areas. (Not only potatoes can be grown in Idaho.)

Resources such as food that is available in the tropical areas can be grown in greenhouses. Also such things just might not be available to them. Their cultures evolved without them and can thrive as they are.

Do we really need oranges and bananas in the north? We were perfectly fine without them for many thousands of years. And the tropics were fine without potatoes too. They had other things such as rice, yucca, and plantain.

There can be trade for those unique items, but do we need oranges flown in from Chile, when they can be accessed from Mexico and other areas which are much closer. It is a tradeoff between the cost of the greenhouse and the transport.

Will people migrate to more tropical regions as it is simpler and easier to live? Probably as a natural consequence of the availability of natural resources.

Land use will become more efficient in those areas as they become more valuable.

Migration will also become more prevalent as people follow the weather (snow birds) to take advantage of resources and escape hot humid temperatures.

That will result in people living in a consistent 75 degree environment.

How does that sound?

Almost Utopia…well almost…LOL. One can hope.

That is in contrast with the dystopian nightmare we have existed in for many thousands of years.

If you don’t believe that, just don’t participate in the Cooperative Network. It’s voluntary…Remember!!!

Form your own system…community…and see if people will join you, and if not see if you can survive all by yourself.

I think we know the answer to that.

Cooperative Networks might not be THE “solution,” but it allows for many different experiments to match many different people.

Like-minded people congregate, and create communities that cooperate with other like-minded ones.

Simple as that.

Simple but never easy.

It will take a complete change in the way we think, but we don’t need to have it happen all once. Just one small success leading to others.

That’s how change has always occurred!

Fear is an Illusion!

Fear seems real, but you probably have seen the Meme: False Emotions Appearing Real.

Yes, it’s a false narrative.

The only thing real is Love. Fear is the absence of Love, just as cold is the absence of heat.

It’s real in that it is all over the news everyday. It’s how “they” control you. If you are in fear, you can’t think rationally. The flight/fight/freeze part of your brain is activated. The world is now continually in this state, due to the “situation.”

But many people are realizing the falseness and “thinking.” This is changing things. That change, and the future, is up for grabs.

That is up to each one of us to generate that future.

So are you beginning to “think?”

Why Invest?

I just was on a chat with an “investor.” She was telling me that I could “make millions” with her platform.

First of all, any such claims are suspect. I said how could I make a million dollars from a $100 investment. She said it would only take months.

Huh???

Would you believe that?

So I asked her how much she has made. She said $2.7 million!!! Didn’t ask for proof, but just said if she made any withdrawals…answer…Yes.

So I asked her what her goal was…answer…$10 million!!!

Wow!!! Big Dreamer!

Then the question was has it made any difference in her lifestyle? She said no.

What???

I then asked what would  be the reason for investing. She responded by how much I could make.

Seems like circular thinking without any reasoning as to WHY!!!

WHY INVEST?

Like I said, one reason is to change your LIFESTYLE. Another is to create security…like having a backup plan.

There can be many other reasons too, but is it reasonable to just invest for investment sake…just to accumulate…hoard…money.

There is a story where a man had his “barns” full. He said he will tear them down and build bigger ones, but he was told that his life would be “required of him” that very night and his wealth would be for naught.

The way this world works is the transfer of good and services. That means you receive and you give…and there is always enough…actually more than enough!

You can keep some of it for the upgrades to your life, but if you strangle the moving of “money” it will ruin you…losing it all, because you are violating the laws that keep life alive!

The real reason for investing is to improve your life and teach others to do the same.

How much is necessary to do that? Actually we need very little to live  comfortably. Does one need all the big houses and cars and parties?

Not Really…but I am not putting down anyone who has those things. I am just saying that there are better things to with it that are much more satisfying. Those things just prop up something missing inside…most of the time.

To get to the real reason why you want wealth is addressed in my Coaching…The 3 Steps to Finding Your Dream.

If you want REAL WEALTH. Send me a message at vsalzer@vincesalzer.com. I am also on all social media at the icons following you down this message.

Blessings!

You Might Have to Stay in That Alternate Reality

You might ask, “Which alternate reality?”

It’s the one where you are pain free, content and filled with joy, especially if you live with constant pain, or some other chronic condition.

I know, I have one…chronic stomach, gas and bowel issues.

I constantly have to go to the place where I am not it pain and everything is “good.” It’s the only way one can survive.

My day goes much better when I keep telling myself, “You can do it,” or “Go to that nice place.”

The longer I am in that “Alternate Reality,” the better it is.

I’ll just say it…You need to find Yours, because it will become your Real Reality!…if you stay in it long enough.

Why Negative Can Never Win

The negative can never win for a number of reasons.

The first one is that it is only there to give us a choice. If we didn’t have it, how would we know what the positive is?

It is the basis for free will…to pick one or the other.

The second is that it is not self aware. The Universe is positive or it couldn’t exist. The negative only destroys, so it can never ultimately win…or the Universe would not exist. If negative realized that it would just give up, and cease to exist, but it keeps going thinking somehow it can win. In the end it just destroys itself.

Some who choose the negative actually think they are doing good, because they see how bad this world and people are, so they think they need to control them to somehow make them good, not realizing that they, themselves, are what made the world so bad.

So see negative for what it is…just something there so we can see the choice we have…and the opportunity to choose the positive. It has no power in itself, only if we choose it…temporarily. It is there so we can learn what the positive is and choose it.

So don’t view it so negatively…lol. It is there for our good.

Now that’s a different way to look at it…smile!!!

Nobody is Coming to Save You!

I have to say it…”Nobody is coming to SAVE You!!!

Let’s talk about Christianity first. It’s says that when the “church” is “white as snow” then will Christ return. The church is You…all of us. We have to become worthy of His return.

Other people who talk about the “ET’s” coming say that we need to “raise our vibration” first to allow them to appear.

They will not interfere with our Free Will!

Other religions and traditions say the same thing. It might be cloaked in terms of a “great savior,” but always has a qualifying condition…When We Are Ready!

So get ready…learn how to think…and save Yourself. Don’t worry about anyone else. You can’t help them if you are in trouble.

It says Love your neighbor as yourself. So if you don’t love yourself, how can you love them???

The negative forces are being revealed right now to let you see them as they are.

Reject them…Resist them…and become that person that rises about the fake, corrupt, current world, and be a part of the New World that is surely coming!

 

New Future…

We all know that there is something wrong with this world, and it’s not going back to the way it was.

I have to say this…Quit kidding yourself that “everything will be ok, even if it never goes back to the way it was.”

The reality is that IT WON’T!!!

Step into that reality and take a hard look at what you are doing. Are you just going about your regular life HOPING that things will be ok, or are you preparing, thinking about the future.

If not you will be a victim that might not survive the change.

This is SERIOUS!

I could go through all the things that are pointing to the collapse of the way things are now, but that’s not my focus.

If you don’t believe it, there’s nothing I can do to help you.

For those of you who know things have to change, but don’t have a clue how to do that, I have a program called 3 Step to Finding Your Dream! I have written about that lots in other posts, so go there to find out more.

The focus here is to get you to think…really think…about the how YOU want the future to be.

Then realize that it is up to YOU to bring that about. Also to realize that YOU have to make a decision…stay in the old world or graduate into the new one!

After that I can help with the details of how to get there, including strategies and techniques as outlined in the 3 Steps.

But first you have to realize the uncomfortable truth…it’s not going back…and what do I do about it.

That is becoming honest with Yourself. It’s the first step to Freedom.

Make that decision today to move into the new future. It will give you hope and a Dream that will make your life worth living…even in the present deteriorating one.

Let Yourself be Loved

Step number one of the 3 step process to Finding Your Dream is Realize that You are Loved.

The first thing is to get to the point of non-judgment.

We have to start with a life review. Go through you life and catalog all the bad things you did and all the good things too. It seems easy to say but it’s about being honest with yourself. You don’t have to get into those places where you have deep trauma, just do an overview, but go as deep as you can.

This can take some time, as you will have a tendency to gloss over your faults or blame other people. It’s not about them, it’s about you.

You are not judging yourself, just cataloging.

Once you have the list, see if you can come up with a percentage of good to bad. Is it 50% good, or 70%, or 30%? Can you put a number on it? You will find out that you can’t do it. You really don’t know if the good outweighs the bad, because you don’t know how bad or good each item on the list is.

How do you know if you are good or bad then? There is no way to tell…or, in other words…judge yourself. You might have this feeling that you are bad, somehow, but confront it. Tell it that you don’t know…and can’t know.

So why not just forgive yourself for all the bad in you life. You might say that you can’t because of all the bad, but what about all the good? Maybe they equal out…

Maybe it doesn’t make any difference, because you don’t know. So why not just let it go…both the good and the bad…and just let things be as they are. It’s called self-forgiveness…the letting go!!! You have basis and the reason to do so now!

So you are neutral. I would call it clean! That makes you loveable.

Now who loves you? Well your family and friends do. They love for who you are. They made a judgment about you and decided that you are more good than bad and are worthy of love.

How about God, or the Universe, or whatever you want to call it? It does the same thing…deciding that you are worthy of love, and doing it ultimately, and unconditionally. IT LOVES YOU!!!

What if it didn’t? Would you still be alive, or would it just absorb you back into itself and make a new soul….one that is better? Well, it didn’t, so you must be ok!

Now you are Loved in spite of all the bad. You can’t judge yourself, and your friends think that are good enough to be loved and the Universe does too.

That is something that can be thought about and meditated on for the rest of your life.
