In the City Press Newspaper – 15 January 2012 – an article by a person called ‘Maya’ – whom one would assume is a ‘financial adviser’. Her article in this newspaper is called: ‘Maya on Money’ and her introductory paragraph reads as us:
“Recently I was asked by a radio show to give five reasons why people should sit down now and plan their finances for 2012. Thinking about money when you have just come out of a very expensive month is always a challenge but hopefully this will provide some motivation.”
Financial advisers are not there to support anyone in finding effective solutions to the problems we all face on a day to day bases in the Money System. They lock you further and further into the Mind into survival patterns, to ensure that you keep being ok with how the Capitalistic System functions and to make peace with your life and your limited choices within the Money System. So let’s take a further look at her article, which to me was a blatant attempt at making sure people don’t really come out of the Money Problems we face as Capitalism, but to make sure you survive and live to ‘spend’ another day. I have underlined the specific words she used in admitting how corrupt the entire system is and also underlined the words she used to manipulation the reader with – words such as hope and motivation – to ensure that people keep justifying and accepting the way things are as our current Capitalistic System.
As you can see the article is split into 5 reasons why you should plan your money problems – sorry I meant your “finances” for 2012.
We have the first category which is:
“1. Beat the January Blues.
That first week or two back at work is always tough, so take some time to plan your next
holiday – it will give you something to look forward to. Part of that plan is working out
how much you can afford and how you are going to save for it. You will enjoy the holiday
a lot, more if it is already paid for.”
Why have we created this cycle of misery in which we work hard year after year just to pay off our debt to be able to live simplistic lives? Why have we come to accept that we will all be depressed come January because we have to go back into the cycle of slavery to the Elite/Capitalists? Why can we not live in a world where we change the Value of Life so that we live to express not live to survive? What is the enjoyment really for us living in a world where we have to plan how to deal with our debt we make because we want to express ourselves and live? Is this life? Even the ‘advisor’ admits that we are stuck in this pattern of knowing we have to focus the rest of the year on how to raise funds and pay of our debt – which means she knows all are trapped in the same patterns around money – and she even gives you advise how to continue remaining trapped in your cycle within capitalism.
“2. Be ready for Christmas 2012.
Most of us are dreading the bills – a reminder that our festive season budget was well
and truly blown. Make it
a New Year’s resolution not to get into debt next festive season and start putting some
cash away. It can be as
simple as taking a jar and writing XMAS 2012 on it to collect all your coins over the
year. If you collect R2 coins
you will be surprised how much you collect in a year. My husband is with FNB and used
their ” Bank your change” savings account. Every time he made a purchase it was rounded up
to the nearest R5 and the change was paid
into the savings account. For example if he spent R63 an amount of R65 was debited and R2
paid into the savings account. He saved R1900 a year.
Other than the fact that all of her advise is old and that you can find this ‘save your pennies advice’ in any woman’s magazine year after year after year, I would also like to add that her husband did not save anything because either way he only has so much money to his name whether he used it that day or months later. Tricky, tricky – how the capitalists lie! My first perspective on point one also ties in with this point – why do we have to juggle debt and worry about our survival? Also – Christmas has never been about Jesus, but about a day in which Capitalists impulses naïve people to buy lots of stuff because they believe in an invisible guy in the sky – so get rid of belief systems that have nothing to do with this physical reality and already people will stop feeling the need to cling to old rituals that are actually only motivated through Capitalism/Consumerism.
“3. Bankrupt the debt collectors.
Debt is such a waste of money, make a resolution to get out of debt and rather than paying
interest to the bank, use it to start saving. Get on top of your debt so you don’t end up
being farmed by debt collectors where they turn you into an annuity income for life! The
only way to get out of debt is to plan your finances. Start a budget and cut back.
She is missing the point (or is she?) of Capitalism as all eager Capitalists do. Capitalism is designed to function according to debt. So you cannot on the one hand tell people to cut back on their debt while still supporting a Capitalistic System. If we force the Elite to receive less money from our pockets then they will find new ingenious ways of forcing us to give them money – its call tax increases, general cost increases, the production of expensive products, petrol cost increases, inflation, hidden costs, engineered obsolescence, false advertising and the list goes on. Do not be fooled to think that the Capitalists care – they will find a way to make their money even if it means leaving billions of people to starve every day so that they can control the cost of food and necessities. The entire game of Capitalism first of all plays off people’s fears of survival, therefore obviously Capitalists and ‘financial advisors’ are not interested or motivated to find solutions to debt, poverty and suffering because the entire construct and existence of poverty and suffering creates the polarity friction point necessary to drive the rest of humanity through fear of survival to make/desire more money.
“4. Stay married.
Money is the number one reason marriages break up. Surveys show that people are more
about sex than money, but money problems bring far more marital stress. Sit down with your
spouse and look
at your finances and be honest about what you can afford. Also set goals and dreams – if
you get buy-in you will achieve your goals together. Avoid financial ruin and your
marriage will last.
Interesting that she says ‘avoid financial ruin and your marriage will last’ – implying that if people’s relationships and commitment to each other is determined by money then love is not real and the relationship commitment was not real. Also – why should our lives and our expressions be determined by Money?
“5. Grow Wealth not stuff.
We tend to fill our homes with lots of useless stuff. Open your wardrobe and look at all the
items of clothing you
have bought and worn once, or not at all. Look in your garage at all the gadgets you bought
and never use. These items are wealth destroyers.
Any person who has studied the basics of how Consumerism functions will know that products are designed firstly according to all the desires, fears, obsession, wants and needs of humans. Human thinking and psychology is studied to understand how we buy and what we buy according to our base programming. Therefore the design of products is specific to target and trigger specific emotions, feelings, fears etc. within people. So – first of all you cannot just suggest to people to look at all the stuff you bought that you never use – without offering them a solution on how to face and defuse the hidden layers that caused you to buy on ‘impulse’. The capitalists will always find ways of impulsing people to buy more stuff – so without understanding the minds connection to what people do, one cannot fully support people to not just buy stuff.
Within the DesteniIProcess for example, we work with the hidden layers of the Mind from which one is impulsed or triggered into acting, speaking, thinking, feelings, fearing – without one truly knowing where these reactions/drives came from.
A solution: Please read the section of my blog which deals with the FAQ videos and articles on an Equal Money System and see the practical considerations and design behind why I say an Equal Money System will stop survival based living which will allow all the Equal opportunity to Live as a full expression of ourselves here in this physical reality.
