Continuation: d be striving to have.

It is definitely is an interesting topic and I enjoy talking about it. I am always open to other point of views. Seriously, check out the zeitgeist movement. I think they have the right mindset to go about the future. They even have a social engineer who constructs a city, similar to the Jetsons, completely self sufficient.

As always, peace, love, and happiness to all,

Hey Yaron,

You are absolutely right; we still have to trade, because of the system that has been in place for us. I look at it like this, we can either repair the broken system, which has failed us before, or we could tear it down and reconstruct a system that benefits mankind all together and that is built on morals, values, and ethics. I am a huge proponent of everyone being equal and living for free, doing the things they love to do. The system is to me analogous with a heroin addict who wants to get off his addiction. He can either quit cold turkey which is mostly recommended, because it breaks down his addiction and he can start his life over in a better direction. Or he can do the alternative, wean himself off of it by utilizing other addicting drugs that are less powerful and which have been proven to be least effective. The system of trade and currency was built on greed and power; therefore it will always be inherent within the system, no matter how much you try to fix it. I see any repairs to this system like a camouflage of greed and power.

Getting back to trade, how much longer do we really need to trade for currency and market share? Do we really need so many options out there for vehicles, TVs, computers, etc. Couldn’t we construct one or two products that outlast all of the rest? Also think of the accumulation of waste that is involved in producing so many products. We have the technology, but because of the system, companies slowly release technology to the masses to generate profits. Take computers and TV’s for instance; reflect on the advancement of them over the last 5 years. You know companies have developed the technology way before it was released, but because of the profit based system that we are in, companies will never release all of it at once. It wouldn’t be profitable.

Another point I wanted to make is that with the rise of technology, there will soon be no need for human labor. Let’s face it; computers and machines are beginning to do everything a human can, but a 100 times better and more efficient. Machines are being built that stripe away human jobs. Take for instance, a vehicle assembly plant; look at how many machines are doing human jobs. Our labor is now being turned into the customer support area, which could be eliminated with the right type of computer program that can handle the needs of humans.

Imagine countries trading as one and helping each other, without competition or greed or power, but for the benefit of mankind. In this situation there would be no need for currency exchange. We can trade technology for technology and share ideas. Just like professors and researchers do when it comes to sharing ideas and research. I know it sounds like fantasy land, but it is a practical point of view. The truth is we have the technology to feed and house everyone on earth; we just use these resources in other areas, like weaponry and soldiers.

Finally, I always hear the same question from everyone; what will humans do for work? How will they function? We all need something to do. My answer to that is this, do what you love. There are many people, including myself, that get great satisfaction helping people. Also, I enjoy learning and thinking. We can always do something constructive without being a slave to labor.

The best way to see my point of view is to imagine we are all homeless, like the native Americans were in the time of Columbus. Imagine there were doctors, educators, laborers, etc, all working together as one for the benefit of the tribe. No one was better than anyone in the tribe and the chief was the same class as the people in the tribe. Now think of the tribe as the world. This is where I see us being if we want to be as perfect as the universe. We can make this happen, but to do so, would mean to rid the mindset of possessions and property; after all these materialistic possessions do not bring happiness, which is something we shoul

Fantastic! Have you heard of Positive Polarity Money?

As an conscious entrepreneur and consumer, I believe we can address social issues while running a profitable business on integrity and awareness. Though I am in start up phase I have been in the business world for over 25 years, you can decide how you want to play in the world. Jeff Klein wrote a great book about it called Working for Good. It is about creating new models for living and being.

It seems the new race of humanity is becoming more psychic, therefore businesses that 'maintain' purity of motive and integrity will survive in the Paradigm Shift from force to love energy.

Louis, I hear you... but even if we lived "for free" wouldn't we still trade?..If there was no money, then there could be a video called "conscious trading" and the message would still be "Do things that benefit Humanity and the World". Money was created as a tool for trading, but I agree with you that this tool has been tainted by greed and fear (fear of not having enough power) which comes from the illusion/idea that we are all separate from each other. Regardless of the tools we use for trading, my hope is that Humanity will evolve to the point in which all people have access to life's basic needs (health care, food, clothing, shelter, education etc.), with the opportunity to work for things beyond the basic needs. The "for profit" motive behind life's basic needs, prisons, and war must be removed for us to truly practice conscious trading and sharing. And if all people have access to life's basic needs, then there will be much less reason for crimes, prisons and war. With that being said, I think it's important for there to be more dialogue about this topic.. perhaps a global televised discussion would be good. Thanks for sharing your perspective... Peace, Love and Happiness right back at you.

I have to say that I do not particularly care for this approach. It is just another ploy for greed to manifest. I think that in this day and age there is no reason for any of us to have to pay for anything. We have so much technology that we literally could all live for free. Check out Think about everything we have to pay for. The world and the universe operates perfectly, how come man cannot? The native americans had a perfect society. The perfect utopia. We can achieve this utopia in modern day. Just think it and it will be. Don't be fooled by this well edited video. The underlying message still represents greed. Peace, Love, and Happiness to all.
