The Secret of Creation

Yesterday as I was driving my cab (yes, I am a part-time cabdriver) I met a man originally from Lebanon. He’d migrated to Sweden around thirty years ago, and as I asked whether he looked forward to the coming winter or not, he didn’t hesitate to share his discontent with the Swedish weather and its environment. He shared his love for Lebanon and how he felt that Sweden was a much more isolated and generally boring country – not as much happened here. In Lebanon he could go up into the mountains in the morning, bathe in the sea at midday, and go out to dance with his friends during the night. One day in Lebanon would feel as an entire year in Sweden. Although these observations from my perspective are more conjectures than actual facts, it was interesting to hear him out.


After a while our subject changed. I asked him about Lebanon’s state of affairs, and in particular why he’d moved. He then walked me through how Lebanon had initially been a flowering state, with much of the world’s petrol money located in its banks, allowing for a fruitful and abundant lifestyle, but that this had come to a halt. The region had now sunk into an abyss of insecurity, with unstable country-to-country relationships, especially due to the apparent “interventions” by the America world police. He explained that war was now upon Syria and Iraq, and that the chaos was definitely spreading.

Now, to get into the core point of this blog, which is that of “loosing hope” – what is really interesting is what this man next began sharing: He expressed clear insights as to who creates and why conflicts are fueled in the middle east, and in the Arab states, it’s due to oil and because of greedy corporations located in America, that use the American people to further their own interests, and use taxpayers money to buy weapons, wage wars, and secure resources for their own benefit. He shared that something had changed from when he was a child, and that at this point in time, everything was about money, everything was about ME, and getting on top of things, regardless of the consequences this might create for others – and he expressed and shared this insight in a tone acquiescence and resignation – clearly he’d given up on humanity.

This is where we’re going to get to the wisdom, the gift that this man is sharing, because actually, through his words we’re able to see one of the primary reasons as to why this world has yet to paradigmatically change – the two simple words are: GIVING UP – that is from my perspective one of man’s greatest weaknesses.

Consider the following: How is it that we learn to walk? We stand up, we fall, we stand up, we fall, we stand up, and we fall – but never do we give up – and this is why we’re able to acquire the skill of walking. Babies as such haven’t yet been instilled with the concept of giving up – and yes: Giving up is a skill – it’s a mental concept learnt by example and it would’ve not existed in humanity unless we’d accepted and allowed it – unless we’d diligently been practicing it and making it a trait and habit that we pass down to our children, and that they in turn pass down to theirs.

Giving up is a trait that must be removed in order for one to have impact in this world – because to walk a process of change requires that one walk beyond one’s comfort zone, beyond what one have known to work, beyond what one believed and thought, because only then can the NEW emerge – and the new can only emerge through a process of trial and error – through a process of failure, practice and perfection – nothing in this world that exist as a fully functional and manifested creation has appeared without having gone through this process – and this is the secret of creation = THE WILLINGNESS TO FAIL.

There was a great quote by Zig Ziglar, a salesman, and he said some along the following:

“Failure is only failure when you don’t learn from it” and “Remember, failure is an event, not a person”

So, what are we able to learn from this?

If you’re truly passionate about creating a new world, then buckle up your seatbelts Dorothy, and be prepared and willing to fail countless times, because that is what it will take – nothing less. I for one have decide that I am willing to fail, make mistakes, and do the wrong thing, as many times as is required until I get it – until I do have an impact – until this world do show signs of change. And this is not because I need success as a motivation, it’s because I’ve decided that this is what I am going to do with my life – nothing more and nothing less – I will live to make a difference.

Thus for anyone out there that has given up, realize that the only way to break through, and make a difference in this world, is through failure – there is no other way – so pull your sleeves up and let’s walk the process of creation until this is done.

Debt Fueled Economy

ImageWhen the western economies fell apart during the great crash of 2008 something interesting happened over in China. Because Chinas economy is mostly based on exports to the west the course that was predicted was that Chinas economic growth would stagnate and follow the recession taking place in Europe and America. This though did not occur and instead the opposite happened – Chinas economy continued to grow exponentially seemingly without being affected by the turn of events in the west. Obviously, this is fascinating and opens up the question as to how China could direct its economy to continue to grow regardless of the massive loss in exports.

There is a great documentary giving the answers as to why China persisted when the west fell apart – and you can see it HERE. What is shared in this documentary is the secret behind Chinas success. The key is be found in one magic little word:


Yes – China used its banks to super-charge it’s economy through opening up the credit floodgates – allowing for a massive lending spree. The consequences of this grand debt injection can be seen in how entire cities, complete with their own subway system, skyscrapers and monumental cultural and sports facilities, are now sprouting out of what seems to be thin air – this is how fast and massively China is now pursuing it’s growth policies.

It’s really fascinating and in the documentary I referred to they effectively shows just how bizarre this building marathon have started to become. There are some small cities with just some hundred thousand inhabitants that by their municipality have been awarded state of the art theaters and music arenas, of the caliber that you’d expect to see in metropolitan cities such as London and New York. The local politicians have thus taken matters in their own hand and through debt managed to build what in a western country would’ve been unthinkable.

Obviously the debt-fueled economy China is pursuing is not based on supply and demand – instead it’s based on a incessant need for growth. Because without growth there will be diminishment in jobs, and without jobs the political elite of China will have difficulty retaining their positions of power. Thus, from a purely economic perspective, what is happening in China is not very effective as it’s not REAL growth, it’s not REAL commerce – it’s an inflated growth and commerce. Many thus fear that Chinas vast spending is currently creating a massive financial bubble that in the coming years will pop and cause havoc on a global level.

Though, the point I want to bring through in this blog is not whether or whether not the economic policies of China are effective. Instead I want to show the POWER of money – and how one through taking control of and directing the money supply of a country can amass massive resources in the form of workers and raw materials. This is in essence what China has done. They have taken control over the bank institutions in their country and instructed it to through debt support economic growth.

But wait for it, here comes the fascinating aspect of this story.

Imagine what we could do in our countries if we would do the same thing WITHOUT adding on the DEBT. Think about what the effect would be if we as the people would create debt FREE money with the purpose supporting the growth in our countries. Because what is really money but papers and digits? Thus we’d simply take charge of the papers and digits and distribute these throughout the economy to fuel entrepreneurship and economic growth. In the process we would simply decide to not create the money as debt. Simple!

Because one of the major issues with our current economy is DEBT and how almost all money that circulates is DEBT. This have the consequence of placing massive strain on the people involved as there just never seems to be enough money to go around, never seems to be sufficient with money to build one’s life and all the time seems to be to much DEBT.

Thus, consider how our life’s could change if we take control of the money supplies, if we nationalize the banks and make sure that the money inserted into the economy are without debt.

There is a political proposal that as a part of its reinvention of the economic system suggests nationalizing the banks. This proposal is called Living Income and it’s a solution for a world in dire trouble. We do not need to bailout the banks, we need to take control of the banks and make them an asset in the hands of the people, so that we can focus upon building a world that is livable and create a future for our children that is dignified.
