Until we let go of the business model for life, we will continue our descent into microchipped slavery. I don’t view life as a business. The world? Yes. Life? No. The trouble is when we mistake the world for life. I’m the first to remind people of the fact that there is no ‘real world’ when they say “oh yeah, welcome to the real world”.
The world is a giant corporation that most people don’t see. We are kept busy with company X or company Y but, we would be wise to recognize that the world is run as a business. There is a board of directors. I’m not about to get into conspiracy theory but the fact is that there are about 2000 people as part of 13 families that control the decisions. Bloodlines.
The rest of us are seen as chattle (capital or cattle). On lower levels of this business are employers and employees. Regardless, the word employ comes from French meaning “to use”.
One thing that we aren’t told is that we are shareholders in this corporation. If we are not operating as a shareholder, then we are an employee. It’s that simple. How to show up to the corporation as a shareholder would take up a book (which, by the way, I’m almost finished writing)!!!
The sad part is that when we see the world as a business, our focus turns to profitability and capitalization. We neglect the simple emotional rewards and tend to forget the talents that were innately given to us. How can we turn it all around? I don’t think we can. It is an individual choice and not a government mandate or collective movement. The choice of freedom over security is a difficult one but it is worthwhile considering. Keep in mind that when I say freedom I am not talking about doing whatever you want whenever you want. That is irresponsible. Freedom has to be balanced with responsibility.
The world rewards those who step on others to get to the top of the pyramid. The truth is that you won’t get to the top. You will at best get to CEO of company X or Y. The top is reserved for bloodlines who do not give a fuck about us.
Do you know that it is easier to receive funding for an import/export business that employs 8 year old Chinese kids than it is to receive funding to build a new local community club? Such is the business model for the world.
Tomorrows post will be about the non-profit business model. Remember, every thing that we experience (including money) is just an idea. My advice today (besides not taking advice from bloggers) is to get outside, look at the clouds or sky, give thanks for your breath and go for a walk by the river. This is the real world.
