How on Earth will an Equal Money System be Implemented?
http://earthincorporated.wordpress.com/ ... plemented/

One of the most frequently asked questions about the Equal Money System is the question of how the system will be implemented. Indeed it can be difficult to see how an entirely new way of existing is and will be possible considering how we currently exist. What is important to realize and understand is that a new way of living will not suddenly come about by itself. So how we will get from where we are today, to an Equal Money System , is through practical changes accumulated step by step, through actions taken by directive groups and individuals advocating the Equal Money System.

For an Equal Money System to be implemented, we require a re-education of the group, as all of humanity. This is required because we, as we currently exist, are in no condition to take self-responsibility for the world as a whole. It is also required so that we can realize and understand that a different way of existing is even possible and from there, educate ourselves to be able to implement the changes required practically. Even though we can somewhat consider the notion of an Equal Money System, we have a long way ahead of us to learn how to live together in a way that is in fact best for all. What is further more required for an Equal Money System to be implemented, is that the group of people that are currently starving and suffering, which counts more than half of the world’s population get breathing-space as a “break” from having to exist within a fight to survive, so that they actually become able to even vote for an Equal Money System.

We thus require an intermediate relief of the most pressing suffering and inequality that human beings currently exist within and conditioned to. Once this is in place as a basic system where all are given the necessities to live a dignified life, we have enable ourselves to practically stand together to implement an Equal Money System

This basic system is what is known as the BIG or Basic Income Grant or Guarantee system[1]. The basis of the system is to[2]:

Provide everyone with a minimum level of income,
Enable the nation’s poorest households to better meet their basic needs,
Stimulate equitable economic development,
Promote family and community stability, and
Affirm and support the inherent dignity of all.
This preliminary system will ensure a basic level of existing for all those countries participating where all citizens will be supported. It is from there that we can start implementing a fully functioning and Global Equal Money System. Once we get to this stage practically, we can start discussing and deciding how products are to be produced, how goods are stored and how work is going to be dispersed and all other questions pertaining to how to practically exist in a way that is best for all.

The first step in the implementation of an Equal Money System is thus a Basic Income Grant System and this will only be implemented as we re-educate ourselves to start caring about and understanding all life as equal to change our incentives within how we exist. We do this through changing ourselves and through exposing the system that is here for and as ourselves and each other, until we clearly see what is here for what it is and what are required to be done.

At Desteni, we encourage all to participate in the discussions on the forums to gain a practical understanding of what is required to be done and how we can each stand up to change the world. At The Equal Money Forum we discuss points specifically pertaining to the Equal Money System and at the Desteni Forum we come together to support ourselves to practically change and stand up as self-responsible, through writing ourselves to freedom in self-honesty and supporting each other to do the same.

We are active on Facebook and Youtube all year round, 24/7 as we participate from all areas of the world. Here we share links to relevant documentaries and news stories, personal experiences and realizations as well as music and videos. These is also available along with many products at the Destonians own shop EQAFE. Here we provide access to all the blog books written by Destonians as well as official books on the Equal Money System and exclusive interviews.

We encourage you to join us and begin the journey towards the making of a world that is Best for all, a world that is created from our very own hands, as we walk ourselves, step by step, breath by breath to self-honesty in self-responsibility for what is here. If we can do it, anyone can. And who will do it, if we don’t?

Where Ends Meet – The Retirement of an outdated Money System
By Anna Brix Thomsen 04/12/2011

http://earthincorporated.wordpress.com/ ... ey-system/

Have you ever seen those advertisements for retirement companies – you know, the ones that are showing happy men with silver stained hair and tanned with huge smiles standing on the golf course? Or the older couple sitting on a balcony in the sunset drinking margaritas and playing scrabble? Do you also dream that it will be you one day – walking barefoot in the sand with no worries and a loaded bank account?

Well, most likely that is never going to happen. And in this article, we are going to expose why – and how you can do something about it yourself, here and now, without having to slave away for years until you get the payoff of retirement.

Did you know that in order to even get a retirement fund, all you have to do is to work the next 20 – 40 years in a job you will most likely hate or change every couple of years for less pay as you wait for that retirement fund to kick in? All you have to do is to give 40 – 60 hours pr. week working and many more hours commuting in cramped subways or on packed highways for then to go home to sleep, only so that you can be ready to go to work again in the morning. You can then go out drinking in the weekends to get all the anger, that you’ve built up towards your boss, colleagues and yourself, ‘out of your system’. You can even go on holidays once in a while to really reload so that you can manage to spend one or ten more years slaving away.

Is this really what we live for? What we give our lives for, each and every day slaving away in jobs, one more horrible than the next? We even make ourselves believe that what we are doing is wonderful and purposeful and satisfying, just so that we can push and force ourselves to keep going.

So – what if we did not have to work and live these exhausting lives where we have to lie to ourselves and everyone around us? Later we shall discuss how this is in fact possible.

An estimate from the European Union shows that the working population will fall by 50 million between 2008 and 2060, where the amount of people over 65 will have increased by 67 million. At the same time the fertility rate is decreasing, which means that the smaller younger generations will be responsible for caring for a large group of elderly people.



According to an analysis made by Russia Today, it is estimated that in Britain 7 out of 10 people cannot afford to retire on their pensions. And thus if the elderly are forced to remain on the job market because they cannot afford to retire, less young people are able to get into the job market. Subsequently there is in the US there an estimated 24 % youth unemployment rate. This is the same country where the richest 400 Americans, has more money than the bottom 150 million people combined. The lucky few can obviously afford to retire whenever and wherever they wish to do so. Depending on our age, our income and where we live, you and I are more likely to have to work literally until we die. Of course none of this is even mentioning countries where there is no such thing as retirement and where people suffer in poverty from the moment they are born.



The solution is not to simply raise taxes on the rich as the problem is within the entirety of our systems and how we’ve allowed ourselves to exist and live accordingly. The problems is a system, where we accept and allow millions of elderly to suffer and to die in poverty through the justification that the few who has all the money, has gotten to that position in life fair and square and that we would do exactly the same, were we in their shoes. To support this belief, advertisements suggest that everyone can win a happy life on an exotic island somewhere, playing golf and sipping cocktails in the sunset if they just believe in it and work for it. Pension funds are created to further legitimize this belief and make it more probable than possible and the problem is that once we reach the age of 70 and realize that it was all one big scam, it is too late. There is no exotic island, just as not all little boys can become multimillion soccer players or NFL stars. Yet these are the fantasies that are instilled and installed into us by the very system that we’ve created to manage ourselves and our lives.



The solution is that we require an entire overhaul of our monetary and political systems, not to mention of our own outlook on the world. We require overhauling how we have been romanticizing survival as a justification of inequality and suffering and how we’ve used this to manipulate and deceive ourselves and each other to keep going with a smile on our faces, even though we are slaving ourselves day in and day out in jobs we hate.



Because if we don’t, it is the same bleak future we are promising our children and their children – a future with no pensions or retirement, where the majority work to die, essentially to ensure that that the system keeps going and remains unequal in its basic foundation.



Now, in an Equal Money System, retirement will not exist. Why no one will retire in an equal money system, is because there is no requirement for retirement in a system where all life is supported equally and where each and every single human being has their life secured financially from the moment they are born.

The idea of retirement is a product of capitalism where middle class people were manipulated into believing that the system was doing them a favor, was supporting them and their children by placing in a social security system, yes as we can see this system is not functioning in fact to the benefit of all and is largely placed-in to compensate for other costs and as such ensure the system profit.

In an Equal Money System, we don’t actually have to get tired and therefore require a re-tirement, because we can live our lives at our own pace, not rushing through trying to make ends meet or to survive. We will not be competing and fighting against each other to be the one that wins a happy life on a paradise island – because first of all, we will all have woken up to realize that this was not real and that it was a fantasy that we’d instilled into and as ourselves to keep going in the delusion of the game-of-survival. Secondly, we will realize that in order to actually create paradise on Earth, we firstly have to take self-responsibility for what is already here, to face the world and the systems and ourselves and everything that is here, so that we can decide in clear assessment what kind of world we would like to live in and what is practically required to make that happen. If we want heaven on earth, we’ve got to create it for ourselves.

So – in an Equal Money System, which at this stage is as close as we get to heaven on earth, because it is a system that is based on what is best for all, everyone will from a certain perspective be retired all the time. Our entire lives will be more relaxed and enjoyable because we’ve dismantled the element of fighting to survive from our lives. We can still be busy and work hard, but it will be at our own accord and because we decide to do so in common sense consideration of what is best for all. It is quite astounding to realize that such a world and way of living is in fact possible, but it is even more astounding to realize that we’ve been chasing a fantasy of retirement while enslaving our entire lives to a system of suffering and inequality.

To realize this for ourselves is the first step to re-creating a new world on earth that is best for all life, equal and one. Because once we have realized this, that our entire motivation has been based on fear and delusional desires, we can start changing our starting-point within and as who and how we live and exist.

So - Where the ends meet is within the retirement of an outdated Money System and the beginning of an entirely new way of living on Earth, where all Life is cared for Equal and One.

The end of Jealousy with an Equal Money System
By Anna Brix Thomsen 08-12-11
http://annabrixthomsen.com/?p=1491

Have you also experienced that intense sting of jealousy or the pain in the stomach that feels like your entire body is about break into a thousand pieces? Or that experience of almost going insane and feeling out of control within being subjected to the irrational and emotional experience of jealousy? Would you like to never again experience jealousy? To never again experience someone you care about being jealous and therefore not support you in what you are doing?

In this article we will have a look at exactly those questions as we will look at jealousy and how it exists in this current system. We will furthermore look at how it is possible to stop jealousy all together, not only within ourselves, but within the world as a whole with the solution of an Equal Money System.


"Never waste jealousy on a real man:

it is the imaginary man that supplants us all in the long run" - George Bernard Shaw

According to Wikipedia , the word Jealousy "stems from the French jalousie, formed from jaloux (jealous), and further from Low Latin zelosus (full of zeal), in turn from the Greek word ζήλος (zēlos), sometimes "jealousy", but more often in a positive sense "emulation, ardour, zeal" (with a root connoting "to boil, ferment"; or "yeast")."

If we look at the two original definitions the newer being "full of zeal" and the older "to boil/ferment/yeast.", the first exposes the fact that jealousy is an intense energetic experience, and the second the consequence of that experience as a literal deterioration of the physical as a process of fermenting. Those who have experienced intense jealousy, will recognize how there first is a surge of energy and thereafter, depending on ones level of possession, one will go into a constant state of jealousy where one becomes bitter and spiteful and one will literally start to ferment and deteriorate. It is interesting to note that the 'yeast' symbolizes something that will grow through fermenting under the right conditions. The same is the case for jealousy. Under the right conditions jealousy will grow and keep growing.

And have you ever noticed how everyone gets jealous at each other? What this shows, is that jealousy is a basic component of the competition between people and that everyone participates in. We compete and fight each other to survive, because we believe that we are separate and that there is only room for one of us -- yet this is a delusion, because there is already only one of us: all of us - One Earth - One Life, One Whole.

So let's have a look at how jealousy exists in the world:

I recommend these videos for a more extensive perspective on Jealousy from a Destonian perspective: Jealousy is Nasty - Love is Nastier, Evolution of Jealousy, The design of jealousy

Below is a list from Wikipedia describing the various contexts that jealousy can be experienced in/through Each specific context exemplifies why and how jealousy exists in the current system and further more consequently through which it can be seen how jealousy will not exist in an Equal Money System.

Sibling rivalry – Sibling rivalry is a common form of family jealousy. Family jealousy can affect all ages and different members of any family. This jealousy can arise from lack of attention from a specific member in the family. More attention towards another member of the family can cause this emotion or the emotion can be seen through comparison to another member in the family. This type of jealousy is once again in result of losing some sort of attention or services that someone once had or that they believe that they had.

Workplace jealousy – Jealousy in the work place is not uncommon. People can experience jealousy of one another in practically any setting that one person feels like they are losing services from something or someone else. This type of jealousy is often seen between colleagues in similar job positions. If one worker receives positive feedback from the boss while the other employee feels like they deserved that, positive feedback jealousy can arise. Jealousy between colleagues can also arise if the employees are working for a raise or trying to outdo each other for similar job positions. Once again, the attention received towards one employee and not the other may cause intense emotions of jealousy to develop.
Romantic jealousy – Romantic jealousy can be experienced in long-term or short-term relationships. One partner can feel the emotion of jealousy arise if the other partner is paying more attention or time with someone else. To lose services from one partner and have their attention directed towards someone else does not have to be in a romantic way. One partner could be spending more time with a friend that no romantic feelings could ever develop.

Platonic jealousy – Platonic jealousy is a form of jealousy that is seen in friendships. Platonic jealousy is similar to romantic jealousy in the way that this type of relationship can lead to jealousy in result of fear of being replaced, having competition or being compared to a third party. For example, the intense emotion of jealousy can arise if two friends that are females decide that they like the same man and both want to possibly start a romantic relationship with him. Comparison and competition will more often than not lead to the two females experiencing the emotion of jealousy.

Sibling rivalry is a result of competition embedded into and existing as a part of family-construct that in turn is a crucial part of holding the world-system in place. Family is thus the incubator through which we eventually become the full-functional systems. (Read my article Fascist Family - The shocking truth for more perspectives on this point) Thus parents will literally play their sibling children out against each other through subtle manipulation and favoritism. According to Bernard Poolman, Parents and Siblings are the Keepers of the Past and parents will encourage competition between siblings specifically to ensure that the strongest genes survives and carries the genetic legacy of the family through to the next generation. They will thus tend to support the child they see carry the strongest genes.

Now - workplace jealousy is based on the exact same point: competition, yet here it is a different way it is playing out as it also has to do with success, yet in work and career, the point of competition is much more directly playing out, since people are literally competing on life and death to be the ones in the best positions with the most money, knowledge, networks and power. Points like fashion and technology-hypes are direct derivatives from this point and lots of money is being made (obviously by people who wants to get to the top themselves) so that people can compete over who is the most modern or has the newest cell phone or watch.

This entire point is experienced so real for those participating, for example in the business sector that they don't see that it is absolutely delusional. In their mind they are fighting for their life through keeping up to speed with trends. Jealousy obviously occur for those who fear losing what they have and that is literally everyone. So the point of jealousy in the workplace is instilled directly by the system itself and within that by people keeping the system in place through buying the "newest new" and through the actual competition in the work environment for jobs and positions of power.

Romantic jealousy is one of the most common reasons for domestic violence and "crimes of passion". It is also one of the contexts that we have discussed here where jealousy is more explicit and competition is more implicit based on the idea that the partners are equal and supposed to work in a team to win. However this is also what leads to the most intense experiences of jealousy as the fear of losing ones partner increases. Those who are single will be jealous of those who are in relationships who in turn will fear losing their partners.

Now - in an Equal Money System, jealousy will no longer exist. There are two reasons for this.

Firstly, we will, by removing the element of competition between us and the delusion that we require to fight each other to survive, remove jealousy as jealousy is, as we have seen, a direct result of competition. People will not require to buy the latest things to keep up appearances or to play their children out against each other in an attempt of ensuring the tribes survival. People will not go into relationships just to be competitive on the mating-market. They will not require a mate to exist and live a satisfying life.

Why people do all of this in the first place, is within a belief that we must fight to survive - this is so embedded within our lives and experiences that we are literally refusing to give it out out of fear that we will fall behind in the competition that we perceive life to be. It is because of this fear of losing, of dying, of not surviving, that we experience jealousy towards all and everyone.

The second reason is thus that we will re-educate ourselves to stop the delusion and existing in fear. We have become so used to existing in fear that it is not necessarily easy to give it up or to even see that literally all our motivation for the things we do in our lives is based in this exact fear. Therefore we require to support ourselves to stop all participation in jealousy and competition and fear of not surviving. One of the ways we can support ourselves is of course by giving everyone on Earth Equal Money.
As we establish this basic point of equality in our outer reality, we also establish a foundation for an inner reality, which we in turn require to transform our entire world and reality into and as a place where no one fear each other or perceive themselves as separate from the whole. The re-education back to equilibrium will take as long as it takes. By implementing an Equal Money System, we have

taken the first step to a world without jealousy, competition to survive and fear.

There will thus be no jealousy in an Equal Money System because there will be nothing to feel jealous about. We will have nothing to lose and we will not have to compete with others to survive because all resources will be given to by ourselves equally.

That is the form of reality and world that we have all dreamed about, consciously or not, yet which no one have even believed to be possible. We will never have to feel or experience jealousy again, because we will have removed the basis for it, that is the delusion that we must fight each other to survive as manifested into and as our family-, work-, work- and money-systems. And we will begin the process of cleansing ourselves inside and out until we have established equilibrium, in our bodies, work places, relationships and on the earth as the one whole it has always been. We experience jealousy because we believe ourselves to be separate, not only from each other, but from ourselves as well when in fact we are not and cannot be separate as we are all here as a whole.

Join us as we embark on a journey to discover life in equilibrium. Vote for Equal Money for All and Walk the Process of Bringing Breath back to Life.

Imagine no Imagination
http://annabrixthomsen.com/?p=1522
By Anna Brix Thomsen
08-12-11

As heard on Facebook: "All the breaks you need in life wait within your imagination."

Common sense perspectives on imagination - there are no breaks waiting in the depth of our imagination - because all there is waiting in the depths of imagination, is for us to take ourselves on infinite rides on waves of fantasy, dreaming and hoping and scheming ourselves into magical futures, where all is suddenly sorted out, neat and perfect and shining. And so we daydream and dose off while we think about all the things we could do or all the things we could have been or we visualize our way into a fictive reality of abstract perfection, without the shameful density of the physical body and world.

All of this done, the inner imagery, so that we do not have to actually be and live Here - in this here reality, where the world is not pretty, where flowers wither and children starve. We do it deliberately so that we can cope with our experiences of ourselves in our daily lives and realities and so that we can manipulate ourselves to keep going in our lives because we hope that it will soon be our turn, that we will soon get our chance to shine. So we will create and conjure up these inner images as a way of creating an inner reality that can take us away from the actual reality of ourselves and of the world. Movies, science fiction novels, role playing and computer games are all created for this exact purpose. We believe that we are "taking a break" from reality - yet do not realize that we exist within and as that exact state of imagining every waking moment and even when we sleep and dream.

I have spent many hours and many large sums of money on visualization. I have visualized myself back to past selves in lives I never knew I had, from being a dragon hunter in some ancient civilization to the princess of Lemuria. I have visualized the colors of my chakras till I was blue in the face. I always thought that there was something wrong with me because I could not "see it" or any of these "images" and that I necessarily had to be "tainted" with/by the "dirt" of the world because my "vision was not clear enough".

lol - I am using a hell of a lot of ironic brackets here, because it is an ironic topic - all of the brackets are indicating a delusion based on an illusory belief system where we try to become something that is not real. That is what I was trying to do, all those hours visualizing - becoming someone else, a better version of myself - a higher (version of) self.

The origin of the word Imagination comes from image (n.) c.1200, "piece of statuare; artificial representation that looks like a person or thing, " from O.Fr. image "image, likeness; figure, drawing, portrait; reflection; statue," earlier imagene(11c.), from L. imaginem (nom. imago) "copy, statue, picture," figuratively "idea, appearance," from stem of imitari "to copy, imitate" (see imitation). Meaning "reflection in a mirror" is early 14c. The mental sense was in Latin, and appears in English late 14c. Sense of "public impression" is attested in isolated cases from 1908 but not in common use until its rise in the jargon of advertising and public relations, c.1958. http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?term=imagination

So - the act of imagining, which is thus something we actively do, is the act of creating mental images based on reflecting reality - and as described above, an image is defined as an "artificial representation that looks like a person or thing" and as a "reflection in a mirror" both of which thus refers to an inner mental reflection of the actual physical world. What is interesting to note here is that a reflection in a mirror is showed in reverse - thus when we look in a mirror, we are looking back at ourselves in reverse. And an image as an artificial representation is based on a fantasy of what something or someone could look like. So when we imagine something, we are on one hand creating fantasies as artificial realities of what "could be" and at the same time doing so by reversing and inverting reality into and as ourselves.

This can assist us in understanding why we feel a need to create these mental fantasies of a better reality, a better us than who we are now, something more and bigger and meaningful than what is here as a way of trying to cope with our actual experiences in and as this world. Yet by fantasizing and imaging what "could be" we are ironically ignoring and disregarding what is here as the real hands-on, physical reality. So we are actually preventing ourselves from creating, experiencing and living-in the exact reality and self we dream of.

What is thus required, is that we stop imagining and stop waiting for a wonderful reality and a higher self to magically appear some day out of the blue, while we, in our actually reality here, are doing nothing but day-dreaming about what "could be". What "could be" is never gonna come, if we do not actively and directly place-in the changes that are required for us to actually create the world we would like to live in and the self we would like to live as. We have to actively change ourselves for the world to change and to do that, we require to get back to earth and ground ourselves in self-honesty to SEE what is here and from there decide what is required to change.

To do this we propose an Equal Money System as an interim solution that can bring us back to a point of practical equilibrium, through ensuring that we earth ourselves as equals here in this world, so that we can face ourselves and each other, directly. At Desteni we face reality through facing ourselves. We walk a Process of deconstruction the delusion as illusion that we've accepted and allowed ourselves to be, become and exist within and as. Destonians are human beings that have decided to remove the veil of fantasy and imagination from our own eyes, to discontinue our inner realities so that we can start living and existing here together -in this one reality, on this one earth.

What will END Jehovah’s Witnesses?
http://annabrixthomsen.com/2011/12/10/w ... witnesses/
By Anna Brix Thomsen
10/12/2011

I once heard a joke that went something like this: ”A man died and went to heaven. As he knocked on the door to heaven, Sct. Peter opened the door and invited him in. Sct. Peter welcomed him to heaven and started showing him around. The man saw people sitting and drinking coffee and chatting, just like normal. They passed by a room and the man looked in. The people that was sitting in there waved hello The man thought that they looked perfectly normal and nice. Sct. Peter said ”oh yes, that is the muslims”. The continued down a hallway and got to a closed door. Sct. Peter said: ”Listen, I am going to open this door and you can look him, but do UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES let the people know that you are there.” The man said: ”why not?” and Sct. Peter replied: ”Because they are Jehovah’s witnesses and they believe they are the only ones here.”

One of the primary beliefs of the Jehovah’s witnesses is the belief in armagedon as the end of the world as we know it. They also believe, hence the joke, that only those who give themselves to God (as the Jehovah’s witnesses) will be saved and be a part of a new world with heaven on Earth. The Jehovah’s witnesses outlook on the world is thus one of division, where there are only two kind: the soon-to-be-saved people (themselves) and the profane and soon-to-be-doomed (everyone else).

In looking at why people subscribe to something like Jehovah’s witnesses, there a multiple and somewhat complex reasons – and at the same time, Jehovah’s witnesses are just like any other group or individual in the world that abdicates the total responsibility for their lives by projecting it onto a elusive creator-figure located in some ‘distant realm’ conveniently out of reach. Being a Jehovah’s witness makes the people that define themselves as ”witnesses” feel safe. By belonging to a community such as the Jehovah’s witnesses, one does not have to be alone in the world and are supported by the community to care for ones basic needs. If one however leave the community, one risk being ex-communicated and never again see one’s family or friends. By being a Jehovah’s witness, one hand over one’s life to a ”higher power” and through that never have to ask any questions or stand accountable for the consequences of their actions based on their beliefs. The same goes for the community ones live in.

These are the primary reasons for why people participate in such communities – however in the Jehovah’s witnesses community as also in other fundamentally religious communities and the 2012 movement, there is a further dimension of/as the belief in ”the end of times” or armagedon. What this belief gives them, is a sense of ”now” and an energetic excitement within knowing that the end is near. It is also because of the belief that the end is near, that they lay their life in the hands of god. Because, what do they have to lose? And ironically, the same goes the other way around – according to this belief, they have everything to lose if they did/do not subject themselves to god. Within the world constantly ending they can perceive what is here as unreal and irrelevant. They simply have to wait for the rest of the world to end and for them to ‘rise to the occasion.’

In an Equal Money System, there will be no Jehovah’s witnesses because in an Equal Money System there will be no reason to submit and subject ourselves to authorities outside, separate from ourselves. Our lives will not be so miserable that we literally have to hand ourselves over to a fictive savior-figure, to which the only security we have, is faith. Instead we will be supported – we will support ourselves – through a system of practical Equality, to stand up as self-authorities, as sovereign and equal citizens of Earth. The reason for this is that we in an Equal Money System, will be supported from the moment we are born with the basic necessities that each of us require; clean water, food, shelter and education.

Within this, we are all standing together as the point of support and self-authority. There is no need for ‘middle-men’ as God or church-leaders to decide who we are, or where we are gonna go, because we have taken life into our own hands and stand together to ensure that what is best for all life, is implemented into and as our world-systems and societal institutions. Life is in our own hands and it is on our own feet that we will be walking a new world into manifestation, one step at a time. We do not require beliefs in armagedon or any other beliefs to fee alive or to postpone our self-responsibility for what is here – we are directing ourselves here and immediately take care of what is required to be done, so that all citizens, all Earthlings are ensured a life of dignity.

An Equal Money System will be the end of Jehovah’s witnesses because in an Equal Money System, we will simply all be witnesses of our own self-direction and self-creation of a world that is best for all. The people who were Jehovah’s witnesses because they did not know what else to do, because there were no alternatives, will simply be people, equally living here.

Når jeg applicerer selv-tilgivelse, så gør jeg ofte og faktisk helst i ‘øjeblikket’ . Med det mener jeg når der opstår et punkt i løbet af min dag hvor jeg f.eks. tillader mig selv at gå på kompromis med mig selv eller hvor jeg pludselig går ind i en oplevelse af følesesmæssig turmult.

Det allerbedste jeg har fundet er at applicere selv-tilgivelse med det samme idet at det går op for mig at jeg har adskildt mig fra mig selv her, fra simpelthen bare at eksistere here, direkte, umiddelbart uden sindet som en mellemmand der fortæller mig hvordan jeg skal tolke virkeligheden ud fra min egen personlige oplevelse og verden.

Indeni den verden eksisterer kun jeg, og det er ikke engang jeg som jeg er nu – det er jeg som kulminationen af alle de minder og oplevelser jeg nogensinde har oplevet og genereret indeni mig selv og gentaget gang på gang. Dét er ”den jeg er” nu.

Når jeg så oplever en følese f.eks. som angst, frygt eller dårlig samvittighed, kan jeg stoppe op og sige til mig selv: ”hov, hvad var nu det? – hvor blev jeg af?” – og jeg kan se at jeg oplever skyldfølelse for eksempel som reaktion på en tanke omkring noget jeg skulle havde gjort. Dermed har jeg identificeret selve oplevelsen indeni mig selv samt tanken bag. Derefter kan jeg undersøge specifikke minder som kunne være årsag til denne oplevelse.

Alt dette kan vi gøre i et split sekund og som vi sætter farten ned på hastigheden af vores sind, dvs. farten af tanker, følelser og oplevelser som de drøner rundt i kroppen på os, bliver det lettere og lettere at identificere specifikke tanker og se nøjagtigt hvor og hvorfor jeg tillod mig selv at overgive mig til netop denne tanke/følelse/oplevelse i stedet for at blive here, direkte i den fysiske virkelighed.

Så lad os sige igen at jeg oplever skyldfølelse i et øjeblik mens jeg cykler på vej til arbejde. Så snart at jeg identificerer at det er skyldfølelse jeg oplever, kan jeg stoppe. Jeg behøver ikke stoppe cyklen for at applicere selv-tilgivelse. Jeg kan simpelthen bare starte fra en ende af: med skyld-følelsen.

Så afhængigt af hvilket punkt det er man oplever, hvor dybt ligger og hvor længe man har deltaget i det, kan det være nødvendigt at vente til om aftenen når man er kommet hjem så man kan skrive punktet ud i detaljer i ro og mag eller det kan være et punkt som man simpelthen kan give slip på i øjeblikket og aldrig igen opleve netop den skyldfølelse i kombination med netop dét minde.

Det kan være svært at forestille sig at man faktisk kan give slip på vaner og mønstre som man har deltaget i hele sit liv og som man har taget for givet som ”den man er” simpelthen ved at identificere hvor og hvordan disse mønstre og vaner er skabt og ved at tage ansvar for disse igennem det at tilgive sig selv og derigennem at ændre hvordan man lever i sin fysiske praktiske virkelighed.

Det er en af de ting som man kun kan forstår når man har bragt sig selv til og igennem det samme punkt, men oplevelsen af at være fri for et mønster som har begrænset én hele ens liv, er en helt utrolig oplevelse. Hvad er endnu mere fantastisk er, at man selv har bragt sig selv til denne erkendelse. Dét er frigørende ud over alle grænser. Og dette er bare begyndelsen.

Et eksempel: I mange år har jeg reageret på vejret og årstiderne. Så når det regnede og var gråt følte jeg mig melankolsk og om efteråret blev jeg deprimeret og bange. Én dag besluttede jeg mig for at applicere selv-tilgivelse omkring disse oplevelser og jeg gik igennem alle de oplevelser jeg overhovedet kunne se relaterede sig til oplevelsen af bestemte følelser i relation to vejr og årstid. Efter det, havde selve oplevelsen aldrig eksisteret.

Jeg var simpelthen bare her, direkte, umiddelbar, uden alle mulige interpretation og oplevelser projekteret ind i og over på årstider og vejr. Og resultatet var/er at jeg nu kan nyde alt vejr, alle årstider fuldstændigt ligeværdigt. Ovenikøbet åbner der sig nye dimensioner af f.eks. efterår som jeg altid har forbundet med depression og pludselig kunne jeg se alle farverne og sætte hele kredsløbet omkring fødsel og død i perspektiv på en måde jeg aldrig før havde været i stand til. Jeg stoppede disse mønstre i et enkelt øjeblik og jeg kiggede mig aldrig igen tilbage.

Jeg kan anbefale alle, uanset hvilken situation man er i, eller hvor fast man føler at man sidder, at springe ud i at applicere selv-tilgivelse og se for sig selv hvordan det er faktisk muligt at give os selv tilbage til os selv.

Welcome to The Dark-Side of 2012
http://annabrixthomsen.com/2012/01/10/w ... e-of-2012/

For eons of time humanity have looked up into the sky, the dark night filled with stars and seen the mystery of creation. For thousands of years we’ve speculated about what is “out there”. Astronomers have tried mapping the Universe, astrologers have tried to understand the connection between the Universe and our humanity, astronauts and Nasa have attempted penetrating the vastness of space and many a myth have been shared between generations in the light of bonfires under the stars.

We sit on this small planet among giants held in place only by what seems like a fragile force of gravity as though we could at any moment lift of the ground and float aimlessly into the darkness. For eons of times humans have created ideas to explain the universe and its riddles, many of which are experienced as spiritual or extraterrestrial, like the Planet Niburu or Planet X, The Galactic Federation of Life or the belief that we are ascending to a 5. Dimension. The year 2012 has equally become a part of global speculation and wonder.

In this blog series I am going to focus on the backside, the shadow side of the 2012 phenomena, which ironically is the events taking place right here on earth in front of our very eyes, effecting our very lives on a daily basis. Because while we are busy talking about what is going to happen “out there” or in between the weavings of the world, we are (conveniently) disregarding what is already going on here on earth.

It is convenient because what is here on earth is not pretty or magic or mysterious. What happens on earth does not bear witness of a sovereign, benevolent or intelligent universe that has a plan. So let’s for a moment, instead of ascending up into the universe, descend down to the earth and have a look at some predictions for 2012 that does not have to do with what is “out there” - and perhaps through that gain a better understanding of who we are, where we are going and how to change our Destiny.

Let’s begin.

The end of the Kyoto protocol in 2012

The Kyoto protocol was created in 1997 when it was realized that the climate crisis (that, already before 1997 when it was written could be seen) was potentially devastating for the earth, the climate, human beings and all life that is here.

“The Kyoto Protocol is a protocol to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC or FCCC), aimed at fighting global warming. The UNFCCC is an international environmental treaty with the goal of achieving the "stabilization of greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere at a level that would prevent dangerous anthropogenic interference with the climate system. The Protocol was initially adopted on 11 December 1997 in Kyoto, Japan, and entered into force on 16 February 2005. As of September 2011, 191 states have signed and ratified the protocol.[6] "[5]” (Wikipedia)

The basis of the protocol is that all the countries that have signed the protocol, agrees to decrease the country’s contribution to the outlet of greenhouse gasses that are potentially (and determinedly) destructive for the ozon layer. The ozon layer is a thin layer around the world that protects the earth from the UV rays projected by the sun. Without the UV protection we would most likely be fried in worst case scenario and in the best case scenario, we will see massive global warming (as we are) along with massive planetary changes, such as devastating nature catastrophes (which is also busy happening). Secondly it is predicted that the human created warming through the outlet of greenhouses cases is contributing to the global warming. This is not only threatening the life of animals and plants, but also us as humans and the planet itself.

Basically our human activity is harming the planet as a whole, through interfering with and not effectively co-existing with the natural climate. Remember that the earth is an ecosystem that is able to support itself through a collective collaboration between all life-forms, from little ants in the African desert to huge thunderclouds and rainforests. All life-forms are able to collaborate and ensure the earth thrives for what is best for all, except us humans.

Lots of huge meetings between the world leaders has been held about the Kyoto agreement and in 2011 Canada pulled itself out of the agreement. The US has not been complying with the agreement at all. In 2012 on December 31 the first commitment period of the Kyoto Protocol ends. So what is going to happen on the 31. December 2012 when the commitment period ends? Does it even matter if the world’s biggest nations and those that are responsible for the largest portion of outlet of greenhouse gasses do not take responsibility?

The Dark Side of the Kyoto agreement

This entire point is reflecting us back to ourselves, humanity. Because the nation states are us, the climate is us, the Kyoto agreement is an example of how we make half-assed agreements to change and then don’t or create backdoors to slip silently out of our commitments, so that we can continue living as though our actions had no consequences.
Each of us, participate in this every day in our own lives. Huge factories are creating cars, weapons, toys and furniture for the pleasure of the consumer-citizen along with the creation of traffic and thousands of people driving SUV’s so that they can feel safe and boost their egos or who’s houses are lit with electrical appliances to the point where even from outer space it looks like the entire earth is on fire.

So how can we let our lives sit in the hands of politicians and lobbyists that are given mandate BY US to make decisions on behalf of all of us, while blaming them for making such decisions, when all they are doing is serving the (self)interest of mankind – to keep consuming the earth and all that is here, until we burst into flames and crumble like a punctured crème brulé in an overpriced French restaurant?

And are we willing to give that up? And for what?

What does it take for us to be willing to stop what we are doing, to stop creating back doors to slip out of, to stop creating mental realities to escape into, to stop creating conspiracy theories about who is doing what to whom and how?
The responsibility lies in each of our hands and in the togetherness we create through our living together in and as this world and reality. The solution lies in the soil beneath our very feet and not in some fantasy reality in the sky high above.
It is easy to dream away into outer space and to imagine a solution where we can conveniently float away, leaving a scorched earth behind to wither and die as though it was just another piece of junk cast aside on our journey on the highway through the universe.

If we really want a ride of a life time, if we really want to see a universe of wonder and peace and to live adventurously in oneness with all that is here - we remain on earth, we get our feet back on the ground and our heads out of the sky and we turn our eyes to what is going on right in front of our noses.

2012 – Untangling the World – The Walk back to Equilibrium
http://annabrixthomsen.com/2012/01/11/u ... uilibrium/

In the Desteni I Process course we work with a specific technique of releasing patterns/personalities/constructs within and as ourselves that we’ve accumulated through years of participating since childhood and/or patterns/personalities/constructs that we’ve transferred and that has been transferred from our parents and ancestors into and as us.
This is what we refer to as “writing mind-constructs”. It is a mapping out of one or more patterns in its entirety so that we can understand how we have created ourselves and thus bring all points back to ourselves and from there stand up and change.

What is cool about writing mind-constructs is that we are using words as a form of math where we unsolved the equations we’ve equated ourselves into and as, but that we’ve miscalculated for and as ourselves. An example could be that I as a child was yelled at by my mother and because my mother represented my world and stood as a reflection of me, I did not only internalize the anger as my mother, but also started hating and judging myself because that was what my mother did. What I did then miscalculate was to take what another said/expressed/experienced personally, internalizing it into and as myself and from there literally building myself as a personally as someone to be yelled at.

This could then accumulate into various points of fearing conflict or creating conflict myself until the point where I would the face myself through writing out this point in and as a mind-construct. So when I am writing the mind-construct out, I am taking the total accumulation of that point, from the initial trigger and all the dimensions of the mind that has resulted into layers and layers of information as thoughts/words/feelings/emotions and memories.

What is so cool about the mind-construct is that we unfold this entire “ball” of memories and lay them out flat in front of us, not literally as a physical unfolding, but within the process of writing the point out in a specific structure that allows us to see all the minute details of how each point accumulated into the next.
From there we can then begin the process of untangling ourselves, because we have now brought back all the information in which the miscalculation and de-equilibration of ourselves occurred and we can start investigating the information to see exactly how we have created ourselves.

Imagine that our personalities, preferences, fears, desires and hopes are based on miscalculations we did when we did when we were children that we now keep miscalculating over and over again because we don’t understand how we have created ourselves. This is how we keep being addicted to certain substances or how we keep believing we are unworthy or keep falling in love with the same type of people that we know are not good for us, and how hard we try changing and how much we see the changes that are required, are unable to change.

This is because in our foundation of ourselves as personalities, there is a miscalculation and a point where we in that moment abdicated ourselves and that fear, desire or thought has now the full authority over and as us, because of our initial acceptance and allowance.

When we then write out the mind-constructs and walk through a pattern and realize these miscalculations, we then require to re-equilibrate ourselves and walk backwards to the point we missed, similar to when one does calculus and keep getting the wrong result and have to go back over each calculation to see what went wrong. We then re-equate the point by bringing it back to ourselves, now in understanding of “what went wrong” in self-honesty and self-responsibility as the creators of and as ourselves – we give ourselves back the authority of having created and accepted ourselves to exist in separation of and from ourselves.

So using the example from before, I can now bring the point of anger back to myself, how I have lived and accepted myself within and as this point, forgive it and prepare the corrective action for myself, to when I am faced with these and similar situations, can stop, breathe and simply not participate, until I am no longer attached to or existent within and as that point. I can now realize that my mother’s anger was her experience and that it was by me internalizing it, that I accepted it as myself.
From there I can also start seeing and realizing how anger exists in this world, and how patterns are transferred from parents to children and from us as personalities to the world as a whole. I can start taking self-responsibility for the entities and events that are occurring in the world that has its root in this exact same pattern. And as such we can start untangling the entire mess of miscalculations that is this world, from tiny disagreements over misunderstandings to wars and the economic system.
It is all started with a miscalculation, a misconception, a dis-equilibration and the only way we can sort out what is here, is to walk back, each step we’ve taken, individually as well as collectively to understand how we have created and accumulated ourselves in, into and as this world and from there re-equilibrate a new way of living, a new way of living that takes all and everyone into equal consideration, so that all life is at all times what is best for all. That is when the equation equates itself and we can start anew and decide who and how we are going to live.

Join us at Desteni and the Desteni Forum as we unveil the world and untangle the mess that we’ve create ourselves into and as. Investigate the Desteni I Process for yourself and see the transformation that is possible to be walked and that has been walked by the Destonians walking-with so far by searching “Desteni timeline transformation” on Youtube. Participate in the making of the Equal Money System that will be a new start for humanity and the world and join us at the Destonian Network as we daily share our process of walking ourselves out of the mind, and into and as the Physical Reality that is Here.

Visit EQAFE where we share the material in the form of books, interviews, art and music to support ourselves in understanding and taking self-responsibility for what is here.

Enjoy and let’s Walk!

2012 – The Dark-Side of The Fairytale of Parenting

How many parents do not feel like bad mothers and fathers, constantly existing in guilt and self-judgment every single day? How many do not believe that everyone else is perfect and well-equipped of being parents? And how many actually are? Welcome to the Dark-Side of The Fairytale of Parenting.

A couple of days ago I was walking home and outside the door to the apartment building was a boy at the age of three standing with his mother. The boy was playing on a rock covered in snow and the mother was standing a little to the side with her hands and face focused on her phone. First I thought about how it was not cool that she was preoccupied on her phone while the child was left to play by himself and I felt sorry for him.

Then it occurred to me that properly a lot if not most parents do actually not enjoy spending time with their children and that there are very few people who are either educated to teach children or who "naturally" simple enjoy it (often also because they enjoy the self-image of themselves as a parent.)
I started looking at how tough it is to be a parent and spending so much time not actually wanting to be with the child, but having to pretend that one is enjoying it, because otherwise one is classified as a "bad parent". It really takes very little before people are seen as bad parents and ironically it takes a very long time before abuse against children by their parents is being stopped by anyone.

So I was looking at how isolated parents feel and how ashamed they are and how they judge themselves for not actually wanting to be with their children, but they have no where to change this or even share themselves openly. Why? Because most people are able to put up a front of looking like they got everything (and everyone) under control, that they are oh so happy with where they are in their lives, even though underneath it all they sometimes regret even having had children.
The dream of a happy family that started off so promising with a man and a woman that loved each other and a love-child under way in a big fertile stomach, ends abruptly as soon as the parents realize, for real, that this - is for life. And the man is not the man the woman dreamed he would be and even though she knew all along, she pushed her gut-feeling away for the picket-fence dream. And the man realizes that the woman's body is changing and is not what he dreamed it would be and the woman who before wanted sex all the time, are now devoting all her attention to the child. And the child is screaming louder and more intense than either of them could have ever imagined and the anger and helplessness coming up inside them is so unbearable that they sometimes feel like they are going insane and they secretly wish that they could just get up and leave - some even do. And for the vast majority that is not rich, life is filled with money-problems and bills that seem to pile up like literal mountains of guilt and debt and powerlessness - and it feels like everything is just piles of shit on an otherwise shitty day.

It is the classic story, right? The Dark-Side of the fairy-tale of parenting.

And everyone knows it or have experienced it for themselves as parents or children themselves, this apathy and feeling like you're trapped in a nightmare of your own creation. And you don't really understand how you got there, because everything was supposed to be fine, once you got the man, once you got the job, once you got the house, once you got the child.
This is why there is no continuation to "they lived happily ever after..." - because deep down everyone knows that it is a crock of shit, yet everyone also insist on "giving it a shot" anyway, because maybe, just maybe this is the right man, the right job, the right house and the right decision to get a child just now that will make all the pieces of one's shitty life suddenly fall into perfect place and the birds will forever twitter in joy - NOT.

So - what is this? Because it is not some single man, woman or family who is participating in this - it is literally every single person on earth, (except for the few who for some reason have been designed with a different program to stand as a contrast and a teaser to show everyone else what they're missing out of.) who is participating in this "ride of a life-time" - of every life-time, where we chase a fantasy reality, perpetuated as real and realistically obtainable by virtually every single movie, magazine, newspaper and recording artist on the planet.

And by keeping up the charade, these fake faces with toothpaste add smiles and perfectly kept homes and bodies, for those who are even able to do that much, by telling each other stories about how much we love our kids and how blessed we are to have had them and how we have never regretted it for a single second, even though we do in silence every day - we keep this bullshit sugar-coated night-mare going.

So - it is time for some honest parenting. It is time for self-honest parents that dare share and expose and face their experiences with being parents. Parents that dare facing the Dark-Side of what it means to be a parent.

How many parents do actually enjoy spending time with their children? How many do not secretly wish that they never had children or feel ashamed that their children is reflecting the absolute worst in themselves? Why are these points never addressed or openly spoken about? At the Desteni Forum they are - and we bring all points back to Self - in Self-Forgiveness, Self-Honesty - so that we can Stand as Self-Responsible Human Beings and as examples for the generations to come.

The truth is that no-one has ever learned how to actually be parents, because how can we be intimate with our children, when we don't even know how to be intimate with ourselves? How can we enjoy and express ourselves with our children, when we exist in constant fear, suppression and self-denial trying to get the hell out of any 'authentic' experience of vulnerability and openness because that only make us face how we really feel inside. And we believe that if we were to face that, our worlds could collapse and we can't, we just can't. So we don't - and we keep pretending that everything is fine and dandy, just like everyone else. And we keep getting up in the morning and going into the hamster wheel we call "my life-choice" or "my career" or whatever we wish to imagine our life was like, believing that we say it enough, perhaps it will come true one day. It doesn't.

In the Desteni I Process, we walk-with ourselves and each other to support ourselves to become self-honest and self-responsible parents, to ensure that the shit we've been born into and have carried with us from our parents and theirs before them, is not transferred to yet another generation. And as such we put and end to the viscous cycle of the sin of the fathers and prepare the birth of a NEW humanity - a humanity that cares for all life, equal and one.

Self-Honest Parenting in all its Dimensions is the Pinnacle for the Birth of a New Humanity.
