Ubuntu contributionism and co-creative consciousness
Zerohedge on March 12 featured an interesting article in the news. The title is “Most Limits exist only within our minds”. It tells the story of recently deceased Roger Bannister, the first human to run a mile in under 4 minutes.
For more than 3000 years it was thought impossible that a mile (1,61 km) can be run in under 4 minutes until Roger did it on may 6, 1954.
More important however is the fact that since that day more than 1300 people have run the mile in under four!
In the context of Roger Bannister’s achievement I would like to introduce a concept that might similarly be considered impossible to achieve by some.
This idea goes by the name of UBUNTU CONTRIBUTIONISM and is a vision of a society that functions free of money in any form.
You may be familiar with Ubuntu as the name of the open source computer operating system that has been around for about 14 years or so.
The name for the open source computer operating system was wisely chosen, because “UBUNTU” is a commonly known African noun, and translated into English it means “humanity” or “I am what I am because of who we all are”.
It is not a new word. Archbishop Desmond Tutu as well as Nelson Mandela have widely used the concept of Ubuntu and even Barak Obama is familiar with the concept.
The concept of Ubuntu contributionism, however, was conceived by Michael Tellinger, a South African researcher, scientist and specialist in vanished civilizations.
I had come across Michael Tellinger while researching the science of resonance and its application in science and healing. At the end of the lecture Michael introduced his work into Ubuntu contributionism and the concept of a money free society. You can watch the documentary here.
Something in Michael’s presentation struck a cord within me and I decided to learn more. I went into his website and ordered his ebook “UBUNTU Contributionism: A Blueprint for Human Prosperity”.
After reading the book twice, I realized (of course) that even the concept of a money free society is very radical. It makes sense, but it is utopian.
I became very interested if something like this had ever been done before in human history.
I found out that the late Inca society had a money free society that was razed to the ground by the Spanish conquistadores under Francisco Pizzaro in 1532.
I then checked several interesting breakaway societies that are still alive:
Here is what I found:
DAMANHUR: In northern Italy there is Damanhur, a society of about 600 people. Damanhur was inspired and established by Italian visionary Oberto Airaudi in 1976. Damanhur’s philosophy visualizes a society where each individual can grow into their full creative and spiritual potential. Damanhur has created their own currency, the ”credito”. In 2005, Damanhur was recognized by the UN as a model for sustainable society.
FINDHORN: Findhorn was created by Peter and Eileen Caddy and Dorothy Maclean, three ordinary people with a deep connection to nature. Findhorn has grown in popularity and houses somewhere between 200 – 500 people. It has a similar philosophy than Damanhur and is very deeply connected to the earth. Findhorn uses both € and their own currency the ”eko”. In 1999, Findhorn was recognized by the UN as the best practice for an Eco village project.
AUROVILLE: Auroville was created in 1968 by Mira Alfassa and was meant to be a society based on the enlightned teachings of Shree Aurobindo. In 1980 the Indian government started interfering into Aurovilles autonomy. Because of financial discrepancies. The current governing bodies are comprised by both Aurovillians and the Indian government. Around 2500 people live in Auroville, the local currency is the rupee. Auroville is UNESCO recognized.
RAJNEESHPURAM: Rajneeshpuram is part of my own history of which I will shortly talk a little more. Rajneeshpuram does not exist anymore but for the time that it did it was an excellent example of what is possible when people come together and become creative. We used the US dollar as our currency.
There are other alternative societies that have been very well established within existing societies such as the Mormons, the Quakers and the Amish. All of these groups are based in the christian belief system but feature distinctly different societal behaviour patterns.
What was clear though was that most of these so called “alternative societies” were or are based on spiritual ideals, which then manifest as “alternative societies”.
UBUNTU contributionism, however is the first political movement/ philosophy that introduces a concept that is based on no money at all.
Before I go deeper into the philosophy of Ubuntu contributionism, I feel it is a good idea to tell a bit about my own personal experiences with communal living and why I consider Ubuntu as a valid, if albeit, utopian vision of society.
I grew up in post WW 2 Germany and often played in the ruins of bombed out houses.
My father died when I was quite young and as my mum needed to make money, she worked night shift as a nurse. That naturally left me little kiddo roaming quite freely on the streets with a key around my neck. In short, I was pretty free.
I naturally connected with a lot of other kids and by the time I became a teenager it was clear to me that communal living was the only way to go. So I became very used to living in small communities with people that had similar ideas than me.
Of course, we did not just live together for economic purposes; we also talked a lot about politics and everything else that was important in life. And we all had a lot of energy!
We decided to change the world by entering politics. We created various group initiatives, mainly aimed at improving the lives of youngsters like us. We organized ourselves and took our ideas to the local council, to see what could be done.
Approved or not, we started occupying houses that were earmarked for industrial destruction; we demonstrated in the streets and we held talks with local politicians, all with varying degrees of success.
For instance, most of the houses we squatted were never destroyed and we did actually manage to receive some finances to create activities for the young.
The main thing though was that we had a lot of fun. We all learned a lot about friendship and the power of taking combined action. In other words we started using our co-creative consciousness without knowing that that was what we were doing.
I remember that throughout this whole period I was left with a sense that it is actually possible to change societal structures by taking united action.
However, in the years that followed I got more and more disillusioned with the snail pace changes that society appeared to be content with and decided to turn all my attention inwards.
I earnestly started searching for who I really am. I started meditating, I learned Tai Chi and martial arts. I started doing yoga and decided to go to university to become an artist, because being crazy like van Gogh or Gauguin sounded cool.
By the time I was 25, I had about 6 years of academic studies under my belt and I was very fed up with the way things were going.
I had previously visited a Kibbuz in northern Israel (a fascinating experience) and had the sense that something really needed to change, but could not quite see what.
I knew that not only something needed to change in the way I was seeing and conducting myself the world, but also in the way we were all living together on this planet.
My experience in Israel had taught me that it was actually possible to create completely different working societal structures if there are enough people that can agree on it.
I was so disillusioned with the art/money world, that I decided to drop out of university as I could not see myself staying there even one day longer. I started traveling the world in search for something more real.
After many very interesting experiences were I had opportunities to join Sufis in Instanbul, study Kriya yoga or become a monk in Dharamsala, I eventually ended up in the Rajneesh ashram in Poona, India in 1979. An ashram traditionally is a community of like minded people, usually under the guidance of a spiritual teacher.
In those days, Shree Rajneesh (later Osho) had the reputation of being an enlightened master and was very unconventional in his approach to life, to say the least. I absolutely loved it and decided to stay.
I joined the ashram, got a new name and went through several months of intense psychotherapy to break through many layers of suppressive German upbringing that I was still identifying with (in those days pretty much everybody who joined this movement was required to go through different layers of therapy)
I remember this time as both emotionally very intense and painful, but also enormously gratifying and enlightening process. It needed a lot of guts and not a little craziness to be part of this movement. In other words, I felt right at home.
And there were a lot of us. Group consciousness was very strong and people generally were very supportive as everybody went through similar processes to become free of societal conditioning.
We danced, we sang, made love and created a very practical and functioning infrastructure that was doing financially extremely well.
Our aim was simply to enjoy life to the fullest, break through any psychological barriers and find out who we really are once stripped of all societal conditioning.
I worked in the ashram for about 1 ½ years until Shree Rajneesh decided to leave India (which was mainly because of security reasons, as we were told, because his life was threatened on more that one occasion).
Up until that time, the ashram had hundreds of residents and at least a thousand visitors daily who nicely kept up the infrastructure of our community.
Somebody had told Rajneesh that America is the place of all opportunities, so sometime around 1982 the Rajneesh foundation purchased a large piece of land in Waco county, near the town of Antelope, Oregon. This was a beautiful ragged, partly mountainous land with beautiful valleys and an enormous potential to build a city.
And build a city is what we did. We were absolutely convinced that we had all the potential to create a model society for the future.
Rajneesh himself informed us, shortly after we had settled there, that he felt that he had done enough and decided to go into a state of silence. He subsequently handed the day-to-day operation of our budding city over to a handful of close disciples. As it turned out, this was a huge mistake with many serious repercussions, including his own death.
For about 2 years we experienced a staggering growth period; we build many sustainable houses and miles of roads trough the mountains. We had barns, farms and livestock. We built vegetable gardens and had two very large community kitchens. We even had our own airport and airfleet. Looking back at what we achieved is incredible.
Unfortunately, at this point, those few disciples that had taken over the day-to-day organization of the city felt they needed more political control and started running for county elections.
Running for county elections is a fair enough thing to do, but our group decided to apply various criminal methods to influence a positive outcome for our city. Those included poisoning the neighboring countie’s food supply and even a premeditated assassination attempt. In the news it was branded as the single largest bio terror attack on American soil.
* For me it is still incomprehensible that anybody who had understood and followed the teaching of Shree Rajneesh could have ever truly considered the actions that were taken, and I still feel to this day that those individuals who did this were inserted into our community – a practice not unheard off in the United States. It is indeed interesting to learn that although the individuals that were responsible were sentenced to 20 years in jail for committing the largest ever bio terror attack were released after 29 months on probation for good behavior!
Rajneesh himself was forced to break his silence and appear in court to defend himself against the allegations that were made against him and the perpetrators of the crime.
He eventually tried to flee the country in the end of 1985. His jet plane was intercepted before it could reach international airspace in North Carolina and he was put into various prisons before being returned to Portland.
(He later claimed that he got poisoned in Oklahoma prison with the heavy metal thallium, which most likely was the cause of his death a few years later)
Shortly after the criminal proceedings had been settled, Rajneesh was deported from America and went back to Poona to continue his work in his original ashram.
Osho Rajneesh died in Poona in 1990, age 58.
Up until the time that Rajneeshpuram was dissolved, however, within the short period of three years from 1982 -1985, we had been hugely successful in creating an alternative societal structure with more than 4000-5000 people living in an overall area of 265 km2.
And it was not only what we achieved.
For me personally, the time we spend there together, creating a whole city, was also a time of incredible self-discovery that would never have been possible without all the people that participated in this grand experiment. As impossible as it may sound, one of my deepest transcendental experiences (samadhi) came not while sitting in deep meditation under some tree but right in the middle of a very intense working period while I was operating a bobcat in the mountains.
I left the Rajneesh movement in 1990, immediately after Rajneesh died. The reason was simply that to me, life moves on. In my understanding, the moment a spiritual teacher is dead, his or her teaching is starting to gather spiritual dust, while life is every moment new.
After the death of Rajneesh, I went back to put all my energies into going deeper and deeper into the mystery of life within me. I consciously decided to leave the world to it’s own devices. I stopped reading newspapers, watching TV and generally had no clue what was going on in the world.
Now that you know a bit about my personal history, it is easy to understand that i feel a deep resonance when i hear Michael Tellinger speak about Ubuntu.
Not only does his vision match my own vision of an achievable better society, it also resonates with my own experiences of what can happen when many people utilize their co-creative abilities together and start doing things.
I would like to talk briefly about 9 aspects (out of many) that Michael Tellinger is elaborating on in detail in his book.
A BLUEPRINT FOR FREEDOM AND EQUALITY
The Ubuntu contribution system is a blueprint for a new social structure in which everyone member is absolutely free and equal.
To me, the Ubuntu philosophy comes very close to what I visualize as being the ideal societal structure of the future. I say very close, because if feel that there are aspects of society that we cannot even think about at this stage of our evolution.
I have been dealing with the concept of a golden age society for quite some time, and I feel that the Ubuntu blueprint is an important step toward that society.
b) Freedom and equality:
Currently, the concepts of freedom and equality are very much misused by a small number of individuals for their own personal gain. Freedom and equality are ideological and political catch phrases that in this money controlled world have lost a lot of their true meaning.
In truth, FREEDOM AND EQUALITY ARE BOTH INCORRUPTIBLE COSMIC LAWS.
The way I see it, we, as a species, will never, ever be able to evolve into a higher form of consciousness without living in a socioeconomic structure where everybody is truly free and equal.
To evolve as a whole species, we would need to reach a critical mass of consciousness in the majority of people living on this planet.
In other words, our collective co-creative consciousness will have to be sufficiently aligned and in resonance.
At some stage, we will need to realize that we are all individuals in a great group of other individuals which all influence each other.
From what I observe, this critical mass is rapidly growing every day.
Every day, many, many,many people have had enough and are not only “waking up” to the truth and reality of life, but actually are willing to make the practical changes that are necessary.
Eventually, it will come down to the courage and intelligence of each individual, as each individual living on this earth will have to change in more than one ways.
It will require that each individual is willing and able to pass through many layers of mental, emotional, psychological and spiritual indoctrination.
This process will be very challenging, it is definitely not easy and is definitely possible.
(And it is also definitely more fulfilling, more adventurous and enjoyable than the robotic 9 to 5 lifestyle, that promises much but delivers very little.)
The challenges we face require to be willing to step out of the comfort zone and to embrace the possibility that what we today see as impossible, will at some stage be a truth that is as obvious as the fact you have two arms, two eyes etc.
And one of the greater challenges is to be able to envision a life where the concept of money does no longer exist.
A MONEY FREE WORLD
The Ubuntu contribution system functions without the concept of money, any form of barter or trade, or the attachment of value to material things.
A world without any form of money! (let that sink in,please)
Losing money brings up the most deepest fears in almost anyone who has money and who has worked to accumulate a little of the stuff.
Many people are willing to listen to new ideas and great concepts, but whne it comes to paying for it..
The truth is that we have become addicted to money.So why is it so important in our lives?
To understand this point you have to look a few thousand years into the past.
According to this great documentary by Niall Ferguson the first traces of money are clay tablets from about 7000 years ago. It was around that time that the concept of money was consciously and surrupticiously introduced into our society in very insipient effort to enslave humanity forever.
Simply, the moment money, or anything else that represents money, was introduced, it created those that have money and those that have less or none. It created a class system that was endorsing slavery, violence, war and injustice for those that were the most powerful and the most cunning.
Money is a masterpiece of manipulation and is working extremely well. Today’s world is almost totally controlled by money and by those that print the money out of thin air (the banks).
Isn’t it true that everyday huge amounts of your and my time will be dedicated to making enough money to pay the bills, pay the rent or mortgage, get the kids through school or pay for health care?
And if you are a bit better off, you may have enough money left to have a holiday here and there and buy whatever trinkets you can only buy when you have enough money.
But money not only takes up large chunks of time in our daily life; it also creates an addiction to money and addiction to anything you can buy with money. It creates an emotional dependency on money and just like any addiction, those that are addicted tend to not stop anything to get more of the stuff.
Insufficient money can create such low self-esteem that people are even willing to commit suicide because the value of money is the only value they know in life.
On a political scale, money and power craving leads to the pathological exploitation of others and war between nations.
If you want to make mountains of money, start a war or create a bank.
Did it ever occur to you that the stockholders of the pharmaceutical industries will get insanely rich the sicker we are?
But then again, how would you feel if someday somebody comes and threatens to take your money away? Wouldn’t the very idea of this ever happening to you, cause all sorts of resistance and emotions, especially if you have some money and have worked your butt off to get it?
The funny thing is that money is not necessary at all in a world of ideal and real values.
The real value of life is the people, their love for each other, their intelligence, their honesty, their joy, their laughter.
It is people that live on this planet. It is people that work on this earth. So it is only natural that people should govern this planet, not money.
If you ever take the time and do the research, you will find out that everything that every individual on this planet needs, is abundantly provided by the earth.
There is enough energy, warmth, food, love, creativity and shelter. These are the things we really need.
For example, we have known for a long time already, that free energy is available. Devices have been built that use water, magnetic energy, gravity, vaccuum derived energy. Every single one of these is suppressed because those that earn money buy selling us oil, coal or nuclear energy fear the loss of power and money.
There is already an abundance of technology available that could make this planet a heaven on earth. And one day it will be.
So give your creative thinking a chance and take time to ponder if a system like Ubuntu is possible and what it would take for you to make it happen. Don’t reject the idea, just because it sounds too incredible to be true.
DEVELOPING NATURAL TALENTS AND SKILLS FOR THE BENFIT OF ALL
Ubuntu it is a culture where each individual is encouraged to follow their passion and contributes their natural talents or acquired skills to the greater benefit of all the people in the community and society at large.
The focus in an Ubuntu society is on developing individual skills, a passion for life, to be inherently creative, to enjoy life and to love.
Last week the great physicist Stephen Hawking died after spending most of his life in a wheelchair. One of his greatest insights was:
” This would not be much of a universe if it wasn’t home to the people you love”.
Everything that is done in Ubuntu is done for the good of everyone, for every single individual, for the people you love.
The Ubuntu vision is of ONE LIFE, a life without division.
A life where every member of society is listened to and valued for his/her contribution to the whole.
By now you might think that UBUNTU certainly sounds like a good idea.
But you might also still ask: Is it not TOO futuristic? Too much of an utopia? Is it really worthwhile spending time on something so outrageous as a vision of a society without money? A world inhabited by people that are able to love who thet are and what they are doing?
Well, would it help to take a little break and listen for a few moments to the vision of John Lennon?
THE HIGHEST LEVEL OF SCIENTIFIC AND TECHNOLOGICAL PROGRESS
Ubuntu is a society which promotes the highest level of scientific and technological progress.
You might not believe it, but If it comes to science and technology we are currently still living in the dark ages.
For every one of the iPhones, Mac’ses, Windows’es, apps and other technological trinkets that have been released to the public, there are a huge number of technological advances that we have never ever heard off.
I believe there already are advanced energy technologies out there that make our petroleum based and nuclear based energy systems look like barbarian efforts to rape the earth.
There are healing methods out there, utilizing stem cell technology for example, that can reconstruct whole bodies, parts of bodies or even regress ageing. Here is a nice video about stem cell research featuring the actor Mel Gibson, who was able to a save his father by utilizing this budding technology.
There appear to be even ways to create nutritious food that does not involve killing anything; neither animal nor vegetable. These technologies are “replicator” technologies. I have not seen these tecnologies but, from what I understand, these are based on elementary reconstruction.
Why is it that we have not heard?
Partly because these technologies are used by “secret” military projects and partly because we would not be interested in wasting our money in old out-dated energy prodcution systems, if free energy is available for everone.
In Ubuntu societies, all technological advances will be available to everyone, because whatever is developed belongs to all the people.
“Imagine all the people….”
LIVE LIFE TO ITS FULLEST
Ubuntu is a society in which arts and culture flourishes and which allows people to live life to its fullest.
When you talk to people and you ask them what they would really like to do with their lives, a good percentage will tell you: “I want to dance”, “I want to paint”, “I want to write” or study something that is fun. I want to be creative.
Here comes the good news: Everybody who lives in an Ubuntu community will have much more time to do so as living in an Ubuntu community requires only the contribution of 3 hours per day of a “labour of love”, plus another three hours per week spend in a community project.
This means you have a lot of time available to be very creative.
Only three hours per day? Yes, if we would work more, we would be in danger of over-producing things.
Can you see how much of our time is wasted because we work for a few multinational corporations who are getting rich and richer?
So, there iwill be a lot of free time. What you do with that time is up to you. Spend it as you wish, paint, sculpt, meditate, dance, make love, do yoga, martial arts, build cars, fly planes, go diving or whatever makes you happy.
And for most individuals, such as me, I would love to work more than 3 hours per week for the community anyway, simply because it is enjoyable to do so and hang out with the people who are my friends.
A RAPID RISE IN CONSCIOUSNESS
This is a magnificent life, a vast mysterious cosmos that has a common source and a definite purpose. We are all here to find that purpose and realize the source of life. For that we will need time.
The idea of spending many hours a day in spiritual contemplation is of course well known from the many monastic traditions.
But why only in a monastery?
Why not man and women penetrating the mysteries of the cosmos together? There is love between people. That love can move mountains if you make it a priority.
Ubuntu societies are designed to give you plenty of time to penetrate the mysteries of the universe and share what you find with everybody else.
A true education system based on the true values of life, of course. A true education system will be make makes people more loving, increases intelligence, increases honesty, joy and laughter. True education will teach how to utilize technologies in harmony with the earth, for the people by the people.
Our current education system is based on competition. We learn form early in life that competition is fun and really good. So we learn how to compete against each other in mnay ways.
We cramm information into the childrens heads unitl they almost break under the stressful load. We then regurgitate what we have learned at exam time and then quicckly forget becasue most of it is worthless information.
The winners are the smart ones or the storng ones. Thise are the ones that get good jobs in society and earn a lot of money. The rest are educated of to serve those that are smart and strong and rich.
The winners of the competition will feel more valuable and truly think that they are better people, more intelligent citizens.
They get paid enough to prove it and then perpetuate this same insanity so change, if it ever happens is burried in bureocracy.
Those winner are the ones that often go into politics an dtry to change things. However, when faced with true changes, they tend emotionally aggravated and will go to greta length to prevent change.
Can you not see that our education system is aimed at producing smart, educated slaves that are conditioned to keep up the bame of money and power?
How about children and young adults that are truly intelligent, self confident and creative? Those that think and act outside the box?
In a more true educational system, students will be encouraged to study life, study the earth, learn how to keep healthy from an early age on.They learn how to grow and eat nutritious foods and how to love eahc other. They will learn about consciousness and about creativity. Children and students will learn how to communicate honestly and openly and how to express themselves without being censored and judged.
By the time this happens, we will need to be willing to review and update pretty much everything that is taught in our schools.
For instance, many current mathematical models are not working very well when trying to algin the Nwetonian worldview with the the quantum world. In medicine, there are many out-dated and frankly dangerous hypotheses that need to be adjusted to what medicine and healing could really be.
We will need to update and teach about the true history of our species and will need to be willing to re-visit our cherished religious beliefs, some of which will not any longer hold true in the face of reality.
We will need to cerate a student/teacher – teacher/student environment where students learn from the teacher and the teacher learns form the students.
One of the main key concepts of Ubuntu is that of “ONE SMALL TOWN”.
One small town that starts this way of living can have a huge domino effect for the whole world, because it demonstrates that this way of living is actually practically possible and is not just a dream born out of wishful thinking.
Ubuntu is a seed of consciousness and that can grow in small communities.
Why small communities?
Because small communities have the ability to stay transparent.
Lack of transparency is what creates huge problems in our current societal structure.
How can you possibly oversee what is happening in a society of millions of people?
In these societies of ours many people lie, steal, cheat and exploit. Some are forced to that while others chose to or enjoy it.
Some few are so good at it and have become so ruthless that they try to get away with the most absurd crimes against humanity, mostly in the exploit of money and power.
Large cities tend to become cesspools of violence, greed, exploitation, corruption and injustice. Open any newspaper, any day and read about it.
There is really only one way to change this situation:
BY TRANSFORMING ONE INDIVIDUAL AT THE TIME
One individual, who has woken up to the truth and reality of life will talk and interact with other individuals. These individuals will form a group and every one of them will talk with many other people. Eventually all these people can form a small community. Small communities work as blueprint for other communities were people realize it can be done.
LAW IN UBUNTU
The famous constitution of the United States starts by saying “we the people…..”.
What a wonderful idea!!
The fact that the United States as we know them currently have managed to thoroughly corrupt this important vision, does not mean that it is not true.
Yes, we the people should govern the country that we are living in. It is our planet on which we were born free.
We the people should be making laws and rules for the people.
I live in Finland. Finland is officially a corporation as you can see here:
In fact, most countries in the world are corporations.
So, you are not really living in a “country”, you are living and working for a company.
This means that the law system that is officially set up “by the people” is really a law system that is set by up the corporation (your country) and will enforce rules and regulations that benefit the corporation.
So, although you are born free, the moment your birth certificate is signed by your parents, you fall under the ownership of the corporation.
You agree to the education system, get bullied into mandatory vaccinations, you pay taxes, you get a passport and do whatever else the corporation tells you to do. If not you go to jail or pay heavy fines.
Is this the only way to go? No.
A true judiciary system has to be set up by the people in such a way that it truly serves the people and not just a small number of individuals that smart enough to exploit others who do not have the time or the expertise to understand the current judiciary jargon. it needs to be transparent a treat everybodu in a just and fair manner.
In an Ubuntu society, because there are only small communities were nobody owns anything, every community will have slightly different rules and regulations according to the needs of the community.
Here are the three main laws that would apply to any Ubuntu community:
• Never, ever commit violence toward another member of this or any other community
• Never, ever steal or take that which is not yours
• Always conduct yourself honourably and honestly in all that you do and say
You might ask at this stage, has ever anybody tries this?
As it turns out, yes.
There is a small township in eastern . They are starting small and you can read about it here.
At this point you have read quite a lot about some of the main ideas behind Ubuntu.
If you are interested to learn more, I woiuld suggestt o go to Michael Tellingers website and either order his paperback book or download the ebook version. You can also become a member (its free) and receive weekly emails, informing you regularly about what is happening in the movement. You can donate if you feel to do so, or you can hook up with others.
There are already people in Finland that are joining together and you can find them on the global connector page in the Ubuntu website.
And if you are interested in hearing Michael Tellinger explain the latest updates about Ubuntu you can do so here.
The last part of this blog is for those that doubt that any of this can ever happen.
Yes, it is absolutely true that the diversity of the people that occupy this planet is enormous and that it will be difficult to get people to resonate with such a great vision as UBUNTU
Not only do we have different races and nations, we have different religions, different traditions and vastly differing value systems.
We have really smart people, intelligent people and not so intelligent people.
We have men, women and children.
We have many people that are deeply traumatised in all conceivable way that will be terried by this idea nd try anything to ridicule it.
Some popel simply don’t care as long as they are lfet in peace.
We still have class systems that strip people of their natural human rights.
We have deeply ingrained emotional patterns that will object to anything new and rather fight than change.
We have people who think they are better than others and those that hold on their money with the skin of their teeth.
We have those people that are so deeply conditioned by the system, that life is nothing more than a robotic lifecycle from birth to death, with a few birthdays and public holidays in between.
And then we have violent minority of war mongering sociopaths and organized crime.
Yes we do have all of those. That is our starting point.
In the face of all this seeming adversity haw can it be possible that an innocent, loving vision like Ubuntu contributionism can take root and thrive in a society like ours?
IT CAN DO SO BECAUSE OF YOUR CO-CREATIVE CONSCIOUSNESS
At this stage in evoltuion, there are many, many, many, many beautiful people out there that have woken up or are in the process of waking up to the truth of life.
Everyone of these people is a light giving shing with love and warmth and support.
These people will be moved to connect with each other. They will share ideas, share visions, like I am doing right now.
People will form networks of goodness, courage, wisdom and strength. In my own life, I ma surrounded by the most beautiful people.So it is just a matter of time – not an if, but a when.
* I am reminded here on woman’s day. A few days back I went into facebook and it happened to be woman’s day. I was just amazed about the courage and love women give to each other. The strength and support! It was beautiful. I’d say we men can really learn a lot from women’s sense of togethernes, caring and love.
Please remember – one individual at the time. YOU are that individual. Talk to the people about how beauitful life is. Read the blog that I am wrting once a month. Its purpose is to give all the practical ways to liv love in your relationships, in you work and wihtin your self.
Let’s put our co-creative consciousness to work and then see what happens.
Take time from your busy day and imagine – you will send out a signal that will connect to other people like you.
Here is another song from one of my most favourite singers, Jon Anderson:
In this life, everything is possible because everything is consciousness. I am consciousness, you are consciousness, the whole cosmos and everything in it is consciousness.
One big, incredibly large pool of consciousness with billions of individual creatures sharing it.
Consciousness is co-creative – so much so that every single particle in the vastness of the universe affects everything else.
You and I are not just bystanders in this amazing cycle of life, we are co-creators of our reality.
You and I do it all together.
And if we can think it, we can create it.
Thank you so much, Michael Tellinger, for sharing and working so tirelessly for making this vision a reality.
Thank you to all the people that are willing to put their life energy into this and make a dream come true.
Finished at exactly spring equinox 2018!
