“We are perceivers. We are an awareness; we are not objects; we have no solidity. We are boundless. The world of objects and solidity is a way of making our passage on earth convenient. It is only a description that was created to help us. We, or rather our reason, forget that the description is only a description and thus we entrap the totality of ourselves in a vicious circle from which we rarely emerge in our lifetime … So, in essence, the world that your reason wants to sustain is the world created by a description and its dogmatic and inviolable rules, which the reason learns to accept and defend … from now on you should let yourself perceive whether the description is upheld by your reason or by your will.”
Carlos Castaneda

Tales of Power

Tear Yes, Step No

Another talk about our current money system and its shortcoming. It’s a good talk, though not a great one. One thing I loved about it … at one point the presenter tears a 20 euro bill and drops it to the floor as a symbolic act … yet for the remainder of the talk he continued to move around the torn pieces but never dared to actually step on them … actually avoided them quite a few times.

Symbolism is not enough … a long age of superficial symbolism contributed to our current story and it will take powerful intentions to overcome the superficiality and move beyond it to a better story.
