Bitcoin. The Evolution of Money. Spirituality and a Revolutionary Medium of Exchange for a Free World.
For many people it may seem strange talking about Bitcoin, money and spirituality in one conversation.
There seems to be a general misunderstanding about the fact that ‘spiritual' has to exclude worldly affairs. People have been indoctrinated for centuries that a spiritual life has to be separated from worldly life.
Today, most people still make this mistake and therefore hardly ever manage to physically implement what they have achieved through forgiveness, mindfulness and meditation. In fact, as long as spiritual development is not showing in behaviour, it’s worthless! And this has to include everything in life, including money.
The separation of the worldly from the spiritual by religion has led to the ‘normal’ instead of the ‘natural’. In this way it became possible that ‘heaven’ no longer comes so easily ‘to earth’, that paradise remains utopia and that the influence of the Supreme on earth has been reduced to see the world we are currently experiencing, far removed from any real spirituality, joy and abundance.
As long as there is a belief that there is something ‘unspiritual’, this will continue to exist in our experience, the experience of fear, guilt and separation. Here’s a little shock for those who like to be caught up in a fairy dust esotericism: Everything within Creation, everything within Consciousness IS Spiritual.
There is no awareness, being, no place, no time and no circumstance separate from consciousness. If you see it differently, you postulate that there is something outside of all-encompassing One Consciousness, or Supreme State. Consciousness IS, it’s the primordial state of experience which is known by Itself, as Itself. nothing else within it, nothing else outside of it.
The primary purpose of life is self-knowledge, or self-awareness, the who and what am I? and on the way there can be complete enjoyment. So the key to the art of living is to embrace experience and to stay in peace, no matter what our experience is, including the existence of money.
Self-awareness encourages us to explore news ways of BEing and DOing which as a result will also be reflected in the material supply, for example in the form of Bitcoin and blockchains technology. It’s not appearing on the scene in these critical times for no reason.
There are a lot of ideas about Bitcoin, about what it is and isn’t. The core of Bitcoin is a network-centric, decentralised, peer-to-peer means for exchange. It offers an even field where anyone can participate, no hierarchies, no control.
It’s open source and offers anyone to have their own nationless, borderless private bank.
Some people wish to outlaw Bitcoin. These people don’t see Bitcoin as having any socially useful function and they clearly have no understanding of Bitcoin and blockchain technology.
You might as well argue to outlaw the disruptive movements like Uber, AirBnB and the internet as a whole. These people need to educate themselves thoroughly to not fall victim to the instinctive, human negativity bias.
Bitcoin is becoming more and more mainstream every day and it’s social utility is that it’s putting financial power back in the hands of the people for the first time since money was invented, and the ‘powers that still are’ fear it!
The true purpose of Bitcoin is to free the people from the clutches of centralistic banks, corporates and governments.
Cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoins are not meant to glorify greed, but to explore the possibilities offered by such technologies in order to make life more joyful with more time for oneself and for the community.
Money is widely misused an expression of control by the institutions in power. So far, the power has been with a few who use coercion and violence against dissenters to maintain that power. Since Bitcoins is a medium of exchange that functions decentralised like the Internet, it cannot be easily controlled or shut down by a central point of control.
Anyone can buy and exchange cryptocurrencies without a controlling power. Since the current system is entirely based on the exercise of power over money, violence and misinformation, especially Bitcoin offers the possibility for the people to take their power back.
This can also be seen as an intermediate stage to a free, resource based economy, in which we will no longer need any means of exchange.
Consider what is possible with Bitcoin if you are still negatively affected by the current system. I recommend that you do you own due diligence, contemplate, meditate and connect with like-minded people.
We can evolve only with a clear mind, a peaceful heart and harmonious decisions and let’s practice making decisions based on what we need rather than what we want.
