  1. Had my first near death experience this last July and the experience totally changed the way I see the world.

    I think you overestimate the amount of awareness in the public. Even at the occupy movements many didn’t really have a clue what they were protesting against, obviously some do get it, but I watched a couple of youtube videos of some protesters trying to justify themselves and it was embarrassing.

    I hope you are right though, I hope people do learn that money doesn’t buy happiness, at least I truly believe that, but how are we to ‘get out of money system.’ I’m not sure that is actually possible. I believe that you can get out of the control system by being as financially independent as possible, which is one of the reasons why I am here, but to do that you have to work within the money system surely because the alternative is just too hard would require you own land and livestock etc which isn’t possible for 90% of people.

    Am I understanding?

    Hi Alan, it would be easy to overestimate the numbers you are right. Being aware is nothing to do with GS and the money issue though, it is more to do with moving through acceptance of yourself through release of fear and anger. Near death experiences can mean anything from a messy divorce to losing a close family member, or a heart attack. The wake up calls tend to ground people and they end up letting go of old lives and consequently the programming that money does. If you live in a rural area this is the most effective way to kick start that and given what is going on in urban areas, I suggest anyone who is able to move, and as soon as you can. I don’t think we can underestimate how unpleasant this is all going to get and if it isn’t well at least you will have better views!

    Thanks for your reply Patrick.

    I agree, I think people do focus on the wrong things and I think you are right that it takes a jolt of some kind for most people to waken up. I hope more people comment on this post tomorrow, it will be interesting to see other peoples motives for being on this site for one.

    My own personal reason is that I don’t feel like being a slave to money, working your whole life for a company that doesn’t give a crap about you so you can have money to buy things that ultimately you don’t need. I think life is more important than that and if I am to spend my time doing something I would rather it be something meaningful.

    Hi Alan, that is great to hear, we all must slip quietly into the background and look after our own and take care of our future. As the distractions increase for the UK (presumably to cover up the rising agression towards Pakistan, Syria and Iran) “The Leveson Show” winds up with celebrities awash with stories of filthy depraved acts, which have course have been going on for years and we have bought these papers! It looks like the papers are the next victims of the 0.0001%. Presumably they are not required anymore to justify the sublime acts of the aforementioned. Public vilification means we assured of justice, just a pity it is 20 years to late, interesting timing though. Self rightious indignant celebrities are wheeled on one after the other to be watched live on the show (new daytime TV) so we can sympathise with them and stare goggle eyed and disgusted before we switch over to “Xfactor” and “I’m a celebrity” In the meantime we are asset stripped and don’t even notice. Whenthe poor behaviour gets as low as the companies we work for, we believe it is acceptable to behave as they do. Well, they stole from us so we can steal from them, no wonder our kids behave so badly. When we take responsibility for ourselves then we can help and support those closest to us

    Great words man, great words. Good will prevail over Evil it always does, just takes some time that’s all. With pain there is gain, with pain gain.

    Thanks also to Allesio for the great webinar last night I learnt so much in a short space of time.

    Thank you Tim, I completely agree this whole thing will backfire on them. The awakening will happen and without control with money (which they can’t achieve if they have all of it ironically) they will be lost. It is HOW we all react that will create how many suffer, sadly of course many will because many are already drowning in their own woe and misery I used to call cash. Alessio’s webinars are brilliantly narrated in such a clear way, he makes a complex methodology very simple.
