International Writers Magazine:What
Fulfilling Prophecies of Greed, Fear and Doom
the beginning, the money orientated greed god said; let there be
greed and yay, it was good. Well, maybe not good, but it sure felt
good to the housing cartel of owners and estate agents who were
feasting on an upward spiraling market. It also felt super good
to the investment banks that were hatching out leveraged collateralized
notes on falsely valued homes with little or no down payments and
low interest payments for a few years.
House prices doubled
and trebled. Trophy homes sprung up on the mountaintops and the hallelujah
avaricious chorus of high-pitched prices echoed in the valleys below.
All too soon the gilt began to fade on the exterior rhetoric of the
experts who inaccurately stated... it will be different this time. As
prices began to tumble experts began to realize they had been duped
by their own cleverness and intellectual education that never taught
the meaning of wisdom. Still, they stated all will be well and prices
will recover soon, while keeping their fingers and toes crossed.
Then the greed god directed his flock into the hell pits of the commodity
markets. The self-acclaimed experts once again sang the praises of greed
god's doctrines as oil prices accelerated to $147:00 a barrel. The fact
that there was never a shortage was ignored.
And yay, again it was good for the greedy few who knew how to use lies
and propaganda as true facts. Many other essential commodities played
follow the leader and as the greed grew, people in poor counties began
to fight for a bowl or rice.
Still, the stock markets were still doing ok. The USA consumer began
to feel the effects of insane gas prices as it moved from $1:00 a gallon,
huddling to $4:00 a gallon, in a couple of years. The USA economy slipped
into a mild recession without anyone noticing. As the USA economy
slowed, the expert choirs began to sing the praises of the economies
of China and India, chanting the world economies will do dandy without
the USA. They vocalized companies will still earn big profits from outside
the USA as the rest of the world is booming. Yet again, the intellect
experts articulated ... it is different this time.
All too soon, the greed god took off his crown and robes dripping in
diamond and pearls... Quietly, he snuck back to his hovel, where he
eternally lives in his true garb of rags and tatters. On his way home,
the fear god, who was racing to earth to inflict his erroneous powers
on the gullible and susceptible educated experts, crossed his path.
Once he sat on his thorny throne, the fear god employed every educated
trick in his book to teach the intellectual experts how to contaminate
the public with fear-laden reflections. In droves, the fear mongers
began to pollute the TV and newspaper audience with their inept expert
advice and unsound opinions. Many of them were the same experts who
once sang the greed god's praises and now growl the fear god's doctrines
in dulcet tones.
News began to break that investment banks had been hoodwinked by the
greed god, who was nowhere to be seen now. The banks began to falter
and drop like ten pins in a bowling ally. Where once, greed reigned
supreme, fear now was at the helm. People realized not all was good
it was bad. In fact, it was rotten to the intellectual core and was
never a good education.
Governments around the world met and stated they will all work together
for the betterment of all. Well, my dear reader, this is the story so
far, in a nutshell. The god of doom is getting his horses out the stable
and hitching them on to his chariot of condemnation.
If you buy into the misrepresentation of the mythical gods of greed,
fear and doom, that feed expert opinion, you may be in for a burdensome
few years ahead.
The media experts, producers and anchors can and do manipulate the minds
of naive people who view or listen to their programs. This is because
media experts, producers and anchors believe in their own educated cleverness,
which exists outside the realms of their instinctive and intuitive intelligence.
They really believe what they express is sound until it is proven unsound....
They will then declare the opposite of what they first expressed in
the past, as if they never uttered it. Confusing aint it?
It is no wonder people are confused and do not know how to protect their
hard earned savings. If you follow the herd of misguided experts, then
for sure the doom god will soon be knocking on the door of your conscious
mind, requesting permission to infect your mind. Fortunately, there
are a few high-ways of authentic information that can protect your sanity
and keep the door to doom closed.
Panic buying or selling always leads to large losses.
Decisions made by greed and fear will lead to doom laden anxiety.
If you are still following the advice of the experts who got
you into the confused mess, the doom god may take you to an early grave
in double quick time.
There is a switch on the radio or TV that turns it off, discover
the benefits how it works.
Get out of the habit of listening to the fear mongers.
Everything good, bad or indifferent passes with time and this
too will pass.
In every human being, there is a spirit of love & joy
that can weather any storm in harmonious tranquility and peaceful grace.
That is the only true channel of authenticity to be aware and tuned
A simple person understands when enough is enough and never goes hungry
for authentic counseling by a higher power; whoever or whatever they
deem that to be. However, a person who does not know when to stop consuming
will always go hungry for more and more. This type of person will always
be in want and lack the real treasures of heaven and earth.
