WITNESSING the unraveling of the global financial system, I find myself gripped by contrasting emotions. While part of me feels like heading for the hills and hoarding cans of sardines, another part of me is giddy, almost celebratory. The tyrannical rule of Wall Street is ending, along with the self-serving free market ideology of Neoconservatives. The massive amounts of fictitious capital created by our corrupt financial system must be destroyed, so we can address our immediate situation on this planet.

I feel sorry for the millions of people who may suffer during a transition that will be extremely difficult. On the other hand, our rapacious economic system is destroying the integrity of the biosphere, threatening our future as a species. Taking a wider perspective, we can see a new social structure that creates sustainable patterns of behavior is necessary, if we want our descendents to continue on the earth.

So where did the money go?

leave a comment »

 

By Bob Chapman The International Forecaster

Posted Monday, 9 March 2009 Source: GoldSeek.comThe following are some snippets from the most recent issue of the International Forecaster.

RECENTLY, a public radio host sponsored an economics professor from MIT. Since he was the former chief economist for the World Bank, you know that he was an Illuminist mouthpiece, a disinformation specialist for the powers of darkness.  He was asked where all the money went that has been lost by the tens of trillions in various asset classes such as real estate and the stock market. He was asked if it just disappeared into the ether, and he said basically that this is in fact what happened, like there were no winners, but only losers as the values of assets plummeted.  He does not want you to know about where all the money really went.

Sacred Geometry – an introduction

leave a comment »

SACRED GEOMETRY is an ancient science and a key to understanding the way the universe is designed. It is a “map” of the step by step movements that Spirit makes as it moves from pure energy into matter, to create the physical world as we know it. It is the “language” of creation which exists at the foundation of all life. It is these repeating geometric patterns that are the basic building blocks of our physical bodies, the plants and animals, the planets, solar systems, stars, galaxies and Universe.

Remembering Past Lives

leave a comment »

by Roger J. Woolger

From Roger J. Woolger Eternal Return (Unpublished manuscript)

How is it possible to remember past lives? A reply to the sceptics.

There is for every man or woman some one scene, some one adventure, some one picture, that is the image of our secret life, for wisdom first speaks in images and this one image, if we would brood over it our whole life long, would lead our souls,

distentangled from unmeaning circumstance and the ebb
and flow of the world, into that far household
where the undying gods await all those whose souls
have become simple as flame, whose bodies
have become quiet as an agate lamp.
 – W.B. Yeats

The visible world was made to correspond to
the world invisible and there is nothing in this world
but is a symbol of something in that other world
– Al Ghazzali

Oh, for an old-fashioned 10-month recession!

leave a comment »

By Bill Bonner   The Daily Reckoning  10 March 2009

The Daily Reckoning rides again… with more titbits… The economy is in the grip of a “depression dynamic,” says Bloomberg. For the first time since WWII, the global economy is shrinking, and it continues, led by the United States of America.

“Job losses hint at vast remaking of U.S. economy,” adds the New York Times.

David Rosenberg of Merrill Lynch looks that the numbers: There are now 12.5 million people out of work in the United States, a 25-year high. This is a lot more joblessness than the typical recession produces, he notes. “In just five months we have lost 50% more than we usually do in a classic 10-month recession.”

Oh, for an old-fashioned 10-month recession! This is not a recession at all – it’s a depression, in which the economy will be restructured, not merely re-inflated. In a speech yesterday, Helicopter Ben stated that a recovery would “remain out of reach” if the major financial institutions were allowed to fail. If the banking sector is stabilized, said he, a recovery later this year is not out of the question.
