Soon it will be a year since I have not been working (due to baby and school). At first in feels nice because all the stress experienced at work in the current money system (due to shit just not functioning right to support the employee so that they are happy to do a job and expand their intelectual being).
However at some point is it get REALLY, REALLY boring having to stay home, do the regular chores, take care of the baby-while everyone else is at work. I do like spending valuable time with Victor, but when there is no difference in my day or I don't see anyone else, don't talk to anyone else (everyone is busy with their own "life" so to speak), everything I do is depended on the baby's schedule (eating, sleeping-so it is not to say that I actually can just get up and go out...), it feels kind of lonely and def dumbing as not much brain activity goes on in my day.
James has not been spending any time with Victor because he has been working those long days/weeks and managing school along with it. He has not had a moment to sit down and relax with Victor, read a book, play with the toys, feed him....the list goes on. It's not that he does not want to of course. And it is perfect example of showing the misbalance provided to us in this system of abuse.
Parenting is supposed to be shared so that one does not go crazy and lose it in a way that is not best for their baby/child (like ignoring him, letting him cry, not wanting to play with him..all the things that are needed to nourish the child/baby....that when one is overwhelmed and becomes annoyed just wants to cover their ears and not listen to what the child/baby is saying/telling them, yells at the baby/child as a reaction- none of that is OK).
I have been able to be pretty stable even when overwhelmed but that is because I am aware of my actions thanks to the Desteni Process, it is not to say that I don't experience being overwhelmed however I am able to recognize the energy of explosion within me and stop it. There are times however when it is hard to deal with this energy point and I go into "ignore all and everything mode". Not fun at all.
So where does one draw the line between the extreme of staying home and working all the time. It is sad both ways.
In the current money system one is required to work 40 hours if not more a week to be able to support themselves or a family. In fact, both partners need to work in order to support a family (from a mid to low economic status). The only reason I have been able to stay home is because James and I are living with his parents-so no rent/mortgage payment. If we were to move out- I will def have to have a job.
When so many hours are spent at work- one has no time to be with the people they live with because majority of that time is spent in separate places. People come home tired, some don't want to do anything while others push themselves and engage in various activities.
The problem with staying home (if one is able to do so)- is that it does get boring. You are not aligned with everyone else who is working. And after awhile it gets depressing. One can't even spend normal time with their partner (if they have one) because their partner is tired and has other things to catch up on.
My point here is that neither one is OK. It is not OK to over work- it is not OK to stay home and not work. When one works their brain is working-which helps with "brain production"...lol What I have noticed about myself is that I am more likely to engage in other activities if my day/brain had been working than if I had ALL day to do something and at the end of the day I question "what the hell did I do today that was productive?" A person needs/wants to be productive- no matter how much is it denied. I want to do something-work on something- be productive. That in my case is teaching. I have already graduated so I am searching for a teaching position. I want to engage with other teachers- work on projects-challenge myself. Over staying home makes me feel brain dead/no self motivation. Over working makes me want to take a break....and stay home...lol I mean it is obviously not the right balance in what this system has to offer us. It is NOT ok!
Many things and perspectives have been discussed within the EQUAL MONEY project/movement in the wiki section. Thus I am able to state that a balance will be established between work and other time to enjoy outside of work. And work will be something that is not stressful because the employee will be supported as they need and things will function to co-support the work place and the employee. Things at your work place will actually make sense. One of the biggest problem some people project and are against the EM is that no one will want to work. PLEASE!!!!! NO one will want to work? It will get really boring. At some point something clicks in a person and they want to contribute to society that will support what is best for all. Saying that no one will want to work is an excuse- because if everyone had the same amount of money to start with- work will no longer be a competition but a place where people team up to work together to create or sustain that which is best. NO profit- no competition- no cheating- no greed-projects are done to support that which matters the physical and in return the reward is we are giving the best to each other. It is not a hard concept to see- only if one is stuck in their mind and that which exists in the current money system. STEP out of that place and envision something you have never knew to be possible before! This is evolutionary.
The Equal Money Capitalism (EMC) was established as a medium point to lead us to the EMS. A transition step....and possibly for people to stop saying that EMS has any associations with Communism/Socialism or whatever has been out there before that did not work in what is best for all-just as Capitalism is not working out in the best of all BECAUSE the starting point was never intended to be that which is best for all.
I don't know about you, but I'd like to start living life and NOT surviving life. Life is to be lived not to be fought the battle of survival. Thus with the solution one will be able to go to work and love what they work- be enthusiastic about the projects they are doing because they will know that no matter what the project it will represent something good and supportive for society. I am willing to do that! I am willing to participate because the reward will be.....LIVING LIFE! Less amount of work time- more people will get a chance to work. EVERYONE will get a chance to travel and explore other places. No stupid borders to separate us. Earth is one house with different rooms- but we all share it. No one is better or less unless they are placed to be in such position. There is so much that EMS/EMC can offer in every sigle aspect that is affected by money today. At the moment it is just a movement-however I do hope I live to see it unfold and open. I would love to live in such a place and I would wish nothing less for future generations to experience this in fact.
I'd suggest to open your eyes and see what is in fact possible- reeducate yourself and stop living up to the expectations of what "can't be done and will not work"....unglue yourself from what you've known so far to be because it will only hold you back from seeing what CAN BE done and what IS possible!
What you got to lose? Certainly nothing in this system of abuse other than your ideas that create abuse...and support a system of abuse.
So people will have the time to be with the people they live with and spend actual time together, help each other with the babies/children- that is what bonds people together- the time they spend doing something together and sharing those moments with what is here.
