Amazing Grace

The song Amazing Grace was written at sea by a slave owner. He had an epiphany. He suddenly saw that the true course of action was to set his slaves free. This is much harder than it seems, because we Westerners have become very dependent on remote controlled slavery. And to be quite honest, I don’t think the slaves would cope with a sudden change any more than an animal held in captivity can suddenly be released to the wild.

To set your slaves free is the only true course to set yourself free.

Changing your own life so that you are less of a slave is curiously unfulfilling. Because you are still using slaves. Fighting for laws to abolish slavery doesn’t really work either, does it ? It just abolishes slavery from view. We now live in a world where we use slavery almost daily, but we believe slavery has been abolished.

Bondage is slavery.
Money is held in bonds.
Money is debt.
Slaves and masters are bonded together by debt. A slave master owns and owes his slaves. He has taken from them, he owes them.

I think the entire human race is bonded together by debt, but there is a nasty sort of debt and a nice sort of debt. One blocks love, and the other is love.

In West Africa, there are tribal people that stay connected through the bonds of debt. They always maintain debts between themselves, so that there is always a relationship, a bond, based on what is owed. To pay off a debt is to clear the bond, and end the relationship.

This is mirrored in the Western world by watching how couples that break up seem to have a sort of ceremony of returning each others things. To return each others stuff is to end the bond. Those that want to maintain the bond are reluctant to settle the debt, and usually hang onto something.

We are all bonded to the Queen through her debt to us. All money is debt, IOU notes (Please see The Queen’s Debt). We can (eventually) get out of this by not dealing in money. The Queen seems reluctant to do this, and so are we, but the bondage to her can be reduced by reducing the amount of money you deal in, or by circulating money without it going through the banks, and maybe eventually writing off her debt to us. (See Jesus and The Taxes).

The slaves are always owed. The master is always indebted to the slave. The Queen is indebted to her subjects. Slaves are bought and sold to create an illusion that the slave owner does not owe anything.

“I owe you one mate”. People owe each other favours. People never forget if someone did something for them, maybe saved their life. “I am indebted to you for saving my life, if you are ever in need….”

Harry Potter sets his house elf free by giving him an item of clothing. It is a symbol of the slave master giving something he owes back to the slave. The bondage of slavery is now broken. We can help set Santa’s elves free by reducing our Christmas time consumption.

You take the freedom of the slave, you owe it back.

The bonds of our human social world are created by debt. Without debt, we do not relate. We become separate and solitary. Perhaps the biggest debt of all is the one we owe to our mother who carried us and laboured to bring us here. It seems to me to be the biggest human pair bond of all. It is a bond of love, a labour of love.

But you don’t have to repay debt to the one who gave it you. Like money, the debt can keep going round and round through many hands.

A friend in need is a friend in deed. Someone in need is an opportunity for human kindness, kinship, bonding. If something goes wrong in your life, all sorts of people step in to help you out, and this creates a bond of debt. People don’t want to be bonded to other people so they bond to money instead, take out insurance policies, employ remote controlled slaves through the bondage of money.

Money is a debt that blocks love and isolates us from each other, only relating through the central debt controller, the banks and the Queen.

Those that understand how the debt system bonds us are intercepting it for their own greed, to profit and control, whilst never repaying the debt. Almost everyone in the Western world is doing this to a certain extent, usually unwittingly. This system creates perpetual slavery somewhere else. The bankers are controlling all the favours and serving we do for each other, and thereby controlling our kinship.

I do not go to work just for the money. I find that to serve and help others, even in paid work, is often very fulfilling, and bonding. It creates a bond of humanity. Serving and helping others goes wrong when it is driven by money, and free will is lost.

I think there are two types of loan, hard and soft. I no longer deal in hard loans. If I have spare money to loan someone, I have spare money to give, it doesn’t have to come back, I am not going to chase it up, or demand it. Then if it does come back to me, it comes back freely given, as a gift, given with love. Otherwise it will get passed on, the same £50 going round and round, serving many purposes for many people, many times over. A hard loan is the one the banks do. Hard loans block love, and create a slavery sort of bondage. Soft loans are given with love.

One day, with more practice, this soft loan way of living may lead to just purely gifting, with no expectation of anything in return, other than that the love will be passed on to where it wants to go. Because if everything is truly gifted, then everything that passes between us is merely a token or symbol of love. If everything is gifted this way, then slavery cannot exist, paedophilia cannot exist, wars cannot exist.

This is idealism, because you can’t force everyone else to behave like you want them to, that’s slavery ! Nor can you judge others for not behaving like you, that’s religious and acting God like, and it blocks love.

But what you can do, what is within reach of everyone, is to be the change you want to see in the world. Practise what you preach, no need to wait for others to do the same. Practise starts in very small slow clumsy steps, and as you practise more and more, it gets easier and easier.

Amazing Grace
How sweet the sound
that saved a soul (wretch) like me
i once was lost
but now am found
twas blind but now i see.

It was written at sea, lost at sea, found at sea, and I find that water flows like love, always finding a way. Love of water helps us find our way back to love.

    love of water reminded me of this http://schauberger.co.uk/living-water/
    Western society has no respect for water; we use it for transporting inappropriate substances, and we waste fresh water profligately. We destroy its complex structures and its inherent energy by driving it through turbines, pipes or straightened riverbanks.

    Many indigenous people treated water with reverence, as a sacred substance. The naturalist Viktor Schauberger called it a living organism, insisting that in its various forms, as blood, sap or biological water, it is the basis of all life.

    As a young man, Schauberger had a remarkable experience while sitting by a rushing stream in his pristine Alpine refuge. Listening to its vivacious music, he intuited how water needs to move and behave in order to stay healthy, which was to inform the ground-breaking research that earned him the title of “the Water Wizard”. Water needs to flow in a particular dynamic way, and must not become over-heated.

    Movement and temperature are the key criteria for water, and therefore for all life. Still water is passive; it is amorphous and apparently lifeless. As soon as it begins to move, it is filled with surfaces that define little structures, convoluted in form, and with dancing vortical shapes. The nature of water is to move. When it is active it comes alive; in movement it fulfils its potential, which is to bring life.

    In classical times water (and wine!) was stored in egg-shaped amphorae, because the egg shape stimulates fluids to move and circulate, which is why Nature uses it in emerging life forms.

    When it is immature, water takes, absorbing minerals with a voracious appetite, to give back the much-needed nourishment to its environment only when mature as a mountain spring. A number of researchers claim that water has a memory;3 when we think we have ‘purified’ water of the chemicals and hormones we have mindlessly thrown in, in order to make it ‘safe’ to drink, the energy of these contaminants remain, polluting our energy bodies in the same way that chemicals affect our physical bodies. Because of its nature, water sacrifices itself entirely to the environment, for good or for ill.

    Living Water

    In order to maintain its quality, water needs to behave like it does in a natural stream, dancing and cavorting in spirals and vortices, or in the ground, constantly moving sinuously in capillaries or circulating within its storage chambers. In a youthful stream water is most active, producing vortices down the stream length, which act like the river’s immune system.

    The vortex introduces more complex molecular structures that can carry higher etheric energy which will drive the pathogenic or harmful organisms to the water’s edge where they are immobilised by the aggressive oxygen (see diagrams below), to be recycled later.

    Schauberger built a wooden pipe with guide vanes to create a vortex to replicate the stream’s natural vortex. The following diagrams4 show its longitudinal and cross sections:

    Viktor Schauberger created this wooden pipe to demonstrate how a slower flowing river has a longitudinal vortex running down its centre; the coldest part of the flow being in the centre. He added guide vanes to create torroidal counter-vortices to transfer impurities to the pipe walls. They also act like ball bearings to enhance forward movement.

    A cross section of Schauberger’s pipe. The action of the torroidal vortex concentrates pathogenic bacteria round the pipes walls, where they are destroyed by a positively charged oxygen concentration. It acts like the river’s immune system. .

    People mocked Viktor when he insisted that water behaves like a living organism. When it has reached maturity water displays amazing properties. He showed how, when it is vibrant and healthy, it pulsates, twists and spirals in a very specific way that maintains its vitality and purity, enabling it to fulfil its function as an energy channel and a conveyor of nutrients and waste for all organisms.

    If you watch water streaming down an inclined road after a shower of rain, or a rivulet on the sloping beach running into the sea, we will notice how it pushes down in a jerky rhythm, as pulsations. That is because water is alive – it actually does pulsate, just as blood pulsates through the veins and arteries of the body.

      Thanks Paul, that is a lovely piece about water. I do not like the word AQUA, I think it means sanitised SQUARED water. Swimming pools are always square shape. We are constantly warned against the dangers of drinking spring water and swimming in rivers, but I find that this is the best way to relate to water. I am still swimming in the river now in late october, and it is exhilarating, like a recharge of electric energy. Done in the right way, it does not feel cold (though a thermometer would say otherwise) The sound and smell of natural water is “amazing” too. It seems to stimulate all the senses. Probably because we are made of mostly water, water is our kin.

      People are instinctively drawn to water. Tanks, reservoirs and plumbing are all ultimately unnecessary, but the blocks that prevent people getting access to river and springs and sea need to be removed (such as private land next to water). In days gone by, women would carry water in curvy female shaped earthly ceramic urns, the shape is important !

        and we live in square houses

        what shape are tipi’s and cob houses

      • suliwebster says:

        It always upsets me that the “International development” people want to convert Africans to SQUARE. Their round huts don’t accommodate the square furniture very well, especially the square marital bed.
        The original gypsy caravnas are all very curved, and even most narrowboats still have curvy roofs and sloping sides, though unfortunately I see more and more square boats appearing.
        It definitely affects our energy.
