SITS -- Compersion: Is The Gift of Happiness our way to a Moneyless Society and Golden Age? TEDxNewHaven - Charles Eisenstein

Compersion: Is The Gift of Happiness our way to a Moneyless Society and Golden Age? TEDxNewHaven - Charles Eisenstein
January 22, 2013

Once again, Justin over at Stillness in the Storm successfully takes the most burning thoughts directly from my consciousness and translates them so beautifully in another amazingly relevant post. This whole idea of a moneyless society is thought of a as a long shot Utopian fantasy for many I'm sure. I simply see it as a natural evolution away from what doesn't work, merging into one that compliments the harmony of who we are as souls within. Money = control. Plain and simple. I love how Charles Eisentein says that "even small acts of kindness, have a HUGE effect on the world," oh so very true. Imagine waking up to a world where comperion is common place, separation is replaced by Unity, scarcity is obsolete, making abundance the new standard for all embodiments the world over....because THAT folks is where we're headed. ~BK
I found this video do to a Caller from the One People show today and found it had a great message to share regarding the power of Giving to transform this planet.

A moneyless society is something I think is totally attainable, within a short term period because we already are doing so much for 'free' already in our lives simply for the reward of giving it. Do you charge someone on the street for directions?

Brian Kelly shared a great video discussing this in the post Amanda Palmer -- The Art of Asking -- A True Exchange of Value.

Compersion, an empathetic act of filling yourself with joy simply by observing the joy of another, is a wonderful term for this idea. (Thank you Brian for sharing this with us!)

I couldn't help but notice the word Compersion also looks like the word Compassion. And Compassion has the word Compass in it. Maybe the people who developed the English Language where trying to tell us something? Maybe Compassion and Empathy are the Compass or guide to higher consciousness and global peace?

I had a thought, wile listening to the show, that Compersion is going to be the thing which will enable us to enter a moneyless society. Think of it!

Instead of people being forced to get a job to earn a living (what nonsense!) we can simply find our highest joy, and give that to everyone who is willing to receive it. That may sound crazy at first, but when you consider the diversity of BEings on earth and how many different ways each BEing creates happiness via their DOing, it is easy to imagine everyone switching over to doing their highest joy, and all our worldly needs being met. That doesn't mean challenges won't be present, but as we move through them, we will be growing within by leaps and bounds, living our highest joys at the same time.

Amanda Palmer enjoys making music and performing, and there is a willing group of Beings who wants to co-create that experience with her, giving their energy to her willingly. That energy comes in many forms, and money is one of them. Money is simply a tool, and despite its effects in the world being arguably negative, it is we who empower these symbols with our energy and our DOing which make that so. Money in this case, is literally a symbol for the fans to show their love and appreciation to Amanda; a complete exchange of value. The joy experienced by each in this instance of giving is much better then the feeling of being forced to do something. This is the key!
