I recently read that over the next 20 years, 50% of our jobs will be replaced by automation. While this might terrify many, I see it as a giant leap into a new paradigm—a Utopian reality in balance with Nature.
Not surprisingly, multiple countries are actively participating in pilot projects centered on the idea of a universal, inalienable basic income available to every human being.
Of course, some critics and analysts might balk at such a grand gesture but from my perspective its time has come. Our nearest neighbor, Ontario Canada is piloting such a project as well.
What this entails is that every human, child included would receive a monthly income regardless of their function in society, eliminating the current welfare and unemployment programs that are now so ineffectually in place—restoring people’s dignities and offering so many, especially creatives and entrepreneurs the opportunity to work towards their ambitions absent the need to work for their basic needs first.
Imagine, if your basic needs were met, what might you be inspired to create?
So much suffering exists because of class warfare and income inequality. As the tides shift within governments and financial institutions around the world, the insistence that society find commonwealth amongst one another steadily grows.
Civil unrest is a burgeoning issue and the potential for catastrophic consequences looms unless, a new paradigm is introduced. Automation or technology is here to serve us—we no longer need to animate the mechanisms of society like we had to during the industrial revolution.
As we are observing, our climate and environment are hanging precariously on the brink of an untold number of irreversible consequences. People are waking up to the illusion of mass-manipulative marketing and hyper-inflated consumerism.
We are space-age and soon, civilian space travel will be reminiscent of commuting to work each day. Communities and countries are enforcing food-waste bans and ensuring that all are fed. Humanitarian efforts are on the rise—unlike anything our species has ever witnessed.
Take away the inflation bubble (BRICS) and the need for war as enterprise along with the introduction of renewable energies and a spiritual uprising and we have the recipe for a new way of thinking, acting and co-existing with all life here on this planet.
Like anything else occupying such a vast scope, a basic income is a double-edge sword. There will be resistance, setbacks and failures while it’s continually refined but eventually the potential for a finely crafted system of checks and balances can come to fruition.
It requires the voice, motives and influence of the people to help usher in such an idea.
Over the past few decades, this protocol has been tested and studied extensively. It was found that the majority of people who participated soon became more ambitious, able to focus on their dreams without worrying about having to pay their bills or put food on the table.
For artists, creatives and entrepreneurs, this opens the door to new innovation, broader spiritual enlightenment and the potential for another renaissance period.
Automation is everywhere. Each year, we see new advancements in robotics and A.I. (artificial intelligence). We have entered the light age where the possibility to create things that not too long ago were thought unimaginable are now center-stage and at the forefront of a budding futuristic reality.
As I noted, despite the convenience of technology, we must however never forget to balance life on this planet with spirituality—the all-encompassing phenomenon that still eludes so many yet pervades all of creation. Beliefs change our reality and if we are to imagine this Utopian galactic society, we must also brave the powers [that were] seeking to destroy our nature for profit.
We are the stewards of this planet and our buying power speaks. This I’m sure is becoming more and more prevalent in the minds of elephant journal readers as an example. Our voice is our influence and there’s never been a time when a global race has had the opportunity to rise as one.
Philanthropic entrepreneurs like Elon Musk are paving the way beyond this post-industrialized age into the ever-growing civilian space race, a global satellite network beaming internet to every region around the globe and the introduction of electric vehicle transportation.
These are exciting times and we have simply grown beyond the need to struggle just to make ends meet—effectively ending an era of fear-based incentives and segregation of the human race. The more that people become aware of the wondrous opportunities that lie at our fingertips, the sooner we can empower ourselves, heal the human predicament and thrive for the first time in recorded human history as one race of humans in accordance with the grand scheme of a constructive, expansive universe alongside all of creation—both here and abroad; beyond the cosmos.
Remember the illusion of scarcity is just that—an illusion. Governments will bend to the will of the people so long as our voices and actions are synchronous. As we mature in this dawning new age and our elders (Rainbow children) are re-born here on this Earth plane, the time to abandon what no longer serves rests solely in our hands—we are the way-showers.
Someday, we’ll be a moneyless society and unnecessary commerce will be largely obsolete. There will be vastly more to live for than monetary, material or superficial gain. We will indeed be an enlightened global society—led by a hierarchy of influence, not promises or hope.
