From my friend Janis
When you are hopelessly lost and in the ditch, it's time to stop, look, and listen to what the birds and animals are doing. They are building homes, caring for their young, and all day long, they are eating and drinking. Have you ever watched birds bathing in the water? They are so joyous, daily.
When you are so lost, you don't have a home to live in, you cannot care for your children, you depend on hand-outs for your food and sustenance. You were conned into selling yourself for a few dollars, and look where it got you. No one to care about you as you slide into a deep, dark ditch.
I could go into a long discussion of how we got into this sorry state, but you don't need to hear that right now. What you need to know is the way out. It is as simple as crossing the street. You were meant to lie down in the green pastures, beside the still waters. God's work, building His kingdom, preparing a table on this critically abused earth is your job, your work. Thy Kingdom come, Thy Will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Jesus brought the message that it is up to you to establish the Kingdom of Heaven.

What is to be done?
Look to the birds and animals, the wild ones. First of all, no one owns them, they are not pets. Whereas you became the poodle for Walmart or Halliburton or Goldman Sachs, the giant multinational conglomerates. And look where it got you: living in a paper box under the bridge, scavenging garbage bins and dump grounds, searching for food, living in your car in Walmart parking lot. No one to comfort or care for you. Come unto me, and I will give you rest. The Kingdom of God is at hand. Did you ever wonder what the kindom was? Luke 17:21; Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is in the midst of you. Look to the birds and animals for the meek shall inherit the earth. "Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven." (Matt. 6:10). We can rattle the Lord's Prayer off like no one's business. But have you ever thought of the meaning? Christ states His purpose, i.e., thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Christ intended to establish His Kingdom on earth. What we must do, is occupy it, as our natural, God-given right. "The Lord is my shepard, I shall not want." I think we are talking about what you need to survive. What do you need? Earth, air, food, clothing, shelter, and love. "He maketh me to lie down in green pastures. He leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul. He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name' sake." It is time for us to occupy those green pastures, and build our homes among the birds and animals. We need to build a sustainable village and share the work and the living space and the fruits of our labor. The Beast tells you, you must pay for your shelter, your food, your water. The Beast tells you, you must live separately, and in fear of everyone. The only ones to fear are the Beast (Goldman-Sachs, Shell Oil) and its government agents. You need to live together, communally. Share the work, and the fruits of your labor. You are your brother's keeper, and he yours. Jesus was a communist and a socialist. He occupied the temple, the pastures, and the sea, and He drew large crowds of followers.
25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?
26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?
27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?
28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:
29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. (Matthew 6:24-29)
He told you that His way was easy and His burden light. He was telling you that you need to give up the money system and live instead in the Kingdom of God, which He came to establish on this earth. He suggested an end to capitalism and to live instead with a socialist system. For this He was crucified. Look at all the witch hunts we have had whenever people tried to live socially. They are hunted down and shot, only we don't call them witches; we call them terrorists. Christ came to abolish the violent, murderous money/market system and establish a peaceful socialist system, which He called the Kingdom of God.
20 And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation:
21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.
‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel’” (Mark 1:13-14).
"I must preach the kingdom of God to the other cities also, for I was sent for this purpose” (Luke 4:43).
Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
Let us go to farm and establish the Kingdom of God.
We have to reject money usuary Market capitalism, and instead live in socialist communes in the green pastures, beside the still water.
Occupy Wall Street had it right; they just picked a wrong location. They should have joined with farmers, with the intent of forming a self-sustained village of about 20 to 80 like-minded people. No small thing. First thing to establish is rules to live by based on the 6 elements. Remember what a person needs to survive: earth, air, food, clothing, shelter, and love which without any one of these necessities, a person will die. The same is true of a community or civilization. But we will start with a community, which is a living, breathing organism and has needs, just like a person, for its survival. They are:
common moral code of behavior
means of trade
means of passing on the knowledge
That's all. Without any one of these, that society will not survive beyond 2 generations. Funny thing. Native Americans had it right 200 years ago. Isn't it a kick in the head that we must now rediscover what the Indian way of how to live in order to survive?
