Economy is a way of thinking
At the forefront of the new millennium the human race is still a species in transition between the past and the future. Under many aspects is at the dawn of the conscience. This old humanity has an obsolete psychology founded on a conflictual logic, its rationality is armed and operates only through the game of opposites, and its civilization is still the product of war and of a predatory spirit. Even science is the product of the juxtaposition of antagonistic concepts: good and evil (ethics), beauty and ugliness (esthetics), truth and falsity (philosophy) etc.
As long as humanity remains a conflictual species -‐victim of fear and pain, poverty is economy, and crime is economy. The poverty and crime of vast regions of the world will continue perpetually until man’s reason remains armed, until antagonists such as poverty and wealth continue to fight each other, not in the world but in the conscience of every man together with good and bad, pain and pleasure, fear and love.
Economy is a way of thinking. The economy is the reflection of our way of thinking and feeling, of our convictions and of our system of values.
As long as the psychology of man remains ill, then war, poverty, crime and pain will continue to be the big pillars of the world’s economy. For this reason there is an economy of illness just as there is an economy of war and an economy of poverty. Legions of young people prepared in schools without love and without freedom, add themselves to the sad army of the adults and perpetuate the professions and the roles available in an economy fueled by pain and fear.
Thinking is Destiny. By our own way of thinking and feeling we have plotted our destiny until now.
Now, if we are capable to think in a new way, then we have the power to change the future. And moreover, we can change the economy and the financial destiny of an entire country.
All schools and all universities of the world perpetuate and spread the old way of thinking. They are the guardians of old humanity’s way of thinking and feeling whose pivotal element is the idea that death is unavoidable.
Believing and creating is one and the same thing only divided by time. Whatever I see is the creation of my belief…To believe means to create.
B+t=R / Belief+ time = Reality (Life or world)
If nothing else kills us before, then the idea that death is unavoidable will. This explains how still today a large part of the economy is the product of the industry of death.
The rationality of man is armed. His logic is conflictual. His psychology is incomplete.
For this reason our economy is still a primitive activity if not downright criminal. Old humanity knows only to gain profit from division, misfortunes and friction between opposites. Enormous machines like wars, genocides and poverty pushed by blind destructiveness, egoism and vanity have been, up until now, the only way known to man and to civilizations to move towards higher levels of progress and economic prosperity. Just look at what happened to the economies of the defeated countries, nearly completely destroyed by the World War Two: Germany, Japan and Italy. Unconsciously but periodically humanity turns on a destructive mechanism in order to move forward. It knows no other way.
The economy of the future, an economy of well-being must be created by men that love, by dreamers. To fight and win poverty in the world we must render bountiful our intelligence, nurture and elevate our being. Poverty and crime are illnesses of being. The individual must be overturned: he must free his psychology from conflictual thinking, negative emotions, especially from doubts and fear, and his conscience from scarcity. This is the individual revolution: a revolution of being. The slightest rise in your level of being moves mountains in the world of economy and finance, it can remove the historic poverty of nations and entire civilizations, and it can conduct eras of war and fear towards peace.
A new species, completely transformed is about to appear on the scene. A new man, the “vertical man” is the man that has broken the psychological vortex and the old ways of thinking that have imprisoned the old humanity. The new man has a complete psychology, free from conflicts and that does not see only through opposites but sees reality made up of different layers, the levels of being. The central role that education will have in the new era of man must be deepened and this is vital for the survival and evolution of our civilization. New schools and universities that are able to express a system of vital ideas in order to prepare this new species, a governing class free from conflicts, businessmen and managers capable to redefine the central concepts surrounding ethics, the economy and spirituality, a generation of leaders that are able to harmonize the seemingly apparent antagonisms of all time: economics and ethics, action and contemplation, financial power and love.
Special schools and new universities are needed. Their first task is to teach the revolution of being and at the centre of their attention and at the top of their every priority there must be the individual. The seed lies in the being of the individual. We have to start from within. It is a process inside-‐out just like when healing a wound.
Every other revolution in history has failed. True transformation, the solution to the millenary problems of man can be only be the product of a mental revolution. We have to think differently.
Who commits a crime or is poor has a distorted vision of the world. He thinks that the external world can make him rich and happy but the truth is that the world and all its events is nothing but the effect, the consequence, the shadow of being. The world is the projection of our way of thinking and the economy is the reflection of our values and our ideas. He who does not give attention to his being will not be able to prosper but is destined to lose his possessions, all that he has and also what he merely ‘believes’ to have.
Man is made up of layers. He can produce falsity and pain just as he can produce truth, beauty and goodness. We must teach how to bring forth his own uniqueness which the world as a consequence will reflect.
Only the individual can change society. The revolution is purely individual therefore it is the individual that must understand, harmonize and balance his being.
ESE is dedicated to the individual, to his intellectual and humanitarian preparation, which it puts at the centre of every activity. ESE teaches the Individual Revolution and is dedicated to the preparation of men that have omitted from their being egoism, conflict, poverty, prejudice and even the idea that death is unavoidable. It is for these reasons that they will be able to attract and create wealth.
Man is ready -‐ intelligence and love lie already within. It is visible in every student. The School does not have to add anything, but to bring to light their originality, and the beauty of their uniqueness. For this reason there is no need for external teachings. The root of ‘educate’ is ‘to take out’ : Ex-‐duco.
This has to be the main principle for a School of liberty, of self-‐knowledge… a School of integrity.
The school of the future has to eliminate more than to add on. To eliminate old structures, rusted concepts, obsolete ideas, to abandon preconceived notions, false sentiments, imaginary fears and identification, to destroy negative emotions, destructive thoughts and the certainty of death that has been rooted in every man since childhood.
