HEALING THE INDUSTRIAL WOUND WITH CONSCIOUS BUSINESS
By CC Treadway
I hear Mother Earth’s call every day. The enjoyment from spending time with her fills me from the inside out. Then I hear the call of Father Sky, the Universe, and the call from other species in the Universe, our relatives from abroad. I feel the call of technology and progress pushing me to new heights, making it possible to connect with those relatives. Then I feel that familiar block, the one that says technology and progress is killing the planet. And I stop moving forward.
THE INDUSTRIAL WOUND
The industrial wound is preventing us from moving forward into our future. But to trace our reluctance for the healers to commit to being part of society and financially empowered, let us go back, way back to the time of the Roman/Catholic Empire. The brainwashing that has been done cannot be underestimated. Caucasians were brainwashed into thinking their ancestors were barbarians and savages, to the point that they completely cut off from their genetic history. They were also brainwashed by the church that being wealthy was a sin. The belief if you did God’s work, you could not be wealthy was rampant. The Catholic Church and royal families were laughing all the way to the bank.
Over the generations, the brainwashing was so complete that no one wanted to be a barbarian, but no one wanted to be rich either. That was for a select few royalty, and in those times, no one but the royal families had any hope of being wealthy. Of course an association of wealth with cruelty would be embedded into our minds. The religious royalty made all the rules and created a society based on taxes, debt and persecution. The tribal people were forced, or eased into a passive financial mentality against their will or unconsciously. It was like dying of carbon monoxide poisoning. Before they knew it, they were simply asleep. Sound familiar? It’s righteous, evil genius, and it has happened all over the world.
When emigration of Europeans to the Americas began, the Europeans were already a conquered and brainwashed people, completely convinced their lifestyle was the right one.
And yet the democratic society is based on the Iroquoi government. Even Donald Trump honors this in his book, “Why We Want You to be Rich.” It’s a good read, by the way. However, due to the persecution in Europe, the one vast improvement in the creation of the United States was its ability for people of all backgrounds to rise up and create what they want. Anyone could be wealthy if they wanted.
But, so utterly convinced of their superiority (due to their previously mentioned brainwashing) most were happy to do away with the natives they met. So convinced that tribal people were sub-human, they also felt completely justified in having Africans as their slaves. Their connection to their tribal roots been severed already and replaced with religious and cultural doctrine. This continues today. It makes it very hard to be proud of being Caucasion in today’s world. And yet the recollection of that pride, from the ground up is what we need to heal.
Here we are now, in the land of opportunity, the United States of America, allowed to move up in class and wealth with no connection to nature or our roots. The energy of free human beings cannot be measured. It’s happening today in China. But when the industrial revolution hit the US, energetic Americans had no idea how to handle technology in a sustainable way.
Our natural instincts to be in harmony with the earth were eradicated, but our natural instincts to create, invent and grow were exploited. At least both weren’t destroyed.
What we find through the Druid and Celtic revivals is that our European tribal ancestors were wise, were similar to the Native Americans that were alive and well upon the arrival of the Europeans. Druids were awakened to the relevance of their own history when they learned of the native peoples. The awakening of the memory is further released through ceremony with nature. The evolution of these instincts occurs when we do not reject our technology and economics, but infuse the new system with our connection to Mother Earth. Tribal life meant a lot fighting to protect lands and clans, the life force and energy was raw and alive. As romantic as that sounds, most people nowadays would prefer peace and freedom.
There is no way, with our natural instincts to be in harmony with Mother Nature, that we do not collectively feel guilt around our behavior. This can polarize people into denying it or trying to fix it by rejecting technological progress. But where did this urge come from to usurp humanity’s connection to itself? Some would site it to an extraterrestrial race with selfish interests in Earth and humanity. But where is that force coming from? Were we created as a slave race? We don’t have the answer to these questions, we only have choices in this moment. It’s easy to blame an outside source for our problems, easier even to blame extra terrestrials. I only know that the way out of slavery comes from empowerment, from overcoming hatred, victimhood and blame, upshifting our vibration and evolving the game to a level of truth.
There is another way to come out of persecution, and that is for those with privilege and power to take responsibility for that power and use it wisely, inspiring those in poverty and victimhood to rise up. You can be the Abraham Lincoln of the 21st century, or you can be oblivious to the power that you have. Leadership takes work.
WHY CONSCIOUS BUSINESS?
It's simple. Those with the most money have the most influence on policy. I’d like to be in the game to make a positive influence. And all people, women, men, black, white, tribal, Asian etc., can do it now. I’d like to play big.
I recently stayed at my fathers place in New York City, I had spent so much time rebelling against my economist father, that I had never bothered to read any of his thousands of books on the subject. My father, Peter Treadway PhD, in an extremely successful and respected economist and fihistorian. While I may sometimes think my father experiences life primarily through money and numbers, I only had to read a few chapters of a few books to feel like an uneducated dummy. What I concluded was that everyone should be economically educated and wealthy. The effects of economics on societies and culture is so significant, we are completely disempowered if we are not engaged.
Poor people are passive in their approach to money. Rich people are active.
By default the poor good guys feel like they are fighting the rich bad guys. And that’s just so boring by now.
Healers, artists and activists, this is where you get to fit in to the new world. And don’t act like you don’t want to. We all want to feel we belong. We all want a positive role for our gifts. Business and economics are the most influential forces on humanity in the physical realms. We must join in, evolve our finances and work with innovative technologies that will save our asses. Commerce is the place of action for your good intentions, money its vehicle. Money is the easiest way to manifest, it's better to have some. We are scared of it because it’s that big, and because it means we can’t hide or make excuses anymore.
From my heart, you are needed in today’s world.
Your sensitivity, compassion, intuition, artistry and vision are the sustainable energy of the future. Your conscious infusion into our system is lighting up the world. The days of lightworkers being the unsung heroes are coming to a close. We need you to step out and be seen and become so normal that you are not persecuted against. Your gifts are necessary to take humanity into the future. We need you to take responsibility and embrace our system as your own. We need you to face your fear of rejection or persecution and step out, because now more than any time we have ever seen, the creative expression of your essence is allowed to manifest in service and prosperity. You are no longer alone, you no longer have to be on the fringe, penniless with a few trusted friends. The community is global now, and is integrating. Healing technologies are bursting on to the scene from everywhere, the shift in perception from slave to master is upon us. Our time has come.
