Is Austerity a Natural Consequence Of Our Spiritual Evolution?

Thousands of people took to the streets of the Spanish capital Madrid recently marching against austerity – reduced public spending to curb excessive debt. They were inspired by the ‘ultra left' swing in Greece; the new government is now threatening to renege on EU bailout debt. You may not necessarily be interested in economics, but if you consider yourself spiritual, this is a big ‘red-flag' to underlying phenomenon especially important for the evolutionary movement. We really need to grasp the flow of universal energy, because this is shaping the world on the surface right now, developing a growing impact on all our lives…

The Pie has been Baked too Big!

It would seem that the Spiritual Mainstream view about austerity, is basically that the ‘elites' are creaming off the profits at the expense of the masses and we need a revolution to rebalance equity and fairness – “Let's abandon these harsh austere measures. Let everybody have their slice of the pie.” Sounds great right? Well hold on just a minute. There's another way of looking at it: not the soft, popular or easy option, but I put it to you, one that's actually much more aligned with the natural flow of life.

Why are these countries like Europe, America and China so deeply in debt?

Well since we've been focusing on the Greek election in Europe, let's take a peek into their recent history. Greece abandoned its currency (and with that apparently it's common sense) in 2001 when it joined the Euro. It's financial institutions were essentially deregulated and the people – who now had credit cards for the first time – went on a 0% interest free, spending spree of luxury goods. There was a massive upsurge of debt fueled consumption; an abandoning of the more frugal farming sensibility of the past.

So now everyone expected their Armani suits, Rolex watches and latest generation iphones, together with all the electronic paraphernalia of modern day life. Like a hopelessly over-engineered Ferrari, Greece slipped into top-spending gear and rocketed into the capitalistic fast lane. No surprises then, when just a few years later, this souped-up band wagon has run out of gas!

Austerity is a part of the Natural Realignment of Gaia

This a powerful metaphor and vitally important lesson for the rest of the world to hoist on board. The spending spree is fundamentally no different than any other developed nation on the planet – they've just taken a little longer to get there. We're living on the borrowed fuel of our Grandchildren, to produce the excessive goods we really don't need and raping the planet bare in the process.

I do believe a Spiritual Revolution is necessary and will happen; however, it's not just about everyone getting their slice of the pie; it's realising we've baked the pie way to big in the first place.

Austerity is a part of the Natural Realignment of Mother Earth, having to deal with a consumeristic burden that's gotten way out of control.

Why is it that we have the elites and such inequity in the first place?

To me it's all to do with the level of consciousness from which mankind is emerging. There's been – and still very much is – an abrogation of personal responsibility. People have given away their power, of the constant conscious choice, in return for an easy, ‘civilised' life. Why graft in the olive groves when you can simply walk down to the nearest convenience store? An office life is easy, comfortable, it's everything the majority aspire to.

Never fear, Spiritual Revolution is here!

I believe Spiritual Revolution will come in due course. I observe it is already beginning to happen. It's fueled by the Shift in Consciousness of Gaia herself. But it will take time, as people steadily shake off the sleepiness of their karmic history. But at this early stage, don't expect the masses to make a sudden leap. Actually they don't need to for the shift to gather pace. All it needs is for the first wave of awakening people to begin the Transformation of Humanity – what some might call the ‘hundred monkey effect'.

It's also vitally important to state, I believe with or without the majority,
Gaia will transform this planet into a Fifth Density Reality.

I put it to you that several things are currently taking place within this Spiritual Revolution on Earth right now…


  • Gaia is shifting into a Higher Consciousness – The Fifth Density.
  • The old world, Third Density reality has moved into a steady breakdown phase, fueled by over consumption and destruction of the biosphere…Collapse of Civilisation and Spiritual Realignment
  • A spiritual awakening and ‘Ascension' is happening for a small percentage – the first wave – of souls.
  • We need to prepare ourselves physically by establishing more self-sustaining, resourceful, more frugal and resilient lifestyles – as inspired by the global Transition Towns Movement.
  • We must waste no time in our exploration of the inner world, The Infusion of Soul, and to let that guide the best path forwards in life. It's this that will lead to the higher paradigm – the next chapter of human and planetary history.


We have absolutely everything to gain!

Austerity is simply the natural conclusion of decades of excessive consumption. Yes, the system is unfair, but not just to the majority of people, it's outrageously exploitative of all sentient life too.

It's an imbalance that the universe cannot, and will not, sustain indefinitely – because as we know, everything is interconnected. Balance, harmony and equitability are always re-established eventually.

Ascending people have nothing to fear from this; in fact, we have absolutely everything to gain. We're being presented with the growing compulsion, the incentivised motivation, to let go of attachment to the crumbling old world reality. Take the inspiration to go within, and seek out a more highly evolved way of being; then let this radiate into your life.

Surely then, balance and equity will naturally come for you, as you begin to live the New Paradigm, here and now, through your being.

    Unbelievable. It appears that the Koch Bors. trolls are everywhere. The author should stick to propaganda and stay away from defining economics. The “debt” mentioned is a “false” fiat value invented by the truly evil controllers of global commerce and political slavery (the banksters). Like gambling junkies they order congress and all lawmakers to create the rules which serve the constant creation of “things” that only “they” get to assign value to…coming to a “natural” world soon (Agenda 21)! For this vacant claim that bankster-imposed slavery is somehow “natural”…like “competition” and “survival of the fittest” (sound familiar?)…is like claiming that the dark ages and its suffering was rightly caused by the poor, unwashed, agrarian, masses. Beware of Empires, and the horror they spew, “folks”…for the elite, its not just for breakfast anymore.

    hi these days am developing a new perspective of life.The spirituality idea doesnt seem agreeable to me any more.if we were indeed spiritualy connected people the world would not be gearing towards a destructive end ,the spiritual nature would work against such a trend that is cousing suffering to millions through bad capitalistic practices. The naive masses would prevail upon the few lords and our lifes would not waste away.we are individuals physically independent,. We are connected only at a pysical level. We need each other to accomplish almost anyithing even to reproduce new members of our species. it is this shared destiny that makes us feel like we got a higher connection.
