Diving Deep, Rising High

Dear Gaye,

Congratulations on the release of your new book. It’s a wonderful piece of writing and I hope many millions of people will read and enjoy it!

Your post about coots, some of them taking the easy pickings from the surface (fed by human hands) and others diving to the depths to retrieve more natural mouthfuls, got me thinking. We’re all a little like those coots. We have a choice. Do we take the bread offered by others, or do we find sources of food that nourish us more richly?

On a spiritual level, it’s only when we choose to dive a little deeper beneath the surface of our lives that we discover the nutrient-rich strands of thought and feeling that help us to rise high and fly above the surface of the water. No one can do this for us. It’s a journey we choose to embark on or ignore.

But what about the material level? What of the choices we face each day in a world where global currencies are at best in the process of being devalued, at worst facing possible collapse? How do we go about securing ourselves a nourishing food source in these challenging times?

In the image above, it’s the bankers of the world who are handing out the bread, scattering tidbits of man-made sustenance onto the surface of the pond in the form of huge amounts of “quantitative easing”. This phrase really just means “we’re printing money because we’ve no idea what else to do.” But adding a few billion to the markets does not solve the problems of extreme debt that we can see in both the USA and Europe. At best it is a distraction. At worst it’s a scam. And like the bread thrown for the coots, it cannot provide sustainable nourishment.

Imagine if we were each to simply go online and add a few million dollars to our bank balances. Would it be real? Not at all. We’d be accused of fraud.

Now I realise this is a sensitive subject for people – and not one we normally cover in the Natural Wealth Journal – but I believe it’s very important for people to think about this right now. Like the coots, we have a choice: do we accept the fake food that is being tossed by human hand, or do we look elsewhere? Do we dive a little deeper?

My suggestion is that we dive deeper and by that I mean: diversify. Think gold. Think Silver. Think precious and rare metals. These can be bought in small or large quantities from many outlets, and whilst their value will fluctuate a little, the coming two years will see each of them continue to offer real sustenance in a way that more obvious investments (or simply holding cash in the bank) won’t.

If you like, we can explore some of the reasoning behind this more in future posts. I just wanted to put my two cents out there, because I see 2012 as a pivotal year in the shift of balance from West to East. Call it a heads-up.

To mix my metaphors: we can be ostriches, sticking our heads in the sands and saying: “It’s all going to be ok, the government will sort this out for us!” or we can take the coot-route, realising that our governments really don’t have the ability to keep our currencies afloat (at least not in the same shape and form that we are used to) and taking action right now to provide sustainable sources of wealth for our families.

As ever, the choice is ours!

With best wishes, Richard.
