Personal Systems Regarding Finances


The physical department if life hard labour is ideal for getting a financial start, but from there on it is all as far as financial success is concerned. 

Most financial successful peoples only work with the physical body long enough to secure enough money to get started in the financial world.

Once into the world of numbers, one must use the mind.
Save something no matter what your wage.

Look for investments and use your good judgment in placing your money there. Never go into a business without a thoroughly investigation. 

Do not let the corrupt bankers use your money to commit genocide in other countries. Invest locally.
The most entrepreneurs you have, the less likely your destiny will be controlled by central banks.
Take interest in the new business and learn every angle as quickly as possible. 

If you are truly interested of making a fortune of this business and want to do it ethically your subconscious will then understand that you do want to receive a great benefit from it and it will help others.

Have lunch with your subconscious every now and then. Met regularly with it and stay abreast with what it is thinking (Meditate).
Employ zeal fervour and enthusiasm in every one of your activities especially your giving first, then you know you will be receiving.
Be grateful for everything that comes to you. It has come for a reason.

When it comes to development the spiritual department is directly connected with the social. The financial is connected with the mental, wherein lies reason will and judgment. 

The mental department also contains the subconscious, emotions affections, beliefs and genius.
Intuition inspiration and genius are borne in the subconscious and the superconscious.
The superconscious is directly related to spiritual development. 

The more spiritual one become the greater bandwidth between superconscious and conscious.

Kin's Domain

The Kin Domain is presented in Anastasia (book 1) and the Ringing Cedars Series (presently 9 books) written by Vladimir Megre’.   

The series of books presents a unique perspective on history, society, family, education, spirituality and man’s relationship to nature.  It presents some unique solutions to problems that are present throughout the world. Well worth reading.
(The books use the term Man to describe both man and woman, so man will be used herein for simplicity).
A kin-domain essentially means family home, though has far more to it than just being a home.

The difference between kin-domain and the current “family home” is that the land the kin-domain is based upon would have to be sufficiently large to sustain most food, water and building materials for the family living upon it in perpetuity, generation after generation after generation. The kin-domain is planted in a way that makes it highly productive for food, whilst requiring a minimum of effort.
Although it would take quite an amount of work to establish, as well as many years for the plant and animal systems within the domain to reach equilibrium, some time. If done well this is quite possible, as exemplified by food forests.

Ideally a kin-domain would be free from taxes and owned outright, with hereditary title in perpetuity, the kin-domain being passed on to the next of kin.

A kin-domain would have some or all of the following features
A dam or pond to provide a water supply
Living fences
Trees planted to provide wood for future generation’s buildings and for firewood where needed.
Bee-hives
Farm and companion animals
A food forest
Vegetable patch
An area for the cultivation of grains

Many of these aspects can be easily integrated in the one area.

They have been taking the world by storm. She talks of the ancient Vedic Russian (VedRus) civilization and how they lived so spiritually, practically and sustainably in nature, and in community.

Her words are very inspiring. She talks about people going back to their motherland (Mother Earth) and the best way to do it is by every family, wishing to do so, getting at least 1 hectare of land and establishing a family plot to be handed down to following generations of that family for ever more. 


She describes it as a chance to create a space for the family in which to grow and blossom in connection and co-creation with Nature and the original blueprint of this planet whilst creating fulfilling work for all the family, meeting all of their needs. Hence the name family Kin's Domain. Her vision for the world is beautiful.

Anastasia's vision is simple... 
each family takes responsibility for 1 hectare of land. They design the plot as they like and plant whatever they wish, however they see fit. There is no dogma, no belief system, just complete autonomy of the individual or family on each plot to create, what she describes as, a Space of Love for themselves which will bring them the highest nourishment, upliftment, beauty and joy in life. 

If everyone does this then the world will be transformed into a paradise garden earth one hectare at a time - how simple a vision... but so far reaching!

She says that once people start to live in this way, they will begin a whole new co-creation with Nature that they can't even imagine yet!


In  10 years over 400 such settlements have sprung up in Russia and Ukraine, also 1 or 2 in the US, Canada, Poland and in Italy. The books themselves sold over 10 million copies just by word of mouth... no advertising what-so-ever!  

Vladimir Megré

Each family has to take a hectare of land and turn it into a heavenly oasis, and call this plot of land their Kin’s Domain.”

РVladimir Megr̩


A Kin’s Domain is one hectare (2.5 acres) of land where a family creates a Paradise for themselves and their (future) children. The land is your connection to God and the Universe. Through Perfecting the Dwelling Land around him, Man perfects himself, and the world.


A Kin’s Domain is one hectare (2.5 acres) of land where a family creates a Paradise for themselves and their (future) children. The land is your connection to God and the Universe. Through Perfecting the Dwelling Land around him, Man perfects himself, and the world.

Humanity needs a way of living that will regenerate our planet, our lives, and our families.




Questions

  1. “If the human community consists of rational beings, why does it pollute the water it drinks and the air it breathes?
  2. “Why have people chosen a way of life that leads them to consume mostly low-quality food?
  3. “Why, as we keep speaking of spirituality, culture and human values, are there constant wars in the world?”

These questions are taken from the Ringing Cedars of Russia series by Vladimir Megre, in which the idea of Kin’s Domains is proposed as the solution to these problems, and all world crisis. In these books he provides a great deal of evidence, that Kin’s Domains would be the most sustainable and most widely accepted model of living currently available to the world.


A Kin’s Domain is a piece of the Earth that a family takes to create a living Paradise for themselves and their future children, to hand down to them in perpetuity. It is the Domain of their Kin.

It is at least 2.5 acres of land (100m x 100m), where a family plants a living fence of trees and bushes around the perimeter. On the inside, they dig a pond, plant a forest, an orchard, flower and vegetable gardens, build a house and keep bees and animals, all with the intention of passing this land down to generations of their children. They use strictly organic methods of gardening, and create no pollution of any kind. The families who create Kin’s Domains are doing so to ensure the best possible future for their children.

When each willing family does this, bit by bit, the world will be transformed into a blooming heavenly oasis. Each family, willingly and enthusiastically, takes to the land and regenerates the Earth. There are already more than 400 Kin’s Domain settlements in Russia and eastern Europe, with the largest of them having over 200-300+ families.

This is not a movement that is being forced or recommended by anyone externally, but instead it is an idea being carried out by people of their own free will, largely without governmental support. An idea like this which so many people are doing on their own, should be supported by all governments, because they lose nothing, and have everything to gain.

If people are willing to accept land, plant gardens on it, become self-sustainable, and regenerate the environment in the process, should we not help them?

Kin’s Domains address all 17 of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, while requiring minimal financial resources. Read our report on Kin’s Domains and the 17 SDGs below.

“Creating a Kin’s Domain means improving the environment, and that’s the main purpose of a Man’s being. If God had created the environment, and his children were talented so much as to improve it – that would be the utmost spirituality of mankind.”

– Vladimir Megre


Kin’s Domain Settlements and “Eco-Villages” are not  the same thing.

A Kin’s Domain is 2.5 acres (1 hectare) of land, which a single family transforms into a flourishing garden Paradise and home for themselves and their children. A Kin’s Domain Settlement is a community comprised of many individual Kin’s Domains.

The “Eco-Villages” of the West have a much more “communal” focus, where everything is shared between individuals. There are many  other differences.


Here Vladimir Megre (author of the Ringing Cedars books) explains his experience at the NEXUS Summit located at the United Nations in 2015, when he was sharing the idea of Kin’s Domains:
 


The Goals of Kin's Domain

 Goal 1: No Poverty

What are the conditions which cause poverty? Families don’t control their own land and their food supply, thus they have to work for these two basic human rights. If every family can provide suitable living conditions and a steady food supply for themselves (let alone when they are in community with like-minded families, and have the support of their government), then the causes of poverty, and poverty itself is eliminated. With families all provided an opportunity for income generation through small scale, local and organic agriculture, and small batch, high quality manufacturing operations, poverty cannot exist, as the conditions causing it have been removed.

Goal 2: Zero Hunger

With families practicing small scale regenerative growing methods, all of their food needs are met by themselves, and the community around them on their Kin’s Domain settlement. At the minimum, purchased food can be supplemented by food grown on the domain. With the Kin’s Domain model, there is greater opportunity than ever for world food security. For instance, one family in Los Angeles is able to grow 7000 pounds of organic food per year on a tenth of an acre, supplying 90 percent of their diet. They spend less than $2 per day per person on other kitchen staples and make over $20,000 a year selling excess produce. When people are properly re-skilled and educated on efficient gardening techniques, imagine what can be done on 2.5 acres. Then imagine what could be done if even 5% of America lived on Kin’s Domains, and the food surpluses that would create for the country.

Goal 3: Good Health and Well-being

As a result of families cleaning their environment, planting trees (purifying the air, attracting rain), gardens and orchards, consuming the highest quality organic produce, a tight-knit and supportive social environment where everyone is united in a common aspiration, families living on Kin’s Domains enjoy a substantially higher level of health and well-being than their city dwelling counterparts.They consume food of the highest, beyond organic, quality, engage in stimulating exercise while tending their land, and are daily engaged in the work which they feel is most meaningful to them: creating a corner of the Earth to hand down to their descendants.

Goal 4: Quality Education

On Kin’s Domain settlements, education is taken into the hands of parents who are invested and engaged in their children’s education. Since the “classes” are smaller, students receive more individual attention, and lessons are more participatory and engaging. Without the external stressors of the traditional school system used in cities, children living on domains will excel academically.

Goal 5: Gender Equality

Men and women uniting in love to create happy families will experience the highest form of gender equality that man has to offer. Men and women coming together for the purpose of creation of children, and of the establishment of a family domain where their kin will live in perpetuity, will respect and treat each other with the highest dignity and fairness possible. Indeed, they would not even aspire to such things if they were not already thinking of the opposite gender with the highest respect. And the entire community around them thinks and acts this way.

Goal 6: Clean Water and Sanitation

All families who are establishing kin’s domains are committed to maintaining clean and fresh water supplies. Lakes and other bodies of water are cleaned by residents of the settlements, and are never polluted by them. Sanitation is handled in the most eco-friendly ways possible. Large sewer systems do not exist on domains. Compostable toilets are used. All waste that can be composted, is. With less use of packaged manufactured good, waste generated per family decreases.

Goal 7: Affordable and Clean Energy

Families living on domains opt for the cleanest and most ecologically sustainable forms of energy available (solar, wind, hydro, etc.) They keep use of such resources to a minimum.

Goal 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth

Families living on kin’s domains have decided to create a new ways of life for themselves and their descendants, and so by virtue of that decision, the work they do is inherently decent and becoming of them. With a myriad of options for generating income via their life on the land, all families are provided opportunities for long term, sustainable, and scalable economic growth. Not to mention that virtually none of the jobs are polluting the environment or detracting from society in any way. Examples of these economic opportunities include beekeeping, baking, growing and selling fruits and vegetables, making clothes, and so on.

Goal 9: Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure

The inhabitants of kin’s domain settlements do not endeavor to set up large scale factories out of the desire to not pollute the environment. They provide their own infrastructure, usually on an individual family basis, and also on a settlement-wide basis. They create their own roads, provide their own electricity, water, etc. The kind of industry being practiced on Kin’s Domains is small scale and regenerative.

Goal 10: Reduced Inequalities

Families living on kin’s domains have decided to create a new ways of life for themselves and their descendants, and so by virtue of that decision, the work they do is inherently decent and becoming of them. With a myriad of options for generating income via their life on the land, all families are provided opportunities for long term, sustainable, and scalable economic growth. Not to mention that virtually none of the jobs are polluting the environment or detracting from society in any way. Examples of these economic opportunities include beekeeping, baking, growing and selling fruits and vegetables, making clothes, and so on.

Goal 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities

Kin’s Domains settlements will be completely sustainable and ecologically frienly in the highest way, by themselves. But the impact of the idea is far reaching. Not everyone will be able to transition to living life fully on the land instantly, nor should they, as haste breeds mistakes. There will be thousands and millions of people trying to transition to life on their very own Kin’s Domain, but they will start by cleaning up the places where they are. Inspired by a new vision of life, they will begin to take charge of the health and cleanliness of their cities. They will grow gardens where they can. Plant trees along the streets. Redesign whole sections of cities to be more beautiful and green. Also, those on Kin’s Domain settlements that are near cities will sell their products to those living in the cities, thus improving the quality of life of those in the cities. Those living in the cities will see the settlements near them and be inspired to change their lives.

Goal 12: Responsible Consumption and Production
People trying to establish Kin’s Domains take sustainable production and consumption extremely seriously. Since they will be living so close to the land, they are hyper-aware of what waste they produce, whether through consumption or production. Production waste created by those living on settlements is extremely minimal, since they aren’t engaging in any large scale industrial manufacturing processes. There is no industrial pollution — zero. Mostly all products made on kin’s domains are ecologically friendly and don’t create any waste — food products, handmade clothing, crafts, animal products like milk and honey, etc. All of these are very minimal in waste. And since kin’s domain settlers are the ecologically conscious type, they are keen to make as little waste as possible in their consumption as well. And lastly, since they are all attempting to become self-sufficient, they cut down on consumption where they can. They produce much more (green products), and consume much less (all products) than the average city dweller.

Permaculture Principles and Self Sufficiency

 

Principle 1: Observe and Interact

  • Track your spending: The simple step of keeping a pocket notebook
  • Make a budget: Once you have a month or two of personal spending data, use that data to create a real, accurate picture of how you spend each month.
  • Make better conscious decisions about spending, saving, and investing: When you’re in the moment and about to spend some of your hard-earned cash, pause for a moment and ask yourself if that purchase makes sense and whether you could get the same item or experience elsewhere for less money

Principle 2: Catch and Store Energy

  • Build an emergency fund: The moment when things are going well is the best time to put aside a little bit of cash for those moments when things aren’t going well. Some time in the future, you’re guaranteed to have a crisis that you’re not financially prepared for, so do what you can now to make sure that you’re ready later.
  • Start a side gig to earn more money: Avoid relying on just one source for all of your income. Look for some way – any way – to start building another method of earning money, whether it’s recording YouTube videos or writing e-books
  • Maximize your professional opportunities: Take advantage of every opportunity you can to bolster your career. If your employer pays for conference or convention attendance, jump on board. If your boss asks for a show of hands to volunteer for leadership or public speaking, stick your hand up.

Principle 3: Obtain a Yield

  • Invest for retirement: If you’re not putting away money for retirement, you’re making a huge financial mistake. Real Estate investments are the best. It is a passive income
  • Invest for your other goals, too.
  • Use frugal tactics that result in a drop in your bills

Principle 4: Apply Self-Regulation and Accept Feedback

  • Track your spending changes over time in the form of your net worth:regularly calculate your net worth and then see if it is growing over time by comparing your net worth today to where it was at a last week , last month and a year ago.
  • Trust that data, even when it shows you a negative picture: The numbers are giving you an unbiased look at what you’re actually doing.
  • Address your mistakes head on and look for new ways to improve your situation: When you see a problem, don’t look for reasons why it’s not really a problem. Instead, ask yourself how you can fix it and actively look for solutions.

Principle 5: Use and Value Renewable Resources and Services

  • Buy secondhand things: Before you go off and buy a new item that could easily work as a secondhand item, do some shopping at your local secondhand stores.
  • Invest in things that will constantly produce value for you: A well-positioned shade tree in your yard, once grown to sufficient size, will trim your energy bills by providing summer shade and reducing the work done by your air conditioning.
  • Invest in yourself: Investing in yourself is always a good choice because it’s something that no one else can ever take away. Invest in a solid education. Invest the time and energy needed to keep your mind and body in good shape.

Principle 6: Produce No Waste

  • Minimize the trash you throw away: Rather than simply throwing things away, look for better approaches Is there someone who might use this item you’re throwing away? Selling it or giving it away to someone who might use it is better than throwing it away.
  • Start composting: If you find yourself with extra vegetable scraps, throw them in a small compost bin. When you fill it up and rotate it regularly, it becomes rich compost, which is wonderful for gardens. Some people will even buy mature compost.
  • Buy reliable things:  choose to spend your money on items that will last for a long time.

Principle 7: Design from Patterns to Details

  • Figure out your long-term goals: What are you working for? What are your big dreams in life? Where would you really like your life to be in five years? How about ten years? Spend some time seriously thinking about your true long term goals in as much detail as possible.
  • Break down those long-term goals into actionable steps you can do each day: break down those goals into little things that you can take action on today. What’s the first step toward that big goal? Can you do that today?
  • Take action on those steps: Once you’ve identified the next actionable step on your goal, do it! Don’t just think about it. Take that action now.

Principle 8: Integrate Rather Than Segregate

  • Look for every opportunity to “kill two birds with one stone”: Whenever you have a chance to make a single purchase that takes care of two needs or achieve a single task that takes care of two things that need done, take advantage of it. Be efficient with your money and time and energy. For example, rather than going to the grocery store three times in a week, spend a bit of time planning ahead and make a list so you only have to go once.
  • Have a smart to-do list: One of the biggest advantages of online to-do list managers (like Todoist and Remember the Milk, my two favorites) is that you can add contexts to your tasks.
  • Focus on buying multipurpose items instead of unitaskers: Rather than buying a bunch of items to do similar tasks, buy just one that can do all the tasks; rather than buying complicated items, look for simpler ones.

Principle 9: Use Small and Slow Solutions

  • Increase your investments a little at a time: Don’t start off by investing half your income – it’ll never work out. Instead, start off by contributing just a little. Over time, you can keep increasing your investments as needed.
  • Make room for those increases with little efficiency improvements: As you find new avenues of smart frugality in your life, you’ll find yourself effortlessly saving more and more money. It’s pretty easy – and pretty smart – to channel that additional savings into your investments. Let frugality fuel your investing!
  • Focus on long-term value rather than the short term: This isn’t just about investments, but all of your purchases. Always look at that long term value above the immediate sticker price.

Principle 10: Use and Value Diversity

  • Try lots and lots of different frugal tactics:  find strategies and products that end up saving me money and often work better than old way of doing things.
  • Try lots and lots of free and cheap hobbies and activities in your area:  Try everything that’s free or cheap that’s available in your community or in your imagination.
  • Keep the ones that click; discard the ones that don’t: This is the key to every single money-saving strategy out there. Some will simply not be enjoyable. Others will be more work than they’re worth.

Principle 11: Use Edges and Value the Marginal

  • Don’t skip over “small” frugality tips: These tips can still be useful if they just directly replace some other similar routine in your life (like buying a generic item instead of a name brand) or you repeat it often so that the savings add up (like using a bit less toothpaste when you brush your teeth). The “small” tips can be surprisingly big over time.
  • Save your pennies and nickels, especially found ones: Those nickels add up over time to a lot of money. Whenever you see little opportunities to pick up and save a penny or a nickel, do it.
  • Look for ways to shave just a cent or two off of things you do regularly: If you can save two cents a gallon by using a different gas station, that can add up to a lot of dollars over the course of the year. If you can start using a different grocery store that saves you a nickel per item on average, you’ll end up saving a ton over the course of the year. There is a lot of value in repeating a little tip over and over.

Principle 12: Creatively Use and Respond to Change

  • When something new arises, give serious thought to whether it can provide real value for you: Ask yourself whether this item would add substantial benefit to your life without requiring you to significantly shift your behavior . If you can’t make a strong case without any hesitation, then you shouldn’t buy the product right now.
  • Have a wide and varied social network: The larger and more varied your social network, the wider the variety of ideas and perspectives that will reach your eyes and ears, and having such a social network is free.
  • Don’t be afraid to tap that network when your situation changes – or when their situation does: When someone in your social network goes through a life change or needs a helping hand, offer your assistance without hesitation, especially if it doesn’t require major effort from you (but, often, even when it does). If you do this without the expectation of something in return, you’ll find a lot of helping hands reaching out for you when the time comes. Consider it a social emergency fund built out of paying it forward.
