"The only devils in the world are those running around in our own hearts—that is where the battle should be fought."
—Mahatma Gandhi

We at Solari are often asked why we are optimistic about our future. We are far from oblivious to the risks and pain in our environment. Yet, we believe that a peaceful world is possible, and that the path to our collective well-being begins with each of us transforming from the inside out—coming clean. With our prayers, actions, and transactions, we have the power to shift energy away from those who misuse power and move it to ourselves and to those who are worthy stewards of our planet's wealth and our children's future.

The current financial system is centralizing political and economic power in a manner that is draining or destroying living equity—people, plants, animals, and our natural resources—as well as the financial equity of many people worldwide. We liken these forces to a tapeworm, a parasite that grows stronger as we feed it. Like a tapeworm, these forces inject addictive substances into our system that we have allowed to incentivize us to participate in what makes the tapeworm strong. As we do, we are drained until we perish.

How do we stop a parasitic economy? We have come to understand that most instances of fighting or confronting centralized authority, or trying to reason with it, only add to its power and deplete our enthusiasm and resources. There is a better way—one that shifts the flow of energy back to us.

First we must each recognize our own individual role in supporting a centralizing financial and corporate system thrive, and understand how we are connected to it and how we feed it. With this understanding, we can detach and cleanse it from our lives. We can cleanse it from our thoughts, our habits, our home, and our family. We can cleanse it from our transactions—our bank deposits, media and consumer purchases, donations and investments. We can cleanse it through our participation in the governance of our local political, civic, spiritual and economic systems as well other private institutions in which we are involved. 

By shifting our attention, actions and transactions away from a centralizing financial and corporate system, we increase our personal power, security, and wealth. We exercise our power to fashion a new unity between those who respect and encourage living equity and who understand the importance of financial equity to our individual and collective sustainability. Such an alliance can create new and greater wealth to transform and decentralize political power and economic markets, moving us into alignment to create a free and abundant world. 

How exactly do we do this? We thought we would share some of what we do, in the hope that these ideas may be useful for you. In the column to the right, you will find three main areas of opportunity for coming clean. As we come clean, we live more joyously and profitably amidst spiritual and economic warfare. As we each come clean, we withdraw the energy that we give each day to the people and organizations destroying our world. As we each come clean, our energy grows, and we give new energy to each other and to the people and organizations leading the creation of this new world that is percolating. As we each come clean, the world we envision emerges.

Coming Clean was originally authored by Catherine Austin Fitts and Christina Engelbart in 2004. Since then it has been updated by the Solari team with input from our network. We consider it a work in progress.
