Question: What is the minimum cost for people to keep a minimum standard of human life. When the police state the government provide people with a basic income is adopted people would be able to work for self-realisation instead of spending their whole lives working only for money. Through their personal development they can lead to the economic and spiritual balance of the society. What do the ascended masters think of the introduction of the system to give a basic income to the people in Korea.
Answer from the Ascended Master Mother Mary through Kim Michaels. This answer was given at a conference in Seoul, Korea in 2017.
We have previously talked about the concept of a basic income. Saint Germain has given teachings on this and what I want to specifically talk about here is the situation in Korea. We generally believe this is something that should be experimented with, with the more developed countries that have reached a certain level of affluence where they can afford to do this. Whether Korea is at this stage right now is not a clear-cut answer “yes or no” because there are certain decisions that will need to be made in Korean society before you would be ready to do this.
We would like to see that there was a greater awareness of many of the things that we have brought to your attention during our conferences. In other words, there needs to be some awareness that there is an alternative to the traditional way of life. So many people have now been brought up to see their whole lives as having a main purpose being to go to school, to study, to have a career and to work. It would be very difficult for them to make wise use of having the free time they would have if they had a basic income.
It would be better if there was more of a raising of awareness so that more people would be free of these traditional roles and this traditional programming. Instead of simply spending their free time on entertainment, they would be able to spend it on pursuing spiritual growth or some form of charity work or other things that lead to personal development. It is not our highest priority right now to have this implemented in Korea, but in the long run it is clear that both Korea and other affluent nations, primarily in the West, need to experiment with this and see how it actually affects the country.
In many cases it will lead to growth. But I must say that it is not an automatic thing that you can give people a basic income that will lead to a growth in the economy. It actually depends on how they use it. Do they use it to raise their level of consciousness, then there will be a multiplication from the ascended realm that will cause the economy of that country to grow. If they do not use it to raise their consciousness, then we cannot multiply anything and then the system will gradually be bogged down and will actually lead to a decrease in the economy, and the nations will realize that they cannot afford to continue this program.
