We are so busy saving our skins,
 we neglect to save our souls.
 That's the real gold.

by Anthony Migchels

Since I am preoccupied with currency and Gold, people ask me how to preserve their wealth in this ongoing onslaught by the Money Power. But the fact is, I'm broke, so I'm not the one to ask.

If you want to know about health, never ask somebody who does not look healthy. When I started to wake up to reality in the aftermath of 9/11, I was an ICT professional working for a Dutch Government agency. A 'good' job, the more so since I dropped out of school at 16, without a High School diploma.

At the time, I had already gone through a period of psychological and spiritual healing after a painful childhood and adolescence. I've always felt that this healing was conditional for my sudden awakening from the Matrix.

When I started to realize what Banking is and that we are all Interest Slaves, I quit my job and took a sabbatical. After that I did a few free lance jobs, making € 60,000 per year after taxes.

That was nice, I was swimming in cash and far less dependent on silly bosses and bureaucratic antics. But I was still working for Capital which was taking most of the added value of my work. It did nothing to end interest slavery. It did nothing to stop or even slightly hinder the Money Power.

So I had to make a choice. And the choice I was contemplating was to continue these lucrative jobs and save enough to buy a few kilos of Gold. Or to abandon the idea of personal prosperity and start an Interest-Free Money initiative.

I chose the latter because of Jesus' simple words:

19 "Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal;

20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal.

21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also."

No, Jesus cares little for the preservation of wealth and although I don't care about priests or mullah's, I'm very interested in what the ancient Scriptures, from all over the world, have to say.

"Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?"

I'm a man of simple logic and to my mind it's very, very difficult to argue with these words.

There is no doubt in my mind that the Adversary has his own designs when plugging Gold as he clearly is doing now. Ron Paul had this to say on the matter:

"One objective might be to aim for every American to become a gold owner. We must encourage a broader base of political support for gold ownership....."

Quite typical of how our Masters manufacture consent.

Since I have no wealth to preserve, I've withstood the temptation to buy some Silver, which is the metal I would chose.

The danger is, I'd start hoping things would go wrong. It would diminish my capacity for resistance, because I would feel comfortable. I'd sink thousands of euros in dead Silver, rotting in my basement, while other activities need the investment.

I do recommend people who do own assets to put 10 to 20% of their assets in metal. In that case they'd be saved from the paper implosion that will continue. Without getting richer from the catastrophe. It's not advisable to profit from other people's pain. It brings certain karmic problems.

But I hate the idea of my loved ones being robbed by Banks and their owners, only because they're a little naive. But even then I'm not sure I'm doing the right thing. It might be more beneficial for them to be rudely awakened than financially secure.

Very few have actually taken the advice anyway. They don't care and there is a lot to be said for that.

My net asset position is probably about - €20,000. I only own a piano, a few hundred books, an electric scooter and a computer. Pretty grim for a 39 year old, wouldn't you say?

I married in 2003. Women are not happy with a poor man. They are brainwashed to expect comfort and luxury from marriage. 'Security'. So are most people and I'm quite sure most people who know me wonder what the hell I am up to. They like me and according to my wife, they're sometimes fascinated by what drives me, as it seems to be quite alien to them.

It's not always pleasant. It is easier and more macho to be generous in the pub as I always used to be.

But I've been incredibly blessed. Very kind and generous people have supported me and my work with gifts and loans with very soft conditions.

At some point, when the financial black hole became seemingly untenable and I really started to lose it because of the stress of clamoring creditors. All of the sudden I get a €11,000 tax rebate. Totally unexpected.

I often think of that scene in an Indiana Jones movie, where Harrison Ford is just about to get to the Holy Grail. But he's facing a great divide, a canyon that he must get across. There is no bridge, no rope, nothing. But Indiana Jones remembers the prophesies, just in time, imploring to make a leap of faith. He steps into the canyon and when he does a bridge materializes under his feet, allowing him safe passage.

I believe that this is the key to walking with the One.

This is not a recommendation and it is certainly not for the fainthearted. I don't like talking about it, because I fear it would damage the magic or suggest I have anything to do with it.

It's just an explanation why I don't feel I'm in the position to recommend any wealth preservation strategies.


Anthony Migchels is an Interest-Free Currency activist and founder of the Gelre, the first Regional Currency in the Netherlands. You can read all of his articles on his blog Real Currencies

His article appears here.


24 "No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.

25 "Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing?

26 Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?

27Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature?

28 So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin;

29 And yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

30 Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith

31 Therefore do not worry, saying, "What shall we eat?' or "What shall we drink?' or "What shall we wear?'

32  For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. 33But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.

34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble."

Scruples - the game of moral dillemas

Comments for " Financial Advice From Christ "

Nancy said (February 1, 2012):

would like to applaud Anthony Migchels for his courage in taken the road less trodden and living interest free adhering to his belief in accordance with the will of the Creator who sent guidance through Christ and other messengers throughout the ages. God grants each person their appointed sustenance during their lifetime whether it is gained by lawful or unlawful means so people should not worry too much about doing the right thing and like Anthony, will find that they will be provided for. There is also the proven Divine law that whoever spends in charity, it will be returned multiplied.

"Allah doth enlarge, or grant by (strict) measure, the sustenance (which He giveth) to whom so He pleaseth. (The worldly) rejoice in the life of this world: but the life of this world is but little comfort in the Hereafter." (Quran, Thunder, 13:26)

"There is no moving creature on earth but its sustenance depends on Allah" (Hud, 11:6)

PS. The Old Testament's advice is not that different, it just points out that sustenance won't just come if you make no effort.

Bruce said (January 31, 2012):

The Old Testament appears to offer different financial advice.

Genesis 41: 35-36
35. And let them gather all the food of those good years that come, and lay up corn under the hand of Pharaoh, and let them keep food in the cities.

36. And that food shall be for store to the land against the seven years of famine, which shall be in the land of Egypt; that the land perish not through famine.

Proverbs 6: 6-8
6. Go to the ant, thou sluggard: consider her ways and be wise:
7. Which having no guide, overseer, or ruler,
8. Provideth her meat in the summer, and gathereth her food in harvest.
