What do we get when we read this one word DEMAND?
What are we demanding in life?
Where are we demanding in life?
What does our collective demand give us?
In other words, when the majority of us want (demand) the same thing, how is this then supplied to us by our world?
What are our desires (demands) that we have and expect from others, our work and our world?
What are we insistent about when it comes to what we want (demand) and make it our right to get it, no matter what?
What demands do we have entitlement about in our life?
In other words, we want (demand) because we feel entitled.
The following is a straightforward simple presentation for us to consider how supply comes AFTER demand and not the other way around.
In other words, we – the people, the Citizens of this world, the general public and that means all of us – humanity, regardless of our status on this planet we reside on, make a call and that call is a DEMAND. Once we make the call and more and More (the masses) collectively demand (want) something, then it is supplied.
Let us look at some important and quite obvious examples in our current modern day world of demand –
We have a multi-billion dollar industry for Sleeping Aids.
In other words, we (the masses, the people) have made a call to say, “We want Solutions to fix our Sleep problems” and bingo suppliers come up with the next and the next to “Fix the Sleep problems” BUT NEVER do we Question HOW and WHY we got a Sleep issue in the first place.
We go on long haul flights and instead of using that time and space wisely, we indulge with foods we don’t need and watch anything on the Screen to fight our natural state, asking to just shut Eye and Sleep.
For those that are ready for Real Change – go to our Sleep category, which is taken from our Sleep book called The Real Truth about Sleep. Written by this author who does not have any Sleep related issue or problem.
In the past, it was a small business and we have the images of street peddlers and those with nothing taking Drugs.
Today the illicit Drugs industry is around $400 billion (1)
Most of us do not want to know the Reality that many people working and holding down important jobs take illicit Drugs, as do the Youth of today and this means we have created a Drug crisis worldwide that is at epic levels.
For those that require more detail, facts and stats – go to our category on Drugs/Alcohol and you will be left in no doubt that what we have demanded has been supplied and to the point that we have mind altering substances, we can call them toxic poisons, infiltrating throughout our society everywhere. Yes, it is time to wake up and realise that our DEMAND for such poisons is WHY the Alcohol1 and Drug industries are growing exponentially.
Let us not Blame those that supply as they are responding to the call we are making – we demand and then they supply.
On the topic of Drugs, a reminder that most who take illicit Drugs would hate to know, that this industry involves people Trafficking, including children, abuse at levels most of us do not want to know about and murders.
FOOD and OBESITY
WHY are we making the demand for more and More foods that are literally killing us?
Have we considered how come no animal residing on this planet over eats or Eats foods to dull, numb or stimulate their body?
WHY are the food suppliers making the perfect combo of salt, sugar and fat (the bad fats) that get us hooked (addicted) to them and they have no nutritional value whatsoever worthy of a mention?
For those that require a number – the global Fast Food market is valued at $980,000,000,000 and it is on the rise with forecasts for 2032 at $1,584,000,000,000 (2)
Those that supply the foods that we crave (demand) are in Business as that means profit.
Have we forgotten how many young children are having their Teeth rot from gum disease – ask the dentists and they will not hold back in sharing the raw reality of what is truly going on?
OBESITY is off the scale now worldwide, so high time we got a dose of Honesty as to how we have got ourselves into this place with our DEMAND for foods that do not support our natural state of being. Our body cannot digest what we desire and seek but we have this ‘over-ride’ switch that negates that internal Communication and we just ingest what we want, when we want and how we want.
Pandemic lockdowns made sure we got comfortable at home and food seemed to be something we focussed on more than anything. Work less, forget the workout or walking as food and Screen Time were top of the agenda.
Is it really any surprise that post pandemic we have nations with Obesity and ‘movement restricted musculoskeletal problems’ on the rise, like never before?
For those that need evidence or are genuinely interested in reading more – search the following articles on this website
We have demanded that we don’t like going to work and we want to work less but get paid the same or more.
We seek a promotion as control and power is what we desire (demand) and we make that our only Focus and forget that this affects those that we view as being less or more than us.
We demand jobs that we are simply not equipped to deal with as it involves interactions with a team of people and building and developing Relationships, but we lack even a basic 101 relationship with our self.
We demand that those employers of ours do what we want and for many that means ‘Getting Away with It’ – minimum time spent on the actual job and having no concern about the bigger picture.
In other words, we are not even considering that our new lazy comfort style movement (behaviour) is having an impact on the economy as a whole.
We demand the right to insist we are right, even if we are not, because we see and hear others ‘Getting Away with It’ and so we go along with this, instead of taking a Stop moment and asking “How does my behaviour affect this workplace?”.
We demand that we have rights and we want policies changed now in our workplaces so it works in our favour and we don’t care if we are in the services industries and our service users will miss out as a result of our new demands.
We demand that we work from home as we don’t want to commute as it means face to face and travelling, be it Car or public transport and we would rather not leave the comfort of our home.
We spend our entire time at work complaining about our job and looking at how we can take time off for more vacations, as our demand for longer Holidays is ensuring the suppliers come up with more and More destinations to escape to.
How big is our demand that those suppliers –
our worldwide travel and tourism industry is now worth around $2.29 trillion? (3)
Is this just a number or can we grasp the enormity of what this amount of money actually is?
A confirmation of our demand for leisure and it’s not going down.
We demand the medics give us relief from our pain and we do not want to ever consider where does the pain originate from?
We seek (demand) more and More medication to deal with pain that is now persistent and we never give it a thought that we may have caused it in the first place?
We say we are an evolved species, but are we really if we are using the medical world to fix us up when things keep going wrong with our body, because we are refusing to take deep Care of it by listening and responding to what it needs?
Just to be absolutely clear here – the author is pro-medical and pro-medicine. Always seek proper professional advice from your doctor or clinical health practitioner, but at the same time start asking sensible Questions1
We have an Opioids epidemic that is not going away. Overdose deaths are rising because more and More people are using some form of medication to deal with pain and by not getting to the root cause the body develops a tolerance. That means we need more medication and the natural pain relief we get from our body shuts down. It cannot do its job as something from the outside that we demand (pain medication) enters the body and takes over but as with all pain relief drugs, they come with side effects and the possibility of addiction.
Can we admit we are nowhere on the front foot when it comes to dealing with our pain, because our demand for all forms of pain relief seems to have taken over our common sense questioning?
We like to Blame the pharmaceuticals profiting and yet we gave them the job in the first place.
In other words, our demand for drugs to fix us and get rid of the pain is all we want and by not asking for more or questioning anything, they supply and keep on supplying.
For those interested in numbers – the global pharmaceutical industry has had significant growth over the past 2 decades and worldwide revenues totalled $1.48 TRILLION U.S. dollars last year – 2022. (4)
Can we get a sense of how HUGE this is in monetary terms and it comes from our demand?
Would it be a wise move to at least consider how our demand creates an industry of epic proportions and whilst we all need to take some kind of drugs when our body calls for this, there is much we can deal with by changing our Lifestyle Choices and not go heading down that pill popping road that leads to serious consequences?
AND Finally –
What is it about us that simply does not want to listen when 195 countries tell us that there is not a drop of Alcohol1 that is of benefit for human consumption and study after study confirms to us that Alcohol2 is a scientific proven poison but yet we still demand (seek) it?
It is well worth reading evidence on our article titled Alcohol Awareness
For the record – revenue from alcoholic drinks worldwide – $1.609 TRILLION U.S. dollars in 2023 (5)
Nothing is making sense if we have the so-called evidence and yet we continue going down the road of demand and then Blame suppliers for giving us what we call for.
Let us be reminded once and for all –
We make the call and that means we DEMAND and thereafter our suppliers give us what we asked for.
