Being an Ex-pat vs. Being a Refugee
The difference between being an Ex-pat and being a Refugee is which Story you Choose to empower, and whether your choice of Story is Conscious or Unconscious.
Choosing is one of your 3 Powers as a human being. The other two powers are Declaring and Asking. You are already using all three powers in your daily life, but until you make these powers conscious, you use them unconsciously to create a life that can only serve Unconscious Purposes.
It is possible to take Radical Responsibility for Choosing to be where you are.
Most of us thoughtlessly use the Standard Human Intelligence Thoughtware (S.H.I.T.) that modern culture gives us from our families and from school. In Standard Human Intelligence Thoughtware, choosing is unconscious. The meme of making choices conscious is not offered.
An Ex-pat unconsciously chooses to live in the story-world that they are where they are - which is presumably in a country or culture that is different from their birth culture - by their own choice... for the reason that gives them a better life.
A Refugee, on the other hand, unconsciously chooses to live in the story-world that they are forced to be where they are by the circumstances... and they are there for the reason that if they did not come here they would not survive.
Yes, these two stories are different - that use by the Ex-pat and that used by the Refugee, but In both cases the choice of which story they use has been made unconsciously.
It is exciting to discover the Possibility of consciously making the choice about being Ex-pat or a Refugee, regardless of the circumstances. Such a choice does not depend on the reason of the circumstances because the choice is made according to your own Authority.
Taking back your Authority to Choose means that no one can make your choice for you. More interestingly, no one can stop you from making this choice yourself. You can reclaim your Authority to make this choice about which Story you use.
When choices start to become Conscious, there is an additional Possibility that you can claim for yourself.
This is new Possibility is the option of choosing the outcome that is there, even if it seems that no other option was available for you to choose from. This is called 'choosing what is'.
How can you call it 'making a choice' if there is only one option to choose from?
The choice you get to make is actually the choice between being a Low Drama Victim of the circumstances, or being in High Drama Radically Responsible Creator of those exact same circumstances in which you have but one option to choose from and have chosen it.
By choosing what is, you are no longer a Victim of what is, but have become the Creator of what is, because now you have consciously chosen it. Your choosing can be real even if it is beyond other people's permissible comprehension because to them is seems illogical or unreasonable.
By standing in your natural Adulthood Authority and making the conscious Radically Responsible choice to choose what is, for example, "Yes. I choose to be here where I am," then no matter how you physically came to be where you are, you have killed the Refugee's Victim Story and transformed yourself from being a Refugee into being an Ex-pat.
This is a powerful option open to actually anyone.
This website is built by New Refugees... meaning, the actual refugees themselves, not some NGO or corporate-funded greenwash project.
The purpose of this website is to be a Handbook for New Refugees for empowering each other to make use of the emerging circumstances in creative and empowering ways.
The fact that climate is changing for the worse, or that the capitalist patriarchal empire is in its death throes is no accident. This magnitude of force is needed to change the status quo, to kick you out of your sleeping comfort zone and put your feet to the road so you can do something about exiting from a life of mere survival.
Now that you are getting free of your belongings, your title, your reputation, and all the things you know which had been until now limiting what you value in your previous circumstances, you can actually start doing something different.
This is a blessing, for you, and for Gaia.
Two Doorways To Being A New Refugee
You have probably become a New Refugee in one of two ways:
In either case your circumstances are the same.
(This is a heavy thing to claim, yet... if you investigate it, you might come to agree.)
The Armageddon Refugee and the Transformation Refugee are in the same aliveness-enhancing circumstances. The usual burden of being framed-up by your existing circumstances has been entirely removed. You have a new future. Are you going to wait around expecting someone else to make your future for you? Or are you going to make your future yourself? It is a simple but big question.
Not answering this question consciously means you unconsciously expect someone else to create a new life for you. Is that really what you want?
By becoming aware of your grand opportunity, and by taking radical responsibility for being where are, you become a New Refugee, regardless of how you got here.
A Film About Transformation Refugees
The (R)evolution - cultural creatives
What Is A New Refugee?
In June 2019 the United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR) released a report documenting that over 70 million people around the world are now refugees. The UN agency admitted that their estimate is conservative (meaning underestimated).
UNHCR defines a 'refugee' in three limited categories: refugees, asylum seekers, and internally displaced people (IDPs), all of whom must be fleeing conflict or persecution to qualify as a 'refugee'.
The UN's figures ignore the estimated 10 million stateless persons. Neither do they include the increasing numbers of people who are forced to leave their homes or countries due to climate change. Typhoons, draught, hurricanes, tornadoes, rising temperatures, and rising oceans may add an additional 150 million actual refugees by 2050, forcing the world total of refugees to gradually exceed 200 million.
This total - as shocking as they may be - are joined by a third category of refugees that is not taken into account by any of the above calculations.
There are estimated to be more than 100 million Cultural Creatives already in the world today.
However, a refugee is a refugee, regardless of the way you have become a refugee.
To think that you becoming a refugee is an accident does not pay proper respects to the brilliant wisdom and timing of ECCO (Earth Coincidence Control Office) which has been arranging the miraculous events of your life heretofore.
If becoming a refugee is not an accident, then what do you need to shift to make effective use of the exquisite and powerful opportunities you have been given by becoming a refugee? That is what this website is about: tools, techniques, thoughtware upgrades, and processes that activate you as a transformational refugee.
The perspective that being a refugee carries a higher state of Possibility than, for example, being an employee, being a citizen of a country, owning a home or a business, etc., is not a new idea. For example, at the end of the article at this link you will find these words: "Instead of being framed using linguistic strategies that suggest victimhood... refugees and asylum seekers could perhaps better be framed as capable, resilient people who have overcome adversity, who have resisted and freed themselves from oppressive or dangerous situations."
Standard Refugee Concept
Standard Refugee story: "Bad things happened to me. The weather changed. There is war. My house and farm are destroyed. The government is corrupt. I was forced to leave. Nobody is helping me. I have been abused, abandonned, betrayed, and victimized. I am helpless and alone. I don't have enough food, shelter, clothing, or security. I feel angry, sad, and scared. Somebody has to take care of me."
New Refugee Concept
New Refugee story: "What happened is not an accident.

Clarity, Energy, and Team
There are over 300 million refugees now roving the Earth without a country.
Some have been forced to leave their homelands by war, corrupt government, climate change, draught, flood, or famine. These are the 'Armageddon Refugees'.
Some have been forced to leave their homelands by awareness expansion. The culture of their birth no longer holds enough reality to make any sense. These are the 'Transformation Refugees'.
Both kinds of refugees have gone in search of something better. The moment you shift away from perceiving yourself as a victim of circumstances and start perceiving yourself as a chosen one who has been given great opportunity to create something, you become a New Refugee.
Perhaps going in search of something better is the wrong strategy... perhaps there isn't anything better to find...
Not finding something better does not mean that something better can not be made.
Whose job is it to make something better? We are claiming that making something better is the job of the New Refugees. In other words, you.
How can you make something better? It seems obvious that you do not have the authority, the power, the money, the resources, the connections, maybe even the vision to make things better... so how can you make something better?
You have the CLARITY to make it better! You have the ENERGY to make it better! And you have the TEAM to make it better! These are the perfect ingredients for making it better!
You have CLARITY to make it better because you recognize things that have not worked. That clarity is treasure.
You have ENERGY to make it better through your pain about what you have lost, your pain about hopes that have been shattered, your pain about people you have lost, your pain about things that are broken or destroyed. Consciously feeling and applying the wisdom of your pain and suffering is the ENERGY for making things better. This pain is gold.
You have a TEAM to make it better in all your fellow New Refugees, whether they originated as Armageddon Refugees or Transformation Refugees.
All New Refugees have something in common. You carry enough pain about what does not work to serve you as designers of the next culture. Your pain is the key to creating new ways of life, new circular organizations, new regenerative agriculture, new radically responsiblep infrastructure, new gameworlds.
The New Refugee strategy is clear. "You won't change things by fighting the existing gameworlds. You change things by creating new gameworlds that make the existing gameworlds irrelevant."
The pain-empowered clarity about what does not work from you and your team's recent life experiences is the catalyst for creating new gameworlds that have a new chance of working.
Work In A Circle
Thanks for the space to explore this with you. Will keep updated with any developments on starting this journey to create sustainable refugee communities, or insights if I go to any camps this year. To share my journey through the gate which is based on the refugee community vision - I asked for insight on where to start on this journey - a large stone figure told me to move to a refugee family and become like family in the community - learn the language / customs / traditions. That understanding how trust and honor operates interpersonally in the community is fundamental to transformation and new cultures.
Use a diamond-sharp Sword of Clarity to listen to what each person says and distinguish what the purpose of each statement is. Take ownership of being Radically Responsible for everything that happens or does not happen. Avoid using reasons, or excuses. Avoid blaming others or feeling resentful. Avoid plotting revenge, even revenge by success, such as "I told you so." We are all on the same team. Everyone brings their unique value into play just by being present, even before they do anything. Take Radical Responsibility for your own value and for admiring and respecting the value of each person.
Use your Sword of Clarity in your energetic body to sense whether or not you are giving your Energetic Center away to the past, to belief systems, to traditions, to not knowing how, or to external authorities. Learn and practice to Become Centered.
Use 5 Bodies
Arguing from the mind and defending concepts with intellectual discussion and reasons is a trap for not creating the next new things. Do not get caught in that trap. Instead adopt the understanding that each person has 5 Bodies, not just a mind. The universe of making things happen is bigger than the mind. Each of the 5 Bodies has its own intelligence, needs its own food, has its own Liquid States, and its own ecstasies. Call upon the intelligence of each person's 5 Bodies to create new results.
Practice Being Present Rather Than Being In Stories
Take Radical Responsibility for stories, both inside you (inner permaculture) and outside you (outer permaculture).

Train-Up New Refugee Nanonation Builders
Train-up 3-person Teams of New Refugee Nanonation gameworld-builders to go out to start more self-duplicating New Refugee Nanonations. Each New Refugee Nanonation is a school for training-up New Refugee Gameworld Builders.
8 Prisons / 8 Initiations
Extracting yourself from the 8 Prisons involves 8 authentic adulthood Initiations.
Initiation is a path of empowerment and creation. The path of initiation is your birthright - but initiations have been forgotten by modern culture. This has killed modern culture.
An initiation is any process after which you are consciously able to take more responsibility. The best initiations empower you to take responsibility for things you may never imagined responsibility could be taken. It is also possible for you to face into your life and take radical responsibility.
Nobody can get initiated for you. Nobody can stop you from doing it.

This website stands completely on its own as a Handbook for New Refugees, and at the same time, this website is a Bubble in the Bubble Map of the free-to-play massively-multiplayer online-and-offline thoughtware-upgrade matrix-building personal-transformation real-life adventure-game called StartOver.xyz. It is a doorway to experiments that upgrade your thoughtware so you can relocate your point of origin and create more possibility. Your knowledge is what you think about. Your thoughtware is what you use to think with. When you change your thoughtware, you go through a liquid state as your mind reorganizes itself. Liquid states can bring up transformational feelings and emotions. By upgrading your thoughtware you build matrix to hold more consciousness and leave behind a low drama life of reactivity. No one can upgrade your thoughtware for you. More interestingly, no one can stop you from upgrading your thoughtware. Our theory is that when we collectively build 1,000,000 new Matrix Points we will change the morphogenetic field of the human race for the better. Please choose responsibly to read this website. Reading this whole website is worth 1 Matrix Point. Doing any of the experiments earns you additional Matrix Points. Please use Matrix Code NREFUGEE.00 to log your Matrix Point for reading this website on StartOver.xyz. Thank you for playing full out!
