At the physical level, Food, Clothing & Shelter are the 3 basic necessities that money has bought for us for as long as the modern day history dates itself. Then there are needs & wants, that flowers on the tree of desires that grow from the pleasurable stimulus of our 5 senses. Things we love to see, things we taste, smell, hear & feel. Again money buys them for us. At another level there are needs of our spirit, the needs of our subtle body, the needs of our self, the real self. Love, attention, satisfaction, happiness, ecstasy, sense of achievement and bliss of the moment. Can money buy any of these?
Money! What is money?
Wiki says “Money is anything that is generally accepted as payment for goods and services and repayment of debts. The main uses of money are as a medium of exchange, a unit of account, and a store of value.”
Money is a token, a material token that has evolved from a piece of substance to a piece of value. A Value for our needs. Money is a concept conditioned in our mind.
Nature has provided everything that is needed by our physical body. They have been available, are available and will always be available. We just need to know where to look and how to look.
we have to un-condition our mind, and understand that there are many other ways of obtaining the needs of our spirit.
Imagine a world free from the concept of money. Ask yourself how your lifestyle would be in a world that does not understand the concept of money. Identify and record the responses. Understand the responses and implement them in your life, however applicable, and watch your life change.
