Charles Eisenstein talks about the system we live in.
Anything that can be articulated can only be articulated within the language of the current political discourse. And the underlying message of our culture is, “We don’t really need each other.” Because if we have money then we don’t really need people — if I alienate someone who does something for me, I can just pay someone else to do it.
The result is a loss of connection, community, intimacy. That extends even to the people at the ‘top’.
An economist says that, “More for you is less for me.” But a lover knows that, “More for you means more for me.”
Everybody wants to live a life of meaning, and we all have a unique gift to give.
Live according to what you are here to give.
