Money is not what it appears to be. Our problems with money are seldom to do with money itself. We have far more resources than we ever imagine or recognise.
Money is one of the most challenging areas of life.
Lack is a common experience, but even wealth presents difficulties at a human level.
Spiritual communities reject or demonise it, while secular communities confuse money as a means to an end with being an end in itself.
Most of us don’t take a holistic or integrated approach to wealth and prosperity, so we remain dissatisfied. And this is despite galvanising the planet’s natural resources, and marshaling our own mental and physical energies to work hard pursuing success.
Fragmentation or separation, is systemic. It’s hard-wired in us as individuals, and reflected in organisations and society. To counter this we need wisdom.
Financial wisdom is both handling money well, and becoming a rich and satisfied human being, independently of money. It comes from sustained commitment and practice.
