Money and Love

Understanding money is part of being healthy.

What is money?

Money is a distant echo of photosynthesis. Money is energy. Money motivates bodyminds to act. Money energizes.

But money is not the only source of energy. Love is another source. Love too motivates and energizes. Love is too a distant echo of photosynthesis.

Universe is energy.  And energy comes in a variety of currencies.  Money is one.  Love is another.

Understanding money as energy helps you see all the other ways in which you are rich.

1-percenters of love are as rich as 1-percenters of $.

Energy is energy.
