A while back I purchased a book for my love on Valentine’s Day.
It is “Sacred Economics: Money, Gift and Society in the Age of Transition” by Charles Eisenstein.
We’ve both been very interested in alternative currencies, barter, local economies, etc. and have read much about it, but nothing like what is described in this book. Charles Eisenstein, a genius in my opinion,(believe me, it bent my brain a bit to understand all of his concepts), regards our current monetary system as one that creates “separation.”
“The purpose of this book is to make money and human economy as sacred as everything else in the universe.”
~ C. Eisenstein
“Obviously, if we are to make money into something sacred, nothing less than a wholesale revolution in money will suffice, a transformation of its essential nature.” ~ C. Eisenstein
I could quote on and on but perhaps you will read for yourself, this inspired work by a great mind and visionary.
