We have sadly all been drawn into an interpretation of life where money and the wealth that it appears to give us is considered to now be the benchmark or reference point for everything.
We literally value money to the point where it has not only become a thing in its own right, it has become the defacto god or deity that rules each and every part of our lives.
Today, we look upon others in terms of what they have, what status they hold, what they earn and what capacity they have to earn.
Yet the intrinsic value of money is nothing.
Money is worth zero.
Money is a unit of exchange and nothing more.
It is simply a change in our beliefs that has allowed the value of money to take over our lives in this way.
What we not only fail to realise, but have actually forgotten, is that the real point of value in anything is its beginning or its foundation. What it was built on or built with.
The true value of anything is not even the end product, or whatever the parts, inputs or elements of any constructive process add up to – or what things become.
People, or each and every human being on the planet are the basic elements or building blocks of The True Economy.
It is the Labour, Time, Skills and Experience of PEOPLE that add value, through process, to the raw materials and resources that we take from the world.
