In a ” Sacred Economy ” “work becomes the expression of our gifts ” , this is the message from Charles Eisenstein , a reluctant Yale graduate , university educated, but not indoctrinated.
We all know that our economic system is in need of a dramatic over haul , or more likely complete change , we can’t go on the way we are indefinitely , we are at a precipice , we can either learn to fly , or crash and burn , either way , universe is pushing us towards the edge.
Of course “we” have to change as well , we are the economic system , it’s up to us , yes we were all born into the current system that we have , which has been around for a very long time , however now that we are awake , we are understanding more each day where we came from , how we got here , which empowers us to take responsibility in creating a “More Beautiful World ” as Charles says .
Like many of us Charles has gone through radical transformation in the last few years , we woke up one day and asked , what am I doing , I’m not happy with my work , it’s not my passion , I am simply working to pay for all of things I have accumulated , I have become a slave , my possessions now possess me !
For many, the American Dream has turned into a nightmare , a self created prison of our own design and construction. There has to be a better way , and this is the journey Charles and many others are now on , exploring ideas, and ways to change the current economic paradigm , from a parasitic system to a more sacred , symbiotic system.
