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.

What would it be like to have a ” Sacred Economy”  ,what does it even mean ?

First lets define “Sacred”  as Holy or Holistic  , Unified , Divine ,  of a higher caliber or quality … absolutely no religious connotation here !

Now…for me,  it would mean being able to help others , be of service to others by using my unique skills and attributes, as my contribution to the collective , and in return others within the collective , would help me ,  in areas that I was not skilled in or not particularly passionate about , not becasue they have to ,becasue they “want ” to reciprocate , in the process of giving , so that the whole is served.

It would be a return to community , local and global , based on unity , not separation , where neighbors work together in self organizing collectives ,  it would  be a return to simpler times where the pursuit of material things was not the highest goal of society.

A reality… where the elderly are treated as the treasure that they are ,and not just stuffed away in some nursing home to rot away, far away  from their loved ones , because  western  , materialistic society , glorifies youth as if it was all that mattered , no matter what the cost and sees aging and maturity as a dilemma , a problem.
