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.
