I believe that everything is energy. I’m energy. You’re energy. The attitude we have is energy. Those fancy-ass quantum physicists would even say that we are energy living within a field of energy. There is nothing that is not energy.
This means also that our money is energy. I’ve heard it, read it, and, yes, believe it. You can best determine a person’s priorities by how she spends her money. I’ve seen first hand how my relationship to money shifts when I can think of it in terms of energy. And it helps to explain my position on economics (yes, I have one).
As a nation, where we put our financial energy has a huge impact on our society’s financial wellness. The pencil pushers and Reaganomics fans would say we should deregulate and reduce the size of government and, for god’s sake, reduce those entitlement programs because all of that adds up on paper to fiscal responsibility. The focus of our financial energy has been on helping the rich and hoping somehow that will help the poor, and the latter group is beginning to include a growing number of former middle class folks. More importantly, our focus has been on war. Our financial energy has been focused on combat and rich folks. No wonder we all feel like financial casualties right about now.
What if our national money energy, our collective soul of manifestation, was focused on helping out those in need, providing jobs, protecting our environment, educating our children? What if we exhibited our true priorities to the world through the way we spent our money? What if big government wasn’t the enemy, and what if a government that really mirrored our priorities was in fact the answer?
There is probably not a single economist in the world that would think that is the best fiscal policy. Perhaps a few generous ones might think it is the right thing to do, but they still would be concerned for the balance sheet. And yet, I believe it is the most fiscally prudent thing to do. I believe the bottom line of that policy would be incredible bounty for the entire nation.
But, I can’t prove it. I can only hope that one day we get it.
