Reader comment on Alan Watts's passage ...

Money is not Wealth

On Aug 26, 2014 Paul wrote:

True wealth in my own view is a deep connection to all beings and all things. It cannot and should not be purchased. It is obtained and not bought. It is given freely and not sold. True currency is our connection to people that value the same things. It is an agreement that says I will be there with what I have and who I am to assist you in whatever you need. If I cannot do this then hopefully I have a connection to someone who can. It means we have to value our relationships more than we value our money. Because if money is the only thing that binds us, we will be lost to each other when the money is gone.
