Business as a Force for Awakening - A Dharma Approach

Your new credit card arrives in the mail. No more swiping for you. You’ve entered a new era with your chip card and for some reason, you feel more technologically savvy, like you belong in a younger generation. But what happens inside that little chip? Do any of us know? We just trust that it’s better than swiping. We trust.

Myth: Money Comes and Goes

When we say money comes and money goes it implies that money has a mind of its own. Like we do. We wake up and plan our day. We are going here. We are going there. We are either coming, going, or not. We are in charge of our going and coming. Sure we have obligations, but we still choose how we handle them. We choose when we come and when we go.

Let’s get back to money coming and going.

Does money really choose where and when it is going? Coming?
