The Economics Of Gratitude
The wealthiest person is not the one with the most money but the one with the most gratitude.
Money itself is an illusion or a fictitious representation of an exchange between two persons. But what is this exchange? People exchange money for goods and services in order to live and function in this world. But what if we took money out of the situation? Why would we offer any goods or services with out any return? Such offerings become our gifts and we give because we are grateful.
A person who lives in gratitude; one who is grateful for everything including the most challenging difficulties such as sickness, loss, tragedy and so on, is never poor and always has gifts to offer in gratitude. His wealth is infinite. He does not work for anyone and yet he works for everyone. He is his own boss and yet he serves everyone.
In this way “money” is an indicator of negative gratitude. The man with the most money owes the world the most gratitude.
This is the economics of gratitude.
