A few days ago, I was interviewed by Chris Taylor of Reuters on “the Dharma of Money.” The interview was picked up by Time. Here is the link to the interview. It was an interesting conversation, especially with the stock markets of the world whipsawing wildly these past weeks. I am increasingly interested in what traditions of contemplation and mindfulness have to say about how we place value on experiences, objects, and especially how we place value upon people, and how different people can be worth such incredibly different amounts of money. I would’ve liked to take the conversation much deeper, but at very least I think it’s a conversation that spiritual people should dive into fully, never shying away from. After all, money is the energy that rules our world. Let’s talk about it, and if someone says it’s an inappropriate conversation, tell them you respectfully disagree.
