I’m just listening to a guy talking about a book Money, Greed and God and he’s referring to the famous greed is good speech in the movie Wall Street. It’s interesting how limited I feel the thinking is in the arguments. In a strange way I do believe greed is good but in a three dimensional way not the way that their patriarchal mindset breaks in to.
To me in life giving of yourself is the way to gain the most, whether it is creatively giving to the world or being of support to friends or impacting society through positive endeavor. If we gain the most in life through the results of the energetic exchange of that giving then the more we consciously give of ourselves then we are being as greedy as possible as we shall achieve the greatest gain.
I’m making a silly argument in a sense but my point is that we view things too much in a two dimensional patriarchal way. Our laws are about a right and wrong more than justice and balance based on any natural laws and humanity. We get caught up too much in the material rather than the energetic.
