The economy grows when we to understand that by helping the person with whom we exchange goods and services, we benefit.
Realize, we don’t exist unless we are ready, willing, and able to help our neighbor exist.
Do you believe the people of the East Coast recovering from hurricane Sandy are now going to stop living, and not make necessary repairs, because it costs too much?
Of course not.
Yet each will learn to open their heart and wallet, benefitting each other in the exchange made between them, because the repairs are necessary.
The hurricane softens our hearts with gratitude for all that we have. Paying for repairs becomes bearable, and enjoyable, realizing that we are helping our neighbor, by needing him or her.
I remind you of a tornado that occurred inSt. Peter,Minnesota, some 15 years ago. Every single steeple in the city was destroyed. A collective consciousness formed, and a healing actually occurred from all of the damage. The town now stands as a visible reminder to the endurance of the human spirit.
May the Blessing of the Great One be with all those who have suffered misfortune as a result of our recent hurricane. My heart goes out to you all.
