Today, we need money to feel secure, and in principle, money acts as a connector: I give you money, you give me money, and we each earn from each other and win over one another at each other’s expense.
“Eventually, money will demonstrate its failure in its ability to connect us on an egoistic level, and it will then need to convert into a connector of altruistic relations. And indeed, at a certain stage, we will be able to measure altruistic efforts in monetary terms, i.e., as amounts of our giving to each other.”
“The shift from egoistic to altruistic relations is a major change because we then gain an addition of a soul, i.e., the quality of bestowal. In this soul, the quality of bestowal, we start feeling that we live on the next, higher level of existence: the spiritual world where we feel eternity and perfection.”
