The new personal wealth is “participation” and the exchange is in terms of “relationship.” Relationships occur on a global as well as a local level. People are choosing to make their investment where they can see, feel, touch, hear, taste or otherwise "experience" their investment. People enjoy investing in their community, schools, a friend’s business, the local farmer and the artisan. Because it is easy to see how their participation and relationships make a difference.
Personal worth is increased when a person actively participates and develops relationships. Viewing the local community as a garden and ourselves as mindful gardeners, our community becomes a living, growing and sharing place. What is more exciting than a busy local farmer’s market; visiting with old friends and making new ones while laughing and sharing.
Peace, Love, Light!
