Insight Course: Lesson 18
Transforming Our Relationship With Money
Much discussion of money involves a heavy overlay of priestly incantation. There is nothing about money that cannot be understood by the person of reasonable curiosity, diligence and intelligence.
~ John Kenneth Galbraith, renowned Harvard professor of economics
Two potent topics which offer incredible opportunities for change on both personal and global levels are sex and money. Both of these can bring up vulnerable parts of ourselves related to intimacy and security needs. Even people who have done a lot of personal and spiritual growth work can still run into serious challenges with one or both of these.
In this lesson, we will explore various aspects of our relationship with money, while the next lesson will discuss sexuality. If we are going to dive deep into empowering transformation, let's look at how we can move with more awareness, beauty, and integrity in these two key areas of our life.
Considering the huge role it plays in our lives, we are taught very little about money or the financial system in our many years of education. Very few schools, for instance, ever teach students the risk of going deep into credit card debt. Very few college graduates have been taught about the role of money and banking in the development of civilization or even in our current world.
The below link will take you to a three-page essay which gives a brief overview of important facts along these lines of which few are aware. Please read this enlightening essay and watch the highly revealing, 45-minute documentary Monopoly Men mentioned there.
The above informative essay and documentary show how our collective weaknesses and blind spots in dealing with money can manifest on the global level as hidden manipulations of which the public is unaware. Clearly this little-known information has a major impact on matters such as the distribution of wealth and government debt in our world.
Though we can work to change this by educating others on these important matters and doing our best to change the system, possibly the most powerful thing we can do in this regard is to take a look at our own lives and explore where we are not in full integrity with money. The below brief excerpt beautifully explores the relationship between matters of the soul and matters of finance.

The author of the above essay, Lynne Twist, is an amazing dynamo who is powerfully helping to transform money from being a dirty word to being a concept that can help to transform our lives and world. The below essay is taken from a short, touching speech by a woman who was deeply inspired by both Lynne Twist and Nobel Peace Prize winner Muhammad Yunus of Bangladesh, the wonderfully inspiring founder of the microcredit movement and Grameen Bank.
Give me the power to issue a nation's money,
And I care not who writes the laws.
Mayer Amschel Rothschild, founder of the Rothschild Banking Dynasty
