BARBARA WILDER

"Money is quite possibly the most misunderstood commodity in the world. We all need it. Most of us want more of it. Few of us have enough of it. And a great many of us hate the damned stuff. Its been called the root of all evil, dirty money, and filthy lucre to name just a few of its nicknames. For the past two thousand years people have equated poverty and spirituality. The picture in our minds of holy men and women wearing sackcloth and ashes makes it almost impossible for us to believe that we can have both enlightenment and wealth. After all, "A camel can pass through the eye of a needle more easily than a rich man can enter the kingdom of heaven." or so weve been told our entire lives. Jesus threw the Money Changers out of the temple. Monks and nuns lived lives of poverty in monasteries for two thousand years, and in Asia Buddhist monks have been carrying their rice bowls, begging for food, for even longer."

Barbara Wilder

But is that the reality of money? Can we spiritualize something we have come to view as evil? Barbara says, "yes, we can and we must."
