Now we have the new notion of money that it isn’t always bad, we can relate to it differently. Instead of rejecting it completely, we can take an active role in the circulation of money, because rejecting it means we are leaving it in the hands of people who don’t give a damn about how it should be earned or how it should be spent.
We, on the other hand, are willing to earn and spend money in a positive way, so we are the ones who should be in the game, not the other way around.
How can we earn money positively?
By conducting a Sanpo-Yoshi business. A business of three-way satisfaction. I described how to choose a Sanpo-Yoshi business in detail in the book Zen and a Way of Sustainable Prosperity.
How can we spend money positively?
By shopping locally, we can enhance the local economy of our area. By buying environmentally friendly products and services, we can support those businesses. By supporting socially just companies, we can encourage more companies to conduct ethical labor practices. And by investing in above businesses, we can change the culture of our economic activities.
