Charles Eisenstein | Sacred Economics: The Gift We All Have Right Now

Charles Eisenstein

“However stuck you feel, don't feel like you have to immediately go and be something like a carrier of love, forgiveness, charity, or good humor. That's not the message. The message is this: Go recognize your unique gift, the part of you that knows why you are here, and place your full attention on that. That attention is food for that aspect of yourself.” – Charles Eisenstein

Power Quotes From The Show

[click_to_tweet tweet=”Each failure, in service of an ideal, is a declaration of the world that you want to create. Such declarations that are backed by action, and even failed action, exert a powerful pull on reality. – @ceisenstein ” quote=”Each failure, in service of an ideal, is a declaration of the world that you want to create. Such declarations that are backed by action, and even failed action, exert a powerful pull on reality. – @ceisenstein “]

A Declaration Of The World We Want To Create

“Each failure, in service of an ideal, is a declaration of the world that you want to create. Such declarations that are backed by action, and even failed action, exert a powerful pull on reality and reality is not some objective thing outside of ourselves; it's intimately connected to the inner world and to our choices.” – Charles Eisenstein


The Theory Of Morphogenetic Fields

“We're not separate from the world so anything that we do has cosmetic significance. Every choice that we make generates a field. Any act of love, kindness, forgiveness, or generosity creates a field of the same energy which then positively affects the whole world. Maybe someone across the world is now in that field and they become more forgiving or generous too. It's not dependent on them finding out about your act of generosity because someone put it on YouTube, it went viral, and they became inspired when they saw it.” – Charles Eisenstein


Using Our Gifts Towards For Their True Purpose

“So many people come to me saying that they want to do more for the world but they don't have the resources, tools, or support and there's no shortcut for that but there's a process out of that which begins by acknowledging the fluidity of that desire. You're not crazy for wanting that or for feeling trapped and confined in the money, medical, economic, relational or educational system. All of these systems are built on a story that you are wanting to move beyond right now. Each of us has our unique gifts and journeys for a reason.” – Charles Eisenstein
