If thoughts are things, you can sell them, too.
Information Age- content and ideas can be commodified + sold as digital products cuz people spend energy (money) to acquire an essence/ feeling. Physical goods represent energies which can be bought + translated into good essence feelings for the consumer.
Perhaps even if you don’t commodify your ideas, the universe will circulate back to you the resources to subsist/ survive/ succeed, if you share that energy/ love intentionally- even if just silently thru chakras. The point is that feeling good (the result of choosing of ‘good’ thoughts) will create a resonance that will attract others in our human/ universe to keep us alive, because we benefit its evolution.
This is serving God, not money: to do what creates good feelings directly (in present moment) instead of ‘working hard’ just for a paycheck, but feeling bad in the process cuz its demoralizing to be a slave. That’s why employee-owned is generally better. The more connected people feel, the more we evolve. The human community supports individuals who help elevate our consciousness. It has to, by universal law, to ensure our collective survival.
This is the love of money: seeking heat without putting wood into the fire. To serve God is to recognize that wood (inner source) is the cause of heat (effect/ essence). It is better to give than receive cuz without wood there is no heat. Feeling good is the wood.
