Oneness Economics

Revised: 17 April 2024

All of the below statements calibrate maximally for truth in support of evolving the economic paradigm and advancing the understanding of money as mirror of nondual realization as well as an interface between life and humanity. The list draws upon the definition of money in Root Meanings, “Money Is Alive and Well,” “Principles of a True Economy,” “Teachings of Money,” and other insights.

The statements below are sorted in descending order of their contribution toward defining a paradigm of “oneness economics.” In other words, the statements that make the greatest contribution toward defining the paradigm are at or near the top. The list is being updated from time to time and at some point the statements will be organized into categories. Meanwhile, they can already serve as an empowerment for anyone who wishes to deepen their understanding of what money is and perhaps participate in evolving the economic paradigm.

For as long as there has been life, so, too, there has been money. The spark of life is the offering of abundance.
Money cannot be evil or negative. Money is not the root of all evil. In profound clarity, money is life and the “love of money” is the love of life.
Money is a benevolent energy that weaves and makes visible the patterns of interdependence that nourish all life forms.
Money is an instrument of the Divine, and all money is always divine.
THAT which YOU are is the source of money.
Though the forms of money are evolving, money itself is always an expression of the divine love that enables the generous exchange of love.
When YOU are supremely Source-realized, all money is yours and indeed YOU create all money. Some seems to flow to and through the personal you and some seems to flow through “others.” As there is clearly no scarcity, there is no accumulation out of fear. Yet all is YOU and all is yours.
Money is a means of caring for one another and all of life.
Money mirrors the extent to which one realizes oneness.
The essence of that which is called money is an overflowing abundance of life. Money is alive, and the real monetary system is life itself.
The level at which society has been engaging with money is, by and large, 2.8 to 3.4 layers removed from what money really is (the living connective tissue of life). This means that we have been working with very limited and distorted forms of money, and for many people these forms of money are clearly not working well. This creates an evolutionary pressure to discover and implement new forms of money that are more just and more functional.
The nature of money is unenclosable. Money always finds ways around borders and other limitations.
The profound nature and higher purpose of money is to heal all individual and collective beliefs in separation, which manifest as scarcity and conflict over apparently scare resources.
The true economy emerges by living in the YES.
When in profound Source-realization YOU realize that YOU are the source of money, YOU can create and direct money simply by recognizing that which is required.
A true economy embodies the awareness of wholeness by continuously circulating the gifts of life and love and distributing them wherever they are needed.
Any unconsciousness in a system leads to unintended harmful consequences, i.e., externalities.
In a true economy:
• Activities that benefit all and harm none are naturally supported.
• People and communities have immense freedom to develop their creativity.
• Human communities and ecosystems are uplifted by economic activity.
• Businesses prosper without compromising the web of life.
• People are supported in realizing their true nature.
Money is a barometer of nondual realization in the sense that the money system will deliver abundance for all as the collective realizes oneness.
Money is an interface between humanity and life.
Money is the relational consciousness of the whole fractal of being, the planetary superorganism, and every other level of life.
Money transcends energy. Some forms of money are energetic.
Notwithstanding all appearances to the contrary, money is infinite, and money is teaching infinitization in addition to oneness, relationship, and responsibility.
The essence of money is also the essence of life.
To create money, love the world. Love creates money.
Awakening to what money really is opens the way for collective enlightenment, in which it is clearly seen that there is only the oneness of love giving love to love.
Money is a teacher of infinitization. The evolution of monetary systems is from apparently finite values to infinite flows.
Money is always working to express creativity and love.
Flows of money are the subtle connective tissue of life, and money itself is alive.
The cortexes of the superorganism are being connected and trained, so to speak, through the money-mediated interactions amongst individuals. This means that money is doing much more than we may think. It is working at a higher level than most of us have ever imagined. Even the apparent failures of our financial systems are part of a learning process that is shaping the emerging superorganism of humanity. The species is learning and becoming more conscious even as the majority of individuals are not yet (as of March 2024) exhibiting higher consciousness. However, once a significant percentage (around 10%) of individuals have seen the pattern of what is occurring, the awakening of consciousness will accelerate exponentially. When that happens we will be immensely grateful toward money for all that it has shown and taught us.
Money is a teacher of nonduality.
Money reveals where a system is not sourcing, usually through constriction of supply.
There is unprecedented financial innovation yet to come as we lean into the question of how we can work with the essence of money. To work with the true nature of money requires using our minds, hearts, intuitive abilities, and the gifts of awakened consciousness. The process of collectively growing up in relation to money is intimately connected with the awakening of consciousness at a species level, and with the practical applications of higher consciousness on a planetary scale.
Money is a powerful teacher and an awakener of collective consciousness, wisdom, and capacities that can heal humanity and the planet. When we look beyond the distorted understandings that have been present in our cultures, we can see money as a force that loves each and every one of us and is helping humanity to become a more mature and capable species. With this awareness we can partner ever more skillfully with money to bring forth a world in which all people, and all beings, are thriving. Money is a sacred ally.
Money is an instrument of a higher level of mind (cf. Sri Aurobindo’s Supermind) that is creating a more evolved version of humanity through the activities of humanity in its present state.
When oneness with Money is realized, one can direct money by recognizing that which is required.
Money mirrors the loving truth as well as that which is ready to be seen and transformed.
Money is a teacher of true relationship and oneness.
Money is a teacher of wholeness and oneness.
Money is the currency of aliveness (some forms of which are expressed as energy), which is always flowing.
The supreme teaching of money is oneness. Money illuminates the all-loving oneness of creation and offers the fullness of life to all.
When love is realized in fullness, the teaching of money is complete and the human heart and mind are healed.
Money channels unlimited creative energy into manifestation.
Money facilitates evolution, and not just for humans.
Money facilitates the coordination of increasingly complex activities among individuals.
Money is a means of circulating love.

Money supplies all of the requirements of life.
The system of money is the system of all that is alive.
Whereas some forms of money are tangible, the essence of money is intangible.
A true money system is an expression of the ultimate interrelatedness, which is oneness.
Distributed and decentralized Blockchain technologies are 1.2 layers removed from what money is, and the Sharing Economy is 0.7 layers removed from what money is. A regenerative economic system developed by LOVE TO is already working with the essence of money, i.e., at 0.0 layers removed from what money is. (Disclosure: The author is close to LOVE TO, which is why he is familiar with the system.) These calibrations point the way to future economic systems that will work with money ever more directly, with less and less distortion, which will provide more benefit to all.
A nondual economic paradigm recognizes that all is one and that all forms of exchange are expressions of oneness.
Money is a creative force for good.
Money is a sacred ally.
Money is alive and it has consciousness.
Money is aliveness.
Money is the active aspect of life.
Money is the currency of life.
Money itself is, and always will be, alive and well.
The more closely we work with money as it really is, the more agency and power we have, and the more benefit we contribute to the world. By partnering with money, we align with the evolution of life from single-cell organisms to collaborating multicellular organisms to awakened, co-creative collectives or superorganisms. True power comes from aligning with the organizing principles of life, and by cultivating a healthy partnership with money we can use this power to create a vastly more conscious human civilization.
The most progressive philanthropy is still (as of March 2024) 1.1 layers removed from what money really is.
The true economy is the economy of enlightment.
“If you want to see and experience a true economy, be a true economy.”
Money is flowing information.
All currents of energy are money.
Flows of money are the subtle and often-invisible connective tissue of being.
Money has an agenda: It supports the enlightenment of living systems, which leads to their flourishing.
Knowing money as a powerful spiritual teacher, the appropriate response is to listen, learn, and receive its gifts.
Humans did not invent what money really is. Instead, money as such is working through humans, preparing individuals for a higher communion and weaving people by degrees into a global sentience, similar to Pierre Teilhard de Chardin’s theory of the noosphere.
