I love shoes. I’ve written about them many times, probably more than anything else. I guess I can’t help it. I just love them.
I probably have too many. Big Deal.
No one is starving because of my obsession with shoes. If anything, the person who makes them is likely feeding their family from the proceeds. I would like to think I am helping the economy.
The economy is like energy, there has to be a give and take flow in order for it to work. When you buy shoes, or food, or cars, or homes or even just a pack of gum you are contributing to the flow. When you go to work and create or support or provide service you are contributing to the flow.
Not doing any of those things merely stops up the energy like a two-year-old tossing a plastic dinosaur into the toilet. I suppose that, too, contributes since you have to call a plumber to come dig Dino from the sewer. Plumbers eat well because of two-year-olds and toys.
If you take something without an exchange or create harm, you might have to pay a fine, go to jail, or get sued. All of which also stop the flow of energy.
By keeping the energy flowing, you create room in your life for more abundance, prosperity, success and just plain joy. Allow yourself to receive and it will be easier to give.
Or just go buy a pair of shoes so someone can have a nice dinner with their family.
