“Gertrude taught me that money is like water. Money flows through all our lives, sometimes like a rushing river and sometimes like a trickle. When it is flowing, it can purify, cleanse, create growth and nourish. But when it is blocked or held too long, it can grow stagnant and toxic to those withholding or hoarding it.
“Like water, money is a carrier. It can carry blessed energy, possibility and intention, or it can carry control, domination and guilt. It can be a current or currency of love–a conduit for commitment–or a carrier of hurt or harm. We can be flooded with money and drown in its excess, and when we dam it up unnecessarily, we keep it out of circulation to the detriment of others.”
~ Lynne Twist, from The Soul of Money
