The Economy of Life

In inner alchemy Life is a thing. A force. You can gain it, lose it, transmute it. Every day we spend it. We spend our life, in attention, in actions, inside a time frame. What we buy are experiences, insights, and change.

Every moment of your life you are changing. Every moment of your life you are exchanging life for an experience. What are you buying? Do you even know?

What is worth spending the fortune of your life? What monumental experience would you gamble all in for?

What would you spend your life on?

It's the warrior's ethic. Life ends. Choose a worthy death. Lead a meaningful life.

Caveat Emptor.
