Chogyam Trungpa: How to see money as the basis of energy and discipline

“We must try to discover how to view this embarrassing and potent commodity (money) as a part of ourselves that we cannot ignore. When we relate to money properly, it is no longer a mere token of exchange or of abstract energy; it is also a discipline. No longer hooked by it as a medicine that has become a drug, we can deal with it in a practical, earthly way as a master deals with his tools.”
