Can you create value out of thin air?

So where does real money and wealth come from? Most people believe that money exists separate and apart from themselves. That money is “out there” and is something to be obtained. They feel that it has intrinsic value of its own, and that in order to be wealthy, they must do something to “go get it.” They feel that it is like some kind of fruit hanging high in the branches of a distant tree – if only they could reach it.

They feel poor without it and powerful with it. It is as though this external, tangible substance is their life force. Without it – they are empty. Powerless.

But the truth is that all the money, all the power, and all the wealth in the universe is not “out there” waiting to be gotten. It is within us, waiting to be released from our inner being, like sweat, secreted from our very pores.
