Spirit energizes all of us—either the Spirit of the times or the Divine Spirit. It is the Divine Spirit that creates a different economic story in us from what we hear in the prevailing conversations because she views reality differently and speaks from that different paradigm.
OneEarth economics recognizes the inherent connection between economics and spiritual practice. Current economics suffers from its excessive efforts to disconnect from spirit. David Korten, in launching his book, Agenda for a New Economy, said, “It comes down to a basic question: What purpose do we expect the economy to serve? The answer is ultimately spiritual.” He went on to say that the economy will serve a god, either the God of Life or a god of death.
