Not Reducing Creativity to Monetary Terms

May 10, 2011

People’s creativity is very much alive, but when they get paid for their creativity, they often experience that as rather meaningless. Money as the reward for their creative process is very one-dimensional, a tremendous comedown. That’s why it is sad to reduce every creative force to monetary terms. It’s terribly sad, sacrilegious in a sense.

From “The Question of Money,” in Work, Sex, Money: Real Life on the Path of Mindfulness, page 154.
