Work, Sex, and Money

January 21, 2011

As Buddhist practitioners or practitioners of meditation, we are supposed to be immersed in the contemplative tradition and spiritual practice. Why would we discuss work, sex, and money? On the other hand, we are not strictly spiritual or religious at all. People have to look for work. They have to find a J-O-B. We work for money. We may find that we are building our lives around sex and more generally on relationships. Then the question is, are we really working on spirituality or not? Do you think spirituality is something purely transcendental? It's questionable. Real spirituality might have something to do with ordinary life.

From "The Sacred Society," in WORK, SEX, MONEY: Real Life on the Path of Mindfulness, page 1
