Listen to the full episode:

Do material things matter on the spiritual path?

Is it “unspiritual” to think about money?

Does that make you materialistic?

For the genuine truth-seeker there are a lot of confusing messages about money, materialism and true spirituality.

Let’s get some clarity!

Tune in to this week’s episode for a discussion with Richard about why engaging with the world around us is the key to our spiritual evolution.

    Great show. Complicated topic. Thank you for the reference to Meditation for the age. Went to the Aetherius Cloud to listen to it. Would it be helpful to mention the Aetherius cloud on your podcasts? Thank you for all you do. These conversations are really important especially during these chaotic times.

      Hey Scott, great to hear from you and thanks for the comments. I love that the teachings are so clear and practical – profound wisdom we can use to navigate both the big and everyday questions that we have. Re Aetherius Cloud – good point! Blessings, Darren

    Hi, interesting show. If asked, I would respond by saying detachment is not that you should own nothing, but that nothing should own you.

      Divandra – good thoughts, thank you. I would go one step further and say that you should be master of it – to deploy all your resources in selfless service to others; at least to ensure you are in a position yourself to help others, and then to help others as much as possible in your chosen way. Blessings, Darren
