Stephen's writings are some of the most penetrating I have read in my life. I highly recommend Die Wise as his seminal writing. Having read that Manifesto, I read this Money and Souls Desires book, and then bought the audio to listen to while driving on a long trip. His writing rearranges ones interior landscape in beneficial and profound ways. a great thinker and writer of our times. I had the privilege of trending a weekend with him in this work, and it was a game changer.

A faithfully and well written meditation on the wonderings of money and all that she rubs up against. I have since ordered the audio book, read by the author Stephen Jenkinson himself. This adds for me new insights as I am carried once again through the warp and weft of his insight...this time on the wise voice behind the words. Please, if you are able, go to orphanwisdom.com and find him.

A must read for anyone wanting to wake themselves up to reality of what self worth is and how ideas about money can keep us hoodwinked.

I do not wholly agree with the conclusion that 'usury' cuts the soul off from the community by taking what belongs to the community and making it private. Its interesting that the word money is etymologically connected to memory. The earliest forms of money were indeed just records — strings with knots for exam-ple.

The practice of loaning money at interest, supposedly a Jewish innovation, retains that sense of money as a record of somebody or some group of people's effort, but adds to it the sense of time. So, when a person extends a loan to someone else they do so in the expectation of receiving a similar amount back one day. However, whether this be in the form of money or some other service, there is a sense in which the time a loan is extended also incurs expense of its own. For instance, someone lends a substantial amount to someone else to buy land or build a house, but in the meantime the lended becomes ill, or their children marry and he or she is not able to support them because of the loan.

The interest principle is in this sense a logical and natural extension of the belief that individuals are first and foremost responsible for themselves and for those closest to them. The problem raised in this chapter on usury is the suggestion that interest raises the burden on the debtor unjustly, and that this awareness simultaneously cuts the person extending the loan off from the person who takes the loan, creating 'debt'.

The problem here is that the principle is being confused with instances of its implementation, and especially those instances where other forms of entrenched inequality have promoted real suffering. The reciprocal nature of human relations is precisely one of the most important reasons that we can actually work together and implement projects that last years or generations. In this sense, money simply represents a means of organising such projects.

The only alternative I see is that the 'value' inherent in the efforts of individuals would be entirely subjective which would mean there would be constant conflicts about that value. The injustice attached to money is therefore not inherent to its use per se, but to how it is used in specific instances.

Money...who doesn't have questions and concerns about money? I read this book because my background is one that teaches that money and those whom have a lot of it are evil, or at least of questionable character. As I matured, I realized however that money is a tool and our actions surrounding it are what can be labeled good or evil. I thought this book might further my understanding of my relationship to money and perhaps thereby bring more of it into my life! The author did an excellent job of helping me in the former pursuit. Give me a while and perhaps the latter will follow.

Mr. Jenkinson's treatise is an examination of "where the trouble with money comes from" and how to transform our relationship with money, how to learn from the lessons that money teaches us. He states as his goal in this book to show us what having a "soulful and conscious consideration of money might be like and how money might make the soul's ways come a little more into view...how to live a good authentic and soulful life that includes or even embraces money and the role it plays in it." My favorite part of this book is the thorough examination of the history of currency and usury, which provide a clear understanding of many of the long standing prejudices that exist among Christian-based cultures for money and those who control and lend it. He examines the connection between money and sex - how the way we handle and communicate about one tends to reflect our approach to the other, how the way we "share" our control of money in a relationship informs greatly on the balance of power (perceived or otherwise) within it. There is wisdom and beauty in these pages and I will probably listen to these chapters again.

The author states clearly that his goal is to help men, specifically, to have a better relationship with money and to understand the pressures that being the traditional primary wage earner/provider imposes on them. I forgive the author his conservative male-centric view and listened to the parts specifically about men and heterosexual relationships, understanding that in today's society much of what he writes applies to whoever is the "head of household" or "primary wage earner."

What this book is not, is a prescription for how to make more money, nor how to move forward and fix our relationship to money, however, a close reading of this book will, I believe, go a long way towards helping one to understand the latter, which presumably will influence our ability to achieve the former.

Note: I listened to this as the audio version, read by the author, and found his voice to be pleasant and soothing.
