Zero Currency. Living Money Free for 9 Years.
Daniel has not used money in any way for 9 years. A middle aged former Peace Corps volunteer and social worker, he describes the events that led to giving up money completely from the cave where he now lives, located in the breathtaking canyons outside Arches National Park. Set against the backdrop of America's recent financial crisis, Daniel's philosophical, political, and spiritual tenets that guide his life free of credit and debt become startlingly immediate and challenge us to examine how money affects our true nature while providing a provocative glimpse into what life may be like in it's total absence.

Money makes the Human Worthless - HoM37
why do you think you have to have purpose to feel worthy? to believe in someone or something to be worthy? fear of death. fear of aging. survival. problem of money. ..all total bullshit. Human beings give value and worth and definition to things. There is no such thing as money. it's an illusion. It's been like this for awhile now. Get used to it.

The pressure to buy and to own, she feels, has intensified in recent years. Consumerism is essentially about “an attempt to fill an empty space inside. And that emptiness, and the fear of loss, is manipulated by the media or big companies.” There is a fear, she says, that in not buying or owning an individual will fall out of society. The irony, she claims, is that material goods can never plug a spiritual hole and shopping and hoarding are more likely to isolate people than bring contentment.

"When I lived with money, I was always lacking," he writes. "Money represents lack. Money represents things in the past (debt) and things in the future (credit), but money never represents what is present.
