Diamond - The Crossing Point of Money and Spirituality

Money is a tool for exchanging, a power, a belief, a game, a drug and a symbol of capitalism.
Spirituality is you, your existence. 

I don’t believe in the capitalistic way of working, living, acting or loving. I mean something like rushing, high speed, no breaks, non stop, always just more and more.
I need a break. I need rest. I need time to think and to be confused. I need to stop. I need to slow down. I need empty space and time. I need to think with my body. I need to dance.
