Eye of Providence
The Eye of God overlooking humanity. Here the symbol is found on the seal of the American Dollar bill. The origins of this speaking of 'in God we Trust' He looks down over the 13 states and all dealings.
The separation of Church & State. With religion isolated from commerce we have capatilism with one God - the God of money. Money has become an end goal and a result in itself.
Have we separated ourselves from the inner richness that comes from experiencing the things that money can by? Have we lost the 'true value' of life experience when we have a subliminal spirituality in the form of marketing and branding of commercial goods & services? Does consumption replace the appreciation and enjoyment of what life truly has to offer us?
And if we fear money, does that mean we fear life itself?
