Gold Coins: A Matter of Perspective
If the gold coins have come to you, they’re asking you, quite literally, to consider your perspective toward money. In the fable, a group of coins sits in their treasure chest, not silently, but reflecting with each other on the ways they have been used by humans. There’s the man who was so nervous about having them he dropped one down a drain. But there’s also the young girl who picked one up as part of her collection to save for buying her first house. Other perspectives? Without judgment, what’s your own perspective toward money? Have you even thought about it? The gold coins, by virtue of their own value, are asking you to, in a way more consciously than we often do, reflect on what is of most value to us and to actively consider the ways the presence physical money can in good ways add to the quality of our lives.
