I talked about our relationships with money, wealth, poverty, and love as reflected in comics, cartoons, and TED talks. I discussed recent comic strips from Doonesbury and Stone Soup that reveal our dilemma with money. I played an episode from the Berenstein Bears TV series "The Trouble With Money" and I read from the book. Both reveal the danger of turning spiritual experiences into money-making opportunities that make you sacrifice your relationships and spiritual experiences. The way to avoid this danger is by shifting from anti-social behavior (spending money only on yourself) to pro-social behavior (spending money to help other people, regardless of the amount).
