This is something that has for some time been a daily concern for me, as it probably is (I'm guessing, but it's a good guess, I believe) for many people who are on a spiritual path. I frequently feel the need for mental clarity on this very important part of life in the dream/illusion. Maybe an individual has calculated a way to monetize the no-thing-ness they have discovered (and genuine spirituality is all very nice, etc. etc.) but seriously, no-thing-ness itself doesn't pay the bills.
"Q: So, how does the unfolding of non-motivation relate to issues, like earning money, that need motivation and desire to manifest?
Adya: The making of money is a necessary part of life and can be motivated by many drives. Among them, the drive to succeed, to acquire wealth beyond what is needed, to feel worthy, to have power, etc. However, the need to earn money to support your life, and possibly the life of your family, is a simple necessity. That is the motivation. And as such, it is an act of love. Your job in speculation and investing may require quick action and commitment, but not aversion and grasping. I know people who do investing and speculation and they do not do it from an emotional space of aversion and greedy desire but from wisdom and experience. Of course you must make money in ways that feel in integrity for you, but the underlying emotions are brought to the job by each of us, they do not exist in the job itself, as long as the job embodies basic moral principles and can be carried out with integrity. If not, it is time to look for something else to do. You see, as we drop the ego and all of the egoic motivations, what we are left with is acting from love. We do what we do out of love. Love for life, love for family, love for humanity. And love transcends all egoic motivations. Love is liberation in action."
