Money, Simplified

Save a dollar — what does that mean? Is the dollar in danger? Is it in dire need of my help? And how do I know which dollar it is I’m to save? How will I recognize it among other dollars? Will any dollar do? What happens if I save the wrong dollar, a dollar that doesn’t want to be saved, or doesn’t need saving at all, a dollar on a mission of its own, a mission of kindness, of generosity, of joy, abundance, and spirited good health? What could be worse, what could be more tragic, than interfering with such a dollar by hoarding it and calling it my own?
