There is a very subtle point I have been trying to make with this comparison but I'm having a hard time putting it into words, it seems there are no words to describe it. It's like your trading a greater for a lesser, acts of kindness for money, a pure for an impure, it makes no sense, it's a contradiction. When you help someone your reward is heartfelt, you feel it inside, you feel better about yourself but you don't do it for a reward. Why taint it with the motive of acquiring money? It's about helping and serving the other person, not about serving yourself by getting something like money out of it. Serve the other and not yourself.
I laid out several good examples but it seems still no one gets it. I thought this was a sort of spiritual forum!
You may think you've laid down some good examples - but it's the same old crap really. Heard it all before. You're repeating the same old argument. It's been thoroughly fleshed out and countered many times over. How crazy we must all be for allowing to value ourselves, right? We musn't be spiritual at all!
I don't think it's fair you've used your limiting beliefs about money to chastise people who don't see it the same way.
That being said, this is all within reason. If your paying $800 for only half an hour or even an hour with one person - then you'd wanna bloody make sure it's worth it. Me personally - i don't care how good you are- $800 is going to feed my family for 2 weeks so they ( The psychic) can dream on lol.
