I would disagree here, what RS is actually saying is that money is not real...nothing is. There's no money, it's not moving in or out of your hologram, you don't ever have more or less of it because it's not really there to begin with.
If you really read BG, what he is saying you should do to "bust loose" is to totally stop keeping track of money at all. That is terrifying to me, so clearly it's something I need to look at. I'm processing it.
I don't know why his salesmanship is bothering me so much. I am willing to believe that it's just a game he wants to play. Maybe because it's a game that I personally detest I'm just turned off by it.
