REMOVING CONSULTATION FEES
I have decided to abolish all my consultation fees.
I don’t know if this is a good or bad idea.
I don’t have a wealth of money to back up my decision.
I don’t know if I can sustain this model.
Yet I feel compelled to act in this way.
I am not against money, yet it is just a man made concept of our current civilization.
As humans, we have created a numerical value for the paper and metal we call money. This symbol is often taken all too seriously by many people.
Personally, I find it difficult to allocate a symbolic value as a price for the service I offer.
It’s not that I think I am worth too much or too little, in fact, who I am and what I do has nothing to do with a monetary value and this also applies to every human being. But most humans believe what they do is worthy of monetary value. Isn’t that an illusion or simply a matter of perception?
Perhaps, I could simply stop over thinking and charge a competitive rate based on the average of what my colleagues charge. To be part of this society we must abide by the codes and concepts that we have created, even if we don’t agree with them. This means I should suppress my yearning to follow my heart and revert to the logical rules of the game. For that is what it is – “a game”.
A game for which we must continue to play as we created the game, we created the rules and we continue to sculpture the future of it. That is why, in this particular section of the game, I’m going to continue to follow my heart and remove my fees.
