Prana is a Sanskrit word referring to the breath, life force, or vital principle that applies to all matter, animate or otherwise. This ancient concept has been applied not only within Hindu philosophy, but also in practices of medicine, martial arts, and classical yoga. The idea of prana, the breath of life—connecting our breathing and bodies to essential matter like the sun and life’s elements—represents a powerful unifying force for sharing an eternal exchange.
People naturally share when sharing is an integral part of their culture or tradition. Economies based on giving and sharing rather than taking, will become the new standard for communities of all kinds. Control of the economy has been in the hands of a select few for far too long. We are past due for a radical redistribution of power and widespread circulation of wealth.
