Infinite Resources

Some resources are finite: coal; oil; gas.

Some are renewable: sunlight; water; plants; wind.

Others are infinite: power; love; compassion; wisdom; hope; sincerity.

I’m not sure where money falls on this list because it is superficial; it represents  odd combinations of the above items.

Infinite resources multiply when they are used and they should frequently be used toward good ends. Finite resources are depleted when they are used and therefore should only be used in emergencies. Renewable resources should be carefully used to meet daily human needs. People should be treated as though they are infinite resources, rather than finite ones.

The three types of resources should not be confounded. We should not have limited hope or love because certain resources are limited. Instead, we can shift collective understanding and sharing of resources by using the infinite resources of unlimited love, hope, and power.
