Lot’s of what we need today comes from a store. Our industrial culture has made the market the primary mediator of almost all provision. We take our goods and services into the market, searching for clients, so that we might exchange our goods or services for money. With that money we can re-enter the market to purchase the provision we actually need. However the market is not the true provider.
Let’s look at food as an example. We might imagine the time when humanity lived more closely to the land. It would be easier then to see that all food came from nature. Today such provision is mediated by industry. The source of the food, the actual provider, is masked by the market.
Here it is important to look for the source, not just the mediator. For the source will teach us of the truth. The voices in the market may be bent under the pressure to sell, but the source has the ability to be generous beyond measure. The mediators should be trusted, but can fall out of trust. The source is steadfast.
