4) The sharing of resources
Because of the experience of unity with others, the idea of holding onto what is 'mine' no longer makes sense. There is a self-identity but it is part of a greater whole and this whole is also part of one's self-identity. For this reason, having more than others does not contribute to a sense of well-being in the way that it did in the past, for the 'others' are oneself as well. This experience gives rise to a new economic life with a new foundation - one which ends division among the wealthy who 'have' and the poor who 'have not'.

Emotional factors limiting willingness to participate in the sharing of resources include:

Resolution within the experience of trust:
A deepening experience of God's reality which comes to the awakening soul, permits the understanding that one is never alone but always held within the embrace of love and spiritual purpose. Therefore, though things can happen in life that are upsetting and difficult, there is the continuing sense that these things are purposeful, and that in some unknown way there is goodness, mercy, and love behind or around them. Realizing that mercy exists and being aware of God's continual benevolent presence, allows us to relax our grip on control. For being in control of life in the first place is not real, and in the second place is not needed. The experience of God's love as a direct, embodied experience conveys a sense of peace and wellbeing that lets the self know that everything is alright and that things do not have to be held onto with a fierceness that comes from fear.
