Honor our need, and the world’s need, for joy

Camus makes the following recommendation in his critical essay: 

One must keep a freshness and a source of joy intact within, loving the daylight that injustice leaves unscathed, and returning to the fray with this light as a trophy. 

This joy is the love we can never lose. The secret heaven inside that nobody can touch or take away from us. And if we don’t honor our need for it, we will never find emancipation from the inevitable anxiety of life. 

Nor will life benefit from the unique gifts we, and only we, can deliver to the world. 

That’s the problem with joy. People underrate is as a legitimate currency of exchange. It’s not viewed as having real value. 

As an example, imagine you have a brilliant friend who just launched a new documentary. You would love to support her art, but you’re as a broke as a junkie on the side of the highway. 

But what if there was a way to donate something that you actually have in abundance? 

Introducing my new invention. 

Monatae is an alternative financing crowdfunding platform where people can donate emotional currencies such as trust, joy, encouragements, empathy, compassion, attention, influence and knowledge to their favorite projects. 

It’s the perfect solution. After all, each of us possesses a natural transcendent capacity for eternal joy. Each of us has access to the inviolable and wonderfully somatic, luminous sense of being vitally alive. 

Why not pay it forward? 

Even if we have already wasted all our money on hookers and cocaine, we can still use this new platform. 

Monatae. Support people’s ventures with emotional capital. 


How are you intensifying the sum of joy in the world?
