Economy, true - begins with exercising vigilance

The increased presence of appliances and products makes it possible for humans to correct their mistakes, their clumsiness and their negligence: they can glue and repair things, put them right and clean and take care of them... And look at how much advertising there is for all these appliances and products! But no one thinks about the psychological and moral side of the matter, that is to say, how people can be made to be more attentive to their gestures and their thoughts. Why pay attention, why be careful, when there are pharmacies, hospitals, garages, dry-cleaners, hardware shops, and so on? It’s true that extraordinary progress has been made in the material domain, but what about the spiritual domain? And then people talk of economy! True economy is being attentive and sensible; the other economy, the one economists talk about, in reality only encourages spending, and even waste. If you would like to practise true economy and have the physical and psychological means to help others, you must pay attention and master your thoughts and gestures.
