“Happy without money!” is the name of the book from Raphael Fellmer, who lived five and a half years completely without money. Happy. Yes, if you are obviously depending on others to survive, you realize how loving other people can be. You also have to be friendly, of course - or become friendly - and even if Raphael has been very friendly before, his heartiness and warmth are overwhelming.
During his personal money-strike, Raphael developed a special eye to our ecological footprint and for everything that is getting wasted. We are living in abundance, not only there is enough for everyone, but there is more than enough. Everything that is overproduced, is landing in the garbage. The mission Raphael took up, is to bring back into circulation what it would otherwise go to waste. So that nobody would starve anymore or sleep outside in the cold. A dream, to which Raphael wanted to commit to already as a child.
He started with the foodsaving-movement, and later he became co-founder of “foodsharing”. His new project “yunity” should connect people, so that not only food, but anything could be shared. Raphael says with a radiant smile:
“The most basic things of life, be it joy, love - if we share them, we don’t have less of it, but more.”
Learning to share. Definitely an essential step towards a money-free society.
The conversation between Raphael fellmer and Bilbo Calvez was recorded on May 10th 2016 in Bissingen an der Teck, Germany

„Glücklich ohne Geld“ heißt das Buch von Raphael Fellmer, der fünfeinhalb Jahre ganz ohne Geld gelebt hat. Glücklich. Ja, wenn man von anderen zum Überleben so offensichtlich abhängig ist, wird einem bewusst, wie herzlich andere sein können. Freundlich muss man natürlich auch sein – oder werden – und obwohl Raphael sicher früher schon sehr freundlich war, ist seine Herzlichkeit und Wärme überwältigend.
