The old saying of conventional wisdom – “There is no free lunch” – works hand-in-hand with another “If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.” “No free lunch” is a reminder that anything worthy is worth working for, and nothing is really free. If it looks free on the surface, you can be sure there is a hidden price, or maybe a price that comes later. There is actually a sound, logical, and observable meaning to it. Everywhere in nature, all organic beings, must put in the work first, BEFORE they get the reward. This is true for the wolf that has to spend many hours hunting and scrounging before finding enough to eat. It is true for the bee who must fly around tirelessly visiting flower after flower, avoiding numerous hazards, before finally getting the reward of the pollen. And it’s true for you – you have to put in the hours at work before you get a paycheck. The wolf learns that if someone is bringing him his food, it’s probably because he is about to be shot, trapped or caged. If the bee has flowers set right outside his door, it might mean he is in an artificial human managed bee hive. And if someone is giving you money for no apparent reason, you can be sure there is a reason hiding in there somewhere; a hidden price that likely will appear at a time when you are least expecting it.
