When Is Enough, Enough?

It seems that there is never enough money.  Exactly, when do we have enough money?  All that many of us think about is money.  For the sake of money, we give away our power and our soul.  Subconsciously, we think that we will bring what we amass with us to our next life.  How ridiculous is that?  Frankly, it is disgusting.  Perhaps, it is the “root of all evil.”  How many people who have amassed great wealth were, are, and will continue to be evil? (“Evil” as in selfish, narcissistic, ignorant of the world’s poor, disenfranchised, uneducated, and disabled, victims of natural disasters…and the list goes on.)

I am disgusted with myself.  I am disgusted with our society.  Since when should the main topic of the basic laws of attraction, known for generations since the beginning of time, be about money and abundance.  Power seems to be misconstrued with how much money we have.  This is not power. This is one of the biggest lies out there.  Rather than gaining power through money, you lose it.  You are submissive to money.  You become a slave to your desires.  Whatever happened to some of the other principles associated with the other side of the coin, so to speak?  Would it not be better to be submissive to those other principles?  The opposite of greed would be generosity.  Do we think about this enough?  I know that I do not.

The bottom line with accumulating money and wealth and property is that it will drive you crazy.  It drives me crazy.  Every day, I see the same insanity.  I think and feel that idolizing money is an addiction like any other addiction.  Perhaps, it may be the worst one of them all.  Think about the number of wars that have been conducted, how many people have been killed, and for what?  We sell out our avaricious soul for something that is cheap, perhaps even dirty.  Why so many people, including myself, are driven by money is simply beyond me?  Money does not simplify–it complicates.  Without recognizing its consuming power, like any other addiction, it can fully destroy one’s being.

As simple as it sounds, it is interesting to watch marketing efforts.  It is interesting to watch the exchange of money.  In the minds of many, the exchange of money is regarded as an exchange of power.  It goes from one hand to another.  The vibe of that kind of power exchange is really kind of vile.  It is cold.  The thought that abundance comes from money is inherently and utterly false.  I wonder what would happen if we simply stopped desiring money.  Rather than desiring more, what if we detached ourselves?  Imagine what life would be like if we were not stressing out about the need for more money.  Actually, without that stress, we might be more authentically ourselves.  By being our true selves, it would seem that we would attract more people to our interest and the interests of others.  By being more personally authentic, we could help others more; we could help ourselves more.  God forbid if we turned our focus out of ourselves.  If there is a God, for most certainly there is, He would want that.

  1. Yeah, I feel like if I won the lottery, it would be the end of me. Ruin me. I’d give most of it to charities – I just want ‘enough’. Not to stress out about a car problem, or a family member needing medical help. And yes, a home, paid for, (humble home) would be nice. Just not to put something back in the grocery checkout.
