The world values money, assets, and toys — we insist on accumulating to impress others (who mostly don’t actually give a damn) and in fact, it places a lot of emphasis on financial achievement generally.
There are no pockets in a shroud.
Don’t get me wrong, there is little wrong with money per se. We all love the stuff and it certainly is preferable to a life with no money at all, but if we are so consumed with money and the power it gives us then it’s a sad existence we weave.
Financial success is overstated and you forget how important people are in the middle of all this crazy accumulation, re-evaluate your life, klok some memories, emotions, sentiments, and perhaps a little life advice.
Treat everyone with love and respect — even your “enemies.” Treat the janitor the same way you would treat the president of the company you work for. Realize that everyone really just wants to be loved, accepted, and affirmed. It’s pretty simple. So live by the “Golden Rule”.
Do unto others as you would have done unto you.
