You heard that right! People can shout from rooftops all they want about the evils of materialism but the fact is, having obscene amounts of money is a great motivating factor for almost all human beings. We dream about it, hanker for it, compete and fight for it. But every single person wants it for the simple reason that money gives you an edge over almost everything.
It’s true that money can’t buy you happiness. But honestly, happiness by its very essence is short-lived. Stay happy for too long and you start getting complacent. Stay complacent for too long and you are on the road to extinction. We are looking at the role of money all wrong. We don’t need money to survive. Our cavemen ancestors did just fine!
I find it hilarious when Spiritual or self-help gurus talk about the evils of money. People are not enslaved to money. They are enslaved by the pleasures that money makes possible. Take away the cravings and addictions and suddenly money will develop a halo on its head. Take away the need for instant gratification and voila! Instant peace.
Yes, Money can't buy you happiness but the fact is that it was 𝗡𝗘𝗩𝗘𝗥 𝗦𝗨𝗣𝗣𝗢𝗦𝗘𝗗 𝗧𝗢!
Let that sink in…… Money was and is just a tool of exchange.
You want happiness? Mediate, chat with friends, go dancing or give your time selflessly to someone who needs it. What does money have to with it anyways? :-)
