When we are young, we find money to be a mysterious object. Once we grow older, and graduate from college with a degree, we realize the true importance of money. Money, in essence is something that controls the world. If you can control money, you can control the entire world. Thus, many people in history have employed dubious methods to usurp money as money is the key to all power in the world. And, as men crave power, they run after money for their entire lives. In order to break from the shackles of money and take charge of our lives, we must examine what money does to our societies and find a deeper meaning of money.
Have you ever asked yourself: Why must money control your whole life? We are all involved in this rat race to the top where we respect people with money while shun people who don’t have money. We are so caught up in this chase after money that we begin to neglect our health, well-being and our peace of mind just for a few quick bucks. Some people even commit heinous crimes just to get a hold of money. Some have even killed in the name of money. In pursuit of money, people are losing their humanity.
Instead of valuing money to such a high degree, we need to put more importance in valuing intellect and human beings. Living a materialistic life will not fill the empty void in our souls, and yet, many have tried doing that. People are so caught up in the banking and financial systems that they lose their soul. But the banks were created to transfer wealth from the masses to the elites. In essence, money is being taken out from the general population, making them poor for the benefit of a few individuals who are amassing massive amounts of wealth and power. Unfortunately, for this reason, power and wealth has accumulated right to the top, and so only a few people control the entire world in this modern age.
If we thought about money with clarity, we would realize that we are letting this paper currency control our whole lives. Money used to be a valuable commodity in the medieval times, but ever since the industrial age and with the advent of fiat currency, money can be created out of thin air. Have you ever realized that the entire currency supply is basically a tool that the banks use to trap us into debt and control our lives? Employing such dubious means and hiding behind the façade of complicated definitions of our economy, we have let the banks to control our way of life, thereby destroying our society and our way of life.
We need to stop letting our freedoms being snatched away by the big banks and the corrupt and evil government. The primary tool that the elites use to control us is money. But this paper money is fake and we all have collectively duped ourselves into giving this paper note any value. Once we start understanding the true essence of money and start educating ourselves about having a healthy relationship with money, we can start unshackling ourselves from the control of the elites and master our destiny.
Never allow yourself to go into debt and see your whole life be destroyed by high interest loans. Learn to appreciate minimalism and stop running around this consumerist society and stop buying things that don’t add value to your life. You don’t need two cars, neither do you need an expensive home. People who live simple lives are the ones who are truly happy.
