MoneyWhen you find religion, you find money as these two tenets in life are married to one another. Within these two entities, you’ll also find their bastard stepchild, government, as all 3 are perpetually tied to each other.I often ask people, “If there was no such thing as money, then what would you be doing with your life?” This will give you an idea of what your life purpose should be if you were not influenced by the almighty dollar.While money can simply be viewed as another form of energy, neither positive or negative, it also takes us away from our true, natural selves along with what is truly important in our lives.We are all economic slaves to the system. How many of us work 40+ hours a week only to find ourselves so drained at the end of the day that we don’t want to do anything other than relax and watch TV?That means that you are working 40+ hours so you can enjoy yourself for the weekend. In essence, you are an economic slave for 5 days to the corporations, in exchange for 2 days to yourself. Does this sound fair? And how are you spending these two days? Are you helping to make this world a better place, or are you simply recharging your batteries so you can go back to being a slave to these corporations who drained your battery in the first place?Solution: We live in a society that relies on money for existence. Some people are able to get off the grid completely, but they are few and far between. Find whatever it is that truly makes you happy, then find ways to make a living doing it. There may be a time when you have to work your current job while building a new career, but in the end, you’ll find that working for yourself is much more gratifying than working some job that you hate for a boss who is an a*hole.Also, stop supporting these companies that keep us living as economic slaves. Buy local.
