Do you think money is the Satan in your life? Is money causing all the problems in your life? You could not do what you really wanted because of financial freedom? Is money so important in your life? Do you think money is the root of all evil?
I have seen people struggle their life to earn money and they claim that it is source of all evil in the world. If they are so sure of it then why do they have to struggle so much all their life to earn the source of all evil. I would prefer not to earn evil. Why on earth should I earn evil? Does it make sense? I love money. I love the concept of money. The concept is very simple.
Money stands for trade. You earn money by shelling out your brains or muscles or creativity or something that you have. Employees trade their time for money from Employers. Businessmen trade their goods for money. Basically money is just used as a means of trade. If you can’t understand the concept of money then you should not claim that money is the source of all evil. I have noticed many people say that money is bad thing or evil thing and all that but they slog big time for the money. Why this double standard? I have asked this question to many and their response is more or less similar, money is required for sustenance and we are in pursuit of that. I asked them what is according to you is sustenance? According to me, sustenance means good food, good shelter and good clothing. That is it. Anything more than the basic things is luxury according to me. Don’t you think so? For them sustenance means leading a luxurious life but they won’t accept that it is luxury and they argue with me that it is the most basic thing. I feel that they are not in a position to understand what luxury and basic necessity is.
I always feel that money can be made easily only if you understand how money works and the best part is that everyone can know it and the knowledge to make money and more money is all around the world but few are successful with it cause they feel money is just money and they don’t attach any significant value to it. They realize that it is just meant for trade and they trade it for what they want. But for some people money has some value attached to it and these people are the same ones who struggle big time to make money and at the end of the day claim it is the source of all evil. You must be wondering I am crazy and addicted to money. I am not. I know how to trade. I know what I want in life and what money can get me in life.
I am sure you must have heard of the fox and grapes story. Just like the fox which could not get the grapes thinks that the grapes are sour, people who do not understand the concept of money and its value think that money is the evil. Money has the power to do what you want to do. It gives you all the wonderful possibilities in the world that you never dreamt off.
Money is not evil and never can be evil. It is just meant for the trade. Don’t attach any value to money, use it for trading. You can’t use your skill at all places to earn your living; it is better to have a medium of exchange and that medium is no ways going to be evil.
Still you think MONEY is the SATAN?
pertinent point, specially in these days of blame games about greed.
I agree with you, that its not money that is the source of evil. The real source is the greed. The point at which a luxury becomes a necessity , is the point where money becomes “evil”.
