Money makes the world go round, well at least that is what people like to say. It is the thing that some people life, work, and die for. Many people believe that by having more money their lives will be better. They convince themselves into believing all the problems in their life will be solved if they had more money. While money may provide temporary solutions to current life struggles, money does not, will not, and cannot be a remedy to internal pain and suffering. That type of healing must come from within.
Money is not the solution to our problems, our relationship to money is the problem. We have developed an internalized belief that money solves everything. We have yet to realized that the more we focus on money, the further away we move from our true purpose and happiness. We place too much value on money and once we get more of it, we spend it endlessly because we do not know what else to do with it. We say that we value money, yet we we waste it once we have it. We have yet to recognize that money is endlessly and we already have an abundance of it all around us.
Money is just a currency system that was created to provide us with a satisfying life (the keyword being satisfying). The problem is that as human beings we are never satisfied. We constantly are yearning for more and more. The search for a satisfying life becomes an never-ending journey searching for something outside of ourselves to make us feel whole, peaceful, and happy. Research has shown that some of the richest people in the world are the most unhappiest. Happiness cannot be reached through external factors that have no real purpose.
We need to shift our perspective from valuing meaningless things like money, materialism, and consumerism and start to value priceless things like love, peace, and time. These are all things that are immeasurable and can create true healing from the suffering in our lives. You do not want to life your life constantly chasing after money. It is a never-ending race. Learn to be at peace with what you already have and the Universe will bless you exceedingly and abundantly with all of your heart’s desires without you even having to ask for it. Trust the process and appreciate what you have. More will be given to you.
