Alas, in this world that we've built, life is quite inconvenient without money. Maybe we could build a world where a new kind of currency works for building community and exchange of materials without harming the envirnoment? Maybe that's too idealistic.
(These people: the Moken or sea gypsies don't have much use for money, and they look pretty happy to me. What is truly amazing is that as a people and a culture, they've been around longer than we have.)
I think money is like an energy. It is useful, it's purpose is to transform, it can be used for both good and bad. It's really up to us how we use it. Like any other energy it will always be around. I hope that one day the majority of humanity will learn how to use money and energy in ways that enrich ourselves and our environment. I wonder if we could set our minds to seeing how everyone of us is rich in different ways rather than focusing on if we were poor, the world may suddenly become all the more richer?
I'd be happy to be a millionaire because then I'd be able to use more money in innovative ways to help people. However, I think I'm quite happy the way I am. I don't have much but I have my comforts. I think I sometimes tend to worry unnecessarily about resources for the future so I try to think of ways to increase my income or assets. I'm only beginning to understand to forgive myself for that because that's the way I've been conditioned to think. I'm learning to appreciate other resources I have that have no measure in monetary terms that I know will always provide happiness for myself no matter what.
Anyway, we're all die one day, and however much money we've earned, we can't take it with us. What counts more is to die happily knowing I've fully lived my life the way that mattered to myself hoping that I haven't caused unnecessary harm to anyone I knew and to be forgiven for those that I did. Live happily, ye all!
