Money being the root of all evil stems from the fact that people will do anything for a quick buck. A social construct that isn’t meant to be valued over spirituality, or lives of beings. Money is dope, certainly no one wants to be broke, but it’s also one of the devil’s greatest tools. Materialism at the detriment and welfare of humanity aligns with dark energy. The fact that a dollar takes precedent over morals, the climate, human lives and connection to your soul is abhorrent, nor does it align with god. You can’t take it with you and it doesn’t equate to being remembered so what are you really doing? Check yourself before the source does.
Cute, affordable, dainty earrings from Singapore based brand Gabi Label. The collection is massive with chicer pieces, with an average price of $16. A great compromise for an inexpensive splurge. You should always treat yourself, at least once a week. Money is energy, when you hoard it, you send out a signal of scarcity to the universe, which you’ll continue to manifest. Even if it’s five dollars on a fancy coffee. When’s the last time you treated yourself?
“Which is more important, time or money?”
Stuffing our faces with a breakfast of fried chicken, eggs and some unidentifiable red gunk, Lee confided in me. Her new boo was co-owner of a sustainable cooperative farm, which she’d gained a newfound interest in. But being a Park Avenue bartender sponsored a very cushy lifestyle, coupled with a 401k, a seemingly unreal healthcare package and paid vacation (allotted time off increasing yearly). To leave would dent her finances significantly.
“Time,” I answer.
“You can always make money, but you can never get your time back.“
“Wow, that was deep. How is it that you say the wisest shit, but you’re so ratchet?” Now that, I didn’t have an answer for. Someone once told me I’d been here before. This wasn’t my first life. Agreed. Even in high school people were annoyed I could see past tomorrow; dismissing their current melodrama as infinitesimal. Ahead of the curve, the bigger picture was always in view.
Later that week she gave notice, absconing a seven year stint. When she came to visit happiness beamed from her, like rays of sunlight it was blinding. She found her purpose.
Now I am asking you where do you place the most value, time or money? How much merriment does it bring you?
Don’t let them fool you. Money comes and goes.
Time just goes.
How you utilize it is important. It correlates directly with your happiness, the only currencies that truly matter.
Start the week with ambition.
