How to view it

February 17th 2011
Money is undeniably one of the main preoccupations for human beings. From one point of view, it is only natural, since it affords them their survival, but the danger is that eventually they become obsessed with the idea of money: they no longer see other people’s good qualities, and they become demanding, hard and cruel. Making a profit is all that matters. But to be completely indifferent to money is not good either. All those who believe that in order to be spiritual they have to live with no material concerns actually become burdens on society, parasites. So long as we are on earth and things are organized the way they are, we need money. Perhaps in the future we will be able to do away with it and replace it with love; yes, for love is a currency that surpasses all others. But humanity has not yet reached the point of accepting such a currency, and since money will be current for a while yet, we must learn to think about it rightly so that we do not fall into any of its traps.
