The idea that money matters that much in life is just an illusion. Clearly it matters up to a certain point of getting your basic needs met. But above that point it really does make no difference. But people chase money in a wild way their whole life which makes money run away from them. They are not taking advantage of universal truths.
You can’t escape nature that’s the main reason why money doesn’t matter that much. We are still an animal with primal needs walking on earth but we are not that much different compared to other animals. Main thing that makes us different is we can be more conscious and self aware that we are doing things.
Our intellect can give us the illusion that we are moving forward more than what we actually are. Intellect is very good at slicing up things into smaller pieces. Let’s say you have a flower can you know the flower by slicing it up into smaller pieces? No but by observing it and not using your mind then you can know the flower. But the intellect slice up the flower in smaller pieces and you get this divide effect going on.
This makes life miserable for many people because they keep dividing life into smaller pieces instead of just living and Being. Being is something your mind wants to understand but it can’t. This is why many also chase Money and only think about the future instead of Focusing on the now that will actually solve all their problems! Also about Being it will ruin the Beauty of Being by trying to understand it. You can’t understand it! There is a higher body intelligence in you that can flow out when you quiet the mind and just observe life around you.
There is No Future and there is No Past. You always live in The Now, the present moment so to speak. No need to stress about anything or try to escape it. You don’t need more time to know yourself. You have already arrived, relax.
Truly enjoy everything you are doing in The Moment and you don’t need anything else and it also don’t matter what you do. You can get great pleasure out of everything in the current moment. And it’s very freeing to not have your mind going in loops because you now live more by using a smart awareness.
Doesn’t get any better than this it’s the highlight of your life. I was opening up a toothbrush package the other day it was really exciting. Because I was fully living in The Now. Especially the satisfying feel of the box and ripping it into pieces gave a satisfying sound. Then I burned it watching the fire in all cool colours.
Then I cleaned out a glass Nutella bottle and so satisfying to rip off the sticker sliding off so smooth when using hot water. The chocolate is a bit resistant to hot water but give it time and it will get loose, the glass look so pure when it’s empty of chocolate
