Ladies and gentlemen we now live in a world so advanced that anything you can imagine rests at your fingertips. We have technology beyond your wildest dreams. So how is it in a world so advanced that people have become such fools. Yes I know this is not the 1950's and times have changed but being an educated individual should always be non-negotiable.
Morals and a code of ethics should be essential in every walk of life from beginning until the end.
See where the problem lies is when you idolize a thing that has no value you yourself become less valuable. Money was never intended to help people; it was made with the sole intention of power, greed and division.
Those who have or can acquire it would control the land and all who are in it.
In today's society people have become violent, materialistic, and everything is overly sexualized because to most people money has become God. We have become so comfortable with looking cool that we fail to see how dumb we really are. People once cared about being dignified and intelligent. Yes it's cool to have a good time. But until we get back to the basics of self knowledge and self awareness, we will continue to push ourselves towards extinction.
The great Bob Marley once said
“Don’t gain the world and lose your soul, wisdom is better than silver or gold.
The greatness of a man is not in how much wealth he acquires, but in his integrity and his ability to affect those around him positively."
Being knowledgeable is more than being book smart or computer savvy. See there was a time when knowledge was money and it was the most valuable currency on the planet. People were able to feed, educate, and motivate themselves because they had a keen awareness of the world around them.
If there was a famine right now how many people are able to raise livestock or grow their own food. If Walgreens closed today, who has the ability to know what plants in nature have healing properties?
Do you remember the book Fahrenheit 451?
Well that time is slowly creeping upon us. What will you do when books are banished? Money and food will be rationed out. How will you survive if you're not knowledgeable about the world around you? Don't just be a dumb person with a smart phone. Educate yourself and ground yourself spiritually!
See If we continue to discount the happenings of the past we will no longer be able to map out the future.
Meaning we will be doomed to repeat the same mistakes. There's a reason wisdom is consistently mentioned throughout the Bible. Wisemen will always prosper because they understand wisdom can take you places money could only fathom.
See the love of money is the root of all evil.
My grandmother says "a fool and his money will soon part". And she has never told me anything wrong in my life. So now is the time to self educate, teach and value your state of mind over a green piece of paper. When you have knowledge you gain discipline and with discipline you can change the world.
Always remember mind over matter because a piece of mind is all that matters!
