The object that we all want more than anything, yet at the same time it causes the most
problems on our planet. Have you ever taken the time to really look at what money is, and the
relationship you have with it?

Many people put a huge value on money and they struggle with it a lot, but if you really look at
what it really is, you will see that it’s some paper and some metal. Money has no real value. So
if you’re struggling with it, try to realize that the value is in the service or item that you need, or
that you think you need. If you look at it this way, rather than worshiping it, you can start to be
more relaxed about it.

If you need or want more money, the same principles apply. If you can master a particular skill
that others can use, or you can create something that others will need, then there’s a good
chance that they will trade the paper and metal for your skill or item.
Every single person can offer something, and this is what you have to figure out for yourself:
what can you offer so that you can start contributing to the planet in your best and most
enjoyable manner?

Also, try to start observing what you are doing in your life, because most people work jobs that
they don’t really like, just to buy things that they don’t really need. Are you just going by what
society and your ego wants? Or are you actually taking the time to look inside yourself for what
you need and what will fulfill you?
