Money used to help us enjoy experiences enriches our soul and brings newness to our journey. Adventure brings joy and new paths.
Money used to attach ourselves to possessions, which are all temporary, to bolster our ego and feeling of being better than others brings suffering to us and others. Possessions deaden.
Experiences grow us and possessions restrict us.
When we see others and accept them as they are, we then step away from the lens of judgement that is our mind and its ego. Drama keeps the mind fed and that leads us to judge and gossip with others, it feeds our mind but creates fear, division, hate, anger and is toxic to us all.
If we want to see a different world and enjoy peace within and outside, then we can only achieve that by recognising we are all the one life and we are all beautiful loving souls beyond our minds and our egos.
If we are compassionate, we realise that like ourselves, everyone suffers from their mind to one extent or another. We do not know how much a person is suffering within, we can feel it sometimes and when we are away from our mind, we can feel it completely as we are conscious.
All that we could choose to extend to others is love, instead of our mind and its judgement.
It takes a simple step from our own mind and thoughts, and being conscious, now in this moment and choosing not to fight another’s mind, choosing to see their soul, not their ego. Acceptance will always bring peace and resistance always suffering.
