Humans are drawn to money because they instinctively feel that it represents all the possibilities life has to offer. Only, they mistakenly confuse money and life.
Just as life provides everything, they believe that money too will provide them with everything, and so they grant it an importance they are unable to give to life. They tremble at the thought their money might be stolen from them, and take extraordinary measures to protect it.
Look at banks – they have become veritable fortresses. Nothing is better guarded and protected than their safes.
But why don’t humans tremble as much at the thought of wasting their life, which is their most precious asset because it is the quintessence of God himself? This quintessence contains all the wealth of the universe, and yet they accept to lose this wealth in pursuit of a few trinkets.
Yes, money is the material expression of all the possibilities life gives us, but only the material expression.
We must learn to transpose it onto other planes: emotional, mental, and spiritual, in order to obtain the equivalent wealth on these planes.
