Be careful how far you tip your bucket to scoop up the things around you. You might find that you’re loosing more than you’re gaining. Take what’s owed to you and no more. The net of greed can easily pull you down and drown you in its depths.
There’s nothing wrong with wanting a good life. The Divine force you have in your life doesn’t want you to struggle and face hardship every moment of your existence. But there’s a difference between living well and constantly taking more than you’re due.
Even if you have not attained that materialistic life you dream of, be careful about what you’re willing to do in order to get it. Don’t compromise your principles. Don’t ignore your inner voice or focus on getting what you want at all costs. Forsaking your values, your family or your reputation will not gain you what you really seek to have.
Greed is an ugly trait to possess. It can cloud your judgement and lead you down a path of darkness and no return. Be careful who you align your mission with to obtain the material things you desire. You might find the price they require you to pay is more than you’re willing to give. And you might find out when it’s too late to say “no”.
Don’t think you can balance out the greed of the material things with giving donations of compassion. Anyone can write a check when they have the extra finances. It takes little effort and it’s an impersonal gesture that really has little value in the cosmic scheme of things.
Take some time today to remember what’s really important in your life. The love of family, the companionship of friends and the joy of simple pleasures have more value than all the material things in the world. Be thankful for those things you do have and remember to share them with those around you with compassion and gratitude. You may discover you’re much richer than the person you see in the 1% of our society.
