The money taboo and judgment

This morning I was reading a really interesting, long discussion on facebook, on very crucial subjects. For those of you who believe that facebook is a waste of time, I’d like to say that you have believed one more story, without thinking for yourselves beyond the obvious and the collectively accepted.

Nevertheless, I realized once more, that too much talking and endless analysis doesn’t help the mind to think freely but quite the contrary, prevents creative thought. This is another subject, which I’ll probably get back to at some point.

But the fact is that I prefer to present my readers with some thoughts, allowing your own mind to make sense of them, expand on them and come up with your own conclusions.

For today, the money taboo subject is on the table. Let us dare to see another side of the story…

Nobody makes money – lots of money - without deceit. But then, we all deceit ourselves, in one way or another. It’s all those “good intentions” that we all have, which give us our perfect absolution ticket, while at the same time we freely accuse others.

It is just extremely easy for the poor to accuse the rich, having adopted the role of victim from the churches. Many of the rich have adopted the same role, feeling guilty for their “good fortune” and so become philanthropists.

It is not what we do that matters but the intention by which we act on. So, ultimately, actions don’t matter independent of their intentions.

You can’t judge a person by his actions. You can’t judge a person at all, because you don’t know his intentions. If you did know his intentions, you would understand. Acceptance and respect would be the only option present.

Don’t judge what you don’t understand. Judgment is always a product of short-sighted vision. If you feel or "catch" yourself judging, which you undoubtedly will, if you're honest with yourself, know that you have been deceived by your own mind.

Working with people, both rich or poor, I know for a fact, that there is no substantial difference between rich and poor; in their essence, their way of thinking or their inner pain. We really need to stop this on-going aggression between Man and the only way to do it is to be in charge of our own thinking mind.
