Both are equally needed. Meaning brings fulfillment in our lives while money addresses our basic needs for food, house and clothing.
We need money for providing a comfortable life to our loved ones. Giving up everything to chase life's purpose is not really an option. Poverty can create enough hindrance to us chasing our dreams.
At the same time, chasing money should not become our life's purpose. We need to balance both. So, earn enough money to fulfill the basic necessities and then spend the remaining time to pursue your dreams.
