to acknowledge it. Money is indeed power and affords the access to do many things. When one has money, he/she has MAJOR OWNERSHIP over many things in life. Those with money have the power to create their own lives and that of others. Whereas when one has little or no money, he/she is practically OWNED and is at the mercy of those who are more powerful. He/she is a puppet whether he/she knows it or not.
We are all slaves of the system. However, not keeping the value of money in perspective causes those with too much of it to be more greatly enslaved. I would hope, if I every rise above my current financial slump, I will remember this tidbit of information and put whatever extra I have to good use, in the service of others. A difficult prospect, since there are two of us who ponder the state of our finances.
