When the question echoed back in conversation later it seemed that the energy connecting money and people could be an energy that drives the ego further and further away from core self ; the more money we acquire, the more possessions we can attain, and instead of the cup overflowing and sustaining us all with what we need, the cup just keeps getting bigger and bigger, stretching to accommodate the wantonness that drives the potters wheel, like clay in the continuous process of being fashioned. The bigger the cup gets, the less time there is to focus on anything else. Thanx to MaryAnne for that analogy. So more money can never satisfy this drive for money, because the more money there is in your kitty the bigger the figure and the more exciting it gets, and the more entertainment to perpetuate the excitement you can afford to purchase.
Does money have a connection with an energy outside ourselves, or does it change us somehow at an atomic level? Maybe this is crazy, but could we be face to face with a real false god, that we created because we could, and now it's getting the better of us because we don't even know that it lives with us - physically and chemically and biologically?
I knew that if I didn't write this post now it wouldn't get written. I may have some very wealthy followers. I don't want to upset anybody. I just would like to ask the question of whether the question is worth asking, and the question is ; what's driving us, and is it sane, and if it doesn't seem to make much sense to us, why do we keep on doing it? If we don't really like what we are, as a species, why don't we just change what we want to... be ?
Time is money, they say. Time is time, and money is money, and maybe we confuse the two for a very good reason.
