    Secondary to what?
    There is no such thing as separation from God.

    It's not the most important thing to me, but I wouldn't say I'm indifferent to it.

    I don't care about money as long as I can live my life.

    It's almost as if, with money, comes "happiness > survival" whereas with less money "survival > happiness".
    I can relate to that.

    I am somewhere in the middle between well not really and yes. I'm driven to succeed in what I set out to do and money is a "mile marker". I like the sense of accomplishment I get from raises/promotions more than the actual money. I thrive more on that internal reinforcement. The feeling of self-sufficiency is also very satisfying. In real life I am very thrifty and love living life as cheaply as possible. I don't spend time wishing I had more "stuff". I spend lots of time looking for ways to figure out and measure if I am going the right direction in life. I wish money wasn't such a common theme to measure ones self but it is for most people I know.

    Answering the OP question: NFs: is 'money' really secondary to you?

    I say than these days it's the most important thing if you want to have a home to live in, if you want to eat and drink in order to live and if you want to have some clothes on.

    Another question is if the money is the most important thing in my value system?

    To that question I would say no. My family is the most important thing in my life. I will be ok with so much money that we can live in a proper house, with enough food and clothing and so on. But if somebody would just donate me with 1 000 000 I wouldn't mind because it would probably make my life a bit easier because I wouldn't have to go to work anymore.

    I come from one of the ten poorest countries in the world and live in the richest one(hm that was a change these past few years).
    So I've seen both extremes and that's changed my idea on money. I've also paid a visit to wall street and seen for myself the brokers living like dogs. I also remember the children with their stomachs out, covered in dust and flies being mindlessly blown off by strangers when they begged for money. I also remember playing checkers with soda caps (yes, they still use glass bottles there!) while sitting on the dirty cement with my cousins and their neighbors. Ketchup is not even available in that country...
    In any case, the extremes don't bring much happiness. I think it's just a means to obtain material security period. I decided that I'd work to get what I call "comfort zone".
    Honestly money is not secondary to me.
    Sometimes I feel like I'm "on Mercury"-

    Money is just a vessel; in and of itself it's nothing. So, I assume this thread is about materialism vs. spirituality?
