the thing that I've found ironic & bothersome about 'money' is actually of how society are using it.
i agree, money by itself is just a tool.
it's just a mere paper with green-printed numbers on it. a formation of particles, molecules. nothing more.
but the problem is , as usual, the People, who've created the 'system' .
The sad truth that i've always found is how the 'system' only seems to allow certain type of people to get very rich & succesful.
For example, people who just love doing business, or people who just love the rat-race.
But for the vast majority of 'creative' people, or 'highly-sensitive' people, sometimes, or often, our minds and hearts are actually not in the money, but rather in somewhere else. For example: in creating arts, in helping people, consoling people, in sharing laughter,..basically all the 'abstract immeasurable' things.
And i've observed that, for these type of people, unfortunately, money doesn't come that easily.
For example, blatantly speaking, we all know that creating arts, helping & counseling people just doesn't create big money, as compared to working in stock market, or Finance institutions, or building a manufacture or factory, or working in oil company, stuff like that.
and that's where the 'problems' seem to come: people (or society, at large generally) start comparing. and seeing those who don't excel in money-making as "not succesful" enough, or "doesn't do any 'real' stuff", or "being spoiled" , etc etc.
And that's honestly what made me a bit hating the concept of 'money' , sometimes even to a point where i've just asked myself "does this world really need money so much, to continue living in day-to-day basis? will it ever comes the time where Money won't be the major-determinant in everything? and perhaps, people can share with each other? or invent other 'system' , by being high-aware & sensitive?"
or perhaps I'm just talking mumble-jumble & B.S ..
Or maybe I just hate how this world (& society) operates generally..
I don't know..
I've realized that I've might just rambling here..
and perhaps even I don't 'deserve' to talk like this, since I'm still living in a relatively 'safe & secure' environment.. which makes me like a damn 'spoiled brat' for talking like this (?)
but I can't help to feel like this sometimes, feeling how 'cruel' our society has become nowadays, all just for that small-little green thing called : Money.
what do u guys think on this topic?
let's share & discuss.
