why you shouldn't stress about money
    #2969341 - 08/05/04 08:25 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

this is a post that I made in PAL, but to those of you who stress over money a lot, this will help you realize how what you work for is basically, nothing, and that we are all slaves. 

click if you dare to know truth

btw all I used were facts  :laugh:

i know this isn't totally S&P, but...so many of our "problems" are tied with the money game that is disturbs our peace of mind.  my hope is that you'll see how much of a waste working for a federal reserve note is.

Annnnnnd I had a light saber and my friend was there and I said "you look like an indian" and he said "you look like satan" and he found a stick and a rock and he named the rock ooga booga and he named the stick Stick and we both thought that was pretty funny. We got eaten alive by mosquitos but didn't notice til the next day. I stepped on some glass while wading in the swamp and cut my foot open, didn't bother me til the next day either....yeah it was a good time, ended the night by buying some liquor for minors and drinking nips and going to he diner and eating chicken fingers, and then I went home and went to bed.---senior doobie

yeah, but like, this will show you how we are slaves in every sense of the word. using facts to allieviate stress is a good thing

not to mention people screw each other over everyday for a dollar, a dollar, this is literally in every sense of the word, worthless.

Yes, money is essentially degrading in value.. it is for this amongst many other reasons, it is wise to invest the money into assets that actually increase in value, which generate more money to allow you to create a healthy cycle of wealth building.

If one were well educated financially and possessed self control and discipline, he or she wouldn't stress so much over money, because they have the leverage of knowledge to create smart decisions with money, which in time will gain them independence and freedom, unlike those who live in different subjective realities that limit themselves to slavery-like jobs as employees, working harder and harder for less and less money.

Money is not the number one important thing in life, but money supports life, and especially freedom. [Common sense required to comprehend the previous statement as appropriately intended.] If anybody wants to achieve financial freedom and independence, then they must have an attitude that embraces and values money, financial education and so forth.

And that, in my humble opinion, is the true way to be stress-free about money.. Not, by simply ignoring all the potentials and capabilities within yourself to be able to create abundance and happiness with money, limiting yourself and living below your means to the point of a 'Poverty-pride' mindset.

Skorpivo's 2 cents. Tax free.. :wink:

Even though our currency is literally worthless, people (like myself) still have to worry about debt. If you don't pay off a debt that you owe to an institution, bad things happen to you.

Heheh. Very bad things.

Morever, to further my point dictated in my previous post; If you put your time and energy into building your financial intelligence and sophistication, and excercised that strength to create or invest in assets, you would be become aware of not just bad debt -- like most financially illiterate people -- but good debt as well.

The kind of debt that puts money into your pocket.

Well, well, well, the material that degrades spirituality in people is now surfacing. Of course you could look at currency objectively and see its worth but here today we are looking at it subjectively, in a sense that you look at money as if the subject (humans) do not exist and therefore this piece of paper, metal, or plastic has absolutely no worth because there is no one to exchange it with. In my reality (that has little spirit, still to young = | )I am looking at this material and I see great inspirations of using it for the betterment of mankind one day. Now may I say, mushrooms can equal a lot of money but unlike money, magic mushrooms have superior values subjectively. Don't worry my people I will one day abolish the root of all evil or come damn well near to it and we can stress about new things like cutting our toe nails.

money is little pieces of green paper that makes people unhappy.

A fallacious misdirection.
That argument is akin to stating that rocks are just peices of atoms and minerals combined together that makes people unhappy, because there are folks who lack emotional intelligence and self-control that would otherwise prevent them from launching rocks via slingshots at people's craniums, a la` Dennis the Menace.

Money is neutral. Money does not make people unhappy. Ignorance, and lack of financial sophistication is what truly causes unhappiness, not some green pieces of paper with dead presidents.

maybe its not actually money that is the problem...
maybe its that we are forced to use it for everything..

OK give me all of your money if you don't need it anymore.

Thank you - I can go get stuff from people with this money now that they probably wouldn't let me take without money.... food.. new shoes... I can't make shoes but I can give somebody money and they will give me shoes.


I understand what you mean but its like somebody said in the other thread if enough people are already integrated into the system, then everybody else had better plug in too or they're going to get their asses kicked; not that that's a bad thing, but it can rarely be comfortable

Water is really valuable.
