Caught Up in a Financial Whirlwind

If you have one quick glance at the cause of most of our stress, you will notice a lot of it stems from our financial system and ideology. In one way or another, we are all at the mercy of our finances in some way or another. There are many ways which money can affect our lives both positively and negatively. Regardless of the financial situation of most people, there always seem to be some problem associated to their financial world. The rich and the financially poor seem to want to get richer and in many cases, greed flourishes at the expense of others.

There are those that barely scrape by and then there are those that are rich beyond imagination. If we were to stop for a moment and truly consider our financial woes, we might want to remind ourselves of true poverty such as that which exists in the third world countries. There are sufficient resources that could provide the much needed assistance and agricultural help that would help to alleviate the hungry of this world.

Many couples and families squabbles over financial matters. Many families suffer irreversible breakdowns due to opinions on how money should be dealt with and the amount needed. The only master in these matters is money itself. Our financial world is plagued with avarice and the need to control. This need is disruptive, causes heartache, and more. It is definitely clear that our financial system does not work.

How will you allow finances to control you? How will you allow your financial state of affairs to affect you, your family and the world around you?

Perhaps it is time we put money in its proper place and stop assigning it the power to dictate our happiness and importance.

Yes, we do live in a material world; but unfortunately, many people believe that what we have and what we own establish our importance and status in life. For some reason the more we have, the more respect we get from our world at large.

If money is so significant why is it that when we die we leave it all behind? Perhaps it is time that society as a whole learned to share and spread the wealth. Start with those individuals close to your heart and make sure that they do not go without. Then, spread it out into the world as even small financial assistance can add up if we are all giving accordingly. Give a person a fish and they will eat today; teach a person to fish and they will eat for a lifetime.

We do need to look after ourselves and our families, but there is usually always a little left over. Why is it that the food banks are always short, and what can we do to change this?

Together we can make this world a better place for everyone and in our own small way we can start that ripple effect. We have to work together and think in terms of what we can do for others, and not what others can do for ourselves. We have to give to receive and what we do receive back in many ways is immeasurable.

Be thankful for your life and spread that thankfulness to those that share this life with you. Remember we all walk this road of life together and at some point in time we will realize our obligation to the fellow members of this world.
