I have always valued sanity above greed. As a child, I was unconsciously already laying down the foundations of a more spiritual life, but I didn’t consciously understand that’s what it was.
In the early years, our family are the most important until we begin to spread our wings. As children, the more our parents do for us and the more we’re given, the more we will want. Equally, the more contact we have and the more influences we have, the more our allegiance, thought processes and personalities will change.
But as we go through the process, it’s important that through our allegiance to people and things, we stick to our moral standing and values, because it’s easy for our lifestyles to replace those. Instead of our need to want more things, remember to think about and work on your sanity.
As we unconsciously begin to acquire more things, we will continue to ignore our emotions and our sanity. As we go through life we will draw more importance to things than we will people, or even ourselves, although there are exceptions.
When it comes to stress, the more we’re stressed, the more we will want to buy things, the less we will think about the importance of value, and the greedier we will become. Sadly, when we put greed above sanity, we’re not happy to live the basic simple life, we want more.
