“If you want to feel rich, just count the things you have, that money can not buy” Unknown

“We in the richest societies have too many calories even as we starve for beautiful, fresh food;

we have overly large houses but lack spaces that truly embody our individuality and connectedness;

Media surrounds us everywhere while we starve for authentic communication.

We are offered entertainment every second of the day but lack the chance to play.

In the ubiquitous realm of money, we hunger for all that is intimate, personal, and unique.”

Charles Eisenstein

Where things going wrong?

“When women suffer, marriages suffer.
When marriages suffer, children suffer.
When children suffer, families suffer.
When families suffer, communities suffer.
When communities suffer, societies suffer.
When societies suffer, nations suffer.
When nations suffer, the world suffers.
When the world suffers, God suffers.”
Matshona Dhliwayo

Regarding the last sentence in Matshona Dhliwayo quote- he talks of God suffering, I am not sure what he wishes to convey.Probably he means that people lose faith in God.

Please share your thoughts.

Thank you.

    Yes..our world is circling with this disaster and our brains.
    Money, money, money
    Must be funny
    In the rich man’s world
    Money, money, money
    Always sunny
    In the rich man’s world
    Aha aha
    All the things I could do
    If I had a little money
    It’s a rich man’s world
    It’s a rich man’s world

    Adequate should be enough for our needs, more than that is greed!

    I also immediately thought of the song. Beautiful quotes, dear friend, but I disagree with the way you have interpreted that last line. We believe that G-d is our Father and we are His children. A Father will always suffer when His children are suffering. By the same token, as we should aim to please our parents, we should strive to please our Heavenly Father.

    I think what they mean is that God doesn’t want his children to suffer. He wants his children to be happy and thrive. When they suffer it makes him sad. Because it all comes down to individual choice and accountability. The individual choices are what allow us to choose God or to choose the things that make the world suffer. Too few people choose God anymore.
