I think I finally understand why I hate money. People that focus on money are idolizing the wrong thing, and so are distracted from the path of enlightenment progression.
And if the Egg theory from yesterday is accurate (hypothetically speaking), then those that are after only money are the spiritual slackers. They’re keeping us in human classroom LONGER b/c they got their focus in the wrong direction.
So even if they’re not meaning to be greedy, they’re still not doing their homework, and therefore keeping the whole class after school.
And obviously, as a brown-nose student, that pisses me off! Ah HA!
So if I can forgive them for being on a distracted path, then maybe I won’t hate money so much?? 😀
Interesting Quote from Wikipedia article on Hermeticism:
A focus upon the material life is said to be the only thing that offends God:
As processions passing in the road cannot achieve anything themselves yet still obstruct others, so these men merely process through the universe, led by the pleasures of the body. The Way of Hermes pp. 32–3
One must create, one must do something positive in one’s life because God is a generative power. Not creating anything leaves a person “sterile” (i.e., unable to accomplish anything).
