No Money

2 years, 11 months ago

So, just wanted to share this incase you can relate.
Got paid on Saturday, after all my ‘dues’ and bills were paid, had the equivalent of about $80..

Cash: $80
Bar, Drinks = $20
Late night tacos after heavy drinking: $5
Herbs & Spices = $10
Misc. cash misplaced (cash I have no idea where I spent it) = $10

This means I have $35 dollars in my pocket to get me through a WHOLE week. Damn… Having no money is NO joke.

@Alex and Eric

Money is ultra-awesome, you are objectively wrong because we have different opinions.
-Internet style- :D

You can have all the money you want once you transcend its limitation as a control mechanism. There’s a big difference in working a job you hate to pay for shit you don’t need, and doing what you love and actually helping others and generating financial abundance as a result. I’d like to think I’m on my way to the latter : )

The difference in the first is believing in the power of money (to the point where it literally controls your choices and actions), versus following your passion and letting money and material assistance manifest as a reflection of your acts of giving. I’ve had way too many improbable circumstances turn around last minute and work in my favor, despite the overwhelming odds.

The more skeptical you are of this, the less objective it will seem to you. I’ve seen friends literally turn down blatant synchronicity because they weren’t conscious enough to realize what was actually occurring. Life will always throw you a rope; the trick is to become aware enough to recognize it.

@Sheila
Wow, that’s a lot of entrepeneurship in your reply… But however I have a disadvantage… No biggie, really… IT’S JUST THAT I DONT HAVE A VAGINA!
So I’m gonna have a hard time going on a date every night. But thanks….
And since this topic went waaay of into the love of money.. I will share those 2 cents also.

Money = ”the root of all evil”… This is true.
Money = Do I need it? Yes.

Have you never gone out drinking with money on you before? A lot of the time you’ll spend a good portion of what you bring.
And you dont need to spent money on dates… not spending money usually makes a better date, at least for me.

@Tony Money is just a concept, an imaginary number and a bunch of paper notes and little pieces of metal. They are incapable of evil and nobody needs them.

The root of evil is ignorance, greed and laziness. Not money. The only thing you need to get is food and water. Not money.

Step out of that haze of illusions.

@Sheila “If you are really desperate you could always braid and sell hemp.”

How would I do this? What was that like for you?
