“You can buy fancy cars and spend loads of your hard-earned loot sustaining a theater. That gets you the odd ego-boost, but it doesn’t get you permanent happiness, serenity, and harmony. And it doesn’t take you to the Oneness in all things. In effect, it carries you away from your spirituality and from God toward the illusion. If things go wrong, your ego will take it all personally, and you’ll become sad and morose.
That’s why people take money so seriously – not because it keeps them housed, fed, and comfortable, but because of their need for attention and specialness. Once you detach yourself from the ego’s need for attention – once you’ve worked on yourself, and granted yourself worth regardless of how imperfect you think you are – then you don’t need admirers and observers. You become a self-observing individual, a free individual, out from under the manipulation of the ego and the world of glamor-addiction that dominates so many these days.”
Stuart Wilde, in “The Little Money Bible”
