I’ve been spending a lot of time lately just simply listening to the world around me. Everything in my environment and all of creation as a whole. It’s simply beautiful when you think of it down from either a biological/molecular level and the great orchestra that every aspect of life around us plays together in beautiful harmony. How the cells in the leafs, the air around them, the rain the falls from the clouds, it’s impact when it hits the ground, how it’s absorbed by the soil. It shows how everything in life is influence cohesively and not within singularity. It reminds of of the beauty within chaos and the balance of the natural order in the world around us. And that chaos theory defines chaos in its wholesome as “within the apparent randomness of chaotic complex systems, there are underlying patterns, constant feedback loops, repetition, self-similarity, fractals, self-organization, and reliance on programming at the initial point known as sensitive dependence on initial conditions.” Which has been expanded through the butterfly effect and that describes the change in one state of a deterministic nonlinear system can build up to such larger changes as well. That everything is interconnected, a butterfly flapping its wings in China becoming the initial cause that through time creates a hurricane in Texas as its reaction of that butterfly. It reminds us of how beautiful the world is, that all of our actions are interconnected and that nature around us nurtures what must be. It’s helped me expand my view on life, the beauty within simplicity but the awe within the grand picture. We have so much genuine power within us that we ourselves do not recognize the potential we have. The power to shape our realm of influence. The power to become kinder and much more loving human beings. The power to author our narratives. The power to become as great as we will ourselves to be, that even in the vast greatness and the ever so continuation of time we too can be great amongst man and woman. Human beings have hindered their capacity to recognize their greatness because they themselves do not seek to understand the natural world around us. They do not seek to understand.
Let's face it, right or wrong, money buys freedom. The less money you have, the fewer options you have. The more money, the more options you have as far as how you can spend your time, where to travel, where to stay, and what to do on a daily basis 💯
Without money, you are unable to buy other people's time, so you sell your time to others. You're unable to buy the things you want, so you settle for the things that are just enough.
Although money may not be able to buy happiness directly, it really is true that money can contribute massively to our happiness is spent correctly ✔️
