Capitalism has forced us all to depend on the power of money. Our time well spent is measured in how much money we bring in. Yet, for most, no matter how much we have, we always want more.
I believe that anyone can find abundance in their situations. This piece, while intense in imagery, can show you how much we, as a society, can work together to fight against a system that prevents people from attaining wealth. We only need to learn how to find wealth in all that is around us and then share it to keep the wealth abundant.
I was taught to think about money as a scarcity from childhood. My parents each worked two jobs to simply put food on our table and a roof over our heads. Our house caught fire when I was a kid. The hard work and money that went into keeping that house a home was lost within mere hours. I learned then that money and the physical objects we hold dear are fragile items. These things that many view as being necessary are simply tools to experience the world. Yet, we are always searching for more of them.
