The Power of Money

It seems nowadays everyone is on a non-stop treadmill of work ,work,work. In Australia alone it has been surveyed that in the average family both parents work, 10-12 hours a day. Our whole lifestyle seems too be out of proportion and geared towards the need too earn lots of money too pay for the bills. Sure you need a roof over your head, food in the cupboard and transport too get places, and a little left over for entertainment, but realistically thats all.The rest is indulgence or materialism which has been compared too an addiction, the analyses say the main culprit is credit cards, some families have 15-20 credit cards. Buy now pay later, this tool defys our caution of debt, and we get snowed under but have lots of happy things at home too keep us under the illusion. Huge palace/houses, 2 cars, plasma tvs, xbox, nintendo, wall to wall computers, you get the picture:)The truth is knowledge is wealth, virtue is wealth, how you invest your time and assets is wealth,having lots of feathers in your nest isn't wealth, a huge income,stocks and bonds aren't wealth, theyr'e fleeting, look how everything crashed in the recession.
What you take with you when you go is your good karma, your good or bad actions so please start investing in that:)
