I’m not against materialism
because what I own
brings me joy
and if I had the money
I would choose to own a small airplane
I would fly it everyday
not to a destination—just to feel above it all.
Investing, to beat the system, can cause constant worry
or having faith in the dollar.
I’ve always wanted to put faith in myself—
so that the material world, would fall away.
I admire the man who lives beyond money—
Only, I haven’t met him
Those who say they don’t care about it, have enough
and if they think of themselves as spiritual—it’s usually because they want experiences
Life without money is painful
I’m interested in the man who deliberately chooses pain
so he can walk in the faith of himself
this probably doesn’t exist
so I am also interested in the man who walks in the faith of God
and what is the difference?
If they don’t lay claim to their lives on the street corners
or ask for money
or seek fame
they simply exist
in their own fullness
whatever that might be.
