Money Is Meant To Be Lost-The Soul Is Not by Lyon Amor Brave
When we are having bad days, bad months, bad years, it's because we are missing out on a key ingredient in our lives.
That key ingredient is love.
The truth is no matter how much adversity we are facing, unemployed, lacking essential elements like food and shelter, what has our hearts feeling gloom and doom is that nobody cares enough to provide us food and shelter.
When we hit rock bottom, it is because our life is essentially lacking external love.
External love is love from other people and how much they care about us. It's how the world responds to us, how the world treats us and the world and the people do not always treat us with the love, respect and compassion we are worthy of.
Internal love is how much we care about ourselves and how we treat ourselves.
Sometimes, we care very little about ourselves and other people care a whole lot about our well being.
Then there our times, we care a lot about ourselves, but it seems we are utterly helpless without the support of other people.
Sometimes the soul suffers in a material world because people forget their humanity alone is valuable.
When someone won’t give us the time of day because we don’t have the right car, clothes, suit or house, it can really take a toll on one’s self-esteem.
When we start associating who we are, with what we own, we are getting very close to losing ourselves and becoming someone else.
We have all heard stories of billionaires who lost their fortune and jumped out a window. These people didn’t value themselves. They valued money more, and that’s a sad mentality to hold because we only get one life.
Many of us are subconsciously unaware or our biggest motivations in life. We even declare money and corporate success as our biggest motivations, but universally no matter what culture, gender or skin color we are, love is what we are seeking, and anything else we say we desire with our whole hearts is a lie.
Our hearts cannot be filled up with money, or fame, or employee of the month certificates. If our hearts could feel whole with these things, then billionaires and rock stars would not meet such tragic fates like suicides and drug overdoses, which are basically suicides.
We all crave love, even those of us who want to pretend to be bitter and void of emotion because we have been deeply hurt in the past.
We can't help, but to desire love. It is innate. Love makes life worth living and with its absence many of us fall into a deep despair.
Love is a word used to typically describe an emotion. However love is much bigger than our emotions. It's more than a feeling. Love is an essence, a calling, a purpose and overwhelming power that inspires us to better ourselves, to protect others. Love is a muse. It is why we are here.
