Money Talks Quotes

“Money does not represent such a value as men have placed upon it. All my money has been invested into experiments with which I have made new discoveries enabling mankind to have a little easier life.”

-Nikola Tesla

Money was invented by Life to improve our efficiency towards achieving our goals, not to make more money.

We are living in a society that seems to have forgotten this. We seem to be spinning our wheels. If you focus only on money, you will miss the point.

“If you say that getting the money is the most important thing, you’ll spend your life completely wasting your time. You’ll be doing things you don’t like doing in order to go on living, that is to go on doing thing you don’t like doing, which is stupid.”

– Alan Watts

Collectively, if we would come to this realization, we could completely revolutionize the way we operate. We have enough money to end all poverty and cure all sicknesses. We are a collective unit bursting with potential energy. We need only to unlock and unleash ourselves into a new freedom.

“Perfection of means and confusion of goals seem—in my opinion—to characterize our age.”

-Albert Einstein

Unfortunately, wishing things were different does not immediately make them so.

But just because we haven’t collectively Woken Up to the realization that we could all be living our dreams, that doesn’t mean you have to wait to start living yours.

If you focus on what you truly desire, and  you orient yourself to contribute to the Greater Good, then somehow, the money will end up coming to you.

All you need is the time to figure yourself out.

Either save some money or rack up some debt, but do what you need to get away and discover.

If you trust yourself enough, you can start living your dreams whenever you are ready.

What are your opinions on Money and how it shapes our society today? Do you think we’re headed for a Worldwide Crash? Do you think greed and power maybe dooming us all? Do you think we need to completely upgrade to a new system?

We’ve had fundamental problems with Money for a while, and we seem to be in denial about the system being broken.

I’d love to hear your opinions on this 🙂

  1. Thank you so much for posting this. I really needed to hear all these words. It’s been rough for me as I really want to be a musician and artist for a living. Nobody ever takes me seriously and all they say is you’ll never be able to pay the rent. I believe that life already has a lot of sadness in order to not follow dreams. Also, I’ve been really sad about the so-called government shutting down national parks. Why does the government say they don’t have any money for others to enjoy nature?!

  2. Good post. You can’t go wrong with an Alan Watts quote(says the monkey with one on his blog too!)…

  3. Great post. I just wish that we can all hang on and start believing that it is not money that is the problem. It is rather how we use it and how we think about it. Focusing on those who misuse this powerful energy only enhances their power. The financial bubbles and the shiny new things that eventually tarnish may need to happen. It is not bad. it is an evolutionary process. The impact is what we all need. Yet it is no the world ending. It is that old assumptions need to be transformed. Those who understand need to start or continue using our money precisely by orienting ourselves to what is best for the greater good.

    1. I whole heartedly agree with everything you say 🙂

  4. I’ve always thought money is one of the worst things in our society.

    Also look at the criminal organisations- some like El Chapo earning more than government on the black economy alone.

    Gangs and criminals commit horrific crimes in the chase for paper. People die everyday in the chase for paper!

    All just to have new shiny things.

    1. Hopefully we’re going to make some changes soon 🙂

  5. Great Einstein quote – thanks for the post!

  6. Money is not inherently the problem,
    our attachment to it, and the value we have put on it is.
    Money was meant to represent man-hours, the time and effort we put into something.
    It was really just a place-marker. The way it would work was if you did something for me, I would give you something in return. But if you didn’t need what I had, then I would give you a token (money) which could be exchanged for what you did need. That’s how it’s supposed to work.
    Somewhere along the line things got all mixed up, and people started to actually value money. Which is inherently valueless, it’s just a piece of paper after all (now it’s less than that).
    We don’t necessarily need to abolish the monetary system, but we do need to change our attitudes and beliefs about what money really is.

    The biggest problem comes down to this idea that it’s me vs. you. I need to accumulate more wealth so I can be at a higher standing than you. These ideas of competition are outdated. They may have served a purpose in the past, but now it’s time to move on from them.
    It’s time for a new paradigm.
    A new realization about the world, that we are collectively creating this existence, we are all contributing to the endeavour, in our own unique ways. How can we put a $ value on each unique perspective and contribution to existence?
    The company needs the CEO and the factory worker. The country needs the president and the bureaucrat. The hospital needs the doctor and the nurse. The school needs the teacher and the custodian.
    Who’s contribution is greater, when one cannot exist without the other?

  7. We live in a money culture, it is unsustainable and only those who produce truly needed products and services have the power to change it – – if enough people understand this, it will change.
    I found Thomas H. Grecco Jr.’s book, New Money for Healthy Communities, to be informative and inspirational, as well as providing excellent ‘how-to’ examples.

  8. Thank you for this great post!

    What you state about “living your dreams” turns out more and more to be true for me while I am walking on that path – one step and one breath at a time.

    As for your question at the end of the post:
    I personally don’t believe in an ultimate doomsday. I do believe, though, that it is a matter of choice for each individual of how we experience life. Also, it seems to me that a completely new system is needed for the new time we are stepping into, currently. And I have a feeling that this system is already there to reveal itself as soon as we are ready to notice it. There are many competent people out there and I don’t think that we see most of them in the media (like TV and newspapers), yet. 😉

    Much love!

  9. Thanks for this post – indeed we seem to be on the cusp of yet another bursting bubble created by the worlds central banks. This is possibly the last a greatest financial bubble – from here we are truly in uncharted territory. This is likely to impact the lives of every citizen of the world. I will be posting tonight to my blog and will touch briefly on this subject in a different way. Cheers to you!
