Economic Envy – 211 DSR

March 19, 2016

Jones'

We discuss the dangers of keeping up with the elusive Jones’.

We ask the following:

– Since the word Greed is more commonly used when referring to money, is there a difference between envy & greed?

– TV was first demonstrated a mere 90 yrs. ago. Thoughts on it’s influence on Americas “Can’t Get Enough” attitude.

– Is TV’s influence intentional or accidental?

– TV’s appeal to emotion vs rational mind.

– TV, are we better off without it?

In the 2005 book – American Mania: When More is Not Enough we are reminded:

“Despite an astonishing appetite for life, more and more Americans are feeling overworked and dissatisfied. In the world’s most affluent nation, epidemic rates of stress, anxiety, depression, obesity, and time urgency are now grudgingly accepted as part of everyday existence. They signal the American Dream gone awry.”

What is money?
Your Energy. Blood, sweat, tears.

Don’t have enough energy?
If you didn’t you’d be dead.

Always Wanting More Energy?
You always have exactly the right amount.

Wondering why some people have more energy than you?
It’s not about them having more. It’s about how they spend/conserve what they have.

Action Tips:
Ask yourself, “If I want more money, why?”
Define “More.” Write it down.

Figure out how to:
Increase your dollar per hour earnings.
Increase your hours.
Increase your value in the market place.

The Church of Yahweh

We talk about The Love of Money. Our guest is Ahyh, founder of The Church of Yahweh. It is dedicated to presenting the clearest explanations it can about the mysteries and essence of the universe, God, and ourselves.

We explore:
1) How do we separate the the love of money from money?

2) If the love of money is the root of all evil. Could we translate that to “The love of material things (matter) is the root of all evil?

3) Is how I handle money a reflection of my self image?

4) Ahyh’s thoughts on “Money can’t buy happiness but it can sure make misery more enjoyable.”

You can find Ahyh at:

What the hell

What if everything you’ve ever believed is less than what’s real? Less than what’s possible?

What if everything you’ve ever been taught is less than actuality?

When do you stop asking deeper questions of why you’re here?

Where did you come from? Where are you going? What if Jesus, Buddha, Mohammed, The Pope, and Anton LaVey don’t get to come along for your ride?

What if true happiness is smack dab in the middle of bliss and depression? Do you have the balls to stay in balance between the two?

Closing thoughts:
Subtraction is far more powerful than addition.

Why do you use sex and money as tools to get what you want?

No matter how bad it gets, I’ll always have money.
Always be able to attract a mate.
Always be able to make up for mistakes.

No matter how bad it gets, I’ll always have sex.
If it gets bad, you can always have sex and forget about your problems.

Challenge:
Next time you’re tempted to use money or sex to get what you want, try to think of another way.
It’ll make you far more resourceful in the long run.
