Neither Riches nor Gold nor Fame & Fortune hold a candle to the Wealth of Consciousness
- Sad world to live in when materialism controls a great portion of mankind's thinking and philosophy, and, as a consequence, their actions and society.
- Materialism is not limited only to lust for money and treasures, but the notion itself that reality is centered only around <what is seen>, <what is visible> and what is <readily tangible> (e.g., conscious-consciousness thinking only, typical 5 of the 7, lower senses like sight, taste, etc.)
- Riches, gold, money etc. means absolutely nothing compared to the precious gem of consciousness; What is consciousness and why you should care about your consciousness-based development above ALL other priorities and duties.
- Consciousness is the #1 priority; Everything else is 2nd, including escaping into one's <job> as an excuse to evade consciousness-based evolution; Humans first and foremost exist for consciousness evolution; Consciousness evolution IS the so-called MEANING OF LIFE.
- Consciousness evolution is not given to the lazy and weak-minded, rather, it requires effort and work, especially for those who are more developed/advanced; Consciousness is necessary for both immaterial (archaic: spiritual) and material evolution - thus a Oneness evolution or a "Creation"-evolution is only possible through the advancement of consciousness which leads to new ideas, insights, discoveries, higher ethics and moral principles, art and culture that is edifying and inspiring and so on and so forth.
- Riches and materialism from money to a "nice house" and a "sick car" means nothing compared to the values of CONSCIOUSNESS; When you die, your money, car, mansion, title, vanity, prestige etc., dies with you, but the gems of CONSCIOUSNESS lives on ETERNALLY through the Immaterial resp. Creation-energy (archaic: spirit).
