DO NOT HATE...
Unless U want too...
Demitrius Barbito - Here is my answer.Most of us are comparatively wealthy considering world average. Own a car? Have a house that has a concrete foundation and made of cut wood? Able to type words on a forum? Most are in the top 20% worldwide here I would guess. Even if only in the top 60% we still have more than many.
When you have no concern about the purchases you make or how you spend your money BECAUSE you will suffer no negative financial ramifications - YOU ARE WEALTHY.
I was there once. I could buy anything, even houses, without giving it a thought.
I'm not talking about MONEY. Jesus wasn't talking about MONEY. I'm speaking directly to HOARDED WEALTH.
I don't mean comparitive or subjective wealth. I mean:
I have so much money I can order lobster every night, with champage at $250 a bottle, and tip twice the cost of the meal AND NEVER FEEL IT FINANCIALLY.
I mean buying new clothes every week. I mean buying a new car (cash) every year. I mean buying $300 sunglasses. I mean buying a 1K watch every couple of months.
This type of WEALTH literally REMOVES you from the rest of the human race.
When my new wife and I rejoined everyone it was awesome. She called it "Leaving the Matrix".
Demitrius Barbito - Do the same for me.Will do
zealot66 - I saw your post on Rush Limbaugh. Now, I am a listener but not a huge fan. You cited no specific point or thing he said. I don't know why you even included him in your post other than to appear 'rational'.
