One person I know recently summarized his philosophy of financial freedom by saying, “I have more than enough money to buy all I need and want. That is due to not needing nor wanting much that I don’t already have. Consequently, more than just a very little is more than enough.”
It seems to me that this idea has a lot of merit since it points to financial freedom not being as related to money as much as it is related to a state of mind.
Most of us are familiar with the expression “the space-time continuum.” Few of us have reason to deny that this term has validity; we humans certainly do live in a reality that occupies space ( we have bodies, after all!!), and our activities succeed other activities (we use the calendar!!).
But, beyond the space – time reality, is there something more, another reality that is as relevant to human existence as are the time and space realities?
Allow me to flesh this out just a tad. Time is the reality that is required for answering the question When? Space is the reality that is required for answering the question Where? Is there another reality that is required for answering the question Why (What’s the purpose)? I am not sure what word we need for this reality that would work as well for it as the words time and space work for their realities. Maybe the word Mind would work as well as any, but that is just a guess at this point.
But, what do you think?
