Wealth Is A Lie

BY – Kayode Ipadeola


Sometimes I wonder why some things are the way they are.. Why some must struggle while others live in greatness. Is this really fair? Its definitely not fair, just that people fail to know that;

The rich are no different from the poor and the haves are no different from the have-nots: all are bodies dressed in clothes paying for things with paper and stone. Who decrees that gold is of more value than sand? Who claims that paper with a number printed on it is more valuable than a fruit that grows on a tree?

When a person is hungry, can they eat paper or gold?

No one is free from their clutches. But find security in knowing that you are always safe in your own little space.This really resonates true meaning. Hardships create character, and a greater destiny. The journey is about overcoming the struggle, by climbing the mountain. We don’t always choose our destiny, the hardship actually births us into our destiny. Then we walk in it.

To me, “money” is merely words .

Words are the true power of the elite. Words say that printed paper and polished rocks can be traded for food and water and shelter. Words say that numbers on a banks computer screen determine one humans value to be higher than anothers.

Words are the wealth of the wealthy.

Knowledge is the power of the words.

If your life is faced with struggles, remember the power of the mind. Remember that your brain bears no physical difference from that of a millionaire, a billionaire, a queen or a president. Remember that those who attain greatness were born with minds as empty of knowledge as every other child their choices of what to fill their minds with led them to lives of Abundance.

Fear not for the struggles you face in this moment: be they money, relationships, loneliness, or hunger. These are impermanent and temporary concerns that plague every member of the human species regardless of wealth or power or prestige.

Empires will fall so greater empires can be made from its ashes; a life will crumble so a greater future can be built with its pieces.

There is no finality in life except death, and no hardship too crushing for you to overcome. There is security in knowing that your life has purpose and that every moment is by design and no moment is ever a mistake.

Find peace in the fact that the darkest moments in your life are merely required prerequisites for an illustrious future that approaches. Know that however dark your world may seem, the ever-present glow at the end of all tinnels will guide you to safety.

I say; the choices you make determine your lifes road. Fear not for where you are today. Fear nothing at all!!
