    If you are independently wealthy there really is no need.

    I have no qualms with that. If you are independently wealthy it means you worked hard to get said weath, unless you inherited it which means your relatives/family worked hard, unless you won it on the lottery, in which case you still worked hard to get the money to play the lottery, unless you got lucky and found a dollar in the street and played and won the lottery off that dollar, in which case you are still a bum, but a wealthy bum who still needs to get a job. 😉

    No, I am wealthy just not with money. I have what I need, I want no more. Money does not drive me, love, respect, home ownership, successful children, a husband who loves me, many friends, stability, and free thinking is my riches. I have what I need and all I could ever want. There are people who strive to be wealthy and in striving to be wealthy they miss the most important of things family, health, and love. I have all of those and more.
    We don't get stuck in the grind, we have fun, just not on a yacht.
    Yeah I said Independently wealthy to draw you in. I still work hard, I inherited truth, love, and a wonderful loving family, so I did win the lottery.

    The world is of many Islands, some will say lets move to that atol or idyl, but the real islands are within the hearts and minds, not dirt or concrete.
    It and they, can only exist within those who have found that place where no matter the buffeting their shores may take they find a higher place than the rest of mankind.
    Those places are found not by exploiting or trampling upon others dreams, although you must resist their nightmares, for the majority of world do not seek to elevate others without being elevated hemselves.
    To give and reciev in return peace of heart and mind you have to have it inside of you in the first place.
    Walk the streets of your nations mind and then contemplate upon what you find, For. It is mostly a sea or barren wasting lands. All except for a very few peacefull Islands.
    If you are upon one, now extend its borders do not try and hide behind a wall; or too soon the walls will extend above your ground. And that is no more than a pit.

    How many live within a pyramid?
    Can one sit comfortably at its apex?
    They while built by man are meant to exhalt a man or placate a god unseen or if but a man a poor example of what creation has wrought.
    Oh we do build pyramids, atop our buildings that mimic religious spires; and within their hollow shells we fill it with. The slave labor beneath those on top.The pyraminds of old exist because they were not hollow but the ones who built and ordered the build if they found godhood it now lies beneath barren sands or stuck under glass to be gawked at.
    What good be they today except to entice tourist and like the men of old. To toil and then worship a creation without human habitation , as a Wonder?
