Money is the root of all evil. If you are willing to discard the evil in you, you will find the true kindness in your soul. No doubt, money is important; it makes the world goes round for those who has it and makes life a living hell for those without it. If money is evil, why does the absence of it makes it a living hell ? It does sounds like, as if the Devil needs to exist in life. Whoever doubted the presence of the two horned being is obviously wrong.
We are living in a materialistic world, where money matters, where evil exists. Don’t mistaken my point, I don’t imply that if you are wealthy, you are the son of the Devil, neither do my statement indicate that you’re an angel if you are pennyless. It is important to realise the fact that we, human should not allow ourselves to succumb to this evil. Most often human are blinded with the search of wealth and as a result, we tend to disregard our own well being and sacrifice our morality.
How many times at work in a day, that you have told or did a white lie to gain advantage in a situation ? The corporate world calls it the “bullshit talk” where else the retail world regards it as the “marketing strategy”. If we truly live in honor of our morality, all of us would be living in the stone age. So, don’t feel bad if you sold your last “unworthy” product to an “unneeded person” just to meet your sales quota of the month. We are just making a living. That’s the sad truth about life. Of course, they are a few awaken ones, who seek other values in life besides money. Most often, the treasure hunt is for “love”. These hunters are called the “love seekers”.
Having clarified the evil in money, I have unconsciously discovered a trial, a test for seeking true friendship and love. I’m sure you may be aware of the idea but have not read it in black and white. I could be so wrong, hence, I seek your view in my Pondering Notion.
A person who truly values your friendship or love is willing to lend you a reasonable amount of money. Allow me clarify the ambiguity of ‘reasonable amount of money’, it is not a dollar or a ringgit. An amount that would raise an eyebrow. This is with the assumption that the person can afford the sum.
Do you agree ? Cast you vote.
Err, actually, it is the other way around. If someone truly values your friendship or love, they would not ask to borrow money. That’s what banks and your “yi mah gu chehs” are for. Like your posts says, money can be “evil,” and there’s nothing “eviler” than wedging money in the relationships. Many friendships have gone down the drain because of money. Best to not have money involved is the moral of my story 😛 But it it was a dire emergency, and you have no one else to turn to but your friend, then at least do things the right and legal way, have a document written up and notarized.
hey girl, long time no see.

I haven’t received a reply from you, did you receive my email?
Sorry Chris, hardly go online these days. Just replied your email.
Interesting thought.My personal view is,to me,money is just an object,something that we need to survive in this world.However,money can be earned back.Therefore,I will not hesitate and will GIVE my money based on my own financial strength to the person that needed it most,what more to the people closest to us,be it our loved ones or our best friends.Sure,money issue can lead to other things but,as long as we cleared the line in the beginning,and that it is a gift and not a loan,it will mitigate it.My humble opinion…….still poor me…
