Why So Many Accumulate Vast Wealth

 Do you notice how many who are very rich, even billionaires, want to continually accumulate more? There is never enough to make them feel safe, because this need arises from fear. 

They are trying to alleviate their fear through control. The false belief is that money can be a substitute for God and that by having far more than they could ever need, they are in control. The crazy thing is that money is just green paper or electronic entries in a computer. It rests on nothing except the belief of those who are willing to accept it, which could go away in an instant. We are all putting our faith in something that is temporary and like quicksand. 

Money is of the world, and regardless of how much you accumulate, it cannot fill the longing for Him. People who worship money never think that what they have is enough, and so they strive for more, believing (unconscious level) that if they can just get more they will be able to fill that longing. Or they believe that by controlling everything with money and power, they can avoid or deflect God's punishment (another false belief in that God is Love, not punishing). 

Money, like everything else, is energy. It is not good or bad. It is how it is used and how it is seen that is "good" or "bad". We can have great abundance, and this can include great financial resources, but it is what we do with it --- as what we do with any energy that is available to us -- that determines what we have achieved in this life. Do we use it to benefit ourselves or to benefit the whole?
