Create Money

My son is a rich man. He’s not even born yet. His mother and I have created wealth for him before he can conceive of it for himself. My mother and father created this wealth for him, even before I could conceive of it. Their mothers and fathers created wealth for them as well. We are all rich people. As long as one lives he or she is rich, however one must recognize and realize this fact of matter. Our wealth is passed down from the generations before us. Our job is to receive it, create more wealth from it, and deliver it to others.

Money is a representation of time and how that time is or was spent. The value of that time spent is relative to the magnitude at which that time spent is or was worth to others. The more the time spent is worth for others then the more value there is to the money which represents it. Money means absolutely nothing without someone to signify its value. A dollar in the hands of no one is nothing more than a worthless shred of paper. It is a figment of matter which will erode in time if left unattended. One must attend to it and deliver it to another in order for it to matter. One who receives it must acknowledge it as a valuable note of time spent for it to belong to a derived currency of exchangeable commodity. This is the meaning and essence of money.

We perceive ourselves as either rich or poor even without money. Money does not determine the state of being rich or poor, rather it represents the state of the time spent amongst the perceived rich and the poor, whether delivered or received. The poor can deliver money to the rich and neither party feel either rich or poor. Likewise, the rich can deliver to the poor and both feel rich. The rich can believe they are poor, and the poor can believe they are rich, all while no one possesses any money. The fact is, the state of being rich or poor is based solely on how one perceives themselves and more importantly how their time has been spent. This idea is rooted into the sayings “time is money” and “money is no object.” However, those sayings are misleading, because time in fact is not money and money is actually an object. The truer saying is money represents time spent. How well or how poor someone spends their time is not a representation of money, however it does represent itself in their feeling of wealth or poverty. One must have a clear understanding of the difference between time and money in order to amass wealth.

Getting money is quite simple. Often times money is usually laying on the ground unbothered for anyone to casually pick it up and put it in their pocket. Most people walk by pennies and nickels everyday and pay them no mind because they feel it is not enough money to care to stop what they are doing to obtain it. It is understandable that such a small amount in the currency of today someone would care less about these coins and little bits of loose change, but this is one of the easiest and most convenient ways to get money. After all, if getting money is all someone would want in life then there it is sitting right there for them with very little effort to receive it. It is the idea that getting money will create wealth that leads a person astray and misguided. They will spend all of their time doing whatever it takes, whether time spent well or time spent poorly, all for the simple task of getting money. Most of the time the money they receive from simply trying to get money is not enough to satisfy their true and instinctual goal of amassing wealth. They do not feel wealthy once they get the money they’ve been seeking so they continue spending their time trying to get more money and begin to believe to themselves that they are in fact poor. They feel poor all the time while trying to get money because they do not have the amount of money they believe they need or want in order for them to feel wealthy. They have confused getting money with wealth, and have not seen the difference between the time they’ve spent and the money they have received for it. The two things are not the same. They cannot tell that others have not valued the time they’ve spent the way they would like them to because they were so focused on getting money that all others had to do was deliver them a calculated amount of it without having to truly appreciate them or their time in exchange. That is time spent poorly. While questing to get money they do not notice most of all that they are not spending their time well with others! They are selfishly seeking the object of money in exchange for this unappreciated time, therefore they receive what is current to the value of that time spent with others, which consequentially is of little value. Simply getting money will most likely lead to one simply getting money and nothing more. One would have to make believe they are rich in order for spending all their time only to get money to be fulfilling and equal to building wealth.

It is the creation of money which is equal to amassing and building wealth! Once the difference between time and money is clear then a person will spend all of their time well and wisely! They will appreciate others and will share meaningful time and energy with them. Ideas will be exchanged and innovative products and new tangible creations will arise. It is the time well spent that will garner more from others. The service of one another’s time and energy being appreciated will equate to higher values and substantially gainful working relationships. In time, these relations will cultivate networks of thinkers, builders, and energetic intellectuals who agree to work and share the time it takes to create the products one would want and more than that, but need! You see, it is the time well spent with others which creates those products we spend so much of our time to obtain. It is the time well spent that is of highest value to everyone! You cannot amass and build wealth based upon poorly spent time. Your time spent poorly will not equate to a fortune. However, one may get plenty of money while spending all of their time poorly. It is not a matter! Time spent poorly does not matter at all. One will have to believe he or she is rich in order to enjoy spending their time poorly. Why delude in such an idiotic perplexity? Spending time well and wisely is truly fulfilling and leads to actual wealth! You see the difference! Money is an object! Time well spent is wealth! They are different and will never be the same thing. Nevertheless, money can surely be created and gotten through one spending all of his or her time very well with others! It is key to first notice how well one spends their time alone which must be mastered. Only then will others see the worth in appreciating their own time spent with that him or her. Time spent well alone through seeking what it is that is worth building and creating is the beginning of amassing wealth. The creation of wealth starts by first thinking about it to oneself! One must then develop their wealthy creation and offer to share it with others. It will surely be greatly appreciated no matter how much or how little in the beginning. It will grow wealth so long as one continues to build upon it with more time well spent. To create money is to create an idea worthy of others spending their time well with that same idea. That is how wealth is built! This is how money is created. One must understand how to create money.

Internet Fights

I can honestly admit that there was a time before now when I would search the web for internet fight videos to see what craziness people would post of street fights and school students pouncing on one another for the world to see. Since then I’ve grown to disgust these videos as they’ve become more and more popular over these short years. It appears now that people are in the streets taunting and instigating these fights now specifically for the camera. I don’t look at the sensation of the violence the same as I did before. Nowadays I see the images as a stark reality of what we’ve degraded to as a society and what poor future we have in store for the following generations. Aside from the slightly present anti cyber bully campaigns that are out to curb the foolishness there doesn’t seem to be a foreseeable end to the display of ignorance we’ve come too accustomed to lately. There needs to be an end somehow someway.

My biggest problem is when I see inner city people of color engaging in senseless violence on camera. The root of the fight is almost never revealed and it only looks like a bunch of dummies out to brutally kill each other all while the camera person chuckles, heckles, and instigates the violence further and further. As time has progressed I’ve noticed a key difference in what these videos used to be and what they are now. Today people are prepared for the camera and the camera is the true judge. If the camera wasn’t present I seriously doubt the violence would be as brutal. The individuals in these fights are now performing for an audience they know is larger than the one physically present. The desensitization has reached a point when people are dying on camera and nobody flinches. When will people realize we are our only enemies?

As we continue to perpetuate what is a new phenomenon of instantaneous access to viral violence, we will get entranced by something that is not healthy for our own senses as well for our culture. Everyone will find it absolutely normal to stop what they’re doing on a quiet day out in town to record a street fight and upload it onto the web from their recording device, laugh and share the images, then go about their day. No one will stop to think, what about the innocent who saw that and now think it’s okay to move along and allow violence to supersede peace? Ignorance cannot be the answer to random violence.

As law enforcement becomes a larger presence in the social atmosphere, who will protect children from the grips of police who don’t mind apprehending the young people they see engaging in the stupidity of these videos? No one will, because ironically their parents will also be apprehended due to the fact they are in the same video. There has to be a correction to this. I’m ashamed of the dumbness possessed by people who share my skin color in these videos. Every last one who still thinks it’s not their problem, but those in the videos should feel just as ashamed.

I believe we’re embarking on a time in America when racial inequality will take a backseat to social inequality full and out right. People of color will be hanging on to the argument of racial inequality for dear life, meanwhile society will say, “but look at how stupid most of you act in public.” A video will be shown of a school fight, an apartment complex fight, a fast food restaurant fight, and a fight between a family. Everyone will look at each other and say, “well that’s just those types of people.” The idea that there is a racial divide will be diluted and those who are ignorant to the fact will be forgotten. This is not what we should wish for. We can’t allow our actions to be the reason we are denied access to the gains of our society. It’s time for our cameras to display something more important. Until we find out what that is then we need not press record.


25 Of The Most Unbelievably Overcrowded Places On The Planet


Some of these are pretty surprising.


The Most Beautiful Day of My Life

I just want you to know that today I received a great epiphany which I had been subconsciously avoiding for far too long. I am now more benevolent as a human and my will to give to the less fortunate is greater by a large measure than it was 24hrs ago.

I want to thank you for always stressing this concept to me since before I can remember. Now it makes more sense to me and I will never forget to act in a kind and pleasant manner, even when I am having a bad day. I will be wise with my giving, but I will always try my best to be a good person everyday.

Thank you Mommy for giving me life and raising me well. I love you.
