Make money wisely
As to wealth, we need firstly to figure out the aims for making money, the relationships among humans, between humans and society. Then it follows how to correctly obtain and wisely use money.Otherwise, men will only become a tool for making money. The most fundamental aim of making money is to survive, to support the family. However, in modern society, many people attach the desire for honor, security, freedom and happiness etc. to wealth, having which is regarded as having everything and the absence of which is equaled to the absence all of these.
After careful consideration, we may findthat all these are directed to the mind, quite different from wealth itself.Wealth means nothing to a dark and empty mind; while one is possible to own allthese if one’s mind is bright and rich, even when one has to live a simple life with scanty wealth.
Secondly, to survive in the society, one relies not on money but on the direct or indirect labor and creation of countless people. Money is but a tool, a mark. Having internalized this point,what we should bear in mind while laboring for and utilizing the wealth we’ve obtained, is to benefit and repay the public, instead of speculating for our own gains and meeting our own desires.
Wealth is important for both individuals and the public but not that important, not the ultimate aim nor the only one.To sober up on this point, we would not easily become slaves of money.
