"Free and critical minds can emerge only by a return to the source-the primary sources. A free and critical mind takes nothing for granted and is not intimidated by "authorities" who frequently may be more confused than the general public. Free and critical minds seek truth without chauvinism or shame." - Dr. Asa G. Hilliard III (1)



Continuously nutrition pieces of your minds and health must follow.


“One single bit of information, if missing, incomplete, out of order or just plain wrong, has the potential to significantly alter thought processes, conclusions, decisions and behaviors, even when that one single logic entry exists in a sea of accuracy.”

Expanded Definitions: What Is Money? Quotes, Proverbs & A Joke.

Basic Definition

Money can be anything that can serve as “a medium of exchange that facilitates trade.”

Expanded Definition

Money is a standard measure of value that makes it easier to trade different types of resources. (From ”Expanded Definitions: What Is Time – Money? Keeping Track of Time & Climate Change”)

In other words, money is a temporary placeholder for the value of natural resources.

Money has no value unless there is a resource it represents. When a person works for money, that money represents multiple resources (time, energies, choices, beliefs, values, knowledge, talent, abilities). This is why businesses have departments called human resources.

Illusions

1. You need money to live.
2. Money means success.
3. Money is evidence of the truth.
4. Money is power.

Realities

1. Money is a part of the economic system, resources are a part of the ecosystem.
2. You only need the ecosystem to live.
3. “Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome.” (Dr. Booker T. Washington)
4. Success or failure depends on how well we use available resources.
5. The biggest part of how we make it hard on ourselves is to misuse and under-utilize our resources. In other words, you have not because you waste a lot.
6. “Power is not money but to define money.” (Dr. Bobby Wright)
7. It's possible to have money and still be in slavery because “slavery is when all life sustaining institutions [basic needs] are controlled by another group.” (Dr. Bobby Wright)
8. If anything, make money that makes you versatile, not servile.
9. Faith in money is a vice of the highest cost and ultimate price.
10. Money is a tool forged from resource, only a fool sees it as the only recourse.
11. Instead of saving money, we should be recycling money.
12. It's not possible to believe in anything greater and be limited by anything lesser.
13. You don't need a receipt to exchange a belief.
14. Money is expensive unless money represents the full value of the resources you trade to get money.
15. Wages are a wager.
16. “He that trusteth in his riches shall fall; but the righteous shall flourish as a branch.” (Proverbs 11:28)
17. Capitalism keeps you focused on its money instead of your resources.

If you employ your resources via true education - knowledge of self, self-study and independence of basic needs - life will no longer teeter on the narrow fulcrum of money but rest securely on the broad foundation of resources.
