Wealth: The Toxic Byproduct | Melting Asphalt
If you feel guilty for making money, your moral compass is pointing in exactly the wrong direction — 180-degrees from what is right.

Earnings are a measure of the good done for other people, not evils done against them.

...

The point is, money spent on consumption is toxic — value-destroying. This is true even in our daily lives, without the literal magic window. Every time we spend money on a yacht or an iPhone or a nice jacket or even food, we're taking something of value from society and using it for our own purposes.

...

Earning money (via production) is good for others. Spending it (via consumption) is bad.

On Becoming So Free That You Float Through Life - Siddha Performance
Treat your profession as an expression of your freedom. For if it is not, it’s a “job.” And I will state emphatically that human beings were not meant to be “workers.” They were meant to be Creators. And the only person who can create is the one who is free. If there are parts of your profession that are binding you, change them. Immediately. If there are parts of your profession that give you strife, it is because you are not insisting upon Freedom. Instead, you are hoping that it will come to you if “things start to go your way.”

...

Decide precisely where you would like to go. And if this is too difficult, decide precisely where you no longer wish to be.

Create. Succeed. Earn. Enjoy. But keep it at arm’s length. The only thing to keep in your heart is Freedom. Everything else is negotiable.

Freedom is only available Today. And today is the thing you have ignored for years.
