love is our currency not money

I feel that a main problem within society is the lack of community.
Since schooling we have been taught to compete with others through exam results and sports. I feel this kind of individualistic competition has left a firm imprint on most minds which has resulted in many collecting and hoarding money and objects. Many are addicted to the short thrill of watching digital numbers rack up and gathering cars and clothes. This kind of individual then presents their collection to the world like a trophy in an aim to prove to others his/her self-worth. This is the most artificial and deluded sense of success which instantly represents no value when they walk past the countless numbers of suffering humans without any sense of compassion or desire to share and help. What is it one is lacking so much of to keep them in this mindset of seeking a step up from the next man??
Surely what they are lacking is love and what they are misunderstanding is that money is limited and that love is infinite.
To achieve a state of true fulfilment one must be filled with the infinite.
And to be filled with the infinite one must look within themselves to understand that they are already complete.
One who is rich in heart understands that they are a part of something much greater than just the individual self.
They understand that the brothers and sisters they share this existence with are on equal level to them.
They understand that all they need is the basic essentials which really deep down we all know is enough to fulfil us.
Love, food, water and shelter.
If you have all of these you are rich. Stop moaning, comparing and competing for that attitude will be the death of your true beauty. Anything more than that is a luxury which we should be grateful for but not craving over. If you have more than the next person it should be your greatest desire to share.
We are all one, a family. What is causing suffering is the delusion that we are separate from that homeless person across the street. We are not!! Your sharing this unexplainable fairy tale with that person, he or she is a family member, seek to help them if they are in need.
Gestures with pure thought, love and effort speak louder than a flicking of coin to cup. Maybe buy them some food which profoundly shows those in need that people care and that their life is appreciated.
It is actions like such which give people hope. And it is hope which lifts people up and out of the darkness.
There are many good people of this earth I am not denying that but we should be constantly reminding ourselves to help whoever in whatever situation.
If you are rich in love you will realise it doesn't run out when you share it with others, if anything it grows stronger and expands throughout all that it touches.
Love is our currency not money.
