I said "Good morning" to an old lady just to see whether she'd be shocked at my friendliness...she was actually shocked. This would be normal courtesy in a small town.
But the real tell tale factor was that people on the bus seemed even more selfish than people in less well off areas- an old man with a crutch stood standing there while much more able bodied people sat reading their Financial Review. Although that bus was saturated in designer brands, South Sea Black Pearls and Massive Sparkling Carats, nobody bothered to offer him a seat.
In any case it's been a fun social experiment for me to partly simulate and experience living as the truly wealthy do, complete with 4 ornate marble fireplaces, lol.
I've always not cared enough about money, so much so that my folks frequently tell me off for not having any "drive". But I did imagine that if one were wealthy it would be handy cos you then have so much more capacity to help others...but then I realise what usually happens when people get wealthy is that their lifestyles just get more lavish and so although their pay packets may increase their lifestyle burgeons so that they can just accommodate it. People stay selfish and stingy-I guess that is how one gets ahead in a dog eat dog material world anyway. I guess it's just normal human behaviour.
In any case I realise in this city unless you're pretty rich, life is not too comfortable, so I think I better start caring to make money more. Ultimately it would be ideal to just get together with someone rich who actually cares about money and loves making it so I can get on with my main purpose of being able to help others without having to worry about basic needs such as food and shelter! :-p
Keep praying HO, thanks :)
