In the last few days I had the chance to walk in the shoes of a rich person. You will most probably ask how is it possible to do just for few days ? Have I won the lottery ? Has somebody given me money ?
All I did was that I worked like a rich person. I worked very long hours. It was only for few days but this was enough for me to get the "feeling" of what it is to be a rich person. And if I continued working like this, I would have quite a lot of money and with the time I would be able to invest them further, which would get me more profits and after few months or years I would be able to call myself officially a rich person. And all this sounds fine but there is a lot of "buts".
1. Working long hours with this intensity immediately affect the physical body - pains and aches, tiredness etc. I did not have stress yet like the rich businessman but it would come with the time for sure. Our human body has a wonderful ability to adjust itself to various situations and conditions but it has also certain limits which should not be crossed. But in the case of a rich persons or businessmen this safety lines have been pushed far above the limits. What are the consequences of it ? The body cannot adjust itself any more to this new situation because as I said before this is beyond the safety zone. Thus the body starts to deteriorate. It starts with small aches and pains but if this is being ignored than it develops into serious disorders. It is just a matter of time and depends on the resistance and the strength of the constitution of the body. And of course we have been taught in our society that if you have pain, than go to the doctor who prescribes you a painkiller. We all know the cause of the problem but instead of addressing it and correcting it, we decide to treat the symptoms with a pill and ignore common sense. And this goes on and on and on until one day we find out that we have cancer or some other serious disorder. And of course most of those people seem to be so surprised by this shocking news. But why should you be surprised ? The serious disorder ( e.g cancer ) doesn't appear in the body from one day to another. It takes long time before it starts to develop but when it reaches critical point it grows fast.
Now... let's come back to my situation. Within a few days of me working long hours I started to get pains and aches in my body and the tiredness started to accumulate. I immediately saw how this affects the functioning of my body. I could have taken painkillers to deal with the pains, I could have taken few cups of coffee to deal with the tiredness or I could have taken some other shit ( drugs ) that would also help me suppress the symptoms and continue to work like a rich person does, so that I could get more money.
But I see clearly future consequences of this type of behavior and now it is up to me to make a common sense decision. And I know for fact that everybody - just like me - knows the consequences of this type of actions and decisions but we ignore them because of the desire to become rich. And after some time of ignoring the signs we become more and more lost on the way until one day we are shocked by the news about cancer or some other serious disorder.
I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to abuse my body through working long hours to fulfill my desire of becoming rich.
I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to ignore the signs from my body in the form of pains and aches and I continued working long hours because I wanted to fulfil my desire to become rich.
I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to ignore the signs from my body in the form of pains and aches, tiredness and suppress them by taking painkillers, drinking excessive amounts of coffee or taking other stimulants.
I forgive myself that I have not allowed myself to realise that cancer and other serious disorders in the body don't appear suddenly but develop over a period of time. And it all develops because I ignore and suppress the signs and symptoms from the body in the form of pains, aches and tiredness instead of taking actions towards correcting the cause.
I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to believe that cancer and other serious disorders in the body are not curable and unpreventable.
