Love or Greed
Watercolour & collage 60 x 80 cm
We can choose to shape our world through Love or greed. Unfortunately, greed has taken hold in many people’s lifestyles through consumerism and materialism, abetted by easy credit and plastic cards which tempt us to live beyond our means.
As indicated here, Love will always outweigh greed in the end. On the lefthand scale we see a loving family sharing the simple pleasures of life: music, Nature, play, and each other’s company. On the other side the greedy person has more than s/he needs but, blindfolded to Spirit, continues to grasp for more and more. Essentially alone amidst all their riches, they discover that all the money in the world can’t buy happiness.
The poorest person can be the greediest and the wealthiest can be the most generous — what tips the scale is whether we are motivated by Love, or greed.
