The lie of worldly wisdom uncovered (or what people say . . . and what it means)
- Do what works. (truth is irrelevant)
- Money doesn't mean anything to me.
It never does when you have more than you know what to do with. Anyway, we are not attached to money itself, but to what it buys. Money can buy inner happiness as well as physical health.
- I don't fear death.
Who does? Death is the ultimate escape from suffering. On the contrary, it makes more sense to to look forward to death than to fear it. No, we do not fear death, but dread what precedes death - the pain, and the loss of our dreams.
