deceived yourselves and have believed that life is about material success.
When you have learned to elevate your thinking, you lift your sights far
higher than mere trifles of dust. You have not recognized that having is
your substitute for being. You have not seen that the whole of your life
has been the pursuit of acceptance and approval and you have believed
that by acquisition these can be found. You would rather be accepted by
man for having money than for the kindness of your heart. You have
sought approval where there truly is none. Your motives have always
been selfish, even when you have pretended generosity – always have
you sought approval and acceptance.
