We are very lucky to live where all our basic needs are met and so there is no really reason to be greedy. My advice to people suffering from GREED is to acknowledge it and understand it for what it is — a survival instinct.

And then to move past it. I saw this and laughed….. There was a period in my life where one minute I had a very well paid job, the next I had the same amount of time in the job out of one. Particularly if it is something you really need. Funnily enough, someone just commented the same thing about Arrogance — lots of people willingly own up to Self-deprecation but few own up to Arrogance or Greed. I would say the more we mature psychologically and spiritually, the less selfish are our desires.
Life gives us the means and opportunity to develop from egoism to altruism via insight, empathy and compassion.
I guess we just have to find the motive. I am struggling to fully understand the greed of a family member, I am trying to explore coping mechanisms further advice would be useful to me. That they need an excessive amount. That no amount is enough, or too much. That life itself is somehow dependent upon acquiring and holding onto these things, yet these things are merely just artificial substitutes for what life really needs love, contact, nurturing.
So, what about if you never steal from people but you steal from stores?

THEY are. Martyrdom convinces us that we are innocent but exploited by dark forces that leave us impotent. It absolves us from taking responsibility for or own choices. Yeah, but the price goes back to the consumer and the price goes up. The company has to make its money back from theft, and the consumers end up paying for it. Love is not greed. Expressing a desire for a parent capable of showing love is not a selfish desire. Rendering love as useless is what convinces the conciousness of the heart, which has 40, neurons, to send messages of hunger to the 0.
Whether or not this manifestation is a command for something visible or invisible, something missing or known in the body as present, neurons works according to what is present, needed, missing or within the body. The pituitary gland already knows what it is, and the size of the object of desire is full known in the 40, neurons in the heart, which is the first organ to form in the body.
The heart is where image of the body was first formed from a single neuron and sent out, ending up in formed brain that has a pituitary gland that knew exactly what size to make you and what form and dimensions your body features should take on as the outer region of the heart. The trippy part is that the pineal gland is the first part of the brain to form so your pineal gland knew enough about you to be able to tell you what your unformed body would look like even before your pituitary gland told you to grow from a fetus into a baby in utero days later.
God is Love. Love is all around you. Love is inside of you. Love is unconditional. Love makes the heart beat faster. Love presses against sensory cognitive dissonnace within the body. Conditional love is yet inadequate to address or reveal hunger to or satisfy or create hunger within the consciousness of the body. Whether consciously, subconsiously or unconsciously it seeks to fulfill whatever image it reflects.
Unconditional Love is beyond inherent human capacity. Conditions are infinite guidelines beset on all sides. And to have spoken directly to Love out of a desire that Love reveal the hidden quintesssen of Love and allow this to confirm its desired objective throughout the body as the object of its desire, is the desire of the stomach to reveal a gut feeling to replace a desire hidden in the back of thd mind to command the most powerful muscle in the body that is directly connected to the heart to begin to speak to Love.
What about 2nd and 3rd generation rich people who are also greedy? Or corporate greed? And corporate greed, is that just an amalgamation of unchecked greedy individuals, a greed cult?

I live in the U. But the addiction to money is presented as a positive character trait, when in reality, it has the most potential to do the most harm to the greatest number of people. Does capitalism, which by its very nature stratifies society, foster greed? Hey guys!
