When I think of the great wealth some people, corporations, and governments are amassing, I think of how short life is and wonder about the effort wealth requires from its seekers. I think the more material goods a person or family has the more they are condemning their descendants. Like a curse that may hit the first generation or maybe the second, definitely the third if fortunate but no matter how they prepare, the bloodline will become corrupt. The children will eventually become warped, unable to maintain family or company traditions, expectations, and norms. The wealthy may make their name known, but their bloodline will spoil. Service-to-self beings relish this fact because they believe, “Who can be better than me?” Service-to-other beings ignore this eventuality.
