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. The more material goods a person or family has the more they are condemning their descendants. Like a curse that will settle on the first generation or maybe further down the line, but no matter how they prepare, the blood line will become corrupt. The children will eventually become warped, unable to maintain family or company traditions, expectations, and norms. Wealth may insure that a name survives, but almost all of their blood line will spoil. Service-to-self beings relish this fact believing that their decedents will not accomplish more than they because they believe, “Who can be better than me?” Service-to-other beings ignore this eventuality, but they always want their children to be better than they.
