Yes, we are, at this point in time, generally already who we are. As a certain stage in life, our underlying values, our essential character and what motivates us have already long been shaped by our experiences and our beliefs. So, generally, any significant changes in our attitudes, our perspective or our behavior unfortunately requires a life-altering event - a tragedy, an accident, a near-death experience, a grievous loss of a loved one, something that rattles us to the bone and requires us to question ourselves at the deepest level, which in turn, opens a door, an opportunity, a willingness to examine who we are and invites the possibility for change to occur. It's a process of breaking down the old structure in order to rebuild on a firmer more substantive foundation.



Otherwise, we are who we are. And until that point, no amount of effort or persuasion or suggestion by others that we ponder the "errors of our ways" has much, if any, impact. In fact most people who haven't made an concerted effort to self reflect or question their beliefs by a certain stages of development, tend to become more rigid over time. Yet the universe does have a way of waking us up, and often that's thru the experience of deep suffering and loss. 



So, Yes, I wholeheartedly agree that $$$ doesn't fundamentally change who we already are. It merely magnifies who we are, by 100-fold. If we are already kind and generous and loving and forgiving and patient and compassion, we will be more of those things and we will move forward with the great purpose of doing good works that help others by sharing this gift we are given. We are already motivated to uplift others and alleviating their suffering. Because when others suffer, we literally suffer with them. We feel their pain. So we understand that helping others helps us as well.



But if, on the other hand, we're nasty and mean-spirited, narrow-minded, selfish, and narcissistic, focused on only what we can gain for ourselves, continuously make jokes at the expense of others, ridicule, bully, belittle, doubt, and blame everyone else for our problems, we will continue to be that person, on steroids.  

And I believe this is what Yosef is speaking to as he continues to guide us thru the final phase of this process. And again, those of us who do listen carefully and actually consider what he and others say and take it to heart, and strive to become better versions of ourselves will be swayed by those messages and take the advice to heart. We will continue to use this experience as a way to learn more about ourselves and strive to improve who we are.



Unfortunately, some (or most) of those who need the messages most, can't or refuse to hear them. Their arrogance and self-righteous disposition precludes their ability to hear or see clearly. So they will tend to reject the advice and openly mock Yosef and others outright for what they stands for, particularly if it differs from their person beliefs. If it doesn't fit their dogmatic mindset, then it is fully rejected and belittled as false without any consideration at all.



And until, or unless, they literally experience their own version of what I call a "non-negotiable summons for change", through which they are called to task in a very personal and deeply painful life-altering event that causes great suffering and brings them to their knees begging for mercy, which in turn initiates a willingness to change, they will continue to bully and ridicule and over power others in an effort to retain and strengthen their own stance.

 Money cannot buy wisdom or maturity or values or character. Those rich and priceless traits come from a place where money doesn't exist.




Ho'oponopono. May we ALL be blessed with wisdom and grace.
