Money Myth #4: 

There's nothing money can't buy.

 

There is something which even the richest person in the world cannot buy with money.  Eternal true love which comes from God and is shared with human beings is the most valuable commodity in the universe.  Like God, human beings value true love more than life itself.  It is impossible to put a value on eternal true love. 

Even though a person may have billions of dollars worth of material assets, without one's spouse and descendants, even the richest person on earth would find him or herself to be among the most lonely and miserable of all people.  Given that our earthly life is preparation for our eternal life, those who place the highest value on social status, higher education, or material wealth will be filled with regret when they enter the spiritual world upon their death.  For such a person, it will come as a great shock to discover that what determines the quality of life in the hereafter is the degree to which a person practices true love throughout one's life.

To resemble God, the original being of true love, we should become the owners of true love. We should embody true love and practice it in order to develop our character. This is the way each of us can become true parents. 

Then, what is a life of true love?  True love is the spirit of public service.  It brings the peace that is at the root of happiness.  Selfish love is a mask for the desire to have one's partner exist for one's own sake; true love is free of that corruption.  Rather, its essence is to give, to live for the sake of others and for the sake of the whole.  True love gives, forgets that it has given, and continues to give without ceasing.  True love gives joyfully.  We find it in the joyful and loving heart of a mother who cradles her baby in her arms and nurses it at her breast.  True love is sacrificial love as with a devoted son who gains his greatest satisfaction in helping his parents.  God created the universe out of just such love absolute, unique, unchanging and eternal - investing everything without expectation or the condition of receiving something in return.

True love is the wellspring of the universe. Once a person possesses it, true love makes him or her the center and the owner of the universe.  True love is the root of God and a symbol of His will and power. When we are bound together in true love, we can be together forever, continually increasing in the joy of each other's company.  The attraction of true love brings all things in the universe to our feet; even God will come to dwell with us. Nothing can compare to the value of true love.  It has the power to dissipate the barriers fallen human beings created including national boundaries and the barriers of race and even religion.

The main attributes of true love are that it is absolute, unique, unchanging and eternal, so whoever practices God's true love will live with God, share His happiness and enjoy the right to participate as an equal in His work.  The school where every human being is meant to experience and learn true love is the family.  A family which practices true love is able to live in happiness together with God for all eternity.  Therefore, a life lived for the sake of others, a life of true love, is the absolute prerequisite for entering the kingdom of heaven.
