Money: The Almighty Deity of the 21st Century!

Photo by Franco on

In today’s modern world, we have discovered the greatest phenomenon known to mankind. It’s not alien life or teleportation devices; it’s something far more captivating and alluring. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the supreme deity that governs our lives, the one and only… money! Yes, that’s right, money has risen to godlike status, and we are all its devout disciples.

Gone are the days when we worshipped ancient gods and goddesses, seeking divine intervention. Who needs God when we have dollar bills and shiny gold coins? Money has become the holy grail, the ultimate purpose of our existence. It has the power to make or break dreams, relationships, and even nations. Move over, heavenly beings – the global economy is where the real action is!

From the moment we take our first breath, society drills into our heads the profound significance of this magical entity. We are told that money can buy happiness, success, and unlimited Wi-Fi data plans. Who needs love and emotional fulfillment when you can have a brand new Lamborghini parked in your driveway? Priorities, people!

In this relentless pursuit of financial bliss, we have created an entire ecosystem that revolves around the worship of money. We have economists who decipher the divine messages hidden within fluctuating stock prices. We have financial advisors who play the role of high priests, offering sacred rituals to appease the money gods. And let’s not forget about those famous billionaires who are elevated to the status of demigods, showered with adoration and media attention.

We have become slaves to the almighty dollar, forsaking our sanity in the process. We chase after promotions, higher salaries, and bigger bank accounts as if they were the keys to eternal salvation. We sacrifice our time, our health, and our relationships at the altar of wealth accumulation. It’s almost as if we believe that St. Peter at the pearly gates will only grant entry to those with a fat bank balance.

But let’s pause for a moment and reflect on the absurdity of it all. Imagine a world where trees magically sprout money instead of leaves, and children play in the streets, tossing bundles of cash instead of playing catch. It sounds like a dystopian comedy sketch, doesn’t it?

We have become so consumed by the pursuit of wealth that we have forgotten the true essence of life. We’ve turned into money-hungry zombies, mindlessly chasing after the next paycheck or investment opportunity. Our conversations revolve around the size of our portfolios, rather than the wonders of the universe or the joy of human connection.

Let’s reclaim our humanity, my fellow disciples of the almighty dollar! Let’s remember that money is just a means to an end, not the end itself. It’s time to put the absurdity in perspective and find a balance between financial stability and the things that truly matter – love, laughter, and the occasional Netflix binge.

Remember, my friends, life is too short to be spent counting pennies. And if you find yourself in need of a good chuckle, just remember that the best things in life are free – like oxygen, laughter, and the joy of reading satirical articles like this one. Stay sane, stay human, and keep those dollar bills in their proper place.

Remember that money is made for man and not vice-versa. You must be wondering why I have been writing about the love for money for two days in a row. Someone very close to me pointed out that I was completely useless because I failed to get a bank job and wasted my life on writing stories and blogs and not earning a single penny. He implied that I am a financial burden on my mother and brother. Even at his old age, he has been busy making money without wasting a single moment. According to him, people who are financial burden like me should not even exist. He didn’t say it explicitly but this is what I understood from his speech. It’s sad and pathetic that people bargain with vegetable vendors and street hawkers but open their wallets and gladly shell out bundles of notes to the poor waiters in five-star hotels and those working in shopping malls.

I am grateful to God for giving me wonderful human beings in the form of blogger friends who have always encouraged me with their kind, loving words. In my opinion, dear friends, you are my real wealth besides my mom, brother and daughter.


Thank you so much for taking your precious to visit my website. Hope you enjoyed reading my blogs. 😊😊
