Some people have extra money. Their savings are padded, their debts are paid, and they wonder, “Should I invest?” That depends on your primary motivation. Do you desire great wealth? Do you desire to protect your morality? Or do you wish to make the world a better place?
For “maximizing my return” is greed’s license for cruelty, “protecting my vows” reveals a heart that is rigid, fearful, and elitist; but “making the world a better place” demonstrates the world view of one who is flexible, loving, and egalitarian. Take my word for it, choose “making the world a better place,” for fifty percent of the Buddha’s eight-fold path pertains to loving-kindness; and empathy is always the best bet.
There are MANY investing institutions. It’s a buyer’s market. So don’t be afraid to put your foot down; for, as the 1970’s commercial reminds us “Choosy moms choose Jiff,” be a choosy mom. You want to work with a broker who is familiar with as well as enthusiastic for investments that aggressively promote ecological, zoological, and humanitarian sustainability and rehabilitation. Just as the leaves of a plant always turn to the sun, our ecosystem, our fellow animals, and our fellow humans long to be their best selves. In the words of the fictional Dr. Ian Malcom “Life ah… finds a way.”
It is safe to use your resources to make the world a better place. For, in all honesty, do you really think that you (oh puny human) can, for even a moment, out give the universe?
