While money is completely neutral, your desire for money can do a world of good. Although we've been brainwashed to believe that wanting and talking about money is bad, money in and of itself is morally neutral and capable of immense transformation.
Money is a tool you can leverage to create good in the world. Just like a wrench or a hammer, money can be used to kill or to build something of real value. It's your choice. Once you accept your desire as good, you can learn to master this tool for the benefit of yourself and those around you.
Once you stop pretending and accept your natural wants, you give yourself the freedom to move ahead. You probably want what everyone wants – freedom, beauty, experiences, and the resources to help your friends and family. You don't have to feel guilty for these wants any longer. The time for shame and regret is over.
There is more than enough money to go around. You are as worthy as anyone else. Your desire is good. In fact, as you learn to make your desire stronger, the better things will be.
