What do you invest,/
Is it time, money or both/
What is your return?/
Ha2ku by ha2tim

In these tough economic times we need to be careful about our investments. If we are not careful we can fall victim predators, that will try to drain us of all our resources. The two major resources that we have in this life is
1. our time- this is a limited resource that we can not get back. although there is no foreseeable end to it. We as human beings have a limited amount of it. so we have to be careful with this resource. It is the most valuable. When we invest it we must make sure we get a proper return.
2. our Money- an unlimited resource that we can gain by the proper use of our time, to use as a tool of trade. when this resource is used properly it can yeild a proper return that we can further invest or trade for objects.

When we look at these resources we have to be honest with ourselves about how we use them. Some may be waisting their time while others may be waisting their money, and some may be doing both. We are not looking at what return we get for these investments. No matter what it is we do in life there is a return. Are you taking the time to measure what your return is. One of the Universal laws that we deal with in SelfMastery is the law of reciprocity which teaches us "what comes around goes around", for those that never heard of reciprocity it is basically the same principle as karma. Their is no escaping this law. What i have found is that most people I hear speaking about this law only refer to the negative consequences of it. I have heard very few speak of the fact that all actions and investment returns back to the doer. So when we are investing our limited resource (time) into something we have to prepare our self for the return. when we invest our money we have to prepare for the return. So once again I as you what are you investing in? what can you expect your returns to be? Because something is coming so be careful when and where you spend your resources, because it has never been said better than the way Malcolm X "your chickens always come home to roost, and chickens coming home to roost never made me sad", I hope your investments coming home don't make you sad either.
