One sub theme brought up in a thread i Oped was the idea that people who have been wealthy their whole life and never had to worry about mortgage and
losing their job and those kind of survival pressures of life; cannot really impart and tell the average person anything useful to path to
The premise of this was the wealthy person does not deal with the survival reality of the daily grind the average
person faces and therefore cant be in a position to understand the average persons struggles.
The context of this discussion relates to the weathy person who were born to wealth and always have known it and never had to worry about getting job
or renting, and eeking out a living. All survival necessities to them such as house, food, entertainment has always been provided to them.
In the path to enlightenment a average person follows in there life can these wealthy persons impart and tell the average person anything useful to
their path to enlightenment?
These type of wealthy person differ most significanty in their lives because they are not engaged with the pressures of the daily suvival routines of
survival. All materials required for their own or families well being have always been provided for.
The always been wealthy persons will they have a much lower threshold tolerance to dealing with people, because they never have had the same level of
direct confrontation exposure to the everday life grind brings to the average person.
The manifestation of this may be the weathy persons feels more easily intimidated, agititated and stressed in situations dealing with people if they
find themselves confronted with everyday people who are filled with different motivations and points of view on life.
What happens if the wealthy person seeks using their priviledged position to develop a movement following to become a Guru. Should the average person
view the wealthy person as a geniune or a false Guru?
What happens if the wealthy person comes on a forum such as Ats and becomes stressed and upset because they dont think the average person is getting
their ideas on truth and freedom, is that the average persons failing to listen?
I personally do not have the answers to these questions so i throw it to you people to let me know what you think.
