8 MATERIAL SATISFACTION
The individual must learn to deal with the material things of life, the practical matters. He will find himself at home in the business world—with much capability as an efficient administrator or executive. He will learn how to handle money—how to accumulate it, how to spend it wisely. The individual will work for MATERIAL SATISFACTION. This may mean emphasis on money to buy the best in houses, cars, furnishings, trips. (Perhaps, if he can reach the highest level of this lesson, he will see that material freedom can mean relying very little on money or material matters. Few ever gain this insight.)
The individual will be very conscious of status in relation to material things and will work to satisfy his need for status to prove his superiority. He may appear single-minded, rigid or stubborn to others. Striving for power and high material goals may make him aware of the limitations of his ability or the restrictions of his circumstances.
