It is possible to be in a high-power career and have a lot of money and still be on a spiritual path. It takes great consciousness and the desire to dwell in the spirit rather than be propelled by the reptilian brain and its fearful drive towards acquisition.
The survivalist reptilian brain only wants to win, at whatever cost. It doesn’t reason out, “Win for what?” Win so you can die with the most toys? Win so you can struggle and be miserable your whole life, looking to the future as a way to happiness while sacrificing the present?
There are very successful yet spiritual people who have been able to keep balance between the world of the Spirit and the world of commerce. Those are the ones to model.
