(In Proverbial Form)
By Dr Gee
Matter influences an individual than anything.
The craving for material things occurs in a natural way.
An individual is tempted much by his material possessions.
Matter in itself is not evil.It is we who make it evil.
Individual relationships are corrupted by the desire for material things.
Most of our interpersonal relationships are based on the desire for material things.
An individual deceives oneself knowingly or unknowingly if motivated by matter.
The existence of matter is a relative phenomenon valid in its own limits.
Matter cannot be so presented apart from time and space.
The idea of matter appears with action.
We reach matter through the union of space and time.
Materialism is the attempt to explain what is immediately given us by what is given us indirectly.
Materialism uses all that is material as a solid basis for its explanation.
Materialism fails before the principle that there is no object without a subject.
What we need is material development backed by spiritual development.
Our experiences come as a material acquirement.
Matter is not the end but only a means to the end.
Material knowledge without spiritual insight is superficial.
Matter is not fruitful without the spirit that gives real meaning to it.
