House of Assets
Because it governs what we have, which is not simply limited to tangible things. We have our own emotions, just as we have our inner selves, our abilities, our needs and our desires. When we own things, we actually claim ownership of our greatest asset, ourselves.
The use of our assets, including material goods, to the maximum benefit is also in the domain of the second house. Our assets must enhance our lives and that of others, and nurture a regular sense of well-being. This concept promotes value, which is the key to the second house. What do we value, both tangible and intangible? Why do we value it? Who do we value? What do we really own? What do we want to have? Why? Our effective analysis of these questions is a big part of what the Second House is about.
Specifically covered assets by second house include income earned and our ability to influence it, investments and movable property (cars, clothing, jewelry, etc.) Debt is also part of the equation here, as we are responsible for paying our bills. How we view money, wealth (and debt), bankruptcies, savings, budgeting, and finances are all governed by the second house.
For those of us who believe that money makes us independent, it is interesting that this principle finds a place in a second house. Individual freedoms created by the financial ability and sensitivity are marked within this house. To a large extent, our assets and what we do with them helps us to define ourselves as a growing human being.
A step further, will these material goods help us gain social status, recognition, friendship, and love? With proper use, they are well possible. Thus, the implicit purpose of one’s property can be defined as the ability to properly use that property for our best improvement and for the greater good. What more can we ask for if our assets work for us and those around us? Well, another question comes to mind: it is true that what goes around, comes around? Seems right!
