How can anyone be at peace without alot of money?

I see so many people who seem to not give a rats azz about how their financial situation is. These people are behind on everything, rent, cell phone, and most of them even have kids which makes them even more broke! How TF can anyone be so passive about their security? How do these people obtain peace of mind at all??? They seem to not care. As if they just let go of caring about what happens. 

I have enough money to float myself without any income for at least 3 years and still have a constant impending feeling as is im lacking or behind. What is the secret to these un-caring people??

    People with a lot of money are not at peace at all.

    They are highly responsible for their source of money and any mistake they make they can end up in jail.

    Money won't give you happiness for an example.

    I am not poor I am considered normal. I was about to get with money what I desire I don't desire much but now I am faced with a much bigger problem. I don't know what I want. I am not happy.

    Well, their lack of concern with financial matters will mean current and future financial hardship.  Study after study shows that a lack of money is a bigger source of stress than most anything else.  So they are probably really stressed about their life choices.  I think the same about my situation as you think about yours, and that's the secret to financial success, as unpleasant as the constant thought of not having enough is.

    Could be they are just as stressed about that as you are.  Or more stressed.  We all respond to it differently.  But most of us are definitely stressed about that very same subject.  How can we not be?  Coordinating in a reality that is as indefinite and changing as ours is, having more than enough money to coordinate with it is only part of the problem.  Keeping enough money for it is harder.  Especially when no amount of money is sufficient to coordinate well in reality.  Most all humans do have that problem in front of them.  Few have it behind them.

    Anonymous said it best. There is absolutely no other way to have peace than thru Jesus. You can start by reading your Bible. Ask GOD to direct your path. You will be astonished.

    As a human i believed,  heard that wealth and spirituality don’t mix. That the riches of this world are nothing compared to the hereafter and pursuit of wealth is not a Godly exercise.Wealth in any religion is not a bad thing. It is an instrument. Wealth should be understood as a means to an end, and not loved as an end itself. That kind of relationship to wealth is only possible for some people. Those people have certain traits which allow us to recognize them. Let’s call them the “Righteous Entrepreneurs”. For such people, they should pursue wealth with a clear view on the purpose and end-goal of that wealth. Such end-goals should typically derive from overarching objectives such as benefiting humanity and this generation. For everyone else, they too should maximize their wealth as much as reasonably possible but it need not be their main contribution to the world. They also have a vital role to play. Let’s call this group the “Righteous Worker”.

    The kind of wealth we need to achieve in order to achieve parity is in the trillions of dollars and needs both the Righteous Worker and Righteous Entrepreneur to do their bit. The Righteous Entrepreneur should aim at making game-changing wealth. The Righteous Worker should aim at investing in the Mankind ecosystem and in Righteous Entrepreneurs, and to make sure they are putting their savings and investments to the best use possible.

    Jesus Christ can satisfy the longings in your heart much more than money can! Just give Christianity a try, I think you'd be surprised at the peace the holy spirit can give you!

    I don't have a lot of money, that's because I'm up to date with my bills, I have food to eat, electricity to chill/cook it with and do other things that require electricity, a roof over my head. I live in a nice flat, which has all that I need right now in my life. So why shouldn't I be contented.
