There are some people who believe that they can prevent cancer by taking preventive measures. One example is actress Angela Jolie, who has undergone elective surgery to prevent cancer. If we have money, can we control our fate?
In the Osashizu is the following:
You might not understand easily if I speak of causality. Listen and understand the truth well. If things happen the way you wish, that is because of causality. If things do not happen the way you wish, that is also because of causality. However hard you try to cause something to happen, it might not happen, such is causality. Were it possible for the power of money to make anything happen, it would be as though the one truth (causality) did not exist. Causality means that the power of money cannot cause things to happen.

Money can indeed influence the daily occurrences in our lives. But what the above passage refers to is that money cannot prevent sufferings in this world. We cannot change what we have done. We must reap what we have sowed. The power of money cannot buy happiness!
