Financeostasis

Homeostasis is the property of an open system, especially living organisms, to regulate its internal environment so as to maintain a stable condition, by means of multiple dynamic equilibrium adjustments controlled by interrelated regulation mechanisms.

Financeostasis – the property of a person’s financial system to regulate its various bank accounts so as to maintain a constant debtor condition by means of multiple crises controlled by interrelated karmic mechanisms.

This has come to be known in my household as Karen’s First Law of Financial Equilibrium which states: “A set level of indebtedness must exist at all times. Thus, if the organism attempts to decrease debt levels, a crisis (or series of crises) will develop to bring the debt back to its former level.

This can be illustrated with the following Word Problem:
Ms. X’s Credit card debt is $2000. Ms.X receives a $2000 IRS refund which she uses to pay the credit card debt. What will occur next?

A. Ms. X will SAVE the money she previously used to pay credit card charges each month and in 1 year has $2000.00 in her savings account.

B. Ms. X is able to donate $150.00 per month to charity.

C. Ms. X experiences a number of household emergencies that magically add up to $2000 and must be charged on a credit card.

If you answered A or B, you are stupid. Those things never happen.
