There are important moments in everyone’s life when all material things are of little value when compared to the mental and spiritual joy of detachment from worldly things…
When searching for happiness, are you searching in all the right or the wrong places?
Modern life is a struggle – a struggle to gain monetary rewards, comfort and luxury. Instead of bringing happiness, this lifestyle brings anxieties and stress. There are important moments in everyone’s life when all material things are of little value when compared to the mental and spiritual joy of detachment from worldly things.
However wealth and poverty, happiness and misery are all relative terms.
Wealth is a blessing if rightly and wisely used, but part of the tragedy of the poor is their selfish desire for material things. If their cravings are not fulfilled they live with resentment. The tragedy of the rich is their inability to rise above their wealth. They cling to their wealth foolishly. Hence happiness is not found in either case, with the poor or the rich.
We should learn to be contented and happy with what little we have which has been bestowed on us. Learn to be happy and content with our present state of being and staying humble. Here you will find true peace no matter what in any situation.
NAMASTE JULES X
