A person with a satisfied soul sleeps better that the one with satisfied wallet. There was this beautiful sentence from a beautiful film Saath Saath, released in 1982. It says, a person should possess that much money with him as per his needs. Possessing more money than needed makes one greedy and selfish. First, ‘needs’ here mean the basic ones like food, clothing and shelter. Haven’t we grown up listening to this? That these are our basic needs. But as years pass by we start locking virtues like satisfaction, wisdom, patience one by one in a locker. Not only this we make sure to forget the location of this key.
Yes friends it is important to forget this key if you wish to lead a luxurious, care free, branded life.
When I started earning money
it made me independent and confident. It is fine to use education and experiences to earn money. But it is not fine to forget those who helped us in getting educated. People forget these aspects so conveniently and embark on a non returnable journey of pleasure, comforts and a lavish lifestyle. Money becomes the means of pleasure for such people. They forget that money is just a means to fulfil the basic needs of life.
My finger is not pointing towards the fact that people earn more than they need. The question is do they think of the ones actually in need even for a second? The answer is no. Of course there are handful ones who do. Thankfully. May be the world is still stable because of such selfless souls.
As they say, its now or never. If you are blessed with abundant money in your wallet, in your safe and are blessed with good fortune, please learn to give. Because when we give, we get. Make that grip on your wallet little loose so that the less fortunate ones smile too. When we humans learn this simple way of leading a peaceful life, there shall be more ambanis, tatas, birlas and bachhans in the society. (Kindly note the first letter of these names in small case is not a typing error). Ultimate myth many humans have is, that running towards spirituality helps in turning our troubled souls into peaceful spirits. But it is a ‘myth’. To attain peace, have courage to give it first to a disturbed soul. You will ultimately obtain yours.
Finally let us remember a beautiful thought, we came into this world with nothing and shall leave with . . . You know. A person with a satisfied soul sleeps better that the one with satisfied wallet. True, isn’t it?
