money can never bring happiness in your life
it can bring physical comforts or luxury in life but that is not happiness.
yes, if you become crazy about earning money,
then money also has the potential of take away little happiness which you have in life.
money can bring many things in your life – good as well as bad
it all depends upon your intelligence or stupidity.
if you are a intelligent person
and by intelligent, i mean a man of awareness or meditation
then money can bring lot of physical comfort in your life
you can have better standard of lifestyle
it will solve many of your problems related with mundane life
so money does good service to a intelligent person
and its good to have money, if you are intelligent
but mind it, for an intelligent person also
money is not bringing any kind of happiness in his life
it is only bringing physical comfort and better lifestyle
and is giving him more option to choose
e.g. instead of travelling by bus he can travel in his car
happiness is an inner quality and is uncaused by outside circumstances
happiness does not depend upon your beauty, richness, fame or power
happiness you cannot purchase with your money… happiness comes from within.
whenever you are in harmony with your energy, you are happy.
if you are looking for happiness or contentment
then don’t chase money, instead find the ways of doing things
which brings contentment in you… which brings harmony within you.
it could be cooking, painting, dancing, singing or something else
it also depends upon the way you do things
you can do a particular thing in a relaxed and creative way
or you can do the same thing in a hurried and in a tense mood
it all depend upon you… you create your happiness or unhappiness
it has nothing to do with your money.
now take the case of a stupid person and slavery of money
the stupid person waste his time and entire life to make money
hoping that one day he will rest and enjoy the fruit of his hard work
but that day never comes as he has inculcated the habit of working and working.
even if he is given the opportunity to rest, he won’t
because now he cannot spend his hard earned money.
he will cling to the money as he has wasted his whole life in making that money
and now money has become more important than his life.
whenever someone makes money by ignoring his soul
than money becomes more important than the person life.
because it has become a habit with him to give first priority to money than life.
he has ignored his health, friends, relatives, likes and dislikes for making money.
in short, he has sacrificed much for making money.
and now how can he spend that money for which he has shed his blood ???
for such a person, money becomes his beloved and he becomes the slave
and his whole life goes waste in accumulating more and more money.
it is good to have money
but never give more importance to money than to your own inner happiness.
never sacrifice your inner creativity, relationships, youth or hobby
for making money.
such type of money which comes by ignoring your soul is not going to help you
and instead it will be a burden on your heart.
have a balance in life… make money but not at the cost of your life.
the moral of the post is
money can bring physical comfort in your life but never happiness.
if money can bring happiness than bill gates should be the happiest person in world.
make sure that while making money
you don’t lose your mental peace and inner contentment.
always stay above money… don’t cling to money.
let it be your friend to give you physical comfort.
and please don’t expect more from money.
