Look into your soul and find the answers.
'Be the change you wish to see'.... Mahatma Ghandi
The rich only care about themselves, there was a conversation yesterday at work, about money and that it ( one side said it can , the other said it
can't) buys happiness, when I chimed in and said "Money only buys the ILLUSION of happiness".
If you don't have a lot of money you want more, then when you get more money , you still want more, then when you are the richest person inteh world
you are still wanting.
Those that covet money are empty and try to fill that void with gold, trinkets, cars and houses even people but they are still left wanting.
We no longer care about each other as we wish to be cared for by others but we are not so why bother caring at all?
Its a vicious cycle , everyone hates me , so I'll hate everyone else and that no one cares isn't MY problem, but it is.
I was talking to the wife last night and said that when someone says thank you , or even 'good morning' it makes you feel happier, but these days
all we are told to love is not each other, love only the money and the 'power' thats goes with it, so I say sure look into your souls and see one
simple truth that everyone should wake up and realise , from the poorest to the richest, from the weakest to the most powerful, and that truth is ,
can the riches you desire go WITH you when you die?, can you drive your cars in Heaven? spend that cash in the afterlife? cover yourself with that
gold you collected throughout your short life be taken with you in the hereafter?
Whats that I hear you say? no?
So why chase after something trivial and insubstantial?
According to most if not all of the religeons, and a lot MORE people in the world , they say LOVE is the universal power , one that you CAN take with
you. so why not chase after something that makes you happy for once instead of something that more often than not makes people miserable.
