My Dear Loved Ones,
I’ve been pondering on this statement since my neighbor once casually made this comment.
Let me step back a bit to go back to our childhood when all that was drilled and expected of us was to get good grades and score the highest marks. But how many of our classmates who are first rank holders are living their dream life?
Similarly, now the expectation we have is to be rich. Everyone as if hypnotized by the world is in the rat race to hoard. Even the unborn grain, unmined gold is being auctioned (options trading) in the hope that someone will eventually get rich!
The great Disillusionment
Many think that having wealth will set them free, but the truth is that the more you have the more is the pressure from so many agencies to take it away. First, the peasant wanted wealth, once he got it and became the king, he has to build an empire to safeguard his treasures and torment his citizens with taxes and invade other kingdoms to feed his soldiers.
I am not a believer of “poverty is a virtue,” I feel that once you have your basic needs taken care of, life should be spent meaningfully.
I would like to know what you think.
