At times, I feel the rich are worrying about everything they don’t need. And the poor are just happy with whatever they have.
The poor don’t need psychological counselling. They don’t suffer from mental health issues. They have a more significant battle – survival.
So, what does it mean?
Are the rich happy after having everything in sufficiency?
So what is essential to be satisfied? Contentment is, being occupied physically and mentally with chores and activities for good mental and physical health. The struggle of the poor towards survival with acceptance towards it is the greatest gift God has given them. The greed to have more with dissatisfaction about everything and the fear of losing even a bit of what they have is the curse the rich have.
And here we are, knowing all these things still accumulate everything – money, property, fame, reputation, finally to leave everything behind.
Then, why are the wiser ones also doing the same?
To give back to society, humanity, and all living beings, and to make a place in people’s hearts.
And the ones who are doing it only for themselves are haunted by discontentment for a lifetime.
