Can we buy happiness using our money?
HAPPINESS USING MONEY
With money you can buy comfortable bed
But hardly can buy sleep with sac full of money?
To sleep fitfully on the comfortable bed purchased
This sleep of ours comes when we are satiated
With what we have or do not have sometimes.
The amount of money earned
Through your perspiration
To fulfill your aspiration
Then only you have fitful sleep.
You can buy books with the money
You have in abundance
To acquire expertise in any field of choice
But understanding those books,
So purchased with money available
Takes time, energy and focused attention at all level
To comprehend those books.
You have money to purchase food items of choice
But your digestion remains disturbed always
What is purpose of those purchases
Which cannot help you
To maintain your good health and wellness
Despite medical help available in abundance
Here too, money cannot help much.
If you have sac full of money
Got by following corrupt practices
Will this money give you happiness
While others know the source of your money, so got
This can put us in disrepute
Rather than happiness ultimately.
Happiness surely happens
If we earn the money by sincere and honest means
With hard work by putting sincere efforts
That money is your reward
For the work done
You’ll get satiety and peace of mind in abundance.
Happiness is the state of mind. If our mind is satiated with what we have or do not have, we feel happy. On the other hand, more the lust for material possessions, more the stress. For appeasement of this lust, we resort to corrupt practices which truly speaking saps our mental balance. Losing mental balance results in inviting more stress related ailments.
True happiness comes to us when we have money enough to meet our day to day expenditures/requirements while living a simple life can give us happiness and peace of mind.
It has also been seen that if we have money, we should also meet somebody else’s needs. This giving will bring us goodwill not only from the person concerned but also our GOD.
This hard earned money if we spend on our children will bring us satiety and happiness doubtlessly and they will also follow the same way to earn their living earnestly. If experience is any guide, more the money we have, earned with questionable means, more the disappointing results ultimately.
