Sometimes, we might think that we need to be rich so we can buy and own anything we want. Are we enjoying happiness in life? Is happiness equal to how wealthy you are?
The richer you are, you want to pursuit more things in your life. You are unable to satisfy your desires. You are keep chasing and never know when to put a stop. Craving for more will never give you unconditional happiness and also peacefulness. You are running like mad, similar to the donkey keep chasing the carrot in front of him. You might not sure what are you chasing, you just want MORE!!!!
One of my realisation, you don’t need to be rich to say “I want nothing.” When you want nothing, only those stuffs you need not you want in life, you are free from invisible string which tied you up. You are richer than the rich person, as you don’t crave anything in life. Why not liberate yourself!
You don’t need much, only a place to sleep, 2 or 3 meals per day, clothes, transportation and other necessities to support your life.
Why are you keep running? What do you want?
Be silence and contemplate!
