What is Wealth

In order to get that full feeling of satisfaction, you need to find spiritual wealth. Spiritual wealth is about riches, but not money. What kinds of riches? The following Chinese proverb can shed some light on the difference between material and spiritual wealth:

“Money can buy you a house but not a home.
Money can buy you a bed but not sleep.
Money can buy you medicine but not health.
Money can buy you blood but not life.
Money can buy you a lover but not love.
Money can buy you amusements but not happiness.
Money can buy you books but not wisdom.
Money can buy you a clock but not more time.
Money can buy you companions but not real friends.
Money can buy you food but not an appetite.
Money can buy you a ring but not a marriage.”

Spiritual wealth is something much more significant than material wealth. It is the route to pure happiness. But how can a person cultivate a sense of spiritual wealth? It’s simple enough to become materially wealthy, but spiritual wealth is something different. It takes patience, self-discipline, and strength to become a spiritually wealthy person.

Thank you Inda.

Material wealth is nothing without spiritual wealth.

Buddha


To enjoy good health, to
bring true happiness to one’s family, to bring peace to all, one must
first discipline and control one’s own mind. If a man can control his
mind he can find the way to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue
will naturally come to him.



To be idle is a short
road to death and to be diligent is a way of life; foolish people are
idle, wise people are diligent.


Do not overrate what you
have received, nor envy others. He who envies others does not obtain
peace of mind.
Wealth is not limited to currency. Rich men and women are often miserable. Their bank accounts may be overflowing but their souls are impoverished. The poor individual who knows God as Savior has indescribable wealth compared to the rich one who rejects Him. Friendship, godly wisdom, and a happy home are invaluable.

A lot of people in America are still struggling in looking for the best highest paying jobs. They are looking for the best jobs in order to pay for their bills. The annual Forbes 400 list of the richest Americans discovered that the net worth of the super-rich has climbed in the last 12 months. The income gap continues to widen, as the middle class recedes. A cash advance can help you pay for things even if you aren’t rich. If you need help with your expenses, you should try availing a cash advance right now. You will be able to pay your monthly debts on time.
Some of the rich have several jobs, and many started with very unattractive jobs to pay for their bills. The wealthy are also giving money to hospitals and to needy people who are starving around the world. The wealthy are keeping our economy going, so let us not send them all to the far East where they will help to keep their economy going. We need some of the rich to stay here to help our economy. The rich also employ many people; if the companies close or leave, like in Thailand, there will be even less jobs. If all the rich leave, the poor will not really be any better off.
Machines have also taken over many jobs. The more we automate the less jobs there will be for people.

I get up at 5 every morning to get to my workplace, and I am very happy to have my job. I am also careful what I can afford to buy. I will not travel anywhere if I cannot afford it or spend money on things htat really don't allow me to pay my important bills etc.

I hope that everyone will find a job, and be appreciative of the employer; because if he closes shop or leaves, there will be no job.

And remember:

Friendship, godly wisdom, and a happy home are invaluable.

I think I missed this interesting post. Thank you Inda

Over the years, my definition has changed. Today, I view true wealth as a three legged stool. The first leg is financial security, the second is living with purpose and the third, is a healthy mind and spirit. The absence of any of the three renders the others incomplete. It takes them all to create real wealth.
