Happiness and Materialism

"Try doing something for someone"- The best cure for fear

"You cannot have two opposing sets of thoughts in your mind at one and the same time"

"You can deceive some of the people all the time and all the people some of the time, but you cannot deceive all of the people all of the time" - Abrahan Lincoln

Many people believe they can slove all their problem if only they have money..
But they fail to realise that money cannot solve all their problems..

Many people never learn this and all they do their whole life is to collect money and "machines/ gadgets"..
When they have all this, they still say "not enough", "i want more", " i want this, i wan that"..
The more they want in life, the more they are not happy and content...

"Say no to this is YOURS and that is MINE,
Just say, this came to ME and that came to YOU,
So we may not regret the fading shine,
Of all the glorious thing that ceased to be" - Dr.K.Sri Dham

Wealth is used to help others..
Use what you need...
Don't keep collecting, because you will be worried about when and who is going to ROB or KIDNAP you because of your wealth..

"Your property will remail when you die. Your friends and relatives will follow you up to your grave. But only the good and bad actions you have done during you lifetime will follow you beyond the grave"

Many things that we expect will give us happiness and contentment wil eventually disappoint us when we get them.
It is so good to have a lot of money, but when they bring us worry (like said above) we tend to get stressed and may lead to foolishness.

"Your wealth can decorate you house but not YOU,
Only your own virtue can decorate YOU.
Your dress can decorate your body but not YOU,
Only your good conduct can decorate YOU."

"Blesses are they who earn their living wihtout harming others. Happiness is a perfume you cannot pour on others without getting a few drops on yourself" - Buddha

You may not change the world, but you are able to change your heart to find happiness.

"If we want to find happiness, let us stop thinking about gratitude and ingratitude and give for the inner joy of giving. Ingratitude is natural like weeds. Gratitude is like a rose, it has to be fed, watered and cultivated and loved and protected" - Dale Carnegie
