लोभ को त्याग कर ही सुखी जीवन की प्राप्ति होती है 

“ Greed is a bottomless pit which exhausts the person in an endless effort to satisfy the need without ever reaching satisfaction ”

Do you respect a beggar equal to respect you give to a rich man? If it is so you do not need to read this further or else you must.

In today’s world, people are evaluated only on the basis of their possessions and status. A person’s worth in society is decided on the basis of how much he or she owns. Apart from his physical wealth, his power and influence become important. Success in life is related to ownership of assets and extent of influence.

In reality, nothing can be more damaging to a person’s real success in the world than possessions and status. The desire to possess rises from comparison and jealousy. If your neighbor buys a new refrigerator your house gets warmer. From early childhood we are conditioned to desire what others have.

When we are not able to possess something, we are unhappy and consider it a failure. We become happy when we do acquire what we want. This happiness, however, lasts for a brief period. It lasts till we find one more thing to acquire. Happiness seems to be in the acquisition, in the chase rather than through enjoyment of what we have.

Till you get something you want, it looks as big as a mountain. Once you get it, the same thing becomes the size of a mustard seed!

Stop wanting to acquire more and more. Enjoy what you have. Enjoy what you have; there is no need to renounce what you already possess. Renounce only what you do not have. Renounce your fantasies. That is the gateway to Bliss.
