Material Wealth and Inner Happiness. Is this a marriage that will last?

wp-1481358319730.png

I sit, I ponder, I walk, I wonder.

I wonder, I wonder, I wonder, what is it all about?

I wonder, why I chase material wealth?

Should I not be chasing and accumulating internal wealth?

Wealth of character and integrity.

We are immortal Souls/Spirit, whose natural nature is Peace, Love, Purity, Wisdom and Joy.

We suffer from Anger, Lust, Greed, Attachment and Ego – (i.e. Algae).  Algae is the illusion, that clouds and covers my true nature.

My true nature of Purity, Peace, Love, Wisdom, and Joy.

The Algae stops me from being the diamond that I am and I stops me from being happy.

It makes me want to gain more and more material objects to fill the empty void in me.

The void in me craves, simplicity, truth, happiness and peace.

Yet, instead of filling the void with peace, happiness and inner stability, I buy material objects and, I chase money.

Do I ever sit still and ask myself?  What am I chasing?  Will these material/ perishable goods that I chase, that give me temporary happiness, give me inner peace?  Will they enhance me and my character?

We are immortal souls.

What will I, the soul, take  to my next human birth?

Material wealth is need for this birth, but it has no value in my next birth!

When the soul/spirit leaves this body, it doesn’t even take this body with it!

Therefore, I soul, will not take all the material wealth I have gathered, when I leave this body. It will be left behind!

However, I, the soul will take my habits, my karma and my character.

The question is, then, what have I, the soul filled my character with?  Do I have a stack of good karma or?  What are my habits?

Why am I chasing all these material object that I won’t take with me to my next birth?

Yes, money is necessary for this birth, and we want to live well and comfortably.

But, in chasing all this material stuff, and accumulating all this stuff; what is happening to I, the Soul?

The soul’s original nature/values are Peace, Purity, Love, Wisdom, Joy, compassion.    In all this chasing material stuff, in being busy, in comparing, in trying ‘to keep up with the Jones’, what is happening to I, the Soul?

The emptiness void becomes as chasm, deeper than the deepest ocean.

I am so empty, I am running on empty.

No amount of material stuff will give me everlasting inner peace and happiness.    Material stuff is a burden on I, the soul.  It stops me from flying free.  Have what you need to live, but not excess.

Surely, I need to stop chasing  material STUFF and start accumulating PEACE?

Let me conclude with a few thoughts on  the quest of inner peace: – let me:-

Learn to be grateful for all I  have in my life.  Reduce my desires for more stuff.  Live a simple but characterful life.   Meditate and connect with I, the Soul and the Divine soul.  Immerse myself in living an authentic life of integrity and returning to my true nature.   Material stuff, is just stuff.  This body is just a vehicle for I, the soul.   None of ‘this STUFF’ will help me in this life or my next birth.    This stuff is temporary, and it only gives me temporary happiness.   I, the Soul am simple, true, and pure.  This stuff is clutter, the ‘algae’ has made be blind and I sink in the quicksand of desires.  Desires that never end.    Peace means being true to who I am, content,  striving for the best character in myself.  Connecting with I, the Soul and the Divine.

    1. Dear Kamal, Thank you so much for your beautiful comment. My heart has a warm feeling, especially as I was quite nervous to post this post. Wasn’t sure how well it would go down. I have three beautiful comments , 2 on word press and one share on facebook – that makes me feel – it was a good idea to post this.

      Thank you always for your generous words and for always reading and commenting on my blog – it means a great deal to me.
      Regards Bella

  2. You hooked me right away with all the lovely, thoughtful sayings/quotes. You share your soul in your writing. Your reminders about clutter in our lives not traveling with us is well said. I battle clutter far too much and know it’s a waste of precious time to move it around from place to place in the name of organization. How much more time I’d have with less to move. I pray for a generous heart and a place to give things to that are a good fit. It’s hard to know what is best. I even write about it on my blog. I will continue to work on this materialism and get better all the time. Thanks for writing. I look forward to following you.

  3. You, my dear friend, are full of wisdom and you are enriched beyond what your eyes can see. Material wealth can never fill holes of happiness, peace, beauty in us. They can buy temporary satisfaction but the richest gains come from the simplicity of life, living fully and appreciating the moments that we are given. Beautiful post.
