Richly Rich


With inventions touching us everywhere we humans have centered our lives across materialistic attainment. We have made ourselves to believe that happiness quotient in life is directly proportional to monetary & material benefits. We crave for things as if its the only purpose we are here for. Our LIFE is not granted to splurge on material pleasures of this world. In fact they were only created to simplify matters in life & not conquer them.
Owing to the above traits I think there are two kinds of people in this world.
The Richly Rich & The Poorly Rich
Both have same means & resource to lead LIFE but still they are different due to their perception towards LIFE.
Richly Rich are those who find joy in the pettiest of things. They live every moment happily with positivity in their stride. Poorly Rich are those who will grudge & complaint for what they do not have & will fail to realize what they already possess.
Richly rich will always notice stars in darkness whereas Poorly Rich will cry for the dark.
Picture this,
Richly Rich : " I feel like making my mother feel special. Wow Diamonds will rock. But I cannot afford it right now.....Let's gift her a fancy watch"
Poorly Rich : " I feel like making my mother feel special. Wow Diamonds will rock. But I cannot afford it right now.....I never have enough money to fulfill all my plans....fine then I should wait for sometime later."

Got the difference .....its only perception. A same thing but two different ways to view it.
So what category you fall in? Richly Rich or Poorly Rich.
If its the latter then it's still time to mend ways & trudge on the road to glory.
But does this mean we should stop aiming for higher goals in life? In fact such an approach will hinder our growth. The answer is NO....we should not stop setting higher goals.
It's only that while we strive & continue to meet our higher desires we should not forget to halt each day & rejoice the existing ones.
This is the secret of happy living. Oops it's no more a secret. I have disclosed it.
Nevertheless we should all learn to be Richly Rich.
After all LIFE is too precious. Lets make it simple. Break the complexes & LIVE the today, RICHLY.

Hi Arunima,
A very Nice and thoughtful post :).
-We all would agree to the fact that there have been a few instances with all of us, where we feel we behaved like a 'poorly rich'!!! Despite of knowing the fact there is happiness hidden in the "richly rich" approach to life, why do we sometimes tend to start grudging for what we have or chasing the material things which are far from us" or I should rather say that why do we tend to behave like a 'poorly rich'? We may blame the feeling discontentment or desiring more than what one have, for this. But then, being contented with what we have a solution for this?" Can we say that a person who is contented would always be a richly rich person? . Would he always be truly happy?". I think this is true but only partly. There is a difference between truly happiness and contentment. Truly happiness comes with the presence of both the feelings in life: contentment and discontentment, strange na :). As suggested by Arunima, and I also believe that we should be contented with the material things in life, but at the same time we should never be contented with our goals and achievements in life. Being contented with these would mean that we are done with these as these have either been achieved or forgotten and there are no more goals to achieve. It would hamper our success and be more destructive than productive..

Make you feel happiness is just a state of feeling already with you and you were in search somewhere outside...
