How much money would it take for you to consider yourself rich?
$10,000, $1 million or some people may say $1 billion?
But in truth, one does not feel wealthy until he possesses that
amount - and even then, he will want even more - it is a
never-ending materialistic goal.
The same applies not only to money but also to age. Therefore,
what age do you wish to live to? 100 years? 70 years? Do you
want to live to the world's average lifespan age or do you wish
to surpass and create a world's record?
These materialistic desires and goals are never ending.
In this physical world, nothing exists forever. Your
attachments to these physical things exist only as long as they
last - once it is gone or broken, the energy you directed
towards those objects and the attachments to those objects can
no longer exist.
This also pertains to love between man and woman - if one
chooses one's mate based strictly on the basis of looks, wealth
or age, the relationship will flourish as long as those
attributes hold. However, as those attributes fade or disappear,
so too shall that love fade unless the love is based on an
unconditional love. Unconditional love is beyond materialistic
and superficial attractions. It is love on a soul level and is
based on a true heartfelt appreciation of another soul's

may think being wealthy is better and a long life is
However, we do not want it misunderstood that material wealth
will not always bring you happiness. Many people believe that by
attaining riches and wealth, that it will automatically bring
happiness. But as statistics show in America, the suicide rates
are highest among the wealthy, proving that material wealth is
not necessarily proportional to your happiness quotient.
There is a way to make wealth and happiness
A wealthy person may share his riches among many, an elderly
person may share his many life experiences and profound
knowledge to the younger generation, a happily married couple
may show by example how to have a harmonious and balanced life,
a successful businessman can instill a dream in others and
contribute to society through his business acumen.
How you are going to use the materials given to you is the
main point of this. By using the materials given to you to use
for the benefit of others will result in your realization that
you are able to make a difference for the better (confirmation
of your true power: the power which comes from your true self in
the higher dimension). It will lead to raising your personal
spiritual level as well.
