We give our power to external means by linking our happiness to things and people. Look at nature, and you’ll find that many valuable essentials for life are available free of cost.
Wake up early in the morning. Stand facing the Sun and witness the beauty of the sunrise. Watch and feel the first rays falling on your shoulders. The cool breeze on your face and the melodious song of birds chirping in the morning; can you purchase this experience with money?
For half an hour, sit on a stone near the bank of a river and watch the river flow. I don’t think it’s boring, given you can admire a natural creation that can teach one of the biggest lessons of life- Flow.
Take a trip to nearby woods and witness the natural life there. Every creature is doing its work without disturbing others. You may say they exist merely for survival, but that doesn’t make them any less than you and me. They’re living natural lives without interpretation of anything.
Look at the trees standing still. They’re older than you and me but fresh and alive. The flowers and the birds tell us a different life story if we’re willing to listen to them.
In the lap of Nature, we lose the corruption within us. We return to our original nature as of a child. That’s why we feel at home.
Those are the moments we all have lived, and we want to be there most of the time, but fear is the obstacle. We don’t want to set aside our pride in money, power, and domination. That’s why we live miserable life.
Our obsession with money is the root cause of our degradation. We know how to earn but don’t know how to spend our time concerning our cash. We abuse our hard-earned money by spending it lavishly.
With fake images and show-offs, we’ve become obsessed consumers. We suffer from obesity but don’t stop to eat. Our condition is of a snake who eats its tail.
I’m not forcing you to believe anything. Experience it on your own and then decide whether you need- money or time?
Ask yourself, “Do I need more money to live with prosperity or more time to think and manage what I already have in abundance- my time.”
