The world is materialistic, and we occasionally neglect the fundamentals in our pursuit of the newest and greatest things.
Things we need for life yet take for granted.
It may sound cliched, but it’s real, and you’ll agree if you’ve ever been in a situation where the simple things vanished in your quest for success.
Yes, we can purchase a ton of luxuries to improve our quality of life with money. But what does it imply if your only possessions are material ones? Surely there’s more to life?
Because we are social beings, we need to be a part of a larger group and work toward a greater good. If we want to actually feel like we’ve achieved something, there needs to be a purpose behind it all.
“These days, in our materialistic culture, many people are led to believe that money is the ultimate source of happiness. Consequently, when they don’t have enough of it, they feel let down. Therefore, it is important to let people know that they have the source of contentment and happiness within themselves and that it is related to nurturing our natural inner values.”– Dalai Lama
