How many times do we feel or hear from others that life is getting to me. The perception of most people is that life is just too much, too complicated. The way we live our lives is the cause of all unhappiness, depression, drugs, suicide, divorces and even murder.
Modern society is all about money, because the law of modern society is that with money you buy your happiness, your love and your peace. But money is the root to a dysfunctional life. It is all about ego, image and materialistic possessions. We were taught to measure out self-worth according to the materialistic laws of society. From early in our lives were are conditioned to believe that we can only be happy if we are successful in our careers and earn a lot of money. And it never ends, the more you have, the more you want. Because with each materialistic goal you reach, the fulfillment is short lived and we move on to an even higher materialistic goal, for there’s always someone who’s got more than you.
The pursuit of happiness by accumulating materialistic possessions is the biggest lie of modern society. The belief is that the more you own, the happier you would be. That is so wrong! We all know the saying: “Money can’t buy you happiness”. So why devote your whole life to money? What does it really mean to have a fancy house our driving a luxury car? In our modern society nobody cares about what you have or who you are – everybody just cares about themselves. There is no community of loving people enjoying each other’s company and sharing inspiration for life. Every person is just out there for their own gain.
People are unhappy with their lives because they don’t have more money. This causes depression and pushes people to suicide and drugs. Most marriages end up in divorce because of money.
So the answer is so simple. Remove money as your driving force and goal in life.
The secret to a happiness, love and peace, is to find your purpose in life. Each one of us was put on earth to fulfill a task. And only when you release yourself from the day to day grind of making money and instead take time for yourself, you’ll never discover your purpose in life. Each one of us has a different purpose, our own purpose is defined by what suffering and pain we experienced in our lives. The secret is to grow and learn from your pain and to help others suffering the same pain. To encourage and help those people though their difficult times.
When you discover and live your purpose in life, you’ll experience heavenly love, peace and happiness. Your life will be complete, no more chasing after materialistic idols, but pursuing happiness by helping others, help other people to be happy and make them feel accepted by others. You can’t have what you don’t give. If you want love, show love to others and your life will be filled with love. If you want happiness, fill other’s lives with happiness and your life will overflow with happiness.
When you free yourself from the conditioning of modern society and the chase after money, you will experience the ultimate peace. You will be at peace with yourself, your circumstances and be at peace that you’ve made the world a better place by fulfilling your calling or purpose.
