Miser


"The moment you become miserly you are closed to the basic phenomenon of life: expansion, sharing etc. The moment you start clinging to things, you have missed the target--.


Because things are not the target, you, your innermost being, is the target--


not a beautiful house, but a beautiful you; not much money, but a rich you; not many things,

but an open being, available to millions of things..."


What are your views?

    We all should live richly rather than die with riches!

  7. This is such a nice post as ever!We should not, as a matter of fact, keep clinging to material things. A beautiful inner self is what we actually need, not material possessions.Thanks for dropping by Surjit!Happy blogging!

  9. Having all material things cannot make one the richest of all rich; But clinging on to them will definitely make one the poorest of all poor.
    For true wealth, really, comes not with a dollar sign.

    Let's aspire together.

  17. Hi Surjit...

    Ohhh so true, and not so easy to embrace in this world that seems to instill in our minds we must have "stuff."

    It seems only through consciousness and awareness that we can let go of the world's message that happiness is external!

    Thank you for this gentle reminder... I appreciate it!

    Blessings,

  18. One of the greatest blessings that ever happened to me in my life was due to an accident my husband had. We lost almost everything we owned materially in this world. At the time,7 or 8 yrs. ago I thought my world had come to and end. We are by no means old. But, he was in his 50's and I in my mid 40's. How does 1 start over...it seemed impossible. yet, we made it through that journey and today are blessed in many ways. The best blessing is realizing that the material things we thought we owned were not in reality ours. They merely passed through our lives at that time. Our love,marriage,children, and grandchildren still exist. And, we are at a most wonderful time of life. Thank you surjit for always either enlightening us, teaching us, or, sometimes just reminding us is the greatest gift I recieve from you.
