The world is materialistic, and we sometimes get so caught up in chasing the next big thing that we forget about the basics.
Life’s necessities that we take for granted.
It sounds cliché, but it’s true, and if you’ve ever been in a position where the little things have disappeared in your pursuit for success, you’ll agree.
Yes, money can buy us loads of luxury items to make our lives more comfortable. But what does it mean when all you have is material wealth? Surely there’s more to life?
Humans are social creatures and need to be part of a greater community, serving a greater purpose. There needs to be a reason behind it all if we are to truly feel as though we’ve accomplished something.
“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
