emanates from money as long as we perceive money as an end goal
of everything. Permanent happiness (bliss) emanates when one stops
running after money realizing that money is only the means to an
end... never an end in itself!
every spiritual seeker money carries no value at all. That does not mean money
loses its value. The analogy is simple... every serious seeker of spirituality
does not run after the fruits of karma and remains in eternal happiness (bliss)
all the time.
karma is the real essence of life... it is performing karma the
Nishakama karma way that a human being enjoys absolute bliss. The
experience of bliss was never meant for the materialist. Those burdened
with wanton desires are always hungry for materialistic riches in
life. Such people enjoy happiness in short phases... that is never
experience of bliss can be permanent when one reaches the stage of Nirvikalpa
Samadhi... happiness is by nature ephemeral. If we have a good bank balance...
we feel happy. The moment the balance reduces considerably... we feel worn out.
buys material comforts. Human beings drenched in thoughts of materialistic nature
feel elated when bombarded with loads of money. We fail to realize that it is
not physical possessions we carry to the next world... it is the Punya (positive
merits) earned that carry forward to next life.
single possession in this would be left behind at the time of death... why run
after happiness that is ephemeral by nature.
