At that very moment I realized that I was still into my simple shoes and this was just an imagination! I felt glad that rather than being on the top of the mountain of gold I was standing contented on the mountain of happiness😊😊
The world revolves around money but I never believed in this. I was a person who believed in simple living. I always felt money could neither give us happiness nor strong relationships. In fact I had always seen materialistic people leading meaningless lives with no contentment.
But as I saw more of life, I realized it is money which governs power shifts and it’s ultimately money that gives you an upper hand in relationships. However, people who crave for power found happiness in money.
When my need for power grew, at one point of time I felt, I had wasted my life underestimating the importance of money. I was almost convinced that I had to take another birth if I wanted to rebuild my life the way I wished to.
My thoughts took a flight in my imagination and I could see myself in the new shoes of an imaginary life where I was earning a lot of money…But the next moment I felt love slipping out of my powerful hands. I could see people around me respecting me for the money and power I had but not for the way I was as a person. But there was no trace of happiness!! I could not see any genuine well wisher around. I was on the top of the mountain of gold and to reach there I had stamped under my feet, my emotions and ethics. I had won no hearts and treasured no happy moments.
