What is more valuable than wealth?
More valuable than wealth are:
- Peace of Mind
- First: your life is meaningless! Who, that has never Loved or been loved, is truly wealthy ?!
- Second: you can't enjoy your wealth! Because doesn't matter how much money you have... if you will end up not being able to spend it right ?!
- Third: you can't live in peace! What is the meaning of a huge some of money, when you can't sleep well...? or when you are constantly troubled and worried without rest ?! You don't actually live or even enjoy it... so what for ?
Most people are truly wealthy because they have the 3 above!!!
Unfortunately many don't realize that...
Hope it helped! And that you find your wealth!!!
"Health is the greatest gift, contentment the greatest wealth, faithfulness the best relationship." Buddha
What's more valuable than wealth is whom you spend it on.
Since they're worthy of the wealth you earn with all the hardwork and dedication, speaks enough about their value.
To speak of it, wealth's value is limited monetarily. It can only facilitate things that can make you happy. But why is that most billionaires are actually depressed and distressed with broken marriages? Mostly because they mistake wealth to be more valuable than the person whom they were earning money for.
It's just paper and metal.
Valuable are those smiles and hugs.
Current events in Brazil brought to my attention a simple proof that time or freedom are worth more than mundane wealth.
You see, Brazilian police and public prosecutors are unravelling an unbelievable web of corruption and bringing out solid evidence of crimes committed by politicians, entrepreneurs and middlemen.
Faced with unequivocal evidence, and knowing the prosecutors or the police won't be bribed and that the judges are not in a position to ignore all facts and declare them not guilty or, alternatively, sentence them to shot terms in prison, the great majority of the people involved is trying to strike a deal with the public attorneys to lessen or avoid time in jail.
They are throwing away heaps of money stashed abroad or in legitimate businesses.
If they kept quiet, they would probably lose some of it, but not all, because the Government is not capable, right now, to track every bank account abroad, nor to prove that some enterprises were financed by money laundering. I know tons of big cases where the investigators never found the money (back when law forbade deals).
These crininals nevertheless strike deal after deal in order to reduce time in jail.
Time and freedom are obviously much more valuable assets.
I think most of us would throw money away to have more time, if we were sure that giving up wealth would lead to being alive longer or free.
Wealth can comfort your life, it can enhance your life's experience. But, ultimately, your life is a gift. It's a moment, it holds significance to you and only you. It's full of experiences and chances and opportunities, you get to make your mark whilst you're here. You get the chance to help others. There's so much to life. Wealth can not comprehend it.
Your own soul. Here the words of Christ.
"What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul?" Mark 8:36
