I am not a Christian, but I would rather have a religious vocation.
Happiness is a state of mind, and as such, it comes FROM within our mind.
And that is the basis of all religions . that you have to look inside for your connection with God if you want to be happy.
And that material things may be a source of temporary distraction from our unhappiness, but are not where we find happiness.
There is NOTHING more important in life than our inward journey to wholeness, peace and well-being.
And the more we achieve this, the kinder and more compassionate we are to others. So everyone benefits.
“Wealth & fame amplifies whatever is underneath. If you are unhappy, it makes you more unhappy. If you are insecure, it makes you more insecure. This is why so many people start to abuse drugs and become addicted once they become rich.
If you are secure and at peace inside, wealth turns you into a philanthropist.
In a way, wealth and fame are like marriage. None of these will make you happy unless you are already happy. And if you are not happy, they make you even unhappier.”
