Is it really dangerous to have everything?
The mistakenly accepted widespread conserved I’m having everything is dangerous is merely a slogan chanted by those who cannot imagine having even one thing. It’s just sour Grapes for them. For the modern man who inhabits the world in which the cruelty is pointed at the poor starving people, lacking one simple thing equals suffering. To get rid of this suffering one needs to possess whatever has been made for human beings. We have been born to have an enjoyable life with everything that can be found under the sun. Our short span of Life should not be spent in poverty and misery. We should never experience any shortages in our limited life expectancy. It is certainly advisable to lead a life of indulgence.
Hardly ever do you admire the idea of a knock on the neighbor’s door for health if you are short of a bob or two. You never ever accept the idea of living on the breadline. Nobody faces up to the fact that he will have a snowball’s chance in hell of having wealth and enjoyment. Everybody enjoys the peace and quiet of a night’s sleep. This never happens unless one suffers no worry of any kind. It is fascinating to find oneself in such a peaceful world, the world which is exclusively yours. When you have everything, it means that you have got the world. Isn’t it wonderful?
The idea that having everything is dangerous comes off because of the fallacy that one might not be capacious enough to adapt himself to all the corporeal blessings that he has. He might go astray since he gets totally involved in enjoyment. When we have everything, we get the ability to go with the world we have. it never happens all of a sudden. We gradually learn how to behave. How often does a person have to stand in front of a shop browsing into his pocket and not finding even two pennies rubbing together and have to get back home barehanded? How long does a man have to live from hand to mouth? How long does it have to eat like a sparrow since he is paid chicken-feed? And how long does a wishful teenager have to wear hand-me-downs? Have you ever thought about the children and even adults in some African countries who are always in their birthday suit? Imagine what a joyful life they would have if they had a piece of cloth to cover their bodies. How do you feel when you come here a millionaire living in his sumptuous mansion with a poverty-stricken man languishes in a party and his austere humble abode? These questions and others likewise can easily be answered if that person does have whatever he desires and wishes to have in his life.
It sounds ridiculous to think that earning a living with hardship is sheer happiness since you gain what you have worked for. When you carry the heavy burden of a life in bringing home the bacon and your strength melts away, then you wish not to suffer because of the things you do not have. it’s full of joy to look around and see that you are never worried about anything in your personal life. For every person who has once experienced poverty and subsequently has led a dog’s life, the only meaningful ambition can be the desire to have whatever you can imagine. Nobody would ever abhor having a golden touch. Isn’t it really interesting to win the staff of life without any hardship to suffer?
All in all, it is noteworthy to confess that the world in which we reside is a world of intense competition. If you do not get a move on you will certainly have to kill yourself to catch up with the people who were once miles away behind you. In this competitive world, one needs to have everything so that he might not suffer any financial hardships. As a rule of thumb, if you have things you want, you won’t feel the need to devise any mysterious schemes to surpass the others. We develop jealousy since we do not possess the things the others do. If we possessed, there would remain no reason to envy the others and their properties. By the way, never allow your infinite wealth to make you behave arrogantly. Opera Winfrey, the multi-billionaire American citizen, has stayed the same with no changes in her character. Her famous quote is conclusive proof of our claim. She says,” though I am grateful for the blessings of wealth, it has not changed who I am. My feet are still on the ground. I’m just wearing better shoes.”
