Positive Story: How to Be Richer than a Zillionaire

Here is a story that could inspire you today…

Once there was a beggar who had no home, no car, not even sufficient food or education. He lived on whatever people could toss his way out of pity. He was tired of this struggle. He dreamed of being really rich, of having many millions one day..he spent a lot of time imagining himself to be rich and wealthy…And so with all the money he made begging, he also bought the lottery once a week to try his luck. And….one day he actually won the jackpot. He could not believe his luck, yes – he was a millionaire! It was all he had dreamed and imagined all the time… coming true finally. He bought a large house with a large car, the best designer clothes, went flying off to trips around the world, spent his days eating five star food and nights in drinking and partying in high profile clubs, living the high life..And then, within a few months he was back to having nothing. Yet he needed more…and more…to keep up his enormous appetite for all kinds of pleasures. He sold his house, went on rent again, until he had no money for even that, finally returning to where he began, homeless and poor, asking for money, benefits, charity…from others.

Once again, he had no house, no car, not even sufficient food or education. He lived on whatever people could toss his way out of pity. He was tired of this struggle. Then, one day, he decided to meditate. He just sat there wherever he was and closed his eyes, breathing, till he felt calm and peaceful, till his thoughts had all gone. Meditation was free, required no conditions at all….it could be done anytime, anyplace, by anyone, in any situation….So he did it. First for a few minutes…then for half an hour a day, then for an hour…Slowly he did it for longer periods of time and more often, almost everyday…. Wow!  This was better than any food he had eaten….It was better than sex, better than drugs, better than drinking, gambling…infact this felt better than anything ever. He slowly conquered his hunger, his discomfort, his fears, his insecurities…he slowly conquered his pain and sorrow, his needs and wants…. He was light, free, blissful, peaceful…..and he did not even realize how many days had gone by…he did not even realize how many people had gathered around him. Some of the wealthiest people in the world came by just to be in his presence, just to take his inspiration, to learn and meditate with him. They were ready to offer him all their wealth in return of the secret of his infinite peace. Yet, all he did was meditate, without being distracted. And that is why he was richer than the richest person on earth! He had more to give than anyone ever, and needed nothing….he had everything! Others followed his example and found their own inner peace…slowly, bit by bit, the world began to heal.

Normally people think charity is all about giving money, food and basic necessities to others. We imagine the world’s problems will be solved if money was distributed amongst all those who are poor. But would this really work? Would those who are poor become rich after receiving money? Or would they be poor again after a few days of spending the money up? In contrast, spirituality is something that TRULY makes us rich, really really rich! Because true wealth is not measured by how much money and property you own, or by how much financial charity you give to the world. True wealth is deep within you. Its a fountain of endless treasure that money can never buy. Material charity is at best a temporary relief until the person discovers this fountain of endless wealth within.

You might think that learning to make money, learning to work and earn, to invest wisely, to attract success, to build more and more wealth is an alternate answer to the problem of poverty. Sure it is…Yet, what would happen if the economy crashes, if markets fall, if there is famine, war or any other calamity? And…is learning how to make or attract money sufficient? Will it bring peace and happiness to all? More importantly, why are we here in this existence? Are we merely here in the world to learn how to survive and be materially successful? Perhaps not. We are all here in this world, not just to learn how to be  materially successful, but to learn how to find pure inner joy, which is infact our ONLY true and natural state. A person who finds this inner gold, or inner diamond is richer than the richest person in the entire universe!

It could be you!

Hope you enjoyed this story and felt inspired to be on the path that is true.

Top 3 Reasons Our Future Is Brighter than Most Sci-Fi Movies Depict

Are armies of monstrous aliens about to hunt us down and wage an interstellar war over our planet? Are we about to destroy the earth’s eco system and be doomed to die along with our planet? Is our apocalypse imminent or is there some hope for us humans after-all?

Here are a few points that could cheer you up (and they might be true as well if you introspect)

  1. We Are Evolving Spiritually: As a human civilisation we have come far. We were a baby civilisation once with little scientific awareness. As an adolescent world we learnt to master natural resources. As a maturing civilisation we are now beginning to foresee our trajectory and taking stock of the harm we did so far. Earth friendly spirituality is on the rise. The Age of Truth is within us. Our future science and technology could be far more spiritual and ethical than ever. We are indeed likely to improve our standards of eco-sensitive living soon. Let us forgive ourselves for our past mistakes and learn to move forward as a better and improved version of who we were.  Nothing is impossible so why not aim for the best and allow ourselves to come to harmony with nature. It is never too late to try.

  1. Aliens Could be More Evolved than us Spiritually and not just Technologically/ Materially: If there are indeed beings out there capable of finding us chances are they might be much more evolved than we are and perhaps a lot nicer than we are too. They might have already been observing us and accelerating our spiritual awareness for all we know. They might look and behave a lot more beautifully than what our science fiction movies have made them out to be. Their spiritual and magickal powers, and not just their gross technologies, could be highly developed. So let us not be surprised if they are not found wearing steely armours and commuting in metallic spaceships, but using spiritual skills such as teleportation, telepathy and invisibility instead. And most of all let us not imagine that they are necessarily coming for us to take us down.

  1. We Create Our Reality: There is no reason to take apocalyptic and doomsday theories as given just because of religious or scientific pessimism. Our reality is a projection of our minds and all our minds are interconnected. A few positive people can have a lot more power to heal and change the world as compared to billions of unconscious individuals who think negatively. Even if one of us is completely enlightened and believes in our best we can still see a positive future created in reality. So the next time someone paints a dark and dreary picture of the future of humanity or earth, why not use your mind to transform it into something phenomenally positive and believe in your power. You can do it!
