Money can buy everything ?

iyANphMoney can buy everything…more often and more we all must have heard this quote from some one or the other. A sentence that probably has screwed many people’s lives or even made people live miserably. With this quote in mind, many are on their journey to make hell lot of money, sacrificing their present, sacrificing their time, sacrificing many tangible, non-tangible beautiful stuff in life, to make hell lot of money. There is nothing wrong in making a lot of money – but believing that money can buy everything has made many people go crooked over years and years now.

This is certainly a myth or misconception, if I may say, and does not hold any good. Neither it has ever been nor will it ever be. Money was introduced as a means for trade – pure trade. There is various understanding of money from historical data – but certainly it is not something that could buy everything. You certainly cannot trade love, nor happiness, peace or even a feeling – in true sense. If you say, buying sex is buying love, then the whole understanding of love is wrong. Similarly people talk about happiness in luxury, which again is a temporary trigger of emotions – yes just that. Luxury doesn’t bring happiness in one’s life. It does bring satisfaction due to fulfillment of a want, it does bring in excitement about new expensive stuffs, it does create a feeling of richness
and power, it might bring in more comfort – but does that really bottom down to happiness?? Is sleeping on a diamond embedded bed happiness ? Is riding/driving the most expensive vehicle happiness? Is having a filthy bank balance happiness ? Is money happiness? These answers needs to be sorted by you.

In contrast everything that gives happiness, love and peace is NOT at all dependant on money. Money is just a medium to buy things. We have made it too important in our life, way too important. People kill for money today. Is someone’s life worth any rupee or dollars? Indeed not!! But someone somewhere believes money can buy everything and this idea only brings misery and trouble. Nobody is ready for any monetary loss, or I would say 99% of the crowd will fall off their feet thinking of losing money. The attachment with money has become pretty intense. Money comes and goes- this should not hamper one’s sleep/relationship/happiness or even peace. But this is exactly what is happening. And if you further drill down the last 2 lines – the issue is more explosive because of the present lifestyle people are living- most people.

“Money can buy a big house, but not a home. Money can buy a high position, but not  respect. Money even can buy a person, but not love. In conclusion, money is an indispensable part in our life but it is not everything “-even Google showed this (This was a result of my search for a picture to add to my article – “Money can buy anything” 🙂 )

Most people who are rich and happy- are the ones who don’t bother much about money- rather they are more focused to more important things than money. Interestingly money follows them!!

Unfortunately we are living in a system today that shouts from all corners- making us realize that all those luxuries/things that are not important in our life is so much important to us- to buy- and everything costs $$$$ ONLY !!!!

  1. Yes we do need money to buy us the things we think we want, but also the things we do really need like a house, a good car or even a comfy coat to keep away the cold. Yes money can get us the best doctor but cannot buy us health. Not yet anyway lets see where they head in the future with that.:-) And money can buy us (temporary) happiness but not contentment which I think is the real secret to a blissful life. IMO. Only our mind can do that.
