"God has gifted us a human body due to His compassionate nature. Reflect upon this repeatedly; reflect upon this fact thousands of times. We are suffering because we fail to contemplate properly. What are we thinking? "HOW SHOULD I SPEND MY TIME?" We are constantly planning on how to earn more wealth, constructing a house and leaving behind a large fortune for wife and kids. THERE SEEMS TO BE NO CONCERN ABOUT OUR OWN SPIRITUAL UPLIFTMENT. We must think about why we have come to this world. Our lives are wasted in planning how to make the body happy, and we work towards those plans. Still, we fail because our desires keep tormenting us. We may sleep on a bed of gold studded with diamonds, but we still suffer from inside. Happiness comes from within, not from external objects. So, there is no question of attaining happiness from the objects of the world. In fact, this world is full of stress and anxiety. The greater the wealth, beauty and talent one possesses, more are the worries."
