There is No Joy in Being Rich

There is no joy in being rich.

        The rich possessive of massive wealth are distinctively separate from the rest. From beginning to the end, the distinction among the affluence and the others has been spoken with emphasis by the sizing and number of their houses and transports conveyance. After all, the seeming anticipated outcome of assuming wealth may not be so much to get enjoyment from it as to flashing of proud display of it. ‘The unshakable belief clearly revealed to the mind is that there is no emotion of great happiness in being rich and affluent and widely known and esteemed unless the less blessed with privileges are showing extreme cupidity to you. The famous Greek playwright, Aeschylus, said “those that are not envied are not wholly happy”.

         Even though the religious leaders have always cautioned in contrast with this morally offensive and to some extent distasteful attribute, never was their warning more essential than at now when there are more affluent people than ever before in the very rich person whose material wealth is valued at more than a billion dollars club even in many countries which were earlier being considered as poor some few decades ago. There are large indefinite numbers of officials who are being under the prolonged and intense look of investigative agencies because of their gaudy outward showcased life styles with manner of living that reflects the person’s values and attitudes. Regardless of number of instances of economic and financial deceleration and corkscrewing price hikes, the palatial residence, furnishings and sumptuous apartments are being constructed for the rich along with malls, plazas and multiplexes for their amusement and super expressways for speedy trip for pleasure.

There is no joy in being rich

          It is not the closely similar elsewhere. In Italy, there has been increase of tax by factor of four of possession levies on eminent performance cars and in, Britain proposal for a new levy for the rich and affluent. The utmost and extreme analytical thinking with depth psychology , it is not the apparent exhibition of wealth , such s huge modern cement structure which gets tangible approval from person  who tries to please someone in order to gain a personal advantage   and time0servers by the manner in which it is being underutilized . For the quote from Francis Bacon, “riches are for spending and spending for honor and good actions”.

    I am rich…but it is unlikely i will every be wealthy. I think we put too much “value” in monetary gain and purchasable possessions, we forget how much we really have. I’m definitely not a Jones’s gal, but if I have my children, health, a home, and food…then I am as rich as can be.

    There is nothing wrong with having money, but many have found that it definitely cannot buy happiness. No matter if we have great wealth or little wealth, some of what we have should be used to help others.

    Very often money can’t buy happiness. People can be rich and sad at the same time.

    You need to have an adequate amount to provide for yourself and family. You need enough to live a comfortable life without worries. Love doesn’t survive on bread and water.

    It is not wealth that is the problem, but how people think about it and use it. Although some wealthy people are miserable human beings, there are others who are very generous and wholive good and happy lives.

    You are correct:)

  16. Posted September 14, 2012 at 7:03 am

    Immense wealth needs to be put into prospective; like anything else in life. Some wealthy people do help others and that’s admirable.
    The sad thing is when wealth over rules every aspect of a wealthy person’s life,(for some, not all) and material things have more meaning than life itself.
    These days, we need to have money to survive.
    Well expressed article, Thanks;0

    The biggest problem is that wealth is made off the many for the few.

  21. Posted September 14, 2012 at 10:02 pm

    Yes money can’t but happiness. The heart determine our happiness.

  22. Posted September 15, 2012 at 2:05 am

    it’s depend how we manage our wealth, if we do for something bad it would be bad too, but if we use it wisely I think no problem to be rich :)

  23. Posted September 15, 2012 at 6:28 am

    Depending on what is meant by the rich. If the concentration is money, I agree, but if the rich is defined as sharing, rich is joy excitement, but it seems very few people are willing to share when they are rich

  24. Posted September 15, 2012 at 12:35 pm

    The rich have a false sense of comfort, infact very few rich people sleep soundly or dream in their sleep sweetly!

  25. Posted September 17, 2012 at 8:00 am

    Great article and I agree. Great weath does not necessarily bring happiness.

  26. Posted September 17, 2012 at 10:59 pm

    Money does not bring happiness. You must be satisfied with who you are and who you have surrounding you. Without God there will be no happiness anyway.
