life…

…….a sensation of happiness & balance?….. what defines that balance…we are in a world of constant change…… we strive at all times to be able to achieve “wealth”……and the definition of this wealth is so divers… so triggered ……

weal•th  |welθ| an abundance of valuable possessions or money : he used his wealth to bribe officials.• the state of being rich; material prosperity : some people buy boats and cars to display their wealth.• plentiful supplies of a particular resource : the country’s mineral wealth.• [in sing. ] a plentiful supply of a particular desirable thing : the tables and maps contain a wealth of information.• archaic well-being; prosperity. ORIGIN Middle English welthe, from well 1 or weal 2 , on the pattern of health.

weal 2  formal that which is best for someone or something : ORIGIN Old English wela [wealth, well-being] ; related to well.

….in our parts of the world we have a tendency to measure wealth through our financial situation…having a better car than the neighbor ….. where as in other places wealth is measured through finding peace…..family….happiness…..having water….a home…. food….surviving…..

the western world as we know it.. is fortunately layered and there are those that fight and believe ….and make a difference through challenging society… but still we have a lot to learn [fortunately]…..my concern is more the process of achieving happiness and wealth …… when we really have nothing to fight for [except having a better car than the neighbor!!] & that skews our perceptions, our values….how we see the world…….. it is not that we need disasters at all time, but we need to see those that are already there, globally…  seeing understanding & trying to find solutions strengthens and challenges the soul & mind….  we need to be challenged to evolve… develope….learn…. see … experience…  & for the next generations….so that we are able to stretch beyond our limits… and take part of the global issues….. using our knowledge to help.. understand & develop on a global level… not the make of our next car……[or the neighbors]
