Wealth and Power

Studies show time and time again that if a person's needs are met then the amount of wealth they posssess is irrelevant to their degree of happiness. hence, people with very little are among the happiest people in the world.

Peace, contentment, security, confidence and sense-of-purpose are all elements necessary for a life of happiness. All of them are unrelated to money directly. Money has a secondary influence on these things.

The pursuit of wealth and power is not healthy or necessary to your degree of happiness. Meeting your basic economic needs is easy and rewarding when your primary goal is to embrace life and make a difference in the lives of others.


P: Perform acts of kindness. Make it a habit because that is the way you are, not just a random decision.

E: Embrace times of silence and solitude in natural places.

A: Avoid the unhealthy pursuit of wealth and power.

C: Consider the interests of others as equal or more important than your own.

E: Encourage non-violence in all of life and every situation.
