45. Possessions and Happiness
Most people misunderstand that the possession of a lot of money can makes our life most happy.
Mohammad Reza Shah Pahlevi, the king of the Iran has accumulated lots of money as equivalent to three years budget of Korea. But he was never been happy, because he was exiled as president from his country. He had to wear a wig, attach or take off his false mustache and change his eye color a lot and also hide himself here and there during that time. Eventually, he died of cancer miserably, in one of the hospitals in Chicago, after pm operation without paying for it. If he could change his mind and swap his possession for a status of innocence, then he might have been a respectable and delighted president. I'd like to say, if you throw yourself around like a possession, it may never happen the way you want things to happen.
“A man's life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions." (Luke 12:15)”
