The INNER and the OUTER wealth – A Moral Story

The topic “inner and the outer wealth” reminds of an old Indian story. Once there lived a saint called Kanad (कणाद) in the empire of a generous king. The saint was called ‘Kanad’ by the people of his village as he fed himself by picking up the leftover grains from the crop-fields after the crops were cut. He was least bothered of what he has and what not, whether he has eater well or not. Saint focused on his inner journey and lived a happy, healthy and satisfactory life.

The king of the empire came to know about the shortage of resources for the saint and being generous, he sent his minister with a lot of wealth and food resources for him. But the saint refused to take anything and said to the minister “I don’t need it. Please distribute this wealth to people who really need it”.

The king tried several times by one way or the other to give something to the saint but of no use. Even once the king went himself but again the saint refused to take anything. The saint went on living the same way by picking grains from farmers field and live a blissful life.

The king got very confused. He could see that the saint has nothing, and still he is not ready to take anything from anyone. He shared his confusion with his queen. The queen was wise and intelligent. She told the king “ You have made a big mistake by thinking that the saint is in need. You should go to the saint not to give anything but to receive knowledge”. The one who has the inner wealth is the only one who has the ability to abandon the outer wealth. The king realized what the queen said and went back to the saint to get knowledge.

Moral of the Story:

Inner wealth is subtle & stable while outer wealth is unstable & physical. The attachment to the outer wealth induces unknown fear. And fear is one of the cause of misery. Outer wealth is lost when one dies while inner wealth stays forever.
Because our soul is eternal, it always craves for something that is stable and long-lasting. The wisdom, intuition and knowledge are few attributes which are long-lasting and eternal. The soul can carry this inner wealth with itself once it leaves the physical body. A person who realizes the importance of inner wealth will change the focus of life towards it and loosen its grip on the accumulation of outer wealth. Only one of the two can remain in the foreground and the other will go into the background.

Implementation of the Moral:

If a moral cannot be brought into practice, it is of no use. Let’s see how we can bring this moral into our lives:

#1 Develop Intuition

Intuition is one of the inner wealth which we can grow and sharpen consistently. It is our first guiding voice which is the true voice. It guides us to the best choice we should make while taking a decision with respect to the time and situation. We should always rely on the first voice of our heart. Once a person grows the habit to listen to one’s intuition, the voice will grow stronger and guide to the purpose of one’s life. A person who listens to his/her intuition always lives a happy and prosperous life as the intuition is the voice of God.

#2 Relationships

When you get into a relationship and want it to last longer, you should focus on the ingredients for stability i.e. understanding, respect, detachment, freedom, growth. If one focus on the physical and unstable factors i.e. looks, money, pleasure, attachment etc, there are more chances that the relationship will end, change or dry up soon.

#3 Gratitude

Are you more of a giver or taker? Are you satisfied with what you have or keep on wishing for more? If we are a taker and feel dissatisfied with your life, you need to change your attitude for the better. Drop the habit of asking for more. Pray God for gratitude and not only for the fulfilment of your wishes. When you ask for more, the inner self-contracts and when you are a giver the inner self-expands. Develop the feeling of gratitude and giving with the capacity of what you have without asking for more.

#4 Clutter-free home clutter-free mind

Watch if you have developed the habit of collecting things. Scrutinize your home and see how many unnecessary or duplicate things have you collected. Keep your home clutter free to develop the habit of living in lighter physical space with more open space. The same will be reflected over to your mind, and the mind will also adapt to keep itself clean from unnecessary thoughts and junk.

Stay Blessed! Happy Reading!

How to boost your Self-Confidence for getting success in life

What is Self Confidence Having belief in oneself is the easiest way to define self-confidence. This is the power of your inner self, which develops your attitude. And this attitude plays a vital role whenever you deal with a situation in an outside or inside world.
A person with strong self-confidence has the positive attitude of 'come what may' and is ready to face every situation in life. Whereas, a person with low self-confidence, avoids facing the challenges and always tries to escape the situation.

Why Self Confidence is necessary Your self-confidence is the fuel that keeps you running after your goals and achieve success. Your Self-Confidence is like the fire that propels you to move forward and reach your destination. And in the process, it weeds out the fear, weaknesses, and insecurities inside you and turns you into an evolved person altogether. Whether it is about success in the external world by having a name, fame, money, power etc. or about your personal and spir…
