Money or Soul – Which is more important?

Money is definitely important. But, if you thought it should be given more weight age than your soul, it's time you reconsider! Everyone makes and should make money for their day-to-day life for an uninterrupted smooth life. This means for your clothing, food and shelter. But, what if you have superfluous amount of money?

When our body and soul separate, will the surplus money invested in real estates, banks, insurance policies and others be of any benefit? Have you ever thought what is left once our body starts functioning? What happens to the soul? Does soul carry a bag to handle several lakhs and crores you have earned in your lifetime and you have enjoyed investing and re-investing to create more and more wealth.

The little time you are left to live, let it have a purpose. By purpose I don’t mean to say that you should have the so-called fun and entertainment for a moment’s happiness. You should do things which will make your ‘soul’ leave in peace when the time comes. Think of long-term happiness and satisfaction of the ‘soul.’ And if you are doing wrong things, it is time you thought what you could do to ‘purify your soul.’

Hello!

Very interesting and thought provoking post!

Jesus Christ said:WHAT DOES IT PROFIT A MAN IF HE GAINS THE WHOLE WORLD BUT SUFFER THE LOSS OF HIS OWN SOUL

He also said:IT IS EASY FOR A CAMEL TO ENTER THE EYE OF A NEEDLE THAN FOR A RICH MAN TO ENTER THE KINGDOM OF GOD

I also remember reading a quote from the BHAGVATH GITHA starting with: You came with nothing ----

and ending with: You will go with nothing.

Wish you a wonderful day!
