The Goal

elders used to ask “what do you wanna become when you grow up?”

we just want to be successful.

Many of us dream to be successful. Most of us think glory and being very well known will bring luck or prosperity. But they might be mistaken by that.

Those listed few people who are/were extremely successful in their life had many battles to win and not always had it very easy to reach the top or have the fame they may receive now. It is also impossible for us to know if they are really happy with their life and feel blessed and are feeling lucky.

Can we be sure they reached the dream or got what they hoped for? Perhaps they had other aspirations and many of them for sure still have much wider dreams and want to do so much more. For many of them their goal is not at all reached, though we may think they got at their end point or that they reached the unreachable.

Luck and successfulness should be investigated and questioned and not always go together. Many seemingly very successfully people where very unhappy and still found themselves not successful.

What is it we want to strive for and how do we want to built up our successfulness. When do we consider ourselves successful? what is being successful?
Is having fame the same as being successful? Do know that television and showbiz people may at one moment being renown, but very soon their fame begins to tarnish when their name is not any more on the role. Many spectators look up at those people who they call famous or ‘world renowned’ though they even are not yet known by many in their own region. It is all relative. Celebrities may be in the picture a lot, but that does not secure their success nor their happiness. The local heroes or today’s celebrities or the forgotten ones of tomorrow.

Those working hard in the shade, all those unknown by many may be trying to make something of their life, and perhaps many of them are more successful in reaching their goal. Best is that they all try to be happy with what they have and can get and not loose their faith in their dreams.

Disclaimer – Proceed only if you do not believe in “Everything is lust and mirage (Sab moh maya hai)”.

We all know how we are born (I know, they forgot to wear the protection), but for a moment let’s think about the “why” part – the meaning of life.

I don’t know if you remember it or not, when you were a kid, elders used to ask “what do you wanna become when you grow up?” and we used to say – Doctor, engineer, lawyer, bus conductor, blah blah. And the answer to the question changed with time. But one thing always remained constant – whatever it is, we just want to be successful. So the interim conclusion is “The goal of life is to be successful”. Success is something that everybody wants in life, but what is success? What are the parameters to measure success?

I have listed few…

For The Love of Stuff

The son of God came to explain the Wishes of his heavenly Father, the Divine Creator, Who many had placed aside for things they could see, feel and absorb. Today it is even worse than at the time of the master teacher, rabbi Jeshua (Jesus Christ). Today most people are even not interested in God and the teachings of Christ do let them cold.

But even those who do not want to believe that there exist a Supreme Higher Being, would better listen to what this son of man from Nazareth, who also is called son of of God, has to tell.

The rules or ways of life Jesus was telling about are still important for every one living on this planet. For those who call themselves Christian, there should be no doubt to find reasons to follow those teachings and to follow the advice of this Jewish man.

He was a communist avant la lettre, which makes it so difficult for many to find agreement in the way we should relate to each other and how we should be a humble part in the creation. Man often thinks him higher and more important than all the rest and this makes him often to think to be god and to be able to do whatever they want.

Jesus teaches us to take care of that what is given to us in loan. Yes, we are not the master of those things. It is the heavenly Father, The Only One God, Who has given man the right to name the elements of the universe and to take care of it. And that last part man seems to have forgotten. today we should take up the cord again and nit for a nice relationship with our surroundings.

Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates has been named America’s richest man by the Forbes 400 list almost every year for the past 20-odd years. Gates has a net worth of $72 billion (that’s around NZ$87 billion) thanks to some very hard work and good business sense.

Despite generously giving away a large portion of his fortune Gates continues to feature as one of the most powerful people on earth.

By comparison my own wealth and power are very insignificant. And yet the goals of financial success and worldwide recognition still sit there, glistening and unattainable. I am constantly driven by a desire for success and so often seek to find my worth in material things.

Too often my value lies in the things I do, the money I am able to earn or in the stuff I own.

Yet the Christian faith calls us to find our true selves in something…
