All people celebrate the festival of Dhanteras but th core of the truth has been lost for the Dhan here means Wealth while people have been habituated to understand that Dhan means money. One needs to understand that the whole concept of life is based on expansion of wealth and not just money for money in itself is temporary and fluctuating. If one runs after money or only desires money then there is huge limitation for it is the nature of beggar, for the moment money is in front of them they lose control of their life, thought and rationality and sooner than later they lose out the money through uneconomic ways of implementations of thought proess. Such a person shall never be in peace and will always project the form of a completely needy person whose need will be never satiated in whole of his life.
Wealth in reality is the power to create wealth for it needs creativity, thought and implementation of ideas and ways for gaining riches in life. Richness is true persona of life for it is filled with abundance and a sense of satisfaction. It is a perfect way on the path of generating wealth for it encompases development of Life Intelligence, Emotional Intelligence and finally Financial intelligence, for it is the perfect flow. Stability within self allows one to be ALIVE, balance with emotions brings about a Sense of Knowing and then Wealth becomes part of the life and this is the most powerful way of gaining Financial Stability.
Rich means abundance and in reality it transforms life, for it brings forth all that ability in a person to create wealth instead of just money, for money in money is not stability. Your belief transforms into Faith the moment one knows the path of becoming Rich. The first step is actually to be ready for the Wealth.
