Normally havenots complain on haves (even among the countries). We are talking about humans. If a man earns his money through hard way and lives luxuriously, do you feel jealous of him? Can you narrage an incidence in your life?

I dont think luxury is a evil.If someone earns money with hardwork and effort to live a luxury life why to get jealous of them? Its their money ,with which they are enjoying their life.Its a waste of time for others to comment about people leading a luxury life and wise people will only think of improving their life in a better way.

A very few understand that it is a waste of time talking about others who are leading a luxirous life. The general tendency of people is to appreciate others when they do not have it in themselves. So why many people talk about celebrities? Because of their style of living, in which many people identify themselves, dream of their life style.Thaks for interesting response.

To begin with, I don't think that luxury is an evil if the person is using the hard-earned money to live a luxury life to enjoy the quality of his life. He deserves it thanks to his hard work and diligence. I won't feel jealous of him. Everyone has his own fate, which is mastered in his own hands. If I want to have a quality life for my family, I will just work hard to make more using my wisdom.

That is a right type of philosophy one should adopt in life to have peaceful mind, instead of feeling jealous on others. Thaks for interesting response and have a nice weekend.

You are welcome, ssh. But this weekend we don't have a rest. We are still working and we won't have a rest until the end of 28th before we have our National Day. Right now we have to work 17 days straight till 28th. I remember that I once told you about our working days, so different from the other schools as our students come from different parts of the country. Have a good weekend, ssh.

I think if somebody earn this money with hard work, I do not think I would be jealous of him.He probably deserve it and it is also not my business how he use or spend his money.If somebody like luxury, why not?But I am sure there are so many people , who would be jealous, but it's only silly and wasting time, becuase each of us has a talent for something, we just need to use it.

Waste of time - you rightly said. Many do not care for it. As you said we should use our talent and earn our money ourselves than looking up at others.

The problem of those who are jealous is they still did not figure out what they have talent for.

I do not think Luxury is an evil. The man who enjoys the wealth because of his inheritence or because of his fortune or hard work, if he leads a luxury style of living, I do not think one should object or one should feel jealous. It is his virtue.

Luxury is not an EVIL.. maybe too much love for it... There is no Biblical passage that is saying that being luxurious is bad.. well, i dont know.. if there is.. then please correct me.. but I am not a luxurious person.. I am just a simple person living in a simple but beautiful world.. Im happy and contented on what i have right now.. but still striving to became a better and happier person.. =)

Thatis the right kind of philosophy one should have in life to have everylasting happiness. As you know that human wants are unsatiable, he craves for more more things from ordinary utility item to luxurious item. Thanks for your meaningful response.

I never feel jealous for others because whatever is his can never become mine. So why be jealous of others. And if the person has made a lot of effots a lot of sacrifices why be jealous of him. If I want to achieve that he has achieved I also must work hard.
