yeah, happiness certainly depends on wealth... the more you have, the lesser happy you are supposed to be... lol... money brings headache... more specifically, money upto the level adequate for maintaining the basic needs is the the threshold level beyond which wealth may bring headache as well...

Hello, yes I completely agree with you. Money beyond a certain amount may indeed be a headache. One can be satisfied with the basic needs, again one can never be satisfied no matter how much wealth he has. But wealth becomes headache when you have developed a certain strong desire to acquire and store money. To my notion a real beggar is one who is totally controlled by his desire to make money. If you can get rid of that desire, wealth can serve truly righteous cause, thus giving you satisfaction and happiness. Thanks so much for such a sincere response God bless you
