Most of us want money more than anything in life because we think money can buy many things and solve most of the problems in the worldly life. Some of us want fame and we all want loving relationships. So, what do you want in life? How to get all that you want in life? I think knowing about inner self and developing the spirituality,we can get all that we want in life. Your views please.....

dear anna, Everything depends on what we want in our life and what is life according to our own standards. Some people wants money, some beauty, some happiness. I want peace and happiness, money of course- but not the foremost. How did I achieved and did I ever get all/everything that I want? Not yet..but life is not that hard for me. And I am fine with life right now. have a good day dear anna

jai dear, it's good to note you are content with what you have right now. It's a great way of living. However you should keep on improving your standard of living with all the possible ways available to you. Having said that, I want to add that developing the spirituality is much more important than all these things.Try to get connected with God as much as possible. This is my opinion, dear.

I would like to be able to be a very strong spiritual person. It seems I'm always facing challenges to this goal. I strive to work hard to study a lot and instill values in my child. I at times feel as if I'm never going to reach the outcome of the goals that I want. I would like to be able to work and have a comfortable financial income. I don't desire riches but I would like to be able to not have to overly worry about emergencies that may come up. I too desire to have good and loving relationships with family and friends.

Hi, Dominique25 , it's good to have loving relationships. the fact of the matter is if you develop your spiritual power, everything else will fall into place without your efforts.That's the power of spirituality.

agree that spiritual things are very important. There are so many things in life that try and crowd these valueable things out. I'm continually trying to manage these thoughts, feelings and people and things. Life is easier when we have things in there proper place.

hi, devi53, that's what Bhagavad Gita teaches us.Unfortunately many of us spend our whole lives without knowing about the importance of self realization and the importance of developing the spiritual power.

Want to be safe with a small house in a big garden. And want to be in the part of world where summers are not too hot, winters are not too cold, rains follow specific pattern - i.e., they come only when I am indoors. And hope me and my pa will be healthy and unworried about finances for the remaining part of our lives, and if possible, I would like to bring up a mentally challenged kid.

hi, vandi dear, that's how we all think, I mean we always give importance to our health, our wealth and our status in society.There is nothing wrong in it.However we should try to look at higher things in life, like developing your spiritual aspects in life, that will help you get all that you want including a mentally challenged child-I know such a child of 55 years in Chennai, care to adapt?

hi, Dassodils , you are right that peace is of course very important in life.Glad to note you have a great family. Apparently the current world is for the rich men. However, it's not true. If you develop your spiritual powers, nothing can match them in this world.

I will admit money is definitely a plus and/or bonus in our life and makes things a bit more easier. But personally I just want love/healthy relationship and most importantly my family. With those I think my life would probably be complete, but like I said having money makes it more simple and funner.

Hi,fabsprecious, apparently money plays a big role in our lives. Yet as you rightly pointed out a loving family is more important than money for many of us.I do agree with you that having money makes it more simple and funner. .

My goal in life is to find harmoney with self. I am consistantly working toward that. I am came a long ways and can see the results from it. When you find self harmoney, you can do anything you want in life. Skys the limit. Also you will allow life to take you and guide you. I picture it a stream of water. I flow with life and I do not let me boat turn up current so its hard to paddle. Back a couple years ago, My brother and I started to figure out how to make money online. We also figured out that we had something to say and we had a chance to help people. So we started our business. Now we own www.thehellbrothers.com/ dietplanforlosingweight.com and waystogetaflatterstomach.com. We have actually acheived what we have wanted and we are succeeding in life as we wanted. but non of this could of been possible if we didn't find self harmony first. Everyone can do what they want in life, they just need to give themselves a chance!

I want to have my own home and I got my cottage at age 19 years old. I sold it when I was 33 years old and bought my modern house. I sold that when I was 38 years old. Then I bought a bungalow to suit my disabled son. He is 4 years old and in a wheelchair. I want to have children. I am lucky because I have three children. I have a 16 year old son, a 4 year old disabled son and a 2 year old daughter. I want to have pets. I have got 2 dogs. I love to travel to different countries and I have been to more than fifty different countries in the world. My favorite countries that I have visited are Samoa, Australia, New Zealand, Belize and the Seychelles. In life the best things to have are happiness, excellent health and good luck.

You're right most of the people right now are more concern about money...We tend to work hard just to earn a lot of money...be able to us to buy things that we like..but we never satisfied....does anyone hear from someone that they are working to have an inner peace and happiness...me I never heard anyone said that.but instead I heard a lot of people saving money to buy iphone4S and other gadgets because it will make him or her happy if she will be able to get it.but I seldom hear anyone working hard to save his/her soul.for me I want to have happiness and inner peace..but how ca I have it???It easy to say I wnat to have that but I myself having difficulty to find it.what is this thing happiness and inner peace?I read an article from readers digest this person said,that you will find happiness and inner peace if you know how to appreciate simple things and be content of what you have.I agree to him on that aspect.Happiness and inner peace is what I want in life..what about your's???

hi, mahusayako, yes, we all work hard to earn money and spend them to get what we want in life. However there are bigger things in life other than money, wealth and worldly pleasures. It's about self realization, knowing the inner strength. If you can develop your spiritual powers, all the other things will fall into place.

I think that we have first to live the present and see what elese we need accomplish in our life, then work for that making each day a little goal to reach it and be faithfull of God and ourselves. In my case I love that my family and me are healthy in peace with love and trying to be near God all the time, so there is not more treasure than that.

Hi, Rosa26, I agree with you that we need to live the present in full. Getting close to God is the best thing you could experience in life. The self realization, inner enrichment is what we need. Once we can go to that level in spirituality other things will fall into place.

We all want different things in life. I want to have a healthy family, which so far I can say I have. I would like to be able to earn enough money to help provide for my family.

hi, waiting9914, Most of us want money and a healthy family as you pointed out. however there is a higher dimension of life that we don't ever think of. That is the spiritual life...

Hi, in my opinion, things what you want depend on your standard. some people think that money and fame are more important than any other thing.Some people choose the sprituality. I think if you want something, you must give up some oter thing. If you want something you never had, you must do something you never had done.
• India
26 Nov 11
hi, waiting9914 , I do agree with you that you will have to give something to get something, and that's life isn't it? But all these things are of less value if you realize your own self, the power that is within you.

I want all of the wealthy things like a nice, big house and a sports car and a good job! I also want a big, loving family and a region where my children can receive good, safe schooling! It's a long ways from now, but at least I have some expectations that I adapt my life too, to achieve them of course! In order to get all of these nice things, I have to do extremely well in college, and I have to choose the best job for income and convenience. There's a long road to obtain all of these wanted items but I will continue to strive for it, in hopes that I will one day have at least a portion of it!

I totally agree with you dellessimon45. However these things are of lower value if you realize the power within you, if you develop the spiritual aspects. Things will be much different then and you will be bale to get what all you want automatically.It's a bit difficult to understand though.

Except for a good health and my freedom there is nothing I want in my life. There is no getting it all. My health I can't chance and my freedom I take as much as it is possible in my situation. I agree with you that if you develop your spirituality you can get what you want but also that you will discover that getting it all is not needed or you even don't need it anymore.

You are right Samantha24 , that good health is the most important requirement for everyone.If you realize the inner power within you then all these things will fall into place.

That is an interesting question but i think it all depends on what you consider important money, love or fame what we want is always changing. what we want as a teen is different then what we want as an adult but I think the most important thing is to find something that you love to many people do jobs they hate because of money and end up hating life. My theory is the happiest people are the ones doing what they love so no matter what your goal is always strive for that

Hi, Samantha24 , it's very true that one should choose the education and job suiting his/her interests and skills.However, I was talking about bigger thing in life, the spirituality. If you develop it, believe me, all the other things will fall into place.

hi, Hatley , I can understand your feelings. I pray to God that you should soon be able to move into a decent house. However I was talking about bigger thing in life, I mean the spirituality. If you develop it, all the other things will fall into place.

I think most of us don't even have the skills to figure out what we are doing here in the first place. Trying to figure out what we want just has to go in the "too hard" basket...for me anyway.
