Food from Aliens 7

Foolish or ignorant men spend so much of their time and energies chasing these five Cs :
  • * Cash * Condominium * Car * Career * Credit Card

Wise or discerning men spend much time developing these five Cs :

* Calmness of the mind

* Compassion * Confidence in The Triple Gem
* Charity * Clarity of the mind

Isn't it an irony that we put in so much time and energy pursuing material wealth when none of the material wealth can follow us at death ... and death can happen any moment?

Wouldn't it be wiser to put in more time and energy to train and purify our mind ... the well-trained mind will be on the way to true happiness, peace and freedom.
