Basically people are very confused about life, and you they may take it all with a sense of humour or they may take it very lightly, but actually it is a very serious business. That being a human being we should be very careful not to again fall back down the animal kingdom, we should become purified, in fact we should be elevated far out of this… this range of life.
We are born with advanced intellect, not just to use it to work so hard and invest money and, make huge industrial complexes and make, you know, fantastic investments in the stock market and become multimillionaires, so that we can like our Fisher Mansion in Detroit, so that he could make nice place to where he made a ball room so he could dance and drink and big bedrooms and big bathrooms with gold handles, and that’s basically, so… just they can have a nice comfortable living, and they think that is success.
I just somebody handed me a book, a couple of days ago, I just opened it up to a page, and it said that well, “One thing you have to realize is that, along with success there are many frustrations, you have to know that being “successful” doesn’t mean you are going to be happy, but you have to be satisfied with being successfully even though you are not happy. Thanks. Don’t need that book.
