God has graced us with different types of blessings. We can live a very happy and satisfied life with them. Assume we have several pockets stitched in our dress. There are different kinds of blessings in each pocket like money, parent’s affection, children’s love, sincerity of friends, trust of people, our health etc. Each pocket is featured with a unique blessing, all of them giving us pleasure and ready to protect us strongly against our problems, not even a single one leaving us alone when we are in trouble. In other words we already have solution of the forthcoming problems in our pocket. This all seems to be designed for a happy and ideal life that anyone can dream of.
We earn money subject to our progress. If we do not progress, we cannot earn more money. The money we earn is commensurate with our expense. When we set our mind towards more and more money due to any reason that may be our uncontrollable over expense or our unfair desire of unnecessary storage of money and yet we are not capable to earn that we will try to get it through some other way. As we’re not capable of earning enough money we require for the things we do not need or cannot afford, soon the pocket full of money gets empty but we still need more money.
Looking for more money we put our hand into the next pocket. There we find sincerity and trust of a friend instead of money. But we do not need his sincerity and trust this time. We need money, only money. We pose as we are in problem and ask the friend for some monetary help. Since trust is there, the help is there. We are immediately rescued and get money, feel relaxed and spend it. Then the next desire is ahead so is the next pocket and so on.
As we need more and more money there is no question of returning the borrowed money on time or even of returning it at all. So trust leaves the pocket and takes away the sincerity along with it. Pocket is empty and blessing is out.
Now if we face a problem that our friend can solve, we put our hand into the pocket but its empty. No help is available and we cannot even ask. This time we’ve to buy help from the one, who is not tested before and which may be without sincerity. We can be betrayed here. Money paid goes waste and problem remains there to hurt us. Now bad luck comes into the pocket along with its allies like anxiety, tension, fear, depression and agony etc. They haunt us. Ah! we are alone having no way to escape.
We were protected from the problems by the blessings in our pockets. If we take care of these blessings and do not convert them into money they’ll happily live with us and will be ready to protect us all the time
Love, loyalty, sincerity, expectations and trust etc., the people keep or repose in us are our assets that elevate our image high and help us to progress. It’s very precious and cannot be bought against money. This is the result of our behaviour and experience of the people dealing with us through a long time. Do not try to convert this all into money. A person is not poor if he does not have money. The poor is one who does not have blessings discussed above.
Situation of bad luck described above can also be the result of misfortune, accident or mismanagement of money etc. In that case the blessings will support and help us to regain our position.
