No es más rico quien más tiene sino el que menos necesita

The proverb “No es más rico quien más tiene sino el que menos necesita”, that was probably said by Buda Gautama, is willing to teach that happiness can’t be reached with excessive ambition. Actually, most of the times, we live thinking to possess things that make us feel better. This can’t last for long, and it never ends, as we live in a society in which frivolous needs are parts of ordinary life.
It is a vicious circle, that makes us feel like puppets in a world plagued by consumerism.

Said that, the point is that the number of things we can actually possess it is not directly proportionated to our level of satisfaction. And if sometimes it happens, it does not last for long, because from the moment the desire turns into reality, automatically its halo fades away for never return.
