Your article is very thought provoking.
I have been following this blog .
And my thought has crystallized over the years( am over 60 ) thru discussions with my Guru ,reading , and practicing a special spiritual regime which includes meditation.
It is absolutely true that no wealth in the world can make you can only provide physical comforts.
Happiness is an inner feeling which can only be achieved by questioning in the manner suggested by you,and finding the answers for ourselves.
The next step is to decide your goals and then pursue them singlemindedly .
Success will come ultimately. Its only a matter of time ,but the pursuit itself and every step u make shall be utmost ,spirituality is always in pursuit of happiness.
And this is what maters in life .
Being happy and imparting happiness to others,with no expectation of any return .
In the Hindu philosophy and Yoga practice its all about finding this inner peace and ultimate happiness and the Sages have shown the path .
May God bless you Tina for this blog and thanks for your writings.
