We are living in the era of products and services, digitalization, and technology. Stores Department is flooded with a number of products. We will see advertisements and promotions everywhere and that creates the space in your life that you never need earlier.
When you will go to any mall and for shopping, you may have a list but you will end up with a lot of products that you never planned to buy. Paying card or online payment will always allow buying that product. It is psychological fact when we pay money by cash, we feel how much money we are spending, but with cards, we easily pay that time and at the end of the month, we have a number of bills to pay.
In my experience, earlier I have also bought many things that I don’t need and was attracted by many distractions in my life. After transforming my life into simple living and high thinking, I became more productive, focused, and living a meaningful life.
Understand the fact we will see many things in the shopping center, businesses are running on this policy, the more they will show the more consumer will buy. As a result, businessmen are becoming richer and average people are always broke and chasing money.
I have seen here many garage sales, and that makes me think that people bought many things that they don’t need but like and wish for. As a result, they have spent more money which they could use wisely.
People who buy things to show off others are always broke and pay the bills. This is a time and energy stealer that they can use in more productive things. Everything has a price if you are using things that are in excess you are depriving others who really need them. The products and the other material things if used more than you need will cost you many ways-
- It drains your time and energy
- It makes you unproductive
- It makes you pay more bills
- It consumes our Natural resources,
- It deprives others who really need it.
It’s not only about the only material things but anything that you are using in excess that you need will cost you indirectly a lot.
Now in the US, recession doesn’t come because of any situation. It is the result of money flew in Covid Time and that increased more purchasing power, as a result, it inflation, gas & food price are increasing and interest rates are very high and the stock market is going down.
There are a number of people have fond of the collection of cars, shoes, bags, and cosmetics. If you have money to buy these things doesn’t mean that is the right decision, you have wasted your time, energy, and health buying these material things which you could use in a meaningful and productive life and could invest in love, relationship, earning blessings, charity, and giving back to society.
In ancient times, people were struggling to earn the basic things for life but still were happy and satisfied with their life. Now people have tons of things in excess of what they really need, still struggling, frustrated, and draining their energy in maintaining them.
Joshua Becker, the best-selling author of The more or less, the Minimalist Home, and the things that Matter points out that we should use minimum things and keep away from distractions to create a better life.
A wealthy person is not the one who has a collection of many things but the one who lives simple and meaningful life and has abundance in relation, love, health, and money.

Plain living and high thinking should be your goal. Learn to carry all the conditions of happiness within yourself by meditating and attaining your consciousness to the ever-existing, ever-conscious, ever-new Joy, which is God. Your happiness should never be subject to any outside influence. Whatever your environment is, don’t allow your inner peace to be touched by it. — Paramahansa Yogananda
