Contemplating holistic wealth…

In under developing countries, or in low income villages, wealth is identical with money. Or at least focus only on physical wealth like land and buildings. As society grow more mature financially, socially and spiritually, wealth will mean much deeper and richer than just physical wealth. People need something more. For that reason, let’s contemplate the deeper meaning of wealth.

To be frank, the deeper meaning of wealth transcends mere accumulation of money and material assets. True wealth encompasses a holistic sense of well-being, including physical health, mental and emotional stability, and fulfilling relationships. It involves having the freedom to pursue one’s passions, contribute to society, and live with purpose.

Wealth in its profound sense is also about security and peace of mind. It allows individuals to navigate life’s uncertainties without undue stress, ensuring they have the resources to support themselves and their loved ones through various challenges. This form of wealth fosters resilience and the capacity to bounce back from setbacks.

Moreover, wealth can be seen as an enabler of personal growth and development. It provides access to education, experiences, and opportunities that enrich one’s life and broaden horizons. This aspect of wealth nurtures a sense of accomplishment and self-actualization, which are crucial for a fulfilling life.

Social wealth, defined by the quality of one’s relationships and community connections, is another vital component. It highlights the importance of love, support, and shared experiences, underscoring that true wealth is often measured by the strength of one’s love with the others.

Philanthropy and the ability to impact others positively also define deeper wealth. Sharing resources to uplift others and contribute to the greater good brings a sense of purpose and fulfillment that mere possession cannot provide.

To make it simple, the deeper meaning of wealth is about creating a balanced, enriched life, where financial resources are just one part of a broader spectrum that includes health, relationships, personal growth, and the ability to make a positive difference in the world.

In the age where money is very dominating, few seekers who are interested in spiritual wealth. In fact, this is the true wealth that all souls seek. Without spiritual wealth, souls will circling around again and again endlessly. From one life to another life. From one rebirth to another rebirth.

To help you find the spiritual wealth, look deeper in to this present moment. There’s peace and silence within everything and everyone. No one who create it, it simply there. No need to struggle, it’s available to everyone. What you need is silence the mind, rest the brain from any dualities, treat this moment as a gift. Until one day you’ll undersntand through direct reazation: “You’re peace of silence, you’re silence of peace”. That’s the ultimate wealth. The only wealth that can not be stolen. All blooming souls find home in this spiritual wealth.

About the author

H.H. Guruji Gede Prama

Gede Prama started his spiritual journey through a dialogue with his symbolic Guru in a village at the north of Bali. The journey is then being enriched with his experiences of studying abroad, his meetings with the world greatest spiritual Gurus: His Holiness Dalai Lama, The Venerable Thich Nhat Hanh, as well as Professor Karen Armstrong; and also being deepened by his intense meditation practices.

Despite the fact that he was once a CEO of a large corporation with thousand of employees, and was traveling abroad frequently for the purpose of teaching, yet, being deeply moved by the Bali bombing incident in 2002, he then decided to leave everything and went back to his home island.
He has never leave Bali for the past few years. In fact, he rarely leaves the silence of the forest where he lives, except for the purpose of teaching at the sacred sites within Bali.
