Living in Luxury is Not a Pipe Dream



Living in Luxury!

Observing the lifestyles of the rich and famous is a fun pastime for many of us. We dream of how cool it would be to live in the lap of luxury as they do. Fancy cars, premium restaurants, exotic vacations, mansions . what a life they lead! But, for most people, this dream is quickly followed by the thought not for me. And often some sort of condemnation of the rich follows to soothe our wounded ego because of how we’re not able to achieve what they have. 

Several serious fallacies surround the idea that what the rich and famous have cannot be achieved by most other persons. The ideas of scarcity and the moral wrongness of wealth are two of the primary culprits perpetuating the idea that a life of luxury is a pipe dream. The universe is abundantly overflowing with all that is needed for everyone it is individual thinking and feeling that directs the flow. If you believe in lack, lack is what you will get. If you believe in the infinite abundance and love of the universe, that is what you’ll get. The idea of the moral wrongness of having or acquiring great wealth and luxury is absurd in the face of a universe of unending supply. 

Dare to think outside of fear-based, limited supply ideas. You can live a life of luxury. There is no wrong in achieving a comfortable and abundant life. Your life is your responsibility. Your neighbor’s life is your neighbor’s responsibility. This is what makes giving to others and gratitude for what you have so rich. Giving to others is not an obligation, it is a choice motivated by love. Gratitude for what you have and what you receive will grow what you receive. Living in luxury can be yours if you choose it. By allowing yourself to enjoy that luxury without guilt, you are simultaneously allowing others the same right. In other words, you are loving others as you love yourself.


Consumption and Production Imbalance

Without a shadow of doubt, almost every person, no matter which spot on earth he is standing with his one pair of feet, is a definite full-time consumer victim.

It is deceptively simple that all full-time consumers are far off the production platform. There’s always this sparkling horizon that’s brings forth new stuff every day in every field you can think of, be it a new song, movie, or simply a new everything. And so, you keep up doing your best to save cash for that new iphone or movie to watch at the movies with your friends by the weekend.

It’s a problematic lifestyle that would hinder you from catching up. No matter what, you will be behind simply because there is always something to consume. Once we fall deeper in that trap of consumption trying to fill a void, somewhere along the line we forget that it is an ever-important thing to simultaneously be a balanced consumer and producer. Instead of just watching TV, reading books, or playing video games we need to change our characteristics and be at least to a certain extent productive by creating ideas for TV, writing, and programming.

Once you are aware of your positioning in the spectrum between consumer and producer, it would make you change the imbalance to strive for the betterment of your life achieving some goals and be among the successful who contribute in their society.
