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.


Changing the Awkward Reality

It is mostly taken for granted that history is bound to repeat itself. People do often think that today is but a mirror image of yesterday and that the future is going to be the same as today.

But the fact is that everything is constantly and imperceptibly changing without even being aware of that. It’s probably the inability to catch up the changing reality that ultimately leads to failures. And so people fall in the trap of some superstitious thoughts such as blaming the stars or lucky charms, or even blaming whole society and economy.

Reality is an amalgamation of space and time which are two non-static concepts that are in constant dynamic motion. It is an undeniable fact that every moment is different and unique and every incident has many hues of reality. Changing the negative and awkward reality needs examining the negative beliefs we have had in our past experiences because they hold us back. Likewise, we must let the belief that the world is persistently changing and that you are the creator of your own reality kick in.

It all starts from within. Once you master the art of optimism and creating your own world in which you can actively fit in, you will gradually climb the ladder of success and perhaps have your fingerprint on someone’s heart.
