The above is a saying extracted from the literature of mahatma gandhi.is this saying fits in the present scenario of the rapidly advancing world especially when everything is being weighed in gold and silver?is it not wealth(gold and silver & of course money) which makes us happy and healthy now-a-days.

There is a heirarchy of needs defined by Maslow (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maslow's_hierarchy_of_needs) that puts physiological needs as the most basic and fundamental, upon which higher order needs may attained. As you can see, security is the 2nd order need that includes security of health, family, property, etc..

However, there is a concordance between Maslow's Pyramid and the Eastern principles of the energy Chakras (http://psychcentral.com/blog/archives/2011/02/06/maslow-revisited-the-hierarchy-of-chakras/). Although as you might expect, the Chakra system is more developed and differentiated, having had thousands of years to mature, while Maslow's ideas have only been around for 60 years.

In the end though, the objective of existence is self actualisation and anything that fools around with your lower order needs will hinder you attaining that objective/need.

So, in Maslow's Pyramid you can see the direct impact of the policies of institutions, governments and bureaucracies such as Central Banks, socialist/facsist/communist regimes and the military/industrial/globalist complexes on one's self realisation potential.

That is, you can not reach your potential without security of both your health and property (wealth), the very thing the FIAT money system and forced medication (e.g. water fuoridation) remove from you.

It certainly is interesting to view the whole battle field in this way, is it not?

Also interesting to look at the pyramid to see, in the West at least, what is the major focus -- Esteem/Achievement.

Then you look at how stable the levels below that are, and you quickly discover that it's a society built on shaky ground. The Physiological and Safety levels have eroded substantially, yet Crapmerican Idol is still #1!

Only when those levels are severely at risk will you see anything such as that in Egypt.

Happiness is a state of mind and not a state of being. People who travel are often surprised to find happy, but poor, people. They are surprised because they think back to their home country and remember depressed and unhappy people who by comparison are wealthy and all their basic needs and much more are being met. It is true though that it is hard to be happy if your belly is empty. But beyond basic needs happines or not is to be found in both the rich and the poor.

Although less confusing that staring into the navel of Abraham Maslow,
please don't go mixing up wealth and health.

They are distinct.

May we be fortunate enough to possess both.

If you have your health, you are a wealthy man. Which loosely translated means- You will be miserably poor, a lot f^@king longer!

I agree. Health is wealth. Your money is nothing if you have chronic diseases. You wont enjoy life if you have such illness. ;)

No you won't, but if you have money you "won't enjoy" life a lot less than someone who is poor.

You will be able to buy the best medicines and medical care, as well as the most comfortable surroundings.

Make no mistake, money does ease the discomfort of life; it's the attainment and preservation of said money which causes the pain (maybe that is a 'chronic disease' in itself!). ;)
