The way in which one places the importance of life varies from people to people. Some people want more in life. This is in terms of the material gains such as luxury. People end up going for more luxury by working hard at the work in the hope of achieving promotion which will means higher remunerations. The asset issue in respect of the close one who passes away is an example of the dependents fighting for the rights on more assets. I have seen such scenarios happening again and again. What is the rationale for such struggle fight for the assets? Such assets become meaningless when one leaves the planet Earth. My take is that I will be content with the three meals on a table and having a shelter to shield me from the element of the weather. I will reflect on the fortune of having such simple needs fully taken care of.
I believe that the above all lies on the simple desire. The more simple the desire is, the more content one will be and has the peace of mind.
