Avaritia


A story that my Dad tells me about life..I kno Many of you had heard of it from me and many of you might not...
S0 here goes the story...
When God was creating the world..he decided to give 25 years of life to Man, Donkey, Cow and Dog.
Except the Man everyone else was unhappy
So the Donkey went to god and said " Oh my lord! the world is pretty tough for me as I have to do loads of work to survive..I can't bear the burden..spare me and please reduce my life span to 10 years "
God said "But how will I balance the delicate nature..will sumone wanan take up ur spare life..."
Man said , "Yes I will"

Similarly Cow n Dog also went to God and the man accepted all their extra life....

And then Man took birth...
He lives like A man for 25 years..and then he start living the life of the Donkey where he works hard to survive for next 15 years, then it's Cow life starts where everyone his wife... his kids everyone squeezes him for extra bit of life, just like we take out out milk from the cow..and wen he turn 55 ..his life becomes like a dog...where he keeps on barking on people, get irritated and had to wag his tail to get a lil piece of food to survive....

So this story tell us how Man toook extra bit of misery and added in his life...


So tell me what's that??? Was man wrong on first place to accept all the extra life..
Yes???
Then why do u still a sinnner with Avaritia..
Yeah frnds I m talking about another sin of the life and that's Avaritia..the Greed.

The greed was defined as Desire for extra wealth...and sin of excesses ..but I feel greed is what we desire for extra piece in our life...We are never satisfied with what we get and we strive for more..and then we choose the path of the sin to fulfill our desire for more..

U feel u r not greedy?? U are well satisfied with ur life...

I don't thinks so..all of us work hard to survive but No..we don't work hard..actually we work harder to live life happily..U used to work 8 straight hours..now u chose a job to satisfy ur desire for a better life and u work now for 10 hours straight..so wen do u live the life..
u wake up at 7 ..reach office by 9..work there till 7 and come back panting at 9..have ur dinner..and by 11 u get to bed for ur 8 hours sleep...so wen are u living the life for which u r earning extra...ur spouse is unhappy..ur life is unhappy..u r in stress..so wat does this little money is bringing in ur life apart from increasing ur bank balance..
Wat if the Apocalypse comes tomorrow and we are all dead..okay if there is reincarnation..it's fine..u get a chnace to live for another life and u rectify all the fault u committed...but wat if there is no reincarnation..wat if we are jus a assempby of cells which will disintegrate wid us in this life and we are soul less and dead completely..no life no ghosty life or norreincarnation..so wat will that extra bankbalance will help....

The desire for more..it never ends and it always brings misery in ur life..
I have talked about money ..but Desire for extra starts from money and it reaches deep in our life..Extra desire for power..desire for beauty, desire for fame..everything in excess jus brings in Misery...

So frnds try to overcome the Avaritia and feel content.
Take out time ..not for money but for urself as if this is the only life u have..then live it..don't waste it for getting a Mercedes wen u can have an AC small car with extra mileage...
Live the life my frnd..coz may be it is ur only chance to feel the world..so work hard..but take out time for urself ..don't destroy it longing for more..Don't be blinded..Don't be a sinner of Avaritia...LIfe is beautiful..Don't waste it on materialistic pleasure

Love n carez

  1. I so agree with you on this..Greed is more misery than anything, it is a form of bondage.

    Even tho I am young, I hold on to what my dad always said.. Live your life like there is no tomorrow!! Live as if you are going to die tomorrow!!

    This is a great lesson her in this story.. we ask for more and more and yet we don't have time to enjoy it, because we are to busy working for MORE!!!!

    WONDERFUL!!!!

  6. Agree with you....but being greedy to see someone else prosper and happy is not bad I guess...when it makes you a slave then you are right....

    and about the story I what about the sacrifices a woman makes...I am not sure if I liked it cause it feels biased...

    Greed is a term which is used for self..if u want to see other propser is altogether a different phenomena...but even if u do it more..u do sin of excesses..
    eiiieeew m sounding like a preacher :P

    Man that story was told by my father to me..so it was male to male..so he emphasized on male..but if u read carefully..that man is a collective noun for all those human living up the same life...it was not biased..as the woman too live her life upto 25 then she is married ..work hard for raising family n kids,..then kids n husband demands out more of her and after she too live meekly craving for food to survive..if u see the man in collective not in literary sense..u will not find it biased

  26. Ceedy..

    yeah..though dad wanted to put up a male to male..but i wanted it to read in general.,,so no one is wrong :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. its not just about getting that new mercedes though, right? its putting in some extra hours to save up so your kids can go to the best school (which I think is important), have that big wedding (which I think is a waste, although I did have a big one myself), etc...sometimes those extra hours are definitely justified. there is nothing wrong in striving for more and the best. the key is in striking a balance.

    Strike a balance between work and play and you're fine.

    BTW, I still want a merc (although I have a BMW already, and I don't think I am sinning :)

    working hard is never a sin...but working harder aimlessly for fulfilling ur desires is a sin...
    taklk abt kids...it's necessity..but working hard to spend it on extravagant events is a sin...wen u think of fulfilling ur unnecessary desires .. u r committing a sin..it sounds harsh ..but it is true...

    and BMW se Merc is not a sin at all :P if u give that BMW to me after u get ur Merc

  42. well, thats something i think so often about. What for do we work so hard if we cant enjoy the results of this hard work. thats so tough to find that balance between life and work without making work your life.
