Most of us live as if there is no substance attached to our existence. We find peace, meaning and fulfilment in adulterated things like the latest fashion trends and latest electronics. Instead of being dependent on popular trends, why can’t we live with substance?
Life is short, beautiful and valuable. Embedded in the serenity of life is its own substance- the precious reasons we can find/allocate to our existence.
We spend most of our days chasing meaningless things as human beings, forgetting to look and find the substance hidden in life.

As genuine as the above may seem, it is in fact false. It is this misconception which has led us astray from the very point where happiness resides. How on earth will you find something when you are looking for that particular thing at the wrong place? No matter how much efforts you put into your search, it will still yield nothing. After all, you are searching for the non-existing. Read more
