What in life makes you Truly Rich?

The kind of rich where you want for nothing.

Let’s look at the standard definition of ‘rich’:

  1. “Having a great deal of money or assets; wealthy,
  2. “Existing in plentiful quantities; abundant.

This is the definition for the type of rich you can materially see, but it does not bring about True Riches. 

For if it did, the very wealthy in our world would be in absolute peace and bliss…

Truly Rich is the kind of rich that never, ever fades.

The type that doesn’t need protecting or justifying.

Being Truly Rich is about all the things that you can’t quantify but can fully experience. 

It brings an enormous sense of fulfilment, wonder and love to your life that is simply unimaginable.

It’s the feeling you get when you experience the following that takes your breath away:

- Witnessing beautiful sunsets and sunrises

 – Laughter that hurts your insides 

- Experiencing parts of the world or nature you haven’t seen before

 – Immersing yourself in new cultures, hearing new languages, eating new foods 

- Creating something that makes you feel happy

 – Loving another or feeling loved 

Yes, it is true we need material riches such as money and assets.

After all, we do live in this world and need to be able to navigate through it.  

But the kind of rich that is created through competition will always have a cost attached — a cost that ultimately affects your body, your mind and your inner peace.  

In the words of Wallace Wattles;

"Riches secured on the competitive plane are never satisfactory and permanent; they are yours today, and another’s tomorrow”.

Money can provide you with many assets and experiences, and grant a certain amount of material freedom. 

However, it usually comes with a ton of responsibility. 

It may affect your relationships. You may incur a lot of expense and stress just to earn it, protect it, and keep it growing.

It is the riches created from being completely in the ‘creative state’ that allows for the deeper sense of fulfilment.   

“Every man who becomes rich by competition throws down behind him the ladder by which he rises, and keeps others down; but every man who gets rich by creation opens a way for thousands to follow him, and inspires them to do so” - Wallace Wattles.

When someone creates something that calls to every fibre of their being, regardless of what industry they may be in, the riches that follow are created from the same place and will always seek to lift that person; without the cost attached.

What kind of Rich do you want your life to be?

The things in this world that make you Truly Rich are all within you – it’s the feeling from the experience, rather than the experience itself. 

So, as you consider the life decisions this year whether it be in career, money, assets, property, keep in mind where your True Riches lie. 

Because when you do that, you will always make the decision that is right for the whole “You”, not just some small part of it.

    What a narrow band we use to quantify wealth. Being from South Wales, one of the most deprived areas of Europe, I am familiar with the concept that poverty is the one thing money can’t buy. But on a more serious note, how many of us look beyond the material when we are faced with a decision? I think we are frightened into a corner by fear of lack. And, as we can discover by examining our own experience deeply, that fear of lack is only a reflection of the ego fear of it’s own vapid existence. It needs MORE of everything to cover it’s naked vulnerability. Which is why factoring other considerations apart from the material is actually a spiritual exercise in and of itself. Because anything that challenges fear, especially the fear of the ego reflected in a fear of lack, is a spiritual enterprise. It sustains and lifts the spirit.
