About a century ago, a tourist from the United States visited the Polish Rabbi Hafez Hayyim.
He was astonished to see that the Rabbi's home was just one simple room filled with books.
The only furniture in the room was a small table and a bench, that served as a bed also.
"Rabbi, where is your furniture?" asked the visitor.
"Where is yours?" Asked Hafez.
"Mine? But I'm only a visitor here."
"So am I," said the Rabbi.
(A story taken from the web)
Now, in the 21st century, we live in a modern society. We have so many things in our homes and yet we are not satisfied.
Our wardrobes are overfilled with clothes and yet, if we need to go to someone's home, a function or a party, or even for a special Satsang, we complain "I have nothing to wear for this occasion". And we go for more shopping.
Our pantries and refrigerators are over flowing with food, and yet the children complaint "There is nothing for me to
eat here in this house"
The more we have, less satisfied we are. The more we get, the more we complaint.
What is happening to us ?
