Golden spoon and dirt spoon

 When I was a high school student, I had a quarrel with my youngest sister.
 "What's it in aid of if I become a professor or a doctor? Even at that time, I will still agonize what I'm agonizing now and suffer from it!"
 "What are you talking about, little boy? Be like the other boys!"
 I can't remember exactly what I was thinking about those days but it seemed certain that I wasn't interested in things like so-called success.
 These days I often hear 'golden spoon(This is from the English expression, 'born with a silver spoon in one's mouth')' or 'dirt spoon.' Most people are envious of 'golden spoon' and send sympathy to 'dirt spoon.' However, this reality is like putting the cart before the horse. The fundamental reason why people want to be rich economically is that becoming rich seems to bring them happiness. Is it really the case?
 The best value in life is happiness and peace. How can we have these two things in our life? What makes it possible is diligence, frugality, and honesty. Understandably, it is really difficult for 'golden spoons' to practice the three things.

 Be the person who think it fortunate to be in the state of poverty. If you can live ,working hard, using money sparingly, and say and behave righteously, you will experience the true happiness and peace in your life.

Blessing

If we bless the farmland, as the land gives us good harvest, we make ourselves be blessed by blessing others.
