Gold

Those with a little, yet enough, are content.

Rich rarely so.

Wealth does not buy freedom from attachment.

And true riches are immaterial.

I was pondering the same issue this evening.

A relative of mine spent so much to seek happiness, yet she could not shake off her depression.

I felt so lucky I do not need to spend anything to be the bliss--it only require us to drop the subtle belief that money can buy everything :)

Great Post Ta Wan, yes, 'true riches are immaterial', very nice indeed.

. . although there's nothing right or wrong with having wealth, just as long as you're not attached to it of course . . .

Yes, attachment infers 2 separate things: attached and atachee. Being is one.
