Spiritual person, shouldn't they be Successful and Millionaires?


A spiritual person is balanced , connected and understands the flow of nature. They want to do good. Then why do these people stay on the side and not be that successful? Because for some reason they have been told that life is a misery and we need to get moksha. Following are the teaching of BUDDHA. I think most of us read the first Noble Truth and didn't read the rest of it.



TEACHINGS OF BUDDHA:

A. Noble Truths:  
The principal teachings of Gautama Buddha can be summarized in what the Buddhists call the "Four Noble Truths":
First - There is suffering and misery in life .
Second - The cause of this suffering and misery is desire.
Third - Suffering and misery can be removed by removing desire.
Fourth - Desire can be removed by following the Eight Fold Path.

(i) Right Views
(ii) Right Thoughts
(iii) Right Speech
(iv) Right Actions
(v) Right Livelihood
(vi) Right Efforts
(vii) Right Mindfulness
(viii) Right Meditation

Today having money is not a desire, it is a necessity. If we have families then we have duty to support and mange the relationships. 

The people who don't have the skills or didn't want to learn the skills have found the "first Noble Truth" from Gautama Buddha to be a good reason for it and decided not to have Right Views, Thoughts, Speech, Actions, Livelihood,Efforts, Mindfulness, Meditation or decided that they will not engage in life so they don't need to learn so much as their life will be a misery to learn all these things.

Steve Jobs is one good example of a person who was into Zen , meditations and other aspects of spirituality and probably was following the some aspects of Noble path. 

May be this was one of the reason why Steve Jobs suggested Mark Zuckerberg to go to India for a spiritual trip as once we are aware we side with the right things. As we do the right things we get what comes out of it, further on it is our thought to use the money for a greater good or to keep it for our necessities. WISHING YOU A HAPPY JOURNEY THROUGH LIFE. I personally feel that we can be blissful, engaged and successful in life.
