NECESSITY OR WANT?(The Silent Musings)

As the radiant white moon hung above me over the sky giving the dark clouds around it a silver luminance and the glistening moonlight covered me , I saw a vagrant happily walking on the deserted streets. He seemed so happy that for a moment the radiance he radiated seemed brighter than the luminosity of the celestial body hung in the sky. As he walked past me, it struck me: The reason for his happiness was the fact that his wants and his necessities coincided. While needs are often satiable it’s the wants which are unquenchable. It’s the wants which give rise to jealousy, anger, rivalry which in turn give rise to even greater abominations. A person who revels in his needs does not need external validation and neither does he engage in unnecessary rivalries. He has less enemies and more friends. He isn’t jealous of anyone and neither does he crave things owned by someone else because he knows his necessities and he strives to fulfill them instead of wanting something he would never or seldom even require. A person who knows his needs also knows and respects the fact that everyone is unique. He is always happy and satisfied because he does only what his needs require him to do and not unnecessarily put efforts in forté he isn’t even himself interested in. A person who respects and listens to his needs has a crystal clear idea of his interests . He knows that real happiness lies in what he needs and not in what he wants.
