After traveling on a flight we think that we are not able to travel in business class. On the other hand if you travel in business class, sometimes you feel why we don't have a charter flight. This is where we are losing our happiness in the pursuits of the desires. These all are happening in everyone's life. Some other examples are given below.
A beggar sitting before a temple feels very happy by seeing a Rs.10/- note thinking that he earned for his breakfast. A rich man having crores of rupees thinks of multiplying it while eating his breakfast without enjoying the food he is having.
A person who struggled from the morning to evening for his livelihood will have dinner while enjoying the food with his wife and children. But a businessman whose profit that year goes to multiples of millions will be worrying while having a glass of beer alone in his room thinking why the tender that day is not in his favor? What makes the difference?
