UNDERSTANDING THE HARMONY IN THE SOCIETY (SOCIETY BEING AN EXTENSION OF FAMILY) – The harmony in society begins with the individual. We need to ensure the right understanding of the individual as the foundation of harmony in society. With the right understanding, the need for physical facilities in the family can be ascertained. By assessing our needs correctly and by producing more than required, the family can be prosperous.
Assurance of right understanding in the individuals and prosperity in the families, understanding of human relationships leads to harmony and trust (fearlessness) in the society. When every individual is able to live harmoniously in a relationship, and the needs of all the families are ensured, fearlessness (mutual trust) in society will naturally follow. When human beings with the right understanding interact with nature, it will be in consonance with the coexistence and will be mutually enriching.

“Wealth consists not in having great possessions, but in having few wants.” – Epicurus 341 B.C. – 270 B.C., Ancient Greek philosopher, Father of Hedonism:
To attract abundance and prosperity, let’s first understand what each word means. The meaning of abundance is; a large amount or a plentiful or overflowing quantity of something. And the definition of prosperity is the condition of being affluent and successful and having good fortune. Almost everyone wants to have riches, wealth, and possessions and become prosperous and well-off.
So they look around for the road or path to prosperity and hope that they’ll find one that will lead them to fill their needs. Some will get the ” aha ” moment and understand how the law of abundance and the law of prosperity work and they will thrive. Many more will keep on searching and most will give up, believing that they are the unfortunate few who are fated to struggle and live in scarcity and impoverished life.
