If your one desire is to settle yourself comfortably on earth, you will be obliged to bury yourself in matter, that is to say, to burden yourself with more and more responsibilities, commitments and relationships, and you will not have a minute left to breathe, to reflect and to meditate.
All those who think of nothing but expanding their territory and opening branches everywhere to make as much money as possible, end up being crushed by the weight of it all; and even if you want to go and look for them under the rubble, they are nowhere to be found. They have submerged themselves thousands of miles below ground and although they call for help, reaching their hand out to you, there is nothing you can do for them.

This is where their materialistic philosophy has put them! Oh, of course, they are successful, everybody congratulates them – or rather idiots congratulate them, and not only do they congratulate them but they want to be just like them, buried, unable to breathe or see the sky.

Yes, unfortunately, this is how the majority of human beings understand life.
