The Ultra-Wealthy Aren't Happy

By Leo Gura - November 25, 2021

It’s hard for the non-wealthy to fathom how it could be that the ultra-wealthy are just as miserable, if not even more miserable, than average people.

That’s because true happiness in life comes from love and selfless. The reason life purpose makes you happy is because it’s supposed to an act of love and selfless. To have a life purpose is to devote your life in the service of others, showering the world with your love. If you don’t have that, no amount of money will fulfill you.

So what’s really being missed is a spiritual connection to life. Spirituality is just the cultivation of your love and selflessness.

And this is the fundamental problem with capitalism. Capitalism creates a relentless pressure to chase after more wealth and material success at the cost of spiritual connection. Most material resources are funneled to the top 10% or 1%, while everyone else is left in wage slavery. In such a system the ultra-wealthy are too busy hoarding resources to develop a spiritual connection while the non-wealthy are too busy working for crumbs to develop a spiritual connection. And so neither the top nor the bottom of society has any spiritual depth, with both ending up miserable. It’s a lose-lose dynamic.
