There are 2 paths in life - the material, the spiritual.
The material works for the body, it's comforts. It works for money, power, fame, ego.
The spiritual works for the soul, it's development. It works towards peace of mind.
The work for the body will benefit you in this world.
The work for the soul has permanent benefits carrying forward in the next life.
The work for the soul is not automatic. It needs to be worked. Knowledge of self, practice of human values, understanding one's own emotions are the keys to spiritual growth. The path of this growth leads to the destination of inner peace. It's blessings are divine. Work for your soul.
