If all we do is vanity, where is the real meaning?
Regardless of what we believe, most of what we do on Earth is finite…limited…temporary.
Striving for that job promotion, getting rich, and/or being admired by our peers are all very common desires, but they don’t last and after the final curtain falls, we can’t take them with us.
So what is real? What does last? What isn’t in vain?
Humility, generosity, compassion, and real love – these are productive gifts that build and strengthen those around us. These are actions that leave a positive mark after we are long gone, that can initiate and support mental prosperity for lifetimes to come.
