Do you think that only people who have no financial and economic problems have the time for self improvement and for meditation?
Some people do think so.
Do you agree with this line of thinking?
It is possible that this idea arose, because people who are in a better economic condition have more free time, and they want to fill it with some activity, with some hobby. If this is the case, then are they earnest enough or they are just dabbling?
Self improvement, meditation and spiritual growth do not depend on one’s economic condition.
It is true, when you are in a better financial condition it easier to afford buying books and participating in workshops. However, there are many instances of people living in difficult conditions that care about education, about improvement, and about spiritual growth, and therefore, find the means and the time for them.
The truth is that self improvement, meditation and spiritual growth do not depend on one’s economic condition. It is your mind that says they do. It does not want you to make changes and improvements, since it is afraid that this might shake its concepts and beliefs, and endanger its supremacy over you.
