All That Glitters.
All that glitters is not gold.
We are constantly told by the media to chase after the glittering prizes - the world's idols - wealth, success, fast cars, big houses, more possessions, fame, sex, and status.....
These things are good for the economy.
They support the rich and powerful.
But they will not make us happy.
True happiness comes only from the love that we feel in our relationships - our family, our lovers, our friends.
We are only really happy when we are in love and being loved.
Love is the cause and the purpose of life.
Learn to love.
But we are constantly distracted by the winners of this world who want everything to be judged by their standards.
But all that glitters is not gold.
