I believe that to live a meaningful and fulfilling you need to have purpose in life.

 

In addition to that, to be satisfied you need to have health, wealth and fulfilling relationships (and spirituality).

 

Law of Attraction has taught us that all this is possible if you use it.

 

You can use the energy of God, or the Universe for example to attain your materialistic aspirations and spiritual connection with 'it'.

 

Let me know your thoughts on this and lets get the discussion going and help each other manifest our dreams.

 

You can check me out on YouTube, I just started a channel and I made a brief video on this topic.. looking forward to meeting you there, heres the link:-

 

All The Best

Although all the money, and material wealth in the world cannot make us happy if our health is compromised, having something to do and dreams to achieve while we are able to with what health we do have will make our journey on earth more pleasant to most of us.

 

Material wealth can take any form from owning multiple cars, houses, etc. to wanting to travel the world. Most of these requires money and what I am trying to say here is that one can fill the 'void' one feels with money. Some choose to do it with art some choose to do it with sports but in the end money is a deeply important aspect of our lives.

 

If you are feeling depressed, money can be a source of inspiration. Visualizing things that you can and want to do with money may be a source of excitement for you and a means to start taking action towards what you visualize and dream.

 

Being conscious of the process of manifestation and not getting attached to that which you manifest will keep you grounded in the reality that all things are perishable, and when you die, you die without all your material goods. Like everything, they are temporary, but a great way to add meaning to your life.

 

One need not neglect his/her spiritual essence as well, as a fulfilled spiritual life is mandatory for a truly happy and whole life.

 

So I invite you to meditate, meditate upon God, meditate upon your True Self but also meditate upon your physical needs, your dreams and aspirations and begin taking your life on unobstructed adventures.

 

Good Luck and Have Fun

 

Heres a video I made for you, hope you enjoy it :)

I actually wouldnt like to live a materialistic life. I would actually want to live a life with someone to give and get love, to paint and create beautiful things, to see beautiful countries and enjoy the life. I guess these things go also with less money if you can work on the way. And I would want if all these toxic substances like Lyrica, benzos and SSRIs are banned.

We have to be careful how we use language.

 

How you said you would want to enjoy your life is a description of 100% materialism. 

* Please keep reading, because this is what I first started writing, and this statement has been 100% negated as I continued to dissect this "ordeal".

 

Material is anything that takes a shape/form.

* My definition before I checked the dictionary.

 

Here are a few definitions of 'material' and it's derivative words from the online Oxford Living Dictionaries (https://en.oxforddictionaries.com):-

      Example sentences
       

materialistic

 
 

adjective

  • Excessively concerned with material possessions; money-oriented.

    ‘we're living in a highly materialistic society’

 

 

 

 

Come to think of it, having a relationship with somebody and sharing your/my life, in my own intellectually satisfying way (sort-of, I'm also figuring this stuff out), would be a balance between spiritual and materialistic means/ways.

 

I would think, even the realization of the desire to paint is a combination of material as well as spiritual aspects. That the thought of needing/wanting to do that has materialized in your own mind, however, the intrinsic material desire that you would like to have manifested according to my understanding that you would like to buy/purchase an object such as a paint brush or a canvas and paint a picture, that perhaps you would hang on a material wall by your bed or in the living room, or even gift it or sell it or send/ship it to someone... Involved the materialization of that intrinsic desire.

 

Love would most definitely involve a whole lot of spiritual materialization of that love.  And it can definitely be expressed in more and more, as a current intellectual understanding, for example by means of touching one another (your significant other) or by materialistically playing with one another or walking down the beach or having a picnic whilst having material food.

 

And having discussing this, we can realize the fact of the balance between the two. That for example when you are just thinking of that person. It is a material thought, however, I would suggest/think, that that is  has a much more spiritual basis to it, given the fact that that person you are thinking of, yet are receiving their love, is not, at the time materialistically present.

 

Wooah
