I wouldn’t say I will be ever ready to quit the race of materialism. Not everyone can be a monk. But what I do agree is that along with the rat race we engage in, we should work in achieving inner peace as well. Striking a balance between both, materialism and inner peace, is I guess the key.

Minimalism, is very freeing. As I get older, I can afford to focus more on inner tranquility. I haven't read this book, but I agree that not everyone, in every stage of life can, or should abandon the material. What we could abandon is linking our identity to what we have to show off.

Actually being materialistic is a good thing not bad as it's portrayed. Because having a comfortable home a luxurious car and affordability to better treatment of our illnesses is everyone's right. One can think beyond money only if he/she has enough of it.

The Monk who sold his Ferrari is a great inspirational book. It is loaded with thought provoking recommendations that are amazing.
Heart! We will forget him!
You an I, tonight!
You may forget the warmth he gave,
I will forget the light.

When you have done, pray tell me
That I my thoughts may dim;
Haste! lest while you're lagging.
I may remember him!

The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari by Robin Sharma has proved to be a great success. This book narrates the story of a monk who gave up the materialistic world in pursuit of meditation, peace, tranquility and happiness. Living in today's world seems to be stressful however, mindfulness meditation will be of great help to us.
