Materialistic items aren’t the main focus of life, they have so much importance in the modern world that it is difficult to realise how little these items mean. We do not need to have everything to live a happy and fulfilling life. Society is dictated through media advertisement giving false information on how to move forward as a society. God does not ask us to have these items of luxury. Living a more frugal existence doesn’t mean that you go without the basic needs; it just addresses the need for items that are unnecessary.
Their inner qualities will shine through the mortal being of a person. The question of beauty will hold little or no meaning. Yet making sure that you take care of yourself is not being vain; it is a way to ensure that you are able to give more, your own health is just as important.
The growing of a soul comes from cultivation, learning that you are not only doing what you think to be true but believing from your inner most sanctums that you serve others and receive more from this work than from materialistic items.
