A Little Greed

Greed is often considered as bad or wrong , in fact it is one of the seven deadly sins we are told to stay away from to lead a better or clean life.

But is it really so bad? I mean it is mostly the driving force of anyone’s life. But again, it can lead to wrong path and could bring chaos.

For instance, if any king or dictator desires absolute power he could bring chaos for the entire world.

On the other hand it can affect the world in a positive way. A person who aspires to become famous through his talent or good work then that greed is good and justified.

If we have a little greed to become or achieve something and work hard towards it, if everyone becomes active that way, renouncing laziness, it could do wonders for an economy.

I mean excess of everything is harmful and to lead an active and balanced life we should drive ourselves with Little Greed .

There is importance of both negative and positive energy in our universe. What brings balance or makes life possible to thrive is the balance of both energies and not the excess of any one.

    I think there’s a difference between chasing after something you want versus being greedy. Greed happens when it doesn’t matter how much you have, it’s never enough. It’s pursuing something in a ruthless way with little regard to how it might impact others. I think it crosses a certain line but I get your point. If we use our wants to drive us in a positive way. To make ourselves productive members of society – there’s nothing wrong with that. Interesting post Piyush. Thank you for making me think 🙏

      Actually, when someone is passionate to achieve something then he is little greedy towards it which keeps him going in spite of satisfactory results coming his way..but yes it depends on our perception..what’s more important it is benefitting others around us in a right way..i am glad you connected with this post…thank you so much for your thoughts

    Greed, like any behavior, is only bad when it’s engaged with to the detriment of others. That is crossing a line, IMO.
