Material value is limited; spiritual value is limitless. And while daily we hear people talking about these two values, I’m not convinced that people fully understand inner value, even just the ability to rest and relax on a mental level. In modern society, material value is more prized as a path to contentment, but it is limited. The truer path to contentment is found in spiritual value, which is not concerned with material and physical things, and is limitless.
