The Eightfold Path
Do you know the story of the Buddha? He grew up in a family marked by wealth. He was a prince among men and knew no hardship. One day he left the palace to walk among the people in the village and he saw all the stages of life. He later met an ascetic who, though he had no true worldly possessions, had the greatest sense of contentment radiating off of him.
Buddha began to wonder and ruminate on what it is that allows humans to feel true happiness. Obviously, true happiness was not gained by wealth alone.
