Being rich

What does ‘being rich’ really mean to us?
What if you had no material possessions, but you had the joy, the love in your heart, the smile, and the beautiful stories of your life that you could share with others? This man obviously lives in deep poverty in a Greek village on Rhodes island. But he smiled at me even if I was a stranger to him. He stands proudly next to his old, little crumbly house for one photo, and invited me inside, offering a seat for me and showing me a picture on the wall that he is very proud of. No complaining, no sadness. Not ashamed by the material poverty, not at all…. Because we are much more than that. Because he is rich inside. There are a lot of things above the physical dimensions that last longer than the material world we build around us. We can forget objects, but we never forget human connections and gestures of LOVE. What kind of richness do we need more than…?

Hungarian woman passionate about writing and photography as an expression, researching for authentic people, powerful stories of humans, cultures, rituals, Nature’s wisdom. Selfmade writer, traveller, anthropology researcher, creative. ~~~ Főként az írás és a fotó nyelvén közlő önálló utat kijáró alkotó embernek, kutatónak, kreatívnak tartom magam. Folyamatos inspirációm a különböző kultúrák, emberi sorsok és motivációk mélyebb szinten történő megismerése és megértése, valamint saját magam felfedezése, egy belső-külső tudatosság és az önazonosság fokozása.
