The ultimate goal of our existence is not to get something material in life. It is to be at peace within. You may get everything you want and still may want more and more, you will remain poor, for as long as you keep on wanting. The day "you" achieve peace within, you would want no more. It is something that will make you feel like there is nothing in the universe that you want anymore; because, inner peace - if you have truly even known it; is literally "everything" that there is, that one will ever want to have.
We are actually striving for peace without even knowing it. Some think it lies in money, some say, in love. While each human being holds it within himself at all times. We just need to dig deeper into our souls and find it.
