Do attachments and possessions cause sorrow? Should we go for greater power and greater happiness? What is the money psychology? What is the advice of the wise? Why don't we remove ignorance? What is the result?

After intellect's repeated persuasions brother hesitatingly
agreed that the attachments and possessions are to be shunned
as they cause sorrow. Brother, remembered the news about the
divorce of Bill and Melinda Gates whom he revered and felt the
anguish of their children, in spite of their huge possessions.
This reinforced the intellects claims.
Brother sets new goals for bigger happiness. The Intellect proceeds
to demolish his new idea. Intellect asks him, do people with riches
and power, having name and fame, with many serving them and
others waiting for an opportunity to serve, if given a chance,
live for ever? Don't you know the money psychology! When you don't
have you are willing to die to get some and jealous of others who
have more and feel conceited among those who have less.
The wise tell us, prepare for gaining that Knowledge which
removes ignorance, gaining which there is nothing left to be
gained. It is the anguish of all those who are pursuing or have
had a glimpse, why they wasted so much time in vain. Their
heart weeps for all those who are suffering due to their own
ignorance and are deaf to the words of the wise. Brother
agrees and yet hesitates to follow. Both suffer silently.
