about this story

For the first picture it represent to Plato’s influence on Christian thought is often thought to be mediated by his major influence on Saint Augustine of Hippo, one of the most important philosophers and theologians in the history of Christianity.
While in the second and third picture it represent as a simple life that plato wants to have. That everyday we need to be thankful for another day that we have and make our new day blessed and contented in everything.
Since plato was influence by a christianity whic is saint agustine of hippo and The Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy describes Plato as, “One of the most dazzling writers in the Western literary tradition and one of the most penetrating, wide-ranging, and influential authors in the history of philosophy"

When I write down my 10 life goals everyday, three of them,

1. I am practicing yoga, meditation and the splits everyday
2. I am going on long walks in the country up hills with Zeus and Zorro every day
3. I am teaching kids sport, dance and yoga everyday
They cost little money, so as long as I have a roof over my head, food in my mouth and can walk to work, I do not need very much to be content in my life and walk around with a smile on my face everyday.

Which means according to Plato one of the greatest philosophers in the history of mankind, I am very wealthy.
Too often we are chasing the material things in life that having an abundance of money can buy, but do these things really make you happy?
You can have all the money in the bank, huge houses, flash cars and clothes, with huge rocks on yoiur fingers, but if you are not happy or content with your life, then you are actually really poor.
What makes you happy in your life?
If it always involves having lots of money, then you will never be wealthy and you will never be happy and will remain ultimately poor.
Learn to be content with little and grateful for what you have and you will become happy and wealthy for the rest of your life.
