Can wealth and position bring comfort?

SHAFAQNA – Because of his/her nature, the human being seeks accomplishment; meaning this tendency (seeking accomplishment) is attached to every human being and is not separated from his/her creation. Power is one of the instances of accomplishment, and the human being goes after anything that increases his/her power. Now it is possible that the false desires of soul, cause the human being to make mistake, and he/she considers wealth and position as tools of power which is totally wrong. Therefore, if someone feels powerful and accomplished by having wealth or position, such a person is suffering from delusion because he/she thinks that the thing which was in his/her nature has been found; but in fact wealth and position will never bring comfort [1].
