2.Intellectual or ideological wealth
Spiritual wealth is the most important and should be pursued first, then comes intellectual or ideological wealth, and third is material wealth. None of the three great treasures is dispensable. A life without any one of them will be imperfect.
28.Man lives to pursue happiness, joy, freedom, and blessings. All of our activities are centered on this goal. If we ignore this goal of the existence of life, we will be putting the cart before the horse, whether it is studying for a doctorate’s degree, marrying to found a family, establishing a company, pursuing of an official career for more money, or self-cultivation. Pursue happiness, freedom, and pleasure, and fully enjoy all your blessings along your journey through life, and hence love life, love being, love nature, and feel gratitude – this is the moral of being a person and also the major value and significance of life.
29.The highest realm of life is to read extensively, have the world in mind, cure severe illness, make vigorous effort to improve situations, benefit people, and help to create a paradise where all people will live harmoniously with each other.

We should not think that what we have gained easily is of little value. Rather, that which is most readily available is most precious. We should regard them as favors from the Greatest Creator and we should take this principle as the valuable book of life.
