Today, while driving to work, Red.fm was playing all the hits classic songs from Disney from the past 3 decades, it was really nostalgic listening to ‘Can You feel the love’ (Lion King), ‘The Distance’ (Hercules), and ‘Friend Like Me’ (Alladin)… Then suddenly this songs came up!
At first, the tune & beat is quite fun and I can feel my body moving to the rhythm. Then as I listen further to the lyrics, it made me realize that in this age of the world, we are so caught up in the materialism stuff that we forgot how our ancestors starts with bare necessities. But the world made it so hard these days with so many gadgets such as I-Phone(s), Hybrid Cars, Samsung gear & etc. Technology is so advanced these days that if you don’t have that smart phone, you will be out-mode. Luxury become a craze and premium products seems to be the crowd favor these days, just look at the amount eateries open by The Big Group in the past recent years!
Of course, there’s nothing wrong with chasing for what you want. Materialism is the proof of a person’s achievement and capabilities, as long as we stop complaining and start appreciate what we have, life can be pretty simple.
Lyrics extracted from ‘Bare Necessity’ from the Jungle Book:
And don’t spend your time lookin’ around
For something you want that can’t be found
When you find out you can live without it
And go along not thinkin’ about it
I’ll tell you something true
The bare necessities of life will come to you
