I don't think inner depth or religion has anything to do with an individual's personal style preferences. Possessing costly things does not make one less spiritual, nor do we need to sacrifice something in order to attain something else. It's our own self inflicted initiations that re-inform the faulty faith that we can't have it all. In reality, there's no reason why we can't strike a well stability between material things and spiritual enlightenment. Spirituality signifies achieving personal quality in every area of one's life; from family life to career as well as inner growth.
I also feel wearing signs of God is not as important as felling the belief and applying those values on a daily basis in one's life. But, if wearing these signs reminds one to carry out spiritual teachings, then it doesn't matter where the person wears them as long as they are sincerely applied.
I think there is a lesson in every incident one faces in life and it's important to learn from these numerous experiences. Whether it means becoming emotionally stronger when a family member is unwell or something as simple as learning patience from a child - there is much to learn from everyday life's daily lessons.
My idea of pleasure is that it emanates from inner peace - when that happens, it means that one has achieved harmony of life.
