I am grateful for health, shelter, warm water and electricity; a comfortable bed and pillow; for life; for my wife; for my father and mother going back to their first ancestor; we share the same first ancestor; we are brother and sister separated by time and distance; we share the same life…
the sun and moon shine equally on the just and the unjust, on the rich and the poor, on the beautiful and the ugly, on the virtuous and the non-virtuous; God loves all equally as there is no discrimination in the value of all that is created, the difference only lies in the outcomes which come from the practice of free will which we carry as gift from the Creator. Let’s use that gift with love and wisdom, with light and intelligence, with love and compassion. Let’s not waste our time in this physical shell being concerned with accumulation and consumption. Rather let’s focus on accumulating the invisible merits of spiritual pearls and Divine Breath which will sustain us eternally and infinitely in a state which is timeless and endless.
We are wealthier than we think. When we take stock of what we possess instead of what we lack we’re likely to conclude that we have so much to be grateful for.
Let’s focus on the positive in our lives and extend our wealth to those around us who have less financial, social, personal, and spiritual resources to attain more abundance and prosperity in manifesting more positive thoughts, speech, and actions. The world will be a better place. Let’s remember that 5% control 95% of global wealth.
Imagine what could be changed and improved when the delusion of this imbalance can be offset by increased awareness, charity, and compassion. Let us stop the illusion that the rich deserve their wealth and the poor deserve their poverty.
Our relationship to capital is historical and inherited; it has very little to do with personal enterprise. That’s the illusion. The poor are wealthy in their freedom and detachment; the wealthy are poor in their dependency and attachment to capital.
Who’s more prepared when it comes time to transition from this mortal coil?
