Being Rich

Real life and real living are not a direct correlation to how rich you are.

Two ways to be rich include having a lot and wanting little. The latter is necessary for most of us. Many are miserable because of wants not satisfied. It is a suffering that can be defined as "thing-itis". How do we learn the secret of adjusting our wants to our needs?

There was a poor man who had an overnight guest, and as he showed him to his humble bedroom in the hayloft, he said, "If there is anything you need, just call, I'll come show you how to get along without it."

Our God is a consuming fire
And will destroy earth's temporal things.
He purifies our life
For service to the King of knigs.

Hold tightly to what is eternal
And loosely to what is temporal.
