Spiritual riches

Only these are inexhaustible

March 6th 2017
A man who has made his fortune in business will not always tell you he is happy. Most often, he will find all sorts of reasons to complain. He will tell you that he is stressed, that his wife spends all his money and takes advantage of his absences to cheat on him, that his son is a good-for-nothing and his workers are lazy, that his shares have fallen on the stock exchange, that he will be ruined by his competitors, and so on. You listen to him, and after a while you begin to feel overwhelmed. Despite all his possessions, he could never convince you that life is beautiful, because he lives in fear of losing what he has. So, not only will he give you nothing, since he is already afraid that what he has will be taken away, but he will also rob you of your peace and your love of life. Whereas a man who has worked to acquire spiritual wealth understands not only that these riches are inexhaustible, but that no one can take them away from him. He will therefore always be ready to share them with you, and thanks to him, whatever your situation, you will be able to to taste the beauty and meaning of life.
