Ready To Be Rich Now-Just Gave Away My Last Euro!
Being rich has frightened me, due to a camel.
Being rich has always frightened me! The Bible and the Quran, both mention the example of the Camel, walking thru the eye of a needle. This means, when a camel is able to enter thru a needles eye, a rich man will be able to enter Paradise. Frightening words indeed to a believer!
The other class of wealthy
Of course this refers only to a certain category of the rich, the selfish, the heartless who care only for themselves.
In my religion there's an excellent example of the opposite kind, Abu Bakr, the closest friend of our Prophet. He was one of the richest men of his time, yet he died a pauper, having given his last Dinar in charity.
I took a giant stride today!
This is the kind of selflessness I'm striving to achieve. Today I took a giant stride on that path. I gave my Last € to a beggar! This filled me with a deep sense of euphoria!
Why, you ask? Because it finally removed my fear of becoming like the rich men, to whom Paradise will be closed, as is the eye of the needle to a camel!
Happy to give an € and happier to give millions.
It dawned on me; if I can give away my last dime, when desperately poor I can surely give the poor millions, when wealthy! The lofty goals I've set for helping to relieve suffering in this world will become reality. Giving millions will make me as happy as I felt giving away my last Euro.
A heartfelt thanks to Kyle and Carson!
Thank you, from the heart, Kyle and Carson, for setting us all such a great example. I will surely pay it forward, here on WA, and in the world as well! / Warmly / Goran Bockman
