Ready To Be Rich Now-Just Gave Away My Last Euro!

Last Update: March 10, 2018

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

I believe that it is ok to be wealthy. God wants us to prosper. It is about being a wise steward with our money. Luke 12:48 "To whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required."

I agree, it's not wealth per se, it's the selfishness and heartlessness that may accompany the wealth. This is what makes the needle's eye your gate to Paradise.

You must be a man with a BIG heart. Not many people are willing to do what you have done.

One thing I always believe is that you will never get poorer by giving out even your last penny. The more you give, the more you get. Sounds illogical, but that what many rich men with big heart felt and experienced.

All the best to you.

Thank you Joe. Giving to the poor has always made me happy, but that was always given from my surplus. Today I gave what I could not spare and that's what put euphoria in my heart.

Finally I was able to address the needs of others, before my own. In my book that's a great victory, and one that I now know I can repeat at any time.

I too am a firm believer in "the more you give the more you get". It may not be in this life, but it will be a fact in the next. I do believe I shall soon join that group of rich men Joe! May you be one of them as well.
