Thank you for being part of my blog community. Have you officially signed up on the email list? Here’s a great tale of wisdom offered me by an ordinary, everyday, unassuming guru a couple of decades back:
The Towering Truth about Money
Never lose sight of that fact. You can do a lot of really good things with money. How are we to build hospitals? Feed the hungry? Educate the ignorant? House the poor?
I had an ordinary, everyday, unassuming guru teach me the value of money years ago. She was a homeless woman that roamed around in my neighborhood. Bertha was her name. One day when I was feeling very kindly and prosperous, I gave her one hundred dollars (ten ten-dollar bills). She blessed each of them right in front of me.
She actually said, “bless you” to each bill as she thumbed through each of them. She then told me that she would be sharing the money with friends on the street. My jaw dropped. WOW! Now, that wasn’t what I expected from a poor, homeless person.
What she taught me was that she wasn’t poor. She was free. She cared not to get tied down to a money society. Yet she respected money for the good it could do, and she was thrilled to have some extra so she could spread the good.
Every human being innately understands that money is good if used properly. No one is permanently lost when it comes to understanding the beauty that money can bring to the planet when used appropriately.
Learn to love money for the good it can do, and I promise you more and more money will come flocking to you. I am living proof of that fact. Really! It’s not fantasy.
Hey, by the way … do you have a story about an ordinary, everyday guru who has taught you a simple lesson? Email me and I’ll share it with our blog and email community (and I’ll add a few insightful comments, if you wish).
Blessings and love to you, Rob White
Ps. Know that there are blessed dollar bills standing about you and watching attentively – they want to be called home by you.
