The poor man asked Buddha: ” Why am I so poor “?
Buddha said: ” Because you still haven’t learned how to give “.
The poor man asked again:”But how can I give when I have nothing”?
Buddha replied: ” You have a couple of things: you have a face to give a smile, a mouth that can provide wisdom and comfort, a heart you can open for everyone, eyes that can see the good in people, and a body you can use to help others.”
We are actually not poor at all. Real poverty comes when our souls are poor.
Above all, you can give love. A hug, a smile or a kind word can go a long way for someone who needs to know that someone cares. We are all needy in that way from time to time.
“No matter how little you have, you can always find something to give.”
The happiest people are not those who get more, but those who give more.
