"it is badly distributed wealth"
if only the fists of the prosperous would be less tight, some society's worst cancers would be healed.
"the earth provides enough to satisfy every man's need, but not every man's greed"
the philippine star july 20/09
having experienced being poor myself and seeing actual pictures of poverty every day around me, got me to look at its anatomy and structure if that is the correct term. it made me look at it straight into its eye, immersed in it, so that i may have a full understanding of it, that will lead me to dealing with it, and may gracefully live whilst at it and hold it at bay, after emerging from it.
(His grace is indeed abundant--e.g, vegetation wise,the earth brims in its natural resources no one needs to go hungry,homeless.)
(The antidote for greed.This is never ever easy. You will wrestle with this i tell you, but the outcome can ever be more than wonderful.)
These, however are not a guarantee to make you monetarily rich, er--this writing by the way,is not for those who are after making tons of money, and amassing world's goods,but is for those who are undergoing stressing
difficulties, questionings, on their current life situation--poor, miserable,broke, but thinkers. and would like to live gracefully while going through it towards sufficiency, enough, abundance (why not), and eventually the idea of giving, the act of sharing systematically, consistently, cheerfully, without grudge will be fully understood, and realized.
