Why am I so poor?
Once a poor person asked this to Buddha, “Why am I so poor?”
Buddha answered: “You are poor because you don’t practice generosity. You don’t practice charity.”
“But how can I practice charity if I don’t have anything to give?” replied the poor person
Buddha said, “You have five treasures that you can share with others.”
First, you have your face. You can share your smiles with others. It’s free. And awesome. And has an amazing impact on others.
“Second, you have your eyes. You can look at others with eyes full of love and care. Genuinely you can impact millions. Make them feel so good.”
“Third, you have your mouth. With this mouth you can say nice things to others. Talk good. Make them feel valued. Spread joy and positivity.”
“Fourth, you have a heart. With your loving heart you can wish happiness to others. Make others feel a bundle of emotions. Touch their lives.”
“Fifth treasure that you possess is your body. With this body, you can do many good things to others. Help the people who need. Help is not money. A small caring gesture can light up lives.”
“Do these.. Feel rich!”
