Wealth, if it comes to you, should be treated as a sacred trust.

It is not really yours, even if you have worked hard to acquire it. Karma (again, it will be good karma only if you use it rightly) has given you riches as a means of helping other people.

Use your wealth to make this a better world. Otherwise, riches will only suffocate your finer feelings.

If they make you feel superior to others, they are a delusion.

Treat all human beings as your equals. Remember, a person may be poor financially, but rich in ways that preclude the possession of money.

Appreciate others for what they are.
