Money and Manure are alike in Nature

Man has been enslaved by money.  He lives a superficial, hollow, artificial life.  This is indeed a great pity.  Man should seek to possess only as much money as is most essential for his living.  The quantity of riches one must earn can be compared to the shoes one wears; if too small, they cause pain; if too big, they are a hindrance to physical and mental comfort.  When we have more, it breeds pride, sloth and contempt for others.  In pursuit of money, man descends to the level of the beast.  Money is of the nature of manure.  Piled up in one place, it pollutes the air.  Spread it wide; scatter it over fields; it rewards you with a bumper harvest.  So, too, when money is spent in all the four quarters for promoting good works, it yields contentment and happiness in plenty.

- Baba -


O Lord, take my love, and let it flow in fullness of devotion to Thee;
O Lord, take my hands, and let them work incessantly for Thee;
O Lord, take my soul, and let it be merged in One with Thee;
O Lord, take my mind and thoughts, and let them be in tune with Thee;
O Lord, take my everything, and let me be an instrument to work for Thee.
