Once, a very poor man came to Buddha. He asked:
*”Why am I so poor?”*
*”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?”*
*”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..*
*Then, you have a heart. With your loving heart you can wish happiness to others.. Make others feel a bundle of emotions.. Touch their lives..*
*Last treasure that you possess is your body.. With this body you can do many good things to others.. Help the people who need Help.
Are you feeling poor just because your relatives went for a vacation in Dubai and you weren’t even able to go for that cliche road trip?
Are you feeling poor because your friend has an expensive car whilst you are coping up with your two wheeler?
Or you attended a lavish wedding; where everyone was clothed in designer wear and you wore that dress that you bought last year, that one pair that you wear at every damn function?
You got my point, poverty is comparative.
