“I focus on spiritual wealth now, and I’m busier, more enthusiastic, and more joyful than I have ever been.”
What does “spiritual wealth” mean? For me, it’s simply time to practice the Dharma by bringing it into my awareness throughout my days. It’s how I keep my mind, moment to moment. It’s remembering to be my best in any circumstance. It’s listening to my Buddha-Nature.
That’s wealth, indeed. And you have it, too.
