Living tests inner strength
Abundance joy radiance
Nothing bad in material wealth
For many prosperity’s health

Suffering poverty starvation
An ethos of purification
Current era a great test
Is materialism best

Easy being righteous and such
Without any sense of too much
In times of great wealth
Few value a holy self

Giving your excess away
Sharing part of your pay
Philanthropy not what you save
Daily measure what you gave

Stay righteous and true
Earn grow provide too
Perhaps in this evolution
Prosper all the solution

How do you think about possessions and acquisitions?

What do material things provide and not?

How might you change your relationship to things?
