A small way I walk this walk is that I usually give money to homeless people because I can’t bear the idea of a fellow human being hungry.When I was in Paris recently, there was an old lady begging in front of a synagogue in the Marais, the “Jewish” part of Paris. I gave her some euros, and my tour guide said, “I never give any of them money because then I feel I would have to give everyone money.”
I said, “No, look at it this way: In the Talmud it says that ‘If you save the one, you save the many.'” He nodded, smiled and the next time we saw a homeless person, my guide gave him a euro. “I feel…rich.” He looked surprised at his own reaction.
I laughed, “Now you’re getting it – the true definition of wealth is having enough to give.”
As we were walking, he got a call for another job that will pay better than he has ever been paid before!
So, to get more money fast, give a little away — feeling rich attracts money.
I love this quote from the Abraham-Hicks folks:
“The subject of money is really two subjects: (1) money, plenty of money, and (2) absence of money, not nearly enough money. Often people assume that because they are speaking the words “I want more money,” they are speaking positively about money. When you are feeling fear or discomfort as you speak, you are not speaking of the subject of money, you are speaking of the subject of not enough money. And the difference is very important, because the first statement brings money and the second holds it away.”
