Abundance

Where is abundance??

I heard a rich man in temple :
“Oh my Lord,
Please bless me with success
To win more contracts,
More riches,
More power,
more….
I will donate 10% of it
As I have been doing.”

And a poor man in his hut :
"Oh God,
Thank you for
For today’s bread,
I could share it
With hungry neighbor."

Bells of the temple rang :
Not Riches outside,
Richness within
Creates abundance.

We must have been to temple together (at least in spirit). My post is very similar, just expressed in slightly different way... I felt as if hugged by the universe.

Abundance comes from within and from a giving soul. I enjoyed the message in this piece immensely.

You and I were thinking alike when we wrote poems on this subject! It is a truth few discover.
