There was once a junk dealer who made his living by
picking up things other people had thrown away. He
lived in a run down house on his own. Everyday he would
go out early in the morning and return late at night.
He had no relations or friends, as he was a loner. One
day he fell sick and never recovered. He passed away
and since he had no close relatives, the police entered
his house to investigate. They found the whole house
littered with old furnishings and assorted items from
his past. However, to their surprise, the police
discovered more than $100,000 in old bills packed in
small boxes throughout the house.


The question is why would a man with $100,000 cash in
his possession lived like a beggar, and chose to keep
his money stashed-away in old boxes, which were not
properly kept in a safe place?
He probably feared that he would lose his money someday
and therefore lived like a pauper. The truth of the
matter is that money is only an idea manifested on
paper with ink on it. It is only useful and of value
when it is being used. Money is not meant to be
hoarded, but rather to be used, enjoyed and circulated.
Money is neutral, and it is neither good nor bad.
Whether it is good or bad depends on how it is earned
and used.

wisdom in a happy mind."
