FAQ 17

Question:

I wish I could live everyday with an honest, kind and peaceful mind, clinging to nothing. What do you think from a spiritual point of view of my wish that I wanna make a lot of money from my business and live a life of luxury and ease with my family? I run my own company and I think I know that if I did my business only to satisfy my desires, it would reach a limit soon. It is so hard to just continue my company I launched, and I’ve often been made to think about it.

Answer:

It is a great thing for you to do your best in the job to make your family happy. It can be a great ascetic training for your soul to develop. But if you made money at the expense of others, it wouldn’t work out well in the end. Spiritually speaking, some negative phenomenon as much as the profit you made would happen to you later. Now, you might ask how much you are allowed to make profit. Make you conscience its standard. And to make your conscience reveal itself, you have to hold a memorial service for your ancestors with gratitude everyday.
