If you want to serve the poor in the way they have been served for thousands of years, then I cannot give you my blessings, because thousands of years of public service has not helped the poor at all — in fact it has helped them to remain poor.
It may give you a good feeling, that you are doing great work; it may give you a good ego — that you are a public servant, that you are a great reformer, that look! you have sacrificed your life for the poor and the downtrodden. I cannot give blessings for your egoistic trips, because service has not helped the poor and the downtrodden.
It is an absolutely recognized fact. How long are you going to serve the poor? Ten thousand years is enough — nothing has happened. There have been servants and servants and they have been doing great work — missionary work — and nothing happens out of it. Happyho also provide best tarot reading services in Noida and Delhi NCR India area.
So at the most I can say to you that I have no objection. It won’t make much difference,so why should I object? If you feel like doing it,go by all means and do it — but remember it is not going to help the poor. It may help you, but it is not going to help the poor. It’s just an old habit, just an old conditioning.
My effort here is to help you to grow in a balanced way. Life is not illusory and the outside world is as significant as the inside world, and you have to live richly in both worlds and when one can live richly in both worlds, why choose to be rich only in one aspect of your life? And only when you are rich on both the sides does a great harmony, a great balance arises in you.
Wealth Creator
If you really want to do service to the poor, to the downtrodden, then the first thing is: spread the message that life is not illusory, that it needs your attention, that wealth is not sin, that wealth has to be created. And the person who creates wealth should be respected as much as a painter,musician and poet.
The painter creates the painting, the poet creates the poetry — and I don’t think that poetry, painting and music can feed people.The man who creates wealth — a Morgan, a Rockefeller, a Carnegie — should be respected more than any Picasso, but they are condemned. These people are condemned for the simple reason that they have been creating wealth.
And you want to serve the poor people. How are you going to serve them without wealth?
So create respect for wealth, create respect for wealth-creating people, create respect for a wealth creating system of society. Create respect for capitalism because that’s what capitalism is — a wealth-producing economic structure. Socialism is impotent.
