“When we come into community, we are recognizing the soul’s call to commune with others in actualizing more of our potential to love and to be of deep service to creation.
” The Beloved Community, by Jim Lockard
Bethlehem where Mary lived, when Magi brought gifts – the first of which was gold to fund his ministry. Jesus had a bookkeeper, which you don’t need unless you have money. He wore a seamless robe, mixed with rich and poor alike, and was supported by the women to whom he preached. Nowhere does it say he couldn’t afford something. The famous statement about it being hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven (which is within) was a comment about the attachment to wealth and social status of his time.
The Buddha was wealthy, rejecting both extreme wealth and extreme poverty for the Middle Way.
Muhammad was a wealthy trader and married a rich widow.
Lao Tzu and Chuang Tzu (Zhuang Zhou ) were both respected government officials with no indication of poverty.
Abraham, Jacob, Joseph, and Moses were all very well off.
It is time to let go of the myth of spiritual leaders as poor.
