What would you do?

If you were suddenly independently wealthy, how would you spend your time? What positive change would you bring to the world?

This is a topic that everyone should ask themselves and really think about their answers. Being wealthy can mean different things to each individual, but in this case we will just leave it at monetary wealth. So putting the worry of money aside what would one do with themselves and what would one contribute to society as a whole. First thing that comes to mind is helping the family, and next would be helping others in the surrounding community in which you call home.

There can be many things you can contribute to your own community before you decide to take the world on and the problems that it brings. The most important thing would be to provide education to the people that seek it free of cost. Just because you can’t afford to go to the big name collages or even community colleges should not mean that you should be denied a college education. An educated public can change whole communities around that will give each individual a chance to make a decent living and in return can improve the surrounding in which they live.

The more people are educated, the more self-reliant they will become. Why would you need to go buy fish when you can go catch it yourself? Every person is capable of doing great things that can contribute to society. Free education means that people would do whats in their heart, and not worry about whether they can afford to pay for the things they they desire the most. If one wants to be a doctor, you should not have to worry about cost and debt you will be in before and after education. Anything can be achieved if one does not have to worry about such things like most of us do.

  1. When I think of the life and independence that I’ve lived for so long, my heart goes out to those who, at a very young age, are terminally ill. Unless cures are found to suppress their illnesses, they will never experience playtime, school, early romance, travels, wonders of nature, old age. My extra bucks would go for their hopes and successes. Peace.

  3. The thoughts of what might be if…. Brings a lot of great hopes and dreams and these can and have encouraged others to attempt to do things they would not have done otherwise. What would you do…. what would I do? Our grandiose imaginations there is no limit. However, not to burst the bubbles we may be in; reality, often proves just the opposite. Though there is many of those who have the means and do much ‘humanitarian projects’ to better the world. Education is great thing;; please don’t get me wrong it often lifts those out of poverty and not just monetary ones. However education alone is not enough. Money is not enough. Though some would so say “I could do with more of the green stuff” It is never what cures the ail inside. The heart is a powerful place and makes us do great things. I often wished millionaires were truly blind to their wealth and see what is truly humanitarian is to show that wealth is not a privilege but a gift to help others to be better humans. Wealth of words the same – wealth of love the same – wealth of knowledge the same and wherever one has in abundance should say let my abundance (wealth) cure your poverty. Yet to show we have a responsibility to one another we all have wealth (an abundance of some thing) to alleviate some one else poverty of the same thing. This is not a socialistic idea it is a ‘love’ idea! For truly love is the only way this will happen.

    1. I definitely agree. Love is the catalyst for change. When we do things out of love, there is no limitation on what one would do for one another. When love can reign, there is no greater wealth one can give another. When love fills the heart, everything you have is readily given without a second thought to help. Very wise words you have said! Thanks for your comment. 🙂

    Love grows when people serve.”
