Money is not meant to make money, money is meant to make the earth ready for the advent of the new creation. It is to the Divine that all riches belong. It is the Divine who lends them to living beings, and it is to Him that they must naturally return. All wealth belongs to the Divine and those who hold it are trustees, not possessors. It is with them today, tomorrow it may be elsewhere. All depends on the way they discharge their trust while it is with them, in what spirit, with what consciousness in their use of it, to what purpose.


A good deed is sweeter to the heart than a sweet in the mouth.
A day spent without doing a good deed is a day without a soul.
One should keep goodwill and love constantly in his heart and let them pour out upon all with tranquillity and with equanimity.


Generosity gives and gives itself without bargaining.
Generosity is to find one’s own satisfaction in the satisfaction of others.
Generosity in the vital gives itself unstintingly.
Psychic generosity gives for the joy of giving.
I want to speak of moral generosity. To feel happy, for example, when a comrade is successful. An act of courage, of unselfishness, a fine sacrifice have a beauty in them which gives you joy. It may be said that moral generosity consists in being able to recognise the true worth and superiority of others.
