Signs Of Life: Real Wealth Starts Within

Real wealth starts within: The only wealth that can never be taken away.

We live in so-called “lean” economic times and so many are scrambling for dollars to live fulfilling lives. But heart trumps all superficial standards and Billy Ray Harris’ example shows us that real wealth starts from the inside. The dollars will follow when you live from your heart.

“Lack” has no place in the face of authentic humanness and even the most jaded heart can find inspiration in the people in this story who are giving from their hearts in support of decency, transmuting poison to medicine, bringing goodness to our collective mix. ~ KT
