Income Must Balance Expenditure
It’s not just good economics when things balance. Psychological, intellectual, ethical, and spiritual energies must balance too.
You can’t put forth a robust physical effort unless you stoke yourself with fuel.
Farmers and gardeners know you reap what you sow. You would not expect triumphant success with minimal input. If you invest $100.00 to buy a car, you know the kind of car you’ll get. You wouldn’t rely on it to carry you very far. So it is with personal resources, as well. If we minimally invest in developing higher virtues, like self-possession, we can’t attain new heights. It simply won’t work.
Think about it. The ethical outlay is balanced with character development, spiritual income, higher qualities, virtues…..it doesn’t matter what words you use.
Investment must balance expenditure.
Hold on to your vision and trust the process.
