In the grande scheme of things, when all has been shared,
when all the work has been done, man goes down alone,
man is buried alone, unless unfortunately buried in a mass grave.
Most people who have time to prepare for their death,
leave a will if they have anything of material importance.
However, for the most part, when time comes to say that final goodbye,
people look for people, not money, people.
They seek out relatives long-lost, they want to reconcile with friends,
daughters, sons, spouses and neighbors; material things don’t
seem that valuable when you’re impaired, sick, or dying.
The folly of youth is thinking there is time, the justice of time is knowing
there isn’t any to waste. Make a connection with someone you know
that needs you, reconnect with someone you know you should never
have broken away from, if they are still available to make room for
you in their life. When it comes time for the closing of the eyes,
man goes down thinking of hearts, not gold, hearts.
Where is your wealth-building leading you today, what are you
investing in that will ensure you need not worry on your last breath?
who reaches for your hand? Will there be a hand to reach for? Wealth,
are you chasing the right wealth today?
