How can I give when I do not have anything?

The poor man asked the Buddha: “Why am I so poor?”

The Buddha replied: “Because you still have not learned to give.”

The poor man asked again: “How can I give when I do not have anything?”

The Buddha replied, “You have a few things:

A face with which you can give a smile,

A mouth which can give wisdom and comfort to others,

A heart you can open up to others,

The eyes that can observe the good in others,

The body that you can use to help others. “

In fact we are not poor at all, the real poverty is the poverty of the spirit.
