What money is for

He was a banker, then retrained as a social worker, caring for the troubled children of Washington State. He was frugal to the point of extending the life of his shoes with duct tape, because he was secretly saving every cent he could for a noble purpose.

Alan Naiman has died of cancer, and left $11 million to charities that look after the children he loved so well.

This is what being an enlightened spirit is about. You don’t need to follow his exact actions (are allowed to have shoes without duct tape holding them together), but by following his example insofar as your circumstances permit, you can progress along the path we are all here to follow.

RIP, Alan.

About Dr Bob Rich

I am a professional grandfather. My main motivation is to transform society to create a sustainable world in which my grandchildren and their grandchildren in perpetuity can have a life, and a life worth living. This means reversing environmental idiocy that's now threatening us with extinction, and replacing culture of greed and conflict with one of compassion and cooperation.
