Life is so short. We are just born and after such a short time it already comes to an end. The eternal soul separates again from the transient matter and everything begins anew. What good is it if we only help ourselves up in the perishable? Shouldn’t we better perfect ourselves in the spiritual and help others in doing so? Should we not leave aside the material trumpery of excess, knowing that in the end it will slip through our fingers like sand; knowing that „all was in vain“?
Helping people to prosperity generally seems desirable. However, helping people to gain spiritual strength is, in my opinion, the only thing that really serves the purpose of our existence, because this strength outlasts death and has an effect beyond it. For all eternity.
