Last week I was channeling my inner Eric Butterworth and tweeted out: Poverty is not a lack of money and material possessions; it’s a state of mind. Prosperity is not an abundance of money and material possessions; it’s a state of mind.
Matthew replied and asked, “I guess it's not prosperity that we're all after then. What is the word for an abundance of money and material possessions?” That’s an interesting question, worthy of some exploration. Here’s how I would answer it…
An abundance of money and material things would be defined as “rich.” But it wouldn’t necessarily qualify as prosperous, because it lacks come of the most important aspects or prosperity, such as health, harmony, spiritual grounding, relationships and love.
That doesn’t mean money and material things don’t matter to prosperity. They do. But they’re only a part.
