Wealth is a matter of consciousness. The French have a legend giving an example of this. A
poor man was walking along a road when he met a traveler, who stopped him and said: "My
good friend, I see you are poor. Take this gold nugget, sell it, and you will be rich all your
days." The man was overjoyed at his good fortune, and took the nugget home. He
immediately found work and became so prosperous that he did not sell the nugget. Years
passed, and he became a very rich man. One day he met a poor man on the road. He stopped
him and said: "My good friend, I will give you this gold nugget, which, if you sell, will make you
rich for life." The mendicant took the nugget, had it valued, and found it was only brass. So
we see, the first man became rich through feeling rich, thinking the nugget was gold.
