Our sages teach in "Chapters of the Fathers" that the definition of a wealthy person is one who is happy with his/her lot.
Today a novel approach to this teaching dawned on me. It was based on a Rebbe Nachman story about a pauper who suddenly found a gem.
Why is someone a pauper or lacking? Possibly because his or her lot has not yet been fully manifest. Quite possibly abundance is the person's real lot. It just hasn't yet been fully manifest. In that case, true happiness with each step by step manifestation can download more and more of one's lot until s/he's wealthy. So happiness with one's lot can literally bring to wealth.
Shabbat Shalom friends :)
