    DY, if you want to have folks answer your posts, let alone get the masses of replies my comments engender, instead of you starting a new thread and then pathetically waiting over 10 hours with no replies before you finally answer your own OP out of desperation, you should take lessons from the master, *cough* *cough*, and follow in his proven ways.

    DaasYochid,
    Can we sign a shtar that if you ever come onto more than a million dollars (be it a yerushah, lottery or investment etc.) I get it?

    Being rich is an easy problem to solve.

    A person might forget who made him rich and say that his own might made him rich.

    A poor person could do the same.

    There is always a question which test his harder, poverty or richness.
    Keep in mind that Hashem puts you in the current state and He is the only One who can change this.

    Yeah Joseph, your second comment was true. I find it easier to be poor personally, but I don’t like relying on crutches. Maybe soon I’ll reach the level where I can be rich. And Joseph your first comment made me laugh. Good one.

    Rich people can just bribe everyone to forget they ever existed and start a new life as a janitor in a city somewhere across the world if they don’t want to be rich anymore.

    Is it too much gashmiyus to be poor? it sounds so enjoyable!

    And RY23,
    just wondering, why do you have a crown?

    Rebyid23, (doingmybest)
    No that’s not the point at all. At least my point. Its definitely easier to have a real deep relationship with Hashem when one is poor as you need to cry to Him to provide you with your needs. No one wants to be in that position. It’s a position people are placed in. The ideal is not to have to rely on such circumstances to remember Hashem constantly. I’ve had to go through some of this recently (I was told that when I reach a higher spiritual level than it won’t be this way) so it’s been on my mind…

    That doesn’t change the fact that anyone who is rich is rich by choice.

    Some people became rich by inheritance or other gift rather than by choice. Aside from that, even if it was a choice to become rich, that doesn’t demonstrate that being rich is easy, good or the right choice. And it is a nisoyon whether or not it is good.

    the גימטריא of עשרים is כתר (crown), plus 3 letters כ,ת,ר is 23. seemes that RY23 is 23 years old, maybe that’s why he put a crown

    Becoming rich isn’t the choice. Remaining rich is.

    It has been devasting or destructive for a very large portion of lottery jackpot winners.

    1,
    Although i’d love to win, statistically, 70% of winners go broke within 5 years of winning.
