CHERISH YOUR GOOD FORTUNE
Wealth and fame are acquired from the good deeds and merits accumulated by us in our cycle of reincarnations. If you still have some wealth and fame in this life, including those who are able to lead a life overseas, it is considered a type of karmic reward.
Karmic rewards should be utilized gradually, the same way you should utilize your credit card. You will not feel the “pinch” when you are using it, until you receive the credit card statement and you realize, “oh no! I have spent so much!”. We have to cherish our good fortune, do not flitter it away. Do you know what it means by “cherishing one’s good fortune”? It means one should not splurge and should only spend when necessary.
