***(c) I KNOW FOR A FACT THAT THERE ARE HOSPITALS AND SOME RESTAURANTS, AND OTHER FOOD ESTABLISHMENTS IN AMERICA THAT THROW AWAY GOOD FOOD INSTEAD OF GIVING IT TO PEOPLE IN NEED, SUCH AS THE HOMELESS, SICK AND INFIRM, AND THOSE IN POOR AREAS. WHEN I ASK ABOUT THIS I AM TOLD THAT THE GOVERNMENTAL REGULATIONS FORBID THEM TO GIVE IT AWAY TO THOSE IN NEED BECAUSE OF IMPENDING LEGAL PROBLEMS WHICH MAY ARISE. WHAT A DAMN SHAME! I FIND MYSELF HELPING TO FEED THE STREET PEOPLE ON MY OWN ACCORD AND RESOURCES. THEY ALSO HAVE TOLD ME THEIR STORIES.
For worship is, essentially, the reverse of sin. Sin began (and begins) when we succumb to the temptation, "You shall be as gods." We make ourselves the center of the universe and dethrone God.

If being wealthy is taken to mean having the means to satisfy one's every want, all but the very poor can become rich as thou at a single stroke of a magician's wand, simply by ceasing to want more than is really necessary for sustaining life. By being content with little and not giving a rap for what the neighbours think, one can attain a very large measure of freedom, shedding care and worry in a trice.
