The final result of human greed for anything

A New Message from Paramahamsa Vishwananda (Exclusively Published on Facebook)

'Do you know what is the final result of human greed for anything? The result is that humans want to possess something more and more and are never satisfied. The result is they are possessed by that which they wanted to possess. What an irony. More and more greed makes one less and less an owner or a master. Rather, it makes one a loser and a slave.

But with God, greed is something that can be of use. Because whatever He touches is going to be transformed and becomes a blessing. Being greedy for God is like when a wild tiger is tamed and behaves like a cute cat. Being greedy for God is like being the fire but without the smoke, meaning pure flame. Being greedy for God is being purified from all kinds of greed, ultimately. According to the previous definition, being greedy for God ends by being possessed by Him and in this way totally transformed.'
