How to “Lend”:Lend Only to Give Away

For the sake of peace, follow this advice from my elder. Do not give someone else more of your own than you are prepared to lose. For example, if I have some truly EXTRA cash or a savings, I may give you some in your need. But if it is my rent money, I do not have THAT to give, because that I cannot afford to lose. I found that when I moved from giving anything to anyone at any time to giving what I could afford to lose when I could afford to lose it, I would not worry as much about it when and if it did not return as promised. I found more peace and felt less of an impulse for revenge and vengeance. If we practiced more of this simple logic, then we could avoid a lot of unnecessary conflict.
