Life's Greatest Question (5 of 5)
Series: In God We Trust ?
As we come to the end of our series on The Treasure Principle, I want to wrap up this series by asking you the most profound question in life.
I don't know if you like questions are not, but I have been thinking about some really deep, deep questions lately like:
1. If love is blind, why is marriage such an eye opener?
2. How do they get the deer to cross at that yellow road sign?
3. What was the "best thing" before sliced bread?
4. At a movie theater, which arm rest is yours?
5. Why do most "reality" TV shows have absolutely nothing to do with reality?

Now under the category of "believe it or not," there is a place in the Baltic region where you can use your soul as collateral for a loan. In the city of Riga, there is a loan company called Kontura Loans. This company will actually loan money to absolutely anyone, no matter their age, credit history or whether they have any assets to use as collateral - because they lend against your soul. Now the maximum they will lend on what they call the "Soul Loan Program" is $500 dollars. I'm guessing the interest rate must be out of this world.
According to figures from the U.S Bureau of Chemistry and Soils, if you added up all the chemical and minerals of fluorine, silicon, manganese, zinc, copper, aluminum and arsenic - together with all the skin that covers our bodies - you are worth about $4.50 cents (depending on stocks and values in the market).
