One can sow in many ways... capital, time, love, wisdom etc. The reason why some are a public success and a private failure is because some sow more into one specific area of their life than they do into others. Everyone of us has a divine mandate to execute, you are only successful when you step into divine compliance with your divine purpose in life... everything else is just an activity, a perceived fleeting reputation and status - so much dirty rags in God's eyes. Your journey to fullfilling your mandate will determine the degree to which the heavens will open over you...
“Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.” -Galatians 6:7-8

Generosity is the most natural outward expression of an inner attitude of compassion and loving-kindness. When one desires to alleviate the suffering of others and to promote their well-being, then generosity - in action, word, and thought - is this desire put into practice. It is important to recognize the "generosity" here refers not just to giving in a material sense, but to generosity of the heart.
There is a saying in Tibetan that “at the door of the miserable rich man sleeps the contented beggar.” The point of this saying is not that poverty is a virtue, but that happiness does not come from wealth, but from setting limits to one’s desires, and living within those limits with satisfaction. _ DL

to follow their path, you’ll discover
what your true path has always been."
