Money on the ground

I have never worried much about money even when I am not a rich person. I do not like to manage money, make transactions or keep money for the future. Even when it may seem naive, I have always thought that I will have money if I need it. I am fully aware that the best of life will not be accomplished with money.
Once I heard of a man that found money in the garbage and went to the police to give the money back Many times I have wondered what would I do if I find a big amount of money somewhere. Well I have found money on the ground several times but just coins, but once I found a bill when I was needing it
That happened some years ago I was walking by the street. I had to buy something but I did not have enough money. Suddenly I look to the ground and behind a fence of a public parking lot I saw a red bill of 5.000 chilean pesos. I walked to the corner and turn right to enter the parking. I entered walking in a normal speed so nobody could imagine I was “in a hurry” for something special. I saw the bill there like in a nest waiting for me. I picked it up and walked very slowly out of the place with my heart beating hard.

I once found several notes on the ground and took them to the police station. Several months later I was called to the Police Lost Property Office to claim the money back because no one else had!

I once experienced that heart-thudding moment. When I was still young, I was asked to pick up the rental for my aunt's house. I was given the bundle of money and I started counting. My first count shows an extra hundred and my mind started to think if I should return it or if I should take it. I got excited by the thought of it. I counted the money again and it was just right. no extra to return or to take. I did wonder what I would have done then were it otherwise. =)

I do believe, at least for me, that the universe gives me what I need in times of need. I am glad to see that it is as kind to you.

The only money I have ever found on the street was in lost wallet and I have always returned it. Coins, I find I pick up all the time.
