When I first started working and I started making money, I was speaking with a business manager and they said, ‘You should start investing your money, what do you want to do with your money?’ And first thing was I wanted to pay off my mum’s mortgage. Every couple of months I would check in and be like, 'Do we have enough yet?’ and he would be like, 'No, not yet'… And then eventually he was like, 'You can afford to pay your mum’s mortgage now.’ I feel very lucky that I actually had the opportunity to do that. It was definitely one of the best moments of my life.
My best friend asked me to be his son's Godfather. The mom is Christian, and he's "Buddhist" in that he doesn't really ascribe to anything at the moment, but would identify as such if pressed. I'm Atheist and draw on Buddhism/Yoga/Advaita & neuroscience for my spiritual practice. I was wondering what advice you had, as my friend wants me to be an active presence in my Godson's life and actually have a hand in his spiritual training.
