This teaching brightens poor and warns rich.

Jetsun Milarepa says:

“In the beginning wealth makes you happy and envied;
But however much you have, it never seems enough.
In the middle miserliness tightens its knots around you: You can't bear to spend it on offerings or charity.
Your wealth attracts enemies and negative forces,
And everything you've gathered gets used up by others.
In the end, wealth's a demon that puts your life in danger. How frustrating to just look after wealth for your enemies!
I've cast off this millstone which drags us down into samsara.
I want no more of this devils' lure”.

So please draw some inspiration from the above.
