Many years ago I met a man whose unique psychology helped me to shed a life of struggle and uneasiness for great happiness, for peace of mind, and for a measure of success I otherwise would not have attained.

His name was George Robert White, a man who was orphaned and impoverished at a tender age. Yet, a man whose God-given beliefs made him both a material and a spiritual millionaire at thirty.

My path to success, and to what I had considered its natural result- happiness-was the ordinary road over which most American businessmen travel, namely, endless hours of hard work, social contacts, wise investments, headaches and heartaches.

To be sure, in a materialistic sense, I had traveled a long way from my father’s farm in Nova Scotia. I had become an executive in a multi-million dollar drug firm. But where was the resulting happiness that my material gain was supposed to have afforded me?

In my private moments of mental inventory, I discovered that I had no more peace of mind, nor was I less afraid of the problems of life and death, than many years before, when I planned my road to happiness and success by the flickering lamp in my father's tiny farmhouse. The reason was, I had neglected spiritual values in my anxiety for material gain.

It took the kindly advice of George Robert White, to open the pathway for me to happiness and freedom of mind. The important lesson Mr. White taught me is this: If we are to be happy, if we are to be successful in every aspect of the word, if we are to live truly full lives, we must share ourselves, as well as our material gain, with our fellow men.

As a young man, Mr. White took over the leadership of a small soap-manufacturing plant in Boston, and throughout his career he gave away to charity a large part of his net profits.

Yet, despite his unusual business practices, Mr. White built that tiny concern into the world-famous Cuticura Corporation, and became the multi-million-dollar manufacturer of Cuticura Soap, Ointment and Shampoo.

I shall never forget Mr. White's words: "Personal success, business success, built upon materialism alone, are empty shells concealing disappointment, saddened lives," which he epitomized by saying: "Cast your bread upon the waters and it will come back in abundance."

Since Mr. White's death, I have endeavored, as his successor, to adhere to his code of ethics. Two dollars out of every three dollars profit earned by our corporation is shared with others in helping to make our nation a better place in which to live.

We, in our corporation, believe that it is not sufficient only to manufacture as fine a product as is possible-millions of dollars over the years are being shared by our corporation for the advancement of medicine and science, for chemical research, for art and for beauty.

In my personal life I have adopted Mr. White's beliefs, and, in doing so, I have become much better equipped to serve humanity.

My reward, my blessings, have come to me in the form of personal satisfaction and peace of mind that had been substantially foreign to me.

Yes, I believe that spirituality is the needed seasoning to America's materialism. But it must be that kind of spirituality that takes the form of help and service toward our fellow men.

许多年前,我遇到了一个人,他的独特的心理帮助我摆脱了挣扎和不安的生活,获得了巨大的幸福,获得了心灵的安宁,并取得了一种我本来就不会达到的成功水平。
 
他的名字叫George Robert White,是一个在贫困时期变得孤穷的人。然而,一个神的信仰使他在三十岁时成为物质和精神上的百万富翁。
 
我的成功之路,而我曾认为幸福是自然的结果,大多数美国商人旅行,即普通道路,无休止的辛勤工作,社会交往,明智的投资,头痛和心痛。
 
可以肯定的是,从物质上讲,我已经从我父亲在新斯科舍的农场走了很远。我曾在一家价值数百万美元的制药公司担任经理。但我的物质利益应该给我带来的幸福在哪里呢?
 
在我私人的心理记录中,我发现我已经不再平静了,也不再害怕生活和死亡的问题了。原因是我在物质收获的焦虑中忽略了精神价值。
 
George Robert White采纳了我善意的建议,为我打开了通往幸福和心灵自由的道路。White先生教导我的重要教训是:如果我们要快乐,如果我们要成功地在世界的每一个方面,如果我们要过真正充实的生活,我们必须分享我们自己,以及我们的物质利益,与我们的同胞。
 
作为一个年轻人,White接手了波士顿一家小肥皂制造厂的领导工作,在他的职业生涯中,他把大部分净利润都捐给了慈善事业。
 
然而,尽管他不寻常的商业行为,White先生建立了微小的关注成为世界著名的cuticura公司,并成为cuticura肥皂的数百万美元的制造商,膏、洗发水。
 
我永远不会忘记White先生的话:“个人的成功,在商业上的成功,建立在唯物主义仅是空壳掩饰失望,悲伤的生活,”他说:“是把你的面包扔在水中,它会纷纷回来。”
 
自从White先生死后,我作为他的继承人,努力坚持他的道德准则。我们公司每三美元的利润中有两美元是与其他人分享的,这有助于使我们的国家成为一个更好的生活场所。
 
在我们公司里,我们相信,仅仅生产出精细的产品是不够的,我们公司为了促进医药和科学、化学研究、艺术和美容事业,多年来一直在与数百万美元合作。
 
在我的个人生活中,我采纳了White先生的信念,这样做,我就更有能力为人类服务了。
 
我的奖赏,我的祝福,以个人的满足感和内心的平静来到我面前,这对我来说是非常陌生的。
 
是的,我相信灵性是美国唯物主义所需要的调味品。但它必须是那种以帮助和服务于我们同胞的精神形式。
