Good points.

If we concentrate on our spiritual work, I think we're karmically given about
the amount of money that is beneficial for us. If a legitimate need arises for
more, God can provide it. If He/She doesn't, chances are that our envisioned
need is not really essential.

I've heard a number of stories of people who win the lotteries, and end up
very unhappy or, incredibly, in deep debt because they spend more than they
get. Obviously their priorities were not right. Others with right attitudes
have earned money from past lives and it doesn't spoil them. James J. Lynn,
Yogananda's disciple was an example of the latter.
