    A man in Miami turned down $1.8M for this shack because he believes that it's on sacred ground. dims.jpg That's crazy high, even for Silicon Valley and Hawaii real estate prices. And there is a lot of land here that's considered sacred.

    Personal values and beliefs over money? The world would be a better place with more like him.

    I see some high rise buildings in the background. Turning down $1.8 made a strong statement. But eventually even "scared" has a price.

    Sacred ground in Miami? Maybe it's a crystal Methodist church.

    Throw in a free condo, after they tear it down and build a high rise condo building there and you got a deal.

    Easy to say if you have money, but you can't eat values. You really expect us to believe that you'd turn it down?

    Of course I do. I've done it all my life. When I was a young man and still a practicing Christian I turned down a contract with "Word" because I didn't feel strong enough in my faith to bear witness on the scale that was expected. Throughout my career I have regularly chosen not to work with certain people or on certain gigs; giving up hundreds of thousands of dollars in income as a result. One situation in particular would have netted me enough money to buy a modest cabin in the mountains; outright.

    Every "thing" you posses can be taken away by circumstance or unscrupulous people. No circumstance, no person, zero, nothing can take your values away from you. You can only give them away of your own free will. I may yet die a pauper when my time has come but I will not ever choose to avoid poverty or hardship by denying the values that give my life meaning.

    As far as "eating"? There is always a meal to be had.
