In so giving, you receive. The more you give, the more you receive. Give love and receive love. Give forgiveness and receive forgiveness. Give kindness and receive kindness. Give grace and receive grace. Encourage and receive encouragement. This act must be unconditionally and without judgment, because if you judge others or yourself harshly then it will never be as good as it could have been without that judgment. If you are giving with the attitude of expecting something in return, you may notice that it is not working as well as you would like. The Universe doesn’t work that way. If you give with a sense of expectation and attachment, then you will also experience these things.
What is it that you give to yourself or others? Think of a time when you gave something to someone that they needed. Maybe you helped them out of a difficult situation, or maybe you just smiled at them. What did it feel like? How did it make you feel? The answer to this question is at the heart of how you feel about yourself, how you show up for others, and how you engage with the world. You have a unique set of talents and skills, as well as a deep reservoir of wisdom and compassion. When you share these gifts with others they are received with gratitude, appreciation, and love. You make them feel good about themselves and their lives. And in turn, they return your kindness by giving back to you in kind.
Services rendered without reservation, without condition, come back to you tenfold. It’s not just the value of what you give that counts, but also the value of what you keep for yourself. The more you give away, the more you have in reserve. The more you keep for yourself, the less there is available for others to receive from you. Every time you perform an act of kindness, you make room for more acts of kindness by making room in your hearts and minds for those who need help and support. This is how you develop your capacity to be generous with others. You don’t have to be rich, famous or powerful. Anyone can be generous with their time and energy; anyone can make a difference in someone else’s life.
Giving from the heart without reservation does not suggest you turn a blind eye, or a deaf ear to that which is around you. It means you don’t let your emotions get in the way of what’s right and wrong. It means that you don’t give in to your fears or selfish desires at the expense of those who are less fortunate than yourself. There are times when you are called upon to give beyond your means, but you have no choice but to do so because it’s the right thing to do. You may have to give up something you want or need for yourself if it means helping someone else who has less than anyone.
Without reservation is giving, being of service without thought of payment in kind. This type of giving comes from a place of love and compassion. It is an expression of your desire to help others and make their lives better. You might not be able to give money or material things, but you can still give unconditionally by offering your time, energy, and skills. Giving is a reflection of your love for others, your compassion for their suffering, and your desire to help them experience greater happiness and well-being. It feels good to give. When you are in a giving mood, your heart is open and you feel happy and fulfilled. You may be thinking about how nice it will be for the person who receives your gift or how much you want to help someone.
Planting seeds of love and light is simply planting seeds, giving to another without expectation. You are bringing more love into your life and the lives of others. The more you give, the more you receive. You can give in many different ways. You can give your time, energy, or money to causes that are close to your heart. You can also give of yourself by listening to someone who needs a friend or comfort during their time of need.
They’re not locked into their old patterns and behaviors; they’re not afraid of making mistakes; they’re willing to take risks and make new choices. Even openness isn’t always easy. It takes courage and commitment because opening yourself up means giving up certain things that used to serve you well. Like protection from the unknown, self-righteousness, anger, or fear. You have to be willing to let go of these things so that something better can come in its place: love, compassion, acceptance, and understanding.
Openness is the gift of grace. It is the gift of being able to see what is, and what could be. This enables us to open our hearts to others, and ourselves. Also learning how to love ourselves, and others unconditionally. You must give and take in equal measure if you are going to create a world full of love, peace, and harmony. Everyone is connected, and together on this journey through life. You need each other, you need love and acceptance from each other to grow as individuals. If you want peace then you must start with yourself first. It starts with loving yourself unconditionally then you can share that love with others freely without fear or judgment
All creatures great and small evolve; expanding in love’s unconditional light. There is no place for fear, as we are all made of starlight; a part of the divine’s plan. The roots of fear grow deep and wide, but love has the power to transform your heart: Everyone is just not one or two; It is one family. All individuals in this realm are connected by love; there is no separation between you at all.
Breathe the air, and smell the sweet perfume of the many plants and trees. Listen to the sounds of birds, crickets, and other animals. Feel the touch of grass, or sand under your feet. All the things you feel are from the gifts of the Universe. In so giving, you have received far more than you could ever have imagined possible. Your heart has been filled with joy and gratitude for all that life has given to you. You see how blessed you are to be alive on this beautiful planet Earth. You feel connected to everything around you and for a moment in time, you become one with nature itself.
Exhale all that is not of love and light this day. Inhale the energy of love and light surrounding you. Repeat until you feel completely healed and renewed, or until you have reached your desired level of consciousness. In so giving, you receive. You have been given a gift of life. This gift is yours to share with the world in your way. Give freely of yourself, your heart, your time, your energy, and your passion for what you believe in.
Walk in peacefulness this day. In so giving, you are freed from the bondage of selfishness. The joy of giving is a joy that money cannot buy. It is the joy of knowing that your heart and soul are in harmony with the heart and soul of God. Take time to be still and listen to what the Universe has to say to you. Be grateful for all that you have, and give thanks so that you can share it with others. Practice patience with yourself and others, even when things are not going as planned.
