GIV­ING & SHAR­ING

The Star Early Edition - - TONIGHT COMICS -

“The pu­rity of the in­ten­tion to give is as pow­er­ful as the act of giv­ing. Both cre­ate an im­mense power in our en­ergy fields which brings about the man­i­fes­ta­tion of good­ness and great­ness in our own lives. The more we bless oth­ers, the more blessed we feel. The more blessed and grate­ful we feel for be­ing able to bless oth­ers, the more bless­ings we at­tract.”

Mo­ti­va­tion and com­mit­ment dis­tin­guish a mere de­sire to do some­thing from ac­tu­ally do­ing it. It’s as sim­ple as want­ing to do some­thing badly enough but more im­por­tantly un­der­stand­ing why we want to do it. Why do you want to share your gifts and tal­ents? Why do you want to care and show com­pas­sion? Why do you want to love un­con­di­tion­ally? Do you?

When we get to a point of know­ing and un­der­stand­ing our Life Pur­pose, the ba­sis of which is to up­lift hu­man­ity in var­i­ous ways, we tune out of ego and into self­less­ness and un­con­di­tional love. “What’s in it for me? “is re­placed with “How can I add value and make a sig­nif­i­cant dif­fer­ence in oth­ers’ lives?” This shift au­to­mat­i­cally trans­forms our ex­pe­ri­ence from ex­pec­ta­tion into in­spired trans­for­ma­tion. What we give for the rea­sons we give, will al­ways find its way back to us.

It is amaz­ing how when we seek for ways to add value in oth­ers’ lives, we are dis­tracted from over-en­ter­tain­ing our own chal­lenges. Giv­ing and bless­ing oth­ers with­hold us from host­ing our self-pity par­ties and be­com­ing over-em­broiled in self-cen­tred­ness
