The Joy Of Giving.


There is a wonderful  mythical law of nature
that three things we crave most in life;
happiness, freedom and peace of mind
– are always attained by giving them to someone else.

When we give more we are actually communicating wholeheartedly; we feel less insecure – both emotionally and physically. Think of stored grain. If we stored grain in a godown, eventually it will rot. But plant the grain in the ground, and it will multiply. Like love which increase with exchange, generosity is something only if we give it away.

You have two hands: one for yourself, the other to help others.

Giving something to others is so much easier than trying to get it first.   Those who give more of their; time, money,  kindness, love and ideas, have more of these things because that is the balance – and balance is the natural law of life.

Besides, think of giving not as a duty, but as a privilege. We often feel the real joy of giving when we are doing something for others knowing very well that we are simply doing it for ourselves – essentially doing it for our own joy ……….. Perhaps, such is human psychology that if we don’t express our joy, we soon cease to feel it.

Remember the old adage; “We make a living by what we get. but we make a life by what we give?”   The spirit of giving is always one of personal fulfillment. It matters not the value of the gift, it is the thought of giving that provides the fulfillment. Since you get more joy out of giving joy to others, you should put a great deal of thought into the happiness that you are able to give.

Finally, life is an echo. What you send always come back. Hence goes the saying; “It is in giving that we receive.” In the long run, you get no more than what you have been willing to risk giving. Help make a difference and change the world. No one has ever become poor by giving.
