The Habit Of Giving.


I reckon material wealth is only a component in the many aspects to success. It happen to be one of those things that probably make the journey enjoyable. Don’t you think success does include good health, a sense of well-being, fulfilling relationship, emotional and psychological stability, enthusiasm for life and peace of mind, as well?

Many people believe every relationship is one of give and take. It is. Giving engenders receiving, and receiving engenders giving. In fact, some say; “What goes out will come back. The more you give, the more you will receive in return” and so forth.

I like to think anything that is of value in life only multiplies when it is given out. That which does not multiply through giving is neither worth giving nor worth receiving. If, through the act of giving, you feel you have lost something, then the gift is not truly given and will not cause increase. And, if you give grudgingly, there is no energy behind the giving.

Thus, it is the intention behind our giving and receiving that is the most important thing. The intention should always be to create happiness for both parties – the giver and receiver because happiness is life-supporting and life sustaining.

If you want joy, do give joy to others. If you want love, then learn to show and give love to others. If you want attention and appreciation, learn to give attention and appreciation. And, if you want material affluent, help others to become materially affluent. Cultivate the habit of giving. I believe the easiest way for us to get what we want is to help others get what they want. The more you give, you will receive more and the amazing thing is, your ability to give more increases as well …………………………

You may say that I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possession
I wonder if you can
No need for greed and hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world

….. Imagine all the people
Living life in peace ……….

    Great post, Michael. I couldn’t agree more. Just knowing that there are people like you in this world means so much. One person making a difference every day when and where they can gives strength to those around them to do the same. I appreciate what you do. 🙂
