Sheri here –
When you give of your time and money, do you give with a generosity of heart, a generosity of spirit? Or are there times when you feel that you are being coerced or guilted into giving and it is done in anger or resentment?
When you give with a generosity of spirit do you notice a difference in your attitude and how you feel?
When you give with an expectation of a particular result – are you satisfied with the eventual outcome? Or are you left empty and still wanting?
I LOVE when I can give of my time and money with a generosity of spirit to a passion project. I feel filled up and things seems to work so smoothly.
The Law of Giving
In Deepak Chopra’s “The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success – A Practical Guide to the Fulfillment of Your Dreams”, he talks about The Law of Giving.
He says that “…giving and receiving are different aspects of the flow of energy in the universe. And in our willingness to give that which we seek, we keep the abundance of the universe circulating in our lives.”
He goes on to say: “The gifts of caring, attention, affection, appreciation, and love are some of the most precious gifts you can give, and they don’t cost you anything.
“When you meet someone, you can silently send them a blessing, wishing them happiness, joy and laughter. This kind of silent giving is very powerful.”
Before more and more of the “suggestions for giving” start to bombard us, consider what your passion projects are and how you can best give with a generosity of spirit.
