Give the thing you most want to receive. Generosity, yours and others, is a spiritual current entangling us into spiritual debt with one another.
In the village of humanity, we each possess what the other requires to make it through the day. Someone to open the door when your hands are full or spot you that penny at the cash register. Not because it’s the “right” thing to do, but because it’s the only thing to do. Like nature, our collective life depends upon feeding all the living things around us. Your life depends on it.
Give bigger when you really don’t want to.
Didn’t get the love you wanted as a child? Go give it.
Your husband cheated? Go serve dinner to the happiest couple you know.
Are you attacking yourself? Too fat, single, broke? Go stand for someone else.
Ask or invite the healing contact of others. Tell a friend you need their assistance. Dare to join a group of individuals who can offer you support. Use your vulnerability as the power move of all time, the doorway that enables you to step past protection and defense into engagement and community.
What restorative experience will you create for yourself today?
