In thinking about this topic I decided that I needed a helping hand or two.
I believe that this is precisely why we are here, why we exist…to give. And, if this is indeed our purpose, as a good BuDhaGirl, I believe we must give with entirety of thought, of heart, of purpose, and of spirit.
Now I will let my besties describe their views on giving, and they do so artfully:
“It's not how much we give but how much love we put into giving.” M.T.
“We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.” W.C
“Presents are made for the pleasure of who gives them, not the merits of who receives them.” C.R.Z.
“Always give without remembering and always receive without forgetting.” B.T.
“If you want to ask one question, ask yourself, what are you giving to the universe and only that will be returned.” A.R.
Some of God's greatest gifts are unanswered prayers. G.B.
This holiday season give yourself the gift of giving. Reflect on this idea and let it color your actions. Make yourself aware of the joy you receive by giving. Cherish this joy.
