Why? Because you can.
There is no other acceptable reason to share what we have with others.
Open your hand. Give.
What will you notice about Your Life when you unclench your fist?
You release all that which has weighed you down. When you share what you have — you understand how Blessed you are. Gratitude fills the space where worry and anxiety used to reside.
You see how well cared for you really are. How much you have to spare.
Perspective is everything.
You find Joy in the giving. It’s addicting- — Joy is. So you give more. And you find you still never want.
Your longings and expectations are soothed by the Gifts you give much more than by the Gifts you receive. It astounds you.
Generosity is more than a virtue. It’s a mindset — A Way Of Life.
You find all the hidden pockets of wonder in Your Soul. The Day to Day Santa Claus you never knew existed — the feeling of Magic Christmas brings to us every December. When you live a Generous Life — you walk in The Magic every moment of every day — not just a couple weeks a year.
Your eyes are open to The Need in places you never previously noticed. Your blinders are removed and you witness the suffering all around you. Your heart becomes tender and easily touched.
You want The Earth to be a better place just because you walked it for a while.
Metta infiltrates Your Aura — flowing from you to All Beings and is left behind in your wake. You leave footprints of Love wherever you go.
And you realize the most important lesson of all:
It costs you nothing to be generous.
Generosity to others is The Gift we give ourselves.
