One of the great spiritual laws is the law of giving. This law also relates to receiving because as you give you also receive. Giving and receiving are inseperable. This means that whatever you want, you must give away. Think about what you want. Then make a promise to yourself to give that away. In reality receiving and giving are are different aspects of the flow of energy in the universe. If you stop the flow of either you interfere with nature’s intellegence.
One of the best exercises you can do to understand how in tune you are with the law of giving is to make a list of your grievances: “People don’t care about me.” “People are rude to me.” “I don’t get enough love.” “People don’t listen to me.”
In every case, the grievance points to a stopping of the flow of giving and receiving. If you feel people don’t care about you, stop the absorption with your own happiness and focus on the needs of others. If you feel people are rude to you, be cordial to others. If you feel you don’t get enough love, give love to others. If you feel people don’t listen to you, listen intently to others.
By being loving toward others we find we are surrounded by love and lovingness. When we unreservedly support others, life supports us in return. The more you give, the more will return. Whatever you want, first help another to get it.
If through the act of giving, you feel you have lost something, then the gift was not truly given and will not increase. If you give grudgingly, there is no energy flowing in the giving. Your intention behind giving is critical. Your intention should always be to create happiness for both the giver and receiver. When giving is unconditional and from your heart, the return will always be proportional to the giving. The act of giving is joyful….you must feel joy in the act of giving.
In his book, The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success, Deepak Chopra writes; “One of the things I was taught as a child, and which I taught my children also, is never go to anyone’s house without bringing something – never visit anyone without bringing them a gift. You may say, “How can I give to others when at the moment I don’t have enough for myself?” You can bring a flower. One flower. You can bring a note or a card which says something about your feelings for the person you’re visiting. You can bring a compliment. You can bring a prayer. Make a decision to give wherever you go, to whomever you see. As long as you’re giving, you will be receiving. The more you give, the more confidence you will gain in the miraculous effects of this law. And as you receive more, your ability to give more will also increase.”
For now, Earlynn’s just sayin; “The law of giving and receiving is a beautiful and simple spiritual practice. Give joyfully so that your life is filled with joy.”
