Law of Giving- Give and You Will Receive

Self centeredness is inherent. It is natural. It is survival. If you don't look after yourself, who will?  It is after all, a game of survival. Survival of the fittest. We must look after ourselves, and earn our keep.

Yet there is a maxim that states when you scatter, you receive.

When you give, you get.

Bless, and you will be blessed

Is this true? Are we fools to give?

Have we gone nuts?

Aren't you going to be taken advantage of? 

It is a strange phenomenon.

We give, and we get.

And we are to give, not with the purpose of eagerly and intentionally expecting return, but not even thinking of it and receiving will be like a pleasant surprise.

 It is the bane of living that selfishness has to prevail.

Thankfully, there are rewards for those who give and do not ask for return.

It is not a matter of reciprocation.

It has its returns in far superior form and manner. 

It is subtle.

Yet it is real.

Thankfully, there are people who realize it. 

Wayne Dyer: "It's a universal law- we have to give before we get. We must plant the seeds before we reap the harvest. The more we sow, the more we reap. And in giving to others, we find ourselves blessed. "

Ralph Waldo Emerson hit the nail on its head :

"It is one of the most beautiful compensations of life that no man can sincerely try to help another without helping himself."

 

"There is no happiness in having or getting but only in giving." Henry Drummond

 

"For it is in giving that we receive." St Francis of Assisi

 

"Giving liberates the soul of the giver." Maya Angelou

 

"He who obtains has little. He who scatters has much."  Lao Tsu

 

"Giving brings happiness at every stage of its expression. We experience joy in forming the intention to be generous. We experience joy in the actual act of giving something,
experience joy in remembering the fact that we have given." Buddha.

 "It is more blessed to give than to receive." Acts 20:35

 

 "We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give."

 

"Success in life has nothing to do with what you gain in life or accomplish for yourself. It's what you do for others."

 

"If you haven't got any charity in our heart, you have the worst kind of heart problem" Bob Hope

 

"The man who will use his skill and constructive imagination to see how much he can give for a dollar instead of how little he can get for a dollar, is sure to succeed"

 

When we do something for others, not only do we feel a sense of satisfaction, we also contribute to the flow – of love, giving, joy, abundance, prosperity.

Everybody has something to give.

True success  is  helping others help themselves

And the more you help others, they more you thrive.

Include the welfare of others in your plans for success, and you will never go wrong.

There are laws: law of attraction, law of cause and effect, law of sowing and reaping

There is also the law of giving.

It is love in action.

If it is so good, what are the ways in which you can give?

Let us count…

It has been said there are four types of giving

  • 1. Things

It has been said that to some, Love is a four letter word spelt time…..

Erich Fromm says :

"When we give we get a heightened vitality of what it means to be human. What do we give to others? We give to others all that is alive in us- our interest, understanding, knowledge, humor everything in us that's good. In so doing, we enhance the sense of aliveness in others while enhancing our own…. Through selfless giving we experience life at a deeper level and come to know the real meaning of joy."

Give. And you will receive.

Give.

Fill yourself first.

Fill your love tanks. 

Then give.
