Do you give to get?

"I have sensed a growing discontent amongst many who are on their spiritual path. A common theme appears to be -- ‘I have been serving God for so long and have given up so much and it has been such a struggle -- when am I going to get my reward?’"

-- Wendy Munroe

It’s interesting to become aware of how we participate in the dynamic exchange of giving and receiving. When we give, do we do so whole-heartedly? Or do we do so with the ulterior motive of wanting something in return?

It’s not wise to be always looking for a deal. The universe never short-changes us. We can afford to be generous. The Koran spells out a value-for-value principle. When something of value is given, something of value must be returned.

"It’s not how much we give but how much love we put into giving."

-- Mother Teresa

Balance exists in all things

It is a sad observation that the world works on supply and demand instead of natural principles. There are times when giving IS the gift. How do you repay someone for a kind word at a critical point in your life? How do you say thank you to the person who died in a car crash but left their organs to save other people's lives? There is a higher intelligence at work which grants these favours and rewards the sender. Giving is not the same as supplying where a payment is expected. Giving is a heart activity. Expect nothing in return and then anything that does come your way is also a gift.
