"The simplest antidote
to a tough day
-- Seth Godin
[Classic post from 9-12-17]
I love this line from Seth Godin. Of course, it is true. When we make a decision to give, we focus on giving and another receiving rather than our own considerations being paramount. Generosity means that we have a sufficient amount in order to give some away.
We could give away negativity, anger, resentment, but that is really still focusing on our bad day, on ourselves, our perceived problems, our worms. That would never last, nor could it be called generosity because everyone has plenty of their own. Why would they want yours?
What everyone always wants more of is love, respect, kindness, thoughtfulness, consideration, encouragement, and more. They never can get their fill of these blessed thoughts and consequential feelings. In fact, so many go through their days in search of these things and these attributes are why they do what they do, think what they think. And just like our own so-called bad day, we are searching along with them.
Within us at all times is a generous Spirit lifting us to a higher vibration where love is all there is. We have so much going on sometimes that we forget. It is in the slightest opening of the remembrance of this inner Spirit that we can let some of our generosity flow to another. Whether to one or to a thousand, it is the same. It is always, always, always received with joy no matter the initial reaction to our offering.
Our generous Spirit encourages their own generous Spirit which encourages another and another and so on.
If you did nothing else that mattered today, allowing your generous Spirit to flow out of you is all that is needed and wanted in the world.
This Is Love, Love, Love.
Spread Some Joy Today--as you remember that the generous Spirit that is always within you is loving you first and foremost, and it never, ever, stops flowing.
