Love never comes up short. Love is never self-conscious, for Love isn’t thinking of Itself, yet Love never forgets Itself. Love is Its own Self which means that Love is Everyone’s. Everyone has all of Love, not simply a portion, but All of Love.
As you enter into this season of giving, ask yourself, "Do I give from a feeling of abundance in my life?" for in truth there are many other reasons that human beings feel the need to give to one another.
For every need on your planet there is a solution. For everyone who has excess there is someone in need. Givers and receivers are matched by God so love can continue to flow unimpeded throughout the universe. So when you are in need of anything, a simple prayer will do... "Dear God, I have a need today for comfort. I have a need for this bill to be paid. I have a desire to meet someone special. I need help arriving to work on time."
I love this time of year and I’m always excited to announce the “Thank You Game,” during Thanksgiving week here in the states. Whether you celebrate Thanksgiving or not, saying “thank you” to the people in your life is not only a wonderful way to bring some unexpected kindness to others, it’s also a way to share the wealth of gratitude and to feel the power of connection.
You are never without love, never without help, and never ever without the resources that God wants you to have to assist others. God is never far from you for God is the presence and the love that dwells within you and indeed within all of creation. When you help another, God is helping another through you.
Generosity is an expansive energy. As Norman Lear told me in an interview for the book, “You receive as you give. But you have to expend energy to get energy. Electricity happens from rubbing two wires together. That’s what giving does for me.” Stinginess is constrictive. If you’re on the cheap side, don’t worry. But wake up! Realize it’s a huge drawback; take contrary action. How?
Now that we are in the midst of the holiday season it would be beneficial for us all to reflect on the art of soulful giving. A gift is a transfer of energy from one person to another. Typically the giver chooses an object, wraps it in a box, ties a ribbon around it, writes a card, and presents it. Then the receiver reads the card, undoes the wrapping, reacts to the gift, and takes that subtle energy in.
I hope you are doing well this fine day. Today the topic at hand is giving things away and the energy exchange. When I say “things” I am referring to services for the most part for this discussion. In the healing tradition of Reiki energy healing that I am a part of, the founder Dr. Mikao Usui stressed this point quite emphatically in his teachings.
Nearly all of the first month of 2010 has passed and I am wondering how you are doing with your New Year's Resolutions. Yes, almost one-twelfth of the year is behind us, and these are the days and times of our lives, whittling away, melting down, disappearing into the mist, and what have we got to show for it that we didn't have before? I mean, what progress have we made? What is different now from the way it was before, say, last year at this time?
My dear friends, we love you all so very much. Certainly all of you on this list are loving, giving, and caring souls, who long to share God's love quite freely here upon your planet earth. You long to be known as the loving souls that you are, and often you go above and beyond the call of duty to demonstrate this love. Then, just as often, many of you become frustrated if the love is not reciprocated. Dear ones, this is only human and yet since you have asked us to comment, we will.
