When we give and receive equally … as a fair and equitable exchange - we create balance and equilibrium flows – it is a law of physics and a principle of nature. Giving and receiving equitably equates to fulfillment for all and when we have the goal of fulfillment for all, we are operating from the principle of balance and equilibrium and by virtue of, this creates the perfect marriage of humanness which resonates far out into the cosmos and boomerangs right back into our own ‘backyard’. IS there a greater act of love?
It is not about giving to receive i.e. I will do/give/be this (which is to give) so they will like/give/have me (which is to receive) … It is about giving to give and receiving to receive.
When we give to give and receive to receive we generate a natural flow which has the power to unify all that is out-of-balance.
The moment we give to get or receive to get we break the fair and equitable exchange and halt the flow of balance and this can manifest in our lives as fear, greed, resentment, chaos, frustration, feeling unloved/un-appreciated/ etc.
Giving and receiving is not just about gifts or money, it is about ideas, assistance, respect, trust, loyalty, joy, exchanging energy for income, paying our bills and so on.
- Can you think of any?
- Do you give and receive equitably?
- Do you pay your bills with resentment OR as a fair exchange for energy or utilities consumed?
- Do you exchange your time and energy equitably for your income OR vice versa?
Do you give compliments/time/joy/respect/trust as well as receive OR vice versa?
The first place to start giving and receiving is - self to self, then self to others then others to self. That is the flow.
What can you do today to begin the flow?
