Greedy little people in a sea of distress
Keep your more to receive your less
Unimpressed by material excess
Love is free, love me say hell yes ...
Lucky me, swimmin' in my ability
Dancin' down on life with agility
Come and drink it up, from my fertility
Blessed with a bucket of lucky mobility ...
There's a river born to be a giver
Keep you warm won't let you shiver
His heart is never gonna wither
Come on everybody, time to deliver ...
What I've got, you've got to get it put it in you
Reeling with the feeling, don't stop continue ...
Realize, I don't want to be a miser
Confide wisely, you'll be the wiser ...
Give it away, give it away, give it away, now
Give it away, give it away, give it away, now ...
Give it away now
Give it away now
~ Red Hot Chili Peppers ~ Give It Away ~
Sharing what you have, showing your appreciation and giving because you truly care. Doing good ... consciously, every day. Most of us strive to do this because it makes us feel good. But do we really understand the power of giving?
I have noticed that when I simply give from my heart, with no other motive and expecting nothing in return, things shift ... specifically, how the world and I interact. My grief, worry and sorrow is replaced with joy, laughter and peace.
This to me is the real power in giving.
So I say that the power of giving comes from a selfless act. It is not tied to an event, holiday or celebration. It is just a moment when you give from your heart and soul because you want to. It is a time when I am saying to the universe, my higher power, and my subconscious mind that I care by sharing what I have ... and it’s okay to get nothing in return, and if no one notices, or if no one thank you.
Simple enough? Well, for some, not so easy. The dreaded expectations ... we all want to be appreciated and sometimes we confuse this with just giving. And this is okay, because we are all just human. Yet what I have realized is that when you give in manner, the response I get is not as rewarding. I use to feel that no matter what I did, it is not good enough, leaving me unsatisfied.
So instead just give. You will be amazed how things start to fall into place ... because those who give from the heart always get back a thousand times more. How?
The Law of Giving ... if you give you will receive in abundance.
But the catch is ~
No whats’s in it for me ...
No strings attached ...
No tax write off ...
No hidden motive ...
Shift and live your life knowing you can afford to give something even before receiving what you seek. This provides you with security, peace and serenity. This allows you to not get caught up in your wants an needs. This directs you to look at the bigger picture and not get stuck in the details.
I believe we are always provided for.
I trust we will always have what we want.
If you don’t believe me, search out countless stories about when people who simply give and what happens ... they always get more in return because they know they will always have more than what they need. The open the flow to give and receive.
So you decide how to enrich your life ... because you have already been given this opportunity, so isn't it time to make the most of it?
