Teaching us how very important it is to be kind. The Inspirational Video Everyone Should Live By
When we live and act from a place of love, we attract more of the same. When we offer love without conditions, we get it back tenfold. This is the law of attraction at its most basic, most fundamental form. Enjoy this beautiful video of the power of love and selfless giving.
I am an avid reader of spiritual books and as many of you, I often came across the life’s simple formula: ” Ask, Believe, Receive“. I think that this is a simplified formula that helps and yet can limit a lot of people. It is true, however incomplete. To me, there is a powerful element missing and that is The Power of Giving. This inspirational article about The power of Giving aims at empowering you more and at unveiling the power of true Giving. That powerful principle will change your life for the better.
Why do I affirm that Giving is an essential part of life’s formula?
1) It is written in the Bible : Luke 6: 38 “Give and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you”. This can be interpreted differently. And I would love to read your interpretation on that quote. As to me, this means that we must give with our heart and with good intentions. We must give to impact positively on others without thinking about ourselves and as this is a law, it will work naturally for us and in the process we will grow in the direction that we desire and we will fuel the creative process.
2) R. Holiwell states in one of my favourite books : Working with the Law, ” Man’s extremity is God’s opportunity”. What a powerful sentence! Allow me to repeat it : “Man’s extremity is God’s opportunity”. Once again, it could be interpreted differently. This is an extraordinary way of putting things. We are humans and as humans, we tend to feel limited sometimes when confronted to life trials and tribulations. I don’t know for you but I tend to start everything with a prayer. I put my joys, my fears and my hopes in my everyday prayer and I found that prayer is just the beginning. Yep that’s right. As Holliwell eloquently states: “when we pray we think that all that is necessary is to keep on praying” which is not true. The next step is to put our faith in action. Through your prayer, you have asked. Now your belief/ faith will depend on the action you will take. If you truly have faith that your prayer has been heard, you will take the necessary action to go out there and find what God has already given you. You will get it through people, circumstances, situations that help you materialize your prayer. Now that’s where Giving comes in. You must find it in your heart to act as if you had already received what you asked for and hence give graciously your time, energy, kindness, skills, help,etc. without expecting anything in return as you know deep inside your heart that your prayer has been granted. If you can give money, it is great but money is not the only thing you can give. Morever giving money can only have a positive effect if you give it the right way.
3) I have realized that every time I give an excellent service to my clients, I receive tons of blessings through awesome feedbacks, unexpected cheques, unexpected requests leading to unexpected remunerations, and most importantly I feel aligned with myself and what I think God expects of each one of us. I strive everyday of my life to give my best to people who truly appreciate quality work. I have learned not to waste my time with people who are not ready to put forth the effort to help themselves. As Holliwell eloquently states : ” when you see someone making an effort to help himself, that is the time to assist him/her, but do not give of [yourself] to the one who will not help himself/ herself or at least try. The latter will misuse your gift”.
Giving is truly powerful. In fact, true living starts with giving and naturally as the law is always at work, we will receive our heart’s desires as long as these desires are clear in our mind and in our heart.
