Awake in the World

Some people give to others and keep an account of what they feel is owed back to them by the individual they help. Others give to someone today expecting they’ll receive a return from someone else when they need it in the future. Others give just for the joy of giving and devote their actions to the divine. Giving comes from one aspect of God and goes to another aspect of God. God is both the giver and receiver, the action, and the gifts. When looked at in this way, the experience brings great joy to all involved with no sense of debt or indebtedness. Discover the joy of giving wherever you go. — From Awake in the World: 108 Practice to Live a Divinely Inspired Life
