Giving is the Best Communication

This video shows us how giving is the best communication. It is in giving that we receive.

Francis of Assisi said,

“Make me an instrument of Your peace; Where there is hatred, let me sow love; Where there is injury, pardon; Where there is discord, harmony; Where there is error, truth; Where there is doubt, faith; Where there is despair, hope; Where there is darkness, light; And where there is sadness, joy…

“Grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; to be understood as to understand; to be loved as to love. For it is in giving that we receive; it is in pardoning that we are pardoned.”

In our world today, there are more people on the take than there are people who give unconditionally. We should strive to be among those that give.

Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh has been teaching us that the greatest gift you can give is your true presence. This is much better than giving a true present!

In fact, the first mantra is, “Darling, I am here for you!” By saying this, you are offering your true presence.

Also, Ashana sings,

Into your arms
I come
I am love
I am here for you!
I surrender
To your love.

I love this song. It is called “Into you arms.”

Giving a gift can put a smile on someone’s face, so look for opportunities to give. You may find that, like in the video, life will give back to you.

The sixth principle of the 7 Principles of Mindfulness in Healing states, “When you are ready, give back to your community.” If you are in good health and have the means, you can begin to give back to your community right away. You can volunteer in a school, church, synagog, or hospital. You can engage in preparing and serving food for the homeless.

Which ever way you give, you will surprised how much joy is will bring you.

Today, I am giving away a copy of one of my Guided Meditations to the first ten people who comment on this post.

Do you believe that the more you give, the more life will give back to you? Please share you thoughts and win a free guided meditation.
