I Am Here to Give – 8

If we want to get out of our misery and pain, we should give. We should help and serve.

The fail-safe formula for true happiness is to make others happy. We do good and we end up feeling good. And because we feel good, we end up doing more good, and feeling even better.

To love is to get to a stage where the only selfish desire we have is the desire to feel good by doing good. To love is to reach that stage where we give freely, willingly, not only what we have, but also what we don’t know we have until the moment we give. Even without having, we give, just to discover that we always have more than enough to give.

We must share what we have, as well as what we don’t have. Not sharing what we have is selfish, but not sharing our needs is also selfish, because we deprive others of opportunities to give.

Again, the fail-safe formula for true happiness is to make others happy. We make people happy by doing something for them, but we can make them happier by allowing them to do something for us.

It is a dynamic process.

Once we evolve and become better human beings, we feel called to serve, and because we serve, we become better human beings.

I Am Here to Give – 7

The richest person is not the one who has the most, but the one who desires the least.

The richest person is not the one who accumulates ceaselessly, but the one who gives generously.

The richest person is the one who fears the least and enjoys the presents she bestows and receives.

IMG_3095

Fear leads to accumulation, and restricts our willingness to give and share. To enter the kingdom of Heaven, one must have no fear of leaving everything behind. Conscious that, in the end, we can’t take anything material with us, we give generously, and in the process of giving we experience immense freedom. We relinquish our material possessions as a preparation for the transition from this life to the next.

I Am Here to Give – 6

We are sent forth to be the presence of the Holy Spirit in the world.

Let us consent to be used by God whenever, wherever, and however God wants to use us.

Let us develop the habit of saying yes to the call.

Let us be God’s presence in the world.

IMG_3084

“Use me, dear Lord. Use me to touch hearts with your love. Use me to show the abundant life and love you give. Use me to promote your healing peace and unity. Use me to make this world a better place. Here I am, Lord. Use me.” 

Let us remember that while we are giving, we are receiving.

Let us be thankful for the gifts others are giving us.

Let us make sure that they know that they are giving us a gift, just for allowing us to be there for them, to listen to them, to serve them.

Let us make sure that they know that they have impacted our lives, and that they have planted seeds in us that will be with us forever.

I Am Here to Give – 5

The people that really impact our lives are the people that show that they care. They are the ones who make themselves available to be used by God.

In every interaction, even the ones that last just a few seconds, we plant some seeds. Every time we meet someone we have a choice regarding the type of seeds that we will plant. If we are unselfish, mindful of other people’s needs, and present to listen and to love with a soft heart, we will be planting good seeds. But if we are caught in the “us versus them” illusion, if suspicion, prejudice, judgment, fear, and greed make us retreat to selfishness, we will be bringing the fast growing  seeds of the hardened-heart weed to the heart fields. Don’t do that! Choose to plant only the good seeds. Every time you meet other people, take the time to plant the seeds of kindness, love and peace in their hearts. These seeds will produce healthy plants that will last a lifetime.

IMG_3082

Let us give our time and attention, make ourselves totally available, and show that we care. Let us be present, listen deeply, and speak gently, softly, with love.

I Am Here to Give – 4

The best exercise for a healthy heart is to reach down and lift others up.

We are here on Earth, to reach out and touch hearts with love and kindness, only to have our own hearts touched and transformed in the process. At the end of our physical existences, it will not be what we have gotten, but what we have given that will matter. We will be remembered not by the assets we accumulated but by the impressions we left on the hearts we touched.

IMG_3075

It is by giving that we receive. It is by bestowing love, compassion, forgiveness, patience, and kindness that we receive the same gifts back. In all relations, be them among individuals or nations, it is by making others feel safe and at peace that we experience the same safety and peace.

The more we give, the more we receive. The measure we use to give will always be the same measure used to give back to us. If we want to receive more, we must give more.

“And, in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make.” ~ The Beatles

I Am Here to Give – 3

We were given the gifts that we were given to give them away.

We must not interrupt the flow.

IMG_3107

We must keep giving our time, talent, treasure and touch to those in need.

We must combine our strengths with our passions, combine what we are good at with that we feel called to do, and use our gifts to make this brokenhearted world a better place.

We must reach a point in our lives where we don’t desire anything for ourselves, except the opportunity to look at others, see their needs, and give completely, without conditions, and without reservations.

We must reach a point where we don’t have any selfish desires besides the desire to connect, communicate and commune with all.

I Am Here to Give – 2

The prayer of Saint Francis contains a powerful reminder: ‘It is giving that we receive.”

Although I have known this for a long time, I have not made “giving” my main job. Now that I am more aware of the universal flow of giving and receiving, I have decided to be more proactive in my giving.

I feel that a lot was given to me, and that it is my duty to give the gifts that I was brought here to give. I feel that I must not hold anything back, because giving my gifts is my mission in life; that’s what I was brought here to do, and my job is to find ways of giving.

So, I am now paying more attention. I am actively looking for opportunities to give. I am trying to be more generous. I am trying to go around with the firm intention to give.

IMG_3106

Receiving is inextricably connected to giving, and we should be careful not to interrupt this flow. We all want to receive, and in order to receive, we must give. The more we give, the more we receive.

So, share your gifts, whatever they may be. Bless others with your creation. Share your smile, your art, your music, your laughter, your generosity, your optimism, your lessons.

Be patient. Be kind. Be loving. Be giving.

I Am Here to Give – 1

This has been a lot in my heart lately. It is not a new idea for me. I have embraced it before. But, recently, it came to me again, with greater power this time. I felt it deeply, and it made much more sense to me. I feel I am beginning to understand it more completely now.

I am here to give.

Please, click and watch this video… Give until it hurts

The Child – 2

Look who I met when I arrived at the beach this morning!

IMG_3074

“… this little child, about two or three years old, came running to me with open arms and a big smile on his face.”

The Forces of the Universe took me directly to someone’s artistic creation that was left there, I am convinced, just to remind me of what had already been revealed to me:

“Everything is and will always be OK. Don’t worry about anything. Just be grateful, and give the gifts that you were brought here to give. Don’t hold them back. And know that you are loved.”

///

Thank you, Grand Mystery, for the many messages, and for guiding me to pay attention to them. Thank you for opening my eyes and ears, and allowing me to understand.
