If people only shared more, and cared more, this world would not be in the situation it is in now. Greed is rife. So many people suffer at the hands of a few, who hold for themselves that which they claim to be their own.
The thinking that “as long as I’m alright, who cares about anyone else?” would probably sum things up nicely. If only there was the realisation of the warmth and heartfelt joy that is experienced when giving up what is not needed, or what will never be used, people would not hesitate in giving more to help bring peace to their soul. <>
There is nothing wrong with having wealth, as long as it is used for the right reasons. I feel money should be used modestly, as a tool, not to gratify oneself excessively. <>
When it comes to giving, it is not always a case of someone asking for your help, rather, gifts of unconditional love, where a person looks for ways to help others, where it feels “right in their heart”, can be the greatest gifts of all.
I myself know what it is like to give up a good chunk of wealth. And I know how difficult it feels to bring oneself to do it. But shortly after I had made my offering, the feelings of warmth, humility and inner recognition that I received was worth more than any monetary amount.
Share what you have with those less fortunate. Caring and sharing are two of the most beautiful gifts that can be given, however they may occur. Show to others that you care about their needs, so they have the means to put food on the table, enjoy the simple pleasures of life, and keep their families safe and well.
