Most people do the things that 99% of the people do and wish that they can enjoy what 1% of the people gets.
I am choosy. I don’t have many friends. So those that I consider a friend, I want you to know how cherished you are.
Everything we give, we will get back something in return.
We may not get back the dollar that we gave to the needy. But we will definitely get back more. Because when we give a dollar, it is not just a dollar that we have sacrificed.
When we give a dollar, we give our time and effort as well. We share kindness and practised compassion.
Most importantly, we give hope.
Therefore, we will definitely get back more than the dollar we gave away.
I used to have so much hatred for people who I felt did wrong to me.
I never realized how much harm I was causing myself.
Only when I learned to forgive and let go, I freed myself from that toxic state.
How much are you willing to let go?
Does this mean that we should not have anything at all?
The question should be, do you have too much? Too much for you to handle? Too much that’s disturbing your peace?
When we have too much, it’s called fats. And we always want is to be lean.
When we have too much we become scared. Afraid to lose. We become confuse. We become tired. Imagine going on a hike and carrying 10 litres of water and 5kg of snacks. Where probably you only need a fraction of that to have a enjoyable experience. When we have too much, we lose our focus. Our relationships are adversely affected. Having too much can even cause depression. Too much expectation. Too much stress.
Money. Friends. Fame. Food. Cars. Houses. Attention. Thoughts.
It’s great to have abundance, but get rid of the excess that’s secretly wearing you out.
Everyday, when we share, the biggest beneficiary is ourselves.
