“The more good fortune you share with others, the more you have for yourself.” Zen proverb
It is a well known axiom that the more love you give, the more love you get. The more you share your good fortune with others, the more you will have for yourself.
Scarcity, like abundance is all in the mind. It is a mindset which can chain us to fear, depression and privation or which can free us to live lives of wonderful abundance. Either mindset is a valid method to allow us to learn the lessons that life has to offer. Great people know this and as a result they share their wealth, time or experience freely with others, and it returns to them tenfold!
Gary Zukav, the author of “The Seat of the Soul” says that we make a fundamental choice to live our lives through fear and doubt or through love and wisdom, the end lesson is the same but our path to it may be very different.
Our experience in life is totally dependent upon our choice. The hate and discord choice limits us because we cannot comprehend how love and abundance should flow through our lives, and as such we cannot accept that we are deserving of that love and abundance so we choose not to experience it in our lives.
Reviewing the life of the recently passed Nelson Mandela shows us that there is hope, that with a little understanding and love, with a little dialogue we can achieve great things. Revenge and hate make us blind to our own failings and perpetuate our fears and insecurities, where as with love, we take the time to trust and understand. The same amount of effort and emotion is required for both yet the results are vastly different.
