Generous spirit

Seek out and make the most of circumstances where you can be generous. Appreciate the times when you can put your creativity, resourcefulness, and kindness to good use.

Cherish the opportunities to make beauty, to make value, to make friends, to make a difference. Those are opportunities that add richness to life.

Consider the inner loneliness and desolation you’d experience if you could only take and not give. Remind yourself that you can choose to live with a spirit of generosity and creativity in any situation.

Experience life’s meaning through your participation in bringing that meaning into existence. Give of your time, your resources, your knowledge, your presence, and you’ll find yourself in the very heart of life’s richness.

Whatever you have, or know, or care about is of minimal consequence if you keep it all to yourself. Make it matter by offering it to life.

Go forward with a generous spirit. The more you give, the more you discover and fulfill the best of who you are.
