Fruitful connections

Offer your assistance to someone else, and you’re likely to make that person’s day. Accept the help someone offers to you, and you’ll make that person’s day.

Giving and receiving are two sides of the same beneficial experience. And the value from that experience pours out in both directions.

Sometimes the most generous thing you can do is to give fully of yourself. Other times the most generous thing you can do is to enable someone else to experience the joy of giving.

At some level there’s hardly any distinction between giving and receiving. The interaction creates sufficient goodness to go around.

The connection is what’s important. Through that connection value flows, and grows, giving rise to higher levels of richness and fulfillment.

You benefit this very moment from thousands of years of those fruitful connections. Make the most of every opportunity to keep them going.

— Ralph Marston
