It is very easy to give. It is very good to give. In fact, it is a Uni-versal Law that says it is in giving that you receive. This not new information. But if you take a closer look at the Uni-versal Law, you will see that it is a two part process. The first part is giving. It is in GIVING that you receive. But the second part is just as important, and the Law is not complete without it. Seen another way, the Law reads - it is in giving that you RECEIVE.
Receive. That is the other part of the Law that is many times looked over by Seekers on The Path. If there is anything lacking in your life and you are giving what you want away to others, be it love, prosperity or otherwise, you aren't lacking what you are giving because you aren't giving it. You are lacking it in your life because you have not remained open and receptive to receive it.
Why? Most likely because on some level you feel unworthy of the love, unworthy of the money, unworthy of the attention and so you stop the manifestation of being returned to you. Another possibility is that you feel if you did in fact get what you wanted that you will be abandoned and let down, AGAIN!
In doing this your head and your heart are headed in two different directions, and thus you remain stuck. Your heart knows that you are worthy. Your heart yearns to love. Your heart yearns for connection, contribution, growth and love. Your heart knows you live in an infinite Uni-verse and that you can create any kind of life you want. But your head, oh, your head tells a much different story! Your head pays attention to what other people are doing, your head focuses on what was and assumes that is what will be, your head observes your circumstances and is held prisoner by them.
So the creative and loving visionary that is your heart see's the possible and your head talks you into believing it's impossible. "True love isn't real", it tells you. "I'm just going to get hurt again", it says. And the most debilitating thought your head can think is, "I'm not worthy of love, happiness and prosperity."
Follow the vision of your heart. Give away your love. Show up for friends and lovers. CHOOSE WISELY who you show up for, but when you decide, go for it with all you've got! Then, once you've started to give away what you wish to receive, that is when you real work begins. That is the moment you gotta become willing, courageous and fearless enough to let love, prosperity and all the good stuff in.
Use fear to your advantage by knowing you are not your fear and that fear just means you are outside of your comfort zone and that you can now grow.
Open up, let it all in. Affirm to yourself daily that you are worthy and you are lovable. As you open up, express yourself and let yourself receive, you will be met with the right people, in the perfect time and begin to know that all is really well. When things don't work out the way you want them to, know there is a lesson and that life is working out the way you need it to, which, in the end, is always better than the way you want it to.
So, can you be courageous enough to receive today?
