.You may be a bit skeptical, wondering what exactly you have to give. Unfortunately, inthis fastest moving world, the word ‘giving’ is so much intertwined with just financialaspect of human life. Each and every one of us has something to give everyone!Everybody has something of value for another person or community or nation or to theworld.It could be a kind word, a simple smile, some appreciation, the sharing of some specialknowledge, even a helping hand or a bit of support during a difficult emotional time.It could also mean being generous philanthropists with few billions pledged like Bill andMelinda Gates (Microsoft co-founder), Gordon and Betty Moore (Intel co-founder) andWarren Buffett (Berkshire Hathaway CEO).The act of true giving is something wonderful and amazing. With most things in thisworld, there is only a limited amount of what you can give away. Fortunately, generosityand kindness are not bound to these same material limitations.“You have something to give everyone”Your act of giving doesn’t necessarily have to be limited to an exchange of presents atChristmas time or Birthdays. You can treat every person you come into contact with assomeone who you can give a gift to.A very special act of giving can be in the form of small, personal acts of kindness. Veryoften it is not money or belongings that people need, it's the things that can't be seen, suchas advice reassurance, a kind word, compliments or a smile.The most of basic law of life is “every single act of love, kindness and generosity willmultiply and return to you many times over”. The more you give, the more you get andthe more you will feel happy. The true art of giving is to give from the heart without anyexpectation of its return or results.
What you give out is what comes back in direct proportions to the feelings you havein the act of giving.
It’s very simple. If you want to experience more joy, give joy to others, if you want morelove, learn to give love, if you want attention and appreciation, and learn to giveappreciation to others. These are some of life’s most precious gifts and they don’t costyou anything.
