The Law of Giving and Receiving Ever since I remember, I've loved to give.

I used to give my notebooks to other kids, share my clothes and even give away gifts I had received for my birthday. My mother used to criticize me and say that I was trying to buy their friendship. Maybe she was right, but I found pleasure giving and sharing my things. As I grew older, I found out that most people think like my mother. I tried to hide it by volunteering for all kinds of activities. But then again I got the message that I was wasting my time, as I "don't get paid for all the hard work". Finally, I stopped. After many years, I found myself feeling dead inside without any real joy. I realized that I had given up a source of happiness - the gift of giving. With this realization, I began practicing the Law of Giving and Receiving. Whether material things, mental concepts or just blessings. This newsletter is one of our ways of giving. It is our opportunity to share our experience and knowledge. After a year, I'm amazed at how much we have received out of it. I am grateful to all those people who allowed us to share our life with them. This is how the Law of Giving and Receiving works. Giving is the other side of receiving. Therefore if you wish to receive anything in your life, you first need to give it. It is that simple. If you wish happiness, simply give happiness to the people around you. If you wish love, simply give love. If you wish friendships, joy or abundance simply give it to the people around you and you will receive loads of it. When you withhold your giving, you are withholding your source of abundance. You are stopping the flow of your own energy and you suffocate. No wonder I felt joyless and dead when I stopped giving. Sounds a little too easy, doesn't it? Where's the catch? The catch is that you have to give without expecting anything in return. Giving for the sake of giving. Only then the flow begins. The intention behind the giving is the most important. The intention has to be for the creation of happiness, harmony, peace and joy, as these are fundamental to life. The reward will be there when you give from your heart and without condition. Giving should be a joyful act, just as a child bringing a flower to his mother. Albert Schweitzer said, "The one who gives is the one that receives most".

The easiest way to fulfill your wishes is by supporting others to achieve their wishes. This principle is true to individuals, organizations, businesses and nations. If you wish to be blessed with all the good things in life, learn to give a blessing to all that surrounds you. Even a thought and silent blessing has the power to start the flow of giving and receiving. Start practicing the Law of Giving and Receiving and watch your life become abundant
and joyful.

They implement the law of giving - receiving and always give money away. You don’t have to give with the expectation of receiving back from the same person you give to, but it will come back to you multiplied from other sources. When you sincerely give, you will receive! "Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.

Gifting has opened many hearts to enormous gratitude and compassion by allowing people to give without wanting something back in return. This opening of the heart causes grace to flow in many unexpected ways as we recognize the abundance and oneness that comes from knowing there is more than enough to give, not just receive. “Imagine for a moment what will happen to our world as more of us start giving without wanting anything back in return. Picture a world filled with love and compassion and people are helping each other for no reason—a world where everyone has more then enough. The possibilities are endless and easily within our reach. Positive change begins with you. Start practicing giving today and notice what happens.” - Hale Dwoskin Giving has been called the First Law of All Creation. It has also been said that there is a Universal Law of Giving and Receiving, or that giving and receiving are the same. To clarify, quoting Kathleen Rainbow, “For anything to function effectively, there needs to be some kind of structure. There are laws that govern our universe called Universal Laws. These laws apply to everything, everywhere at all times in our universe. These laws enable our universe to function in an orderly fashion. Without these laws there would be

chaos in the universe. By studying, understanding, cooperating, and applying these Universal Laws in our daily lives we can lead the most successful, fulfilling, abundant, joyful and healthy life possible.” In today’s modern society, human consciousness is awakening to a primary law governing the creation of abundance; 'Giving and Receiving are one and the same. To give is to receive. To receive is to give.' A conviction of universal oneness remains at the heart of this thought system, thus when we give, we do not lose what we give, rather, we receive more of what we give. Lester Levenson, the inspiration behind The Sedona Method, used to say, “In the end, you discover that the only one you have ever helped is you.” So when we give peace, we receive more peace. When we give money, we receive more money. And when we give love, we receive more love. When we accept as a core belief that giving and receiving are the same, we thrive. Whenever we give with no expectation of receiving something back in return, we are allowing the energy of the universe to flow naturally and powerfully, coming back to us many times over and in many ways. But when a gift is given to acquire something, this is really barter and similar to commerce. This attention on receiving, or getting something back, creates unseen blocks or resistance to receiving. An attitude of “getting” creates a blocked-up condition, a paralyzed state. As long as we maintain a desire for “getting” and an attitude of “getting,” we shut out the spirit of giving, and this limits the flow of good that can come to us. When we are truly giving, we are not eager for of any type of payback. If we simply give to get, we cause the flow to stop. When we give from the heart and with no expectations, we will receive much more. It was once pointed out to me that, ‘In Philippians 4:15-19, Paul speaks to the church about the power and benefits of giving and receiving, telling them that this financial would be like opening up a debit and credit account for each of them, creating an open door for God almighty to meet every need that they have.’ And the School of Metaphysics shares, ‘Life is a series of moments. The quality of your life is totally determined by the choices you make in how you spend your time. To give a gift signifies time well spent. It is effort well spent that returns to us many fold in the spirit with which the gift was given. This is according to Universal Law.’ We can see from these two poles apart, cultural viewpoints that the common thread expressed is that giving opens up the door to receiving. When we give and expect nothing in return, the Universal Law of Giving and Receiving allows us to receive something in return when we are giving via a constant exchange of energy between us and the universe. This vibrant energy defines one beautiful truth of our existence.
