Consider the following short essay by Charles Holt.
The call to participate in the flow of life comes to us every day in innumerable ways. It’s present in all of our daily interactions, everything from giving a person a silent blessing, to giving your jacket to someone who’s cold, to giving the world your talent to sing, to giving your gift to heal and protect people as a doctor or a fireman. Life admonishes us to give without being overly concerned with what we’re receiving in return. We take charge of our lives by giving free reign to our desire to live and love fearlessly. We don’t hold others hostage or try to take control over their behavior by playing the tit-for-tat game of “I did this for you and—if you loved me—you’d do that for me.” When we reach out and participate fully in life, the understanding arises that the place we’re giving from is an inexhaustible wellspring provided by our source. No human being can give that to us and, likewise, no one can take it away. Through the universal law of reciprocity, abundance then flows into our lives with grace. We no longer have to try to manipulate or horde, for fear of not having enough. Opportunities to receive your good come forth in ways that you could never have predicted. For many, that concept is easy to think about but difficult to put into action. However, it’s very possible to practice your giving in tangible ways. By doing so, you increase your ability to give until it becomes a second-nature way of being in the world.
