The True and Magnificent Power of Giving
You've probably heard of the popular saying "It's better to give than to receive." But do you actually know what hidden power lies within this magnanimous act known as "giving?"
When you give something from your heart without expectinganything in return, you release a powerful force that will trigger your good deed to "bounce" back to you in amazing,and sometimes unusual ways.
I firmly believe that whatever you impart to others will come back to you a hundred fold. You are doing yourself abig favor by helping someone in need. By doing even the smallest acts of generosity, you are inviting good vibrationsto come into your life.
You would be earning the respect and love of your recipients. You know that you will always have a loyal group of friendswho would help, protect, and do anything for you just becausethey feel that they have to repay you in any way they can.Most people would have the urge or drive to reciprocate any act of kindness you've shown them.
However, this does not mean that you must expect them to repayyou. Give without any expectation of rewards. Don't do itjust because you have an ulterior motive. Give unconditionally.Give because you are happy doing it. The universe will get back to you in its own special way.
Speaking of happiness, the act of giving can summon the spirit of joy to come into your heart. How would you feel when you'vegiven something to your less fortunate neighbors? Let me tell you that nothing could brighten up my day more than hearing them express their most heartfelt gratitude and seeing their smiles extend from ear to ear.
Giving is also a healthy habit. It could prolong your life byinstilling within you an inner sense of peace and accomplishment.
Just like all things in life, giving has its limitations. Being too generous can have its toll. Your kindness might be taken advantage of and people might abuse your good intentions. Beware of individuals who are continuously seeking your aid.It's better to teach them how to solve their problems than toalways attend to their needs.
As one saying goes ...
"Give them some fish and you'll feed them for a day. Teach them how to fish and you'll feed them for a lifetime."
Lastly, here's what I consider the most important rule aboutgiving. Keep your good deeds to yourself. Don't announce to the whole world that you've donated $100,000 to your favorite charity or that you've helped save a child from a life-threatening disease.
If you really desire to give, do it secretly and in private. Some people would write "anonymous" rather than their own names when they've made a contribution. The universe smiles upon these individuals, and they will get their just rewards in due time.
Now that you know how wonderful it is to give, would you go outto the world and share your blessings?

In Search For Wealth

A Cat In The Hand Is Worth Two Birds In The Bush!
I bought this computer just over two years ago with my first venture into the world of credit cards. I'm a mature woman and have seen and done a lot in this world, but nothing could have prepared me for this. When I finished high school computers were not standard curriculum and, as was the way back then, I did the family thing with little to do in the way of secondary education. So, with my children married and raising families of their own, some maniacal little voice in my head told me I could get a credit card, buy a computer, learn how to use it, make a whole new life for myself and all would be rosey. NOT!!!

Caring in My Sisters Way: A Lesson On Judgement
Last summer, I had an acute case of bronchitis. I was downright bummed. Summer for me meant sun, sand, sea?a gazillion trips to the mall or to my friends' houses, or to another province. I was supposed to exhaust every excess fat on my calves, thighs and belly to hours and hours of fun. Instead I was stuck in the house, stuck with bronchitis.
Where Did We Miss?
Talking with friends, people I meet on a regular basis, I realized that many of us make a bigger a deal of meditation than it actually is. For some people, meditation is somewhat of a discipline, and for others it's the discipline about meditation that makes them run away from it. People, organizations, and any other form of disciplinary establishment we look to for guidance, tell us that meditation is disciplinary in its formality and requires a certain set of rules.

Somebody said you have to love what you do, but that's not necessarily true. What is true is that you have to love the opportunity. The opportunity to build life, future, health, success and fortune.
