Planting the Seeds of Generosity

Fall seven times and stand up eight

One way to practice generosity is to give energy where it is needed, whether that is in the form of time, money or love.

The most challenging time to be generous is when we are feeling imperfect.

While some of us have experienced being in the red financially, some would feel broke even if we had a million dollars in the bank.

Either way, as the adage goes, it is always in giving that we receive, which means that when we live in a state of lack, the very gesture we may least want to provide is the very act that could help us create the abundance that we seek.

One way to practice generosity is to give energy where it is needed.

Giving money to a cause or person in need is one way to provide power.

Giving attention, love, or a smile to another person are other acts of showing that we can offer.

After all, there are people all over the world that are hungry for love.

Sometimes when we practice generosity, we practice it conditionally.

We might be expecting to “receive back” from the person to whom we gave.

We might even become angry or resentful if that person doesn’t reciprocate.

However, trust in the natural flow of energy, and you will find yourself practising generosity with no strings attached.

This is the purest form of giving. Remember that what you send out will always come back to you.

Selflessly help a friend in need without expecting them to return the same favour in the same way, and know that you, too, will receive that support from the universe when you need it.

Besides, giving conditionally creates stress (because we are waiting with an invisible balance sheet to receive our due), giving unconditionally makes abundance.

It We give freely because we trust that there is always an unlimited supply.

Being aware of how much we are always supported by the universe is one of the keys to abundance and generosity.

Consciously remember the times you’ve received support from expected and unexpected sources. Remember anyone who has helped you when you’ve needed it most, and bless all situations that come into your life for the lessons and gifts they bring you.

Remember that all things given and received emanate from generosity. Giving is an act of gratitude. Plant the seeds of generosity through your acts of giving, and you will grow the fruits of abundance for yourself and those around you.


Life is like a bunch of roses. Some sparkle like raindrops. Some fade when there's no sun. Some just fade away in time. Some dance in many colors. Some drop with hanging wings. Some make you fall in love. The beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Life you can be sure of, you will not get out ALIVE.(sorry about that)
