The More You Give the More You Get!

I posted this recently on Not In India 2012 but felt the message important enough to repost here.  Enjoy! 🙂

I have written in the past, both on this blog and on my Mindfulness Journal, about Manifesting Dreams and Creating a New Reality. Much of what we talk about, and read about these days deals with the Laws of Attraction and attracting what we want into our lives. There are some very basic techniques about how to go about doing this. You can find innumerable posts, articles, videos, books, lectures, workshops etc. regarding this whole “business”.

But one thing which is very often overlooked, or not given enough attention, is the simple idea that “like attracts like” – meaning, if you live in a mode of want, if you worry about what you don’t have, and worry about what you do have but might not have tomorrow….if you count your pennies because you are afraid you may not have enough tomorrow, if you live “frugally” to insure your having enough “when”….then you are actually defeating the purpose. The more you live in fear of not having, the more you save for a rainy day, the more you count each penny you spend, the more you are “careful” with what you have, the more you will attract more of the same into your life. You will always be afraid and probably for the reason that you don’t have enough, you will never have enough for a rainy day, you will continue counting pennies because you will never have more than pennies to count, and you will never have “more”, rather you will continue to have ‘less”.

The story below is an example of how giving freely, even if you don’t have “enough”, of giving lovingly and without fear of “not having” what you need if you’ve given to someone else, of sharing what you have with a full heart, attracts even more into your life. People who live like this, even if it seems as if they have very little, will ALWAYS have what they need, whenever they need it. I can tell you this from personal experience as well. Once I got out of the “fear” mode and moved into the “free” mode, once I began giving lovingly, to others and myself, whenever I felt like it or needed to, I began experiencing all kinds of unexpected surprises of money finding its way into my life, free vacations coming my way, strange “coincidences” and of course no longer having to worry that I don’t have, or will not have, enough.

I recently posted the following on my Facebook page:

On my way to the train station and in the blink of an eye my travel plans have changed. As always, God and the Universe are looking out for me, and I have been sent an Amtrak ticket by an angel named M. so that I don’t have to travel by local commuter train where I would save $60 or more but would have to change trains, (I am carrying all my luggage) ,wait for trains and spend more than 2 hours riding what is less than a 1 hour actual trip. I am truly blessed! 😀

The angel was my cousin who I was going to visit and she lovingly paid for my Amtrak ticket, round trip, and did so with joy and happiness. Two days ago, she took me “just for fun” to a casino near her home. I just played out the $5 I was given as an incentive by the casino, and when I finished, she took over the machine I was playing, After a couple of minutes of play, SHE WON $1000!!!!. And that is how it works!

It has been much too long since I have been here, and although there have been very good reasons for my absence, I am still uncomfortable with it and so ask for your understanding.

Life has been full and challenging and surprising and beautiful this past year and I have been blessed, as always, with many wonderful gifts, including the gift of love.

Just one year ago I posted the following on Facebook (you can join me there as I frequently post “shorties” as they come to me, as well as lots of lovely photos).  I came across it today once again, and figured a yearly reminder would not be out of place, so am posting it here as well.

As always, my prayers are with all of you and as the Jewish New Year approaches, this is a good time to contemplate (and you don’t have to be Jewish to use the opportunity) where you were last year at this time, where you are today, how you feel about your “today” and how much of what you dreamed of last year you have succeeded in manifesting into reality !!

I leave you with my blessings for another wonderful year, and of course with the following food for thought:

Cultivating Faith is no different than cultivating a garden. The more time you spend on it,the more beautifully it will grow and bring you joy. You must weed it continually, and the weeds in the garden of Faith are fear and doubt. The water and fertilizer which allow it grow are prayer, meditation and…more than anything else, gratitude.

When it comes to living the life of one’s dreams, there are those who think they must go it alone; that they must be the early bird, know all the right people, and succeed by the sweat of their brow – and they carry the weight of the world on their shoulders.

Then there are those who have read all the books, done all the workshops, and concluded that it’s simply a matter of surrendering to a loving, conspiring Universe so that their life might be transformed by its magic – and they silently wonder why it hasn’t.

The truth is, neither are we alone, nor is knowing about the Universe and its magic enough to manifest change. The first conclusion is as self-sabotaging as it is sad, and the second is a bit like knowing exactly where the secret treasure is buried, yet never bothering to dig for it. Instead, the trick lies in knowing the difference between what one can, should and must do, versus what one can, should and must delegate to an all wise and capable Universe. Our part is the easy part.

We need only provide the spark to light the Universe’s fire; to hoist up our sails so that they can be filled with its magical winds. Yet without offering these token efforts, without assisting in these modest ways, not only do we contradict our wish to live as fully as possible, but we slide ever further away from an infinite grace that tirelessly strives to sweep us off our feet, surround us with friends, and create the life we most want.

The above is something I read some time ago, but sorry to say, I cannot give credit to the author.  It says in very clear and precise words,  things I have been writing about here for years, and so felt it appropriate to post.

If you are reading this, and by any chance are the person who wrote this, I’d really like to give credit where credit is due….not to the thoughts but to the beautiful way in which you expressed them.

with love light and joy
