When We Give We Truly Live
Giving is living
The only thing that we truly own is our spirit. And the only thing that we can give away is the gift inside that this spirit brings with it into this world.
When we give our gift away, we feel good; we feel the energy. Fulfilled, we feel healthy, prosperous and complete – a necessary union we need between one another in order for the evolution of humanity to succeed.Click To Tweet
It is through giving that we heal ourselves and the world.
By giving we receive.
We have nothing more in our lives to do except give. By being the best at who we are, we are giving back to the universe through sharing that which we have been given. By being love, hope and positive energy in those lives that we touch, we give.
Ultimately, it is in giving to all that is in our universe; to our fellow man, to our land, and to all creatures, that our children receive. It is this cycle of life that will determine the outcome of mankind.
A short passage from my book, “America in My Father’s House” – available next Summer
Her grandfather’s home exuded all he had ever known since fate had taken him to his true place in life during the Spanish-American War. During the war, there was only darkness, but through the dark hour, he found a pureness among the Filipino people; both in their land and through their ways. It was my young mother who showed him this purest of innocence like none other. Inseparable, their bond only grew.
He gave back in return for what he’d received. His heart so full, he shared its overflowing love. Their grand home, their way of life, my mother’s wonderfully mystical childhood was but a picture of what true love really is.
Most lived in this way during Peace Time – a magical time in Baguio City, Philippines before WWII. Like her blue-eyed Grandfather, many other American men found their new home in this place of beauty. It was a time to remember – a time of peace, true love and tranquility.
If you listen closely while reading her story
…You will clearly see the magic of giving in your own life.
