Meditation for Daily Life: Sharing
Another factor in this is that we are more likely to accept help if we are willing to give it. This meditation practice balances our internal scales and allows us to be more receptive. This applies even when we feel that our problem is that we're giving too much. In such a situation, my experience has shown that we've simply limited our giving by isolating it to specific people. When we expand this to include others, we are less tied to being a servant for the same old complainers (we know who they are) and instead, can know that we are being of value to more people. Its weird, but it works.
I once knew a person who said to me, "I feel that my life has been worth it if I've helped just one person." Whew! I don't think that I could live with myself if I only helped one person. That doesn't even break even! Life gives us so much, and we are so interdependent on one another that the help we can share is simply circulating the life blood of humanity. When we place limitations on the help that we can share, we are cutting off the flow. Sharing with others and allowing them to share with us is one of the great privileges of existence. Help yourself out by giving to someone else.
The reciprocating flow of energy with meditating on sharing will enrich and touch many peoples lives daily, including your own because what you send out will find its way back to you.
