The Alphabet of Us: G is for Generosity… January 19, 2015

Building block G bigger

All human beings possess a heart, soul, mind and strength. Nothing of any true significance can be achieved unless this is understood.

“If I had two, I’d give you one.”

I believe that means that you require twice of what you need before you become generous.

“I only have one, but we can share.”

Very nice of you, but what happens when you don’t have one?

Generosity is a virtue we attribute to the rich, always insisting that we are poor.

But generosity is not the option to give, but rather, a fuel that keeps us believing that our circumstances are improving and will continue to do so. Without it, we insulate ourselves and convince our inner being that we are always on our last dollar.

Human beings need generosity to confirm to ourselves that we possess resource, we are not alone and we will continue to go forward.

I see it working in three parts:

1. “I never get more until I appreciate what I have.”

Just as we become disgusted with a little kid who receives a present and is dissatisfied with the color, we must realize that the same attitude in us is equally as bratty.

2. “I will never be successful if I don’t believe I can give.”

When I was assisting a young, single mother with some finance, I made only one stipulation–I requested that she reciprocate by finding someone each and every week to donate to, who was less fortunate than herself.

She refused to do so.

I ceased my aid. It was not well-placed.

3. “Give and it shall be given to you.”

If I am going to be working in the mission of Mother Nature, it is important for me to understand that people will be generous to me because they see my generosity.

At that point, they confirm in their souls that I am a good investment. They have decided that I will not squander their generosity solely on myself, but instead, find great avenues for distributing the blessing.

Generosity is not something we do when we suddenly discover ourselves with excess. Generosity is part of our “daily bread activity,” as we work and love our way into solvency.
