Giving and Receiving

From my Inbox

This is how the Law of Giving and Receiving works.

Giving is the other side of receiving.
Therefore if you wish to receive anything in your life, you first need to give it.
It is that simple.
If you wish happiness, simply give happiness to the people around you.
If you wish love, simply give love.
If you wish friendships, joy or abundance simply give it to the people around you and you will receive loads of it.

When you withhold your giving, you are withholding your source of abundance.
You are stopping the flow of your own energy and you suffocate.
No wonder I felt joyless and dead when I stopped giving.
Sounds a little too easy, doesn't it?

Where's the catch?

The catch is that you have to give without expecting anything in return.
Giving for the sake of giving.
Only then the flow begins.
The intention behind the giving is the most important.
The intention has to be for the creation of happiness, harmony, peace and joy, as these are fundamental to life.

The reward will be there when you give from your heart and without condition.
Giving should be a joyful act, just as a child bringing a flower to his mother.
Albert Schweitzer said, "The one who gives is the one that receives most".
The easiest way to fulfill your wishes is by supporting others to achieve their wishes.

This principle is true to individuals, organizations, businesses and nations.
If you wish to be blessed with all the good things in life, learn to give a blessing to all that surrounds you.
Even a thought and silent blessing has the power to start the flow of giving and receiving.
Start practicing the Law of Giving and Receiving and watch your life become abundant and joyful.

Abundance to All

Wassalam Naz,

Good concept kan? I've been "RECEIVING for the sake of receiving" too. It definitely makes the giver feel good ;)

Hai Zendra..before I read your entry,I have been giving lots of smiles and love and help to so many be it those I am close to or those I want to kindness to others is so easily sparked..I cry easily too when I hear about other people's sad stories.

Yet I know its still not enough..I do not expect anything in return..I do it because of ALLAH.Just want HIM to know that I'm trying hard to be as kind as possible.

I thank ALLAH for always giving rezki to my immediate family..banyak or sikit..adajer rezki..Alhamdullillah syukur.

Zendra said...

Alhamdulillah.... mamasita you have such a warm smile which you shower on everyone, I think your pahala sedeqah melimpah-limpah.

Hmmm kalaulah jeling boleh dapat pahala...

Salam Zendra.First time here.Yes, I agree with such principle.If I want my children to be taught and treated well by their teachers, I have to teach and treat my students well too.

Zendra said...

Wassalam Madam Gold, I'm sure you have experienced the reality of your statement, and that is proof of your sincere intentions :D

how very true!

Zendra said...

Capt, thanks for this comment. I'm reminded of a hadith

Rasulullah s.a.w.s. said: “When a man dies, all his deeds come to a halt apart from three: ongoing charity (sadaqah jaariyah), beneficial knowledge or a righteous child who will pray for him.” (Al-Tirmidhi)

Happy 91st birthday to Tok!

I like this so much that I've sent it out as a tweet

Yes, I know that it's from an Australian site. However, that was the Home page and not the link to this article. So I'll just use your link for it works out to the same since the originator's address is given. [Third attempt to send this - ah, it's "lipacu"... or is it "tipacu"?]

Zendra said...

Hello Mat, it's been a long while since I twitted so be my guest. You've been very quiet on your Cendana blog too which I take as a very positive sign, as in being very productively busy? So it's kinda nice of you to drop by. Take care :)
