Thought for the day 25th of May 2011
“I think, what has this day brought me, and what have I given it?” by Henry Moore.
Every day we give and receive. It is a natural process of how life spreads around. If you want to live well and experience abundance in life you should do both things: give and receive. When we are born we generally tend more to receive, for we are too weak to do something on our own and do not understand how we should live. Our parents take care after us giving us their best attention. So, we keep on receiving until we grow up a little bit.
Then it comes a time to give. If you do not start doing that you will become an egoist who only thinks about his egoistic needs, wishes and desires. We have to learn to look around and see people whom we can help. Real satisfaction in life comes when we do good for others, not when we receive and receive and then again receive. We have to grow up and start giving. The Dead Sea is the place where water comes in, but does not come out. It only receives, but never gives. That’s why it is dead. I hope nobody of us wants to become a ‘dead sea’. So, let’s keep on giving others our attention, care, time and all other possible good things.
