Giving of yourself

At this site we deal with the process of becoming healed from whatever situation we’ve gotten ourselves into due to all the decisions that we have made during our life. Here at this site, we’re dedicated to help both you and I to become a mature human spirit by applying principles of self-growth or Enlightenment.

In this blog we’re now looking at the principle of “Giving of yourself”. Giving back is such a beautiful thing, in-fact it’s a powerful tool in the quiver of personal growth and enlightenment. In every area that we live in today are looking for volunteers to help in different areas, from working with the Salvation Army, homeless shelters, different community organizations, big brother or sister. There’s nothing like the feeling of being a mentor to a young person sharing and giving of yourself. If you can lift your head and look at the current situation in our world today with the pandemic, maybe giving some groceries to a neighbor, check on your elderly person just to name a few thing that we can do, all of these are noble in it own right but the giving of yourself that I’m talking about is much deeper.

The process of giving of yourself. A quote from Jack Kronfield book Buddha’s little Instruction book, goes like this “if you know the power of a generous heart, you will not let a single opportunity for giving pass you by”. Simply a powerful thing. Notice what he says, “a generous heart”. As you begin to go through your process of healing certain changes begin to happen to you and within you.  Once you began to heal and grow from that person that was broken to someone that is much stronger to someone that is able to now stand up and smile you begin to notice a different much stronger but yet a kindness, humbleness and yes, a generous heart.  I would even go a little further by saying we should try to develop the heart of a servant. Those that have a servant heart, versus those that have a generous heart, a servant heart is one that is going to serve the needs of the people, and the generous heart is a little different material.

You see someone with a generous heart are those that give but a servant is someone who servers by getting down in the mud as they say. There’s a principle in the Bible that states “Give and it shall be given to you” Luke 6:38. The giver in never not going to receive in return.  I tell people all the time, “those who give of themselves are never self-less”.

As we continue to be release from the prison of pain and hurt that, was inflicted upon us by whoever, that person or group of people that has caused you to be in that situation.

Remember from where you came from to become a person with either a gracious heart or a servant heart. I don’t know what you would call that, but I would call it personal growth, you have learned to forgive yourself, you have learned to not believe what someone says about you, their opinion of you have walked through in a place of solitude and you have gone through whatever process to gain your strength that you may see. You could stand and look at yourself in the mirror and say to yourself, I love you. I love you. You are not perfect, but I love you.

And that place where you have learned you visited where you were learned to forgive that person or those people that have caused you to be in that darkness, where you can look at them and say, you know, I don’t have any grudges against you and truly mean that from this new place in your heart, where you have gone through all the place and, you have made the adjustment to your attitudes.
