Musings: Do Good And Give Anyway…
“He who wants to do good knocks at the gate; he who loves finds the gate open.” Rabindranath Tagore
If you are a giver and someone you have given to misuses your gift, don’t stop giving… just give to someone else. If you are a person that loves people and someone you love hates you, don’t stop loving… love someone else. Eventually, you will find people who appreciate your kindness and your love. Remember this, lots of people have been conditioned to not be able to accept purity of heart. They can’t take it in. Most times it’s not even their fault. It’s just what has happened to them on their journey in life. Tyler Perry
Over the weekend, I received an email from Tyler Perry that was so inspiring, I had to share parts of it with everyone… As a producer/director, Tyler has an incredibly busy schedule, yet, he finds time to connect with his spiritual side and share words of wisdom… May we all be blessed.
“We are here on Earth to do good to others. What the others are here for, I don’t know.” W. H. Auden
Why is this so important? Because God blesses you according to what is in your heart. If you are being kind, giving, loving and sharing because it is in your heart and you are not looking for anything in return, then that is a heart that God wants to bless. If you change who you are because you’ve been hurt, then you’ve changed the thing that God wants to bless you according to, and that is your heart. The people who hurt you are not worth that. You can lose everything that you have, but don’t let anybody change your heart. Tyler Perry
No matter our circumstances, we can find opportunities to do good, treat others with love and respect, and even just for a moment, we will forget our our own burdens and fears… More below!
“Kindness is an inner desire that makes us want to do good things even if we do not get anything in return. It is the joy of our life to do them. When we do good things from this inner desire, there is kindness in everything we think, say, want and do.” Emanuel Swedenborg
One thing I know for sure; the more we give, the more we receive. Even if, sometimes, it seems one sided, the universal intelligence and grace in the world eventually balances it all out. We do reap what we sow; if not now then later. Sow good seeds. Do good and give anyway. What about you? What are your thoughts? Are there Good deeds you missed doing this summer? How did you spend your time and what can you do this upcoming weekend? What final things do you plan to do for the upcoming holiday season? Do share! Thank you. 🙂
Positive Motivation Tip: We can always find ways to help others and commit to performing random acts of kindness… The psychic rewards are enormous. Try it!
