I try very hard not to use clichés very often in my writing and when I do, I want them to be over the top and hyperbolic. However….
There is one that I saw on a bumper sticker in Manitou Springs, Colorado when I lived near there in 2001/2; It said:
“Want what you have, give what you need”
I found it profound then and still do.
I really try to stay conscious of doing this very thing as often as I can.
Now, don’t get me wrong….I am just as much of a conspicuous consumer as the next…I am after all a fat white american. I do try to be weary of it though.
If I have something that someone else needs and/or wants, and I have what I require, I will share it…even if there isn’t necessarily enough for two.
I have found that having less in the interim leads to more in the future.
I don’t know why it works that way. I only know that it does.
It’s like presents; I can hardly stand having a present for someone…It kills me! I want them to have it now! It’s like vicarious impatience…I want you to know what is in the box!
So, now that I have taken a lovely sentiment and tainted it for you…
Remember that you have much more than you need.
Give someone what they need with no expectations, no judgments, no requirements; it will do YOU some good and make the world better.
Energy is cyclic. Create some positivity. Do it. Do it now!
