I expand my own joy giving from the Principle of Generosity.
The poet Rabindranath Tagore wrote: “I slept and dreamt that life was joy. I awoke and saw that life was service. I acted and behold, service was joy.” During the holidays, I remember the true spirit of the season, which is the spirit of giving. Giving is fundamentally based on the Principle of Generosity.
My service to others can be as simple as sharing a smile with a stranger or sharing words of gratitude. It might be as involved as volunteering at a homeless shelter or offering childcare to a harried friend.
With a full heart I willingly and lovingly share my joy with others today. As I focus on the infinite Principle of Generosity rather than seeking or getting this season, my spirit is uplifted. I experience joy and peace—the greatest gifts of the season!
