It's interesting that when we give a gift to others it often (not always) comes with expectations... We want them to like it, to appreciate it, to use it the way we think it should be used, and perhaps less obvious to ourselves, we want them to appreciate
US for giving it to them. We give with conditions.
In these "giving with conditions" moments, it's as if we have a perception of lack, where we can't just give something without needing to get something in return. We appear to empty our
cup and therefore need to fill it back up.
But what if we lived with the perception of abundance instead?
What if we could truly see and feel that our cup was actually ALWAYS overflowing, and that the act of giving
required absolutely nothing in return because there was no empty cup to fill back up? What if we simply gave whenever we were inspired by our moments of fullness, of completeness, of wholeness, of connectedness, of overflowingness? We would then inevitably
be always giving without condition.
