Have you ever noticed that those who are truly very wealthy and successful, are always involved in charities? Many of them are not just writing checks and giving out cash to the first charity that they notice worth. Actually, they are truly involved with charities and they do this by giving their time, money, energy, setting up trusts, and getting involved in events. They really go the distance for a charity they are involved with. It is very likely that some of us may say, “Well, if I had that kind of money – I’d be giving to charity too. I’d have the time to get involved in charities.” But guess what – many of the most successful people got involved with charities long before they were rich and successful. And – just because you become rich and successful doesn’t mean you have a lot of time on your hands. Instead – many of the most successful and wealthiest people – have to make time for the charity that they are involved with.
You know! There is tremendous power that comes with the act of giving – let’s see how this power is created and how it works. How giving can provide dividends you never thought possible – and why giving doesn’t have to involve your wallet. How to achieve your goals and live the life you want by working with the power of your mind and subconscious mind is equally important. It is your will how to accomplish goals you never thought possible.
Understanding the will Of Giving
The will of giving comes from a selfless act – where you simply give from your heart. This act of giving is not tied to any special event, holiday or celebration – it is merely a time when you give from the heart because you want to share what you have, show your appreciation and give because you truly care. There should not be any other motive behind it.
When you give simply from the heart you are saying to the universe, your higher power is that you truly care and want to share what you have. You also intend to say that you don’t care if you don’t get anything in return, you don’t care if no one notices or if no one thanks you. After all that’s not why you are doing it. When you do this – the response that you get can be quite overwhelming. It will be as though a thousand hands came to help you even when you didn’t ask for help. Things start to fall into place – because those who give from the heart – will get a thousand times the amount that they give.
When you give from the heart, you don’t give with the expectation of getting something in return. You can give with the thought that you are sharing – that you are giving because you have so much. You are giving because you know and trust that you will always have what you want so you can afford to give something even before you receive what you seek.
This mere act of giving from the heart and with the full knowledge that you have plenty and with the trust that you will always have more than enough – creates a bond between you and your higher power, spirit, universe, God or whatever you want to call that part of us that we feel is connected to a higher entity. That bond is a trust – in which you are saying: “I know I will always have more than I want so I am now giving something because I want to – fully trusting that I will always have more than what I want – and therefore I can share because I want to.” When you do this the universe or the higher power responds by saying – “ah-ha – ___ believes they have so much that they are already willing to share – let’s give him/her some more so that they can continue to share.” It really does work that way.
But too often we get caught up in our wants and needs, we get selfish – only focusing on ourselves and our own little problems – which when looked at in terms of the bigger picture are really not that severe. Sure there are some of us who have some serious setbacks that we want to overcome – and I’m not trivializing that or any of your own personal concerns. However, we need to look at the needs of those of those around us as well – and then ask ourselves what we can do to help make things better. After all – it’s our world – if we don’t share how we can help each other and how we can overcome our own setbacks.
If you don’t help your neighbor – and if we don’t help our neighbor in the hour of his need – how would we ever expect him to help us at the time of our need? There would be no progress because we would all be consumed with our own little world and not take the time to help each other.
Giving is a part of human nature. That’s why when we do it we enjoy the process so much. We enjoy seeing the other person smile; we enjoy helping someone else in some small way. It is also true that all of us are not in a position to give a great deal, or to buy the ideal present or to spend a lot of money. But you can give your time. You can give something small, you can make a small gesture to the universe and your higher power – that you believe you will always have what you want and more – you believe so much that you’re willing to give and share that even before you receive it.
The Law Of Giving
You may have heard that if you give you will get in return. So you go out and you give and it seems like you get nothing. Then you say – this doesn’t work so you stop giving because you’re tired and it got you nowhere.
The law of giving exists – and it simply says that if you give you will receive in abundance. But the catch to it is that you have to give from your heart. Sure you’ve heard that phrase before – but here’s what it means. When you give from your heart – you give with no expectations. You give only because you want to give – because you want to share what you have and because you want to help somebody. I know somebody out there is going to say: “Ah- ha! So I can give to help people and I’ll get in return. Great – I’ll start giving tomorrow.” You can’t give expecting something in return. Actually, we’ve been conditioned to give so that we get something in return. It’s that old “What’s in it for me?” approach – which just doesn’t work with the Law of Giving.
Those who are successful – like Paul Newman, Bill Gates, Ted Turner, Warren Buffet – the list goes on and on – are all involved in charities – many of which they worked with before they were successful. Here, skeptics will say: “Yeah but for them it’s a great tax write off.” But their time isn’t – and that they give from their heart – no strings attached because they get nothing in return – or at least they don’t go in wanting to get something in return. Just so you know – Bill Gates so far has donated 800-million dollars to charities. Ted Turner is often remembered for billion dollars that he donated to the UN – but in 1994 he donated 200 million dollars to charities and he has his own non-profit organization fighting for endangered species. They all donate money and time – and they give from the heart. When you give – and give from the heart you send out a powerful message that says: You’re willing to share what you have and thus the more you have the more you will share. This is what is picked up your subconscious mind, the universe and your higher self. You then are drawn to situations and circumstances that allow you to have more because you will share more. The key is to give from your heart and give before you receive.
How Giving Attracts More
I have an uncle who has done quite well for himself and at age 72 he still runs his company and factory. I remember talking to him recently and he told me about the tough times he endured. He said when he started out he didn’t know how things would turn out. But he was always involved in charities and always trying to help those around him. He didn’t have a lot of money to give – but he had some time – so he got involved with helping out people in need. Sometimes by getting old clothes from family members to donate, sometimes by collecting tins of food,anything he could do. As he started making some money he would donate a portion to his religious community – he never stopped donating and to this day is still involved in charities. His son who is a very successful doctor who visits Africa once or twice a year to perform free surgery on those who are need – you could say like father like son – but the act of giving simply from their heart has catapulted them to success.
Both my uncle and his son said they give because they believed they had so much – and they just wanted to share what they had. There was no other motive. They have been rewarded ten times over – they both live very comfortable lives. I have countless stories that I can share with you about how people who give always get more in return – but the key is that they give without expecting anything – they simply give – knowing and trusting that they will always have more than what they need.
Now we all can’t perform surgery – but we can give a little of our time – since we all have they same amount – surely you can spare an hour or two on the weekends. If you go shopping – buy something small for someone – with the belief that you will always have more than you need. You can even buy something for yourself with that same belief. You can give a small amount to charity – with the complete belief that you will always have more than you need. You will enjoy buying and you will surely be happy by giving away the extra things which you bought with intention of giving away. It is all charity in disguise and charity is a bliss.
Be Happy – Charity is a bliss.
