in giving to others, i give to myself
In the spiritual universe, we only keep what we give away. Many thoughts that masquerade as self-interest are actually thoughts of self-sabotage. When I think about myself at the expense of others, I am subconsciously seeking to deny myself.
Surrendering to the ways of God is not an act of self-sacrifice, but rather the opposite. For in withholding from God, withholding my love, I am sacrificing a life of spiritual abundance and emotional freedom. Today I give my love to others, that I might feel more loved.
May I not be tempted
To withhold my love.
In surrendering to love,
I surrender to the force
That wishes for me the greatest good.
The ego speaks, but the ego lies.
May love drown out its voice today.
