Giving is the only way to gratitude and gratitude is the only way to peace.

Spiritual enlightenment from a one-sentence blog comment?

A bug's life closeup photo
A bug’s life is a constant need to stay alive (at least until propagation has been completed)

 

In the giving, receiving.

In the receiving, change.

In change, growth.

In growth, peace.

Spiritual enlightenment from a one-sentence blog comment?

The first sentence was a spontaneous blog comment reply.

Then in a flash, the second sentence. Then the third, etc.

Then the enlightenment – a trusted path to peace.

A cup of coffee or $50 grand?

I’m well-versed at both ends of the spectrum, finding more joy on the front line

 

A cup of coffee or $50 grand?

The conversation between the executive and the line worker yesterday entered the philosophical realms of what is worth more.

Mailing a $50,000 donation check to charity or being the volunteer to hand the fresh cup of coffee to the homeless woman.

Being close enough to deliver, appreciate, and receive immediate joy in her face?

Or…

Visualizing from your living room how many people’s lives are changed from your massive donation.

Tough call.

I propose we should know our answer intimately.

A great investment for high ROI?

Giving.

Giving has always paid high dividends.

The energy we put out into the world we get back.

ROI?

Will It Last?

Will the joy we felt yesterday, on Thanksgiving Day, last?

I mean, will the spirit of Thanksgiving, and being especially grateful, will it last?

Through the weekend?

Until the end of this month?

Will it last until Christmas?

Or has it come and gone?
