As most of you must be already knowing that I am highly motivated by the positive thoughts shared in ‘The Secret’ (book and movie). In the earlier post from ‘motivational quotes’ section on this blog, I had discussed about the magical power of ‘giving’. Many of us want to give, but wait for our situation to get better or earn more money before starting to give. It is very common to hear people say “once I become rich and settled, I shall donate part of my wealth and time towards social service, charity and poor people”. However, no one is sure about their definition for ‘being rich’. It is observed that human beings will hardly ever be satisfied with the money that they earn or the time that they have on hand for various activities. In other words, you will never have enough money or time on hand for your contentment. So, it is extremely important to start with whatever little we have. If you look around, there would be plenty of people who are less fortunate than you are. So, be thankful for all that you have and start giving. Its like if you give more, it will eventually open up the door to receive more in future. So, fast-track your route to immense prosperity by continuously giving part of your wealth and time for the welfare of the poor.
If you check the track record of some of the most successful and wealthiest people of the world, you will observe that they started giving even when they weren’t as wealthy as they are now. In fact, since they started giving back to the society, they enjoyed the things that they got in return. As stated earlier, it is a two-way channel: you need to start giving now, to be able to get in abundance in future. Again, you need to ‘give’ with a clear heart without expecting anything in return. Once your intentions are clear, you will experience the magical power of giving and enjoy the fruits over a long term. This is apart from the immense internal satisfaction that you get by giving and helping others in need. A satisfied soul and mind opens up better avenues to receive good things in future.
If you really want to start giving, you can perhaps start by giving 1/10th of your wealth towards charity and the poor. Also, you can spare some time (may be 5-10% of the time you get every month) to spend with the poor children and educate them or help them learn new things in life. The practice of donating 1/10th of your wealth was also followed by the ancient Babylonians as per ‘The Secret’ book. This practice was known as the ‘tithing law’ as per which you can give away 10% of your wealth and riches that you receive. This practice was an important reason for their prosperity and wealthiness. They enjoyed everything in abundance because they were continuously giving a part of their wealth to the needy. Similarly, if you really want to give, don’t wait as there is no better time to start giving money / time then ‘now’. As they say in Hindi ‘Kal Karein so aaj kar, aaj karein so Ab’, please make your present count and explore the ‘jhingalala’ power of ‘giving’.
Please note that above thoughts have been inspired from the Secret book and the Secret movie. I have been a big fan of the thoughts shared by ‘The Secret’ book as well as movie, hence I try to spread my learnings from them as much as I can.
