You have something to offer to the world. A generosity of spirit allows you to offer something freely, without fear of loss or lack. When your inner gates are open for you to receive, circulation takes place, allowing for freedom of expression that extends from the inside of you to the outer world, and then returning, refilling you. Consider the circulation of the breath, whose chemical interactions in the blood nourish you, and then create another chemical action that feeds the natural world.
The willingness to offer something true is a gift. Do you notice opportunities in daily life to offer something from yourself? Do you hold yourself back or fear not being enough? Or not having enough? Perhaps of not being received?
These thoughts all arise from a feeling or belief that you have limited resources.
Instead, imagine yourself as being filled from within by a constantly replenishing source. Find your means to connect with this, for it is here that your resources are unlimited. When you are feeling full, do not think to hold tightly to it, for fear of giving it all away and having nothing. Give it away, all of it. Make room for life to fill you again and again and again. Have a generous heart that looks outside of you, sees what is needed and offers it freely, without a focus on a return on investment.
Let yourself feel full within yourself. How could you experience generosity of spirit? What do you offer?
Take a breath. Release it. Take another. Devote some dedicated time of concentration/meditation. It doesn’t need to be hours of quiet, perhaps only 15 minutes. Then allow the question to simmer within you through the weekend. Let responses bubble up into your awareness. Notice new ways of thinking, of images or ideas that arise spontaneously. Pay attention to your dreams. Let it happen. Be aware. See where it leads you next. Let yourself savor this process of receiving from yourself. Don’t judge whatever comes up, just receive it. Make notes.
You may want to share something from this process. Sharing is an important way to anchor an insight in your body. It leads you to deeper insight. It stimulates action. Feel free to use this arena to share whatever moves you.
