The Act of Giving and Receiving
The Act of Giving
The Act of Receiving
The act of giving creates responses in our bodies. When you think about the feelings that you are experiencing in your body, you realize that you begin to feel good about yourself, happy, connected, generous, loving and a sense of goodness within your body through the act of giving.
The act of receiving can create other experiences such as true appreciation and feelings of warmth toward humanity, itself. When we receive a gift from a place of sincere appreciation, our heart opens. Many times we can actually “feel” the response from a sincere receiver, which touches our “giving heart”, even more. Giving and receiving both can create wonderful feelings of appreciation and care. The feeling of gratitude creates connections with others that opens both hearts.
For some, receiving has been a matter of conditioning. Sometimes receiving creates distrust. We wonder what the giver expects from us. There may be expectations. When we feel we deserve this gift or possibly even better, we are experiencing the gift through the ego, and we begin to think this gift is owed to us. If the gift is given with expectations, then it may still be from the heart, but now attached are emotional strings. No longer are we operating from a place of unconditional love.
It is when the giver and the receiver are mutually served that hearts open. Expectations and feelings of distrust create blocks. Find those situations that “talk to you through your heart”, give freely and observe how giving and receiving are the same emotions when done from a place of respect.
As society becomes more consciously aware of how to interact together for the good of all, gratitude becomes the word of each day. Appreciate the giving and receiving in this world. Sharing is the new culture of social change.
Thanks for reading.
“Gracious acceptance is an art – an art which most never bother to cultivate. We think that we have to learn how to give, but we forget about accepting things, which can be much harder than giving…. Accepting another person’s gift is allowing him to express his feelings for you.”
― Alexander McCall Smith, Love Over Scotland Goodreads.com
