Sharing benefits all: the person (or community) who does the sharing, and the person (or community) who receives. Sharing helps to stimulate that sense of community, of belonging, of being included and of being in the right place. When we share, there is no struggle for power, for who is right or wrong. Instead the feeling of togetherness allows for the flow of ideas and gives one a sense of security.
Or at least it should.
One should always share with a giving heart. If resentment is behind the sharing, it can pervade the experience and take away its beauty. If superiority is behind the sharing, pride can take over. If duty is behind the sharing, the giver will not receive all the potential blessings.
Instead share with love.; share with the thought of no return; share as Jesus did when he fed the multitude. Share with a giving and loving heart and the unexpected blessings received will be many.
What are your thoughts on sharing?
