How are you trying to do when you feel Over-Blessed? That’s a question worth examining because even my life not that financially succesful (ya still on my progress about that) I am still feeling blessed as I was born physically healthy and having such a complete family around me. That was already enough to me to feeling as the lucky person. Moreover about having a true friends, my education, my experiences, and all. I feel been allowed to learn, to explore….as much as I can try. What an over-blessed my life.
Maybe there are so many people not lucky as us. And if you said that you’re not that lucky enough.. I will ask you then, ‘So when you will be satisfied about your life?’ We would never. We would never satisfied with anything. Its a human being, our ego isn’t satisfied with anything, the kindness people gave, the easier way to catch an education or job, the loves from others, anything. What I want is, lets us enjoy every little pleasure in life. Be the thankful one…. and what is the possible ending or such a ‘give back’ that we should do?
“When we give freely, we feel full and complete; when we withhold, we feel small, petty, impotent, and lacking. We are meant to learn this great truth, that giving fulfills us, while withholding and trying to get causes us to feel empty and even more needy. This truth runs counter to our programming, which drives us to try to get something from others to fulfill our neediness, only to end up even more needy, grasping, lacking, and unfulfilled.”
― Gina Lake, What about Now?: Reminders for Being in the Moment
Agree with that quote, that what keep us enjoying our life is by giving. Its kind of how you celebrate your own over-blessed life. It is not about how much money that you have but about what you can do to others. What do you want to do to lifting others up. How you want to be remembered that you ever exist. This … led you to do something.
There are so many ways to ‘give-back’.
You may experience your true self through giving. Land your truly moment with others, feel the satisfaction being your own role, feel the acceptance and the contentment comes to you. Well if you feel the opposite, you didnt find a happiness through it then mind your self that you didnt giving yet.
I always on my believe about ’do not let the world make you hard’. Actually we all are know, what kind of world we were belong in. Ya, when we’re realize about that, we might try to never expecting the world…
And i will remind you that the very opposite about expecting is only giving, right? Accept that, this is the self reflective that you sometimes miss out on the experience of living.
It is your very best time to feel your spiritual growth, to do giving!
But please to always remember that giving has nothing to do with money, it has nothing to do with your budgets or paying bills. Its more than that, its EVERYTHING to do with personal disipline. Its kind of personal effort to grow our faith because we rise by lifting others.
And I mean it as the purpose of life.. Its the main way to find balance in life. You need to feel calm and grounded. It is such a best way to keeping our mind, heart, and health to always pure/soft. Because giving would always liberates our soul, it is one of the basic happiness ingredients, or even that far… such a stepping stone closer toward heaven. Because life is not just about getting and having but also giving (:
