Have you ever noticed how the earth spontaneously offers of itself? Water flows, breezes blow, plants grow.
Some people are similar. Watch them, for they usually are the ones with great prosperity. Just what is it about generosity that tends to open the floodgate of abundance?
It is a topic worth studying this year. Watch for the people who seem most times to have a smile on their lips. What is it they are doing in their consistent activities? What generates that glow?
If you are to succeed in your goals this year, it will be important that you study those you feel are successful. We’re not talking the unhappy ones who may have ascended some metallic career ladder, but who are miserable and yell not just with their voices but with their habits, bodies, approaches.
No, find the people who are at peace. What makes them tick? Watch them. What you learn may astonish you as they move throughout humanity, blessing the lives of others. Generosity very nearly always is at the heart of their efforts.
So as you analyze your goals for this year (you HAVE written them down, right?), be thinking about the parameter of generosity. Why is it so often the key to a happy life? And once you’ve discovered your answer, make sure to right it down…for your posterity’s sake.
For that is what a generous person would do, right? :0)
Along the lines of our last blog post (singing and swinging into your perfectly fitting “slippers”), remember this: Imitation is death.
Why is that? Well, many reasons…some thoughts of which you could share that would be better than the ones we might have. But when you are trying to imitate the life or the talents or the style of another individual, you are starving that which was meant to be born from within you!
Have you heard of the concept of “turgidity”? When a plant’s turgidity is high, it means it has ample fluid hydrating its cells. When the turgidity is low, it simply means the plant is desperately thirsting for water.
Have you been starving your life’s cells pining for the mission, life call, or talents of another? We submit that when you take time to journal each day about your life, about the abundances you choose to notice, and about the good things you do, you will begin to water and feed your own “plant.” Your emotional, social, spiritual, and physical turgidity will increase.
And that, my friend, is a very good place to be. So go get happenin’ with that plant water for your soul!
Yes, I admit it. Life flurries and then I post. Life flurries and then I post. But it’s all good. I’ve been hibernating and working on several very large projects. In essence, I’m going through a complete renovation of my creative processes during all of the upheaval. And soon I’ll be ready to talk about the news of it all!
