Be a gift to everyone who enters your life and to everyone whose life you enter. Be careful not to enter another’s life if you cannot be a gift. – Neale Donald Walsch.
This sounds strong, isn’t it? Almost a warning! But, this is a very important message. It indicates the purpose of life. It speaks about the purpose of all relationships. All of us are co-creating our life experiences. If we cannot contribute in a constructive way, we should step out of that relationship.
The only situation when we cannot contribute in a constructive way is one where we presume that what we give should be reciprocated. Had there been no such expectations, we would have enjoyed giving our best. And we do enjoy this. Think about the relationships which you found very fulfilling. And then try to remember from where that fulfilment came? Was that because of something the other did for you, or was that a sheer joy of giving? It is always more satisfying when we share our blessings to make another’s life beautiful.
Let us spend this weekend in truly acknowledging this power. God has created us in the image and likeness of God!
Love, Joy, Peace
