Getting and Giving
It is important to remember that we all have everything we need now, and that the essence of our being is love. If we think we need to get something from another, we will love that people when we get something from another, we will love that person when we do not.
We frequently have love/hate relationships in which we find ourselves trading conditional love.
The getting motivation and distress and is associated only with linear time. Giving means extending one’s with no conditions, no expectations and no boundaries. Peace of mind occurs, therefore, when we put all our attention into giving and have no desire to get anything from, or to change, another person.
The giving motivations leads to a sense of inner peace and joy that is unrelated to time.
