Becoming Larger

There is a simple turn-around that the mind can recognize, though the heart may resist when pain is great, namely, the asking of another: "How can I help you right now?"

This asking need not take place externally, though it might. It can be an inner asking, a shift from focusing on meeting one's own needs, to meeting the needs of the situation, of the moment, of what God has placed before you.

Often, one feels too small to locate this kind of generosity, and yet feeling 'small' is a belief like any other. One can replace the idea of 'smallness' with the idea of the largeness of one's pure divine inner Being that knows more, loves more, and can respond more. All human beings are created in this way.

Blessed are those who can make this transition in feeling, for generosity does not just gratify others, it opens the heart to the richness of love.

  1. I read this at school while my student worked independently on an assignment. Although nothing was said, just the shift in consciousness brought a small bit of this experience. Thank you.
