I believe we are being too selfish when we look at the many blessings present in our lives and regard them as being for our own benefit. Our destiny is not written on some hidden scroll waiting for us to spend a life time of effort trying to discover it. Rather, I believe our destiny is the result of choices we make every day. I'm not talking about life and death decisions, either. We choose our own consequences by the actions we choose. Choosing to see our blessings as gifts with which we are able to help others who are less fortunate, frees us from the limitations of scarcity.
Hoarders believe in scarcity. I do not. If I am in the process of helping others why would I believe I should end up with less, and not more? Circumstances favour those who help. We want to reciprocate - it is in our nature. It is a much used example, but the way to more loving relationships is by giving love freely. Don't even consider meeting someone half way. Be the example and go all out. Yes, it may be scary, and not worthwhile every time, but in the end I can promise you that more will come back to you than you would ever have imagined.
