The Benefits of Giving  

Giving of yourself to others not only benefits them; it also makes you more open emotionally, more positive and more aligned with the spiritual energies of life.

One of the best methods for encouraging emotional openness is to pay more attention to giving to other people. We all tend to focus a lot on ourselves — our own desires, interests and pursuits. That's natural. If we don't pay enough attention to ourselves, it will be hard to accomplish our important purposes in life. But sometimes we become so self-absorbed that we don't pay enough attention to other people. This tends to close us emotionally.

When you open to other people, you establish a bridge between yourself and that which exists outside your private experience. You invite the experience and the love of other people into your life. This can help you expand and deepen your emotions.

If you work to open to other people, you'll want to balance the attention you give yourself with the attention you give to the people in your life. A good way to monitor yourself each day is to use the image of a balance scale. On one side, imagine all of the attention you've focused on yourself. See it pulling down that side of the scale. If you don't give your attention to anybody else that day, your scale will be way out of balance. By giving to others, you'll bring your scale more into balance.

We all tend to pay more attention to ourselves in a typical day than we do to other people. But this image of the scale will at least help you see when you're totally caught up with yourself and not giving at all to others.

You can also think in terms of energies flowing into you and out of you. Giving your attention to yourself is a taking in of energy. Giving to others is a going out of energy. No matter how wonderful it is to care for yourself, if that's all you do, then you'll only take in energy, and you'll become overstuffed or blocked. Your human energies in your personality can temporarily become unbalanced toward the self, and that can result in selfishness and the creation of a gap between yourself and other people.

When you give to others, you begin the outpouring of your energies — your energies of caring, compassion and loving. Such an outpouring creates experiences that are very important for you. They can broaden and expand your human expression, stimulating deeper love and fulfillment within you. Also, other people benefit a great deal from what you give them. Seeing them benefit from your giving can bring great joy into your life, which will prompt deeper emotional openings within you.

It would be quite unusual, and perhaps even impossible, for you to live every moment of your life perfectly balanced between taking in energies for yourself and pouring out energies to other people. It's simply not in our human nature to be that uniform or that perfect. Human nature is volatile and robust. It's experimental, you might say. So to guide yourself in your balance between taking for yourself and giving to others, you can think in terms of making continual adjustments every day instead of trying to be perfect.

You must decide each day what you will give, to whom, when, where and how. As you make these decisions, it's wise to balance what you desire to give with what others need to receive. So it's always wise to ask people, "What do you need? How can I help?"

Most people need to receive compassion, warmth, encouragement and love from others. In almost every moment of your life, the people around you will deeply need these gifts from you. If you're willing to give them, not only will others benefit, but you'll be opening emotionally through giving.

The gentle emotional openings you make when you try to care more about others, give to them and be kind and generous to them, will soften your own personality. When you soften, you create more thoughts and feelings that are positive, creative and more aligned with the true spiritual energies of life.

By becoming softer through your willingness to try to be kind, sensitive and generous to others, you'll create a strong, positive and beneficial reflective action back into your own personality patterns. This will stimulate those patterns toward growth and fulfillment.

Now, here are two things you can do to use these insights in your life.

First, visualize a balance scale with the attention you've paid to yourself today on one side, and the attention you've given to others on the opposite side, and ask yourself if it is evenly balanced. If not, try giving more freely to others. You'll bring joy into both your life and theirs.

Second, make a point of asking people what they need and how you can help them, for different people have different needs. But almost everyone requires warmth, encouragement and love, and by giving these gifts you'll be opening yourself emotionally and stimulating your own spiritual growth.
