POSTCARD#315: Chiang Mai:ย  Click on โ€˜generosityโ€™, then click on synonyms for that word, and you get loving-kindness, compassion, empathy, well-being, freedom. You find gratitude, grace, honor, motivation, encouragement.

Generosity is everything. Its nature is to share, recycle, circulate; it can only be given, never taken. With generosity we can accept, we can share, we can forgive. Generosity leads to wisdom โ€“ the truth is without bias. There is an understanding of things as they really are.

There is โ€˜generosity of spiritโ€™, a quality we all possess. Generosity, as a mental, emotional letting go, means releasing the tenacity of holding on to things. All that heavy stuff we burden ourselves with is removed in one single act of generosity.

Whatโ€™s wrong with being generous, cultivating an inward disposition to give? A glad willingness to share what we have with others โ€“ why not? We have more than enough. Give it awayโ€ฆ
