It is the giving time of year. Each year I have become progressively more and more disillusioned with our society and the idea of giving in my observation is not of true giving. We give out of obligation, or cultural pressure. That is the reason that this season that should be filled with love and kindness, seems to be filled with greed and entitlement.
Give from your heart, which means that you are giving exactly what you feel moved to give, not what someone else seems to demand, or you feel that you must. You will know if it is true giving if it brings a joy to your life, you are a willing receiver of gifts from others, and there is a connection made between yourself and the entity or person given to. These are things that you feel, they are undeniable and true in your heart.
