giving – one of those many things that I think about, even during meditation. Meditation can be, if you want, a deep deep contemplation, deep exploration of a topic, of a concept, of a problem or issue, that leads to understanding. Sometimes overwhelming understanding. Often a challenging understanding. Experiment with it. Play around with Expectancy, Busy, Scattered, Peace, Marriage, Family. Spend a week or two, or a year or two, meditating on one concept, issue, problem and see how clarity comes.
Giving is only giving when there is no thought of reward. Nice words, easy to say, and easier to write; the hardest to do. Giving really is a detachment from the thought of reward. Not expecting anything, not even a smile. No feedback at all. For captured in the silence of giving is humility. In the silence.
