I envision giving as a multifaceted activity.
First, understand that your innate universal spirit offers a catalyst for personal change and transformation.

(Note, reciprocity is a cornerstone of this experience; as we help ourselves we serve others.)
Next, helping others starts with providing the necessary tools for transformation.
A divided spirit is porous, unhinged by the vicissitudes of mortality, and lacking the requisite faith to weather life’s inevitable storms.

It is during moments of intense reflection, that we hear the universal voice calling us.
When shrouded in this truth we do not resist because we know, gaining sight beyond sight and wisdom beyond knowledge.
As our awareness blossoms divine truth is revealed; the universal spirit is inside all of us, we are one.
Buttressed by this understanding, we now live with integrity.
The disparate pieces of our soul are fused, we “get it.” The cosmic switch is thrown and we know the one and only reality of spiritual love. You Are What You Love: The Spiritual Power of Habit New Price: $13.05 Old Price: $19.99You Save: $6.94 (as of 08/22/2017 01:51 UTC)
We manifest this truth by thought and deed, and are compelled to spread our fortune. We walk with the spirit.
Once inspired by the cosmic force, we must help others.
This connection is strengthened by those we inspire, who then influence others to recognize their purpose.
Devotion epitomizes this process by creating a solid foundation for individual growth and the reaching of others, who are then encouraged to pass on the “good word,” so to speak.
Ultimately, a union of like-minded believers is created.
