True Measure and Purpose of Giving

“The true measure of a man is how he treats someone who can do him absolutely no good.” ~Samuel Johnson Some people say there’s no such thing as a selfless act; that any time we do something to help another person, we get something in return, even if it’s just a warm fuzzy feeling. It doesn’t really bother me to know it feels good to help someone else. That, to me, is a completely acceptable type of selfishness. What give me cause for concern are the underlying expectations we often have … [Read more...]

Similarly, we can stage a seduction or mount a courtship, but the … [Read more...]

And when we encounter people who refuse to let us leave empty handed, we don't know what to say. The correct answer is, "Yes, thank you, I would love three pounds of stuffed mushrooms to take home with me." It doesn't matter if you're hungry. Or even if you like mushrooms. You have to allow yourself to be the recipient of their generosity. Just let the wave wash over you. Don't rob … [Read more...]

OMTimes celebrated AUG: To Be an Emissary of Compassion

We live in a dynamic place of complimentary opposites – positive/negative, male/female, light/dark. When we are born into this plane of complimentary opposites, the unconditional becomes conditional. However, somehow we are still able to grasp the concept of being unconditional even as we are being conditional about love. Just as we are able to grasp the concept of being one, while we are being more than one. We don’t see it logically with our mind, but we know it is true at some other level of … [Read more...]
