It has been a day of unexpected generosity - intellectual gifts, superb dinner and conversation, an unexpected turn of events resulting in new and amazing possibilities. When we give to others, we overflow with abundance.
But first, we must learn to be generous to ourselves~
Jon Kabat-Zinn says:
"Generosity is another quality which, like patience, letting go, non-judging, and trust, provides a solid foundation for mindfulness practice. You might experiment with using the cultivation of generosity as a vehicle for deep self-observation and inquiry as well as an exercise in giving. A good place to start is with yourself. See if you can give yourself gifts that may be true blessings, such as self-acceptance, or some time each day with no purpose. Practice feeling deserving enough to accept these gifts without obligation - to simply receive from yourself, and from the universe."
