For your consideration…….

It’s a system. Give and take is a system. That is our message.

Somehow we have made “taking” a bad word. So often we substitute “taking” for “receiving”. We like to say, “It is better to give than to receive.” But there is nothing wrong with taking what is freely offered or given.

In fact, for giving to be optimum we must be able to take and receive. For taking and receiving to be optimum we must be able to give. And the key to it all is it must be done freely. It takes both to keep the system moving.

It sounds easy enough but most of us struggle with this. We tend to be more givers or more takers. We are given this message today because balance is important. We need to both give and take freely. The move we give the more we need to receive/take.

Freely give and take joy. Freely give and take love. Freely give and take help. Freely give and take ideas. Freely give and take respect. Freely give and take responsibility. Freely give and take HOPE. Freely give and take gifts. Freely give and take faith etc.

We can expand the success of humanity by freely expanding our giving and taking. The world needs for us to do this.

That is the HOPE. And so it is.

Bit by bit, piece by piece, HOPE by HOPE action steps anyone can take……

-Meditate/pray… ready to give and take.

-Drink lots of water.

-Get outdoors and take in at least 10 deep breaths.

-Freely give and take.
