When you give to others, do you do it because you think this meets the expectations of your family or maybe society? Do you think this is what God wants from you? Do you do it because this makes you feel better about yourself, maybe that you are needed. Is there any motive? If there is any motive, then giving "takes away" from you.
You know this state when you don't take care of yourself. You give but there is nothing to replenish. When you give from this place, resentment can build in you. When you give simply because you want to, you have an endless supply in which to give.
This type of giving is spontaneous and filled with joy. It springs up in you, directly supplied by God, as you are the clear vessel through which He spreads Love. This type of giving is what you like to do, because this is what you were created to do. we create through the giving of what we are --- Love. As you give from a joy filled center, you are like a fountain with an endless supply of water. The more you give, the more you have to give.
The act of giving is what creates more to give. This is G.I.A. --- God In Action. You are Self less, not self full.
