Generosity

The first response that popped up when seeing this quote is the act of generosity.  Become an outpouring in gift giving.  Rather from taking in to oneself, give to all.  Many times with all the nuances of life, we absorb like a sponge life pouring into us.  A sponge has just so much capacity until it leaks the excess liquids.  We need to empty the contents of the sponge to be light and airy as a sponge should be.  Wouldn’t it be better to squeeze the sponge over somewhere that is needed, thus giving toward the well-being around us.

Let there be work, bread, water and salt for all. – Nelson Mandela

One thought on “Generosity

  1. There is another point Nelson Mandela was trying to make with work, bread, water, and salt as a kind of necessity of life. Work connects us to life, as we do for our body, mind, and spirit. Bread and water is needed to nourish life.
    Salt provides the level of taste. Balanced in all these, life cultivates in peace together.
