One of the definitions of the word affluent is “to be in the flow” and I absolutely love that. I’m interested in being in the flow of giving and receiving. I’m interested in being in the flow of the all good.
There is a common belief in the human experience that it is “better to give than to receive.” We believe it, but is it true? I don’t think so. Maybe it’s become our belief to help us remember not to be selfish. I used to believe this and it led me to be an over-giver. I was giving to get and I was constantly keeping score. Everything I gave and received had a string attached and I didn’t feel affluent. I rarely felt like I was in the flow.
As I took my spiritual studies deep into my heart I realized that I felt so much freer if I lived life in the flow of giving and receiving. I decided that everything I received came from the Oneness of all life and everything I gave or shared I was giving to the Oneness of all life.
That’s when I began to stop worrying about money and I began to feel divinely supported. Things really began to feel affluent for me. I’m so grateful I was willing to learn to be a good receiver. In order to do that I had to be willing to know that it’s just as good to receive as it is to give.
When I receive I am GIVING people an opportunity to share and that is being a good neighbor. When I was a scorekeeper I was a poor receiver because I thought everything had a string attached. I’m so glad I could change my mind and give up the scorekeeping! Yahoo!
I AM in the flow of the all good. I AM a good receiver.
