My Awakening Joy Callenge

I feel joy when I give to others. It makes me feel happy.

How about you?

The Buddha recommended that when you are in the midst of a generous act, say to yourself: “I AM being generous.” Not so much to boost our egos but more for us to get in touch with how it feels inside of us when we give. Jesus said: “Give and it will be given to you; a good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be poured into your lap.” (Luke 6:38).

Giving away something ~ my time, a kind word or an object always, without fail, returns to me so much more joy then what I have ever given away.

Being generous awakens my joy. It feels good.
