We enjoy ease and the smooth flow of life, welcoming generosity at all levels—material, mental and emotional. A generous act can be transactional or free of the expectation of any return. Even then, there is a subtle transaction—the giver also receives.
All our actions are interactive and the dynamics of energy fields and matter are ceaseless. A generous mind is limited and measured whereas a generous heart can be unconditional and simply flows. The ego self is the obstacle to such generosity and can darken the heart. Modesty reduces egoistic tendency and selfless acts touch hearts and souls. The human journey is from ego to soul.
The ultimate human purpose is to recognize the ego’s limitations and transcend it through generous acts and unconditional love.
