Painless Giving

by Shervin on October 8, 2018

Do you like to give without future pain and disappointments?

If yes, then you need to drop expectation of getting something in return for your giving.

You may say that you always give without expectation. Is it true?

The true test is when you feel angry when somebody that you did a lot for, did not do similar thing in return.  You may feel furious and upset at your generosity and the other person.

To give requires honesty with ourselves and open communication with others.

If you do not want to give for sake of giving, then choose not to give.

If you want to give and want something in return, say it so upfront or make a contract. This at the beginning may take courage on your part.

Giving without expectation is a great spiritual practice. Clarify your intentions before any act of giving anything small or large. It will lift up your spirit and frees you from bondage of expectations and future pains.
