One can think of life as being a call and response. You try something, then wait to see if it works. Depending on the success or not, you might refine your approach, or try something altogether different.
But the effort is paramount. You don’t get nothin’ sitting there on that bean bag! Try, and try again is not a bad motto.
Giving is something even greater. It’s when you put something into the universe and see if it works. You don’t do it for youself, it’s done for others and the greater whole. Everytime I’ve made the effort to reach out, I’ve been delighted at the results.
Giving without thought of return is something glorious.
