:: On Giving ::

:: On Giving ::

The key point is doing or giving whatever possible without
Expecting anything in return. Materially you may not be able to
Give much; yet it is not what or how much you give but your attitude
Behind the giving which is essential. Give freely whatever you can without
Expecting a reward. You never owned any of it in the first place.
It is impossible to have something completely for yourself.
There simply is no one to do the possessing and nothing to be possessed.
Everything is impermanent - empty and unsubstantial -
And everyone is without self.
