“The one desire which grows more and more is to giveâ€¦ Giving and receiving are at bottom one thing, dependent upon whether one lives open or closed. Living openly one becomes a medium, a transmitter; living thus, as a river, one experiences life to the full, flows along with the current of life, and dies in order to live again as an ocean.”
-Henry Miller (1891-1980
In this season of giving, let’s look at the process, and how much the simple, and natural, act of giving contributes to our spiritual growth. Giving opens us up, it opens our hearts. The more we give, it seems, the more we want to give, because we experience that current in our lives and are energized by it. It just feels good!
