"To love is to release God's unlimited storehouse of golden treasure. If we love, we cannot help giving, and to give is to gain, and the law of love is fulfilled. Then, by giving, we set in operation the unfailing law of measure for measure. With no thought of receiving, it is impossible to avoid receiving, for the abundance you have given is returned to you in fulfilment of the law, 'Give and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over, shall men give unto your bosom. For with the same measure that you mete, withal, it shall be measured to you again." Teachings of the Masters of the Far East - Baird Spaulding - Vol. 1

"'Freely you have received; freely give,' (Matt. 10:8) It is not our place to judge others, to evaluate them as worthy or unworthy of our assistance. God is the judge, not us. What they do with our aid is between them and God. We are to love and give unconditionally." Generosity Monk- paraphrased

"There is a living to give instead of to get. As you concentrate on the giving, you discover that just as you cannot receive without giving, so neither can you give without receiving--even the most wonderful things like health and happiness and inner peace.  there is a feeling of endless energy, it just never runs out, it seems to be as endless as air. You seem to be plugged in to the source of universal energy." Peace Pilgrim 

"Argue for your limitations, and sure enough, they're yours." Richard Bach

"The next message you need is always right where you are." Ram Dass

"Giving does not impoverish,
  nor does withholding enrich." 
Church of the Golden Rule

                                         Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

"Your body is all in your mind." Chris Burns

Be like the bird,
Pausing in his flight
On a limb too slight,
Feels it give way,
Yet sings,
Knowing he has wings.
           Victor Hugo

"Into the hand that gives, it is given." A Course in Miracles 

"If you found yourself in paradise, it wouldn't be long before your mind would say "yes, but...." Ultimately, this is not about solving your problems. It's about realizing there are no problems. Only situations -- to be dealt with now, or to be left alone and accepted as part of the "isness" of the present moment until they change or can be dealt with. Problems are mind-made and need 'time' to survive. They cannot survive in the actuality of Now."  Eckhart Tolle

"Christianity, seen from a Hindu perspective, becomes in some ways an even more admirable religion. No other religion presses the claim that God is love so vigorously.
