“To move from a place of scarcity to one of abundance, paradoxically, you let go. You participate in the very practice of letting go: generosity. Generosity, the practice of giving without needing to get anything in return, is considered the most basic way to find freedom from suffering.” (Marotta 2013, 165).
Ask yourself: “Do I feel deprived in some way, holding tightly to what I have, because it doesn’t feel as if there’s enough to go around or do I act from a place of abundance and give without needing anything in return?”
Cultivate Generosity. Make an intention to practice generosity such as giving others food, money, or shelter, or in intangible ways, such as giving someone your full attention, love, acceptance, or a smile.
