Subject: A personal meaning of GIFT

Hi Pauline, You know I really connected with what Raj was saying about "gifting". And I also know I haven't yet seen that truth spill out into every aspect of my life and into a new habit of relating to life, but I am beginning to see differently and that realization is growing.

What I'd like to share is my experience of what this "gifting" is.  When I give to someone, purely out of love, whether that be a kind word, or tolerance, or money, or a material object, or a hug... the act of giving this, without any expectation or need for anything in return, fills me with such joy that I can totally connect with the awareness that giving does not deplete the giver but only multiplies the gift for all.

The form of the gift doesn't matter, because what's being given is not the form.  What's being given is the IDEA that love and abundance is real, and fear and scarcity is not. When this IDEA is given, it is shared, where both the giver and the receiver maintain the gift.

I know this is true because every time I give from the heart, with love and without strings, I am overjoyed and I am equally blessed in the abundance of the gift.
