This topic is one of the toughest for people to work through. There are reasons for so many people being poor and it is not what you think or have been taught to believe.
The trouble with having just enough or for many never enough is you never get to make a difference with anyone but yourself. Once you have enough and you have the ability to generate even more it is your duty to do so. Those who have much ability have much to give. Many people who with your help will do the same or even more.
The most difficult part in this process is being a good receiver. There is a lot written about giving and very little that empowers receiving. If you become an excellent receiver, and the poor are not, you have more to give. Worthiness is the issue.
Our stresses, anxieties, pains, and problems arise because we do not see the world, others, or even ourselves as worthy of love. – Prem Prakash
Self-worth comes from one thing — thinking that you are worthy. – Wayne Dyer
Your problem is you are too busy holding on to your unworthiness. – Ram Dass
Worthiness, in very simple terms, means I have found a way to let the Energy reach me, the Energy that is natural, reach me. Worthiness, or unworthiness, is something that is pronounced upon you by you. You are the only one that can deem yourself worthy or unworthy. You are the only one who can love yourself into a state of allowing, or hate yourself in a state of disallowing. There is not something wrong with you, nor is there something wrong with one who is not loving you. You are all just, in the moment, practicing the art of not allowing, or the art of resisting. – Abraham Hicks
Asking is the beginning of receiving. Make sure you don’t go to the ocean with a teaspoon. At least take a bucket so the kids won’t laugh at you. – Jim Rohn
Giving is better than receiving because giving starts the receiving process. – Jim Rohn
Gracious acceptance is an art – an art which most never bother to cultivate. We think that we have to learn how to give, but we forget about accepting things, which can be much harder than giving… Accepting another person’s gift is allowing to express his feelings for you. – Alexander McCall Smith
It takes great generosity to accept generosity. – Merle Shain
If my hands are fully occupied in holding on to something, I can neither give nor receive. – Dorothee Solle
Everything in life is most fundamentally a gift. And you receive it best and you live it best by holding it with very open hands. – Leo O’Donovan
“It’s better to give than to receive.” Let me put this as elegantly as possible: “What a crock!” That statement is total hogwash, and in case you haven’t noticed, it’s usually propagated by people and groups who want you to give and them to receive. The whole idea is ludicrous. What’s better, hot or cold, big or small, left or right, in or out? Giving and receiving are two sides of the same coin. Whoever decided that it is better to give than to receive was simply bad at math. For every giver there must be a receiver, and for every receiver there must be a giver. – T Harv Eker
The ability to give is much better than the need to receive.
