Giving Without Expectation of Recognition or Reward

DSC00223Giving isn’t always about helping someone. It’s about giving what you have to offer the world without expectation of receiving anything in return. It’s about doing what needs to be done, without being asked to do it. You’ll be giving of yourself and giving attention to things and people around you without taking anyway from yourself. Anything less than this is an injustice to the essence of giving and anything more is a potential domination based action.

Give of what you have without expecting to receive anything in return. Do what needs to be done, nothing more, nothing less! Give lovingly and joyously, there’s nothing more to do or can be done. There are many things you receive daily that were giving by others out of the kindness of their hearts. We’re all guilty of not noticing these free gifts that are a blessing in our daily lives. We don’t even know what person to thank in most cases. But they were given because it was what was needed to be done and someone took the responsibility to make it happen.

Put forth an effort to give! This is a reward within itself for you, the universe and those who benefit from your thoughtfulness. Sit for a moment and think of what you know needs to be done and go do it.

Someone will be grateful and it will not deplete you, it’ll display the love, joy, kindness and compassion that lives within you!

  7. Milo…GIVING, GENUINELY WHOLEHEARTEDLY IS ONE OF THE MOST NATURAL AND POWERFUL “ACTS” THAT ANY OF US CAN PARTICIPATE IN. To Xpect anything in return soils the soul…as well as the satisfaction of the act of “GIVING” itself which, like love, must be given “UNCONDITIONALLY!!!” Lots of “SISTAH POWER” Love, Deborah

  8. Good Day Milo: Good topic selection. I would like to share with you how I feel about it. I always give to people whenever I can even when it means giving my last and I have to go without. I am pleased to do it when I feel the person is worthy of the sacrifice. But when the person does not appreciate, say thank you or give the credit to appropriate person and someone else gets it instead of me that is when I begin to feel funny – I try to feel hurt then I tell myself well, I can’t be hurt cause I really did it to help and I was not looking for anything in return so I should just let it go and I do. It has not always been easy, so I guess I am growing in that area of my life. I decided I would do what I can and let God be the one that pays me. Thank you Jesus!!!

  9. Thanks for the conformation! I love giving and desire to live a life of giving.
