The Wisdom of Opposites

The opposite of being generous is to be greedy, mean, selfish, stingy, and fearful. You cannot be generous and greedy. Eventually one will extinguish the other. You cannot be generous and mean. You cannot be generous and selfish. These opposites are constantly vying for dominance within you, and eventually one will extinguish the other. Which one? Whichever one you nurture and feed.

Now, here is today’s generosity habit.

Remember. Remember people’s names, remember other people’s birthdays and anniversaries, and most of all help those you love to remember their story and your story together. Memories have a powerful positive impact on us emotionally, psychologically, and spiritually. Go through your photos and send one to someone reminding them of a great memory. Ask people to tell you about some of the best moments of their lives. When we forget our story, we go mad. This is true for a person, a couple, a family, a business or organization, and a nation. Help people to remember their stories.
