June 15th

Generosity brings happiness at every stage of its expression. We experience joy in forming the intention to be generous. We experience joy in the actual act of giving something. And we experience joy in remembering the fact that we have given.

    Latin generositas, from generosus ‘magnanimous’ magnanimus (from magnus ‘great’ + animus ‘soul”
    My sister and I had a big discussion about generosity.
    Like my sister, many people believe that by being generous to others, one is actually looking for sympathy, and there for whatever is the feeling one might take from being a giver, the act itself, is nothing but egoistic.
    I actually prefer the “poor” dictionary description above.
    The naive and gorgeous kid in your picture, certainly acts with his heart. So, your quote is perfectly adequate, don’t you think?

    When I give to people I do it for different reasons sometimes because the person needs it or I am close to them them….. it makes me feel happy ..I’d rather give than receive but in the back of my mind there is the niggling thought maybe I do it for egiostical reasons to get a feel good feeling for myself..
