Now this is a concept I can embrace without reservation! I came into this life with nothing and so far I have most of that left so why not give it all away? However, I suspect Lao Tzu was not referring to material treasures here.
Wisdom withholds no thing that would benefit the receiver. Out of the riches of our hearts we can choose to pour out the benefit of our knowledge and experience onto others or we can withdraw and leave the words unsaid.
Say what needs to be said; give and give and give some more. Words have power to build or destroy. The former is most often accomplished by going out of our way to praise, admire, acclaim, encourage, or even admonish. The latter is most often brought about by what is left unsaid–often with tragic consequences.
Speak love, light, laughter, and life into existence today. “Who, me?” Yes. You. No time like the present.
“My bounty is as boundless as the sea, my love as deep. The more I give thee, the more I have, for both are infinite.” ~ Romeo and Juliet
“Give and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” ~ Luke 6:38
