We live in a world here in the west that encourages us to be selfish, ambitious and insular, remember the famous phrase ‘greed is good‘? All too often we get wound up in our own world and stop thinking about others – i.e. we are selfish.
Yet out there is a world that is suffering and we can give so much, whether its money, unwanted items or most importantly time to those who need it. It will feel odd to start with and maybe a sacrifice but you will know when the change comes as you will feel the joy and love of giving. Remember that the energy and joy you get form being selfless will attract the same back for you from the universe.
