The Law of Receiving

No matter what we want of life we have to give up something in order to get it.” ~ Raymond Holliwell

This week, we are looking at Dr. Raymond Holliwell’s Working With The Law: 11 Truth Principles for Successful Living.

He who seeks the Father, with “getting” as his objective, does not seek Him in trueness of spirit….

“In a state of limited understanding, we reason what we must get before we can give, and then we turn and walk in the same mental rut as before by reasoning that we must give before we can get: but in our lack of understanding, we continue to leave the “getting” idea foremost in out thought and we shut out the spirit of giving.”

This law is about reciprocity – it is in giving that we receive. It is time we stop focusing on being go-getters and become “go-givers”. I loved the movie, Pay It Forward. It spoke to unconditional giving and no ego or judgment; almost a utopian existence.

Can you give without expecting anything in return?
