Givers And Takers

"The takers are the people who believe their lives will always be the total of what they can get from the world. They are always thinking to get, get and get. They plan and scheme ways to get what they want in money, in love, in happiness etc.
But whatever may be their spiritual ideals or lack of any, no matter what they take, they can never know peace, security and fulfillment.
The givers, on the other hand, are convinced that life is a giving process. Thus their subtle motivation in all their ways is to give themselves away, in love, in service, and in all the many helpful ways they can invest themselves. They are always secure, for they intuitively know that their good flows from within."

"If nature has made you a giver, your hands are born open, and so is your heart. And though there may be times when your hands are empty, your heart is always full, and you can give things out of that."
(- Frances Hodgson Burnett -)

  1. In the end it doesn't matter what we get from this world rather what we have given to the world. God has given us brain and hands to serve others. If we do a good deed with our right hand then our left hand should not know. Meaning we should continue to tread the right path without expecting anything in return. God will bless you.

  4. The primary motive of our life is only giving. What we get in life is simply what we had given earlier. So we need to be careful while giving, else we will have to pay back in the same coin.
    Treat people in such a way, as you would like yourself to be treated by others.
    Thanks for sharing a wonderful post once again.

  7. I also think that takers don't 'take' a look at themselves -they seem too busy blaming others for their problems. Givers look at themselves and the needs of others.
