You often say, "I would give, but only to the deserving."
The trees in your orchard say not so, nor the flocks in your pasture.
They give that they may live....
for to withhold is to perish....................
See first that you yourself deserve to be a giver..
and instrument of giving.
For in truth it is life that gives unto life --
while you, who deem yourself a giver, are but a witness.
(Kahlil Gibran)


  1. Nice thought but I feel Gibran's philosophy esp his work 'the prophet' resembles our Holy Gita's teachings in many ways.

    1. Yes, I fully agree with you Ankita. Gita says you are only an observer and not the doer. Thanks. God bless.

  2. It is as well to remember that giving does not apply only to humans, who are perhaps the least deserving of all God's creatures.
    Plants, animals, birds, in other words: God.
    Giving to God is true giving.

  3. Human giving to human is like God giving to God because human is the creation of God. Thanks The Crow. God bless.
