The gift of receiving

The happy heart gives away the best. To know how to receive is also a most important gift, which cultivates generosity in others and keeps strong the cycle of life.–Dhyani Ywahoo–Voices of Our Ancestors

We have been taught that it is better to give than to receive. It is a line in the popular prayer of St. Francis. Few think of the equal importance of receiving. Without receivers there could be no givers. I think receiving is as much a gift as giving. Sometime I have trouble receiving. It’s really a matter of ego and pride. Think about it. Peace.
