The Sun Never Says

Taken from "The Gift" Poems By Hafiz
The gift I received from this was a reminder to be generous. How, you wonder? It's not about money (though charitable contributions to organizations that you love are wonderful).
It is (for me) about being open-minded rather than, as I like to say, "judgey-wudgey." It is (for me) about offering my support in whichever way will serve rather than playing tit-for-tat. It is (for me) about remembering that, not everything is about me, and I need not take things so personally; I can allow the situation or comments to be for the other. And, it is (for me) about unconditional love; which has absolutely no bounds. In this place of being generous in this way, healing happens here...from within me, to without.
What is it for you?
