Those who have attended our events at Cala Enterprises know that I am a faithful believer in the law of attraction. I also believe that our energies play a crucial role in our lives. However, paradoxically, I question the popular belief that we always receive everything we give, at least not from whom or how we would expect it.
When it comes to giving and receiving, there is a popular belief that we always get back what we give. It’s very easy to think that when we are going through a significant personal challenge when we feel like the world is crashing down on us, it’s because we are somehow being punished for something we’ve done wrong.
We believe that we are misunderstood by those around us. The reality is much more complex than that. We think we don’t deserve what is happening to us. More than once, deep down, our ego plays a trick on us, knowing that someone to whom we regularly extend a helping hand has not done the same for us.
Thinking in this way is traumatic and painful. The truth is, when we talk about giving and receiving, it’s not about what we do for others, but often, in our effort, we follow the dreams of others and forget our own.
Life always has unique ways of getting our attention, sometimes harsher than others, but it’s wrong to pretend that others would do for us what we have done for them at some point.
Whoever gives, does so without seeing how much and to whom they give. Giving is one of the greatest acts of benevolence and selflessness that we can practice in our lives, and besides bringing benefits to our brain, it gives us a sense of purpose in life. It makes us feel useful.
Our problem is that many times, faced with the prospects of changes we dare not execute, it’s much easier for us to blame others for the things we should have done for ourselves.
In the face of individually generated transformation processes, it’s best to do things gradually and calmly. Don’t wait for anyone to do anything for you, but let all sincere help and love from others be well received.
