Sharing Freely

Generosity is the opposite of taking (asteya), whereby we share freely with a focused, quality effort… Philosopher Maimonides [described] giving on eight spiritual levels. The first two get to the heart of yoga:

  • “The motivation for real giving finds its source in the internal self, not in the expectations of others.”
  • “Happy people don’t expect a return. They give because it comes from the heart and they believe that joy and happiness are abundant. They aren’t going to run out.”

– Sylvia Mordini, MindBodyGreen, 3 Tips for Practicing the Art of Generosity (See article for teachings on the gift of time, the quality of your generosity and being generous with ideas)
