"I want you to understand, you have come with nothing. So you cannot give. There is nothing to give. Everything, we have picked up from here. We take a lot and we give little, that’s the only way we can live. It doesn’t matter how much you give, what you have taken is bigger than what you have given, always. That’s the only way life can be. So don’t make too much out of giving. It’s just a trick.
If you do not know any other mode of opening yourself up to creation, giving is a simpler possibility. Just make every act, every breath into a process of giving. See how you can contribute to everything around you, no matter what you are doing. Because that’s the only way life functions. Life – the process of life is a giving. It’s a transaction – in every giving, there is a taking. It is just that you ignore the taking, that’s all. You are taking more than you are giving, but in your mind you just ignore the taking, you just keep giving. You will see, in 24 hours time you will be so rich. The experience of life, the beauty of life will set a glow on your face just like that. Simply because that’s how you are." – Sadhguru
