Never come to a house empty-handed
NEVER COME IN ANYWHERE WITH AN EMPTY HANDS!
An excerpt about the power of gifts from Deepak Chopra's book - The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success.
Having met someone, you can silently send him a blessing, wish him happiness, joy and more laughter. This kind of silent donation is very powerful.
One of the useful things that I was taught in my childhood and to which I taught my children is never to come to anyone's house empty-handed, never to come to anyone without a gift.
You can say: "How can I give to others, if at the moment I myself lack?".
You can bring a flower. One flower.
You can bring a note or a card that will say something about your feelings towards the person you came to.
You can bring a compliment.
You can bring a prayer ...
Make a decision to give, wherever you go, whoever you see. The more you give, the more confidence, thanks to the wonderful effect of this law, you gain. And when you get more, your ability to give more also increases.
Our true nature is wealth and abundance, we are rich by nature, because nature supports all our need and desire. We do not lose anything, because our essence is pure potentiality and endless possibilities.
