Never come to anyone's house empty-handed
NEVER COME IN ANY HOUSE WITH EMPTY HANDS!
Excerpt from 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 gift is very powerful.
One of the useful things that I was taught in childhood and which I taught my children is to never 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 am lacking?”.
You can bring a flower. One flower.
You can bring a note or postcard that will say something about your feelings for the person you came to.
You can bring a compliment.
You can bring a prayer ...
Make the 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 in nature, because nature supports all our needs and desires. We lose nothing, because our essence is pure potentiality and infinite possibilities.
