And the more we have, the more we feel we lack.
But there is a powerful emotion you have access to when you give to others. That emotion makes us feel whole. Giving back the world doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your time, your money, or your needs.
Instead, the power of giving can uplift you.
Your Life Is Not About You
How can we create lasting happiness? And what is life really about?
In the video, Neale Donald Walsch, author of Mindvalley’s The Path Towards Self-Awakening Masterclass, shares how to break free from this perpetual cycle.
Neale Donald Walsch explains how focusing in on his own career, goals, and desires for the first 50 years of his life led to a life that simply didn’t work. Any small successes and gains seemed so ephemeral.
“When is the struggle over?” he asked.
And God answered.
In the video above, Neale shares a simple formula that can change the way you experience life forever.
In the video, you’ll learn:
- How to take your individuality and unite with the world.
- How to touch people’s lives through kindness.
- A compassionate way to help someone out of depression.
- Why helping others is the best way to feel happy.
Your life is about big you. Universal you.
– Neale Donald Walsch
3 Unique Ways To Give And Make The World A Better Place
The power of giving is rewarding to yourself, to others around you, and to your community. The majority of people think that in order to make the world a better place you need to donate monetary funds.
When you give back to your community, it produces a snow ball effect and, in turn, it makes the world a better place.
If you’d like to give back to your local community, here are three unique ways you can make a difference in the world that won’t burn a hole in your pocket.
1. Donate your unused clothes and shoes to charity
Do an inventory of the shoes and clothes you don’t wear. The rule is if you haven’t worn it once in the past year, then you should donate it.
Donating used clothes and shoes to a local charity is always a good deed and, bonus, you also get spring cleaning out the way.
2. Prepare a brown bag lunch for the homeless
One of my friend’s nieces had a great idea for feeding the homeless. She packed homemade sandwiches, bottles of water, fruits, and granola bars into brown paper bags and hand-delivered them to every homeless person she saw living on the street.
You should’ve seen the reaction on their faces when she gave them a brown bag filled with food. It was priceless.
This simple act can really mean a lot to people who are down on their luck.
3. Help less fortunate kids with a Gift
Toys are expensive these days and so are books. Think of single-mother families or low-income families who live on a fixed income. When Christmas time comes around, they might not have enough money to buy the gifts their kids want.
You can help these families out by donating an unused toy and children’s books to your local kid’s charity. Or you can bring some books to a children’s ward at your local hospital.
Either way, you’re doing a good deed that will bring some joy into a kid’s life — and every kid deserves joy.
