Law of Nature -- More you give, more you receive

Usually people do not want to share things they have. They tend to hold on to the possessions, knowledge and information. Somehow they do not realize that, if in life you are a miser and you cling to things, to money and this and that; the more you are contracted inside and the life force is blocked. You can see a perfect example of this in nature.

There are two seas in Israel/Palestine. One the Sea of Galilee which is filled with fresh and sparkling water. Trees and flowers grow around it. Fish live in it, and its banks are green. Source of this is the River Jordan from the hills around Mount Hermon...

Sea of Galilee

River Jordan flows on south into another sea. Here t here is no life, no song of birds,. The air hangs sinister and heavy above its water, and neither man nor beast nor bird will drink. This sea is the Dead Sea.

Dead Sea

What makes so mighty a difference between these two seas – one so alive, so tremendously alive; and another so dead, so deadly dead? This is the difference: the Sea of Galilee receives but does not keep the waters of River Jordan. For every drop that flows into it, another drop flows out. The more it gives joyfully away, the more it receives in return. This is the sea of life – the Sea of Galilee. The other sea hoards every drop of water reaching it and gives nothing in return. The Sea of Galilee gives and lives. The other sea gives nothing and does not live. It is truly named ”The Dead” – the Dead Sea.

And the same is true about human life. You can become the Sea of Galilee or you can become the Dead Sea. If you become the Sea of Galilee, sooner or later you will attract the supreme consciousness to you. And you will be in a totally different world. You will have the touch of the divine. Or you can become the Dead Sea; then go on receiving and don’t give; then go on hoarding and don’t give. A miser is a dead person; a miser dies everyday. Share, whatsoever you have share, and you will receive more. That is the meaning of friendliness.

The more compassion, love, and friendliness you give the more they will grow. Not that you will become friendly: you will become the friend. Not that you will become friendly: you will become friendship, friendliness. Not that you will love: you will become love, you will be the very quality of love.
