“In giving to others, I give to myself.
In the spiritual universe, we only keep what we give away.
Many thoughts that masquerade as self-interest are actually thoughts of self-sabotage.
When I think about myself at the expense of others, I am subconsciously seeking to deny myself.
Surrendering to the ways of God is not an act of self-sacrifice, but rather the opposite. For in withholding from God, withholding my love, I am sacrificing a life of spiritual abundance and emotional freedom.
Today I give my love to others, that I might feel more loved myself.
May I not be tempted
To withhold my love.
In surrendering to love,
I surrender to the force
That wishes for me my greatest good.
The ego speaks, but the ego lies.
May love drown out its voice today.
Excerpt From: Williamson, Marianne. “A Year of Miracles.”
ANITA JOYCE SKOCZ is a storyteller who resides in Central Florida. She credits her passion to her father, who dazzled her imagination as a child with his gift to weaver a tale. After a diving accident in 1978, Anita left the travel industry to journey the inner roads of her soul. The riches found on those adventures inward come to life in her children’s books.
Anita’s books, “Crystal Star Angel” and “Kite Tale,” were inspired by the loving relationships her father had with his grandsons.
From Where I Sit is a blog where Anita shares her life’s stories, or comments on current events from her soul’s perspective. Her insights can evoke laughter as well as take one on a reflective journey. In any case she hopes you join her each Wednesday for a new adventure.
