I am finding these comments from last year fascinating and very helpful, so thank you. I could identify with many of them but I think I have gradually come to realise over the years ( since I started meditating) that removing the ‘me’ from the giving changes everything – sometimes I wonder if it makes me a bit hard but it does seem to make generosity somehow easier and coming from a better place because it doesn’t matter. Regarding last weeks discourse about the wealthy man who bought the land for the Buddha so that he could come back again in another life and be equally affluent – I know I am simplifying the story here- is that not giving with expectation? I sometimes find myself getting too analytical and wonder if by being on my ‘spiritual journey’ I am trying to somehow improve my lot next time….
