Living in the Stream of Yes

Generosity and the Flow of Kindness


Doesn’t it feel good to give generously! We love to cooperate with one another and offer what we can. We feel high behaving like that and any pay offs come as an extra. This story illustrates some “extras” along the way.

Lucy loves the jewelry that her friend Maureen creates. L had been very happy with the many necklaces she’d bought. Then one day perusing the inventory,  our star spotted a green stone bracelet and picked that up for her collection.

Soon afterwards, Lucy noticed that dear bracelet had fallen off her wrist during yoga. There it was on the rug. No problem, she put it back on. Then after another couple of days L looked at her wrist and realized the bracelet had come off… somewhere. Not good.

As this heroine felt disappointed at the loss, she also wished that Maureen would make her another one. It was the style of clasp that just did not work well for wrists.

Soon Lucy told Moe what had happened. M immediately agreed to make her another one—even without L asking. What a generous woman was this jeweler!

Also going on in this period, L was clearing her closets. As she went through her tops, Lucy found a black one that was a famous designer name but was too big for her. Thinking of her friend Moe our star put that aside to deliver to M when she could.

Within a couple of weeks, Lucy and Maureen met at an event that they both enjoy.

M delivered the remade bracelet and that day, L brought the top for that skilled craftswoman.

To L’s delight, this generous friend had wanted to find a black top and this one was great for her!

What a lovely confluence! Both parties glad to give freely and both unexpectedly got treats!

Isn’t it fun when we attract that! Let’s keep our eyes on the good in life!
