There are so many ways to be generous. It’s one of those qualities that makes life more fun and fulfilling.

In this week’s blog there are seven ways to strengthen your generosity muscle. The world needs strong people who know how to be of service.

I Am Generous

Generosity and service have identical roles with a shared purpose. Being generous means giving from the heart, and being of service is about taking inspired action. One role compliments the other to keep generosity flowing.

A generous heart, kind speech, and a life of service and compassion are the things that renew humanity.”  ~ Buddha

ACTION STEPS

Being generous makes the world a better place. Acts of service go a long way towards uplifting humanity. When you care more about what you can give than what you can get, you embody generosity. 

Be generous with your body by giving it attention. Check in with your body throughout the day to find out what it needs to feel good. Your body is in service to your physical journey every moment of your life, and with good care it will serve you well.

You condition your mind to let go through acts of generosity. As you give from the heart your mind relaxes. You can start with small things like a smile, a compliment, or a gift and work up to compassionate acts of service.

Generosity strengthens a loving heart. It has the power to increase your electromagnetic field that radiates energy out into the world. In relationships a generous heart wants to make their partner’s life easier by reducing their stress and increasing their joy. 

Having a generous spirit is the foundation of a happy human experience. It means that you are willing to share your gifts with others without expectations. Generosity has the magical quality of creating a spiritual bond between the giver and receiver. 

Get in the habit of sharing your food with others. Preparing a healthy meal is one generous act of service that provides sustenance for everyone at the table. It’s a way of bringing people together to appreciate Mother Nature’s bountiful gifts. 

Go through your closets and remove everything you no longer wear. Donate that clothing to those who could use it and notice how good it feels to recycle. This kind of generosity builds integrity.
