Good Vibrations

When we serve others we receive unfathomable treasure.

Luke 6:38

“Give and gifts will be given to you; a good measure, packed together, shaken down, and overflowing, will be poured into your lap. For the measure with which you measure will in return be measured out to you.”


These words of Jesus sound a lot like Karma or the old adage, “What goes around comes around.”

St. Paul claimed that Jesus had also said, “It is more blessed to give than to receive” (Acts 20:35).

Giving to others from your heart creates ripples of goodness or positive energy that in turn encourages others to also give.

Those ripples are bound to return to the giver at some point.

What a wonderful world would evolve if we all turned our attentions away from our egos’ self-centered desires…and toward our hearts’ yearnings.

Our deepest desires come from the true self.

And as Thomas Merton said in his book New Seeds of Contemplation, “If I find Him (God), I will find myself, and if I find my true self I will find Him (God).”

What could be more important than that?
