7. Gifts of Love
When you have benefited someone consolidate your kindness on
gift that you did, so you do not humiliate the recipient.
Does not object against those who speak for the simple pleasure of been contradicted.
Grants information, without detracting who requests it.
Talk without wishing to look bigger or better than bystanders.
Get used to avoid confrontations to not hurt the sensibilities of the beholder.
Tolerate the unfortunate remarks of a friend without irritation and without retaliation.
Cultivate patience in difficult times, refraining from aggravating troubles and problems.
Do not attempt another’s heart, with the promise that you do not want and neither can fulfill.
Assist in the well, by the joy of serving without expecting acknowledgments attitudes.
Does not require the cooperation of other tasks that you can perform by yourself.
Spreading these gifts of love, you will be doing in the exchange organization of life your best investment for peace and happiness.
We all have problems.
And life always offers us solutions through the next.
Is your audience;
And your tax man.
From others we get:
The support to the work;
The comfort in the trials;
The invitation to progress;
The lesson in the experience;
The relief in crises;
The warning in error;
The stimulus to the service;
The challenge to improve;
Cooperation in the task;
And the support to support itself.
When the law recommended us:
“Love your neighbor“, it is warning us that when helping others, we are actually helping ourselves.
9. For the others
If you believe you can achieve spiritual sublimation without the other, for sure, you still have not found the truth.
The life was created, to the feature of complex machine in which the differentiated parts, keep among themselves specific function.
Do not run away or isolate yourself from your group, if you want to improve and progress.
The others are the areas designed to complement and improve our own reflections.Through them, it is that you analyze to observe safely.
Do not attempt to turn them immediately, because, as it happens to us, they are evolving spirits, walking between difficulties and shadows for higher knowledge.
Some teach us patience, others teach us to understand, while others, the imperative of kindness as much as we are personally for each of these live tests in those subjects.
Believe me, when others appear in the manner of problems, we are for them too, problems to be solved.
You say that you need to identify with life and it is found to make the best. However, only for others it is that you find yourself, and perform for the supreme achievements of happiness and love.
Usually we waste time in useless grief, when we find ourselves in conflict with someone or vice versa.
However, let’s see:Other people think according to Their imagination;
They speak what seems best to them;
They do what they want;
They embrace what they like;
They acquire what they estimate;
They value what they love most;
They lean towards what attracts them;
Living with those that are most attune;
They are on the path they have chosen;
They always find what they seek.
11. Ticket in Response
Our work is the revelation of ourself. To serve is our best chance.
When you act on behalf of someone, you are inducing others to act in your benefit.
Never get tired of helping for good.
Forgive always, because we all have someday the need of forgiveness.
Difficulty is a test of patience.
The disdain of someone is the lesson of life to acquire humility.
It is not always that you will get what you want, but while helping others, you will find the resources you need.
After great effort to solve this or that problem, do not shake, if another problem appears ordering you new effort because God will renew your strength to start again.
