Giving is Receiving
10 December, 2015
We live in the 21st century, a developing stage. Some people satisfy with it, some don’t. Those who don’t satisfy always question “where is the democracy?” Now I want to ask everyone some questions:
“Have you eaten some fresh food?”
“Have you been to schools when you were a child?”
“Did you enjoy playing football or other games?”
“Are you wearing new clothes?”
People might think “what are you talking about?”
The gap between rich people and poor people is getting bigger in every nation. If everyone can donate one dollar and use it for the poor, they get flowers and gifts when they are sick, then the world will be so peaceful. Sometimes things you can do are minor but it could mean a lot to other people. You might not be noticing that a little dollar giving away from you, or a pair of unwanted shoes giving away could be a part of some people’s life.
John D. Rockefeller was the richest person in late 18th century and early 19th century; he was the king of oil. He donated about 500 million dollars into schools and other institutes. He help funded the University of Chicago. He will never know that he helped millions of students. He received respect and gratitude without knowing it and even after so many years he died, schools still honor him and thank him.
Giving is receiving and even you don’t know it, you didn’t expect it or you never ask for it. The karma will come around. That is the world I believe in.
