This is the season of gift giving. When gifts are given and received there is often an underlying dynamic that boils down to the formula: Giving = Getting. In giving there is often something wanted in return – even if it is a “thank you.” When a gift is received there is also something expected to be given – at the very least, appreciation of the gift.
When we give, we want to get – and when we get, we are expected to give.
The underlying “wanting” expressed in the giving/getting drama is not peaceful or joyful or grateful. These are transactions that take place between persons. Dr. Hora has referred to them as “bribes.”
In Metapsychiatry and other enlightened teachings, it is impossible for people to give or receive. Giving is a gift of God, as is receiving. Neither can be done. It is a holy process that takes place in consciousness.
God gives continuously and freely the gifts of life which in human consciousness is recognized as intelligence, love, creativity, prosperity, harmony, joy, and more. It is the nature of God that this giving occurs. These gifts are received in consciousness as individuals become aware of the grace of God.
As this awareness fills individual consciousness, true generosity becomes possible – one individual can responds to manifest needs with no strings attached.
A man can receive nothing except it be given to him from heaven.
You cannot ‘do’ generosity. Dr. Hora
