If you want to be truly happy:
- Do not mix "business" with "pleasure".
- Don't mistake "friendship" for "love".
If you want to be prosperous:
- Don't mingle with the miserly. You may do business with them and conduct transactions with them, but do not receive gifts from them. Their gifts are smeared with their karmic effects. When you receive gifts from them, you take on their karma too.
If you want to win any battle whether with words or weapons:
- generosity (not to be mistaken with philanthropy)
Philanthropy is being generous without any agenda. When you are being philanthropic, you need a receipt in exchange for your donation. This is a business transaction, it is not generosity.
In order to forgive others, you have to forgive yourself first. It comes from your spirit. You can't give to others what you don't give to yourself. First fill your own vessel with forgiveness, generosity, kindness and compassion before you try to share it with others. You can't give what you don't have. Self-care and self-love is a must before you can care for others or love someone with authenticity.
Leaving you here now, with lots of love and tons of blessings,
