Talking about the Universal Law of Giving & Receiving has somehow become my pet peeve. Not necessarily on purpose, but merely because of the egoism and even narcissism I sometimes see in people.
Just to clarify, you can be spiritual and be a part of the new age community and still have some egocentric behaviours. We all sometimes pop into our Ego, or as I prefer to call it, our Fear-Based Mind.
A Little Note about the Ego.
For some reason, I don’t really like to use the word “Ego” in my teaching. Maybe because it’s too fluffy and up in the air. Every spiritual teacher has received the question “… but what is an Ego?” Just the fact that so many people feel the need to ask “what an Ego is” tells me that the term isn’t specific enough.
The Ego has also got a terrible reputation, like something some people think they should avoid at all costs. Even people within the spiritual and new age communities claim they don’t have an Ego anymore because they have been working so much on themselves. I hate being the one breaking it to you, but that is simply not true! The very fact that you’re alive in a human body walking the Earth means that you do, in fact, have an Ego!
Let me put it this way… without an Ego, we wouldn’t be able to survive on Earth. It’s the Ego that tells us…
The Law of Giving & Receiving.
This Universal Law of Giving & Receiving says in order to live a balanced life, you must ensure that you give to others as much you receive from them, and you receive from others as much as you give to them.
You Can Call it Karma if You Want.
Karma is, btw, its own Universal Law, so not 100% the same. Nevertheless, the more you learn about the different Universal Laws (I’m sharing a new Universal Law on my blog every month) you’ll notice how they often overlap each other. There is an infinite number of Universal Laws, so of course, there will be some overlaps. It can be confusing for sure.
What is The Law of Giving & Receiving?
The best way to describe this law is by looking at it like an old pharmacy scale – to live a balanced life, there must be equality between the scale pans. What you give must be equal to what you receive.
What are the Consequences of Ignoring the Law of Giving & Receiving?
You won’t experience any consequences immediately. Like anything else, it takes time for your actions to manifest into reality. As mentioned in other articles, your most dominant thoughts, emotions, and actions create your reality.
If You Give More than You Receive.
If you have been giving more than you’ve received, you’ll feel unhappy, depressed, taken advantage of, and used.
You have taught people that they can always come to you for help, and you would never ask for anything in return.
If You Receive More than You Give.
Suppose you have been receiving more than you’ve given. In that case, you’ll feel alone, unhappy, unsatisfied, and have a bad taste in your mouth.
