Week 13-a You ARE The Gift!

LetterToYourself-1024x640This week is going to be the best week of my life!  I had a very powerful realization while thinking on the giving card this morning during my “sit”.  I was thinking and visualizing about how we are really a part of the whole, how we are channels/tools for God to produce good in this world.  I began to recite from my memory the giving cards and what I learned from myself is quite amazing and humbling.  Here is what the card says and what I learned:

  1. “Wherever I go, I bring a gift.  It may be a compliment, prayer, trinket, flower, or a smile but I promise to give something to every person I encounter”.  I realized that I AM THE GIFT!  Wherever I go I bring myself and I am a tool and conduit of good.  It’s me, not the trinket or the flower, but me.  If something is given it is because of ME and what’s in ME.  It is not the “thing” but the person who is the gift.
  2. “I promise to be a grateful receiver of the gifts that surround me, noticing nature, kindnesses, smiles, and compliments; which I gladly receive with a thank you” Again, each of these things I am set out to notice are really noticing OTHERS bringing a gift wherever THEY go.  So I bring myself (the gift), they bring themselves (the gift).  How powerful to view the people in our lives situations as the ones “bringing the gift”
  3. “I promise to give hope for joy, affluence, kindness and love; consciously with every encounter regardless of brevity.”  This one blew me away.  I realized that I AM THE HOPE.  Not like God or anything like that but who I am, what I do, how I live…………that automatically gives hope to others.  They feel it, see it, and want it.  It was just cool to understand that it wasn’t me saying stuff to bring hope of joy, affluence, kindness and love………..it was me HAVING joy, affluence, kindness, and love that brought hope to others
  4. “I promise to give without expectation of reciprocity from the channels I enrich because I know I am in the dynamic flow of giving and receiving”.  Finally, this last sentence, stuck me because it would be hard to expect reciprocity from the channel when you don’t know what the channel is.  Why don’t you know what the channel is?????  Because you are just being you and just being you is bringing a gift wherever you go.  Just being you is producing gratefulness all around.  Just being you is giving hope to those around you.

These are the kind of results or thoughts that my work in MKMMA is producing.  How cool to realize that you are a gift and that you are a tool of good for the world and that by growing into the person you want to be, you are being a gift to the world.

    • Thanks much jwest. If I made a shirt with a blog post on it I would have to have your comments on the back of it like a concert shirt has the cities!

  1. Great post, Jason. I can relate. Many times, I’ve had people thank me for this or that, and my response was always, “I was just doing what I do!”. It is sometimes hard to realize that just being who we are is a blessing to others! You have been a great blessing to me!

  2. Hey Jason, great to meet you. Great blog. You are absolutely right. It surprises me how often people are so touched by a lovely compliment, it’s not something they receive on a regular basis. It makes me want to do it more. Looking forward to reading more of your blogs. Grace

  3. Hey Jason, I read the card ever day three times and sometimes lapse in staying ahead of the game. Thank you for sharing your perspective. It reminds me of being a pilot. I learned to always be ahead of the airplane anticipating whatever may come along and to be prepared. Thanks for sparking this in me here and now. I appreciate your great posts. G
