Generosity Day

“Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.”

— Tenzin Gyatso, 14th Dalai Lama

screen_shot_2013-02-12_at_2.00.19_pmIf you haven’t heard about being generous, open any Buddhist text, the Talmud, the Bible, or the Koran.

Generosity is as old as humanity itself. But every act of generosity is as fresh and alive as a new-born baby.

A generous act today passes in an instant but resonates throughout time.

Being human is being generous. It’s part of what makes ‘us’, us. It helps put the ‘we’, in we.

If you haven’t tried it, try being generous. If not with your money, then with your time.

At least once.

On Generosity Day.


Yesterday’s gift of time … With much help, ran the show for Feedbackers Toastmasters’ Open House last night. Thanks to everyone for generously giving a couple hours of their time to make a great event!

About Eric Winger

Our perception of time is key to how we use our time. The most fundamental way to change that perception is to give our time. This opens us up to new opportunities and ideas from which we can build to really make a difference. ... Yes, we *do* have time to make a difference!

  1. Thank you! I really like this thought: A generous act today passes in an instant but resonates throughout time.

    Thanks, Vicki! I really do believe that generosity and kindness, when magnified through the lens of giving time and through others, create something pretty, but fleetingly difficult to recognize in the moment. Yet, when viewed through a lifetime, or humanity’s lifetime, it becomes overwhelmingly beautiful.

    Take care,

    Eric
