SPIRITUAL WISDOM

The Four Powerful Effects of Giving

Published

on

After studying the world’s major religions, it dawned on me that they all support generosity. Besides this, I also realized that many Great People encourage the act of giving.

I, therefore, extensively researched on the reasons why we are encouraged to give, and I stumbled upon some sensible opinions from the world’s most influential speakers/authors.

  1. We Identify With The Creator Through Giving  – Micheal Laitman – The Kaballah Revealed

According to Micheal Laitman, something within us turns outwards during giving and makes us identify with The Creator. Besides this, he teaches that when we give, we realize that God is the Giver of everything we have.

‘If all we want is to receive, then we can’t relate with The Giver because there’s nothing that turns outwardly to see where the reception is coming from.’ – Micheal Laitman: The Kaballah Revealed

  1. Life Supports Givers – Tony Robbins

Tony Robbins believes that life supports givers because they improve the quality of life. He teaches that life gives givers strength when they are exhausted, hence motivating them to do more. For this reason, givers are often more productive, and they usually have creative solutions to problems.

  1. Giving Makes You a Home of God’s Grace – Sadhguru

Sadhguru believes that giving enables The Divine/God’s grace to dwell in you because when you open your heart to give, you allow The Divine grace to enter you.

He also teaches that you become happy, and in a state of union with The Creator when his Grace enters you.

  1. Giving Protects You From Calamity – Yasmin Mogahed

Giving enables God to protect you from calamity because God loves the people who give. Furthermore, giving protects us from disasters because it enables the ‘heavens’ to show mercy on us.

Just before I researched on the practice of giving, I realized that people who give a lot tend to live more peacefully and longer than selfish individuals. For this reason, I firmly support Yasmin Mogahed on the fact that giving protects individuals from calamities.

Be merciful to the Creation, and Allah will show mercy to you – Yasmin Mogahed

Book Review

The Top 5 Amazing Takeaways from Yasmin Mogahed’s book: RECLAIM YOUR HEART

Published

on

Yasmin Mogahed’s book, Reclaim Your Heart, was written to free your heart from slavery and enable you to have a positive perception towards hardships. The book also reveals the importance of placing our hope in God and advises us on how to react when we fall.

Besides this, the book is inspiring and also easy-to-read. I learned several things from the book, and I believe it made me wiser.

Here are 5 remarkable lessons I learned from Yasmin Mogahed’s book.

  1. Pain Warns Us That Something is Wrong

According to Yasmin, pain is a warning that something is wrong and we need to make changes in our lives. For example, heart-breaks tell us that we are too attached to a particular person, and we need to let go of him/her. They force us to make internal changes.

  1. The importance of Hardships

Hardships purify our souls and move us closer to God. They also remind us about the Greatness of God, and how small we are compared to his greatness. Difficulties awaken us from our recklessness and show us where we are heading to. For this reason, we must embrace hardships

  1. Life is a Test

‘The present world is an illusory pleasure: you are sure to be tested through your possessions and persons’ – Yasmin Mogahed, Reclaim Your Heart

We must realize that Life is a test that God uses to bring us closer to Him. Besides this, we must see life as a test because this perception enables us to realize that we can learn something from everything that happens to us. Lastly, we must strive to realize how we can pass the test of life.

  1. The Importance of Fasting

Yasmin teaches that fasting enables us to control our soul’s desires because it makes us learn to restrain our physical desires. By learning to avoid eating food while no one is watching, fasting also trains us to avoid indulging in immoral activities when people aren’t watching.

  1. The Definition of Spiritual Awakening

Spiritual awakening occurs when you realize that you had a wrong perception of the world. For this reason, awakening enables you to have a truer and beautiful life. It makes you fully aware and makes you realize that you can do and have anything you want. Lastly, when you awaken, nothing from your past will matter.

I believe these lessons will be of help to you on the journey of life. You are welcome to share in the comment box below the lesson you think is the most valuable.
