If we were only taught in school useful information and knowledge about how the world works and how to live our lives on a daily basis things would be very different from they are today. Unfortunately, that is not happening yet and it is up to each one of us to seek this time-tested knowledge out if we want a better life and a more peaceful world.
One of these very powerful lessons is very short and sweet but do not let that fool you because it can change your life dramatically. You only have to be willing to put it into practice and then watch as it changes your experience of life.
Unto those that hath shall be given, and they shall have abundance: but from those that hath not shall be taken away even that which they have. – The Gospel according to Saint Matthew
Even though the quote above is from the bible, know that similar knowledge can be found in other spiritual text and teachings. If you are not a believer then do not let the fact that this quote comes from the bible get in your way because all you have to do is put it into practice to see the results for yourself.
In simple terms the quote says, the more patient you are with people the more patience you will have. The more love you give, the more loving you become. The more generous you are today, the more generosity you will have tomorrow. The simplest things in life are often the most powerful, if we are only willing to give them a try. I suspect that you have already experienced this in your own life so what is keeping you from putting this very simple principle into practice. I guarantee the results will speak for themselves.
