Cultivate Generosity

Take a moment today to practice being generous towards yourself.  Give something that is not necessarily material or tangible, but something that comes from your core being.  Perhaps it is a genuine smile, acknowledgement of a job well done, or appreciation for making time to take good care of yourself.

This may sound strange as we are more accustomed to being generous with others but the practice of inward generosity is one of the foundations of mindfulness.  When we cultivate generosity towards ourself without conditions, we build our capacity to be generous in the external world without expectations for any returns or gains.  Eventually, we come to realize that the more we genuinely give of ourselves, the more we naturally receive. Don’t wait another moment.  Cultivate generosity within as a necessary basic for living mindfully.
