The heart grows by giving out.


To the loved one i shared this piece of thought..
I always carried a special name card. A card without the company i represent, but rather is a personal card depicting my personality and my belief. On one surface you sure to laugh when you read those contents, and the next page is worded with this powerful phrase; My belief: The Mind grows by taking in, but The Heart grows by giving out."

Each time when i encountered friends who were facing some life problems, i would not hesitate to offer this magical name card to them. I would ask them to read aloud this sentence, "The Mind grows by taking in, but The Heart grows by giving out."

Most people taught they understood the proverb because it sounded simple in language. However deep down the line, it has so much to give and take in life. I used to explain to my friends, the minute one stop to learn in life, immaterial of how young or old you are, your life will be at a standstill. When you stop to learn, you will not progress and your mind will not expand. Soon you will be left behind, when everything seems so uninteresting to you anymore. You should be more confidence when you have a learning mind which grows by being knowledgeable in every sense of this world.

Having a learning mind without a contented heart is another setback most people face. The heart is where you have to willingly give all the time. Willing to share, willing to help, willing to contribute and willing to give your love whole heartily without condition and expectation, will definitely makes you a joyful and a happy human being on earth. Most friends taught they have a willing heart but at the end of our discussion, money is the main sensitive issue which most people are not willing to give. Money is the vital attraction which all of us need and want. The minute when money is involved, there bound to have some feeling and emotion. Either you don't benefit or you might lose some form of value, the heart might consider not to give willingly or the heart might feel the pain of losing. The unique of the heart when you are prepared and have accepted to grow by giving out, you are one step higher than the one who refused to understand this power of thought.

Unless you truly have some wisdom or wise enough to follow a wiser person, it's difficult to allow the heart to grow by giving out all the time. For the mind to grow by taking in is easy but the second part is meant for the blessed one. For those who could practise this way of life in good faith, i am sure your mind will be peaceful and calm, making you a happy person on earth. I speak from the heart.
