No Give & Take, Just Spring in Your Heart

No Give & Take, Just Spring in Your Heart

How to balance the give and take of life? A common saying in the Tamil language warns that both the one who always gives and the one who always takes will be ruined. Sadhguru responds to this aphorism, explaining that one who is in tune with the life process, who is like springtime within himself, will naturally give whatever is needed.

There is a common saying in Tamil that means, “The family that always donates gets ruined, the family that always receives also gets ruined” – both the giver and the taker!

Sadhguru On The Tamil Saying

  • Essentially, what they are referring to is either always receiving and living on aid, or indiscriminately giving not because of what the situation needs.
  • If you are giving because you feel that by giving you are being good or that you will buy a ticket to heaven, it is definitely not okay.
  • But when you see a need, if you are unwilling to give whatever you could give, you are not human at all.
  • So giving is not the problem.

Don't Give For Satisfaction

  • The problem arises when you give not because the situation needs it, but for your own satisfaction.
  • This is happening because human beings are seeking their happiness and peace in so many weird ways.
  • They believe that if they give today, they will get peace somewhere else.
  • No, peace and joy happen only within you.
  • If your humanity is on, you will give where you feel it is needed.
  • I would not even call it giving – sharing is very natural for a human being.
  • One’s joy multiplies in anything only by sharing.

Don’t Teach Morality, Stir up Humanity

Unfortunately, we have always tried to teach goodness to people, not human sense. Instead of stirring up the humanity in the human heart, we are always trying to teach morals of goodness.

Whether you give because you think you will go to heaven or you give because it will give you fulfillment or satisfaction, this is still a transaction. It is just business.

In Tune with the Life Process

If you understand the process of life, there is really no give and take.

  • Life is so interconnected. If you inhale and exhale, a transaction is happening between you and the plant life around you. This is not a choice. This is the way the life process happens.
  • If you are in tune with this constant transaction of giving and receiving – or simply sharing – in your life, you will be in tune with the life process.

Otherwise you will create resistance against the life process by having ideas which are different from the way life happens, and slowly you will suffer.

Embrace Spring Time

If you look at most people in this world, they do not look like springtime. They look like they are in the depths of winter. Their hearts have become frosty simply because they are not in tune with life around them. For every other creature on this planet, nature has fixed seasons.

A tree flowers in a certain season. An animal mates in a certain season. For human beings, nature left you free – no seasons.

Life Is A Constant Transaction

Nature trusted your intelligence and awareness that, if given a choice, you will naturally choose to be in the best possible way every day of the year.

Nature believed that you will be springtime 365 days, but people have chosen to be winter for all the 365 days. Off and on, springtime flashes once in a way. They smile only when they are tickled.  

These ideas of giving and taking have essentially come because we have lost our life sense. If we have some life sense, we understand that life is a constant transaction. No one can live in exclusiveness. There is something beyond, which is absolute.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
