“All that we send into the lives of others comes back into our own.” – Edwin Markham
When I think of gratitude, universal law, the law of attraction, the Golden Rule or reciprocity I am always drawn to images in my mind of the ocean. The rhythm of the ocean, the flow of the ocean, how the beach continues to give while the ocean takes and then returns back to the beach the same elements it was given, in addition to a little bit more from farther out and deeper within the ocean. If you think about it in that context, then universal law doesn’t seem so mystifying. The beauty of God’s teachings for us is that we can see the lesson all around us, if we take a moment to look. Next time, think about the ocean and how the sea works in conjunction with the moon and the beach on a continuous basis. As long as all three parties are giving, they are getting it back, and then some, in return.
God is real.
