Those who lose will get back soon but if lost for a good cause.

When we give or sacrifice for others, we get back from a different source. If we give by one hand, we are likely to get from the other hand when and how we never know.

This principle of give and take persists for ages. If we read Bhagwad Gita which educates us with the teachings, “ACTION IS THY DUTY-REWARD IS NOT THY CONCERN.”

But we sometimes forget these teachings and exchange our services with monetary gains. When we talk of selfless service, we talk of giving without any consideration.

Here, I cite the example of any eventuality outside our home where many unknown persons come forward for help and go away, and we even do not get a chance to bid thanks for their gesture.

A similar situation may occur with us too. We rush for help and go away without waiting for thanks. The idea of giving this example is that if we give by one hand, we are likely to get by the other hand when and how that nobody knows.

There are many people engaged in charity around us without any consideration. If you ask them the reason, they simply say, “I am given all this by SOMEONE now I am returning the same to OTHER ONE.”

People believe this fact of life that whatever excess they have belongs to others also. The whole cycle of giving and taking is the law of nature. We give service to nature by planting and get fresh air in return.

The whole idea of writing this article is to understand the need and importance of giving. Giving gives space for taking. If we continue and insist on only taking, after some time, the space of taking ends. Those who give get entitlement of taking.

Beggars are always beggars and are unable to uplift themselves because they are always taking and do not believe in giving.

Here, I want to share a story where a beggar was asked by a traveller as to why he should give money to him. Unless he gives something back to him, he will not give money. Even a flower will do. The beggar got the idea and collected flowers. The next day the same traveler gave him 5 rupees for that flower and went away. Now, that beggar became a vendor of flowers because he was taking money and giving flowers.

The whole narration of WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND is based on the principle of maintaining a cycle of giving and taking. Unless we are ready to give up, others will not give us.
