By Giving You Never Lose
Give until it hurts, but don’t lose your peace. It’s all right not to help others if it will help you in preserving your own peace. If you’re going to lose your peace, then how are you going to help others? When you’re easeful and peaceful, then you can be useful. Otherwise, you may even harm rather than help the situation.
Don’t do something if you know that by doing it you’re going to disturb your peace. Maintaining your peace is more important. But at the same time, give as much as you can. Even if you get hurt, it doesn’t matter. Give. Because by giving, you never lose. There is a joy in thinking of others first. You will have more peace and joy in doing that.
