In giving one receives. In giving one finds out what one is made of. In giving one discovers just how much to give, for there is such a thing as giving too much. Each individual must be responsible for the self, care for the self, exert the self in life, and yet also learn how to live a life of balance and harmony, and that means learning the art of generosity balanced with the art of protection, the art of giving balanced with the art of self-care. The art of generosity begins with care of the self, so that all that you do is truly generous and in right balance, within and without.
