Life pushes for change, but even as you focus on changing yourself, on your own goals and intentions, look outside of yourself and give a little in small kindnesses, in gestures of appreciation for what you have, forgetting for a moment what you lack. It is often only in getting out of the self that you discover that you are not so bad off after all, and that your own discomforts may be small in comparison with those of others. In this manner learn compassion and awaken your heart to its true desires to give rather than receive. A giving heart is a good heart indeed! And the funny thing is, in giving you receive!
