It was 8:30 this morning and I was already on my second plane. I was meditating with my eyes closed while they finished boarding, when someone gently placed her hand on my shoulder. I opened my eyes and a woman I’ve never met leaned over and whispered in my ear, “You have beautiful eyes.”
I thanked her as she moved to the back of the plane. Suddenly the 4 am wakeup call, the one-hour weather detour, and having seat 1B without the usual legroom didn't seem so irritating...
I have no idea who this lady was, or when she saw my eyes, but I know this: She gave me a gift. Which I gratefully received. And there’s a great prosperity lesson for you in that…
How are you with receiving? Do you allow others to sometimes do things for you? Will you ask for help when you need it? Can you accept a compliment without brushing it off?
Many people think prosperity is about independence and self-sufficiency. I think it may be more about intra-dependence and sharing; giving AND receiving. It is having the self-esteem to know you are worthy, and accepting.
The greatest prosperity lesson you can ever learn is the ability to receive a gift.
