a-z challenge R: Receiving is as necessary as giving.

Continuing with the exploration of the book 'Creating Affluence' by D.Chopra

R – Receiving is as Necessary as Giving

To graciously receive is an expression of the dignity of giving (what does this mean?)

.Giving and receiving are simply different aspects of the flow of energy in the universe.(Yin and Yang)

 People who are incapable of receiving are also incapable of giving wholeheartedly, with no expectation of something in return. (we may be programmed that it is more blessed to give than to receive..let's change that now)

 Your ability to receive a compliment, respect, or admiration also implies the ability to be able to give these to others.

 So fill yourself up with love and respect so you are now overflowing with it and you are now in a position to give it away.

 The more you give, the more you get.(but that should not be the motive for giving surely?)

How open to receiving are you?

Is it easier to give or receive, or do you experience both equally? 


  1. You can't expect to receive if you don't give first. Great post!

  2. I think I'm better at giving than receiving, but you're right, it's worth working on!

    Good luck with the A to Z Challenge!

  3. For me, giving is a gift that provides instant return; I'm less able to receive.

  4. I think giving is far more rewarding and more important then receiving. I don't think you have to receive to give or be able to give. I do believe it is more blessed to give then receive.
