You can’t receive or keep it, unless you give it away!
When it comes to such things as love, happiness, knowledge, truth, honor, honesty, passion, etc. the only way to receive it and keep it, is by giving it away.
Everything is energy and the law of attraction is universal. Be a reflection of what you’d like to see most in others. If you want love, give love. If you want money, give money. If you want respect, give respect. If you want honesty, give honesty. If you want help, help someone else. You always get in return what you give.
You will discover that you will not always receive back from the person, place or thing you gave to. Most times it’s from somewhere else entirely – and many times it’s a surprise.
