fullness

At our last Buddhist meetup group we were talking about generosity and lack, the difference between martyrs and bodhisattvas...
One person commented "when you give it is important to be giving because you are already full - not because you'll feel full (or think you'll feel full by doing something good."

I've been feeling pretty full and fortunate lately - seems like a good time to contemplate the my nature of giving.

And the nature of your typing. ;-)

Glad to hear about the Buddhist meetup. Sounds like a good conversation.
