Living and Giving

Whatever you give away today

or think or say or do

will multiply about ten fold

and then return to you

It may not come immediately

nor from the obvious source

but the law applies unfailingly,

through some invisible source

Whatever you feel about another

be it love or hate or passion

will surely bounce right back to you

in some clear (or secret) fashion

If you speak about some person

a word of praise or two

soon, tens of other people

will speak kind words of you.

Our thoughts are broadcasts of the soul,

not secrets of the brain

Kind ones bring us happiness

petty ones, untold pain

Giving works as surely

as reflections in a mirror

If hate you send, hate you'll get back

but loving brings love nearer

Remember as you start this day

and duty crowds your mind

that kindness comes so quickly back

to those who first are kind

Let that thought and this one

direct us through each day

The only things we ever keep

are the things we give away.
