It is in Giving that we Receive

A Loving Atma Namaste! 
The Teacher had many interesting habits … 
For example: This soul noticed that when He had a Attraction to a certain "Thing" - Frequently He would Shop for & Buy that things to which He was attracted - then with great satisfaction He would Gift the cherished objects to other people! 
For example He gave away many: Big Screen TV's, Wrist Watches, Blessed Medallions, Cars, Books & other "Things" … He was also very conscious of not accumulating excessive personal things Himself. Sometimes He would go to His closets - & after looking inside - He would say, "So many things!" … Then He would begin pulling out all of those things He considered to be Excessive - keeping only that which He actually needed or found useful. Then He would give away all of those "Excessive Things" to some lucky souls who were VERY Happily to receive His "old" shirts, shoes, socks etc … Then He would ask the maids to burn the rest. 
He also did this with household items - for example, Piles of old towels, sheets and other "things" which were "Released" in this way … 
For this soul - these Observations were a Powerful Lesson -
Our Love of Possessions needs to be Regulated … & of course we need to Remember that: It is in Giving that we Receive! (Extracted from the Prayer of St. Francis) 
Loving Blessings be with All!
