Was it ever mine?

Was it ever mine?: How different this notion is from a sense of scarcity, of needing to learn to let go each and every time we give.  I find this notion freeing.  We approach giving with the knowledge that what we are giving away was never ours; we approach giving with a sense of humility and with the knowledge that good fortune has played a role in our own good circumstances, and we are passing on a bit of that good fortune to another.

[Very well said. I can’t help wonder if this notion eases my ability to give. That is, if it was never mine, it’s easier to give. What if I consider it all mine? Is it harder? Still working on this for myself.]
