Generosity cures self-absorption by being aware that others around us are also going through the ups and downs of life.
There are many forms of generosity that do not require giving material items to others.
One, is giving of our time.
This can be from being a compassionate listener to any person that needs a friendly ear in that moment.
And this often happens to me when out shopping. I sit at an eatery to have coffee and generally end up being
a listener to a lonely older citizen who just needs someone to spend the time of day with. I quite enjoy this, too.
Giving of our time can take in a large list of activities, some organized and some spontaneous. Recognizing others'
needs prevents us from becoming totally self-absorbed, and if you think deeply about it, we are all going through
some type of change in our lives, even bereavements and families going their own way. We are really not that
different from one another.
One might even think that concentrating on our spiritual ascension is being self-absorbed, but that is a different
matter alltogether. As we raise our vibrations and clear out stagnant energy, we not only benefit ourselves, but
benefit all those we come into contact with as well. This adds to the collective spiritual ascenion energies.
