Living And Giving

Whatever you give away today,
or think or say or do 
will multiply about tenfold
and then return to you. 

It may not come immediately,
nor from the obvious source
but the law applies unfailingly,
through some invisible force. 

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.
