giving and receiving

Being kind and polite can mean many things. It can mean giving freely without any kind of inner motive. It can mean being sensitive to another and their thoughts. It can mean detaching from the thought to argue and taking a neutral take on the experience. Being gracious is what kind and polite is. It can mean being generous  and open minded with others who may not be generous and open minded.

By being gracious you can go from experience to experience with a feeling and thought of kindness. It will help you to give and to receive more freely without attachments of the end result, and it can help in others loving you, and even help in your own thoughts about yourself.

How about keeping being gracious in the first and foremost of your mind and heart today and reach out to help another who comes across your life path?
