The heart teaches you to exert when you’re giving and then relax in order to receive. Most people operate in the exact reverse way to this…exerting to get is the most common reason for working.

However, when you exert to get, you never actually experience the sensation of receiving. @gurusinghdaily (Click to Tweet!)

Not actual receiving

This then binds you to the constant effort of working to get, and sensing the emptiness of not receiving…such is the core to the malady called greed… “the constant struggle to receive.”

The masterful heart, that teaches how to abundantly receive without being greedy, is surrounded by two other great teachers…these are the lungs. The lungs are always quite filled — this is their natural state when at rest — you have to work hard to completely empty them. Whenever you fully relax, they fill back up… they are naturally fulfilled. Masters have known for millennia — and science is quickly learning — within each breath of these lungs, are the answers to each moment; the solutions to the problems are within this state of fulfillment. The breath doesn’t hold the infinite information, it holds the infinite reference, and the inference is your quest…this is all the filter. The combination of this filter and your breathing produces the information of the answers and the solutions…when you relax, you receive this…this is the basic nature of faith and confidence.

Our prayer is that you use these natural heartfelt realities to achieve that which you want to receive. Live in faith…the greed-free prosperity of your every breath… confident, that you are so fortunate…that the infinite, will take care of it… all of it.
