A Giving Heart

This  month I am participating in Deepak Chopra’s 21 day meditation challenge.   The meditation for today was on Giving.  In the visualization, the leader suggested that we think of a tangible object that means everything to us.  I could really only think of one thing – my house key.  I know it sounds silly – not my wedding ring, not pictures of my family – my house key.  But to me, having my own key has always meant that I belong – that I am someone.  And now that we are in imminent danger of losing our house, I suppose that key means even more.

In the next part of the visualization, the leader suggested that we give our object to someone who we love dearly.   I realized that in handing over the key to my house, I was also handing over the key to my heart.  And since the person I love dearly is my husband, I knew that he would always let me in, even if I didn’t have the key.

All this reminded me of a song I learned a long time ago.   The Magic Penny:

And it’s true – love is something if you give it away, you end up having more.

Who can you give love to today?
