Sharing is Love
"Generous sharing of all resources is one way to express love. These resources can
be time, attention, material objects, skills, money etc...Once we embark on
love's path we see how easy it is to give."--bell hooks
Our ancestors understood our survival was connected to sharing resources. Sharing informed community and a sense of belonging. Individualism often resulted in death for many of our ancestors. Fast forward today, we are conditioned to believe individualism is strength, and sharing is naive. However, ironically, many of us are dying spiritually and emotionally because of the isolation of individualism. What if we return to sharing? What if we understood sharing with others will nourish us and allow everyone to thrive.
