We all feel ourselves spending energy throughout the day, to support others, to support ourselves. Remember the cycle, though, for to give is to receive, but you have to be…willing. A hug is a gift, for example, but it goes both ways. Think of how your other energy gifts actually reciprocate, even if you don’t see it right away (paying forward with that smile at the convenience store—what ripples of energy might occur and then come back to you?).
A star exchanges energy for stability to burn, then exchanges energy for the power to create elements (gold and silver, even, if it’s a big star). Loss is gain, gain is loss, loss is gain, there is no loss, in the end (because there is no end—to the exchange).
Breathing gives, and receives. Breathe, live. Remember to receive as well as give, and you will always be full.
