Either Direction

"She was asked what she had learned from the Holocaust, and she said that 10% of the population is cruel, no matter what, and that 10% is merciful, no matter what, and that the remaining 80% could be moved in either direction."--Kurt Vonnegut

Sharing

Most of our sharing efforts are not necessarily  spiritual sharing. We tend to share what’s convenient for us, and when it’s convenient for us. These actions might make us a nice person, but they don’t bring blessings into our lives. 
The great sages taught that if you give something and feel good about it, you are actually receiving that feeling to your ego. Spiritual sharing – the kind that brings blessings into our lives – is when it is really difficult for us. The more uncomfortable it is for us to give, the more we can truly receive from it. That’s spiritual sharing!
