Our solar system's biggest mountain is on Mars.
Olympus Mons on Mars is the tallest mountainon any
of the planets of the Solar System. The mountain is a gigantic
shield volcano (similar to volcanoes found in the Hawaiian
Islands) standing at 26 kilometers tall and sprawling 600
kilometers across. To put this into scale, this makes the
mountain almost three times the height of Mount Everest.

A Generous Heart
In Ancient Egypt, the heart of the deceased was
placed on one side of a scale. A feather was on the other side of
the scale. If your heart was lighter than a feather, you were
blessed with an eternity of bliss. If your heart were found to be
heavier than a feather, well . . . let's just say the idea of
heaven and hell came along well before the time of Christianity,
and Dante had nothing on the Egyptians.
A light heart was one without malice, anger, or lack of kindness
toward others. It was a heart of compassion and love - a generous
heart. Today, as our world shifts into its new dimension, we are
being called to live with a generous heart - to let go of the
fears and move into love; to live in a place where we see plenty
instead of lack; a place where we understand instead of judge; a
place where we give without expectation and receive without
limitation; a place where we trust that we are always in the
right place at the right time and all is unfolding according to a

A generous heart is an enlightened heart. An
enlightened heart is a grateful heart. Once the mind accepts that
all is given to you, that life lives through you, then you are
able to understand that all you need is provided, so it is easy
to share that which you are given. Understand that you are One
simply expressing in a different manner just as the right hand
expresses differently than the left foot, but both are part of
the same oneness of you. When you understand this, you then
understand you are giving to yourself as you give to the other.
When you live in lack and clutch at what you have, your heart
ceases to be generous. When you cease to be generous, life ceases
to be generous with you.

Ways You Can Be of Service
I grew up tithing, giving back a portion of my
income. I still tithe that which I am given, knowing that which I
give comes back to me tenfold. Still, sometimes, when I am
feeling lack, it's hard to write out that check or to give
without expectations of anything coming back. And sometimes it's
overwhelming the offers that come in the mail for people and
organizations in need of money. How do we sort it all out? Here
are a few guidelines that help me. I trust they will also help
Moving from a feeling of lack to a generous heart.
When I have trouble writing out that check, I don't
force myself to do so. Instead, I take a moment or two and
journal as to why I'm feeling lack. Then I write down a few
things for which I'm grateful. This usually works, but if I'm
still feeling lack, or if the feeling of lack returns when I pick
up the check, I do not mail or deliver it immediately. I put the
check aside for an hour or day or so. Before long as I think
about the check and how this money will help others instead of my
lack, no matter what my bank account says, I will start feeling
okay about giving and be able to send the check on its way.
How do we choose to whom to give money where there are
so many who are worthy?
Our personal values will help us make the choices as
to where we send our tithe. Here are my choices:
that feed me. I give to teachers and healers
who have helped me along my spiritual path; to writers, authors,
and speakers who inspire me; and to other newsletters and
magazines that spark me for information I use in this newsletter
and other writings.
Shelters that feed
and house the homeless. People feed me,
so I help feed people.
animals and wildlife conservation organizations. Animals nourish me, so I help to nourish and
conservatories.Nature heals me, so I want to
help keep nature healthy.
What do we do with all the mail from other worthy
We can't help everyone, nor are we asked to. That's
where discernment comes into play. What we can do is to say a
simple prayer. With intent and a gracious heart, bless the
organization and thank them for the good work they do. Then put
the paperwork into the recycle bin, no guilty conscious allowed.
Is tithing always money?
No, we also want to tithe our time and talents. I
may be asked by Spirit to give away a reading, for example, or to
give someone one of my books - or this newsletter - because I
believe in passing along that which I have learned from my
studies and experience.
I have given volunteer hours to soup kitchens,
literacy programs, and animal shelters. Others have given way
more to me than I could ever give to others. For example, a few
weeks ago, several people came to plant flowers and help with the
land where I live. When I was in rehab after a motorcycle spill,
friends brought me clothes, food, books, laughter, flowers, and
they brought me their friendship.
One of the greatest gifts we can give to another is
to be present for them and to listen, just listen with a generous
Giving and Receiving
Giving and receiving is one cycle just as the in breath
and the out breath are one. Breathing in we receive, breathing
out we give, one breath inseparable until the final breath that
separates us from our body. When we live with a generous heart,
we live in the balance of giving and receiving as one, neither
only being the giver nor shutting down our ability to be the
Without giving and receiving as one, there is no
balance. There is only the breath in without the breath out or
the breath out without the breath in. When we give without
receiving, we feel safe. As long as I am giving to you,
you are beholden to me; you must love me, because look how much I
give to you; you can never leave me, because I give you so much,
etc. When we shut down our receiving, we also feel safe. I
don't owe anyone anything; no one ever wants to help me, but I
don't need their help; people always expect something in return;
I don't like feeling beholden to anyone, etc. When we treat
giving and receiving as separate, we are not free to have
healthy, balanced relationships. We are not living with a
Recently, I was entering the checkout line at the
grocery store when a lady pushed her cart in front of me. I
veered and moved over to the next aisle. She then pulled back and
also veered to the same aisle so quickly that I had to jump back.
For some reason, she needed to be in front of me at the checkout
lane, and I could either accept that and live with a generous
heart or spend the waiting time in frustration. In that moment of
time, I chose the former and stayed in the peace and harmony of a
When we choose the generous heart, Spirit works through us in
miraculous ways that are beneficial to us and to others. As it
turned out, the lady did not have enough money to pay for her
purchases. She was 66 cents short. I'm sure you know what
happened next. I was able to give her $1, something most of us
would do, but there's more to this story.
Only moments before, I had been in a place of lack, feeling
frustrated because of the need to watch what I spent because of a
low cash flow. When the lady cut in front of me, my frustration
intensified. When she cut in front of me a second time, I made the
conscious decision to change my experience by moving into a
generous heart. When we move into a generous heart, life becomes
lighter and brighter, and our awareness heightens. (How many
times has someone in front of us needed help, but our awareness
was not lit by a generous heart, so we were unaware of the
other's need?) When I moved into a generous heart, I became aware
of the lady's need, and I was able to help.
"Thank you," she said. Without looking at me, she asked
for my name and address to repay me.
"Pass it forward," I said.
She then turned and looked at me, and I saw a woman beaten down
by life. One side of her mouth drooped by Bell's Palsy or a
stroke. Her tee shirt was misshapen and hung loose around her
neck and shoulders, which were hunched over in weariness. Our
eyes met, locked, and love entered. I felt her gratitude in my
heart, and my heart was lifted and filled with gratitude,
gladdened that I had been at the right place at the right time to
give $1 to someone who gave so much more to me in our Divine
Giving: out breath; in breath: receiving. In the mail that
afternoon, there was a generous check from someone who wanted to
say thanks for helping him along his spiritual path. That evening
a friend bought me dinner to say thanks for helping her through
her dog's illness. The next day, another friend paid my way into
a festival, just because.
It always comes around, this giving and receiving. Always.
Whatever we need, whenever we need it, is ours to receive and we
are always in the right place at the right time to pass along
that which we are to give. Always. As long as we live with a
Breathing in and breathing out; giving and receiving. One.
