Year end is one of the key shopping period, a festive season to celebrate Christmas and also New Year.
Most of the shopping complexes, restaurant, hotel, are all decorated well for the Christmas and New Year.
Last weekend, I went for a walk in shopping complex.
It was beautifully decorated, shinning lighting and full of the celebration mode.
So crowded, A lot of people doing their shopping either gift for themselves or gift for family or friends.
One question come to my mind, how do you buy a gift for others?
Based on your preferences?
Based on the person’s preferences?
Based on other’s needs?
For the sake of gift exchanging party?
Do you ever receive any gift that you “Don’t need”? and
You need to find way to give to others?
If this is actually happened, you might also contributing the same incident to other’s life.
Giving something that other’s don’t need but we assume they “NEED”.
Are we using or wasting too much natural resources?
Think about it?
Considering about this point, I started to give something special to my friends which is suitable for everyone.
I am giving a donation on behalf of them, a receipt written on their names.
A donation which can cheer up and brighten other’s life.
It can also encourage them on the spirit of giving to those unfortunate group.
To sow the seed of kindness and the beauty of kindness will be spread too.
More important this act can reduce the usage of natural resources.
It’s so meaningful!
Before you buy anything to others, please remember to check whether he or she, “NEED”, if not you can try for “on behalf of Donation.”
Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.
By Dalai Lama XIV
May you bring happiness to cheer up others life!
