When you are helping others, do you expect something in return?
When you are kind to others, do you expect anything in return?
When you present a gift to others, do you expect any return?
If there is no return from others, are you continuously to give your unconditional love and kindness to others?
Are you disappointed if others not return your kindness?
Are you sad or angry when others not appreciated your helping hand or kindness?
I read a profound teaching from Master Cheng Yen, let’s contemplate and practice…
“Learn to develop pure and unconditional love; a love that has no sense of gain or loss,
that asks for nothing in return.
In this way we can free from worries.”
When you don’t expect anything in return, you are always happy as you are able to contribute and help others. It’s so awesome when we are able to serve others. What a great opportunity in life to bring happiness and look at smiling faces.
My lovely mum, she gave her unconditional love and kindness to my neighbor’s grand-daughter. The little girl is so cute, about 5 years old. She will call and chat with my mum whenever she see her around. The Little girl loved my mum’s cooking too. Sometimes, she will ask my mum to cook noodle or dessert. Of course, my mum will cook with happy and full hearted.
My parent never expect anything from their unconditional love and kindness to the little girl, yet they received the lovable hand-made gift. It touched and warmth their heart.
Let’s give your unconditional love and beautify the surrounding!
