When you are kind to nature and not ask anything in return. You are blessed with abundance!

It reminded us, to apply this important wisdom in life, when you are doing good deeds, not to ask anything in return. Sometimes, we are “demanding” or “expecting” something in return when we are kind to others, if he or she can’t meet our “expectation”, we might be frustration and arouse negative emotion. Ask for nothing and continuously with your genuine “giving” from heart.

“Those who are happiest are those who do the most for others.”

  1. Your garden is so full of beauty and abundance! Such flowers and leaves! What a beautiful way to understand how keeping flowering and fruiting plants brings joy to the household. Your Jasmine is different from ours, but we have a similiar looking and fragrant flower on our Gardenia shrub. Best wishes, Li Jiun. Thank you for this beautiful New Year’s post. WG
