The Serenity Prayer

Today’s thought from Hazelden is:

The universe operates through dynamic exchange . . .
 — Deepak Chopra

The word currency comes from the Latin word currere, which means “to run,” as in “to flow.” Currency, or course, is another term for money. By definition, money is meant to be exchanged. We give and receive it. We’ve probably all heard the expressions “What goes around comes around,” “Give and you shall receive,” and “You get what you give.” We’ve probably all experienced this phenomenon as well, sometimes with surprise or even amazement.

When we feel we’re lacking, we open our hearts to giving. When we give what we seek, we find it returns to us at the right time and place – just when we need it, reminding us that we do not lack for anything. Gifts needn’t be material or verbal. They can be good thoughts and prayers, affection, or time.

Today I will give joyfully, knowing that my needs will be met.
