Giving And Receiving - Poem by Saiom Shriver

The caring giver
his coins outspills
but it's his love which
does other hearts fill

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Course In Miracles: ' Giving and receiving are the same'

(a friend threw the Course In Miracles into the Potomac
coming upon this lesson.... feeling givers were superior to receivers)

The lesson to which I had the most resistance was 'there are no special relationships'

The Introduction to the Course In MIracles whose 1500 pages are free online:

'This is a course in miracles. It is a required course. Only the time you take it is voluntary. Free will does not mean that you can establish the curriculum. It means only that you can elect what you want to take at a given time. The course does not aim at teaching the meaning of love, for that is beyond what can be taught. It does aim, however, at removing the blocks to the awareness of love's presence, which is your natural inheritance. The opposite of love is fear, but what is all-encompassing can have no opposite.'This Course can therefore be summed up very simply in this way: Nothing real can be threatened. Nothing unreal exists.Herein lies the peace of God.'

'All expressions of love are maximal.'

'The message is first for the messenger.'

'(fear is) like a bank of low dark clouds that seem to be a solid wall before the sun. Its impenetrable appearance is wholly an illusion. It gives way softly to the mountain tops that rise above it..... It is not strong enough to stop a button's fall, nor hold a feather'

'Teach only love for that is what you are.'
