"The effects of interpersonal nongreed are beautiful. In even the momentary absence of pulling and holding, relationships are steeped in generosity not only between two people but also within families and in communities. Jealousy and envy do not arise in the mind of nongreed, nor do manipulative behavior. People give to each other freedom to be who they are, unconstrained by selfish desires. As moments of nongreed become more common, ease and generosity become the norm" (Gregory Cramer).

I love when I stumble over something so eloquently written that I have been pondering about for a while. It often happens unexpectedly. Of course, generosity and nongreed is in an intricate mutual relationship. I just hadn't thought about it this way. 

Feeling gratitude for the many great teachers that I have been fortunate to learn about and from.
