"God, who encompasses all being, nevertheless created beings who have everything individually but who want to share it to increase their joy. Nothing that is real can be increased except by sharing. That’s why God Himself created you. Divine abstraction takes joy in application, and that is what creation means. ‘How,’ ‘what,’ and ‘to whom’ are irrelevant because real creation gives everything since it can create only like itself." -A Course in Miracles (Original Version)
As created in the image and likeness of God, individually we have everything, and the only way for us to experience the joy of knowing that we have it all is by sharing it. But the sharing has been distorted by this notion of giving and receiving because it suggests that there is a giver and that there is a receiver. But how can there be a giver and a receiver in oneness? It is not possible.
However, in choosing to see the world through the ego’s perception, I have convinced myself that I am a separate unit, alone and helpless, who’s existence is dependent on what I can get from the world and from what I can accumulated. That keeps me rooted in fear for all I am experiencing is my distorted idea of separation from my Source.
In oneness however, I recognize that all that I have is extended freely to everything and everyone for in reality, the only one I am giving to is myself. So nothing is lost or given away, it is simply God experiencing the joy of extending His love back to Himself. That’s why it is said that what I give to others I give to myself, and what I fail to give to others I fail to give to myself, because we are all One!
