My Experience Investing In Others
Our greatest good as humans is that which we do for others without expecting anything in return. This we can do daily within our individual capacity. I grew up with my grandma and one thing I learned from her is that giving is never too small or too big as long as one does it sincerely from his heart. The task for this week's dreemport challenge is to invest in people we had selected hoping to be part in our team while striving to accomplish our goals and what I did was to send them each 100 dreem token and I boosted a post for one user who had a recent post, the others last posted 3-4 days ago and it was impossible to boost theirs. I sent the dreem token to each of them with a message to stay true to their dreams and strive earnestly in achieving that dream.
My Experience Within the week
There's something I noticed about giving or investing in someone. This inner joy from the knowledge that I was able to give. Remembering the joy the disciples felt after they came back with a testimony of how they were able to heal the sick and cast our demons, it could have been a joy that they were able to render service to humanity. It comes with a peace that you were part of one's success and was able to help in the smallest way possible. At first one considers what he's losing but in the end one is fulfilled that he was able to give, not because they are in need but because you love them and desire them to succeed.
I didn't expect anything in return but I got love in return, first from one of the users whom I had shown love to and then from someone different whom I did nothing for. It may not be the equivalent of that which I did but it made me realize there are many means love can return to us. It's just like the principle of give and it shall be given to us, no one can tell how, but somehow, someday, and somewhere it always finds a way to come to us. So at the end we realize it was never a loss but it was a way of investing in ourselves through others. Therefore, I concluded after this week's experience that in showing love to others, we do unto ourselves.
