why supporting others supports you

Today we ask that you support good things.

If you perceive that something helps to create and nourish light in this world, support it.

If you have the resources, it is always good to support good things financially.  This is one of the best uses of money, and you will see this good energy returned to you in myriad ways.  

You may also support good things by giving your time, your knowledge, and — best of all — your love.

When you encounter something good in this world, support it.  Even if it is just “liking it” on Facebook — that, too, is a form of support.

In general, it is good to be a supportive person.

As a parent, it is always good to support your children.  Even if they grow up into people who are very different from you, or from what you’d imagined they’d be — it is always good to support your children.  Support them in any way you can.

Obviously, if someone is engaged in self-destructive or harmful behavior, do not support that behavior.  But support the human being.  Perceive the goodness beneath the harmful behavior, and support that goodness.  

It is good to be a supportive person.

In general, the more you cultivate the quality of supportiveness, the more supported you will feel.

If your faculty of criticism or judgment makes it hard for you to be supportive of others, then it is very probable that you will often have the experience of feeling “unsupported.”

Support begets support.

So — be a supportive person.  Support good things.

And know that, in general, everyone is always doing his best.   Support that.

When you support others, you support yourself.
