Being Generous involves someone giving and someone receiving, but the experience of the recipient might not be as positive as the giver might assume. Similarly, for the giver, the experience might have a negative side. Or it could be very positive on both sides of the equation. It depends, right? Our theory is that being generous is your participation in making the world a better place. But we are not going to assume that is the case. Why be generous?
We know that giving creates a positive ripple effect of more giving, so we rarely give with no expectation of anything in return. We fully expect our giving to create positive outcomes that indirectly will benefit us, albeit not in a transactional sense. We know there is energy in the act of giving, and there is an energetic reciprocity. The issue is not the expectation of anything in return, it is more the asking for something in return. Altruistic generosity means you are not asking for anything in return.
