On a spiritual level, the universe is a giant cosmic bank where we make withdrawals and deposits on a daily basis.
Our withdrawals include health, security, love, the breath that we take, even the fact that we can open our eyes in the morning!
We make deposits in the bank when we volunteer, help others, or do small kindnesses like saying hello to someone we don’t necessarily know well or even care about. Every day that we do actions of sharing beyond our comfort zone, or extend ourselves as a good friend, or pray not only for ourselves but for others as well, we are making a deposit into our cosmic bank account.
The cosmic bank is open 24/7, and our thoughts, words, and actions are constantly adding to or subtracting from our account. But we have to keep making deposits; we can’t rely on some good deed we did three years ago, hoping it will tide us over. Just as we need to eat every day, we need to share every day, too.
Today, take a moment to check the status of your account. Are you taking time every day to make a deposit?
