3 Best Gifts

Three best gifts a human being may give to another are:

1. Gift of material resources (physical – the R wave)

Without basic material resources to support life no human being can ever hope do something worthwhile to develop himself/herself. No music would be created. No poems would be written. No paintings would be made. No inventions would come about. No talent would blossom. It is about providing long term sustenance since honing of any talent needs years of persistent practice in good health.

2. Gift of Knowledge (mental – G wave)

Gifting knowledge to someone helps a person to navigate through complexity of life so as not to get swamped by it. It is an invaluable gift. Without basic knowledge and skill to navigate in complexity, even the best amongst us, would soon lose their way, get distracted, depressed and be left in a state of utter despair. It provides the wherewithal to stay the tough course of life by understanding oneself and others. In other words, it provides the wisdom to live life without much of mental sufferings and afflictions.

3. Gift of Assurance (emotional – B wave)

With this gift one gets the much needed confidence to do better in what one does well. This gift helps one to develop a sense of belonging, a state of peace, happiness and equanimity enabling one to reach one’s highest potential. In that way, the world automatically become a better place to live. Mere presence, an approving nod, a kind word, a smile, sharing love, showing respect, sharing the good word are some of the subtle but powerful forms of this gift. It unleashes the most powerful transforming force in an individual and society at large.
