When you focus on being a blessing, God makes sure that you are always blessed in abundance.
To live a pure unselfish life, one must count nothing as one's own in the midst of abundance.
Charity bestowed upon those who are worthy of it is like good seed sown on a good soil that yields an abundance of fruits. But alms given to those who are yet under the tyrannical yoke of the passions are like seed deposited in a bad soil. The passions of the receiver of the alms choke, as it were, the growth of merits.
