“I was struck by one story the book about a man who went to his fireplace and told it, “Give me warmth; then I’ll provide you with wood.” The authors wrote that giving doesn’t work this way—we don’t get first and then give; rather, it’s only by giving that we can be open to receive, and (they go on to say) it’s only by giving unconditionally that the true benefits come. “
