A Poem: Mother Lakshmi's Poem 

If you would give as I do,
give from the place where nothing can be taken away from you—
give from the place of the spirit.
See everything as formed from that inexhaustible spirit
for the moment that it’s given, lasting as long as its purpose is.
Have faith that nothing is taken away from you
that has not outlived its purpose.
Relinquish the idea that you have anything to do with it
and in that way your clinging and self-doubt will fall away.
