The more information we receive,

the more awareness we have.

The more awareness we have,

the more conscious we are.

The more conscious we are,

the deeper our understanding.

The deeper our understanding,

the clearer our intent.

The clearer our intent,

the stronger our center.

The stronger our center,

the brighter our light.

The brighter our light,

the purer our energy output.

The purer our energy output,

the more positive the impact we create on those around us, just by being who we are.

And that's how we can best give in the times ahead...

...And that's how we can give without losing.
