Did you know that God (The Universe) has a built in X-Factor? That X-Factor is our human heart. A heart built on free will but based on love. We as a human race are given equal opportunities when we are born.
It is up to us to make the right decisions and to respond to all things for the good of the whole and not the individual.
If you think about it, when we do something good for others or the whole that usually means that it is good for us anyway. But then our greed and our personal emotions get in the way.
Try, each day, to give the gift of a good memory, the gift of compassion, the gift of a smile. Give the gift of you and what you truly are. Think about what you need each day and desire and know that you are not alone. Others around you want the same things if you think about it. Thus, you do get what you give in the end.
