Don’t Whisper

Yearning for the past!
It shall not return
The past is bygone
We are here to live day by day
Can not live for yesterday
Don’t count what you have done
Think of what you can give for today
Never wait for payback
As you give, let it be forgotten
Even don’t whisper it to you heart

The most important rule about giving. Keep your good deeds to yourself. Don't announce to the whole world that you've donated $100,000 to your favorite charity or that you've helped save a child from a life-threatening disease.

If you really desire to give, do it secretly and in private. Some people would write "anonymous" rather than their own names when they've made a contribution. The universe smiles upon these individuals, and they will get their just rewards in due time.

I totally agree with you. Your left hand should not know what your right hand had given. The way it is done these days specially in those donation programs on TV, some of the people just want to hear their names and that they gave this amount of money!

I agree with this--giving without expectation of approval and acknowledgement is true charity !
