Excerpts from the book ‘Ask and It’s Given’ By Esther and Jerry Hicks.

Your Greatest Gift to  

Give Is Your Happiness  

The greatest gift that you could ever give to another is your own happiness, for when you are in a state of joy, happiness, or appreciation, you are fully connected to the stream of pure, positive Source energy that is truly who you are. And when you are in that state of connection, anything or anyone that you are holding as your object of attention benefits from your attention. 

No one else needs you to be or do things for them in order for them to be fulfilled- for all of them have the same access to the stream of well-being that you do often others who do. Often, others (who do not understand that they have access to the stream) suffer in their inability to go themselves in a place of feeling good, and ask you to behave in a way that they believe will make them feel better. But not only do they hold you in a place of discomfort as a try to make you responsible for their joy, they hold themselves in a place of bondage as well. For they cannot control the way other behaves, and if that control is necessary for their happiness then they actually are in trouble. 

Your happiness does not  

Depend on what others do  

Your happiness does not depend on what others do, but only of upon your own vibrational balance. And the happiness of others does not depend on you, but original for the way anyone feels in any moment is only about their own mix of energies. The way you feel is simply, clearly, and always the indicator on the vibrational balance between your desires and your vibrational offering, which, from your Vantage Point, you have launched.
