But something else had begun to happen, Greg was saying, every-time he gave a pizza away to Wayne and others especially those who could not afford to pay, he felt this awesome feeling of love ...It was also the same sort of feeling he always feels, when he makes his pizzas for his customers, it wasn't making the pizza, it was the reality of creating an experience, by preparing a quality pizza, giving quality ingredients, and not shortchanging people.
it was as if the sense or act of giving, gave him a special sense of significance and he could see that Wayne was experiencing this as well, because Wayne knew that not only was he selling hearts for himself, but Wayne was giving hearts instead of begging and Wayne also knew in his own limited way, that he was helping a young Autistic girl with special needs, who was to receive some of the proceeds.
I shared with Greg, that their is a well known principle, that the moment you are in the act of love, as in service or in giving, then you are blessed instantly inside, your inner value, your inner self worth is raised. I also shared that the giver is more blessed than the receiver. A favorite quote given to me from a very dear friend is ...Never underestimate the opportunity that you give to me, in allowing me to give to you. Greg recognized that opportunity as he was experiencing that inner experience every time he gave the hearts the pizzas, the cans of drinks to Wayne ...he really did feel better having chosen to give to Wayne it was as if Wayne was in his life for a very special lesson on love and giving ...AND TRIALS.
