Linda's Gift - A Care Box

I wrote a letter to Linda this morning and it has really got me thinking, so I
thought I would share it with you.

I have never met Linda. She wrote to me a year or so ago and we very
quickly evolved into friends and confidants. She often states that she
feels that I have given something to her. But as the case is in friendship,
it is very much a two way street and she will probably never comprehend
how much she has given back to me. Of course, I am not speaking about
material things. Nothing material ever compares to warmth, truth/honesty,
compassion, inspiration and generosity of spirit. These things do impress
me – greatly.

Anyway, a few months ago she wrote and said she was making me a
Care Box. I had never heard of such a thing and she explained it was just
a box of little things that reminded her of me or things that she found
pleasing or just a few bits and pieces of things she thought I would like.

I really tried to talk her out of sending it. It wasn’t necessary; she didn’t
need to prove anything to me. I already understood her gratitude and as I
have already stated: it was a two way thing anyway. She certainly didn’t
owe me anything and I really felt uncomfortable about her feeling like she
did.
(Another reminder to me that we must learn to receive with gratitude.
The Universe must hate it when it works through someone else to deliver
what it wants us to have.)

It took her months to put it together and the first thing I noticed was the
high cost of postage on the parcel when it arrived. Again, my first thought
was “Oh she shouldn’t have done this – this is far too much.
(Good one
Sonya! there you go again…I don’t deserve this…I feel indebted…or
even worse “What is she up to? What does she expect back?)
Well, live
and learn. Love, prosperity, thoughtfulness and gratitude come from
infinite sources and in infinite ways.

How often do we need to remind ourselves that lack of anything comes
from our own inability to receive? How often do we say No when things
come to us? How often is lack of gratitude the reason we maintain
lack????

The box is a shoe box. She has lined it and covered the inside and
outside with quotes, affirmations, stick on stars, butterflies, buttons and
little pictures. The contents included note pads, incense, bath salts, body
lotions, perfumes, candles, soaps and heaps of other bits and pieces as
well as a crystal pendant and a number of her favourite songs which she
has compiled on CD’s. It is simply wonderful.

Most of all though, the box contained - Linda. I didn’t want to dismantle it.
I did not want to use anything. I just wanted to keep the box with
everything in it. It sits on my coffee table as an ornamental piece, a
talking point and a reminder to me.

Symbology of:
Someone, somewhere appreciates you
Keep doing what you do and keep being who you are
Be open to receiving and gracious in acceptance
Take time and care with responding to people
Love can be subtle but far reaching
It’s not what’s in the box – it’s the intention behind the box.
Frivolous and luxury items are as important as necessary items
Prosperity in small things is as valid as large things
Generosity is a process not something to be measured or compared or tit
for tatted.
Thank you or I appreciate you is not always translated by verbal
language.

Of course there is much more and I keep finding new messages for
myself when I pass my box each morning. I will include the letter I wrote to
Linda – not because it is a clever or profound letter or anything like that. I
just wanted to share this simple event with you today to remind you again
that it is the simple – heart felt things which we do in the most ordinary
ways that matters much, much more than we may ever realize.

Dear Linda,
My sister came up from the country yesterday and was delighted with
your care box. I have played the CDs but then I put them back in the box.
I love having the box as a centrepiece on a coffee table. She, like you,
insisted that it must be dismantled and used to get the full pleasure of it.

So, bit by bit we went through it and lit incense, rubbed creams on our
skin, smelt stuff and read all the stick ons...She just kept saying over and
over what a remarkable, generous, thoughtful, beautiful person you must
be. (I agree)

I did make her put everything back though. I still maintain I prefer the box
as a composite whole rather than as individual parts. As a total it
maintains its intention and purpose - it is a symbol of love - an act of love.
To me, its not just a box of stuff, it’s the heart behind the action that
impresses and pleases me most. When I pass it each morning on my way
to the kitchen I acknowledge it - I start my day by remembering or
acknowledging what the box represents. So, there you go - if the creams
etc spoil with time I will not care at all.

One of the other beautiful things that the box did:
I adore my sister. Going through the box together was exactly the same
as Christmas morning when we were kids. Being pretty poor, our
Christmas bounty was a collection of small, but to us, extravagant
delights. Things like bath-salts, talcum powder, body lotions etc were gifts
we only ever had as Christmas or birthday presents. As little girls sitting
on our beds on Christmas morning, she would open one and share with
me and then I would open one and share with her. It was so like that
yesterday as she opened the creams, rubbed them on and then said,
"Hey smell this".

She then lit a candle and incense and read out loud all the quotes.

Marvellous! Thank you. I wish you knew how "There" you were. I wish you
knew how much we delighted in having you with us. Like a third sister who
came for just that day.

I'm not going to write anymore now, cause I want you to stay with that
thought. I want you to love and appreciate yourself. I want you to know
how your heart travels and connects and touches and heals when you
are completely unaware of it. I want you to think about how your heart
energy can drift away from you so effortlessly and caress and lift others
with no restriction of time or space.

I wonder how often this happens without anyone ever mentioning it or
knowing about it.

It makes me wonder if when we think of someone in a loving way, does
that thought travel and settle into that person. Does that person simply
experience a moment of pleasure or comfort or strength without
consciously wondering where that feeling came from?
