Human minds are designed in such a way that consciously we want things to come to us, but subconsciously we all have a charitable corner which keeps hidden by clutter in our mind. It is time to remove the clutter. Your clutter could be someone’s need. Your old pair of shoes, shirt, pants, coat etc. are some of the items which you can give out to those who are in need. You just have to dump them in a box and drop it off at the nearest GOODWILL center. You will get a lot of satisfaction by doing this. When we give, we get a sense of contribution to society. Contribution connects you to the outer world. So you achieve two goals, Inner satisfaction and connection to the society.
