I recently wrote my first post on os.me platform (https://os.me/short-stories/the-eternal-giver-and-my-pledge/) and received tonnes of love and appreciation from the members. Positive comments came in from all parts of the world, leaving me warm and content that my message resonated with everyone.
To my sheer surprise and quite paradoxically, people even supported me monetarily despite my pledge of giving back the earnings to Sri Badrika Ashram (omswami.org) and our very own Black Lotus App (blacklotus.app). Within a day, I received over $55, those lovely and generous people could have donated directly to Ashram or Black Lotus. However, they still showered their love on me – baffles me what purity of intention can achieve.
As pledged, I will withdraw the amount and send all the earnings back to the Ashram. A BIG THANK YOU for all the kind words, member pledges and generosity.
