The Magic Of Getting Back Money.
Here I go! Let me tell my short and sweet story, where magic happened to me within 5 minutes after I gave and felt gratitude.
I left my home a bit late, so I was waiting for the bus. There were no signs of the bus coming for at least 30 more minutes according to the Bus App. So decided to go by auto rickshaw. In India, auto rickshaws are very common, they are just like cabs in other countries. Based on the meter, it would cost me 30 INR to get to my destination point. But the driver demanded 50 INR. I had to hurry to the office, so I agreed but obviously I was disappointed because I had to pay an extra 20 INR.
Luckily, I had read a chapter related to financial abundance in The Secret book and how we should be grateful even when we spend money. So suddenly, I changed my thinking pattern. Instead of feeling disappointed for having to pay that extra 20 INR, I started thinking like, ‘Let that 20 INR rupee make a difference for that driver. I don’t know what trouble he is in but regardless, let this money make a good difference for him in his life’. Then I felt and gave so much gratitude to the Universe for letting me spend the money.
Soon he also let another girl join me in the auto as she was going to the same destination as me. After we reached the destination, the driver took 30 INR from the girl and took only 30 INR from me as well! Damn!! Our deal had been for 50 INR, but look at the beauty of the Universe and the beauty of giving gratitude. The driver earned 60 INR, but only charged me 30 INR which was the actual and original charge and I got there on time! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Since then I give gratitude every time I spend money, instead of feeling bad about spending money I feel good!
