One of the laws of the universe is ask and you shall receive.
You’ve heard of this, yes?
Yet how often do we truly ask?
And if we do ask for something, how often do we feel guilty or shameful or undeserving?
In this TED Talk on “The Art of Asking”, Amanda Palmer talks about connecting with people through the very act of asking. And the power of asking from a space of raw vulnerability.
When we ask of the universe and of others, there is a softness and beauty of the simultaneity of gifting and receiving that can occur. It’s not about being deserving and having to do something to earn it. What if it’s as simple as truly being us and just asking?
As Amanda says, what if we could “face each other and give and receive fearlessly?”
