Everything has value in this world. And though we each have our own desires in life, we must all take note of the theory of equivalent exchange. Simply put, it states that to achieve a particular something, one must give up something of equivalent value. One must sacrifice present happiness in order to gain happiness in the future. It is the way of the world.

 

Thus, in accordance with the theory of equivalent exchange, take note of the following:

· If you wish for your hardship and suffering to come to an end, then you must put an end to the hardship and suffering you cause other people.

· If you wish to receive something, a gift or blessing perhaps, then you must give and share generously and wholeheartedly.

· If you wish to be treated kindly, be respected and honored for who you are as a person, then you must also treat other kindly, respect them and honor them for who they really are.

· If you wish to have a happy and fruitful future, then you first must have patience and determination in the present.

· If you wish to someday reach the top, then you must first experience what it means to be in the bottom so as to keep things in balance.

 

It is the way of the world. In order to achieve something, you must first give up something of equivalent value. Live accordingly, knowing that each and every one of your actions would someday bear fruit.

Keep into mind that all the efforts we’ve made will indeed prove their worth. And even if the theory of equivalent exchange occurs in our world, remember that we have a Father in Heaven, who gives us guidance and strength without ever expecting anything, neither of equivalent nor greater nor lesser value, in return. Trust in Him and surely, your life will be filled with nothing but true happiness.
