    The Sun Shines On Everyone, it makes no choices.  As it shines naturally, it ends up giving to so many people.  Giving is like that, you just give without differentiation and without thinking that you are giving or expecting.  Love this from the Talk on Gita by Vinoba Bhave: 

    "The sun gives call to no one; yet, when it rises, birds soar in the sky, lambs begin to prance around, cows head for gazing, shopkeepers open their shops, farmers start out towards their farms. The whole world is on the move as it makes its appearance on the horizon. The sun's mere existence is enough; that gives rise to innumerable activities." - Vinoba Bhave
