All that I give is given to myself.
There are many paradoxical and counterintuitive ideas taught by the Course. Things like you learn what you teach and to give is to receive.

In Alcoholic Anonymous, it is encouraged in the twelfth step, to share what we have learned, to give what we have acquired. We are taught that recovery is a shared endeavor.
In Unitarian Universalists we covenant together to affirm and promote a love for the interdependent web of all existence of which we all are a part. One for all and all for one.
