This means that if my nature is a desire to receive for my own sake, I will be able to receive only with the intention of in order to bestow unto others. If I don’t have this intention, I will not receive anything.
I can, therefore, maximize my resemblance to the Creator according to my intention to bestow unto others. If I don’t have this intention, it means that I don’t do anything.
