When you give, you don't think that you're giving because he said you should not make distinction between yourself and other self, like between me and the chocolate over there, the choco brother over there. You see, because when you give with the objective thinking in the mind that, "Okay, I'm giving him something," then it's not a complete giving. It's not a Sila Paramita. Sila Paramita means you give, but as if you give it to yourself. Like you drink water when you're thirsty, you eat when you're hungry. It is no big deal when you're giving yourself something to eat.
