Living In The Gift is a dynamic Life Choice, for sure! It’s a Way of stepping out of dead rhythms and meaningless ritual, and into The Genuine Magic of All Things Inter-Being. The Very Dynamic Nature of Living As Gift, Working With Gift Economy, and Generally Rejecting conventional atrophying patterns, Allows us to both Perceive and Create in Ways that ‘normal’ ‘life’ can never do.
I’ve been thinking more and more about how to succinctly define Living In Gift for those who feel called to move out of the mainstream and into The Freedom of Gift.
Living in Gift is much alike Natural Law: you can make some bullet points and statements about the general pillars BUT Every Sovereign Being MUST learn through their Own Experience, Culture, Micro-Climate and Unique Windows of Perception (i.e. their Inimitable Sentience of Mind-Body-Spirit) – I Can Share With You My Experience and it May Inspire You to Further Delve Into Your Own, but I absolutely cannot dictate, control or manipulate your experience into being something that it is not (or not yet).
We All Have to Do The Good Work! We All Have to Gift Blood, Sweat and Tears to This Sacred Earth that is Gifting Us Life. And We All Have to Understand Through Our Own, Unrepeatable Life, Our Own Utterly-Perfectly-Imperfect Way, Through Our Very Own Language and Feeling and Embodied Knowing.
This is what I Feel About Living In Gift… It is Lived, Felt, Experienced Knowing, Shared Here Through My Spontaneous Living Expression-Of-Truth, Gifted To You Freely, Whilst Equally Being Open To Be Nourished From Whatever Source Might Most Effortlessly and Lovinggly Provide for Me in Symbiosis:
- Gift is a Deeper Knowing, Appreciation and Practise of Our Life Being A Verifiable Blessing
- Living In The Gift is an Active, Activated Awareness of Giving and Receiving
- LITG is a Rooted Belief – an Embodied Consciousness – around our Sacred Nature, the Sacred Nature of Everything Around Us, and Our Co-Creative Relationship with All Of This
The Nature of Gift As I Experience it, is generally to:
- Give Before Asking
- Ask For What We Need, but no more
- Never Use Force or Insistence, manipulation or coercion in Asking
- Release Attachment to the Gift
- Release the Gifter into the Freedom To Work within Their Own Unique Symbiosis
- Be Absolutely Clear on What We Want and Need – Having Resolved Inner ills
- Develop and Evolve an Appropriate Language, Ethics and Humility in Asking
- Be at Peace with All Things Having Their Right, Natural Season for Unfolding
- Listen to Nature, and be led by Gaia-Sophia, or ‘that-which-is-more-than-the-sum-of-the-parts’
- Recognise the Difference between Right and ‘wrong’, ‘personal’ and Collective, ‘ego’ and Whole
- Seek Always to Act For The Good Of All, Rather than the temporary pleasure of ego
- Seek Growth and Expansion Always, and the Release of All Blocks in Energy, Thinking, Movement, Circulation
