I’ve been thinking about the exchange of energy that takes place during an act of giving and receiving.In short, I think the giver and the receiver are doing pretty much the same thing. The receiver “gives” something by accepting the gift, and the giver “receives” something by providing the gift. It’s an immediate cycle in which both parties take on a level of giving/receiving responsibility.
Think about it. You can’t give something unless someone is willing to receive it, thus giving you the gift of accepting your gift.
Sometimes a great gift you can give someone is to receive what they want to give you.
