An Attitude of Gratitude and the Gift Economy

It’s the gift that keeps on giving and giving; it keeps even Santa inspired.
I speak of a force in all things living; an impulse that we all have acquired!
For when a gift meets our heart’s deepest desire, gratitude arises - no need to conspire;
A multiplier, an amplifier and intensifier; The giving comes full circle – truly, a beautifier.

We are creative beings that long to have life flow through us. When we open ourselves to receive fully and allow ourselves to give freely, we begin to explore the gift economy and the currency of gratitude. It’s about how more for you is more for me. It’s a perspective shift that creates opportunity and unearths the gifts in all experiences. It’s a switch from struggle to ease and scarcity to abundance. It’s quite simply sharing – giving what you have and don’t need to someone who needs it and doesn’t have it.

Could the solutions to our problems be that simple? Come and let’s find out what emerges when we play together in gratefulness!
