about gifts and giving

It’s interesting to consider one’s body as a gift.
A gift is born of love and generosity, of exuberance, abundance, life overflowing.

A gift is something to be unwrapped, discovered, appreciated.

In the Japanese tradition a gift is something beyond the personal, never straight from your hands to mine or vice versa.
It is set down at a distance, a neutral place, almost as if didowned, belonging to no one in particular, a present bestowed by Life, by the Source of all that is.

Recognizing that all I claim I own is really a gift.
