If you want to learn how to give, it can be helpful to first learn how to receive. In receiving deeply other’s gifts, we open ourselves to life and its joyful sense field. In receiving with all senses, a sensation, a feeling, the abundance of a tree or another person in their fullness, we open to life’s unlimited earth based dreaming, its orgasmic potency. In receiving another’s support and help we open to community. The dance of receiving can be distinguished from taking by the openness, untensing and receptivity that accompanies it. In a sense receiving is already giving, by opening and receiving fully and completely, we are in away already giving back. Equally when we are giving, its likely we are also at the same time, always already deeply receiving from those we give to.
