Giving and receiving have a certain requirement of patterned expectation and anticipation which may not involve agreement between the parties involved. They are merely individual actions which do not require mutual exchange to take place. If I give you something you do not want – I am still ‘giving’ but it is only serving a purpose for me. If you are ‘receiving’ something from someone, that parking ticket is not exactly a welcome gift. One can take place without the other occurring and can prove unwelcome, intrusive or interfering.
However, ‘offering’ requires reciprocation – it requires the act of ‘accepting’ to complete the action. It requires co-operation, consideration and provides choice between the parties involved.
We are gradually moving towards the realisation of energy exchange through communication and service to others such as healing, which involves the processes of ‘offering’ and ‘accepting’. We can choose whether we wish to listen or accept what is being offered and we can do so without retribution or guilt or shame. The act of offering should be done so with love and the act of accepting should be done so with love.
This is our future and creates a world of choice through unconditional exchanges of love between all.
