Reflections From Lineke & Simon After Completing The 'Living In The Gift Course By Charles Eisenstein. Personal And Collective Transition From An Age Of Scarcity And Separation, To An Age Of Abundance, Community, And Gift.
We hope you can benefit from this reflective and inspiring conversation as we both share our keynotes and what landed within our hearts. I have been practicing and experimenting with the Gift Economy since 2011. This mode of exchange is not just about our relationship to money, it's a call into the trust of life itself. I often remark how walking this path has been the ultimate test of trust. Working my trust muscles in every way. The Gift is not some new age mode of exchange, it's actually ancient and for us is the very natural way to exchange our gifts. We are the gift and life itself is giving to us constantly. When we reframe and shift our perspective into the eternal giving chain, then there is enough for everyone's need but not for everyone's greed. The more we give, the more we have to give. What we appreciate, appreciates. We literally enter into the realm of magic, the abundant realm prosperity. We begin to receive from absolutely everywhere, because that is the simple truth of the matter. All is sacred and all is for us. This mode of exchange creates a deeper intimacy and trust in life. It creates community and supports us into a new money story beyond fear based often difficult to value transactions formed from lack and scarcity mentality, into the ever flowing current-sea of wealth and prosperity. This is not to say anything bad about money, money is a neutral energy and a beautiful form to gift with. We both love money and how it can be used to create in this current society AND it is not the definitive way to exchange. When we value each other's skills, talents, resources, and existence itself as unique gifts, we are invited into greater value exchange beyond the number price tags that our current commerce system uses as our way to measure value. I find this to be extremely limiting and often creates exclusivity, whereas LOVE has no price tag and is fully inclusive. You can enjoy ‘Living In The Gift’ course from Charles on his website. it is offered as a gift, (of course) so you decide the value you want to give, what feels warm in your heart.
Living In The Gift All of my podcasts are given in the spirit of the Gift Economy. This means you get to receive the value this offers you and then feel into your heart and decide what contribution you can gift from your heart to mine. I trust in the circulation of the unconditional giving chain of reciprocity and live by the motto: The more that I give, the more I have to give.
