I envision a community where all its members are held essential and their gifts, valued. Like a structure whose center is everywhere, this vision’s core is the practice of reciprocity.

Reciprocity means acknowledging the gifts those around us are giving by showing our gratitude in equal. Whether with money, barter, support or time, we recognize that which we have received with tangible thanks.

Money is materialised gratitude, so until it, (or an equal form of thanks) is given, receiving is not complete.

Money isn’t meant to be stopped-up and saved, but kept moving towards those things we value, so they may gain in strength and influence.

Simultaneously, we must recognize our own gifts by giving them only where they are fully received, showing others the power of their gratitude.
