4G living

Gifts create connection and possibility, but not all gifts have monetary value. In fact, some of the most important gifts involve time, effort and care instead.*
(Seth Godin)

Gratitude, gladness, gifts, generosity.

Zing is the word I enjoy using to describe each person’s unique energy connecting them with the infinite game that life is meant to be; these 4 Gs help us get there:

Gratitude for what we have and all that is around us:

Ideas do not belong to people. Ideas live in the world as we do. We discover certain ideas at certain times.**

Gladness that comes from a deep integration of these.

Every morning I is going out and snitching new dreams to put in my bottles.^

Gifts being the things that emerge from the depths of gratitude and gladness in our lives, with the ultimate gift being ourselves:

“If you is really wanting to know what I am doing in your village,” the BFG said, “I is loosing a dream into the bedroom of those children. […] I is a dream-blowing giant”^

Here is generosity, the life that cannot help but give.

Go play.
