The future is dynamic, active, interconnected. For some reason many of us would rather know the future than create it.*
The world is alive, generous,
and waiting patiently for us
to figure it out.**
(Tom De Blasis)
Gifts help us to create the future; they create disequilibrium and wait to see what effects they may have caused.
Everything we are can be used in this direction:
We are only as much as what we can give to others.^
It turns out that when we give ourselves some space and engage our imagination we’re a lot.
It is quite possible that more happens when a gift is not commoditised, when it is able to stay free to not only be the gift, to also contain the spirit of the gift and the community of the gift.
Bring on the future.
