Living in The Gift.
What does it mean to live in The Gift? Since 2011, I have been sharing my work (play) in the spirit of the ‘gift economy’. This means I’ve rarely added fixed price tags or pay walls to my events, retreats, video content, podcasts and 1-1 sessions. I never want to turn anyone away and trust and rely on heart-to-heart financial support. I have no hidden sponsors, savings or use advertising on my sites.
Unlike today’s market system, whose built-in scarcity compels competition in which more for me is less for you, in a gift economy the opposite holds true. Because those in a gift culture pass on their surplus rather than accumulating it, your good fortune is my good fortune: more for you is more for me. We don’t break the giving chain. The ‘gift’ empowers us to claim back awareness of our gifts and talents and invites you, the experiencer, to value what you experience and give from a place of heartfelt trust. It moves us out of a culture of what can I get, to what can I give. It allows us to move from consumption to participation.
Your recurring or onetime gift (using the form below or crypto addresses) is greatly received. The money I receive enables me to cover basic costs of living, running websites, creating content, hosting podcasts and the weekly LIVE (LOVE) stream supporting listeners in need and running an online community.
Your money truly makes a difference because it helps me to help others and encourages me to continue my dhamma; devoting my life to service, supporting unique divine beings like you to love yourself fearlessly, to realise you are not broken in any way, that you are love, the race is over; you are already it. We are divine and it’s time to come alive, shine and co-create the more beautiful world our hearts know is possible.
If you feel inspired and motivated by what I’m sharing, you can also benefit and help spread the LOVE forward by joining in and sharing the content I create with friends, such as; The Simon Transparently Podcast, buying my books Self Love Now or Burglar to Buddha. You can join the LOVE stream on Telegram, The Be Love Tribe online community, or dive into my online training, Go Touch Yourself – Return to Ecstasy.
You can learn more about my journey with the gift and how it began in my recent book “Burglar To Buddha”. By investing in this book, you are supporting me to gift back £3500 to Michelle, my editor/publisher, who gifted her skills and talents to get it completed. Selling 2000 copies is required to reach that target. At present (March 2022) we have sold 100 copies. We have no distribution/marketing budget. Maybe that’s your Talent?
In grateful receivership,
