Sacred Giving, Sacred Receiving: The American Indian Giveaway

The latest (Summer 2011) issue of Parabola is dear to your Holy Beggar's heart because it addresses the essential activity (not just human!) of giving and receiving. Joseph Bruchac's article, titled above, is all about the natural proclivity to maintain relationship through exchange. Exchange is one of the key Kabbalistic modes of interaction. More about this later.

And remember,
No Matter What
Don't Forget to Ask for the Money!

  1. Well, here is the "more". This reminds me of the Tibetan Book of the Dead where one offers one's entirety to be "recycled" by those entities that thrive on that which we discard, only to promote life in, at minimum, its most simple form. Composting. I hate living in the city where every portal to the earth has been paved over, sealed up (in the case of smog) and imported (in the case of our water). HELP!
