    She’d been fidgeting for some while. Suddenly, she turned and started talking to me.  For two hours we’d sat silently, side-by-side at the airport gate, waiting for our small commuter airplane. Leaning on the narrow metal armrest that divided our hard seats, she looked hesitant yet determined. “Now I need to be brave for my father. I’m not sure I know how.  I’ve always leaned on him for help, you see,” she nodded briefly at the man across from us. “We haven’t been on a plane since we flew here from Bogota last November.  My professor advised us to leave…

    Do you want what wants?

    You accept what wants to come through you without the judgment, self-shaming and fear that sent these parts of yourself so deeply underground in the first place.

    We create the world we live in by the stories we choose to tell about it

    The best stories, the ones that last, contain nutritional value that teaches us how to do this; how to grow into heroes willing to sacrifice themselves for the people they love and the ideals they believe in.

    Art of Storytelling: Story is the stuff you put around the facts in order to connect them and give them meaning

    Maybe you’re familiar with the idea of kintsukuroi. It’s a Japanese word that refers to the art of repairing broken pottery by filling in the cracks with gold.[…]

    Non-Transactional Reciprocity 


    Warning: preg_match_all(): Compilation failed: invalid range in character class at offset 7 in /homepages/23/d339537987/htdocs/pb/wp-content/themes/p2/inc/mentions.php on line 77

    What in the world is that? I dunno. I guess I am figuring that out. It came out of my mouth, so I better figure it out!

    What most people think of as the economy is a transactional world where exchanges are made between people that clear obligation to each other. I buy milk at the store for a few bucks. I give them money, they give me milk, basically end of the story.

    There is another economy – the gift economy. I am out of milk, I borrow some from the neighbor. I do not insult her by giving her a few bucks for it. Instead I bring her cookies. I reciprocated but it wasn’t transactional – in a tit for tit kind of way.

    #cocreate14 discussion

    We were talking, at #cocreate14, about the qualities of being co-creative. And that is when this phrase, non-transactional reciprocity came out of my mouth.

    The old forms of international development/philanthropy worked in something like the following storyline for those providing what they thought of as “help” to others who needed to be helped. “I have something. I am sad that you don’t have this thing. So I am going to help you by teaching you how to have the thing that I have.”

    When we come from a place of being co-creative, the story goes much more like: “I have value to offer and I recognize that you have value. Let’s share our value with each other over time and see if we can make things better in ways we both believe actually are better for us.” There is reciprocity here, where there wasn’t in the old international development/philanthropy model. But it is not transactional – as in we do not measure our gifts for each other as equal in a way that we feel the encounter is completed.

    Maybe there is a better word for it, but this is the phrase that came to mind at #cocreate14. We did not talk there about how it relates to the gift economy, but I would love to hear your thoughts on how they may relate to each other.
