random thoughts

1. sometimes we give to each, expecting to get something in return
2. sometimes we give to each, hoping to receive anything (no matter how minute) in return (probably a sign of respect, a thank you)
3. sometimes we give to each other because we owe a debt which can never be repaid and even if we did try to repay it, it would refused. sometimes this is what people call "pay it forward".

its important to teach these principles and teach when to use these principles. Hopefully option 2 increases with age while option 1 decreases. option 3 needs some help. I see it sporadically. I felt like I did option 3 by teaching ... i hope to get back to that soon.
