Reciprocity, the notion of a gift for a gift, is one of the cornerstones of our worldview. Living close to one another makes living this way much easier than if we are spread across a continent. A friend of mine recently helped me fix the brakes on my truck (something I did not know how to do), and I chopped up a bunch of wood for him (something he cannot do on account of a recent injury). No need to make a big production of it, just Folk helping one another out, as it should be.

  1. as you mentioned; simple yet important. the other peoples regularly help, share, and give gifts. we have been taught for so long to love and look out for our own is wrong and evil.
