Yellow Brick Road

Receiving vessel knows only how
to be open to receive. It does so
with a moment of pleasure, followed
by a longing for more. Nothing can
fill this vessel for it is made to
receive, thus its nature is to always need more.

Then one day, it observed a bestowing
vessel happily pouring bounty everywhere.
“Are you happy?” the receiver asked, “or
would you sometimes like to receive?”
The bestower looked startled, “Why, it’s
true that I sometimes wonder what it is like
to receive. But how can one change one’s
nature?” The receiver nods, “I, too, wonder
what it would be like to bestow.”

Thus they decided to walk the yellow brick road
to find the answer.

    self awareness
    self management
    self actualization

    the great bard cautions us to not be a borrower nor a lender be
    but life teaches it is best as a receiver and a giver be

    nurture and be nurtured
    that is our truest nature
    conditional on particular human condition

    given all the givens
