     The spirit of a gift is that it is a gift, not earned or deserved.  As I see it, the process of the spirit of a gift starts with being true to myself, listening to my inner truth (which is a gift to me), allowing it, accepting it, and sharing it (which is a gift to others).  It's a process of letting the truth in me sound through me, without agenda -- at times that is dangerous and takes courage, and there are times I have done it and it has been very satisfying, such that my heart swells.  I assume we develop our heart to be pure so gifting becomes effortless by having less and less ego and by practicing giving sincerely the gift of our own truth.
