Gifts: Who Gives, Who Receives

laitman_600.04Question: How can a desire to receive bestow?

Answer: It can if it is directed toward others. When a person very much wants to give a gift to another and that person refuses, this distances them from each other. But if someone wants to give me something and I accept it, I bestow pleasure to him in this way.

Exchanges like these happen with us all the time. It is only necessary to understand how to do this correctly, and then it becomes possible to bestow with our characteristics of bestowal.

For example, a bride gives a ring as a gift to a groom. A man generally gives a woman a ring so she will belong to him, but if he is great in her eyes, then it can be the opposite. She can give him a ring as a gift and if he agrees and takes the ring, he gives her pleasure as if he had given her the ring. This is a well-known example from The Book of Zohar.
