What Does the Feng Shui Principle of Giving and Receiving Mean?

This principle could be interpreted in a very 'poetic' metaphysical way or on very practical terms. Choosing to become a helpful person by sharing with others in your community. 

During my visit with Feng Shui Los Angeles California clients, I came across a neighbor who built this amazing little box that held used and some new books. 

Reading the label, it said 'Little Free Library.' After researching what this meant, I found there are Little Free Library stands all over the United States! The goals of this organizing is to help increase book access and forging community connections by helping people around the globe start and maintain Little Free Library book exchanges. Brilliant! Take a book and leave a book, giving and receiving. 

To learn how more about this global community project and how you could also start your mini Free library click LittleFreeLibrary.org.

The little free liberty is a great idea for sharing.

Well isn't that a great idea!  You'll find this same concept at every rental condo on Maui, where people will leave their books for others to read.

I know Apple will never allow this but I would love to gift my downloads to people who can't afford it.
