The gift is a container for love and appreciation. Imbue it with yours, and it will be made richer and more valuable by it.
Within a year and a day, pass the gift on to somebody you find along your way who would benefit from receiving it. Do so with the understanding that they will, within a year and a day, pass it on to somebody who would benefit from receiving it. In this way, the gift is kept in motion; in the meantime, enjoy it.
Move the gift in a wide circle; nothing must ever be received in direct exchange for it. Give it in the understanding that if you find yourself in need, a gift will find you.
