Are We Practicing Reciprocity With Others?

The thoughts and comments from the ‘tapping aliveness’ topic were touching and well appreciated by us.  Down the same corridor of thought, please don’t hesitate to give us your outlook and viewpoints on the topic of reciprocity. 

Reciprocity is the act of creating, maintaining, or augmenting social relationships as well as satisfying the material needs of someone who may have necessities beyond their current means.  There are the elevated charitable works of individuals or companies that donate to larger networks of human need.  These are deeds of generalized reciprocity.  Those wanting to contribute to solving homelessness, defeating hunger, even the act of giving blood for the nations’ hospitals.  Sadly, there is the demonstration of negative reciprocity.  Gang members repeatedly practice this behavior in retaliatory acts as a non-cooperative faction.  If a certain member of the group decides to leave and join another band, however geographically distant, the original gang will travel there to inflict reprisal on that individual. 

In your community or workplace, are you seeing acts of negative reciprocity?  How many ways can you demonstrate appreciation of others in your professional department or division with spontaneous deeds of reciprocity?   Could emotional issues in the family or workplace be defused by a sudden act of kindness by you?   And, does it have to be something associated with money or some task they can never seem to get to?

Anxious to hear your views!

    I have seen reciprocity positively exchanged for years with friends, who are also business associates; it produces stronger, more intertwined and complex connections than those relationships where it is lacking. Conversely, I have also seen the damage created by a lack of reciprocity or even mere neglect. I believe we can use this principal to improve both our professional and personal lives. The reciprocity which is extended does not have to be monetarily based, it can be completely dependent on what help and support you are able to provide to enhance your relationships with others.
