A Node In A Network

If you think of yourself as a node in a network the more you supply and receive with other nodes the greater your node capacity will be. The magnitude of your node would then be the number of nodes you can supply and receive from, multiplied by the throughput (amount passing through) of those connections.

magnitude = number of nodes * average throughput

Thinking of yourself as a node positions you as a player in a positive-sum game. You are rewarded when you serve and receive from others. You are not rewarded for “holding” the results of your communications. You are not rewarded by receiving and not giving. You are not rewarded by giving and not receiving. At our best, people are conduits, not containers. We are much wealthier if, in one day, we receive 10 dollars and give 10 dollars. Then we are if you just receive ten dollars, or just spend ten dollars.

If we just spend ten dollars but do not receive ten dollars our network is incomplete. We are unsupported, unconnected and unable to reach our potential. If you are here, you’re broke.

If we just receive ten dollars but don’t spend ten dollars our network is again incomplete. We become stagnant, and we feel blocked and purposeless. If you are here, you are without purpose.

Finally, if we receive ten dollars and spend ten dollars our network becomes complete. We feel connected and supported, fulfilled and free. Our flow state increases as our potential become obvious. Our energy as humans is generated when we line up our receivership with our giver-ship. If you are here, you are growing.
