The approach of Charles Eisenstein
Charles Eisenstein is my biggest inspiration on choosing this path. I could never find peace neither in stablishing values for my services, or to make them for free or donation. He offers an online course, brilliant, that cultivates and explores a new mindset to hold this new approach to abundance. You can find more on the links aside.
According to him, on the course:
"The path of gift is a path of trust. I trust in you the same yearning that I know in myself. When I am moved, when I’m inspired when I am enriched by something, I feel grateful for it and I WANT to give back. It depends on the situation, sometimes I may want to give forward. I may not be inspired to give a return gift to the person who gave it to me. Maybe our status in life don’t make a return gift appropriate and it is obvious that I am meant to pass this onward to somebody else, so that can happen too. The return gift, the appropriate gift may not be toward the giver. Another reason I like to operate by gift is that I want to send a message of trust into the world.
It supports me, my family, my life, my work, all the people who work with me to bring this forth but ultimately I am not doing it for the money. If I set a price and put the information behind a paywall, that would be I am putting the money before the message. If I make it available by gift and invite a voluntary payment, I am putting the message before the money. And I hope people can feel my sincerity in this, I hope they can feel my genuine nonjudgement if they choose zero. This is really important to me. I want to provide a respite from the world of someone always trying to make money off of us. I want to offer a data point that contributes to a different story, a story that people are generous and it is OK to live that way, to live in generosity."
