Leaving a gift for a stranger is a lot like geocaching in some ways; you don’t know who left it or where it came from, or even why they chose to leave that item. All you know is that you happen to find it. What importance did this item have for the person?
Geocaching is a real life treasure hunt. You collect coordinates from geocaching.com and use a map or GPS to locate a capsule. Inside this capsule is items that people from your community or sometimes across the globe have placed inside this box for you to find.
If I were to leave a gift for a stranger, I would want it to reflect wonder, mystery, happiness, as well as part of my personality; a gift that is useful. I might leave a book called “The Gift of Fear.” There is a lot of crime in this world and a lot of people don’t know what to do when it happens to them.
This book gives real examples of how to rely on your intuition to relieve yourself from a sticky situation. With this gift, I’d leave a note that might say something like, “The only person who can truly protect you is you. May you find solice and strength within these pages and within yourself. Let this book be your guide to protection.” It has truly helped me in more ways than I can count. Sharing that information with someone who may desperately need it is the best gift you can give.
