create the capacity to receive

We seem to spend an inordinate amount of time trying to get what we want and, even, quite a lot of time trying to figure out what to try to get. However, perhaps we need to shift our focus from "trying to get" to "being ready to receive." Our real work is in making ourselves ready, preparing ourselves to be able to accept our gifts from the Universe. Open. Willing. Ready. (I know at first it is more difficult than it sounds.)
Sometimes I ask myself the question, "What things would I do if I knew, completely knew, that Spirit First will come to be?"...and then I work on those things so that I am ready. This is my work.
Everything comes to us that belongs to us if we create the capacity to receive it.~Rabindranath Tagore

Yes, this is truth - but so difficult for most of us.

Difficult, yes. Impossible, no. It's open vs closed, and it's beautifully expressed here.

Marc ~ It feels as though I have a personal guest in my home to have you visit me here. I suppose in many ways, this site is my home. Thank you for being here.

Yes, it might be difficult for us, but so is learning a language in the beginning. It takes a bit of commitment, and practice, but it gets easier. It's a meditation.

Mermaid, my sister my friend ~ Your presence is always a gift, and you are always present. May we all be ever more open, ever more ready to receive that which the Universe has to give to us.
