I’ve been thinking about this a lot…another beautiful quote from Richard Rohr.
I wish I could remember which meditation it was part of so I could refer you to the whole thought, but I wanted to share at least this.
I love the thought of “receiving.”
It is a gift to learn to become a “receiver.”
It means we are looking to open our hearts and receive the goodness being given.
Reminds me of this painting of Jesus I have talked with my kids a lot about over the years:
He is there, knocking.
But as you’ll notice, there’s no doorknob.
We need to consciously open and receive Him.
Just like anything else in life, if we want the Spirit to become a living Presence within us, we must learn to recognize and seek it.
And be still enough to let it in.
I am on the constant search to be aware enough to notice and let in that Light that is available to all.
