Many of us are raised in the belief that to give is more important than to receive. It took me the longest time to realize that like the inhale and exhale one was not better than the other.
In fact without being able to fully receive there would be no place for giving at all. An inhale must be partnered with an exhale for life to continue.
Just the other day I was given a gift of money that was unexpected. Though it took me by surprise I was able to open my heart and receive this gift with deep gratitude.
The person that gave this gift to me was able to tell me that she had gone through a inner process before deciding to gift me with the money and that very process opened up a space of possibility within her that was not there prior to the giving.
Receiving, a gift we offer to the one who is giving.
Soul Musings is a 31-day practice for the month of December immersed in deep listening to what is emerging and unfolding day by day. Eight sentences with occasional resources to explore more deeply.
Each post, invited by Soul, allows the words to emerge unscathed from prior planning, editing, or censorship. Dwelling in uncertainty and dipping a toe into mystery this union of words is an attempt to resonate within an innate way of Being…. returning “home”.
To receive daily posts simply sign up for this blog and you will be notified through e-mail. In addition there will be daily posts on the blogs below. Thank you for being part of this practice with me!
