Gracious accepting: an important part of healing

An appreciation for the goodness and the expressions of love we receive is essential to spiritual progress.

Many of us like to think we're thoughtful and kind and have attained a certain level of graciousness when it comes to giving. But are we just as gracious when we're on the receiving end? After all, receiving is usually easier than giving, right? Not always!
