The blessings of being receptive

My cousin lives next door, and when we are about to share information about property or repairs, or request assistance from each other, we often smile and say to one another, “Are you in a receive mode?” This helps both of us make sure we’re paying attention, and prepares us for decision-making that may bring changes to how things are done.

Being open and receptive to new ideas and ways of doing things is essential to gaining more good in so many walks of life. Whether it’s basic property maintenance, academic education, the needs of our own community—whatever the situation or activity—a willingness to be receptive leads to progress and solutions. The same can be said for our willingness to be receptive to spiritual ideas, which can change our thinking for the better—it always leads to progress and spiritual growth.
