Here is something I wrote as I was joined by Jesus in that way I call “receiving.”
“Thank you so much for the slow/fast arising of that response, the moment of waiting and the feel of the words coming before the words or the readiness of my hands to type. . . the moment of blur between. . . is it me or is it you . . . then the thankfulness for You. Thank you for joining with me.”
Even if you don’t hear words in the way I do, don’t you at times, feel this blur, or this slow arising?
Another day I wrote:
“Why do I linger and linger here, Lord? It is to be with you and to be with me, to be one with you and with me. It is the same. And what I need to live and breathe freely. To linger with you. My “true self” is one with you! You are the weight taken from my shoulders. You open up what is blocked in me.”
Even if you don’t hear words in the way I do, don’t you at times, feel the desire to linger? The lightening of the weight of the world, or of a decision, or the opening of what is blocked in you?
Yesterday I was reminded of these words:
You do not need to believe in the words nor the potential of the exercises to change your life, for these words enter you as what they are, not the symbols that they represent. An idea of love is planted now, in a garden rich with what will make it grow. C:3.9
These words enter you as they are, not the symbols they represent.
This is receiving.
