Receptivity is not something you can do. Receptivity is a natural open state.
Crystalline coral, a metascape by Lanon Prigge for Artful Contemplation
Receptivity can feel like unraveling, coming apart at the seams. To be receptive you let fall your garments and walk naked beneath the sky – fragile, vulnerable, exposed.
Drop the shields and weapons. Drop the existential security of past and promising hopes for future. This is the open mind. It is also the open heart. It is the open physical organism. This is because open – is open. Opening can never be a partial affair. It is all or nothing.
