Is it possible for me to be simultaneously open and receptive to life’s good, to be ready and willing to receive the good of the Universe while also being distrustful or limiting my contact with the world? I don’t think so. In order to receive fully, I must be fully open. In my openness there is both great strength and great vulnerability. It is not easy to remain open and to have faith in the midst of moments that can feel threatening. When I manage to do it, I find that my openness is an invitation to extraordinary gifts.

A Turkish proverb says, “He who builds himself a fence, fences out more than he fences in.” Fences are territorial markers that often can easily be gotten around. Do I really need fences in my relationships? It’s something I have to examine all the time. It’s not an easy question to answer. Safety can be as much an illusion as the threat.

Today I tear down any fences I have built to keep others out. I let in the good that is seeking to find me. I am open to understanding ideas and people that I have previously opposed. Today, through my willingness to be open and receptive I move the world in a direction well beyond tolerance to understanding, compassion and acceptance.

Every day in every way I am opening to a life of trust and faith in the Truth that sets me free. I’m not interested in playing small anymore. I have had enough of suffering!

Affirmation:

I AM open to receive!
