If You Wish For Light

My words to meditate on today:

“To receive everything, one must open one’s hands and give”

– Taisen Deshimaru

~~~~~~~

“Everything comes to us that belongs to us if we create the capacity to receive it.”

– Rabindranath Tagore

~~~~~~~

If you wish for light, be ready to receive light.”

– Rumi

Religion4All is an idea: that every human being (no matter their race, religion, sexuality, social status, lifestyle, or any other possible factor) is LOVED by God; just … as … they are.

We all are loved by God, and NO religion or person has a monopoly on it. Every single person on this planet is loved equally by God … SO many are cut off from God because they are told they don’t belong. God loves everyone … we ALL are beautiful creations … we don’t need to cringe when we hear the words “God”, or “religion”, or their judgments … God LOVES us all!

There is no requirement to change in order to be LOVED by God, or to LOVE God. God is LOVE, and LOVE is God … period. There is no one who God loves more than anyone else … there are only those who choose to LOVE more … to love God more, and consequently then to love each other more. In doing so, we grow closer to God … and know God.

By opening our hearts, and minds to God (free of boundaries like religion, or social trends); by LOVING God … we are exactly where we are meant to be. If we maintain that openness, never allowing any person or event to make us close our hearts, we will be guided by God to be who we are meant to be.

In that space of openness we can then live a life of LOVE, and be guided to where we are meant to be … forever in LOVE.

I hace pondered a lot as to what “the capacity to receive it” entails.
Certain things I have wished for a long time – I thought I was “ready” to receive themlong ago, and yet, they start to happen first now…

Is it me opening my inner windows? Is it fate´s whim…?

We never know…

Curious, that was the same excerpt from those quotes that grabbed ahold of my mind as well. Sometimes it seems as if we might KNOW what it is that we want, or even need … and because we knew we therefore believe we are ready to receive it.

For myself, I found that “creating a space”, or having the “capacity to receive”, meant getting to a point where I was able to let go … to not strive to make whatever it was happen. To find contentment without it by going within and connecting with God … to just “let go”.

Then, suddenly, all these things began coming about that I had been trying to MAKE happen … simply because I had created that space within me … the space to receive whatever it was that would come … instead of trying to dictate what could or should fit into that space.

It is most definitely an arresting topic to meditate on :-). I’m glad that those things are coming to you now, and hope for the best in your life :-).

Peace and Love.

I spelled wrong: it is of course I HAVE PONDERED

I recognize this from my own experience:

…”simply because I had created that space within me … the space to receive whatever it was that would come … instead of trying to dictate what could or should fit into that space.”

That inner unutterable place inside…that inner “void”, that soothing transparence…

Tks for your words,

Julien
