“You might say, ‘How do I know if I’m in a receiving mode or not?’ And we say, you always feel good when you’re in a receiving mode. When someone offers you a compliment, do you receive it, or do you sort of just shrug it off? There’s something about believing that you must justify your existence through your effort or through your perseverance, through your struggle. And many of you just have not practiced the receiving mode.” Abraham [Excerpted from Spokane, WA on 5/19/01]
Learning to realize that we do not have to justify our existence through effort…that our Oneness/Existence is firmly established…negates efforting and enhances just allowing the good to flow. Remembering to gently monitor the input we are constantly receiving from our emotional take on the moment, conversation, experience or event allows us to flow with the flow. Nothing we seek is up-stream requiring efforting.
